I'm Ready For Some Football

Yes, I still object to the idea of the annual "kickoff" game- since it's played on a Thursday following the pre-season, it still feels like a pre-season game- no matter how many glitzy rock acts perform beforehand. But at any rate, I congratulate Randy Moss and the Raiders on having the worst record in the league so far, and I sincerely hope they keep it.

On to predictions:

Playoff teams in the NFC will be: Eagles, Vikings, Panthers, Cardinals, Falcons, and Cowboys.

Playoff teams in the AFC will be: Patriots, Colts, Steelers, Chiefs, Bills, and Jets.

The Pats will once again get by the Colts in the playoffs- this time at Indy after Peyton and Co. gain homefield- and I'll somehow survive numerous death threats from my Philly colleagues after the Vikings play -and beat- the Eagles at the Linc in the NFC championship game.

But alas, "Minny"'s luck will run out in Detroit, as the Patriots win Super Bowl XL and the three-peat. And I'll once again place a congratulatory call to my friend Brian Lowe, which I do on the once rare but increasingly common occasion of a Boston sports championship.

LOL!! The funniest thing I've read all day!!

Will the Vikings make the playoffs because of, or despite (pick one or more) an 8-8 record, a mildly retarded coach, no receiving corps to speak of, etc., etc.???
