Other notable comments:
Jacksonville Jaguars- The Chargers and Chiefs were both better teams last season. Jaguars will not luck out this season due to their easy division because the AFC South plays the NFC East this season. That will thankfully keep an overrated team out of the playoffs.
Washington Redskins- Will miss the playoffs, two words to sum it up, Mark Brunell.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers- The Bucs are counting heavily on the continued maturation of Chris Simms, but I donít think he is going to progress enough for the Bucs to make the playoffs this year. They still lack a solid receiving game which will lead to many eight man fronts. I only have one more thing to say, Major Applewhite.
Atlanta Falcons- The Falcons are a very difficult team to predict. If Vick misses considerable amount of time the Falcons are doomed. They may be able to last a few games without him. The lack of a real passing game will bog the Falcons down.
New Orleans Saints- Moving in the right direction. Defense needs to improve still, but could contend next year. ............................one year too late on my prediction
Arizona Cardinals- The addition of Edge is big, but unfortunately for the Cardinals he does not play on the offensive line. A bad offensive line and an average at best defense will keep the Cardinals out of the playoffs. My most compelling point though, history. We are at the point, and have been for quite some time, where people just need to accept that this is just the way it is.
I am definitely most proud of my Redskins and Cardinals predictions, because everyone else thought they would be so good, but I just couldn't figure what everyone else was smoking.
I am done arguing, until somebody says something stupid.
