Hard to believe the Vikings decided to take themselves out of the playoff race in the preseason, instead of waiting until week 3 or 4 like normal

*has no idea what the Texans have been doing in the off season*

*checks to see who the hell their quarterback is*

*Q1 Brock Osweiler*
*Who?!?*
*10 TDs and 6 INTs in 7 games last year for Denver...sounds like a starter to me, sure*

*Q2 Tom Savage*
*10 of 19 for 2014 season...okay...*

*Q3 Brandon Weeden*
*A quarterback not even good enough for the Cleveland Brownstains or the Dallas Cowgirls*


*ready to give up on the Texans before the season even starts*

Yeah but the great thing about being a Vikings fan is you don't even have to watch the season to know it doesn't end well.  Just think of all the time saved with that little tidbit of information!

True. It must be much easier to start out the season knowing it will only end in abject failure.

I also appreciate not having the obligation to defend men wearing uggs.

If the other 3 teams in your division are the Jets, Bills and Dolphins you better win it every year! Since 2001 those three teams have won 10 games a total of 7 times.

Yeah, the AFC East has been a cream puff division for awhile.

Being a Bengals fan, we've come to expect them to make the playoffs, then lose the 1st game, even when they're the favorite and at home.

One reason is that they've all been pretty well penciled in for losing to the Pats every year.

I do love it when the Pats pound on their division rivals.

Nothing like starting out with 6 wins guaranteed. You can go 4-6 against the rest of the league and make the playoffs!
