Wow, Dallas in the SuperBowl .........that's bold I will say. You should hustle on down to your local sportsbook, the Cowboys are currently at 25-1, up from their summertime 33-1 for some reason, grouped with the Bengals and the Bears at basically 10-12th.

My personal pick for the NFC would be a coin toss between San Francisco and Seattle, 6-1 and 8-1 respectively, with the Packers and Giants as my next picks. To be honest I think the NFC East is basically even, I see nothing to indicate that any one of the four teams as a clear cut winner. I see New Orleans being improved but no longer a dominant team and would expect better performances from Chicago and Detroit with declines for Minnesota and Atlanta. Washington and Philly are the big mystery teams, the Redskins could go 12-4 or 8-8 .

I don't follow the AFC much but the odds makers love Denver, even before last night, New England and Houston. I personally think the Chiefs,Bengals and Browns improving, Baltimore, Houston and Indianapolis declining. San Diego and Pittsburgh are my mystery teams.

Overall I think the NFC is vastly superior to the AFC, the AFC East is easily the worst division in football .

I'll call Seattle over Denver in the Super Bowl, but I don't have any realistic expectations that my guess is any more likely than any of 8-10 possible winners, none of whom will be from Dallas.

I also think this is the year the Cowboys put it all together. Austin and Murray are healthy for once (we'll see how long that lasts), Dez Bryant is entering another world, and Romo and Witten are still madly in love as far as I know. They made some upgrades on the o-line. Their offense should be top of the top.

But yeah the NFC is impossible to predict...so many good teams. Denver should win the AFC easy, Pats and Texans have already peaked, and I still think they're #2 and 3. AFC is a real pile of garb

Jets fan also, I want to be cautiously optimistic especially given that the Pats barely won, but being optimistic wouldn't really fall in line with being a Jets fan.

i used to think cubs fans were the most loyal, living forever on 1908. but truly, in football terms, living forever on 1968 ('69 super bowl but of course the 1968 season, that is a real problem btw) is more noteworthy. jets fans take the title as most loyal.*

*loyal is the nicest word i can think of. i don't really mean loyal.

^(He means stupid.)

I'll play:

AFC East - New England
AFC North - Cincinnati
AFC West - Denver
AFC South - Houston
Wildcard A - Kansas City
Wildcard B - Buffalo

NFC East - New York (football giants)
NFC North - Detroit
NFC West - Seattle
NFC South - New Orleans
Wildcard A - San Francisco
Wildcard B - Green Bay

I'll take New York (football giants) over Cincinnati. (Yes, I know that they committed 6 turnovers against Dallas, phoey.)

Green Bay and San Fran play brutal schedules this season, and I think it will be enough for a revamped and pumped Lions team to sneak the division title and for Russell Wilson's magic feet to bring hope to the Emerald City.

Denver is wonderful, but everyone is picking them this year. Everyone. Isn't there some "anti-wisdom of crowds" thing that matters? I don't know. Manning will figure out how to lose in January.

It is tough being a Jets fan. To be honest I have very little faith in Geno and kind of hope we have a top 2 pick this year and get either Clowney or Bridgewater. However the Pats looked very weak yesterday and with Vereen out I think we have a shot.

AFCE- Patriots (does anyone else even play in this division?)
AFCN- Bengals (honestly, i'm not buying it but the rest of the division looks worse)
AFCS- Texans (I think the colts take a small step back and there isn't anyone else)
AFCW- Broncos (clearly the class of a weak division)
WC1- Chiefs (best 2-14 team in history now with a real qb, a real coach and a good sched)
WC2- Ravens (best of the rest)

Texans over Ravens
Chiefs over Bengals
Pats over Chiefs
Broncos over Texans
Broncos over Pats

NFCE- Coweaggianskins (most probably all four finish at 8-8 and they break the nfl tie-breaker formula)
NFCN- Lions (it sounds weird saying it but reggie bush might actually be the difference)
NFCS- Falcons (saints defence just isn't good enough over 16 games)
NFCW- 49ers- (tough sched but they're just too good)
WC1- Packers
WC2- Bears

Lions overs Bears
Packers over Cowboys
Falcons over Packers
49ers over Lions
49ers over Falcons

Broncos over 49ers (man I hate picking favourites)

Packers did not do enough during the OS to improve their defense. Not taking anything away from SF as they are a great team, but GB looked just awefull against SF last weekend.

After Week One the NFC East looks weird. The Giants are a wreck. The Cowboys couldn't take advantage of 1st quarter TOs. The Redskins are pedestrian with an RGIII who can't run. And the Eagles petered out in the second half. Should be interesting.

Biggest surprise of Week One for me was Rex Ryan not being able to find a way to lose.

really? Rex Ryan is a very good coach. He probably deserves a lot of flak for his tattoos and weird extracurriculars, but this is a guy who took a team with primary offensive weapons Mark Sanchez and Shonn Greene to back to back conference title games, including playoff wins over Peyton Manning and Tom Brady.

He will almost certainly be fired after this season, but it'll be a mistake. He's definitely an above-average coach, even though he's ideally suited for defensive coordination. He's not the Jets' problem, our problem is that we finally managed to replace the Sanchez/Greene catastrophe with guys who might not even be better than them, although Geno's debut offered some promise.

I completely agree with Paul. I never understood everyone calling for Rex to get fired. The issue with the Jets isn't the coach, it's that there's no talent on the roster. No coach would've had a good season the past two years with this team.

Personally I think Rex is an above average coach. For some reason in all sports people like to take it out on the coach/manager when the team doesn't do well. Sometimes it is justified; the coach and players don't get along well. Most of the time the coach/manager is fired because it is easier than dealing with the real issue- the players on the team just are not that good. Granted, Rex is sometimes a little strange, but if you would put Belichick, Parcells, Lombardi, Walsh, Gibbs and Shula ( and any other legendary coach you like) as the Jets head coaches last season and they still would not have made the playoffs. You can't win with crappy players. There is a reason that the great Casey Stengel won all those World Series rings with the Yankees and set the single season loss record with the Mets. The Yankees had great players, the Mets had terrible players.

Rex's record as a head coach is 35-30. That's a .538 winning percentage. That's not all that great. He's not special as a head coach.

As a defensive coordinator he was pretty good in Baltimore. But as a head coach he's been just okay.

I guess that depends on how you look at it. he took two teams quarterbacked by mark sanchez to the afc championship game. that's an accomplishment. there's nothing wrong with the jets that some better players wouldn't fix. that's not on the coach. it's not like he's been a .530 coach with the 92-93 cowboys or 75 steelers at his disposal.

Jeff Fisher has the same winning percentage. It would take a certain kind of crazy to call him a good coach too. Wouldn't it?

Why would you be crazy for calling Fisher a good coach ? Fisher took Tennessee to the playoffs six times, winning an AFC Championship and coming within a yard of forcing OT in the Super Bowl. His team won 13 games in a season on three separate occasions, won three divisional titles and went to two AFC Championships .

At this point I have to wonder what you consider a "good coach" to be ? Do you have to be Belichick, Noll or Walsh to grade out as good on the Cowboymatt scale ?

here's why grading coaches exclusively by winning percentage is kind of silly: chuck noll is .566 lifetime. wade phillips is .573. which one would you consider to be the better head coach?

(hint: the answer is not wade Phillips)
