Originally posted by CajunManBoy everyone picking the Cowboys now? I mean I know it is only preseason, but that performance vs Houston Sat. was awful. Didn't the Cowboys already job to the Raiders too?
And the Jets?? Wow
Number of people picking the Cowboys in this thread = 1 Importance of preseason results = 0
For further evidence of the latter point please refer to points scored and wins recorded by the Bills and Rams over the weekend.
Just to keep you happy though, *I* will pick the Cowboys.
To get to the Super Bowl anyway, where they will lose to New England.
Beyond that I have few predicitons. I like the look of Green Bay this year and they could go a long way. Like others in this here thread I'm unconvinced by the merits of the Jets and I'm not sold on the Ravens neither.
Mostly though, I fear that I will spend much of this year being disappointed in Kevin Kolb. I hope I'm wrong.
Ladies and gentlemen, the following public service message is brought to you by your friends from D-Generation X, who would like to remind each and every one of you that if you're not down with that, we've got two words for you... AFC EAST ----- N.Y. Jets  New England Miami Buffalo

AFC WEST ----- Denver  San Diego Oakland Kansas City
NFC EAST ----- Dallas  N.Y. Giants Philadelphia Washington
NFC NORTH ----- Green Bay  Minnesota  Chicago Detroit
NFC SOUTH ----- Atlanta  Tampa Bay  New Orleans Carolina
NFC WEST ----- San Francisco  Arizona Seattle St. Louis
NFC PLAYOFFS ---------- Atlanta def. Tampa Bay San Francisco def. Minnesota ===== Green Bay def. San Francisco Atlanta def. Dallas ===== Green Bay def. Atlanta
SUPER BOWL ----- Green Bay def. Baltimore
The NFC South prediction will only make sense to anyone who's also a fan of one of its teams, but all historical precedent has it playing out exactly that way (since even I don't have the balls to pick the Bucs to win the division).
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

Jeremy Shockey had 4 receptions for 80 yards, and 1 touchdown last night in the Giants 34-17 win against the Texans. I think he's a lock for the Pro Bowl this year. Also, I thought Madden did pretty good last night, calling the game.
