Before the season, I sent my NFL season predictions to brother Steve. I will share them with you here. You will notice some great Nostradamus-like predictions and some serious crack-induced predictions. For the record, I had San Diego vs. Dallas in the Super Bowl.
NFC North: Detroit 11-5, GB 10-6, CHI 7-9, MN 5-11
NFC West: AZ 11-5, STL, 10-6, SF 8-8, SEA 7-9
NFC South: NO 12-4, TB 9-7, CAR 7-9, ATL 6-10
NFC East: DAL 10-6, WASH 10-6, PHI 7-9, NYG 6-10
AFC North: BALT 12-4, CLEVE 9-7, PITT, 6-10, CINCY 5-11
AFC West: DEN 12-4, SD 10-6, OAK, 7-9, KC 6-10
AFC South: INDY 12-4, HOU 9-7, TENN 6-10, JAX 5-11
AFC East: NYJ 11-5, NE 10-6, MIA 8-8, BUFF 6-10
I tend to want to just remember the picks that were close to being accurate: GB good, NFC North decent overall, Chicago crappy, TB good, Wash good, Dal good, Phil mediocre, Car mediocre, Cleve good, Cincy bad, Indy, good and Hou not bad. However, I can’t ignore the horrendous picks I had either: StL being good, NO being great, NYG being well below .500, Sea being sub-par, Balt being great, Pitt being bad, Den winning division, Jax and Tenn stinking and perhaps the worst division of picks, NYJ being 11-5 and Miami being 8-8.
This was fun and next year, we will post all of our pre-season NFL picks on packergeeks.com so that we can be held fully accountable for the predictions we make.
