  1. 8-8 for the Cardinals? That’s silly talk. This new Card’s teams reminds me a lot of the old Cowboy championship teams. If Beanie stays healthy.

  2. Buttercheck,
    Are you seriously making a comparison that the Cardinals look like those Cowboy teams? That implies you are saying that Kolb looks like Aikman and Wells looks like Smith. Surely this post is made in jest?

  3. Say what you want about David Garrard on the field, but you would be hard pressed to find a classier guy off of it.

  4. Read the article on PFF in the Pats link. The “author”, and I use the term loosely, has Tom Brady ranked as the 33rd best player in the NFL last year. And yet he has them #2 rated team. Whether or not you’re a Pats fan or not, I think Mr Bundchen is a little better than that. I wonder where he has Peyton? Probally 32nd.

  5. “Ravens QB Joe Flacco has historically struggled against Pittsburgh.”

    Struggled? He’s never beaten Roethlisberger, plus he’s had to go to OT to beat a third-string QB.

    History tends to repeat itself.
