    Jerome Bettis' Sleeper Team From NFC

    During the half-time report during the Saints @ Cowboys game Jerome comes out with his sleeper team from the NFC as the Minnesota Vikings...says we have a winnable schedule and a Great Solid defense and great Rushing Offense...the only thing he said was bad was Brad Johnson's play lately...which can improve very much.

    He's one of the like 5-6 Quarterbacks in the league with a Super Bowl ring right now...I still believe... ;D

    P.S. Jerome Bettis is my new favorite NFL analyst.

    Yep ... was just watching that and liked what I heard. BJ is one of four starting QBs in the league right now with a ring (Brady, Favre, Roethlisberger and BJ) ... I believe the only other QBs in the league with a ring are Warner and Dilfer, who of course are riding the pine

    we have a good nfc division record, and if we can win out the remaining two nfc games, the other nfc teams have all their games with other nfc teams, so there record would hold a few more NFC loss's,,, we would have a 8-4 record and hold clincher with carolina and if we beat st louis (who are on the out anyways) we have a solid chance.
    jerome looked at the stats, and he obviously knows something about sleeper teams! look how hot pittsburgh got last season.

    While a Super Bowl ring is nice, it doesn't necessarily mean you're a great QB, nor does it mean if you haven't got one you stink.

    Fran Tarkenton is one good example.

    What if the Bears won the Super bowl this year? Would you want Grossman as our QB just because he has a ring?

    I'm generalizing here, not saying Brad is a great or lousy QB, just that a ring doesn't necessarily mean greatness or still great today.

    Bloedsoe has a ring & I wouldn't want him for our QB anymore than a lot of fans here would.

    lol I love how last week everyone is talking about our draft pick and "start Tarvaris" and "pick Jarrett" and as soon as we beat the lions everyone thinks we're a super bowl contender.
    At this point, I'm just watching the games for fun. Nothing to lose really.. no big expectations for this year. Let's just enjoy the last few games of the season and MAYBE we can get a wild card bid. Sometimes we get so wrapped up in winning that we forget that it's fun to watch the games.

    Very true, but what I meant was if your a starting QB for a Super Bowl winning team you obviously at least played well enough to not have your team lose...which is pretty much all the Quarterbacks with a ring right now except for Brady and Farve.

    Hell yeah, we're the sleeper. Let's just hope we don't lose the packers again and we should be alright.
