    He certainly was at one point. The past two seasons he has been fairly turn over happy with way too many interceptions and fumbles. Granted, he has had a pretty terrible O-line blocking for him. This season the Chargers held tryouts for undrafted rookies for starting positions on the O-line. So it will be interesting to see what he can do in a year or two with a decent line protecting him.

    All the away teams.
    I would be floored if the Bengals come out on top of the Texans.

    Considering how the Texans have rapidly fallen, I would be shocked if the Bengals didn't take advantage of the situation.....But we are talking about the Bengals

    Then the rest of the AFC should step up and start running quality organizations. But then again, I'm a born and raised Boston guy. So I obviously would love to see Tom and Company get another crack at a ring.

    By the way... could use Norv Turner as an OC in Tampa. Be nice to see someone develop Freeman before he is destroyed.

    You can have him. Good riddance as far as I'm concerned.

    Well, you know, he might do alright so long as he has no say in what players to keep or let go and isn't allowed to call plays.

    My in laws are from Rhode Island and still live there. They get really obnoxious when it come to the Patriots. Therefore I have to root for whoever plays against them.

    jdev, how did you feel about the Chargers letting Brees go and keeping Rivers at the time?

    I wasn't thrilled with it, I mean there was nothing wrong with Brees and Rivers was unproven. But it pales in comparison to losing Vincent Jackson and some of the other talent they have let go in the past two or three years.

    I don't think Cutler is too bad. The only thing I don't like about him is his demeanour and the way he carries himself. Often times he looks like he's not bothered. He didn't do too bad considering that terribad offensive line.

    I agree it was a shame about Coach Smith. A lot of the players seemed to like him. Defense played great, but when the offense has some great players and ends up ranking near the bottom, that's not good enough.

    Hope they can regroup fast next season.

    Back on topic:
    I like the Redskins and Packers.
    Colts and Texans. I want to see the rematch between these 2

    The most compelling possible rematch: Green Bay vs Seattle, because of how that 1st game in Seattle ended.

    I was shocked to learn Ponder was pulled before the Green Bay game. That really ended any chance for the Vikings,

    I was shocked too. I definitely wouldn't have picked Minnesota had I known that would happen.

    I at least changed my pick in the pool with my co-workers.

    Man the Colts may have lost today, but they have come a long way considering where they were last season and what they went through this season with Coach Pagano. The future looks bright for them and I think I'll be rooting for them next season. Congrats to the Ravens. Looks like Ray Lewis has got at least another game to go.

    On the prediction side, hopefully the Redskins can salvage something for me
