Quotes from NFL GameDay Analysts:

Surprise teams in 2008:

"My surprise team this year is the Buffalo Bills. If they can stay healthy at the linebacker position they're definitely going to be a threat. They can pressure the quarterback to make up for some of the inexperience that they have in the secondary. Offensively, with their receivers and running backs and the line, which is the biggest in the league, I expect them to make some noise in the AFC East."
-- Marshall Faulk of NFL GameDay Morning

"The team that may surprise me is the Chargers. In the past, they always got to the playoffs and lost. It may be a surprise if they actually go all the way this year and I think they could."
-- Deion Sanders of NFL GameDay Final

"Detroit, because the division is not strong like the others. There are a lot of young quarterbacks in that division –- Tarvaris Jackson, Kyle Orton in Chicago and Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay -– they only have 32 starts at QB combined. Jon Kitna is the best quarterback in that division and they have the best receivers in that division."
-- Steve Mariucci of NFL GameDay Final

Who will have a breakout season in 2008?:

"I'm looking for (Chargers WR) Vincent Jackson to step up. This guy has all the tools: 6-4, 220 pounds and should have a monster season."
-- Marshall Faulk of NFL GameDay Morning

"Justin Tuck is hands down the Giants' best pass rusher right now. With him playing in Strahan's spot on the left side, he's going to have to eat his Wheaties and get nice and strong because most teams are right-handed and have some big boys on the that side."
-- Warren Sapp of NFL GameDay Final

"Chad Pennington will have a good year. He's a guy that took the Jets to the Playoffs three times and he's going to make Miami considerably better. He will have an impact on that team."
-- Steve Mariucci of NFL GameDay Final

What to watch:

"Everybody watches the pretty people, but the real game is played down in the trenches."
-- Warren Sapp of NFL GameDay Morning

"A record seven quarterbacks passed for over 4,000 yards last year and I think two more QBs should join that club this year. The trend is going to be cornerbacks and secondaries getting eaten alive. Something has to be done defensively to stop this."
-- Deion Sanders of NFL GameDay Final

Biggest obstacles for the Giants to repeat:

"The distraction of winning the Super Bowl is their biggest obstacle. There are about 10 guys on the team with book deals and you're living in New York, so you're going to get more media attention."
-- Marshall Faulk of NFL GameDay Morning

"The game will dictate it. That's always the constant in the NFL. You either have something going or you don't. You get seven points-or-less games all the time because people make adjustments and the game has different matchups. Some matchups you can take advantage of and some you can't."
-- Warren Sapp of NFL GameDay Morning

"It's the production of the defensive line. The pass rush was the best thing they had last year and they won't get it again. It would be hard to duplicate it even if Osi (Umenyiora) and Michael (Strahan) were both back."
-- Steve Mariucci of NFL GameDay Final

Who will be AFC Champion?:

"I'm going with the San Diego Chargers. They have something to prove. There's a chip on their shoulder."
-- Marshall Faulk of NFL GameDay Morning

Who will be NFC Champion?:

"I like Dallas. They present a problem for a lot of teams. They also have unfinished business from last year the way that it ended. I think Jason Garrett, who was a first time (NFL) offensive coordinator last year, has to answer some questions and get over the hump as well."
-- Marshall Faulk of NFL GameDay Morning

"It should be the Cowboys, but then again, they haven't won a playoff game since 1996. If the Packers still had Favre, they would be the team to beat. It's Philly or the Cowboys."
-- Steve Mariucci of NFL GameDay Final
