It seems like just yesterday that the Seattle Seahawks were crowned Super Bowl champions after crowning Peyton Manning and the Broncos.

Okay, that was a lie. 

This was actually the longest off-season ever.

But we made it to September, and you know what that means.

The NFL is BACK, baby.

And with it comes the ultimate in optimism for the 32 cities that host an NFL franchise (yes...even you, Jacksonville. You too, Houston), at least for this week.

But enough pointless rambling by me, we've got some games to pick.

For purely entertainment purposes only, of course.

So what do you say you hit the button down there that says "begin slideshow" so we can get started?
