As we all know PCH invented the "PCH is Burning" TD series and I don't mean to totally jack his thing, but I guess that's what I'm doing. Sorry PCH, hope you're cool with it buddy.
Anyway the idea is to write five thoughts per argument. Not so much a debate as it is a sharing of opinions. I'll do five, then you do five, then me again, then you and so on.
1. The Jets aren't as good as they looked.
Sorry Jets fans, but the 48 points NY busted yesterday has more to do with Buffalo being completely out of sync defensively than any kind of Mark Sanchez arrival or anything of that nature.
2. Green Bay's loss is not a big deal.
Yes, it was a statement win for SF. But GB will be fine; they'll still win 12,13 games easy. Minor setback against a really good SF team.
3. Gabbert is pretty good.
He is. His rookie season is over and he's a lot better than we could've guessed. Reminds me of Aikman's start...
4. Peyton - best QB ever.
He'll own every noteworthy passing record when he's done. He's a machine.
5. Chandler Jones - DROY.
This beast is going to produce like mad for NE. I'm thinking 12 sacks and a ROY award.

1. Replacement refs are horrible.
Just in the SF-GB alone did the refs miss plenty of calls. Pass interference calls called incorrectly, a missed block in the back call, false start calls not called (and obvious ones, too). Just pathetic. Problems in other games, too.
2. Brandon Weeden is just as horrible as everyone thought.
4 INTs, 0 TDs and a horrible accuracy percentage. And yes, nobody is surprised by this. It isn't like his receiving core can help him out any, but he has to help himself. He even got tackled by the American flag before the game!
3. Don't worry about Stafford
There's no need to worry about Stafford. He had a bad game, but the Lions still have one of the top offenses in the league. He'll bounce back after his 3 interception performance.
4. Bills are in trouble
David Nelson was injured in the game and is going to miss the rest of the season. Not only will they not have him for the year, they won't have Fred Jackson for a month-plus.
5. Saints miss Sean Payton
The Saints definitely miss Sean Payton... Seemed like a complete different team and Drew Brees wasn't himself. I say it's concerning for the future.

1. Tim Tebow is going to have a quiet year.
I know, I know... The Jets "saved" the good stuff from their Tebow package because they didn't need it. Regardless, Sanchez is going to see almost all of the playing time and the 2012 season will end with Tebow being "remembered" for blocking for the punter.
2. The NFC East is going to be really tough.
NY lost and the Eagles barely escaped C-Town with a win and no pride, but in the long run the East is going to be really tough. Each team has a chance to win the division and it looks like all teams will have reason to be motivated this year.
3. Matt Ryan is going to be the MVP.
Between Ryan's plethora of receiving options and new OC Dirk Koetter, Ryan is going to throw - a lot - this year and he'll throw deep plenty, especially to Julio Jones. Expect 5,000 yards and about 40 TDs for Ryan, who will ultimately beat out JJ Watt for MVP.
4. Kevin Kolb will be Arizona's starter.
For one thing, John Skelton sucks. For another, Kolb proved he can run Arizona's offense in crunch time.
Alshon Jeffery is Megatron 2.0.
This guy is going to have a HUGE season. Great size, speed and hands.

1. Russell Wilson's receivers won't bail him out.
Wilson wasn't able to catch a break this weekend with his receivers not being able to catch anything in the closing minutes of the game that cost Seattle a victory.
2. Get used to seeing RGIII all over.
This guy is good. Not only did he have an impressive performance against the Saints this weekend (19-for-26 passing, 320 yards & 2 TDs). He also got the victory. He won't be going away and Pierre Garcon will be heard about a lot.
3. Be concerned with Chris Johnson
Remember two years ago when he was boss at the top of the league at running back? It looks like he's going downhill and won't keep himself there. Another bad performance by him and he didn't look good either. Couldn't elude anything the Patriots threw at him. You can just tell it's going to be concerning for the rest of the year.
4. Green Bay has no running game, yet again.
Cedric Benson looked like absolute garbage and Aaron Rodgers rushed for more yards than him. Rodgers will lead the Packers in rushing yards. I have no doubt about it.
5. BJGE is going to be dangerous.
Are you watching tonight's game? Always producing yards.

1. Denver may have found a winning formula.
Peyton throws the ball to start the game to take an early lead, and then Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil cut loose on the opposing QB as he tries to play catch-up. So far, so good. Curious to see if it continues.
2. The Bengals need to be very wary of a sophomore slump.
They looked awful vs. the Ravens tonight. Could be that the Ravens are just that good; could be that Dalton and Green & Co. aren't working quite as hard because they found success in year one.
3. LeSean McCoy is the perfect RB.
He can do it all. Shady could finish with 1,600 rush yards and another 600 receiving with 25-30 combined TDs. Great, great player and Reid will find a way to utilize him frequently.
4. Trouble in Chi-Town.
Forte runs the ball until they get to the goalline, at which point Mike Bush comes in to vulture the easy TDs. Forte doesn't like it, and with the history there of Chicago hesitating to give Forte what he wanted, this may end badly.
5. Newton's woes.
Cam won't be as good this year, mainly because teams know that he finds rythym through scrambling. Teams know this and will stop Newton.

1. Ryan Tannehill won't be doing anything special this season.
Put up a QB rating of 3.1 with 20-for-36 passing, 219 yards and 3 INTs. The only receiver he had that actually caught everything thrown his way was Reggie Bush. He's the only offense in Miami.
2. Cutler-to-Marshall will be a great QB-to-WR combo this season.
Already in their first week together they seemed to already be on a rhythm. 15 targets, 9 catches for 119 yards and a touchdown for Marshall. They're going to be dangerous, especially against the bad pass D of the Packers.
3. Steven Ridley will be a huge threat in NE.
Ridley had 125 rushing yards on 21 carries. Watch him be a huge threat in the Patriots' offense, especially in the running game. He also had 27 yards on 2 catches receiving.
4. Adrian Peterson will return back to his normal self this season.
With the injury he suffered last year, this year he shouldn't be doing well. But game one disproved that... 2 TDs, 84 rushing yards, 17 carries.
5. Expect McFadden to be heavy in the pass game.
Just look at what happened against SD. He had 13 receptions, 18 targets and 86 receiving yards. Expect that to continue.
