TFD Opinions: Revised NFL Standings Predictions 2011-2012

South: Texans (12), Titans (11)*, Colts (3), Jaguars (2)

TFD Opinions: Republican Presidential Nomination Odds October 5

Change from September 27 in parentheses:

9. Rick Santorum 2% (0)- No change for Santorum of late. He's still probably curious why he's not getting more support given the failure of his competitors.

8. Ron Paul 3% (0)- Nothing new.
