    SHOCKING NEWS!!!! STEEL WHEELS IS READY TO CONCEDE/QUIT BEFORE THE SEASON HAS EVEN BEGUN

    Yes, it is true, Steel Wheels aka Chase aka Chicken Little has already begun his annual rendition of "peep, peep, peep, peep ... The Sky is falling."

    I know that many of you are thinking, "but doesn't Steel (training) Wheels/Chase/Chicken Little always sing this song. Well, yes, however what is unique about it this time is its timing. He usually reserves the space between mini-camps and training camps to work on his favorite, "buk, buck, buucck, buuuccckk... Sherman Sucks"

    Stay tuned for further developments in this breaking story.

    LOL...shocking....isn't it Bruce? I am also honored that he has followed his ****-erotic stalking tendencies from one forum to another. He is now using a PARTIAL quote of mine as his signature block. DePack don't go that way........not that there's anything wrong with that.

    Shooossssssssshhhh!!!!!!!! I feel better now.I was up late last night worrying about when STEEL WHEELS would bless up with his ever so accurate predictions for the NFC.

    I actually have been a mess lately pondering what Steel Wheels thinks about the NFL as a whole.Everyday I eagerly run to my computer to check for any new posts that are bubbling over with such thought out rational information.


    Honestly this is nothing more than a flame made by an attention starved mongoloid

    New Orleans has good offense. Weak defense played well last 4 games of 2004. If they improve on defense they will be tough.

    In Carolina QB Jake Delhomme lost WR Muhsin Muhammad and Steve Smith is questionable with injuries. RB's Steven Davis and DeShaun Foster are ???.

    In Atlanta Michael Vick's top receiver in 2004 was TE Alge Crumpler with 48 catches and 6 TD's. WR's Peerless Price, Dez White and Brian Finneran only had 7 TD's between them.

    Vick's passing skills and shoulder injury are ???.

    Tough division but I'll give the edge to New Orleans.

    I agree somewhat with Steel Wheels. Though i believe the Falcons will win the south but the Saints will get in as a wildcard. And i think that the Cardianls will win the west and the Seahawks will not get into the playoffs.

    East: Eagles
    West: Cardinals
    North: Packers
    South: Falcons

    Wild Card: Rams, Saints

    Eagles are the best team in the east so they'll win it again. The west is a toss up for me between the Rams and Cardianls but i think the Cards will do it. I have the Packers winning the north because i really believe the Viqueens will stumble because they did what the Redskins did last year, brought in washed up players who they thought would help them and the Lions still need a quarterback, if they start Garcia then i'll view them as a threat, and the Bears will need time, maybe next year. The Falcons will take the south because the Bucs suck, and the Panthers will have no offense with questionable injuries to Smith, Foster, Davis, only good players would be Goings and Colbert, and if the Saints can play consistent ball then they will and could be a threat, so they'll take a wildcard. And well only other team i thought had a chance to make the playoffs would be the Rams but i might change my mind on that pick.

    Too many variables to pick any '05 playoff teams in NFL -16 days before Training camp begins. It is all guess work. It is a waste of time. Steel Wheels picks prove it!!

    We will see how good the Packers look in pre-season. Don't forget pre-season is important.

    NFL preseason games are a good gauge for regular season success

    By Greg Dempson

    The very first nationally published article I wrote (in Winner's Edge magazine) contained a football quote by Bill Parcells, the master at winning and covering preseason contests. Parcells stated, "People who think preseason football is meaningless don't know anything about football."

    Preseason success is a remarkably accurate barometer in determining a teams' success during the regular season. Did you know that 30 out of the previous 39 Super Bowl champions (76.9%) won .500 or more of their preseason contests straight up? You do now! Since Super Bowl I, the 39 winning teams had a combined preseason margin of 116 - 68 - 2 or 62.3% straight up. Marv Levy was one coach who didn't take the preseason seriously; he had a losing record in three of the four preseason years that Buffalo advanced to the Super Bowl. Perhaps that is one of the reasons why the Bills went 0 - 4 straight up!

    Free agency and parity as well as salary caps have changed the way the game is played since 1993. When reviewing the past decade, I noted the following preseason records with regards to the past 11 Super Bowl champions.

    1994 - the 49ers went 3 - 1.
    1995 - the Cowboys went 2 - 3.
    1996 - the Packers 3 - 1.
    1997 - the Broncos went 3 - 2.
    1998 - the Broncos went 3 - 1.
    1999 - the Rams went 2 - 2.
    2000 - the Ravens went 4 - 0.
    2001 - the Patriots went 3 - 1.
    2002 - the Buccaneers went 3 - 1.
    2003 - the Patriots went 4 - 0.
    2004 - the Patriots went 1-3

    The past 11 Super Bowl winners produced a 31 - 15 or 67.3% preseason record and only the Cowboys (1995) and Patriots (2004) had a losing records in the preseason. Both the Cowboys and Patriots were defending Super Bowl Champions so they were able to overcome their poor pre-season records.

    Chase,

    Though your unending nonsense and self-importance has been duly noted, I still gotta say, PRE-season may be important as a preparatory tool to get READY for the regular season.

    Some players need to be LOOKED at, others need to be TESTED and the coaches need to work the bugs out of the team's plans.

    If ALL the coaches came into preseason thinking that it is any more than an evaluation process, there wouldn't BE a PRE_SEASON.

    By YOUR argument, you are saying that NFL shouldn't even HAVE a regular season, just go straight into playoffs from pre-season.

    we've already been through this. preseason means absolutely nothing..ask Greg Dempson what happened in Spurrier's first regular season with the Redskins. he went 4-0 in the preseason all won in huge blowout fashion. just one small example.

    preseason is a great way to see how your second team plays against the opposing second team though. whoopee!

    I think the same can be said for the first 5-7 games of the regular season. It gives decent indication but is very disceiving
