    Lester how you gonna keep the Cowboys out of it?? Have you no faith in Romo?? Neither do I, I’m hoping Marion Barber is the offensive focus this year. Everything else looks good and seems very possible.

    Pretty solid picks. Hard to argue with them. Although I don’t know if the Giants have enough to get back to the super bowl.

    damned you and your good points Lester lol

    I have no faith in Romo either, that’s why I’m hoping Barber and Felix Jones become the focus of the offense.

    anything is possible, especially with that Independence Day scoreboard hovering over the field.
