    This is the first Pats season in about 10 years that I really have no idea what to expect. I love the offense but because the defense is so young and such a huge question mark I can't think of them as an elite team anymore. I'm leaning towards 9-7.....maybe 10-6 at best.

    I'm the same way about the Vikings. I can't expect Favre to have the season he had last year and go 12-4 but I think they're as talented as any other team in the NFL right now, and that includes the Colts, Saints, Packers, etc.

    I don't get the love for the Packers. Sure, their offense looks as good as anybody's right now, but what did they do to improve the defense that the Vikings and Cardinals completely shredded last year? Nothing! I guess they're going by the Dennis Green theory that they'll just outscore their opponents. We saw how many Super Bowls that got Denny now, didn't we?

    We'll find out a lot about the Vikings Thurs. night but even then, we're without Sidney Rice, Chris Cook (who has looked outstanding in preseason) and most probably Cedric Griffin so even if they lose, it's not that big a deal. It's the season opener. I'd much rather lose this game than make it to the playoffs and lay a brick.

    C'mon man, I'm trying to downplay this game in my mind! You all know I'll be going nuts about this time two days from now. Even toying with taking some vacation for Friday to celebrate a Viking victory! Or lick my wounds, whichever will be the case.

    I'm sending a message to Winter Park right now: "Hold onto the Goddamn football!" Vikings fans know it, and Saints fans know it. The Vikings outplayed the Saints and gave the game away through turnovers. No way the Saints defense gets that lucky two games in a row against Minnesota.

    Default EX-NFL Player turns down $1 million to re-sign in 2010

    http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcont...n.287cfd2.html

    Sept.4, 2010

    There is a light rain falling as Duke Preston stands near the front door of Turpin Library on the Dallas Theological Seminary campus just outside downtown Dallas.

    Quietly, students walk to and from classes unaware that this giant of a man – 6-5, 320 pounds – played for the Cowboys. A Study of Theology 101 class starts in about an hour.

    "The cool thing is that people don't really care," Preston said.

    Almost exactly a year ago, Preston, a center, sat inside the Cowboys' Valley Ranch facility as players, one by one, were told their dreams of making an NFL roster were through. He was one of the lucky 53 told to keep his playbook, but he never played in a game last year.

    In June, Preston turned 28. He and his wife, Lisa, had a daughter, Maya, three months ago. The Cowboys offered him about $1 million to re-sign in 2010, including a $200,000 signing bonus. The team kept the option of returning open and waited until June to rescind its offer.

    The pull of God was stronger than the pull of football, so Preston, who had off-season ankle surgery, decided to walk away.

    "A lot of people kind of don't get it, and I know it's a tough thing to understand," Preston said. "It doesn't make sense, but in my mind and knowing what I feel and the process of things that happened to lead me to that decision, I couldn't speak to anything but God being a part of it. It's been hard to explain to people, but it's the truth. I feel it, and you have to stay true to that."

    Preston realized he was not alone while listening to Dr. Tony Evans, the senior pastor at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship, speak at weekly Bible study meetings at Valley Ranch. Evans discussed only now beginning to understand the bible after 15 years of college and 30 years of ministry.

    Preston said the discussions regarding religion among the Cowboys last year also pushed him in this direction.

    "There were some bus rides down to Arlington, and the guys are talking God, Christian faith, is there a God?" Preston said. "I couldn't help but see things happening in front of my face. A lot of people have this conception that the NFL is full of guys who have it figured out, but we don't. Four out of five players end in divorce, bankrupt, unemployed or addicted when they're done. ... Even in NFL locker rooms there are guys searching and looking to make sense of it."

    In addition to the nine hours of class, he's working 30 hours a week for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, pulling in $30,000 a year. Film work has been replaced by homework and papers. Instead of getting ready to play Washington, he's learning about the history of Christian education and Bible exposition. Instead of lifting weights, he's preparing talks for local schools.

    I'm hoping the D makes positive strides over the course of the season. 5th in points allowed last season was not too bad for a unit that a lot of people think is an afterthought. It is going to be up to the offence to get things done and avoid the shit problems they had in the 2nd half of games last season especially in the red zone. The addition of the tight ends through the draft should help. I think Brady will have an awesome season and apparently a new contract is close to getting done.
