Ok, Im quoting my own quote (didnt even know you could), anyway, I just saw the ESPN clip of GB and new QB Rogers, and I have to reverse my opinion, I think you guys are in big trouble. I hope its just because its pre season. Yikes GB looks Horrible.

BF looks nervous but fantastic, and I think his team is better because of the electricity he brings. Even the other team respects him, did you see the way they were quick to help him up after the sack? Im sure he has done his share of damage to the Redskins over the years.

Who among us at 40 plus dont want to see brett Favre kick ass? Well, maybe not the coach and manager of GB.

My new prediction: Jets 10-6 wild card

GB 8-8 no play offs for 3 or more years

Pats 13-3 and win the superbowl

I am close to on-pace for #1 to be true....he's been sinking and is #13 right now. #2 and #3 are linked and I bombed them so I lose.

I failed to take into account strength of schedule and the nice improvements for the Jets in several areas. I would give Favre some credit for inspiring the team but his passing is a little erratic.

I can't believe Brett Favre made the Pro Bowl...I can think of 3 or 4 more deserving QBs this year that didn't make it.

The Pro Bowl is a joke and it isn't even voted on by fans!

Bob is right-it is a popularity contest. To be sure, the players like to be acknowledged by their peers, that's just natural. Yet a lot of them will duck the pro bowl in a second. It happens all the time. Just ask Dan Marino.

That was a joke that the Jets sent so many to the Pro Bowl, including Favre.

At least the Giants got a little bit of respect and representation this year, unlike last year when the SB champs only sent 1.
