Pre-season is underway. I'm a big Raider fan!  R.I.P. Al Davis.

The new era starts Monday against the Cowboys.

RAIDER NATION!

3-0 win for the Cowboys.

Being from New England I root for the Patriots. The first preseason game was fairly ugly, especially the tomahawk which caused Brady to fumble. The O-line needs some work, hopefully with Mankins suiting up again things will look a bit better, but it is Solder who needs to keep Brady's blind side safe. The 31st ranked D last year can only go up, hopefully. Jones is looking scary coming off the edge.

I like the Raiders chances this year, if DMC can stay upright. That's a big if. The passing game could be dangerous with Heyward-bey and Moore, if Palmer finds some of his old form. I am unfamiliar with the D in Oakland but I always picture the Silver & Black as deadly.

At this point predicting the SB is a long shot but, as of today, I would pick GB and Pit, although NYG, damn Eli :nw: , and Bal have a good shot too. Don't overlook Hou and SF.

Football is back!!!

49ers and Chargers fan here.

Both lost today, Frisco against Minnesota 13-24 and SD against Atlanta 03-27.

Ouch! after both started 2-0.

I am a Baltimore, Dallas, Green Bay, New Orleans, Oakland, Pittsburgh, and St Louis hater.

I also like New England and New York (Giants) though not a true diehard fan sorta way.

"I charge thee in the sight of God, who giveth life to all things, and of Christ Jesus, who before Pontius Pilate witnessed the good confession; that thou keep the commandment, without spot, without reproach, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ: which in its own times he shall show, WHO IS THE BLESSED AND ONLY POTENTE, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS; who only hath immortality, dwelling in light unapproachable; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honor and power eternal. Amen" (I Tim 6:13-16).

Vikings fan here...I predicted 4 wins...looks like they may be better than that. Ponder may be a good QB. Other than that I am rooting for the Pats and 9ers and rooting against Detroit, NYJets, Seattle, and NO. Been a good season for me so far...

Life long Bills fan, until 2008 when I could no longer handle Ralph Wilson's decisions. I now actively root against them. Chris Berman once said "nobody circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills"...problem is the wagon's been going in cirlces since 1999 now. I'll decide my future when they have a new owner.

He's being paid like an average QB. Which is what he is. They have no other QB. Its not the worst deal these clowns (ralph, buddy nix, chan, russ brandon) have made.

Hmmm I thought he got a pretty sweet deal after a few good games...maybe I am mistaken.

Well yeah they overpaid for him, but since they were 20 million under the cap who cares? Ralph has to pay for someone. I look forward to 2013 or 14 when the salary floor kicks in and they're forced to pay the guys.
