    Not with Philbin coaching this team. Get us a quality QB and we're right in the playoff mix.
    I just try to be myself, whatever that is. I don't think about how I'll be remembered. I just want to be consistent over a long period of time. That's what the great players do.

    You can't deny we have a very good team...I don't understand how the jets are sooooo much closer than we are..Alan Faneca,Mawae isn't there anymore.I believe we are closer to competing than cell dwellers.

    Well we are favored to win the Super Bowl over half the league 15-16th I believe. 30 to 1 odds. Still middle of the road, but if we get ourselves a competent quality starting QB either in the draft or thru FA, then we've gotta be in the hunt for the division at the very least. There IS pretty good talent on this team...just not where we'd like it to be. Shoring up the right side of the OL and FS positions will also help. I think New England takes a step back next year (most Super Bowl runner ups do). Plus, that aging defense is gonna come back and haunt them soon enough. The rest of the AFC doesn't look super tough aside from the AFC North.

    The Jets took a step back hiring Sparano to call the plays. He will not have confidence in Sanchez, so they will be ground and pound. IMO, They can be successful with that, it can make them competitive, but they will have trouble scoring points. The Jets defense is not as good as 2010 either. They have some serious problems.

    We still need a QB coach.

    This is a joke, right? VICK is d*(k; ROMO's a creation of the Media, who can be counted on to choke in crunch time against anyone even mediocre; CUTLER's overrated, and can't beat anyone good; FREEMAN has been exposed; STAFFORD's at the "potential" stage; BRADFORD's a joke in disguise; and NEWTON has one year, and now everyone knows "what he's got", so we'll see. I count exactly THREE (3) topshelf QBs in the NFC. The rest are competent pretenders/unknown quantities. NONE of them are close to BRADY--not even CLOSE!! And i'm'o, NONE are close to Big BEN, either. If he had a solid OL instead of the STEELERS' p/o/s, it'd be much more clear. The NFC has a LOT of POWERFUL TEAMS...NOT necessarily a lot of powerful QBs. In fact, I count 3, w/at most--AT MOST--2 "maybe"s.
