This is the year baby. This is the year.
On another note, how about that Week 1 schedule? The odds are most certainly stacked against a lot of the home teams. Based off of current poll results, I'm only going against the grind on a couple of picks:
-St. Louis over Arizona (The Rams come out strong at home in a re-building year. The crowd wills them to a win over a Cards team with no real identity anymore. Not a sign of things to come, fluke win for STL.)
-Minnesota over New Orleans (Vikings open up the game with an arial blitzkrieg, taking the still-questionable New Orleans secondary by surprise. Saints never rebound from early deficit.)
Other than that, I'm kind of pleased with the way most people feel about the current set of matchups. Obviously our Niners have a 99% over Seattle. Also glad that Atlanta has a commanding lead over Pittsburgh. I think they are very likely to go 0-4 without Big Ben, and basically miss the playoffs before September is even out.
