I hear ya.
Every year. There's always surprises.
But ...
14 seasons in this biz - and I'd be hard pressed to think of a more surprising start to any (ANY) season.
Blame it on the moon.

The first couple of weeks are full of surprises in the NFL, but I would have never expected Houston to beat the Fins at Miami. The Texans have never lost a opener. That just goes to show if you give Capers 9 months to prepare, he will find a way to beat you!

I started Peyton Manning and Edgerrin James both. James did almost decent, but Manning was like the 3rd lowest returning QB out there, right above Brady and Plummer. Even Favre outperformed him. Should have thrown in Vanderjagt and at least gotten SOME points on the day.

The Miami game was nuts. Who would have thought that the Denver D against Cincy would score 23 points more than the Miami D against Houston.

WOW.

ya, I don't think that the Miami loss hurt too many people in their pools, because I think EVERYONE had Miami winning that game.

For the second straight year teh Texans are 1-0, although this year was much more shocking.
Go Pats!

If I had a 2nd pick I'd have to say Marshall Faulk with 9 attempts in a complete 4-quarters game.
Nine. In a game that wasn't all that out of control.

Mike Martz is calling the plays. Apparently this makes some kind of sense to him.
But ... to the rest of the NFL Football universe ...
I think everyone is still trying to figure this one out.

I think Warners 6 fumbles were a pretty big surprise, especially with the acquisitions of turley and pace

6 fumbles? Kurt Warner had a concussion in the 1st quarter.
Mike Martz was (1) too stupid, (2) too unconcerned, (3) didn't ask or (4) didn't pay enough attention to realize his starting QB thought he was in an episode of Magnum P.I.
My 2 cents, anyway. Callin' 'em like I see 'em.

Houston was a suprise but Anquan Boldin's rookie debut was nothing short of outstanding....He did something that no other rookie has done in the history of the NFL and you gotta like that....I think this is the first of many big games for Boldin...
