Default What was your biggest misprediction this season?

I must admit I thought Marc Sanchez would be the big weakness for the Jets this year but what surprises me most is:

Kyle Orton leading the leage in passing. His name sounds like a nerd who picks corn. I never thought he was very good in Chicago and when he was traded and made a starter in Denver, I was baffled. i remember a preseason game last year he threw 4 picks.

No I would have never guessed Orton would be ahead of Manning, Brady, Brees Rivers and Rogers.

What's your biggest misprediction thus far?

Steelers to go 1-3 in the first 4 games - I predicted the only game of the 4 which would be a win would be at Tampa

I also thought the Jets would flop

brett favre.

i thought the vikings would pick up right where they left off.

i also thought jay cutler would look 10X better than last year.

bears fans are kicking themselves watching the success of kyle orton. he kinda reminds me of someone like rich gannon, or chris chandler who needs 5-6 years in the league and an honest shot to call a team their own, before they begin to showcase their talents.

This would be mine also.

I'm surprised that they have yet to win a game.

But they are playing in primetime this week against the Eagles and that will be interesting.

9ers need a win and Kolb is on the hot seat. It might be one of those games of where it's so ugly it's actually good.

I know. I thought they would be better too. Last year they were overrated. Their offense was like 22nd. I am surprised at the lack of production from TO. He had a good week last week though. So much for Batman and Robin.

Yeah...Kind feel bad for them. That was an awesome Monday night game against the saits. They should have won. Then last week Clemmes looses the ball with less than 2 min to go after the pick. They should be at least 2 and 2. Poor Singletary. It's a bad division. I'm rooting for the Rams now. They lost a close one. They could be 3-1 now. They have a chance to go to 3-2 by beating Detroit.

Yeah...Orton is looking better than Cutler...lol so funny...but I know it is the O-line, and system.

Bret Farve. Now...the pressure is on. Before we were saying no Rice but now he will have Moss. He is not accurate any more. He just tosses it up there so he needs a guy like Moss or Rice who can go up and WIN the ball. lol

Dallas is 1-3 and Chargers lost to the Raiders.

Dallas especially perplexes me, probably more so because of the media than the actual team.

Everytime I watch them I just don't get why so many seem to constantly believe that they are the cream of the crop.

Saints are struggling too. They haven't yet found the offensive dominance that was there last year and got their asses into the Super Bowl.
