    Bay Area teams head class of the hopeless

    Bush, Brees aren't enough to turn fortunes of the Saints

    ......

    Here are the early candidates to let down their fans the hardest.

    1. Oakland Raiders
    2. San Francisco 49ers
    3. Buffalo Bills
    4. Houston Texans

    5. New Orleans Saints — Even with Bush and new quarterback Drew Brees, Saints fans are in for another disappointing season. Bush and Brees could make it more exciting than normal, and simply playing at home will provide the city a much-needed lift. But this team can’t compete in the NFC South division with Tampa Bay, Atlanta and Carolina.

    The defense can’t stop the run and the offensive line will make Bush earn his money, assuming Bush shows up on time. The return of Deuce McAllister will make new coach Sean Payton work overtime figuring out how to get both Bush and McAllister enough touches. Too bad one of them doesn’t play defense. At least Saints fans are used to disappointments.

    6. Tennessee Titans
    7. Arizona Cardinals
    8. Detroit Lions

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Normally, I do think AZ belongs on that list, but this year they might actually have a chance. They better compete for a playoff spot, or Denny Green is gone.

    Oh .... and if I'd written it, Green Bay would be on that list.

    Even if one thinks he has something left in the tank, it sure isn't going to help a rebuilding team.

    IMO - GB should have traded him, then go with the kid at QB to see if he is the future. He is a "legend" in Packerland and with the media, but as far as stacking up against all time greats, I wouldn't put him in the top ten.

    Cheeseheads are going to suck with or without Favre this season.

    Yeah, Favre won't have a much better year than last year, which was pretty awful.

    Good read.

    Once the Packers lost Marco Rivera and Wahl - that is just too much to lose on the O-Line at once.

    Favre is acting like a little biitch in the process.

    Favre should tell the GM his intentions and stop trying to play GM himself. The dude has let stuff go to his melon.

    One has to wonder how long the fans up there in Green Bay stay loyal to him?

    The guy is a God up there, but they do want to win also.

    It will be intersting to watch ESPN, and at what point in the season do they start to boo him.

    Hopefully the Cheeseheads will wake up and realize that Favre pretty much cost them the 2005 and 2006 seasons.

    Since they were going to suck at 6-10 or less anyway for those two years, they might as well have done it with Aaron Rodgers learning the offense.

    The Cardinals, they do have all the players, but how much depth do they have?

    If everyone stays healthy, they could be the Team to beat, but if that injury bug starts to take its toll. They to could go to the top of this list.

    I'm going to have to add the Denver Goat Ball Suckers to that list because I hate those rat bastards.

    JMHO. :)

    Kurt is the key with AZ. With McCown gone (not that he was that good, just a solid fill-in), it's Kurt or bust. Funny, but with all of their acquisitions these past three years, I'm actually looking forward to watching the desert birdies this year on NFL Ticket.......IN HD that is. :tup:

    Raiders | 2005 fast fact
    Sun, 9 Jul 2006 07:45:56 -0700
    Bob Matthews, of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, reports the 2005 Oakland Raiders managed to score only 19 points off 19 takeaways last season and have finished last in their division in consecutive years for the first time since 1961-62.

    Patriots | Brady the king of comebacks
    Sun, 9 Jul 2006 07:48:07 -0700
    Bob Matthews, of the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, reports New England Patriots QB Tom Brady leads the NFL with 21 game-winning drives in the fourth quarter or overtime since 2001.

    Chiefs | Holmes new day; same story – career remains on hold
    Sun, 9 Jul 2006 07:00:51 -0700
    Mike Finger, of the San Antonio Express-News, reports Kansas City Chiefs RB Priest Holmes (neck) said Saturday, July 8, "everything is on hold" until doctors decide if his neck can withstand the rigors of a 10th NFL season. Although he appeared to be in good physical shape, he said he hasn't been able to work out and lift weights like he has in previous offseasons. Holmes, who made three Pro Bowls with the Chiefs, is facing the possibility of retirement. From most players, such an admission would spell the all-but-certain end of a career. But from Holmes, the man who battled back from three knee injuries and a gruesome hip displacement, it was just an acknowledgement that he once again has some work to do. Holmes still doesn't see his neck injury as a reason to quit. "I know it sounds funny to say it, but I've had the luxury of being injured before," Holmes said. "Most people don't see that as a luxury. But at least I know what to expect." Holmes said he wants to play another two or three years, but he said the decision on his future ultimately belongs to California spinal Robert Watkins. If the doctor determines taking the field is too big of a risk, Holmes said he won't fight to play.
