    I heard on the radio that every year the team in last place in that division has gone to win the division the year after over the last couple years. The buccanneers were last in 2006. Strange, no?

    odd too bad it doesn't work like that in the AFC south, every year the team in last place stays there and team in #1 generally stays there. I think 2 and 3 flop around a bit.

    2004 - Atlanta wins division (11-5)
    Tampa Bay in last place (5-11)

    All depends on how bad the falcons are.

    Our division reminds me of a quote from a great great movie.

    "If you ain't first, you're last"

    Which should be a lesson to folks who always want to say getting from a 6-10 record or that vicinity to the playoffs is a 2-3 year process.

    I've watched the Saints since they drafted Ricky Williams(I stopped since they ditched Joe Horn)... I've been saying that for years.

    I literally couldn't hold myself together when Drew Brees was drafted early in the second round of our Fantasy draft.

    Who knows? I just know that the fact that our whole division sucks is one of the few glimmers of hope we have! :rofl:

    Add on the fact that no one in the division has played the Titans or the Colts yet, and they're likely looking at a couple more losses each. Thanks to the Texans, Carolina has another loss and the Falclowns are due to go 0-4 this Sunday. :D
