I voted ( now) for the Vikings.

If I had voted last Saturday, it would have been the Cowboys.

However, the Cowboys look like they might salvage something this season.
The Vikings don't.

The Lions aren't really bad at all, they just can't finish a game. The defense always seems to give away the game and the offense is definatly above average now.
The Lions are agonizingly frustrating to watch. You can see they have some talent on BOTH sides of the ball. Ndamukong Suh is stud in his rookie season he's already terrorizing quarterbacks. Calvin Johnson is the most physically talented wide receiver in the NFL in terms of size, speed and strength. Jahvid Best is a big play guy playing with turf toes on BOTH feet. Matt Stafford just can't stay healthy and really that is the biggest problem right now. When he plays they have a legitimate chance to win against most teams in the league.

I think we are about to find out a major part of the Cowboys problems is poor coaching. Wade Phillips did not hold players accountable and simply wasn't tough enough on players. It's obvious based on the last 4 games he coached that he totally lost the team and nobody respected him anymore. In terms of effort that's got to be the worst 4 game stretch that I've ever seen an NFL team play.

The Cowboys have nothing left to salvage at this stage of the season but some self respect.

I was wondering myself why there was no Redskins option.

I wouldn't say "defending champs" or "defending super bowl champs" when it comes to football in general or the NFL. That's for boxing when a boxer has a champioship and defends that title.

While in Football you don't "defend" a title, you have to earn another one.

Also, the Saints is not bad this season especially since the won against the Steelers. It's not the Saints fault that the teams are now taking them seriously after the Saints won the Super Bowl last season...happens with other teams after they won or have a good-great season the year before.

The Saints unlike the Cowboys had injuries to their players this season which is one of the reason why the Saints are having some trouble.

While the Cowboys on the other hand have their starters and still not tdoing anything, especially since the Cowboys starters are highly paid.

Seriously? Brandon Marshall has 55 catches for 652 yards and a single touchdown this year plus he's been caught more than once on video giving less than full effort. Meanwhile the guy we replaced him with (Brandon Lloyd) has 48 catches for 968 yards (93% of them resulting in first downs) and 6 touchdowns. Plus Marshall's departure has allowed us to build a more balanced passing attack with Jabar Gaffney (48/573/2) and Eddie Royal (43/466/2) having very solid seasons. We're not missing him at all and got two 2nd round picks for the privilege of upgrading the receiving corps.

Hillis has no one to blame but himself for not being here. Two different coaching staffs benched him in Denver and a third in Cleveland started him out as a backup before injuries started piling up. It's nice that he's finally make use of his physical talent though, something which has never been in question.

That's right--I am!!! Let's see--Brady owned us last week for sure BUT the Steelers are 6-3, tied for first with Baltimore! However, the Cowboys are 2-7 for the season--in LAST place. That new stadium Jerry Jones built didn't help y'all, did it?!?! They will definitely not be playing there on Feb 6, 2011.

I stand by my statement that that they are the biggest disaster of this season! Even your owner thinks so--firing your coach mid-season!?!?!
