    1. New York Giants (12-7) - Previously: #1 - Forum member Migelini, the dumbest person alive, was a bit of a disappointment today. All he had to say was this:

      i theink 49s gong to supergame. what all you theinks.

      Speaking of those challenged by the English language, I thought this was absolutely hilarious - check out Ed Hochuli's 57-second explanation of the new NFL overtime rules in verse.

    2. New England Patriots (15-3) - Previously: #2 - Three random things:

      1. Who the hell did Shannon Sharpe pick in the Patriots-Ravens game? I was watching CBS prior to kickoff, and each analyst offered their selection, as usual. When it was Sharpe's turn, he said:

      uewghw bov 8ew akbfuobknboriskl sdkjbei ho ebei Jacksonville regherg o lnvo dsu ou HVuh iurbhn BREOOW Jaguars wroighrwiog rwoier wg elr ebhtbi nel.

      Am I nuts, or did he pick the Jaguars to win that game?

      2. Speaking of CBS' pre-game show, I couldn't believe they had James Brown talk to the e-Trade baby. What sellouts. It's amazing what these networks will do for money so their CEOs can buy that eighth mansion or 15th yacht that they need so desperately.

      I have an account with e-Trade, and I'm really considering transferring my funds to another online broker because of that bit. That was disgusting.

      3. On a lighter note, I got this text from Awesome Kelly in Arizona on Thursday night:

      I am confident the Ravens will win Sunday. They saved themselves for that game. I even bet a Pats fan a night of drinking and didn't take the points because points are for sissies. Quote me on that.

      Why do I get the feeling that Awesome Kelly in Arizona will be vandalizing Billy Cundiff's house sometime in the near future?

    3. San Francisco 49ers (14-4) - Previously: #5 - Poor Kyle Williams. I hope Niner fans aren't too harsh on him because he was just filling in for someone. It'd be like blaming a substitute teacher for the class failing a state-wide exam. That would be silly - even if the substitute teacher spilled coffee on the Scantrons, or something.

      Anyway, let's go to Notes from GameCenter - a list of a few stupid comments I read on's GameCenter and my thoughts on them:

      1. "bardy is my cusin.... no joke.... he teachd me hwo ta trow da ball.....LOLZ JUS KIDDDDDDDDINNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!! LOLZ!"

      Wow, and here I thought this guy was serious about having a cousin named Bardy.

      2. "spekin of fake fans we all know hawkballz is really a 49er fan. duanebrew 2 b exact. oh an who uses the word puddlez? is that supposed to b sly? u jus sound like a ho mer amigo. thats all"

      This is true. Anyone who has used the word "puddlez" throughout the course of history has been sly. Don't believe me? Richard Nixon used the word "puddlez" five times during Watergate. Fact.

      3. "patriot fans are all white new englanders. their inherrited $ fuels their greed which makes them do evil things like racism. (trust me i lived in new hampshire for 2 years) which actually makes THEM and their fans DUMB AS ROCKS. I hope to see the Giants repeat against brady-bunch. btw i also lived in pittsburgh pa and it is WAY better then new england (people in new hampshire used to ask me what black people are like and stuff they ARE racist.)"

      I disagree with only one point. Racism is not evil. Racism makes rich people feel better about themselves, so therefore racism is a good thing.

    4. Baltimore Ravens (13-5) - Previously: #6 - When Billy Cunwhiffed from 32 yards, I immediately went to his Wikipedia page. I was expecting some epic changes to his page, given that people wrote the following on Nate Kaeding's wiki a couple of years ago:

      Nate Kaeding has been labled the biggest Pedophile, choke artist, catamite, p***s licking p***y in the history of football.


      Kaeding has also been known to wear womens lingerie before important games to help him focus on missing critical chip shots. Nate Kaeding is also Norv Turner's lifemate.

      There wasn't anything that legendary, but the following four changes were made:

      4. Billy losses afc championship for ravens, wide left. This proves he freaking sucks. Pats to the Superbowl!

      3. On January 22, 2012, Cundiff missed a relatively easy 35-yard field goal against the New England Patriots, causing his team to lose the game and an opportunity at the Superb Owl.

