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...
I used to listen to MNF on radio a ten years ago when it was Jack Buck and Hank Stramm. I'd blow off the tv sound and just crank up the AM radio. They were insightful, funny and the best football announce team I've ever heard.
