Surprise team......so far

If I had to pick the surprise team this year.....(so far)...
It would have to be the Bengals.
Who would have thunk that they would be 4 and 1 right now.
Sure there are some 5 and 0 teams, the Vikes look good,
the Broncos are doing great, and I didn't expect to see them at 5 - 0 right now........
The Giants ... 5 - 0 ....but that's not really a surprise.,,,good team, good coaching.....

But I really never thought that the Bengals would be 4 - 1 right now.
I'm not sure who they've played, or who they have coming up.....
But Go Bengals.

Hey Bull

I don't think it would surprise you to find out that MBC63 and I were watching the Bengals closely in the off season.

We talked about the fact that the Bengals are in a run oriented division. The added addition of the perennial Pro Bowler Roy Williams has strengthened their defense.

The Giants simply have lucked out a few games, now they will be facing a Buzzsaw in N.O.s. The Giants don't have any more depth than anyone else, and any injuries will really weaken this team. I'm not convinced they are really that good. We pushed them all over the field, lets see what Drew Brees does to them.

I think Minnesota is really surprising teams, and Da Bears will get their share of wins also. Its going to be interesting how things really shake out at the end of the season.

I think a healthy Cowboys team is as good as anybody, but we have shown we are not deep either at some positions.

How was your camping trip?

I think the Bengals were 2-3 players from getting respect. They have some good coaches, they just needed a few guys in key spots. Their WRers and their QB were in place. Now the D is actually stopping people.

I think the real suprises are the teams that were supposed to be good, faltering out of the blocks. But things should get real interesting in the next 5 weeks, that will separate the contenders from the pretenders.

I only hope the Saints put it on the Giants, we need them to start coming back to us.

KC, I don't think anybody expected them to be as bad as they are. The score didn't show it, but we totally dominated them. That team is in bad shape, they are done for the season.

Whats happened with the Raiders, I thought they would make a run at somebody. I just hope they don't decide to play good football on Turkey Day.

Hey Bull--------How bout dem Giants-------lmao

Whats up Bull?

You stop by and put up a post, then you never come back to comment on it.?

There are always some teams who rise to the top early, but the skill level catches up to some of those before its over. This is still a league of 1-2 guys can make or break you.

I don't think the Bengals were that much of a surprise team, since there was talk about them doing good before the season started... with Palmer at supposed full strength, and their defense being that much better.   And they are also a team that tends to do good at the beginning of the season...

No, to me, the surprise team of the year has to be the Broncos... when you consider what people were saying before the season started.  You know, right after that fiasco with Cutler, and then when Marshall was giving them problems.   People were thinking that McDaniel's team would do what KC is doing right now.  To me that has to be the surprise of the season so far... coupled with the complete Tennessee Titan turn around.

Sorry all......sometimes I get too busy...and I visit 2 other blog sites, and that keeps me busy.
Work is getting busy too......
Dag nabbit....I gotta win the lottery, then I'll have more time.
I will try to make the extra effort to stop by more often.
This is a good forum, as are the other 2 that I visit, guess I just have to divide up my blogging time a little better.


Sometimes you don't have a song in your heart.....sing anyway.

Hey Bull

I'm guilty also, its seems everything slows down when the Boys are winning.

I guess we just have nothing to complain about
Hawk

Glad you are back Bull

Nuff said

You need to get in the game, Ed just arrived and he's playing, you only need to get hot a few times and you'll be right up there with the rest of us.

Surprise team to me our the Cowboys, and the biggest surprise is we aren't 8-0, can't have everything I guess.
Nightrider

All real Cowboy fans know, this team should be 8-0, but sometimes losing can help, and like you said earlier SH, losing has brought this team together, so it was a good thing.
silverhelmet

NR,I like the way you said that real Cowboy fans,You know since I've been on the Realm ,I've noticed how many real fans there are ,We have some of the greatest fans in the World and I say World cause , Were every where.

You know, on the picks each week ,when we pick players, I want to pick Cowboy players,LOL
But I don't for a reason, every time I bet on the Cowboys ,sure as hell they will lose so I haven't bet on them for two decade,s or so,LOL,I guess picking isn't really betting, but the risk is much.
Hawk

Hey SH, Romo is as good a pick as any other QB. But the Boyz are playing like a team, no superstars. So with Romo spreading the ball around its hard to pick a Cowboy player. Plus the defense has somebody different picking it up each week.

As for fans, it really should be about the game, we can find our selves getting caugh up in the media bullshit way to often. I watch because I'm a football fan, when it gets to be life or death, then its time to stop watching.  The real test of a fan comes when, doesn't matter how many games your team loses, you still root for them and see the guys who are trying and giving all they have. When a person becomes bitter and all he can see are the mistakes, then its time for that person to move on. Doesn't matter how many times he says, I'm a Fan, because that is not true. Whats true is his ego is out of control, and he sees himself as smarter than an entire organization of professionals.

I still say the surprise team is the Bengals.
They are playing really good right now....I hope they don't peak out, and then crumble.
Not that I'm a Bengals fan, but they are,...if I had to pick one....my second favorite team.

I hestitate to say anything Bull because then you will disappear.

But not everybody is surprised, but you are right it is a surprise the way they are rolling over the top dogs in their division.

I guess I am surprised at the Bengals, since they have been one of the armpits of the NFL for a while.....maybe not quite like the LIons....but still....

I didn't expect them to beat Pittsburg though.

Maybe it's their year.

Well BW They already have and 2 times this season by the way.

They did well in the draft and F/A......

No surprise here.


Good Day

I think the surprise team is the Saints..The Beagles are good but that loss to Oakland stings..

I also think Carolina is the other surprise team in the opposite direction..

In the end, it would be nice to see the Cowboys be the surprise team..
Hawk

Cowboys will only be a surprise if they don't win a playoff game.

Other than that, great draft and great picks in the FA market. New this team was going to be tough, they just needed some team leadership. Thank you Olshanski and Brooking for getting the heads straight on defense.

Thank you JJ for finally listening to me about Austin, now wake up and get Hurd in the game.
