Week One - 2019
« on: September 05, 2019, 12:38:37 AM »

Seems like yesterday the playoffs loss to the Saints happened. Time flies and here we are again.

Curious to see how Rodgers and the new HC get along. The Packers still didnít add much for Rodgers to work with offensively. And this trend of teams looking for the next McVay is annoying. I think the Bears take a step back.

May as well use this one for predictions too.

AFC EAST
1. Patriots
2. Bills
3. Jets
4. Dolphins

I actually think this division will be more competitive than we are used to seeing. I like what Buffalo and the Jets have done so far. The Fins are in full blown tank mode and I sorta hope it blows up in their faces.

AFC NORTH
1. Steelers
2. Browns
3. Ravens
4. Bengals

Iím sick of hearing about the Browns. You wanna crown their asses?! Crown them! Mayfield and OBJ havenít shut up long enough to breathe. Pittsburgh getting rid of the Bell and Brown side shows helps them actually. I think Juju has a great season. Theyíll need Washington and Moncrief to step up though if they want to win the division. Iím not sold on Lamar Jackson and the concept of the forward pass. Cincy will be picking a QB high in April. If they can land Tua that would be fun to watch.

AFC SOUTH
1. Texans
2. Colts
3. Jaguars
4. Titans

Houston, internally, is a dumpster fire. No GM and Bill OB isnít very good. But Watson and Hopkins are very good. I donít think they run away with the division though. I see this one going down to the wire between the top three teams. I like Reich and think heís going to have Brissett in a good position to succeed. We know that Foles usually struggles when heís the guy. Foles Magic doesnít come into play until crunch time. Tennessee faces a crossroads with Mariota. If he canít do much again this year do they move on? Does Vrabel yank him for Tannehill this season?

AFC WEST
1. Chiefs
2. Chargers
3. Raiders
4. Broncos

I wish the Chargers couldíve kept their momentum from this past season but I donít see them doing it. Iíve always liked Rivers. The Chiefs are loaded offensively as we all know. Their defense has to improve because it canít be worse right? But if it doesnít improve itíll be another pre-SB exit for Big Red. I like some of what Oakland has done but Grudenís system is archaic. Although he may eschew his true YAC based WCO for deeper stuff simply because of Brown and Williams and their deep ball abilities. Not a fan of the Broncos QB depth chart. Their defense should be pretty good though.

AFC PLAYOFFS
1. Steelers
2. Chiefs
3. Patriots
4. Texans
5. Chargers
6. Colts

I almost wanted to put the Bills in one of the WC spots.

Colts knock off the Patriots
Texans take down the Chargers

Steelers will beat the Colts
Chiefs will eek out a win against the Texans in a shootout

A tough call in the AFCCG but I think the Chiefs squeak by the Steelers.

NFC EAST
1. Eagles
2. Cowboys
3. Giants
4. Washington

I hope Dallas shteins all over themselves. The only interesting things about the Giants and Washington is how long Eli and Keenum stay as starters.

NFC NORTH
1. Vikings
2. Bears
3. Packers
4. Lions

This could be the division where every team is in it until the final month. The Lions have a running game with Johnson. Rodgers pulls his super man act and makes miracles despite not having great skill position supporting cast. The Bears regress a bit and the Vikings end up being the tallest midget in this circus despite Cousins throwing awful INTs.

NFC SOUTH
1. Saints
2. Falcons
3. Panthers
4. Bucs

I think Arians has the Bucs on the up and up and next year theyíll be tougher. Can Newton stay healthy and overcome having Rivera as the HC still? Can Atlanta overcome having Dan Quinnís clueless ass still in charge? Iím about sick of the Saints so I wish someone would bury those fools. But theyíll end up on top again.

NFC WEST
1. Seahawks
2. Rams
3. 49ers
4. Cardinals

Iíll probably get burned here picking Seattle mainly because their OC is trash. But I think the Rams fall back to earth a bit and have a SB hangover. I think the Niners will play well and could surprise and challenge for second place and a WC spot. Iím not a Kyler Murray fan and hiring Kingsbury was horrific.

NFC PLAYOFFS
1. Eagles
2. Saints
3. Vikings
4. Seahawks
5. Rams
6. Bears

WC Weekend is anticlimactic because we see divisional matchups again. But Chicago goes into Minny and beats them and Seattle manages to hold off the Rams.

