NFL Preview

Season starts tomorrow.  Here are my predictions and a tidbit about each team.

NFC EAST
1. Redskins - RGIII and Alfred Morris in an overrated division
2. Cowboys - Tony Romo has weapons and a sense of urgency this year
3. Giants - not a bad season, probably 8-8, but their defense is awful and no running game
4. Eagles - Chip Kelly will kill Michael Vick by week 4, and then it's the Nick Foles show

NFC NORTH
1. Packers - Rodgers will be discount double checking his way to 11-5
2. Lions (WC) - Yes, I picked the lions here, assuming Suh doesn't kill a man
3. Bears - Is this the season Jay Cutler becomes a star...doubtful
4. Vikings - I love purple jesus, but he won't have more than 1,500 yards this season

NFC SOUTH
1. Saints - Revenge tour for Sean Payton
2. Bucs (WC) - Year 2 of Greg Schiano and Doug Martin, Gholston and Revis help the worst pass defense in the NFL last year.
3. Panthers - Cam Newton has a better season, but he's not even in the top 5 of the mobile/athletic QBs anymore
4. Falcons - disappointing season for a team that is loaded on offense

NFC WEST
1. Seahawks - Best young QB in the NFC, Lynch will be in beast mode, and they don't lose at home.
2. 49ers - Kaepernick was a great story last year.  So was Michael Vick his first year in the league, lets see Colin do it again, this time without any WR. Will have trouble scoring points.
3. Arizona - Bruce Arians can coach QBs, and i'm betting he gets one more good season out of Carson Palmer.
4. Rams - Tough division.  At what point do they give up on Bradtard?  Tavon Austin will be fun to watch.  You know you're in trouble when you WR corps has 2 rookies from WaVa and 2 second year guys from Wake Forest and Appalachian State. And you have a fragile QB, backed up by Kellen Clemens.

Wild Cards come out of the easier divisions.  NFC is loaded this year.

NFC Playoffs
Saints over Lions
Bucs over Skins

Seahawks over Bucs
Saints over Packers

Saints over Seahawks


AFC EAST
1. Patriots - by default, this division is just awful year in and year out, good for 11 wins easy every year.
2. Dolphins - Tannehill takes a step forward.  Defense is a little better.  Just on the outside of the playoff picture, probably 9-7
3. Bills - Rookie head coach, rookie QB, no running game, no defense.  Maybe win 4 games, maybe.
4. JETS - should have picked up Tebow as opposed to Dr. Quinn, would have at least been entertaining.

AFC NORTH
1. Bengals - Marvin Lewis has slowly built a very good defense, and has started to surround Ginger with some really good weapons.  AJ Green is the truth.
2. Steelers (WC) - They were in re-loading/rebuilding mode last year.  They always seem to find guys to replace guys.  Really need Polomalu to stay healthy for 16 games.
3. Browns - Because I hate the Ravens
4. Ravens - I hope Joe Flacco's arm falls off

AFC SOUTH
1. Texans - Will have another solid season, followed by disappointment in the playoffs again.  Matt Schaub is Tony Romo of the AFC.
2. Titans - Division is really weak
3. Colts - Take a step back.  They'll miss Bruce Arians, and don't have the Pagano love story.  Luck will be better, but he doesn't have the weapons around him for another run.
4. Jaguars - Who is the best QB in college football this year? Could Bridgewater be running this offense next year?

AFC WEST
1. Broncos - Even with all the turmoil, should be able to fall out of bed and win 11 games in a weak AFC.
2. Chiefs (WC) - Ravens are probably true WC team, but I hate them.  Old Andy Reid could prove he has one more good run in him.  Alex Smith with something to prove.  This was a team that had 4 pro-bowl players last year and won 3 games.  Awful coached team last year.
3. Chargers - Phyllis Rivers can't stand in the pocket anymore, you get any little bit of pressure on him and he wilts like a flower in Keith's back yard. Oh, and his offensive line is awful.
4. Raiders - Matt Flynn is going to ride those 2 games with the Packers forever, does he ever start another game?  Raiders defense is horrible.  Their offense would be OK if DMC could stay healthy (AHIIK), and Terelle Pryor will ad lib a lot.  He's the black Tebow, can't throw the ball for shit, but he'll run around like a crazy person.


AFC Playoffs:
Texans over Chiefs
Steelers over Bengals

Broncos over Texans
Steelers over Patriots

Broncos over Steelers.

SUPERBOWL
Broncos over Saints

Yes, I went for it.

I only saw decimals in your math problem.

tem said...

decimals are fractions

tem said...

decimal (ˈdɛsɪməl)

— n
1. Also called: decimal fraction a fraction that has a denominator of a power of ten, the power depending on or deciding the decimal place. It is indicated by a decimal point to the left of the numerator, the denominator being omitted. Zeros are inserted between the point and the numerator, if necessary, to obtain the correct decimal place

Good

Sabo-metrics said...

(CNN) -- They struggled to get pregnant for nearly two years. They gave it a go the natural way and then did three or four intrauterine inseminations, where the sperm is washed, concentrated and placed directly into a woman's uterus at an optimal time.
But as mom and dad were both "pushing 40," these methods didn't work, and the couple decided to try in vitro fertilization. With in vitro, or IVF, several eggs are fertilized outside the body; the resulting embryos are then implanted in the woman's womb.
It worked -- on the first try. But the result wasn't exactly what this couple was looking for.
"To say we're excited would be an exaggeration," the dad wrote on Babble.com in an anonymous post that recently started trending on social media. "More truthfully, we're pissed. And terrified, and angry, and guilty, and regretful."
You see, both embryos that were implanted stuck. The wife is pregnant with twins.



What a douche.

tem said...

Maybe he hadn't been preparing to be a dad long enough

The Meiz said...

Somebody should have told him about The Saurin System

Sabo-metrics said...

If that means if you're trying to have a kid, and you are lucky enough to get your wife pregnant, be fucking grateful, then yeah somebody should have taught him. And don't do IVF if you don't want more than one kid because the odds of having more than one are high. Don't say you're pissed and angry and regretful.

The Meiz said...

I'm fairly certain we get that.
