    So any predictions for the new season? I like the Chargers to win it all.

    Philip Rivers is an elite QB, Ryan Mathews could be a Rookie of the Year contender, Darren Sproles is a great change of pace back, Antonio Gates, Mal Floyd, Patrick Crayton and Vincent Jackson is a terrific receiving corps and the O-Line is always among the leagues best. Add in Ron Rivera as one of the game's best defensive minds in coaching a strong 3-4 D and this is a stacked team approaching their prime.

    I think the Chargers will beat Aaron Rodgers' Packers in the Super Bowl.

    I watched a couple of preseason games,
    I've only just got into NFL over the summer, so don't really know a lot of it, been playing Madden 11 as the Chargers so tthink i'll follow them
    I'm interested in seeing how Tim Tebow does at the Broncos, there was such a massive hype about him, will be interesting to see if he can bring his A game to the pro league from college

    Tebow has the hype and I think he will live up to it. He was a good college player mind but that sometimes has no bearings on their NFL career.

    Chargers will be interesting this season. Vincent Jackson is on a contract holdout with them and has been refused to be traded at his own wish.

    My support is firmly behind the 49ers this year. I know they haven't posted a winning season since 2002 but sure that's half the fun. Anyway, Frank Gore is pretty much guarenteed to get over 1000 rushing yards which is a help to any team.

    Is this an exhibition or an actual match? If a match, isn't it a bit harsh on the team that lose a home game that season?

    Its an actual match like the two before them ... the Giants vs. Dolphins was an exhibition match.

    Saints came here two years ago and won the Superbowl, like the Giants did. It has been linked although not in the same season, tend to be the season after it has the effect.

    Teams actually enjoy playing over here because of the different atmosphere but also its another stadium to play in. Although if it rains again then it will be a poor game to watch. Id expect the 49ers to win it after the Broncos hiding of a defeat last Sunday ... but you never know in the NFL.

    Not saying anything bad about the game itself, think it's a great event
    Just that home advantage sometimes has a part to play in matches, and i bet the home fans get a bit miffed :p

    In previous years the clubs have put on cheap travel packages for the fans and chartered their own flights across!

    It's not that popular in Belgium but the main Franchises that get some attention are: Saints, Raiders, Vikings, Packers, Patriots and Indians.

    I support the Raiders and that's it.

    I get it, its rugby but far too complicated rules for anybodys liking, players wrapped up & bandaged BEFORE they play, spectators have to play spot the ball, offensive & defensive players tend to be the other team standing on the touch line looking concerned , it'll never catch on here , hopefully .

    No, I do not want a NFL shirt for Xmas .

    I thankyou .

    I've actually seen a few games of CFL (Canadian Football, which is similar) since i've been here in Canada, and while I can't get as enthusiastic about it as Rugby, I did find it entertaining and relatively easy to pick the rules up ... it does help that there's so many breaks, so I was able to ask my companions "what was that for" or "what happened there" ...i struggle to do that when explaining the rules to someone who's never seen a rugby game before, as the play has moved on while i'm still explaining :D

    Anyone got predictions for the Superbowl this year? I'm liking the Pats if they get over the Jets... Brady looks to be in good form - doesn't need Moss to win!
