Isn't Grim a Jets fan?

Come to think of it, doesn't Grim usually post a gushing appraisal of Chad Pennington about this time of year? I've been really looking forward to his latest one... :)

Can't wait until Thursday. Going to stay up and watch the Skins live :)

Anyone know what he thinks of Brett Favre?? :D Or as I like to call him, Matt Cassels idol.

In the 2 Pats games, even with the awful secondary, I am going for 8 Interceptions.

Ah, Marshall Faulk showing his love for the Patriots again on Total Access:

"The Jets will win the AFC East".

Yes Marshall, and Bill wont show that tape to the players before the match to fire them up you jackass

Don't forget Blue Boy from the Seahawks register. :p

pauldrulez 02-09-2008 02:35 PM

So out of the 32, only about 10 are represented.

Strathclyde Eagle 02-09-2008 02:48 PM

Trying to remember here. I think Chief Brody is a 49ers fan. Quite a few Eagles fans appeared when they reached the Super Bowl a few years ago as well.

pauldrulez 02-09-2008 03:22 PM

Pretty sure there are no Bengals, Browns, Texans, Steelers, Saints, Jags, Colts, Packers fans.

I think I we should all choose a 2nd team so that they arent left out.

saxoneagle 02-09-2008 03:26 PM

My second team is the Titans cos the missus says I have to like Vince Young and that Reggie Bush sucks c**k.

She's a UT alum, of course.

It isn't really the Titans. I don't think I really have a second team although I always lookout more for the teams I've actually seen live -- except the Colts.

pauldrulez 02-09-2008 03:28 PM

I like the Steelers because of Mendenhall and Sweed...

But I'm swinging between the Jags and the Bengals.

nookiebear 02-09-2008 03:33 PM

Don't really believe in second teams in any sport although I don't mind Seattle - I liked them a lot when I first got into NFL in the 80s when Brian Bosworth was playing for them. I went off them a bit after he left.

Redskins and Palace for me and no-one else :)

Chester 02-09-2008 03:37 PM

I have a soft spot for theBengals. Like them when i was younger as they had stripey helmets.

Now they go into the season with decent expectations and fail to deliver every time so suit me down to the ground so ill tak them

Why not hedge your bets and just support all 32, Paul? :D

I think I will support all of the NFC and the Patriots.

That way we are guaranteed a winner.

Sad news here, I really hope he pulls through, and so close to the anniversary of Seans' death.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Jaguars offensive tackle Richard Collier was shot and critically wounded outside an apartment building early Tuesday as he and a former Jacksonville teammate waited for two women they had met at a nightclub, authorities said.

Collier, 26, and former Jaguars defensive end Kenneth Pettway were waiting in a Cadillac Escalade when a gunman fired into the vehicle, said Jacksonville Sheriff's Office spokesman Ken Jefferson. Collier was shot several times, but it wasn't clear where he was hit.

Collier was in critical condition at Shands Jacksonville Medical Center, hospital spokesman Chris Turner said. The motive behind the attack was unknown, and the sheriff's office was investigating. Pettway, who was released in final cuts Saturday, was not injured.

The shooting happened around 2:45 a.m. in a middle- to upper middle-class neighborhood just west of downtown Jacksonville and blocks from the St. Johns River. The players had gone to the apartment complex so the women could drop off their car, authorities said.

The women, who appeared to be in their 20s, were wearing nightclub dresses when they were escorted by police back to the complex midmorning Tuesday, but they declined comment. Jaguars spokesman Dan Edwards declined comment at the hospital. The team planned to release a statement later in the day.

Collier is the third NFL player to be shot in the past 18 months. Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor was fatally shot during what police said was a botched burglary attempt at his Miami-area home in November. Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was killed when his rented limousine was sprayed with bullets minutes after leaving a New Year's party at a downtown Denver club in 2007.

Entering his third year after making the team as an undrafted rookie free agent, Collier competed for the starting job at left tackle but was beaten out by Khalif Barnes in the preseason.

Still, the Jaguars believe Collier could be a future starter. They signed him to a contract extension earlier this year -- despite his arrest last season.

The 6-foot-7, 345-pound linemen was arrested Nov. 3 after officers found him asleep behind the wheel at a McDonald's drive-thru window. Collier failed field sobriety tests and had a blood-alcohol level of .096, according to police. In Florida, it is illegal to drive with a blood-alcohol level of .08 or higher.

Collier was suspended two games and fined by coach Jack Del Rio.

Collier's attorney disputed the police report and recommended that his client go to trial, but Collier didn't want the team to have to deal with the negative attention it would have generated. So he pleaded no contest and accepted six months of probation.

He publicly vowed to stay out of trouble, not wanting to blow his chance of becoming an every-down starter in the NFL -- something he felt like he nearly did already.

Coming out of high school in Shreveport, La., Collier didn't have the grades or test scores to attend most colleges, so he stayed home with his mother and got a job in the produce department at Wal-Mart. Instead of blocking defenders and creating running and passing lanes, he was arranging heads of lettuce, stacking ears of corn and washing fruit.

He worked there for two years before deciding to give football another chance. He enrolled at Tyler Junior College in Texas, about 90 miles west of Shreveport, and showed up weighing 390 pounds and having not lifted a weight since high school.

Collier quickly got his grades -- and body -- in shape and worked his way into the starting lineup. He transferred to Valdosta State in 2004 and helped the Blazers win the Division II national championship that season. He earned All-America honors as a senior in 2005.

But he failed to impress many NFL scouts.

The Jaguars were the only team to bring Collier in for a workout before the draft, so signing with Jacksonville as an undrafted rookie was an easy decision. His only other choice, he thought, was to go back to the produce section.

"It took me to lose everything to recognize how much I had," Collier said during his rookie season. "It was a blessing, really. I found out how it would be if I didn't work hard and apply myself."

OK, first bet of the season done:

Divisional winners:
New England Patriots @ 1/9
Pittsburgh Steelers @ 6/5
Indianapolis Colts @ 8/13
San Diego Chargers @ 1/4
Dallas Cowboys @ 10/11
Minnesota Vikings @ 11/8
New Orleans Saints @ 5/4
Seattle Seahawks @ 8/11

Perm 6s (0.25), 7s (1) and accumulator (5). Total stake 20.
If all 8 win, I'll win just over a grand.
