It sucks to be a Skins fan right now, but it's great to be a Ravens fan.
Yay for Maryland having two teams!

Wow, the Bolts, Colts, and Dolts - er- Bungles are sure looking like the class of the AFC in this young season. In the NFC, I am liking da Bears and the Vikes so far. So good to have the season in full swing!
Yay for Cleveland - the best of the worst in the AFC! *sigh*
I don't normally post in NFL topics because I don't watch the NFL that much. But I do have to say Hell Yeah to Rex Grossman so far. I knew he wasn't just another Florida QB that would fail in the NFL but nobody would listen.

Let's get him more than a year's worth of starts under his belt before we declare him a good QB.
Going back and looking at last year's week 2 playoff seedings and how they fared... (Click Here (The W)):
Indy, Pittsburgh, and Cincy (all 2-0) were correctly called. Somehow the Jets and Bills beat out New England for playoff spots (all teams 1-1) and Kansas City was ranked #1. (2-0 record). Denver and Jacksonville were middle of the pack at 1-1.
Surprisingly, 5 of 6 teams here were correct! Tampa Bay (2-0) and Chicago (1-1) would go on to win their division. The Giants and Redskins (both 2-0) were flip flopped. Somehow, Seattle (1-1) claimed a wildcard beneath San Francisco (also 1-1). Carolina was buried at #12.
So 8 of 12 post-season teams were correctly projected at this point. I can see New Orleans, Baltimore, and San Diego being ranked highly by virtue of easy schedules thus far. As for "playoff contenders" Miami, Carolina, and Washington, it sucks to be 0-2.
You believe me, don't you? Please believe what I just said...
Seems to put him pretty much in the 2nd tier of QBs (behind Brady, Manning & co) which is probably about right. What he, or at least his agent, is reported as originally hoping for (about $9m extra) probably was optimistic.
