You guys can stay vanilla and continue to be immature. I'll be bold.
Cutler gets injured for the season, Caleb Haney takes the bears to the promised land.
Mine kind of surprised me (since I made a chart and went down the schedule marking W/L for each team pending on who I thought would win the game):
WC: NYJ, BAL
WC: NO, CHI
NYJ@TEN - NYJ
BAL@SD - SD
CHI@PHI - PHI
NO@ARI - NO
BAL@PIT - PIT
SD@NE - NE
NO@ATL - ATL
PHI@GB - GB
NE@PIT - PIT
GB@ATL - ATL
PIT v. ATL - ATL
I think IND is going to have a crummy year. I think Peyton is on the decline and without him they are absolutely nothing.
I also felt like a lot of teams are going to be going through the rebuilding process so I wound up with a huge gap of wins between winning teams and losing teams.
Also, Cleveland's schedule isn't that bad, and I figure PIT will have their seed locked up by Week 17, so they just throw away game 17. CLE still doesn't make the playoffs though, but I do think they've improved enough and their schedule is weak enough to have a solid season.
I'm just letting you know that it is impossible for a division to have two 14-2 teams along with a 12-4. In that scenario the Bucs would have to go undefeated outside their division.
Well, it's not literally impossible, but it's not going to happen. I'll leave it at that.
Overall, you have waaaaayyyy to many 14-2 teams. I can't remember the last time we had more than one 14-2 team in a season... And you've predicted 6! No chance.
Also, those playoff matches are incorrect due to improper seeding. If we are
the 4 seed we would play the 5 seed which, in your scenario, would be the Jets, not the Ravens.
Sorry for the critique, but you have way too many elite teams and way too many scrub teams.
However, your conference championship games are very feasible though I do not understand this ATL hype. What the Packers did to them in the playoffs was not a one time thing.
Alright, I fixed the seeding issue.
In so far as the season, like I said, I just looked at all the games, made a guess at who would win, and tallied up my results afterwards. Due to the lockout and the abnormal amount of teams trying to get back on their feet, I think the elite teams from last year will be even more so this year (in comparison).
Also, I'm not sure if I had TB go undefeated outside their conference or not. I think I had them losing to Green Bay, but beating SF, DET, MIN, TEN, HOU, IND, JAC, DAL, and CHI. I don't think that's too unreasonable. Then they obviously sweep CAR, and then steal one from ATL or NO, don't remember which.
I appreciate what the Bucs did last year, but they had an easy schedule (kind of similar to what ours is like this year).
They played several very good teams (Faclons twice, Saints twice, Ravens, Steelers), but they only won one of those games (against the Saints who weren't trying). I remember them being 1-6, overall, against winning teams.
They'll have a tougher schedule this season and have to face more winning teams. I don't see any higher than 9-7.
I agree with every thing you said but I don't think we have an easy schedule this year.
2. Jets (WC)
2. Ravens (WC)
2. Cowboys (WC)
2. Saints (WC)
AFC Champion: Chargers
NFC Champion: Falcons
Super Bowl Champion: Falcons
- Even though I have the Jets 2nd I think they're very overrated. Yes they have a very good defense but the key to beating them is pressuring Sanchez. He doesn't have the speed at WR position to lean on this year, instead, he has two older WR's who can't beat the press. I expect their offense to take a fall.
- Going all in on the Falcons. Matt Ryan is a top QB, Turner has a couple years left, OL is pretty good, and plenty of weapons to catch the ball. Now to the defense, I think they step up this year and last year's playoff game against the Packers was a fluke.
- The AFC South is going to be crazy this year. You can make a good case for the top 3 teams to win the division. I don't think we're going to see the usual Manning this year and no way can the Colts compete without him. Even though it's a stretch to think the Texans can have a better defense this year they still have a great offense. The Titans are going to shock some people this year, this D will be better than most think and our offense runs through CJ and that big time OL.
- Cam Newton will not play well, Tebow starts at least 2 games, Bucs struggle, Lions won't live up to the hype, Rivers MVP.
I don't either... I was comparing the Bucs schedule last season to our's this season.
We have 6-7 very tough games. The rest are very easy. That's exactly hoe it was for the Bucs... Also similar to our 2007 who took advantage of weaker opponents, but couldn't cash in against the legit ones.
Changed my AFC South predictions and made us the winner, going 9-7.
