Re: My NFL Predictions (2011)
Teams I am buying:
Chargers, Pats, Packers, Saints, Steelers, Texans, and Falcons
-These are the teams I think have a legit chance of winning it this season. The Texans are a perennial disappointment but I really like their chances in a down division and no Payton. I may move the Pats into the next category down but I was down on them once and they ripped off 18 straight wins.
Teams I am selling high on:
Ravens, Jets, Bears, and Eagles
-Once upon a time the Falcons decided to trade Matt Schaub and head down the Michael Vick course. It was an utter disaster that wrecked a franchise. I don't think Vick plays 16 games in any season. I would never have signed him to a $100M deal and I would have traded him at the ultimate high point. I don't particularly care for Sanchez or Flacco. Jay Cutler isn't a leader and has a lot to prove this season. That said these teams could make the playoffs.
Teams I am speculating on:
Lions, Bucs, Cardinals, and Rams
-The Lions bloodied every team they played in the preseason. The Bucs have an exciting young team. And the Cards and Rams play in an awful division where 8-8 or 9-7 are good enough to win.
Teams I just don't like:
Cowboys and Giants
-They can make the playoffs, one probably will but I despise Eli and think the Cowboys could be a 3 ring circus this season.
As for the other teams I don't see much happening. Payton may return early and lead the Colts to an 8-8 record. The Chiefs may show they aren't as big as a surprise as we thought and go 8-8. But other than that I don't see a lot of over .500 teams from the rest of the league.
