32 Teams, 32 Songs

  1. New England Patriots:  Scar Tissue - Red Hot Chili Peppers:  Brady's knee has looked fine and it appears that he has gotten over the injury; especially with a clutch win over the Ravens.
  2. New York Jets: Hey Joe - Jimi Hendrix:  Absolutely amazing what Sanchez has done so far.  Hey Namath.
  3. Buffalo Bills:  Thunder Road - Bruce Springsteen: Dick Jauron is on the hot seat.  After three consecutive 7-9 seasons, Bills fans want more so it looks like his last chance to make it real
  4. Miami Dolphins:  Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd:  Did you see Chad Henne play?  Yikes.  I sure fans want Chad's injury to disappear.
  5. Indianapolis Colts:  I Just Want to Celebrate - Rare Earth:  With the lose of Harrison to free agency, Gonzalez to injury, and Dungy to retirement, Colts fans must me excited about a 5-0 start.
  6. Tennessee Titans:  I Want to Break Free - Queen: I can't imagine many foresaw a 0-5 start.  A team that went 13-3 last year must still reach their first, elusive win.
  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Eye of the Tiger - Survivor:  With the Texans and Titans faltering, the Jags are going to have to stay hungry if they want a chance at the playoffs.
  8. Houston Texans: Wild World - Cat Stevens: Many peoples surprise team for the year has not look sharp with a run defense that looks like swiss cheese.  I'm not quite sure what happened here, considering the great strides the team had made in the recent years.
  9. Cincinnati Bengals:  A Change is Gonna Come - Sam Cooke:  This is a much improved team on both sides of the ball.  Their wins are not flukes; they are a serious contender.
  10. Pittsburgh Steelers:  Relax - Frankie Goes to Hollywood:  Losing the Bengals?  Beating the Lions by 8?  Chill.  The Steelers are banged up but when Troy comes back, they should return to championship form.
  11. Baltimore Ravens:  War - Edwin Starr:  With a tenacious defense the Ravens are going to be slugging it out year with the Bengals and Steelers solid defenses.
  12. Cleveland Browns:  You Can't Always Get What You Want - The Rolling Stones:  In this case, the Browns didn't get much out of Edwards, don't have a definitive quarterback, and won't get a lot of wins.
  13. Oakland Raiders: Help! - The Beatles:  Their lose to the Giants was absolutely embarrassing.  They need time to rebuild but thank god they notched a victory early over the Chiefs.
  14. San Diego Chargers: Under Pressure - David Bowie and Queen:  The Broncos, Jets, and Bengals have been surprisingly good.  The season is early but the Chargers are going to need to play quality ball to stick with the front runners of the AFC.  Plus, their running woes have been highlighted by a dismal Sproles and Tomlinson.  Tomlinson the man that was out to prove that running backs can succeed over 30 years old.  Like I said, its early.
  15. Kansas City Chiefs: Here It Goes Again - Ok go - Its been a long time since they have one a game period.  They showed promise against the Cowboys but they could find the AFC West cellar again. 
  16. Denver Broncos: Abracadabra - Steve Miller Band - Wow.  And just like that the Broncos are back.  Marshall, Orton, and the defense are all clicking and working like magic.
  17. New York Giants: Imperial March - John Williams: Okay, they're not the dark side but they are scary good.  They are the team to beat.
  18. Washington Redskins:  Money - Pink Floyd:  Haynesworth. Nuff said. (This could also apply to the Cowboys)
  19. Dallas Cowboys:  Life in the Fast Lane - The Eagles:  The Cowboys have not coalesced and are still working on their chemistry.  They have the talent but their have been lingering off field issues (i.e.  Jessica - The Allman Brothers Band)
  20. Philadelphia Eagles: Thunderstruck - AC/DC: This dynamic offense looks unstoppable at times.  An electric receiving core and three great quarterbacks will care them to the playoffs.
  21. New Orleans Saints: Remember the Name - Fort Minor ft. Styles of Beyond:  Once again, this is no fluke.  The Saints have improved on defense and you can forget about stopping their aerial attack.  Watch out.
  22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Who'll Stop the Rain - Creedance Clearwater Revival:  Wasn't this the team that started 9 -3 last year and won a Super Bowl not to long ago.  
  23. Atlanta Falcons: Fly Like An Eagle - Steve Miller Band:  Gonzalez, White, Ryan, and Turner.  Sounds like 4 Pro Bowlers to me.  The offense is great no question but can Abraham and defense carry the load?
  24. Carolina Panthers: Run Like Hell - Pink Floyd - Williams and Stewart need to shake off the slow starts and open up the pass game.  Without the run the Panthers are in trouble and cannot afford to be one-dimensional.
  25. Minnesota Vikings: Takin' Care of Business - Bachman Turner Overdrive:  Don't doubt Favre.  5-0 and playing as well as ever.  The Vikes look like a contender with their stout defense of Williams, Williams, and Allen on the line.
  26. Chicago Bears: Old Days - Chicago: Competing with an actual quarterback.  The Bears have looked good with the exception of Cutler's four pick first week.
  27. Green Bay Packers: Welcome to the Jungle - Guns N' Roses:  Vikes, Bears, and Packers all have tremendous quarterbacks that will be trying to gun the others down.  The quarterback competition is stellar so get ready for some close match ups.
  28. Detroit Lions: Come Together - The Beatles:  The Lions have one win and despite four loses have shown promise.  Keeping it within 8 against the Steeler is not an easy task.  Plus, Johnson is argueably the best receiver in the game (along with Moss, A. Johnson, Marshall, & Fitzgerald)
  29. San Francisco 49ers: The Wizard - Al Di Meola:  The 49ers, lead by Mike Singletary have risen back to power.  Patrick Willis is the best linebacker and Gore has the most rushing yards since 2006, (check that fact.)  With the signing of Crabtree, all they need is a true quarterback.
  30. St. Louis Rams: Drown In My Own Tears - Ray Charles:  I think Spagnula is a fine coach but the Rams are just pitiful beyond belief.  Fans missing the Greatest Show on Turf more than ever.
  31. Seattle Seahawks: Just What I Needed - The Cars:  A 41-0 walloping of the Jaguars! Curry, T.J. How's your momma, Carlson, and Hasselbeck have all looked great so far.  Expect the Seahawks to rebound from last year.
  32. Arizona Cardinals: Business Time - Flight of the Conchords: The 49ers have started hot and the running game is non-existent.  Wells and Warner are going to be the biggest keys in their future success.
