    I don't hate the Pats. I am just an anything New England Schadenfreuder. :)

    But lawrencebosox knows his sports more. Probably because he loses more. Haha.

    That said, we should probably get a little philmug weekly betting pool going (that's me talking, sans the mod hat). The NBA thread's a little too crowded, plus weekly games are more pool-friendly than daily games. Lawrence can play banker and set the over/under lines. :) Who's in?

    EDIT: OK, maybe no money involved. Just weekly picks, then we tally total wins at the end of the season!

    i love my Eagles but i think Green
    Bay would be tough to bet against this year.

    i'm picking the Cowboys over the Giants to open things up.

    The Packers host the Niners for the opening on Sunday. SF is getting a break going to Green Bay this early in the season. The West Coast teams usually have a problem playing in Green Bay when it starts snowing.

    Is there an alternative way to watch some live games aside from subscribing to ASN (American Sports Network, ch. 69 on Skycable) or purchasing NFL Gamepass (which I did last season, but it's much more expensive now)???

    If Hulu shows the games, I suppose the costs are the monthly VPN charge plus your broadband Internet subscription fee.

    Comcast XFinity might be another option, although I haven't explored it fully because I have a Slingbox on a Comcast cable subscription.

    Sorry, but these leads are the best I can do. You'll have to do further research.

    I too am subscribed to ASN, but am considering Gamepass for on-demand viewing. I suppose the cheapest option is to only follow one team, which is roughly the same as one year's ASN subscription. But Gamepass is better because it is on-demand; you don't have to follow ASN's unpredictable schedule. HTH.

    Thanks, Roland.
    I've just subscribed to ASN. I'm still hoping that NFL will offer a cheaper alternative.

    It used to be that ESPN and Star Sports would carry games, but with the limited interest in the region they decided to let ASN pick up the cost of carrying the NFL. It seems to me that ASN carries more games than the others used to and they have HD! I just turn on the subscription when its time for the NFL, then cancel after the Superbowl, so just about 5 months.

    ASN by the way is All Sports Network, though by the types of sports they carry it does seem like the American Sports Network.

    Read the Calvin Johnson article on the latest issue of ESPN Mag. Megatron is more like Optimus Prime.

    any doubts regarding the speed of Manning's integration to the Broncos offense were quickly dashed in Denver's second drive in the 49ers preseason game. 5-5 resulting in a TD, his first with the orange crush.

    passing 10/12, 122 yards, 2 TDs in first quarter play, done for the day.

    still hate my Broncos. ;)
