Sure, it's a long shot, but I could deal with an $800 return, and it's certainly a better risk than most of the other teams on the bottom 1/4 of that list...

Hoinestly I was looking at Houston and New Orleans big time longshots but there is no risk and huge reward. Buffalo wouldnt be a bad bet either.

the falcons would probably be the best pick, you get 21:1 odds and the falcons are greatly improved from the team 2 years ago that beat the pack in lambeau.

Look at the Bucs division...who's really going to stop them?
Falcons are still putting things together, and no single person can turn a team into a division leader...even if it is Vick
Saints...december collapse
Panthers...they haven't changed much from last year, but every year a superbowl participant becomes mediocre and I don't see that happening to the Patriots

I think the Bucs will be a team to look out for in their division

No offense, but I entirely disagree with your arguement.

The Falcons are a team that revolves around Mike Vick. With Vick gone, they suck. With Vick present, the Falcons were a competant team. Vick cannot literally turn the Falcons into a division leader; he cannot play for their defense. HOWEVER, he gives life and power to an offense that may very well light up the field this season. Before Vick went down last year, he had a solid 2002 campaign, and so did the Falcons. I wouldn't down the birds simply because of the "1 man can't win a title" theory

The Saints did have a December collapse, and I doubt they will push for the title. They will finish behind the bucs, and I agree with you here. However, keep in mind they came close to the playoffs last year, and that offense is still intact.

The Panthers...I hate this arguement. In the long run, there will always be a "mediocre team after a superbowl." But you can't just slap down that analysis and that analysis alone and expect to walk away clean. You need to prove why the Panthers are going to fall behind the Bucs. Offensively, the Panthers gained another wideout in Keary Colbert out of USC, and have 2 capable backs in Foster and Davis. Delhomme proved EVERYONE wrong last year and showed himself to be a solid, underrated QB. There are no big changes on defense; they picked up Armstead and Gamble while losing Grant (who wasn't very good anyways) With much of the same still present, I don't think you can just rule the Panthers out of the title.
