@NFLLiveOnESPN: Today's show - Trent Dilfer and Merril Hoge debate the NFL’s most IMPRESSIVE 3-0 start

Saints: Wins over Lions (1-2), Eagles (2-1) and Bills (1-2)

Giants: Wins over Redskins (1-2), Cowboys (1-1) and Bucs (0-3)

Vikings: Wins over Browns (0-3), Lions (1-2) and 49ers (2-1)

Jets: Wins over Texans (1-2), Patriots (2-1) and Titans (0-3)

Ravens: Wins over Chiefs (0-3), Chargers (2-1) and Browns (0-3)

Colts: Wins over Jaguars (1-2), Dolphins (0-3) and Cardinals (1-2)

Broncos: Wins over Bengals (2-1), Browns (0-3) and Raiders (1-2)

Opponents Combined Record:

It's a shame, because Saints vs Jets should be the media darling this week, but you know it won't be with Favre vs Packers Mania.

How many of there 3 wins is home / away games. That should mean a lot that we took it to Philly and Buffalo at there house. The Ralph is not a friendly environment for opposing teams. I'm very proud of how well we did against them.

If I'm not wearing my homer glasses I say the Jets because they are doing it with a rookie QB and nothing in the passing game worth speaking of. They are really manufacturing wins where as the other 3-0 teams have superior talent with the exception of the Broncos.

From a strength of opponents and margin of victory obviously it's us.

And Atlanta's opponents are combined for 2-7. I know Atlanta isn't 3-0 but I just wanted to throw that out there.:ezbill:

Saints are a 6.5 point favorite in vegas against the Jets this week. So I know they've taken notice.

fwiw, they've taken notice that the Saints are flashy offensively and flashy offenses always attract the dumb money. It drives me crazy when people treat handicappers as knowing a lot about football. What they know is how to separate people from their cash.

I hate to say it but look at the schedule the Jets have had. Too bad their luck is running out this week!

I think we have to note that there is a difference in the statements "Most Impressive 3-0 Start" and "Best 3-0 Team". I'll take Jets as most impressive 3-0 start and Saints as Best 3-0 Team.

Isn't it strange the gamblers seem to be ahead of the curve and the media is sagging behind?

Again, in aggregate, gamblers are *never* ahead of the curve. By definition, for a gaming establishment to stay in business and make money gamblers can never establish an advantage.
