Since i'm a Michigan fan I always try to watch teams that have former Michigan players on them. I'm been keeping up with the Jaguars ever since they drafted Denard Robinson. Yes I know the Jags lost on Sunday, and did terrible. I wish Denard would've gotten more touches though. I know the Jaguars have been using him as a running back, wide receiver, and wildcat quarterback during the preseason. I think he is also a kick return man as well.
I also can't believe the Lions won! I'm not a diehard Lions fan, but since I live in Michigan I always want them to succeed.
Happy 20th Anniversary Pokemon!

Yet another easy week in the top 25
when you look right down to it, the last few titles SEC teams have won were against sub-par or crippled teams (Colt-less Longhorns playing a freshman QB, an ND Team that never should have been in the Nat'Championship game in the first place).
I don't see why people are suddenly crediting the SEC to be the top conference when in reality, this has only been the case for maybe the last half decade.
Btw to add, when you have a Big 12 team (A&M) who has traditionally been the punching bag for years in that conference, beat the top dog in the first year (Alabama), you know something is up. I would like to see Alabama play some more fast paced offenses than playing the slower paced, ground based, defense heavy games most of the SEC plays.

The sec jealousy is palpable today. Save it haters. We've heard it all before.
I'm biased towards the SEC and even I think Alabama and maybe LSU's recent success is causing people to overrate/overrank some of the SEC teams.

Sure, I think there are some good teams in the SEC. But are they better than EVERY collegiate football team in the nation? It's hard pressed to say that.
I am curious to see how the SEC plays against teams that actually throw the ball much more often. A&M came from a conference where spread offense was king, so naturally their defensive and offensive weapons are geared to protect/implement the pass. They tore Alabama's secondary apart last year. And most likely, they will do it again (a part of me doesn't want them to do it again, Manziel does not deserve one ounce of the credit he gets, and you would hate Aggie fans too if you had to deal with them. They are some of the most disrespectful, unsportsman like fans on the planet).
Want to take a look at a fine gone wrong, take a look at Lavonte David's late hit
THAT was fined. Heck it was a borderline penalty.
I can't see how people can make a case for the Patriots this year. Looking at the first two games, they might struggle to win their own division...how sad. Just kidding, i'm loving every minute of this.
Pats will struggle a bit, but they still have Tom Brady, and with Tom Brady and Belichick, you always have a chance.
U mad bro?
Patriots have lost alot of key players as well as the ravens, this season will probably go durn to Seattle and the 49ers but as a hard core packers fan I can't go for either one lol
I can't wait for Brady to retire. The only chance the Jets have of winning their division is after he's gone. Last night was tough to watch, but this defense is looking awesome right now.
the offense... not so much.
That's going to be a terrible division once Brady retires. Kind of like the AFC West once Peyton retires.
