The actual NFL season may have been preceded by an abnormally shortened offseason, but that didn't slow the loud and proud August predictions from many of the league's personalities.
Rex Grossman predicted a division title in Washington, while Vince Young referred to the Eagles as a "Dream Team." Jerry Jones actually said, out loud, that Jason Garrett was going to be the Cowboys' head coach in 2011. And that's just the NFC East.
The rest of the league has seen its fair share of disappointment, as well, with offseason hopes wilting into regular season realities. But just because the playoffs are out of the question doesn't mean these five teams won't be playing for pride the rest of the way.
