Two weeks in and there are only seven undefeated teams? That's pretty crazy, don't you think?

Yeah, and a lot of them are teams that you wouldn't expect to be undefeated. There is a TON of parity going on this year so far. Even the Lions (even though they are 0-2...thank you refs) look like they could go out there and kick anyone's ass each week so far.

Speaking of the Lions...how much must it suck to be a Lions fan and know how close you are to 2-0 (or atleast 1-1) and just have it snatched away from you. That's got to be the unluckiest team in history.

Very few teams, usually like half the league is 2-0

No, that would be the Browns. Cleveland makes its luck, and it's all bad.

I obviously posted before the NO game, so there are actually 8 teams at 2-0, not seven. However, by late Monday night there will be a maximum of six undefeateds, and very likely only four, I think. In week three. That's pretty amazing.:scratchchin:

Personally, I think the teams that are 0-2 right now are a more interesting subject.

Especially Minny and the Cowboys. The Vikes should get a win this weekend against Detroit but the Cowboys got the Texans who have to be hyped and confident.

Starting off 0-3 for either is pretty much playoff suicide for two teams that a lot of people picked to be in the Super Bowl.

Minnesota strikes me as a team that was already preparing for the Superbowl. Dallas is just losing early this year, instead of late.

I find it interesting that we are considered a surprise at 2-0, but not Miami. Why is that?

Wow. Barring a tie, after tomorrow's game, there will be only three undefeated teams left in the NFL after three weeks.

I don't know about you folks, but I am floored by that. It's particularly sweet that one of the three is the Stillers.
