Hey, remember when the projection system said that Tampa Bay would win the NFC South and New Orleans was a one-year wonder? Remember how we all assumed the numbers were incorrect? Whoops. Plus: Historic starts in New England, Pittsburgh, and Dallas.

LaDainian Tomlinson still can't run the football, but is it possible his offensive line is what is holding him back? The Chargers can't defend a four- or five-receiver set, but is the problem Shawne Merriman? Plus, Brett Favre is just having fun again, and with the Packers running game, he'll have plenty of opportunities to prove he's a gunslinger.

Rex Grossman may have tested the limits once too often, Donovan McNabb eludes the Curse of the "halfro," Leslie Feist drives Aaron to distraction, the Rams' offense just falls apart, and Herm Edwards needs to turn on the Google.

This week, Trent Green thinks Roger Goodell can't handle the truth, Fred Taylor and Jack Del Rio stare into Matt Jones' soul (and don't like what they see), and Tampa Bay's general manager offers lame excuses for David Boston and Jerramy Stevens. Plus: Best. Herm. Ever.

Note: DEN, OAK, PHI, WAS now fixed.
