by Scott Scott 9/9/103 Comment Comments »

Yes football fans, it's that time again.  Time to unpack the tailgating equipment, grab your team's jersey out of storage and get ready to cheer on your team for this upcoming NFL season.

Tonight, the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints kickoff the 2010 NFL season with a rematch from last year's epic NFC title game, won in overtime by the eventual Super Bowl Champion Saints.  Will the reigning champs begin this season like they ended last season?

I want to see what FanIQ has to say about this year's NFL season.  Give me your division leaders, wild card teams, surprise and disappointing teams/players, your NFC/AFC champions and finally, your 2010/2011 Super Bowl Champions.

Questions 23 and 24 are like this.  If you think an AFC team will win the Super Bowl, for question 23 choose AN AFC TEAM (choose below).  Then, for question 24 choose the AFC team or OTHER if it isnt listed.  If you think a NFC team will win the Super Bowl, for question 23 choose the team or OTHER if they arent listed.  Then, for question 24 choose AN NFC TEAM (CHOOSE ABOVE)

For question 9, I do mean the Panthers, even though I dont expect them to be a serious answer.  That answer was more so just to try and get people to think before making there selections.

Favre and the Vikings will NOT sweep the Packers this year OR even win the division. They'll be the top Wild Card seed but it's the Packers this year. Aaron Rodgers is gonna light the league up

i wouldnt really pick texans as a surprise team. EVERYONE knows they are good, its just that they are in a hard conference so its hard to make playoffs over there unless u are almost undefeated.  mark sanchez is not that good of a qb to take that team as far as they went last year, as monday night will show this. never count my boy tom brady out, the pats are going far this year. and cincy should win the division again and look to send carson palmer to the pro bowl. cincy still has a good d and an even better offense, while ravens got a better offense but an aging and banged up D.

 as for vikes and saints, the game was good, and i expected more points but and a win for the vikes but all is good. great game to open the season with. cant wait for that sunday night game when the skins trample dallas :-) i like the pizza commercial with dan and jerry.
