  1. I think you meant to say “from first to worst” on the Seahawks one-liner. I’m not expecting much from them this season, but I don’t think they’ll be in line for the #1 pick in the 2012 draft.

  2. There is no way that Miami pounds Bush in between the tackles on a regular basis.

    He’ll get most of his touches on sweeps (they ran alot in preseason) and flare passes or misdirection.

    He’ll still touch the ball 20 to 25 times but ultimately Thomas will take the real pounding.

  3. Reggie Bush and Felix Jones are getting their chance this season.

    I like the Bengals young talent and how they’re rebuilding, but only have them winning 2 games this year, so last in the rankings is about right.

    I’ve got the Steelers going 14-2, Packers, Eagles, Saints, Chargers, Patriots 13-3, Ravens 12-4
    To round out the top 12 (playoff teams), I got the the Texans 11-5, Bears, Falcons, Jets 10-6, and the Cardinals 9-7 (hard to predict NFC West, I do see the Rams being neck and neck with them)
