  • How were your preseason predictions from last year?

    Its about time for TC + Preseason. As we all make our predictions for the upcoming 07-08 season, i was wondering how peoples predictions for the 06-07 season turned out.

    For example, i remember getting caught up in the hype of the dolphins. I definitely thought they were bound for a deep playoff run. I was way off on that one.

    However, i thought the cardinals would be bad, and i was right on that. I didn't get caught up in that hype machine.

    I also remember some general predictions about how the two worst teams would be the 49ers and bills from this site. Both teams i think were predicted to pick 1+ 2 in the draft here. They just forgot to add a 1 in the beginning of both teams as the niners picked 11 and bills 12. Two teams predicted to be terrible whiched exceeded expectations. (On a side note, i believe these are the top two teams on the rise, in no particular order).

    Did your predictions from last year come true or fizzle out?

    Don't remember much but i do remeber predicting the Redskins having a sub .500 season correctly when everyone in the media was hyping them making a deep playofff run and identifying them as a superbowl contender.

      A friend of mine went through our respective teams schedule during the pre season, and we concluded that the chargers would go 13-3 and the packers would go 9-7..

      i suspect both teams won't be as good as their records were last year.. but i wouldnt be surprised if they were

        I was a little bit off.......

        I believe I said Superbowl Champs would be Carolina, I nailed the AFC Champs though I said Colts would be AFC Champs but I said they would beat Cincinnati in the AFC Championship.

                Mine... (I didn't pick records, just standings)

                AFC division champs
                South - Indy
                North - Pittsburgh
                East - New England
                West - Denver

                Wildcard
                1. Jacksonville
                2. Cincinnati

                ....Not too bad in the AFC, the NFC is where it gets bad.

                Division Champs
                East - Washington
                North - Minnesota (WOW)
                South - Carolina
                West - Seattle

                Wildcard
                1. Tampa Bay
                2. New York Giants

                Notable screw-ups... Saints/Eagles were picked to finish last in their division. I was all but sure the Titans would be the worst team in the league (I was right until VY showed up).

                          Lol.

                          I remember that I didn't buy into the Carolina and Miami hype, but I thought the Raiders would make the playoffs, and I thought the Bills would win the AFC East. I thought the Jaguars would win the AFC South (Colts a wildcard). I did the whole league, but I don't remember much more than the previous.

                            All I remember is predicting big things for the Panthers. I'm sure I made predictions on this board, I just have no idea where I'd find them.

                              Let's laugh at the wrong!
                              • The Baltimore Ravens earn a Top 5 pick and Billick gets the boot to his mind-numbingly annoying ass.
                              • Picked the Washington Redskins to win the NFC East, buying into the hype of Al Saunders (seriously, lol @ me). More over, I picked them to represent the NFC in Miami.
                              • Didn't have the San Diego Chargers as a playoff team.
                              • Both the Carolina Panthers and the Atlanta Falcons get into the playoffs.
                              • The Denver Broncos and Jacksonville Jaguars get back to the playoffs for a consecutive year.
                              • Actually thought the Arizona Cardinals would win the NFC West.

                              But wait, there's some good!
                              • Direct quote: "With a cakewalk schedule, a team of returning starters, and every single other rival dealing with new coaches/regimes/players, da Bears will have the number one seed in the NFC."
                              • Thought the Indianapolis Colts would get to Miami and win SB XLI, albeit against the Redskins (see above). Obviously I picked both the Colts and the England Patriots to win their divisions.
                              • The Seattle Seahawks break the string of Super Bowl losers and get back to the playoffs.
                              • Didn't buy the hype of the Miami Dolphins like so many others (nice SB prediction, Sports Illustrated! What idiots, lol). Said they were at least one year away under Saban.
                              • The Kansas City Chiefs would get back into the playoffs with Herm Edwars aka the RB Killer.
                              • The Tampa Bay Bucs weren't going to make the playoffs, despite winning the division in 2005.
                              • The Buffalo Bills were going to improve for the better by a good deal.

                              If you'll remember, I also put up the sig after SB XL that Peyton Manning and the Colts would win 3 (or was it 2? I'm pretty sure it was 3) Super Bowls in the next 5 years. Obviously, few if any agreed with me at the time and more laughed at the idea. A third of the way there, boys.
