    In the NFL, Game 3 of pre seson is when the starters and the team MUST shine on the field. The teams have been running their drills, nursing and evaluating any injuries, and sorting out the 2nd string.

    Game 3 is when THE TEAMS ROLL OUT. Game 4 everyone rests again while the second string gets another tune up.

    So, has your team played game 3? Did they win? If they did not, I fear you will be eliminated first round of play offs if you make it at all.

    Sorry for the bad news.

    It's been a weird pre-season for 'my'* team, Green Bay.

    Game #1 @ Pittsburgh

    Favre and the first string suck, getting I think 1 first down out of 14 tries? Second string comes on and plays well enough to win. Looking ok at this point.

    Game #2 Against Seattle

    Everyone plays extremely well. Favre and the first string play fast and furious. Same with the second string. Seattle was blown out of the water (or air), and all is looking great.

    Game #3 against Jacksonville

    First string is looking impressive once again. Scoring 13 points and allowing none. Normally this is the game where starters play 3 or more quarters (didn't know that till now, or didn't pay enough attention in the past), but the first string came out after the first half. The second string had been playing solid in all the games so far, but this time, they fall apart, and allow 21 points and score none, losing the game.

    Predictions:

    9-7. Almost the same team as last year, but there's more experience and some good talent from the draft. If Favre sticks around another year, they'll have a shot. But probably not this year (although since the NFC is pretty weak, they could still probably make the playoffs).


    *I have to pay attention to Green Bay because I get nothing else. Although, sadly, they are my favorite team now.

    At least the Patriots are doing good in 3rd preseason game, crushed Carolina 24-7, excellent passing by Brady, pretty good rushing by Maroney, Stallworth and Welker were excellent. Jarvis Green had a fun night as well...

    Seattle did okay. It handed Minn a good thump. I'm still a bit concerned about our secondary which is unfortunate because we really spent some money in that department. Also, our O-line still seems a little suspect. The 1st string line should play very well, but if anyone gets injured (and some one almost surely will) . . .

    As a Viking fan I'm already looking at Mel Kiper's site to see who will be available with the #1 or 2 overall pick.

    lol, you just made my day. I think that that packers are due for a little better then 9-7. They came on strong at the end of last year as the o-line started to gel. The team as a whole is young, and their success depends on how well Brandon Jackson, AJ Hawk, and the other young guys play. But ya, vikings fans, just remember, theres always next year, or a few years after that.

    The defense is looking to be in good shape, but yeah, Brandon Jackson is going to be a key person to watch. He's doing pretty good for just being thrown in there so soon with our starter going down in camp. Our passing game is ok (Driver's hurt already, though), but if we still had Ahman Green, Najae (sp?) Davenport or Tony Fisher, I'd be a lot happier with the Packer's chances. Hopefully someone will shine.

    As for the Vikings: Good.

    And who beat your Pats in game 2? yeah that's right my Titans. Titans are going to the playoffs this year. Woohoo Titans all the way.

    No. They won't. Sorry. But think about the picture.

    Patriots
    Colts
    Chargers
    Ravens

    Bengals or Chiefs/Broncos. Do you really think the Titans can outdo the Bengals or Chiefs AND Broncos? Maybe in NFC.

    Game 1, game 2, game 3, and game 4 mean little, but all have the same significance: Rookies. Maybe THAT'S why there are no standings during the preseason.

    Something tells me you're going to argue with me again

    As long as we beat up on the Packers twice, I'll consider it a successful season.

    Hmm the Vikings. I'd like to call them the mystery team, representing last year's Saints. They have potential to suck, be ok, or succeed.
