Football season is upon us, so chat here about what's happening with your favorite team and the NFL in general.


First of all I want to say that my team is the Buffalo Bills. I live near them and have followed them since OJ "the killer" Simpson was a 'playa'

I will also say that they have no chance of a winning season since the play Denver, Pittsburgh, New England, Jets, Dallas and Baltimore in their first 6 games.

My team be the Vikes.

To be honest, I doubt we're Super Bowl contenders this year. We have a very weak Receiver core and an inexperienced QB. Our run game will be sweet though. Chester and Adrian should both have great seasons.

Defense should be interesting. We had the #1 run defense last season but the #32 pass defense. We've obviously made changes to the passing portion, so if that shapes up we'll have a Hell of a defensive team.

Our division is weak, aside from Da Bears. I'm hoping we can keep up with them and reach the play-offs.

Also, other teams I'll be watching this year:

Raiders: Been a fan of the silver and black for 7 years now. Although they lost Moss I'm still a supporter of the most ruthless NFL team ever.

Patriots: The team Moss went to is without a doubt the best NFL team on paper this year. I just want Randy to have a Ring, that's all.

Saints: They were fun to watch last season, so I'm hoping there is more to come from Brees and company.

GO BRONCOS!

Yes, SB contender. I don't think they will, but they most definitely could.

The young QB only needs to manage the game and pick up the 3rd down and 3+ yds... which he most certainly can. He's got a boatload of quality WRs, two good TE, and two RBs out of the backfield for those plays.

Otherwise, the running game will dominate and the defense, holy crap... they'll score more than the offense.

Go Raiders! I'm hoping that Davis will let Kiffin do his job and that the Raiders will win more than two games this season.

My Bills team DROPPED most of their defense from last season. Takeo Spikes, London Fletcher and Nate Clemmons are all gone. Spikes and Fletcher lead the team in tackles consistently, so this year will be frightful. But they made huge improvements on the O line and drafted Marshawn Lynch at RB to replace Willis McGahee.

Whodey!!! Chad Johnson, T.J. Houshmandzadeh (whos yo momma), and the other recievers along with Carson Palmer, then with Rudi Johnson as the running back, they've gotta be pretty good.

The BILLS beat the Saints! Ok, so it was just an exhibition game...but it may be their only win this season.
