@Dedlift they are above 20 now.... Honestly would put them higher, if Mr Floyd pans out like Aldon smith before the trouble, it will be easy to see them as a top 10 team this year, given they have a plethora of stand up ends who can play. They put a lot into depth which is always important with injuries in the pros, and the bears could be on of the deepest teams this year, not the best but deepest and sometimes those deep teams make deep playoff runs.
The Colts are not a top 5 team. They are like the Saints where yes that offense can be potent, but with the defense being super porous (90 points in 2 games) and not defensive talent being added the typical 30 points per game won't be enough. With the Texans and Jags adding all that talent they will be lucky to win that division as well.

By the way, the fourth-annual Walter/Joker Annual Challenge is on, as I'll be competing with the Joker's College Picks. We each pick five games and see who does the best each week.
LSU at Mississippi State Line: LSU by 3.5. Thursday, 8:00 p.m.
As a disclaimer, don't go nuts with my college football picks. I'm much better at picking NFL games; I'm just doing these upon request. Follow @walterfootball for updates.
This is a WalterFootball.com special. I love this situation. You have a home underdog under the weeknight lights where the public is pounding the visitor despite the fact that the spread is moving toward the host's direction. This is a huge game for Mississippi State. I think they win.
College Football Pick: Mississippi State +3.5 (4 Units) -- Incorrect; -$440
Auburn at Clemson Line: Clemson by 3.5. Saturday, 12:00 p.m.
I really have to wonder why Clemson is favored in this game. Auburn had a stinker in the opener, so that makes me think that's playing into this line. I don't think that should matter at all; War Eagle had a nice rebound performance last week against Mississippi State. They're the better of the two Tiger teams.
College Football Pick: Auburn +3.5 (3 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$330
Duke at Boston College Line: Boston College by 7. Saturday, 12:30 p.m.
I can't believe I'm picking Duke, but Boston College is complete garbage. At least the Blue Devils are a fuctional team. The Eagles are even worse.
College Football Pick: Duke +7 (2 Units) -- Correct; +$200
Syracuse at USC Line: USC by 16.5. Saturday, 8:00 p.m.
Hey, at least this time USC can't push the spread 30 minutes after blocking a game-winning field goal and return it for a non-touchdown. I'm going against the Trojans again. They're really overrated.
College Football Pick: Syracuse +16.5 (1 Unit) -- Incorrect; -$110
Stanford at Arizona Line: Stanford by 10. Saturday, 10:45 p.m.
Nick Foles looks lost without his star receiver, Juron Criner. It doesn't look like Criner will play in this game, and even if he does, he won't be 100 percent. This Stanford team is on a mission, and the Wildcats don't have what it takes to stop them.
College Football Pick: Stanford -10 (3 Units) -- Correct; +$300
