It's gonna be a tough year to talk about football - unless the Vikings make some dramatic changes in the upcoming bye week I think that it is going to be a very long year.
A number of people will and are blaming Favre and yes he deserves some of it but he does not have a whole lot of experienced wide receivers to throw to. And the vikings are paying a lot of money to Berrian for a whole lot of nothing. I don't expect he will be resigned by the Vikings after the season. And Childress is back to his confused looking self when things are not going as he expects, plus I think he has some serious issues when it comes to people saying what they think he should do. so on the plus side the year could result in a good draft pick and better coach.
So far the Bears are doing well, they are not necessarily pretty about it but they are looking better than they have in recent years.
Green Bay is arguably the best team in the NFC North and I have no doubts they will rebound from their penalty extravaganza with the Bears, however they do appear to still have their offensive line problems.
Detroit is still Detroit - yes they appear to have a good running back in Jahvid Best but that won't be enough, just ask Barry Sanders.
And strangely enough the jets games have been one of the games shown here the past couple of weeks, and aside from the first week they have improved each week and a lot of how they do will most likely depend on how Sanchez manages the game and if he can work out a connection with Holmes when he can play again. And though Revis not playing is a loss if you can't win without one player you probably don't deserve to. i expect them to have the upper hand when the Vikings face them in week 5.
I don't think anyone was expecting what they have seen from the Steelers with no QB to speak of. the only thing that is more surprising is Kansas City being 3-0 but we shall see if that holds up.
As far as the Colts go people can hate Peyton manning all they want but I personally think he is one of the smartest QB's in football and teams pretty much have to play absolutely perfect defense to rattle him and sometimes that doesn't even work.

Hey! what are you doing here on my NFL blog!
Geez though - it would be good to get opinions form other NFL fans here. Where the hell are dobbler, rings and sellsword?
Yes - Ryan has got a lot of talk - and very little to actually show for it. And this week we have Braylon Edwards driving drunk on the West Side highway - and STILL PLAYING in the game Sunday. way to step up Jets. Ugh. At any rate - i can at least take soalce in teh whipping we laid on teh Patriots in the secodn half - and this sure has been an inetresting team to watch so far in 2010.
Steelers ahve surprised me by looking dominanat without Roethlisberger so far. And the Colts looked scary good sunday night. until furtehr notice - i think those tow are still the class of the AFC and the Jets ahve a ways to got before we are in their weight class.
