    A WHOLE LOT of picks for Jerod as DROY. That much is interesting.

    Also interesting how many keep NE in contention despite the pre-season. WHat do they know that so many of us here don't? ;)

    they know the pre-season means absolutely nothing. ALMOST all of us here do too.

    That's especially true this year, coming off a long and stressful season for the team. I think BB has given the vets a break this TC and preseason and it will pay off in the end.

    Yeah, I know. I just have quite enjoyed everyone going mental over the obvious stuff when the coaches aren't watching the things we are.

    Jerod for DROY. I'm going to photoshop him eating a bowl of QB cereal.

    If I remember this correctly, the espn ANALysts didn't like this pick on draft day. Said it was too early, and would have been a better pick around 17-20.

    And now those same guys pick him for DROY... competency is something lacking in Bristol.

    I bet over on the Indy boards they are complaining how ESPN hates the Colts and are Patriots lovers. Wow, I am surprised how many of the ESPN analysts picked Jacksonville to win the division. Granted I am in that camp myself.

    If some of you think our OL is weak, check out the Jags-very slow and can't handle those Indy and Houston rushers. Texans will unseat Jags as 2nd best team in that division.

    So, you think the Colts will fall to fourth? Unlikely, second place is very realistic especially if Saturday is out for most of the season.

    LMAO. That's the fever here in Jacksonville too. It's just too bad that they are defnitely not going to win that division.

    I still think Jacksonville can actually win the division. Not that I think they have improved all that much, but I think the Colts have a lot of injury concerns and may be dropping off a bit to begin with. The Jags can get 11 wins like last year and that may be enough to win the division.

    I am too. I don't like it. I'd rather my Jags fly under the radar if they are to do great things.

    What the heck you talking about? In both games against the Texans, only 3 sacks were allowed, and in the games against Indianapolis about six were allowed. The first one was an anomaly as our backup was in and wasn't going to scramble around and make plays.

    It isn't a head to head match up that I am talking about. Especially with Saturday out at least for the beginning of the season and questions about Manning's knee, I can see the Colts losing 2-4 more games than last year. Even if they win the head to head match up with the Jags, I don't know if it is going to be enough to win the division. The Colts have a lot of injury concerns and the season hasn't even started yet.

    lol Rob. You are so into hyping up your Pats and putting down the Colts.

    Colts will win the division again as long as Manning is there.Stop buying the offseason hype.

    This is known as "Jack Del Rio" effect, a distant cousin of "el Nino".:D
