Default bold predictions

One (at least moderately) bold prediction for each division:

1] The Bengals will finish under .500.

2] The Jaguars will win the AFC South.

3] The Patriots will start the season so shaky that they barely make the playoffs.

4] Denver will finish under .500 and third in the AFC West.

5] Green Bay will finish last in the NFC North.

6] Either Jake Delhomme will play well, and Carolina will win its division, or Delhomme will play poorly and be benched for David Carr by Thanksgiving.

7] Philadelphia will win the NFC East in a runaway. Unless Donovan McNabb gets hurt early in the season, in which case Philly misses the postseason altogether and Dallas wins the division.

8] Shaun Alexander averages under 4 yards per carry, and the Seahawks win the NFC West anyway. Everyone's talking about a changing of the guard, but Seattle hangs on for another season.

AFC Division winners: Pittsburgh, Jacksonville, New England, San Diego
AFC Wild Cards: Indianapolis, Jets
NFC Division winners: Chicago, Carolina, Philadelphia, Seattle
NFC Wild Cards: New Orleans, Dallas

AFC Playoffs

STEELERS over Jets, PATRIOTS over Colts

Super Bowl

The NFC is hopelessly outclassed again this year.
Chargers over Panthers
Congratulations, Norv.

I know some of these predictions seem more likely than others, but if picking Norv Turner to win a Super Bowl doesn't qualify as bold, I don't know what does. :lol:

My backup Super Bowl picks -- I know picking backups is not bold, but my choices will be -- are Pittsburgh and Jacksonville, teams a lot of people don't even expect to make the playoffs. Followed, I guess, by the Pats and Colts, but everyone is picking them. I'll put the Eagles sixth in line, and stop before I get to a quarter of the league.

Seriously, though, take it to -- well, maybe not the bank, but at least show off to your friends and tell them you called it before the season:

* The Bengals will be mediocre-to-bad.
* The Colts have lost too many people, and the Jags have a great defense and tons of young talent. The Leftwich thing threw me, too, but I still think they'll do it.
* The Jets and Bills will give New England a serious run for its money.
* Denver is not a contender. Look for problems on defense, in particular.
* Green Bay is not a contender. Neither is anyone else in the NFC North.
* The Saints cannot repeat last year's success. If they win the division, it's only because the NFC South is terrible.
* Dallas, Washington, and the Giants are not ready to contend. The NFC East is Philly's for the taking.
* The Cardinals and Niners are a year away.
* San Diego has too much talent not to succeed, regardless of the coaching staff.
* Watch out for Pittsburgh, especially late in the season.
