Why was the New Orleans-Pittsburgh game yesterday on the NFL Network? Does the NFL want us to not watch?

I'm lucky in that I have DirectTV.

Where I live our local cable provider (MediaCom) is actually fighting battles on two fronts

NFLNetwork & Big Ten Network

I'm sure it's the same battle all over the states. Cable providers want the NFL on a sports tier, while NFL would like it part of the basic package. Problem is if it's put on the basic package, then the rates will go up.

I'm very glad I ditched cable a few years ago. Also being a Iowa Hawkeye fan, I'm lucky BTN is included in my programming.

On a more football note:

There is rumor that another Bengal has been arrested....but purely a rumor right now. The hot rumor a few weeks ago was that Patriot Teddy Bruschi had died. Not the case.

NFC: Rams vs Bears
AFC: Chargers vs Colts

Super Bowl: Bears vs Colts again

Don't know, don't care....

Not happy with my picks, but they were the most logical.

I would probably lean towards the Colts, only because of Bob Sanders and Dallas Clark.....

and because I feel Peyton needs more exposure.

Just where exactly did you hear this rumor? What a stretch that was considering he can be seen on the practice field every day for the last 10 days or so.

Well, I'll obviously be picking the Patriots to win it all, but I'll wait until preseason is over to make my other selections. There are several teams out there who are one injury away from having a potential 10-6 season turn into a 7-9 campaign.

I'm excited for the Bears new season, only wish we could of gotten a QB, I hate Rex and rather have some second round pick play instead of him...

And if anyone is going to defend him on this statement, id like to talk, he is the fault for losing the superbowl..

Get a lot of good information from this website:

http://www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm

The guys who run the site seem to have a lot of common sense, and I think one of them has a Law degree, so he's provided awesome insight into the Ron Mexico case.

Mark my words: the Bears probably won't make the playoffs, and if they do, it's only because the NFC North is terrible.

Picking them to make the Super Bowl though is absolutely ludicrous. I'm willing to make a (non-money) wager on this.

Who else would you pick? The top teams that I have in the NFC are

Eagles
Saints
Panthers
Bears
Rams
Seahawks

I really think the Rams might sneak up on people. They have a outstanding RB in Jackson, a pretty explosive WR group, great TEs. If their defense can improve from last year (shouldn't take much) I don't see how they won't be a force...in the NFC.

I picked the Bears because I figure they will have home field due to how pathetic NFC North is, and how good their defense is.

I hope my prediction is wrong, cause the Bears bore me. If I picked from the heart, I'd go with the 49ers, but they still have a long way to go offensively, and I don't like their schedule.

Pffft. Kyle Orton has clearly shown himself to be the # 2 QB in camp so far. Mr. Greise should go get his clipboard.
