It's quite often assumed that by the midpoint of the season, week 8 for example, that we should have a pretty good picture as to which teams should be contending for the playoffs, and which teams, well, won't.
Well folks, it's week 7 and that only means one thing: time to step up and shine.
All hell seems to be breaking loose in Dallas after last week's loss to Favre and the also rather unimpressive Vikings, and you have to wonder if Jerry Jones is willing to put up with it any longer.
Pittsburgh and Baltimore are throttling anyone who dares challenge them, and the Buffalo Bills are still the Buffalo Bills.
So many surprises this season, so little time, right?
In such an unpredictable year that this season has turned out to be, it seems nearly impossible to presume anything. Well, not anything, right?
Let's try our luck.
