    Cowboys at 11-5 yet Giants and Eagles at 10-6? Giants have upgraded their D big time, Eagles have upgraded their O big time. Dallas has lost studs on both sides of the ball, did not upgrade their loses with like players AND drafted a couple of potential special teamers!!!!!

    And I guess you have the Pats at 14-2 since you are a Pats fan? That division is not a rollover like it was 2 years ago. VERY unlike Pats go 14-2, more like 12-4 or so, if even that.

    I agree with a lot of this post. However, I think the Chiefs and Broncos are going to do a lot better than the record you gave them. Not Substantially, but better. Maybe go 8-8 or 9-7.

    Remember McDaniels in many peoples minds including my own is the one true heir apparant to Belichick. He’s a true believer and turned down job offers to continue his education. Unlike Mangini…

    Also, I think Cassel is going to win more games than lose ’em for the Chiefs.

    Lastly I wouldn’t count out Jerod Mayo for Defensive Player of the Year. The kid is something special. Belichick has said that the most growth for a player is from their 1st – 2nd years.
