After two weeks, only seven teams at 2-0 (with maybe two more in Minnesota and New York).

It seems like the only thing we can still count on is that Arizona and Cincinnati suck, and even Cincy nearly beat the Raiders this week.

I'd much rather have parity and an "anything can happen" feel in the league than not....well, almost anything...I still say Arizona goes 0-for this year.

Yeah there is a lot of parity in the Nfl this year.I boldly said at this message board that Tampa Bay would be upset by the Carolina Panthers this week and I was right.Heck theres even parity in my fantasy football leauge, noone had a good week! Im just glad that the Dolphins beat New York on the road and got that monkey off their back.Anyone think Miami can go 15-1?-------Yeah right.

At least someone can make predictions....Jamal Lewis said he would break the single game rushing record this season, and he did. 295 yards? What was the Browns' D smoking?

And if Carolina can beat the Bucs, the Boys can beat the Giants.

The best part is that he should've had more yards. He lost 20 when the refs called a ticky-tack push in the back call on Marcus Robinson that turned his 68 yard TD run into a 48 yard run. And on top of that, I think he didn't have any more than 15 or 20 yards in the 3rd quarter.

And next week? San Diego, who gave up 129 to Portis in the first half.

Hopefully, I don't eat my words tomorrow, but I think the Boys are dead tonight. The Giants just have too good a D to screw up against a (still) unproven quarterback.

And yeah, Jamal Lewis predicts that he'll break the rushing record, THEN DOES SO?! Man, the Browns' egos must still be hurting bad after that. I can just picture every decent-to-very good tailback in the league circling Cleveland on their schedule.

The best part of me. They guy in my fantasy league that was going against me had Jamal Lewis ON HIS BENCH. The two RB he played combined didn't match Lewis.

As for parity, I like that we don't have 2 or 3 teams dominating for years and years... But the NFL seem too much parity and all the teams seem interchangeable. You have a few really bad teams. but no REAL good teams

The Natti coming with an eyelash of defeating the Raiders!... One thing IS for certain, Arizona are horrendous, what getting over the hill Emmitt Smith isn't helping! LoL
whatever

Parity is a great thing - it gives the ability for every team to have a chance to win it all...


... except for the Browns, who shall forevermore suck. What a crappy, crappy game. This year is over, fold it up and go home.

The Cardinals are sunk too, but they don't even try so they don't count. The Bengals will get better, unfortunately.

What's unfathomable is that the Cardinals, in spite of their suckitude, are still getting a new stadium.

They are getting a new stadium, but they almost blew that too.. the place they are building it was their last choice, and they were forced into it after a year of messing it up and almost missing the deadline for using the public funds...

We in Phoenix dream of parity in the NFL...Of course, we still have $14 million under the cap which is doing a lot to help us at the moment...
