I'm again disagreeing on picks against miami. Have you seen the Jags lately? It's just been horrendous.

Nope. He's out. We go with Sammy 'Steroids' Morris this week.

Speaking of steriods, I'll be paying attention to the San Diego game this week. Merriman is back.

First sack he gets, he rips the QB's head off, then throws the ball into the stands, where it proceeds to go directly through 8 fans.

Then he impales the QB's head on one of the goal posts as a warning to others.

So... which NFL team is the biggest mess at the moment? In my opinion its a toss-up between the Lions and the Giants. With maybe the Giants having an edge in the mess dept because of all the mouths on that team.

Depends on what you consider a mess.

These are the teams that I consider a mess. Detroit, Oakland, Cleveland, Tampa Bay, Arizona, Philadelphia, Giants.

Detroit is just horrible, Oakland is just run completely wrong(good defense though), Cleveland just can't seem to put it all together(Frye doesn't help), Tampa is past it's prime(Simms is not the answer), Arizona needs to work on the basics, Philly needs to fire Reid, and fire Coughlin and the G-Men, when healthy, are fine.

All the other teams in my opinion are in good shape. Tennessee, Jacksonville and Denver are borderline. All the others are either great (Indy, Bears, New England, Baltimore, Chargers), pretty good and getting better(Dallas, Cincy, Chiefs, Seattle, NO), rebuilding(SF, GB, Houston) or are just not having good seasons or are mediocre(Steelers, Carolina, Jets, St. Louis, Vikings)

All the teams in that bottom paragraph I believe are either there, or headed in the right direction. The top teams are just going to get worse before they get better.

Hmm. Thing with the NFL is, it's very easy to predict who's going to have a good season based on track record (Indy, New England, erm, maybe I'm forgetting someone). Similarly, it's easy to predict who's gonna stink (Hands up Lions, Cards and Raiders). But other than that, I get the feeling that week to week any team is quite capable of stinking the joint up or blowing someone out of the water.

Speaking of football, what's everyone's opinion of the BCS? I've been a fan for years now of the notion to move to a playoff format.

I think the BCS system is the stupidest thing in the world. Every other college sport has a playoff. Even 1-AA has a playoff. Hell, every major sport, even pro, has a playoff.

Look at a team like Boise St. In the current system, they have absolutely zero chance of winning the National Title. They are one of only two unbeatens in the in the country and they won't have a shot at the title. Or Wisconsin for example. The BCS states that only 2 teams from each conference can be in a BCS bowl game. Wisconsin is 11-1, the exact same as Michigan, Florida, USC, and yet with OSU and Mich gettin the bids, they have to settle for the Capital One Bowl, or something like that.

It also hurts teams that lose late, and reward teams that lose early. Look at LSU. They lost early to Auburn and Florida, and with a 10-2 record, they are still ranked higher than Louisville, Boise St. and Wisconsin, all which only have 1 or zero losses. They are also ranked higher than Notre Dame, who lost late, but both have the same records.

What they need to do is take the top 8-10 teams in the BCS ranking and put them in a playoff for the championship.

8 teams would look something like this.

Ohio St v. Boise St.
USC v. Wisconsin
Michigan v. Louisville
Florida v LSU

BCS=Boiling Cauldron of Sh..........

On Irish's football team deal---Arizona is an Offensive Line away from making serious noise. The have all the tools at the skill positions, and the defense isn't bad except they have to spend forever on the field due to the ineptness of the running game. If Edge can't run the football behind your line, you know you need help. SPEND EVERY 07 DRAFT PICK ON O-LINE!

Bring on College football playoffs. It works everywhere else, use the bowls as the games. There's too many anyways, who cares if two 6-6 teams are shut out of one. Waaa. A bowl game should mean you had a great season, not "Nice job, you're above .500".

And with Florida smacking Arkansas, it should be Ohio State/Florida for the title. Sorry Michigan, you had your shot at the 'Shoe.

Just want to say......AHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Take That Stupid Trojans!!!

ahem

As much as I hate Michigan, I think they are the only team that has a shot at OSU. They lost by 3 at the Shoe. That's pretty impressive. Florida lost @ Auburn by 10.

Auburn is not OSU.

In other news, the Bowl Games are gonna be odd. LSU-USC and ND-FL should be good. But then Wake-Rutgers/Louisville? Oklahoma-Boise St.? That's just craziness!!
