Dallas...ranked #4 in "Power" Polls...it's laughable.

*Voted for RBs being old...this is going to work out well, ESPECIALLY with Shanny.

Yeah I went with the MK DT one but I hope that they are all wrong.

That doesn't seem to make much sense to me. Why one so clearly over the other?

Re: What do you want pundits to be wrong about?

This is really tough because I want them to be wrong about everything, but I chose McNabb. If that was a mistake I think that sets us back more than anything.

The risk/ reward scenario.......It has to be Haynesworth. If he can suck it up and be what he can be, our defense should be top 5. With the new scheme and our players, I think AH has the chance to make the biggest positive or negative impact on our team this year. Only time will tell. Ive heard people saying that we will do fine without him, and that may be true, but it sure will be hard without him.....

I dunno. Probably because Thomas has shown real flashes of being a playmaker while Kelly is like glass. Maybe I'm just satisfied if only one of them comes through and have unconciously put my chips in Devin's corner.

Re: What do you want pundits to be wrong about?

I voted for Haslett because I'm really hoping the defensive coaching switch brings the new ideas/energy and stuff, but I'm going to comment on the age of the running backs instead.

It's hard to say when old becomes too old. It's not like age thirty is a magical number either. For Willie Parker, I would say 29 is probably too old. For Portis, there was a decline/altering of style at age 26. He probably has a year or two left at the same "heavily dependent on the OL" level, where he can go for 5.0 YPC if holes are being blown open, and 3.2 if he's running into backs of lineman.

Larry Johnson was an older back coming into the NFL, so 30 isn't a very critical age for him. Johnson was a fairly useless player by age 27, so whatever he had in the tank then, he probably still has.

Brian Westbrook has declined more in the last three seasons than any of these guys, but still had his short area running and receiving skills. Breakaway speed is history though.

Re: What do you want pundits to be wrong about?

I went with the draft class of 08 sucking or not sucking. I was leaning towards Donovan. But I decided that i partially agree with the Eagles trading Donovan. They had a plan, and they stuck to it. Donovan is on the decline, and they needed to start looking towards the future. We needed a stud to give us a chance to win immediately, and that's Donovan. I don't fault them for making that trade.
