Re: NFL Fact or Fiction - Week 1

Week 1 Fact or Faction

1. Kevin Jones will outperform Thomas Jones in the Bears-Lions game.
-Fiction. The much improved Bears O-line with John Tait will pave the way for Thomas.

2. Indy will end New England's 15 Game Regular Season & Playoffs winning streak.
-Fiction. With the Colts losing 2 defensive starters from last year, Corey Dillon will run wild.

3. Carolina's powerful D-Line will hold Ahman Green under 50 yards on MNF.
-Fiction. The Packers O-line is way too good and Ahman will break one 20 yard run like always.

4. Kurt Warner will immediately lose his starting job this week. (At Philly)
-Fact. Its been 3 years since Kurt won a game, and Eli is too goos not to start.

5. The Titans will miss George, Mccareins, & Kearse more than Miami will miss Williams, Boston, & Ogunleye.
-Fiction. Tennessee is a system team, plug anyone in and they'll get numbers. Miami lost a franchise runner, an up and coming DE, and a decent WR.

6. Deion Sanders' return to the NFL will ruin Jeff Garcia's debut with the Browns.
-Fiction. Ray Lewis will ruin Jeff's debut.

7. Mark Brunell Will Be Sacked At Least Three Times by the Bucs
-Fact. Jon Jansen is lost for the season, and their line was never that good.

8. Pennington to Moss will be called more than Palmer to Johnson.
-Fact. Palmer has yet to prove anything, while Pennington has the experiance.

9. The Cards WR's will show more than the Rams WR's.
-Fiction. With Boldin injured, the Rams will run wild on arguably the worst secondary in the NFL.

10. Vincent will do more for the Bills than Winfield did.

11. Someone other than LT will have a good game for San Diego vs. Houston.
-Fact. Donnie Edwards is a top LB.

12. Sapp and Washington for the Raiders will shut down Pitt's aquisition of Duce Staley.
-Fact. Washington is the best run stuffer in the league.

13. Champ Bailey & John Lynch will help the Broncos to a win in their first game with Denver vs. KC
-Fiction. Opposite Baily is Lenny Walls, probably the worst starting CB in the league. Priest will carry the Cheifs to a win.

14. San Fran will be shut out for the first time in 418 games vs. Atlanta
-Fiction. Barlow is a good RB, and their current WR's have a knack for big plays. Plus Atlanta had the worst D in the NFL last year.

15. Will Smith is the perfect help to push the Saints into the playoffs starting against the Playoff bound Seahawks.
-Fact. The Saints D-line is young and has alot to prove. Haslett needs to be in the playoffs to keep his job.

3. Carolina's powerful D-Line will hold Ahman Green under 50 yards on MNF. FICTION. green is a very good back and with favre at qb he's good for 50 against anyone.

4. Kurt Warner will immediately lose his starting job this week. (At Philly) FICTION. why start him for just one week?

5. The Titans will miss George, Mccareins, & Kearse more than Miami will miss Williams, Boston, & Ogunleye. FICTION. miami will struggle unless minor and chambers are huge(chambers will be).

7. Mark Brunell Will Be Sacked At Least Three Times by the Bucs. FICTION. the bucs defense has gone downhill every since dungy left. gruden is ruining this team(he just got there at the right time to use his offense with dungy's defense to win a title before the decline).

1. Kevin Jones will outperform Thomas Jones in the Bears-Lions game. FICTION - The bears have nobody to throw to, and quite frankly, they have nobody to throw the ball with any consistency either. So due to process of elimination, this team has to run the ball where in comparision to the Lions, they do have an air attack and should use it often.

2. Indy will end New England's 15 Game Regular Season & Playoffs winning streak. FACT - New England lost their first game last year to the Bills, so why not again against the Colts.

3. Carolina's powerful D-Line will hold Ahman Green under 50 yards on MNF. FICTION - I don't care how good the Panthers D is, Ahman Green will get 50 on a bad day.

4. Kurt Warner will immediately lose his starting job this week. (At Philly). FICTION - Don't get me wrong, he will lose it, but that will come a few weeks down the road.

5. The Titans will miss George, Mccareins, & Kearse more than Miami will miss Williams, Boston, & Ogunleye. FICTION - In my mind Miami is a MESS, my forcast for them is 8-8 AT BEST, while the Titans still have a very solid team as they didn't down grade much with Brown, and emerging stars like Calico and Bennett.

6. Deion Sanders' return to the NFL will ruin Jeff Garcia's debut with the Browns. FICTION - Deion's my main man, but come on, he may barely touch the field.

7. Mark Brunell Will Be Sacked At Least Three Times by the Bucs. FACT - Simeon Rice will get to Brunell 3 times himself.

8. Pennington to Moss will be called more than Palmer to Johnson. FACT - But not by much, I believe Johnson is so good he will make plays off poorly thrown balls by himself.

9. The Cards WR's will show more than the Rams WR's. FICTION - It still doesn't get any better than Holt on one side, and Bruce on the other side. And the Cards WR's are a mess(injuries) anyways.

10. Vincent will do more for the Bills than Winfield did. FICTION - Vincent is an aging corner that doesn't possess the skill he once had, but im not too sold on Winfield either.

11. Someone other than LT will have a good game for San Diego vs. Houston. FACT - The water boy might have a good game getting the needed fluids into LT, but that's about it.

12. Sapp and Washington for the Raiders will shut down Pitt's aquisition of Duce Staley. FACT - Sapp and Washington will clog up the middle on almost anyone, hopefully they realize this and bounce some runs to the outside.

13. Champ Bailey & John Lynch will help the Broncos to a win in their first game with Denver vs. KC. FACT - I don't think the KC of this year will be like the KC of last year, and Denver has a solid defense and a decent team.

14. San Fran will be shut out for the first time in 418 games vs. Atlanta. FICTION - I don't see it coming in the first game, but IT'S COMING.

15. Will Smith is the perfect help to push the Saints into the playoffs starting against the Playoff bound Seahawks. FICTION. I don't have the Saints pegged for a playoff spot.

16. The Duo of Testeverde and Johnson will be better in Dallas than they were in New York, rolling over Minnesota in Week 1. DAMN STRAIGHT