      2. Ray Finkle (born March 30, 1980 in Valley Center, California) is an American football placekicker for the Baltimore Ravens of the National Football League.

      1. On January 22, 2012, Cundiff missed a 35-yard field goal against the New England Patriots, which sealed a Super Bowl XLVI berth for the Patriots.What an a**hole

    Although i dont think it will happend i hope my jets end up 32nd so we can get 1st pick, but knowing my team we'll end up staying in playoff race till about week 13 then get knocked out but still try to win so we can end up with a crappy draft pick to go along with a crappy team like we have for the past 3 seasons, other than that i dont agree with 49ers at 1 maybe 4 or 5, i dont like kaepernick

    I have to disagree with you walt. The 49ers lost defensive players, has seen its best defensive players aside from Bowman grow another year into their twilight years and yet has added no1 to the mix. Chris Cook does not count and they have a huge need at corner. The fact that they are good, not great, at safety does not help the fact. You just love the NFC West teams hardcore and it doesn't matter what any other team does, in your mind those are the best. I don't see how anyone can deny that the broncos and the patriots are the best teams in the NFL right now. And I would also put the packers ahead of the 49ers and seahawks. They did pretty well last year considering they didn't have their most effective weapon in Rodgers for most of the year. With more time under Lacy's belt and a fully healthy receiving corpse, they are poised to dominate. The Packers also retained their essential defensive players on reasonable contracts and will focus on that in the draft. It is only your absurd love for the NFC West and their mobile QBs that makes you love them more. I will agree that they are both top 6 teams at overall talent, but neither of them are the top teams. Also the Saints could challenge these teams now that they have a very strong secondary to go with their improved D line and always epic offense.

    49ers at #1 is a joke. I'm not even a Seahawks fan and I think they should be at #1. They won the fricking Super Bowl, dude! "Almost winning" is like finishing 4th in the Olympics.

    Walt we get it you're male Sarah Mclachlan. That being said, I agree Vick is a waste of flesh and a terrible quarterback, but Rex Ryan is a very, very good coach. He took a team of sh*t and got them to eight wins. While Vick sucks, he's better than Geno Smith. While they did nothing to get better they also did nothing to get worse. Likely go 7-9 or 8-8 again.

    And I'm a Dolphins fan

    Why do you have the chargers listed as the #12 team if you clearly write you don't think they will make the playoffs, also the Vick/Jets talk is ridiculous, he didn't sandbag the eagles playoff team last year and he was benched mid season.

    Panthers will be fine next year. remember where we were at 2 years ago and we were in worse cap shape, we'll be better than everyone expects.

    Just saw the rest of it. Lol, this is horrible. Did you even put any thought whatsoever into this? Titans are definitely way too high without a run game and the lost of Verner. McCourty does his part but Verner definitely held his own and was the defense.

    Rams are overrated, especially with Bradford at QB. Please, throw that team in the dumpster. Great defense, I admit. Run game is good, passing needs some work but still too high up there.

    Hit it with the Cardinals, made a great run.

    I guess the Panthers are way down the list because they have no WRs? I'm sure their ranking will change so I'll leave that for now.

    Colts should be higher, in the 8th spot would be perfect. Luck is just magical.

    Eagles and Ravens should be in the top 10. Good coaching, both have playmakers, young teams.

    Falcons are too high? But then again, injuries definitely slowed them down last year.

    Steelers should be higher and the Bengals are some pretenders, particularly the almight "Red Rocket" ahaha, what a joke. Marvin Lewis is a joke too. Been there for WAY too long. Won't be surprised if he's fired after or during the season.

    SLEEPER: Buccaneers/Fins(unbiased opinion lol) for next season.

    Don't agree with the Yets at #32. Jags or Cowboys should definitely be there. Name me a playmaker on the Jaguars. Oh wait, YOU CAN'T.

    In the Yets defense, Rex Ryan is an amazing coach, let's not forget about his 2 appearances in the conference championship WITH SANCHEZ! He is real coach and is very vocal and a motivator, I see a 6 win team at the moment, definitely not last in the league.

    Also, only reason why the Fins sucked last year is because of the O-line and horrible offensive play calling. Could have, well SHOULD HAVE been 10-6, 9-7.
