Does anyone have any thoughts about teasm youu folloow for betting purposes. Any teams that you feel are either improved ot last year of retreated in talent.?

For example..my thoughts are

SF 49s have 23 new people on their roster thsi year. That s a huge percent. Will they have kinks to work out with all the new folks? I will sit back and watch this week(i wont watch....but view the stats) as far as the niners. And for greenbay...I am not sure if they improved at all. Any comments are welcome.

Jets- i will guess geno smith the rookie QB will throw 2 interceptions....and the jets arent good enough to overcome rookie mistakes

Giants--does manning have any weapons to throw to?...other than cruz.....if you are local let us know

I think patriots will take a step back this year, but still win the division...by default

KC is being hyped now that they have a qb....but I am not sold on alex smith outside of the SF system. They do have a great hometown statium crowd advantage...but in my opinion.....still not enough. I an guessing8-8 at best

Philly- QB may not last half the season...again

Seattle--best defense, will win alot of low scoring games

the first week.."the man" is having totals much higher than you will see in a few weeks, with the thought that defenses havent had film to prepare for the offenses. "Over" right now is not a good way to go in the first few weeks as the totals are jacked up to start/

The Steelers will be a 7-9 team this year. Last year the fans and media were watching the team that was on the field 3 years prior, not the team that is there now. By week 4 you will hear the fans chanting "Lets Go Bucs!" in the stands to show their disapproval.

With the way the league has been going I cannot remember a time I less cared about the new season coming. Enjoy things while you can, because in 10-15 years what you see on the field will have been forced by rule-changes to look like the Pro-Bowl we have now.

Attendance at live games will again fall by 0.5-1% as more people enjoy the home experience more than the live one.

Ralph Wilson will pass away and the call to move the Bills to LA will begin as soon as the funeral ends.

I think LA may never get a team for one reason. LA for owners is always the bargaining chip that owners use when they want to get what they want from local and state authorities. The threat of moving to LA is better for the owners than for the league to have a team there.

As a local I think the Carolina Panthers will be similar to the early 2000's Baltimore Ravens. Offense sucks but that defensive front seven is mean as hell. I still want the Panthers +14 against Seattle.

A couple of thoughts......

Of the 4 young (I state it this way since I think that Kapernick was a 2nd. year player???) QBs last year, who did well, RG3, Russell, Luck, and Kapernick, I believe that 2 of them will be busts this year. I would guess that the 2 who perform poorly will be RG3 and Kapernick.

Also, I think that Marc Trestman, with the Bears, has a real good chance of getting that team to generate some offense. Particularly with Forte running and catching. I would be leaning toward the overs in the early Bears games.

RG3 is nearly a 1000 yard rusher in his 1st year.
Add another 3000 yards in passing.
I would expect him to do as well as he did last year

Bears were 10-6 last year with Lovie Smith.
They scored a lot of points in the preseason
If the new defense holds, they're good

Always hard to bet against P. Manning, Rogers, Brady

Go Bears!

Kapernick is surrounded by a very good team. I dont see him tanking. Sf will have a target on their backsevery week as everyone likes to beet a superbowl team. I think with everyone circiling the SF date on the calander.......theywill get intensity every week against them...can they match that intensity every single week....I doubt it. I dont know if its going to be kapernick that faulters...or just the team not being able to take everyones best shot week after week.

I was just looking at everyones picks with interest. In week 1 any are valid as we dont have much togo on.

I noticed cleveland came up more than once...with at least one "confidence pick".....I wonder what people see in cleveland. Miami improved over the last year, and seems to be a decent road team.

Both QBs are iffy at best. Miami has a more balanced attack. I may take miami in a 2 team parlay. The under seems enticing as well.

obviouly this individualgame between 2 average/below average teams is not the kind of game I would put any serious money on.
