    Which would make up for the fact that the 100 level is quiet as a tomb.

    I have no questions about Luck. The other two. Yeah, there might be some apprehension. I think Carroll and Schneiders faith in their draft pick might be the single handed factor behind Wilson's success. Their belief in him and what he is has pushed and propelled him.

    I've seen so many flashes of brilliance from Wilson and Kaep in their young careers, it's hard not to be in their corners. I'm not saying they're locks for stardom, but how people bet against them is beyond me.

    Trick question, they won't be playing in the Super Bowl.

    I think if they are going to do it, it will be up to their defense. But I think a healthy Percy Harvin will help. The best team in the NFC are the Saints. And they are going to be tough to stop in that conference.

    Bingo. And Rob Ryan has something going with our defense. Something thats been lacking for a couple years with the Saints.

    Gregg Williams was a good coordinator. His cheap tactics aside.

    He was very good. But his schemes were big gambles and relied on big plays.

    Wilson is still doing a great job with the talent he has at WR. Agree though that the Saints are the team to beat in the NFC.

    Saints and Broncos in NYC would be a great game.

    I think it might be too early to really anoint any team except for the Broncos. The Saints look good now and their schedule wasn't an easy one by any means, but they haven't had any great tests on the road until this week. Next week will be a new challenge @ NE. If they take care of business there too on the road, then I will start to believe they are the best team in the NFC. Looking at their schedule though Weeks 10-13 looks like a very tough stretch (DAL, SF, @ATL, @SEA). If they can go 2-2 or 3-1 during that stretch, their schedule gets a little softer and they have a very good chance at 1st seed in the NFC.

    Speaking of their division though, I am kind of surprised that Atlanta hasn't played better. They have been in every game though, so I kind of expect them to bounce back this month, but they are so far behind that the best they could probably do is a wild card. Still they are a team that you don't really want to face in the playoffs, especially if their RB and Roddy White are healthy. Other potential wild card teams that will be tough are SF/Seattle (who ever doesn't win the division), and after what I saw yesterday I would have to say Dallas.

    Lol. Where were you last year when GB was jobbed in perhaps the worst way I've ever seen an NFL game end?

    I root for Manning (the good one ;]). I'm glad he's having a solid season.

    Don't know if he'll win it all or not, but I'm a stats whore so I salute him.

    6-1

    I know I have knocked him a couple of times in this thread. But Seattle has their version of Brandon Roy in Russell Wilson. Think it might be time to drop the doubt and become a believer.

    That makes you less of a front runner? He's been playing for a long time. Are you from Indy? Tennessee? Denver?

    You're from Florida, right? What's wrong with the Jags, Bucs, or Dolphins?

    Sorry dude but what?

    I've liked him since day 1, try again. What's wrong with Florida? I'm not Florida's dog or Florida's bro, son.
