Game of the year so far. If Rodgers is going to falter, you would think it might be this game. I'm a little surprised that Dallas' D wasn't more formitable last week, so it'll be interesting to see whether they do any better this week.

Pats-Fish should be an ugly game, but I'll be very surprised if they don't pull it off. I'd take the points if I were betting, though; I don't see them winning by 12. This is going to be a season of 17-14 games.

I took the Cowboys in that game. I think they'll win by 13...

Wow! I'm shocked. Unless the 'boys fold, they'll roll 'em and smoke 'em like they did last year.

The Packers haven't been tested yet this year. This week will be very different for them.

I will say this. Rodgers did play well last year when he played the Cowboys when Favre was hurt. They've got some tape on him now and will develop their game plan based on that. I don't think he'll be running free this time.

I think we'll start to see if it's the NE system or people will maintain that Brady is the best QB EVAR!







ooh maybe not

For those championships, it was the system + great QB. Now it is the same solid system, but I highly doubt this QB is anymore than half as good as TB...

I really don't know on the GB/Dallas game. I think it's more of a pick-em game to me. I could see either one win and not be surprised but I think it'll be an entertaining game.

It'll be interesting to see how Rodgers does when behind. Does he do Favre stunts (chancy tosses/picks) or try and approach it calmly. This could be that test if the Packers db's fail and pressure isn't on Romo.

Cowboys vs. Packers? I hate it when either of them win, so I'm hoping for a tie.

A tie is a moral victory when you're a Lions fan.
