    Bet on the Eagles a few weeks ago for superbowl e/w at 17/1 when they were originally meant to be Nnamdi's landing spot and I thought they'd get something in the Kolb deal, Vicks health will be the main issue now I think

    Having Young as the backup makes it a lot easier if Vick does go down at some point. No need to change the system up due to the similarities in QB style.

    Come on, now, really? "Potential to be another Randy Moss." I think every team in the league would take that. The Patriots with Randy Moss were the most prolific offense the NFL has ever seen. And while they did win all their rings without a so-called "big time receiver", their best offensive year was with Randy Moss. And I know this is going to open up a huge can of worms, but I would say that was the greatest Pats team ever even though they didn't win the Super Bowl. Ochocinco is only going to do wonderful things for that team. I hate Belichick as much as anyone (I've had personal contact with the man, and trust me, he is a ****) but he and Robert Kraft somehow keep getting these wonderful players and doing wonderful things with them. I hate it.

    Re-reading this: I sounded kinda hostile. My bad. Didn't mean to sound that way at all.
    Don't worry about it. I understand the point you're trying to make. That Patriots team was downright sick. It should've won the Superbowl, yeah. And it was clearly one of the best offenses ever..it was a Madden offense.

    I'm sure Ochocinco will deliver. I just wouldn't pin the Patriots down as in the Superbowl as many people are gonna do now.

    that's a fantastic bet; they've crashed down to 8/1 now. shame really, as UK bookies dont always seem to get NFL odds right. i might have a pop on Indy at 20/1.

    does anyone else do nfl accumulators in here? i've found it can be pretty lucrative, especially because sometimes the bookies seem to have no clue with handicaps. i remember in week 3, during a saints/panthers matchup, they gave the saints a +3 handicap. LOL

    Ocho is a great signing-he's never really had any issues in camp or in terms of work ethnic so I doubt he'll be disruptive. Haynesworth is a bit more of a gamble but one thats worthwhile if they can tame him. The rotation options in that D-line are fantastic now.

    The Lions need to sign two more players-we're slipping behind here!

    Yeah I usually bet money line though not spread, less profit but easier, bill simmons does a weekly podcast in the season picking teams and accumulators it is usually pretty good

    Wasn't that the game we only managed to win 16 - 14, worryingly?
    They must have known something no-one else did... :P

    I've got £10 at 16/1 for the Saints to win the superbowl, wouldn't have done it if I genuinely didn't think we can do it this year.

    This free agency period has been insane so far. The Eagles have definitely gotten a lot stronger and will almost certainly feature in the play-offs. Doubt they'll get to the Superbowl though.

    Why do you think that? Personally I think they're (on paper) the best team in the NFL.

    The best team on paper hardly ever wins the Superbowl. Take last year for example. I don't think the Packers were the best team on paper in anyone's opinion. The Patriots, Steelers, Falcons, etc. were all "better" teams. I'm not saying that the Eagles don't have what it takes to win it all, I'm just cautious because I know talent isn't the be all and end all.

    im with you that they wont get there, partly though i dont think they are best team on paper even, near to it but certain other teams a bit better, vick for one wont have the shock impact of last year and people will scheme against him to limit just how effective he is, plus so many new individually good players dosnt mean they will be able to work well as a team, especially with the limited prep time compared to normal

    then of course you have to remember best team at start of the year on paper is only a few key injuries away from being a lot further back

    Yeah exactly, there are so many other factors that contribute to a winning team. As you said, there's injuries, momentum, the coaches, to a certain extent luck, etc. The Eagles won't get it done this year.
