NFL preseason ends - good thing too

NFL preseason comes to a close this weekend. I'll be glad to see the end of these meaningless football games this week.

It is the fourth and final week of the NFL preseason, and it is likely that everybody is ready to get things rolling. Me too. NFL preseason is meaningless, and so are my preseason predictions. I have already received some emails regarding last week's picks, which shows the passion that fans really do have. But it is just that. Preseason. It is tough enough to pick the regular season games, let alone ones where most of the regulars hardly even play.

I am ready to take on all comers again this year, and emails with your thoughts and analysis are very welcome. I have taken a lot of playful abuse over the last couple of years, mainly due to jealousy of my football knowledge. That is understandable. However, it is not my fault that I happen to know more than you, and once again it will be proven this year. But that is part of the fun with this column. I will pick four preseason games this week, and then on to the regular season.

As always, home team in CAPS.

It is certainly a plus that Asante Samuel is now signed, but I still have some questions with the Patriots defensive backfield. That might be their only weakness though. They should be ready to roll, at least through the regular season. I am not so sure about the Giants. It looks like Michael Strahan is going to end his "retirement", but I think the Giants' offense is going to be the key, specifically Eli Manning. The Patriots should win this preseason finale though.
Patriots 20-13

MINNESOTA VIKINGS 1 1/2 Dallas Cowboys
These two teams have a lot of issues, but being in the NFC is going to help. The Vikings just don't have a lot of talent, but their weak division is going to be a factor. As for the Cowboys, I think they are overrated. I think they have issues on offense, defense and coaching. I think their defense will be good, but probably not enough to carry them too far. And new coach Wade Phillips has not had a lot of success, and he has had his share of chances. Still, take the Cowboys here, as they are the better team, preseason or not.
Cowboys 23-17

SAN DIEGO CHARGERS 3 San Francisco 49ers
I don't seem to hear a lot of people talking about the Chargers in the AFC, but I think I know why. Norv Turner, plain and simple. He has had very little success as an NFL head coach, but he has so much talent in San Diego it might not matter. The Chargers are going to be a force in the AFC, and could very well go deep into the playoffs this year. The 49ers might well make the playoffs too. Defensive upgrades, a strong offense and mediocre division all play factors in San Francisco. They should be a team to watch. But don't watch them this week.
Chargers 26-14

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS 1 1/2 Miami Dolphins
The Saints look to be pretty good this year, and being an NFC team, they could have playoff aspirations. They do have Carolina in their division, which should be their main competition. The Dolphins are a big question mark. An entire new coaching staff, and questionable talent on both sides of the ball. I think Trent Green will help, but not that much. Take the Saints here. Why not?
Saints 20-10

Super Bowl XLV for Texas

NFL owners have awarded Super Bowl XLV in 2011 to the Dallas Cowboys' new stadium being built in Arlington, Texas.

It marks the first time a Super Bowl will be played in North Texas after the venue fought off rival bids from Indianapolis and Glendale, Arizona.

Former Dallas star Roger Staubach and Cowboys owner and president Jerry Jones made the presentation for the North Texas group.

The Cowboys' new stadium, which will feature a retractable roof and a capacity of up to 100,000, is scheduled to open in 2009.

"This is a thrill of a lifetime," said Staubach, who served as the North Texas Super Bowl Bid committee chairman.

"We're thrilled to bring the Super Bowl to North Texas and this magnificent stadium. There's a lot of work to be done. But it will really get cooking here in the near future. We're going to work real hard to live up to the responsibilities that go along with the bid."

Staubach led the Cowboys to their first two championships in franchise history - a 24-3 victory over Miami in Super Bowl VI in January 1972 and a 27-10 win over Denver in Super Bowl XII.

Texas has previously hosted the Super Bowl twice - in Houston in 2004 in the Texans' new stadium and in 1974 at Rice Stadium.

"Certainly, we're committed to do everything we can to make it the best Super Bowl there has ever been," Jones said.

"We think the capacity of our new stadium as well as the hotels and transportation were very much a positive."

The Indianapolis bid featured the Colts' domed stadium opening in 2008. However, the capacity is roughly 30,000 seats less than the Cowboys' new stadium.

Colts coach Tony Dungy, Indianapolis Motor Speedway chief executive officer Tony George and NCAA executive vice president Tom Jernstedt made the presentation for Indianapolis, who previously lost a Super Bowl bid to Minneapolis for the 1992 Super Bowl.

Glendale, Arizona hosts Super Bowl XLII in 2008 and was considered a long shot to get the nod over North Texas or Indianapolis for the 2011 game.

Tampa and Miami will host the Super Bowls in 2009 and 2010, respectively.

Not since the Cowboys defeated Buffalo in Super Bowl XXVII at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena has a Super Bowl attendance exceeded 80,000.