The Eagles and Bears rematch from last year has a lot of people taking Chicago as revenge for the double doink but Nagy and the Bears come into The Linc shook and get smoked. The Saints handle the Seahawks.

And then we have our own rematch angle when the Saints come into The Linc. This time Alshon doesnít butterfinger the season away.

SUPER BOWL

Storyline central here. All of the Philly and KC angles get pounded for the two weeks leading up to the game. Wentz feels pressure to live up to BDN. Mahomes and that receiving corps vs Schwartz and his stupid sticks defense. Big Red goes home without a ring again though.

OTHER PREDICTIONS

NFL MVP - Carson Wentz
Offensive Player Of The Year - Patrick Mahomes
Defensive Player Of The Year - Aaron Donald
Offensive Rookie Of The Year - Josh Jacobs
Defensive Rookie Of The Year - Devin Bush (Ed Oliver a close 2nd)
Coach Of The Year - Doug Pederson
First Coach Fired - Jay Gruden

If the Colts make the playoffs without Luck as you say, I think it's safe to pencil in Reich for coach of the year. Also, if the Browns have any kind of breakthrough year at all, Kitchens will be a strong contender among NFL media types too, whether he is truly responsible or not.

I think Doug would have to go 15-1 or overcome another Wentz injury to get real consideration, because the roster is considered one of the best in the NFL and double digit wins are a default expectation of many national NFL guys.

It's always been a silly award because it should just be given to BB every year. He's the GOAT and operates on a different plane than all these other guys.

I literally can not remember the Eagles-Saints playoff game for the life of me.

Nothing happened after the first two Eagles drives, and the season was mysteriously cancelled.

AFCE - jets are winning this....darnold is getting swallowed up by the baker hype machine but hes gonna have a big breakout year and brady is just about done....this is a good time to remind everyone that nick foles is the last qb to throw a td in the superbowl

AFCN - browns and ravens will battle this out with a slight edge to the ravens...ben sucks and is going to throw for 20 int's

AFCS - who cares....this is the least interesting division in all of sports and always will be

AFCW - im almost positive mahomes is going to have a season ending non contact injury the question is in what week does it happen..think the raiders could be sneaky good...like a lock to be over their vegas season win total

NFCE - this is finally dallas' year to at least make the conference champ....their defense is really really good...jaylon smith is a farging animal and i cant believe how good their 2016 draft was...washingtons d line is much better than their wr's are bad..that unit is sick

NFCN - bears easily win the best uniform division in the nfl

NFCS - this division isnt quite as unwatchable As the AFCS but no matter how good any of the teams are if they are playing each other its pretty much like trying to watch a san jose sharks game...if brees isnt done being elite they are on the super short list of superbowl contenders and probably my favorite

NFCW - rams obviously running away with this...but the true lock of the year in this division is seattle handing the eagles a soul crushing defeat at the linc on sunday night football

NFC - saints over dallas - this is a coin flip game but i think the saints will be at home
AFC - louisville slugger nick over jets

SB - saints over jags

In general people overrate the importance of QB and that leads them to underrate the Ravens, Raiders, Colts, Jags, Bills, Bears, etc. This is mostly an AFC phenomenon since there are more big name QBs in the NFC.

How many times do we need to see a Blake Bortles or Case Keenum go deep into the playoffs before people realize this is a team sport? Meanwhile people pencil in the Packers as a contender and I'm not even 100% positive that Rodgers himself is still good. They won 6 games last year and Rodgers started all 16 of them.

I'm not counting the Patriots out until Brady dies or goes to prison for kissing his son on the mouth. Even then, they'll still find somebody to play QB well enough to get them into the playoffs.

Belichick rubs one out to this fantasy every night. Thereís no way he retires before Brady.

AB is getting suspended for mouthing off to Mayock. Sounds like thatís going great.

The Browns faithful has so much money on the team this year. Their team has been in the toilet for so long that they assume that a near-.500 finish is one step away from hoisting the Lombardi. Anything positive for the Browns is a hard stay-away.

Yup Iím actually looking forward to seeing the lines for their early games since I think people are going to hammer them.  Value could be had against them.

Both offenses look like shtein. Generally a thing for them to be a few weeks behind the defenses but itís worse now bc no one gets any reps in PS.
