Fool's Gold revisited: The 2011 Season after eight (or so) games.

I have been planning on revisiting this fanpost since the start of the 2011 season.  It was partially the community's idea so consider the following a Snap Judgement Review of the season at the halfway point.  For the record, I missed badly on 14 of the 32 teams which is a pretty good record.  Again, I tried to put each team in the best possible light.

New Orleans Saints: Clearly not a season of close losses, but in the thick of the NFC South race.

Green Bay Packers: Better Season? Try 8-0 on for size.

Philadelphia Eagles: Close to being out of the NFC East Race.

St. Louis Rams: Pretty much correct

Buffalo Bills: Yes the Bills are back and they will be on the warpath following last week's loss.

Kansas City Chiefs: 0-16 is in the team's future, but not this season because they can back into the playoffs with a division win.

Atlanta Falcons: Falcons are not only in the thick of the NFC South race, but also beat Detroit at home.

Chicago Bears: They have a good record, but are good enough for only third in a great Division.

Detroit Lions: It might not be their best season since 1991, but they will make the playoffs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: This "cooked" team is struggling, but in the thick of the playoff chase.

Tennessee Titans: They are having a tough season, but they are building for the future.

Jacksonville Jaguars: Jags could slide into the playoffs as a wild card.

Cincinnati Bengals: Andy Dalton is the answer, but Cincinnati could qualify for the playoffs as a Wild Card.

Cleveland Browns: Tough Showing right now, but the result could be worse.

Pittsburgh Steelers: The team has been all over the place winning and losing, not good in a tough conference.

Baltimore Ravens: Ravens might be king of the Steelers, but need to face Cincinnati for the first time.

Indianapolis Colts: Still locked on Andrew Luck.

Houston Texans: What will happen first: Jerry Jones Hires a new GM or Wade Phillips wins the Super Bowl as Texans defensive coach?

New York Giants: True they have had major injuries, but they also rode a easy schedule, and win over New England.  Yet to face Dallas.

Washington Redskins: No Super Bowl Championship for Rex Grossman or Washington.

Minnesota Vikings: Have a long year, but could upset the Packers at Lambeau this Sunday.

San Diego Chargers: The Charge has gone out of Norv Turner's Chargers.

Carolina Panthers: Yes the future is Cam Newton, but they also need defense and a offensive line.

Arizona Cardinals: The red birds wish they have drafted Christian Ponder.

San Francisco 49ers: Best 49ers team in a decade might be good enough for a second seed only.

Dallas Cowboys: Tony Romo has settled down, but it is Rob Ryan's defense that worries me, however the Cowboys face a easy rest of November following Sunday's showdown vs Buffalo.

New York Jets: In a crowded AFC, the Jets might not make it to the playoffs, and Rex Ryan might be close to done.

New England Patriots: Worst defense in the league and offense is not that good either.

Miami Dolphins: Which is worse, Kansas City losing to Miami or Miami losing Andrew Luck?

Oakland Raiders: Could be a year away from winning the big one.  Injuries have hurt as of late including a collarbone injury to Jason Campbell.

Denver Broncos: We may be having a long season, but Tim Tebow might be the answer at quarterback.
