What are your picks for this year?

Postby starley657 » Sun Sep 11, 2005 1:13 pm

Here are my picks for this year:
AFC East - Patriots
AFC North - Ravens
AFC South - Colts
AFC West - Chargers
AFC WC - Jets
AFC WC - Raiders

NFC East - Eagles
NFC North - Vikings
NFC South - Falcons
NFC West - Cardinals
NFC WC - Panthers
NFC WC - Packers (Don't ever count out Favre!)

AFC Champ - Colts
NFC Champ - Falcons

SB Champ - As much as I would love to say Falcons, I think we are a year or so away. I think Peyton will be too much on our DBs and I think the Colts win it all.

On a side note, to me the best teams in the league are the Colts, Patriots, Eagles and Falcons. I think they are the cream of the crop with the Panthers up there too if they stay healthy. As for the WC teams, those were tough to pick. I think you'll see it come down to the last game to decide those. What do you think?

My picks, haven't changed much in the past month:

AFC East - Patriots
AFC North - Steelers
AFC South - Colts
AFC WEst - Chiefs
WC - Ravens
WC - Chargers

NFC East - Eagles
NFC North - Vikings
NFC South - Panthers/Falcons
NFC West - Rams
WC - Cowboys
WC - Panthers/Falcons

SB - Colts vs. Panthers/Falcons

I really believe whichever team wins our division will go onto the Super Bowl. If it's the Panthers, I think they will beat the Colts. If it's us, sadly I think we will lose.

The Pats IMO are still the team to beat in the AFC and the NFL, but it's just hard for me to pick them since it's hard for me to imagine a team winning 3 in a row. But if any team can do it, it will be the Pats.

Well after seeing today's games, I would take off the Packers and add the Lions. Yes after seeing them today, I think they're offense could be lethal. I like the young guns they have and who knows what they can do. As for the AFC, the Steelers showed me a lot today. I thought losing their top two RBs and not having a strong WR corp like in the past, I figured they wouldn't be great to start out the year which would hurt them. Umm...I was wrong. Big Ben had once again another great game. As for the NFC West, I see I am the only person picking the Cards. Watch out for them. They're ready to break out this year. Denny Green has them ready to go and I like their new RB this year. They are definitely heading in the right direction.

No matter what I still say the Colts and Falcons will be in the SB with the Colts winning it all. I do hope the Falcons can pull it together though. I just think our DBs need work. I don't think you will run on us this year, but maybe throw on us if it's away from D-Hall.

Oh well, just my opinion of course. Go Falcons!!!

AFC East - Patriots
AFC North - Steelers
AFC South - Colts
AFC West - Chiefs
AFC WC - Bills
AFC WC - Chargers

NFC East - Cowboys
NFC North - Vikings
NFC South - Falcons
NFC West - St. Louis
NFC WC - Panthers
NFC WC - Iggles

AFC Conference Championship
Colts vs. Patriots - Winner: Colts (If in the RCA Dome, otherwise Patties)

NFC Conference Championship
Falcons vs. Iggles - Winner: Falcons

SB - Colts over Falcons in likely a route due to our below average secondary and so/so coverage linebackers.

I do think losing Simon and the cancer known as Terrell Owens will be enough to distract this team from getting the job done. I also believe that the Eagles start off 2-2. Cowboys are my darkhorse this year especially with a great overall defense. I was waiting to see what Bledsoe, Keyshawn, and Jones did and it was what I expected. Just like all other previous Parcells offense's they are efficient and consistent.
