2010 NFL Predictions

Drew Magary says it best in his Week 1 NFL Jamboroo (NSFKids):
         
“I do this every year, because making brutally incorrect predictions never stops being enjoyable. Plus, if one of these predictions stumbles bass ackwards into being correct, then I can totally say I'm way smart for foreseeing it. Like picking the Jaguars to win the AFC South last year. WAS THAT NOT A BOLD AND HEADY CHOICE?!”

At this point in Drew’s column, I stopped reading and quickly jotted down my own predictions.  Of course, I know this isn’t Baseball; we won’t make a habit of talking football over here.  We also know we are a day late to the party and that the Saints beat the Vikings.  However, if you know me at all… If you know how I feel, as a Bears fan that went to college in New Orleans… If you know, at all, how I feel about the Saints, or the Vikings, or Brett Favre… You KNOW I would have picked the Saints.

To reiterate, this is for fun and should not be used for gambling purposes.  I know nothing about football, except what I remember from watching games just about every Sunday since I was 8 years old.  I’ve read basically nothing about the upcoming NFL season, only have 2 fantasy teams, and basically have gotten all my preseason updates from HBO’s Hard Knocks and my partner in one league, whose nickname is “Sucio”.

  1. I may unsubscribe from this blog after you picked the Titans over the Texans. Colts in 3rd place? One could only hope...
