Bigger Surprising Start To the Season?
 
Just to get away from Redskins' talk for a little bit

I will say the play of K.Orten and how Denver is playing as a whole. That does not look like the guy from Chicago.

The NO Saints, espically the way they disposed the Giants on Sunday.

Kyle Orton was the last starting quarterback taken in our Fantasy Football draft. I ended up taking him, thinking I wasted a pick. Everyone in our league thought he was damaged goods after being in Chicago. It's amazing what a new setting and scheme can change the fortunes of a player. Look at Cedric Benson, he left Chicago a bum and is blossoming in Cincinnati. What does that say about Chicago's offense. Obviously they were not getting the most out of their talent. I think that's happening in Washington. The Skins are going to give up on Jason Campbell and he will be a good player elsewhere.

If you guys noticed, the Broncos signed a lot of reasonable priced FA's, made some nice trades, drafted well and they are producing, which attributes to the teams Success. Moral of the story, they didn't spend almost $200 Million on 3 players.

That's usually how it works most of the time for the Skins. i.e. Akers, Pierce, others I'm sure I'm forgetting...

I think Tennessee's downfall is more surprising. A team that went 13-3 with Kerry Collins at QB is bound to come off of cloud 9...but to the tune of 0-6 is very surprising. Injuries in their secondary have killed them, and Fisher stuck with Collins too long because of his lack of trust in Vince Young (They cut Patrick Ramsey on October 4th to make room for more CBs).

You mean we can pick up Ramsey and start where we left off a few years ago? Glory, glory hallelujah! Why haven't we dumped Woodson and got our real QB back yet?! :smashfrea

Did you hear Bud Adams yesterday? Basically gave a "strong suggestion" that Fisher better start playing Vince Young

^Yeah, I heard that. Adams is sounding Snyderish these days.

I am surprised by the Broncos but am really surprised by the Titans. Fisher may not be a world beater but he has always managed to put competitive teams on the field, regardless of personnel. I thought that the Titans would be much better.

Adams is also pushing 90 I believe, so maybe he's getting a little antsy

Denver hands down for me. That whole city was ready to run McDaniels out of town before even coaching a single game and really who could blame them. I thought they would be lucky to win 6 games all year, now they are one of the powerhouses of the AFC.

I didn't see the Titans starting 0-6 but at the same time it's not as surprising as the Broncos 6-0 start.

I think Denver for the reason Matty says and for the whole off season QB controversy. They looked like a disaster and I didnt see them doing much this year and now it looks like they could clinch the division by Halloween. Amazing.

So much for going away from Redskins talk :doh:

I'd have to go with Tennessee. Granted, I didn't think the Broncos would be very good, but I thought the Titans would be a team competing for a playoff spot again. Now, their season is pretty much over and Fisher may lose his job. Bigger surprise there for sure.
