Labor Day, Schmabor Day. Peter King reports for duty and exhibits more cojones than your average preseason prognosticator. Actually, Peter and I agree on a lot of things... We both like Seattle, we're both off the Jaguars bandwagon, and we both get a strange not-so-fresh feeling from the Eagles. Peter's playoff teams are mostly repeats of last season (including the Cowboys, surprise) but he has some interesting AFC 9-7 picks: Steelers, Browns, and Bills. (Yes, I did originally type "MMBQ" by mistake, "Monday Morning Barbeque.")
The league's northern divisions pose a number of meaty questions, such as: "Is the Bears' offense due for a repeat performance?" "Why do the Lions have such pronounced splits?" and "Has Johnny Manziel made the Cleveland brass even crazier?"
