    Tom Brady, given decent receivers to throw to, is as good a QB as there is in the NFL. Declaring him no longer an elite QB has to rank with the all-time knowledgeless statements. And there is no reason to think his skills will diminish any time this season.

    Maybe you should drink less before you write.

    Sam, not sure my last message went through.... so I saw your NFL roster ranking article and how you had R. Wilson ranked ahead of A. Luck.... do you really thing if Indy contacted Seattle and said we will give you Luck for Wilson they wouldn't say snap.... thank you, we will take him..... change the players and where they went.... no way Indy makes playoffs last two years.... please...

    I think it depends almost entirely on Ponder. If he gets it in year two then I think they can legitimately contend for a Wild Card. In that division and in the NFC that may be a 9-7 kind of season to get in with teams taking wins off each other, so if they finish at 8-8 they may have been in the race until the final game and given a good account of themselves. I think that's probably the high watermark season for them barring some kind of real stars-aligning sort of deal.

    It's certainly possible, but it makes a better article to say it'll happen than 'if all goes right it just might be possible' ;)

    Thanks for posting

    Hey man... I caught your article on how the Vikes are gonna shock the world. Although it was well written, I have to say that it's a bit far-fetched to think that they'll land a wild-card berth.

    5-11/6-10 is about the best to expect from the Vikes this year... they do have talent, but that talent just doesn't compare to the other teams in the divison... not right now anyway. They're maybe a season away from making any real noise.
