2008 NFL Season Preview: From ACL's To MVP's
The great thing about blogging is the worst thing about blogging, most bloggers don't get paid. That means when I say I'm going to preview every conference before the seasons starts and I don't actually do it, my editor can't get mad because I am my editor.
That being said, I promise to return the "Thoughts From My Couch" segment now that the NFL season has finally arrived. Rookie watch, all those wonderful things will be back. And my true bread and butter, the NFL Draft previews, will also get into full swing once again.
For those who missed them I will recap my previous predictions on conferences and give what will now be a full panel of conference predictions complete with playoff seedings and Super Bowl predictions. If you don't like it, I'm a blogger so you have no one to complain to but yourself for looking...but seriously thanks for looking.
Let's get it.
Chargers 13-3 - Despite injuries, this remains a supremely talented and confident team
Broncos 7-9 - Jay Cutler is poised to break out, but the defense remains too slim
Raiders 4-12 - Rookie QB, poor O-Line, no difference maker on the defensive front
Chiefs 4-12 - Without a quarterback or receivers you can't win in this league
New England Patriots 12-4 - Hungry team, but more vulnerable than people think
New York Jets 8-8 - Brett Favre makes this team very very dangerous in the East
Buffalo Bills 7-9 - Look to be an improved team, but the schedule will be tough
Miami Dolphins 1-15 - I hate to do that, but even with Pennington this team is lowsy
Pittsburgh Steelers 10-6 - One of the best teams in the AFC, but the schedule is brutal
Cleveland Browns 10-6 - Trendy pre-season picks worry me, I'll get back to you on this
Cincinnati Bengals 9-7 - I just have a feeling about this one
Baltimore Ravens 4-12 - If Joe Flacco had ANYone to throw to they would be higher
Jacksonville Jaguars 13-3 - Have the goods to bring it all home
Indianapolis Colts 10-6 - Injuries and age are a big concern as this division is better
Houston Texans 9-7 - If the Texans can get some help on D, look out
Tennessee Titans 8-8 - Without more help, VY won't do much better than 8 wins
Seattle Seahawks 13-3 - The best team in the NFC no one is talking about
Arizona Cardinals 8-8 - I don't know how much better they are with Kurt Warner
St. Louis Rams 8-8 - Too much talent on offense to lose that many games
San Francisco 49ers 4-12 - A team with JT O'Sullivan at QB just won't cut it
Dallas Cowboys 11-5 - Playoffs problems will either galvanize or demoralize, we will see
Philadelphia Eagles 10-6 - Extremely dangerous team when healthy and playing together
New York Giants 9-7 - Surprised us last year, I can't see it happening again
Washington Redskins 6-10 - Zorn better hopes Snyder gives him a long leash
Green Bay Packers 10-6 - New quarterback, but similar results for a stacked team
Minnesota Vikings 9-7 - Still can't pass or stop the pass, neither bode well for the Vikes
Chicago Bears 4-12 - The defense is overrated and they have zero offense, it could get ugly
Detroit Lions 4-12 - Sure the offense will score, but the defense won't stop anyone
New Orleans Saints 13-3 - Count me in on the Saints bandwagon this season
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 11-5 - In good shape unless Gruden takes the last month off again
Carolina Panthers 9-7 - This could be Jake Delhomme's last chance, maybe John Fox's too
Atlanta Falcons 1-15 - I love Matt Ryan, but this team is a shambles
