OK football fans, isn't it great to welcome in the first week of NFL games?!?  And isn't it just a little bit ridiculous to start talking about playoffs already...?   ("...PLAYOFFS....???")    Well, with so many sportswriters' jobs to justify, and so many talk shows with hours to fill ... it's just the new reality.  But no Classic Rock Station should be left out of the first week opinion polls, so here's my awards and observations after a full "seventeenth" of the season now WAY behind us:

Team to "Fear"- Detroit Lions ...Team to be "Scared Shitless" of-Seattle Seahawks...    Team in "Big Trouble"-Dallas Cowboys..."Cinderella" Team-Tennessee Titans   ....   Biggest Surprise - Miami Dolphins... "Same B.S., Different Year"- Cleveland Browns ...  Best Cheerleaders- Tampa Bay Bucs ("Honorable Mention" to everyone else except Green Bay and Cleveland)

Be sure to catch the 3-hour long special debate on this list every week on ESPN 8.. "The Ocho" ...
