Well the boys (niners) are looking pretty good at 4 - 0.
Early days and albeit against some questionable teams there has been improvements across all 3 parts of the game.

How are everyone's teams looking?

Real happy with Green Bay so far. Massive improvements on the defense which has sucked for the last 5 plus years. Offense is still shaping and are only playing half a game so far but are 4 and 1 after playing some very good teams,

If you'd told me after Brees hurt his thumb that the Saints would be 4-1, after playing the Seahawks and Cowboys, I would have laughed. So pretty good all told!

Teddy isn't setting the world on fire but he doesn't need to as long as the defense keeps turning up and Thomas and Kamara take turns to dominate. The way Brees faded down the stretch last year, I can't help but feel like this injury may be a blessing in disguise, if he can come back and play his best football in the playoffs.

I like the switch plays the saints do with Hill coming into QB, keeps the D guessing.
- Merged

Colts trucking along somehow. BBQ Brisket is going well but still not on the level of Luck.

****....that still hurts.
Colts D looks strong though Fozz Fozz, BBQ seems decent enough.

Look at the trade like this. The #49ers sent the #Broncos a third for Emmanuel Sanders. They then traded back from the end of the 4th to the beginning of the 5th. Both teams get great value. Sanders is plug-and-play from Scangarello. #49wz

Half way through the regular season everyone.
What are everyone's updated thoughts on their teams?
Really keen to get a bit more discussion going on the NFL.

Minnesota re-enforced themselves as the pretenders of the competition. They can beat lesser opposition, but when they find themselves in the arm-wrestle they fold under pressure and allow themselves to sit back and watch other teams come up with some amazing plays.

There's been some shining lights and they're still in with a chance of making the post-season, but it's the same ol' song out of Minny.

Fortunately everyone in the NFC North had a forgettable week, so it wasn't as bad. Still, that was a statement game against Chiefs and they squandered it.

The Saints are going so well despite adversity, it's making me worried that an even worse end is coming this season than the last two...

Looking forward to the Niners-Saints game in a few weeks. Might decide the top seed for the NFC.

I'll watch the condensed version tonight Big Pete Big Pete but what do you think the Vikings deficiencies are?

At the moment, the corners have really gone backwards at a rate of knots. Rhodes used to be one of the better defensive players of the NFC, now he's on the other side of the equation and the Vikings are just getting caught out in big moments in the game.

Otherwise it's just general lapses. There was a play this afternoon where Cousins would have had first down, but slid before the line forcing the punt. Just stuff like that which is the fine line between genuine contenders and pretenders.

Gonna be a cracking match mate.
We have a real tough schedule coming up against the Seahawks, GB, Ravens and you guys.

The NFC is a tight contest this year.

Jeez, that's a stretch and a half! In contrast the Saints have the Falcons twice, the Bucs and the Panthers! All in division though, I'd be surprised if one of those isn't an upset...

Yeah, these next few games will be the true test of where we are at.
Speaking of your division haven't the Falcons fallen off. Over the cap apparently. That SB window is small at times.

It will be a cakewalk against us if they don’t pull their finger out, today was disgraceful.
