Re: sleeper '05

I'm selling on the Lions until Harrington proves he can step up. Jeff Garcia might be their best bet right now.

The Jags and Texans have been the trendy sleeper picks the last few years, perhaps it's time for one or both of them to finally break through?

Re: sleeper '05

I think the Cardinals will win more games than the Vikings. I think the Vikings will flop this year.

Re: sleeper '05

I'll take the Saints, mainly because my meds and peyote combine to wreak havoc on my sanity.

Re: sleeper '05

Here's a team the REDSKINS. Everybody thinks we've had a bad offseason, even though it hasn't really been that bad. We got the best defense in the league and we get to add Lavar Arrington to it. Anybody who thinks Lavar will not help our d is simply a crack head. Then on offense we can't possibly not be better. We'll have a strong running game, and improved play from the quaterback position. In addition the scheme will be somewhat more effective(just how much remains to be seen). I think we can honestly surprise a lot of people and win 10 games.

Re: sleeper '05

I think when everybody picks you as a sleeper, you're out of the running - so sorry, Bengals.

I think the Titans will be better than advertised, primarily because their division is thin. The Texans have been spinning their wheels since their inception, and I will go to my grave thinking Jack Del Rio is a rotten coach in Jax. That leaves the Colts - so they aren't as good as the Colts. Most teams aren't.

Re: sleeper '05

If the Redskins prove to be the sleeper team and win 10 games, I'll sh-t my pants. That said, I can't see them winning more than 9 games and think they'll probably get 7 or 8.

Re: 2005 NFL Sleeper Team

My sleeper pick is the Bills. I know they came on strong and were still 9-7 last year, so its not that far of a stretch, but early reports say that JP Losman is coming on very strong at camps, and should be good. I think they have one more year left with their defense, as its aging, but they should get a good year out of them. So I'll take Buffalo.

Re: 2005 NFL Sleeper Team

well on nfl total access today they said joe gibbs has been so impressed with the offense he only makes them work out once a day, instead of twice.

Re: 2005 NFL Sleeper Team

I think the lions will finally break through this year as will the saints. the lions have a pretty stacked offense if Harrington steps up, but if not garcia has shown what he can do with good offensive weapons around him in the west coast offense of Mooch. and if the saints stick to the plan of running Deuce more and Brooks improves his consistency, they could be in the running for a wild card spot. plus I honestly wouldn't be suprised if Arizona shocks some people especially in their weak division.

I dont know if I like that. I think they should be getting in all the work that they can until they start proving how good they are on the feild. However, it is encouraging to hear that they have been impressing.

Re: 2005 NFL Sleeper Team

lions w/ garcia... they got a good qb and the firepower to go with it...
selling the cards though, i still dont think they have a qb good enough to use what they've got on offense.

Will you be providing photographical proof or will we just have to take your word for it?

As for a sleeper how about the Texans? They aren't good enough to topple the Colts, but of their defense can provide anything, they have the offense to win some games.. I can see them as a 9 win team competing for that last wild card spot in the AFC..

Re: 2005 NFL Sleeper Team

I'd have to say the Vikings......they look good on paper........but then again haven't the Redskins for the past few years then fizzled, so maybe I'm totally wrong on this

Bills look good except they have a young unproven QB..........

Texans still need a few players especially their OL, but they will bring an upset or two to their opponents...........
