What do you want pundits to be wrong about?

We've seen the preseason mags, the blogs and the talking heads all regurgitating the same tired pre-camp story lines over and over again.

McNabb must be done or else the Eagles wouldn't have traded in the division. Portis, Johnson and Parker are all too old to be effective. Haynesworth is going to be a distraction. Thomas and Kelly haven't developed yet and never will. Questions along the offensive line remain despite upgrades at both tackle positions.

So of the common refrains, which one do you want to see dispelled over the next 4 weeks? (mods-poll if you'd like)

Personally, I am tired of the running back stuff. They're all older, yes, but only Portis has a lot of mileage and regardless how you slice it Johnson, Parker & Torrian are HUGE upgrades over Betts, Rock and Ganther.

I want to prove any pundit who says any team other than the Redskins will win the Super Bowl wrong.

So we're talking specific player/position stories here? Not just about the team overall?

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

I was just saying to a guy in the office here every year around this time (pre-internet) I would get so excited for the prediction mags to come out.

I would read them at the grocery store and get so mad at them, people would probaly walk by and think I was crazy.

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

I want them to be wrong about Kolb's success in Philly. They're basing that he will be good on the back of two games where he played really well. In particular, I want it to be shown that all these years, McNabb was the weapon in Philly, not DeSean, not Celek, not even Westbrook and with DMac out, the whole team just crumbles for the next 10 years.

I don't care about the pundits and it doesn't matter whether they are wrong or not. They are worthless for the most part.

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

I want them to prove if an owner stays out the way (I like DS, an owner who's not afraid to spend money) of football operations and hires qualified people you will see competitive football & wins. I guess my questions is really directed at ourselves.

Have to agree with you. SI is really interesting in that they keep both Peter King and Don Banks on staff. The former provides decent insight and covers the league pretty well in my judgment, the latter is just worthless - honestly, I'm astonished that that guy is a paid columnist for SI when he so clearly just reads other articles on FoxSports, ESPN etc. and then just rehashes them with his own snide judgments thrown in.

I'd like to see Malcolm Kelly and DT come in and prove everybody wrong, and break out in the process.
