    New England is going to get Rolled by Ravens is my prediction… Brady is not looking good

    Fair enough on your prediction, but Brady had 4398 yards, 28 TDs to 13 INTS. I’d say that’s pretty good.

    Yes, those are good numbers from Brady, but do you think the lose of Welker will hurt the Pats? Guess not if you think they are Super Bowl bound!

    They are truly a team and not subject to individuals. Heck, they had an 11-5 record w/o Brady last year.

    I think Brady can get the Pats a win this Sunday. Aiken and Edelman will take up some slack. But the Pats aren’t getting past San Diego. You’re nuts putting Rivers and Brees at 7 and 8. There’s your super bowl! Nobody in the AFC can handle Rivers and his 6′ 5″ WR weapons, and the Saints will not lose at home again. And Lesean McCoy at #2? Gross!

    I wouldn’t be so sure to put the Chargers in the S.B. Not until their coach can prove he can win the big game.

    I think they both get bounced in the first round. Hate how the Saints have finished the year. Chargers are red hot, but the Pats will take em out.

    Not off to such a great start… Jets and Dallas move on. I think Dallas has potential to go to the NFC championship game and possibly superbowl. After NO and MINN they are the Vegas favorites. With that in mind, Austin Miles and Romo have to be ranked higher.

    Yes, yesterday was awful. I gave the Eagles too much credit and the Cowboys not enough. The Vikings are going to have their hands full.
