they won't be nearly as bad as Miami, Minnesota, Jax or the Rams.

SF@GB is gonna be a heckuva game..................SF should win, unless GB's defense improved tremendously. But then again, Which Alex Smith will show up, and can he keep up with Rodgers?

Pittsburgh@Denver should be interesting, to see how Manning fares with his new team, and if he get used to losing. Not sure Denver improved enough to beat Pittsburgh.

And, I'm pulling for the Cowboys, of course. Should be interesting, to say the least.

Should be a good game JD and I'm looking forward to it, a good measuring stick to see exactly where both the Bears and Colts are at going into the season, good luck and I raise my glass to toast and hope for a good injury free game.

Lock of the week: the Squaws of Washington will lose (in a most unmanly manner) to the Saints in the early games...

Don't forget Monday!Cincy* at Balt (Go EZ!)SD at Oak (not gonna pick against my team, but not gonna jinx it either - important Division game Week 1 - to say I'm worried is an understatement after losing to the Raiders twice last year).

Ripper Thanks!

It's not impossible too do,but i hope the Bengals have been playing possum,and all these 'injuries' are BS,[as with yer Team too] all divisional games are tough,no matter the records are. as Lovit'a a Raiders Fan? I will give ny best wishs too both of yer teams.

well I am 1 and 0 so far, I went out on a limb picking dallas to win in new york, but I had a feeling, even with injury, witten and dez bryant were gonna be big play makers. Cruz had some drops that were key factors in the Giants loss! Congrats Dallas fans!

Big story was Kevin Ogletree coming out of nowhere. I panned him pretty good as the #3 receiver. For now I eat those words. yummy!

It's why I really don't bother with "talking head".........LOL Especially this early in the season and only having pre-season game film to look at for judging where a team is at going into week one. On paper doesn't take several important factors into consideration.

It's not always how a team starts the season but how they finish, inter division games are always important, but none of us have crystal balls or we all would be millionaires, congrats to the Cowboys and their fans on a well earned win.
