    Jerry!!!

    This may be your year.

    Your Boys are looking like the best team in the NFC. I know it's early, but barring any major injuries, there is no reason why the Cowboys will not go to the Super Bowl.

    However, the Patriots are looking scary good. Just hope your Boys don't have to play them in the Super Bowl.

    My Steelers are toast. They were toast even with Roethlisberger. They have no running game, no defense, no receivers, and Ben looked old at times.

    It will be kind of refreshing watching Mason Rudolf at QB the rest of the year (he's from Oklahoma State, your neck of the woods...lol) Hopefully he can play like some of the other good young QB's in the NFL.

    I don't think Roethlisberger will ever play again. He's 37, and has been talking about retiring a lot before his injury.

    The Raven's Lamar Jackson has 7 passing TD's this year in two games.

    Last year, he had 6 passing TD's for the entire year.

    I don't think anyone saw this coming.

    Looks like Eli may get benched.

    With Ben out for the season, Eli benched, and Rivers not playing good against the 49'ers, that great QB class of 2004 may be in its final hour.

    That 2004 QB class (Roethlisberger, Eli Manning, and Rivers) never came close to matching the great 1983 QB class of Elway, Marino, and Kelly.

    Scary Stat: All six QB's combined from both classes have the same amount of Super Bowl wins as Tom Brady does by himself.

    What about these point spreads?:

    At New England -23
    NY Jets

    At Dallas -21.5
    Miami

    I am going to have to take the points in both games.

    That's a lot of points...and you have the dreaded starting qb down thing going on, which can be problematic. That said, last year the Pats thumped them 38-3 at NE. . . but could only muster a 14 pt win on the road.

    The year before they won by 20 at home and 7 on the road.

    So recent history is against them. And if there was any qb play to rely on, along with AB, I'd say this one might be even closer. But the qb position is what? And there's an addition on the Pats that could kick things up a bit, along with the fact that we're early in the season, so Brady is fresh.

    If they're ever going to put a stomping on the Jets, this would be the game. But history is against it.

    At Dallas -21.5
    Miami

    I am going to have to take the points in both games.
    No recent history here, only a recent history of horrible, garbage effort by a stripped down Fins.

    The Cowboys only put up 18 more than the woeful Giants at home. They beat Washington by 10 on the road...Miami is a very bad team. But are they that bad? Last year the Cowboys only double digit road margin came against the Colts. It went 23-0. So there is precedent.

    The chance is that one of these will cover. Vegas is showing 70% of the action favoring the Pats cover and 68% for Dallas.

    I'm going to go nuts and take Dallas to cover and the Jets to make it more interesting.
