    If too many more experts talk about us being a surprise team, then it would seem like we are not that big of a surprise. I know I shouldn't be, but I'm amazed how many experts are picking the Pats to win it all again this year. How many years in a row do the Pats have to get throttled in the Playoffs before the Pats worship stops? They haven't won a SB since 2004.

    And what is wrong with that? Not jus b/c I hate on the Cowpies, but they WOULD surprise the hell out of me if they could even make the playoffs. Its a good surprise pick, but Philly turning out not to be the Dream team would be more of a surprise.

    Vtech ehh... I like alot of College teams but im not on with their burgundy color scheme. They like the Seahawks of the NFL, most atroucious. Hmm me thinks I have been watching too much of Guy Ritchies Sherlock Holmes.

    Sure. It would surprise me if the Lions made it too. And that's about as likely as the Cowboys making it...

    I agree with him.

    I'm surprised how they managed to spend so much money during the uncapped year, yet achieve so little. ;)

    How can they be considered a surprise when they have the 4th highest odds to win the SB? If vegas thinks they are a favorite, then they can't really be a sleeper IMO

    I wouldn't be surprised if Philly disappointed this season. It would be cool for them to be rewarded for their efforts, it took a lot to put together a talented squad, but I see them as a wild card playoff team.

    I like flying under the radar too, but my hopes for this team are higher than they've been in a few years. If we can escape the injury bug, this could be a special season.

    Just like the Jets who have been trying to buy a championship, the Eagles will fail also

    I don't really see what difference flying under the radar makes. There was actually a lot of hype for GB prior to last season and they ended up winning. The only thing I can see is if the Chargers players start listening to that hype.

    After ESPN's darling team gets beat, they'll analyze the crap out of that game.
