    I predicted 25 at best, so I'm really happy with the 23 mark. If we win again, I'm sure we'd take just as big a jump - up to 16 at least. All would depend on how big a win.

    The next Brett Favre?

    Exactly what I expected, and that's the problem with these power rankings... Regardless of where we are overall, there is no reason that after a 34-10 ***** slapping, that wasn't even THAT close, the Broncos should be ranked above us. Maybe if the game had been close, but the fact is that Miami straight up out-classed the Broncos, while not even playing that well (turnovers and penalties).

    the titans did SUCK on sunday, but to me the Texans take the cake. 70 yards passing. come on.... 70!!!!

    If you look at all the factors
    1. 4-12 last year
    2. new coach with zero NFL head coaching experience
    3. new roster
    4. Offensive and defensive schemes rehaul

    I could go on. My point is that these are things that get us excited... but they are also things that have lead to pour seasons, on many oocasions for many coaches/teams.

    We had talent last year.... but talent alone doesnt win games as we so well learned.

    We have to earn everything we get this year. And we won't earn it in 1 week.

    If this team stays focused.. and executes.. (I hate to say it)... we can compete with anyone. And we WILL get the accolades so many are seeking!


    It takes discipline to not formulate opinions about something WITHOUT KNOWING ALL THE FACTS.

    You can't go by just passing yards though. Steelers only had like 111 passing yards and they whooped butt. They ran though which apparently the Texans didn't do much of either

    If no pre-season ranking Min would be middle of the road.Miami would be top 10 based on performance.

    farve factor?? they have no O-Line, and no real defense. ant much Farve can do agenst the dallas defense. (only way they win is if they get a few TDs off INTs).

    Jets 16.... bills 18... STL 12!!!!
