So we're a quarter through the regular season with the Colts, Vikings, Giants, Broncos and Saints unbeaten. Which teams do you think are the pretenders and the contenders for the superbowl?

Which teams do you think can emerge from slow starts of 2-2 and lower?

i wouldnt have picked the broncos to do so well with out cutler.

this is gonna sound bias but i believe the steelers can bring it back. we just need polamalu in our secondary and we will look much better. we are having problems with finishing and the 2 we lost werent by much.

im also liking the look of the bears atm. they have become my second favourite team Very Happy.

indy have looked pretty good so far...although there hasnt been too many tough tests over the 4 games u have to play wat is in front of u and weve been doing that quite well imo

denver surprised me, i dont think they can keep it up all the way to the end but theyll defs be in the mix come christmas imo. the vikings were pretty impressive today and will also be there or thereabouts imo. the saints have impressed me too, they are scoring points for fun and with brees in this sort of form who knows?

obviously ud have to think the pats and steelers will pick up some form over the next few weeks

I really think this is the year for the Colts. Peyton is healthy and having no signs of ageing while our defense is going well with a few injuries. We shut-out the Cards, who were terrible that night, but the Jags, Hawks and Dolphins aren't really tests.

IMO, the saints are the real deal, they've always had the offense with Brees, Bush, Thomas and Colston while their defense has struggled. They addressed the defensive issues on the off-season with Sharper and Morgan and they are winning games on both sides of the ball.

Our next 4 games are
@ Tennessee
Bye
@ St Louis
vs Niners
vs Houston
vs Patriots

We should beat the Titans the way they are going, the Rams are useless and then 3 home games in a row, we could be 8-0 going into that huge one vs the Pats.

Tenessee have nothing, St Louis are worse. The niners will test us with their pretty good D, but nothing beats Peyton and the Texans are too hot and cold to beat a top team. Im pretty sure the Pats game is on SNF so it should be as big as it was 2 years ago when it was 7-0 V 8-0.

Pretender: Giants..

i just don't think they are superbowl worthy, all it takes is Eli to go down and thats it..the colts have a good defence..i personally think the giants are pretenders

Saints look like superbowl contenders to be honest

If any teams QB goes down they are no chance of winning the superbowl.

giants havent even played anyone thus far so im still not sold on them. as for who are the real deal regardless of whether they have lost or not.
saints, eagles, min and sf are my picks from nfc.
colts, ravens, patriots, and il say broncos because of the way the defence is playing in the afc.

Josh McDaniels looks to be a really good coach. He's turned that terrible defense around and disciplined players like Brandon Marshall. Having a 4-0 start in the AFC West will almost win you that division. The Broncos could go 9-7 and easily make the playoffs.

it was henne wasnt it?? he was going to get the starting spot a couple of years ago but they were able to get pennington off the jets

henne is a decent QB and will be able to lead the dolphins around just as well as pennington

I'm sure some of you would like to see Eli Manning suit up against Oakland and get crumpled by a big lad like Seymour or Kelly.

Henne > Pennington, he allows the Dolphins to open up the playbook a bit more.

Out of those undefeated teams, the Saints look the best with the Colts a close second.

Henne actually has an arm on him but doesent have the accuracy of pennington.

I have not watched heaps, but by what I have seen it looks like the Colts are going to be contenders. But you can't really judge it perfectly, this early on.

I am hoping the Steelers can get going.
