Don't think I didn't notice that you two cheated and put multiple teams on your "Honourable Mention" list. Suck it up and make the tough calls, ladies. You both look like Mike Martz out there.

And Kimmis, how do the Bucs make it on your list when a) they had a Bye Week and b) they have never been on your list? At least the Pats and Jags were on the list somewhere before.

I am glad to see that none of us have been fooled by the Seahawks.

The NFC East teams appear to simply be indistinguisable at this point, so I saw no reason to pick one or the other. And I don't see how this is a "tough" call. We're not talking about BCS votes here. I should have just followed your lead and gone with the homer pick (Eagles in your case, Pats in mine).

I don't see how picking the two Superbowl contestants from last year are "homer picks'.

1. I don't think it's cheating to put two teams on my honourable mention list, and I give props to Abboud for realizing the entire NFC East is indistinguishable. But if it makes you feel better, next week I will put on a non-existent team whose name I made up. ("The Los Angeles Raiders of Anaheim", anyone?)

2. If you want consistency, go talk to someone who actually watched a game last week. Last Sunday I was in Ottawa fighting off a wedding hangover exacerbated by only ten hours of sleep in three days.

As for the Bucs, sometimes a team who doesn't play doesn't give you a reason not to like them. The Bucs run well, have a good defense and played better last week than a lot of teams (the Cowboys and Broncos come to mind) because they didn't play.

I'm with Abboud on the Eagles. Unless every team they play from now until season's end has a Roy Reigels clone on it, it seems your ranking them that high is a bad case of homer-itis. Better go see your doctor.

You picked a team with Chris Simms as QB, and you are giving me grief about the Eagles? We'll see at the end of the season. My bet is the Colts go out faster than the Eagles.
