    Colt McCoy seems like a good kid but he just isn’t an NFL quarterback.

    Jaworski and Chuckie have New England winning ten or less, huh?
    With Bellichick, Brady, Moss, Welker, and a proven young player in Endelman, plus two stud tight ends, they think Brady is going to win “ten games with anyone” …… yet the Jets – with an interception leading Sanchez, and one target in Holmes – are good for more than ten???
    These guys prove time and again why everyone thinks they’re idiots.

    What’s the problem? They won 10 games last year.

    Jaworski has zero credibility.
    The only thing they had right was that the AFC East is going to be very competitive this year.

    I think Jaws and Gruden are hedging their bets with those predictions. Everyone’s on the Jets Lovetrain and these two are no different.
    Mid season if the Pats are undefeated, they’ll both be on their knees worshipping (or something else) in front of Belichick/Brady.

  6. FinFan68 says: Aug 31, 2010 10:24 AM

    Dolphins will win AFC East. Jets have too many issues and will finish 3rd (4th if the Bills figure out how to win a few with what they have)

    Well, I don’t envision a Return to Excellence for the Monday Night Football Crew either…
    This just in – Chicago confirms Jay Cutler IS color blind and cites this as the reason for his plentiful picks. Surprisingly, Jay defends his performance by stating: ‘It’s still not my fault’.

  8. jj jones says: Aug 31, 2010 10:34 AM

    @Filthy Fernandez
    There is no chance they are undefeated at midseason. They have three playoff teams at home (Cincinnati, Baltimore, Minnesota) and play on the road against the Jets, Dolphins and Chargers. And their next two games are at Pittsburgh and home against Indy. Maybe Jaws and Gruden actually looked at the Pats schedule when they made their predictions.

    Funny how Montana showing up at 49ers facility and not interacting with any mgmt or current team members isn’t that big a deal, yet I guarantee if Favre showed up in ten years at Lambeau and didn’t talk to the current Packers he’d be crucified for being bitter, angry, and a diva.
    Guess what fans, Favre and Montana were in the same boat. Their teams didn’t want them, and instead wanted the young guy. Forget about the details, that’s what happened, and it hurts. As we see with Joe, it still hurts. So when Brett wanted to join the Vikings and stick it to Ted, just remember how Joe stuck it to the 49ers in ’94 as a Chief.

    MNF crew is like a New England weather man in Jan only with out the live doppler.

    —————-
    Did Joe retire, then unretire, then retire, then unretire, then go on Greta Van Susteren’s show and throw the team under the bus, then refuse to compete for the job, then get traded, then give secrets to the 49ers competitors, play one season with another team, retire again, ask to be released, then sign with the 49ers’ biggest rival and promptly claim it’s the most talented team he’s been on?
    Wow, sounds like it’s totally the same.

    Seahawks coach Pete Carroll admits it would take “a pretty special recovery” for first-round pick Russell Okung (ankle) to be ready for Week 1.
    But then Pete re-iterated that “everyone is special.”
