    Cowboys over Colts.

    Cowboys added Aldon Smith and their pass rush looks like it will be utterly impossible to stop. They will run over the NFL this year.

    Colts went 7-9 last year and added Rivers, rookie RB Johnathan Taylor, and traded for a premiere pass rusher in DeForest Buckner to pair with a group that was already looking strong in pass rush.

    Both look like typical super bowl teams that run at will and bury the opposing QB under a pile of DEs and LBs.

    Playoffs, Seeded:

    NFC:
    1. Packers
    2. Saints
    3. Seahawks
    4. Cowboys
    5. 49ers
    6. Vikings
    7. Falcons

    IDK, I think the North is Green Bay's to lose. Only possible competition is the Vikings, who I picked to barely squeak in with the new 7th seed. Saints are only 2nd because Falcons, Carolina, Bucs all just got slightly better, with the Bucs making the biggest leap.

    AFC:
    1.Chiefs
    2. Bills
    3. Ravens
    4. Texans
    5. Steelers
    6. Patriots
    7. San Diego

    Bottom of this list, who knows. I can see the Patriots, San Diego, Raiders, Browns, Titans all fighting for that spot. But I can't believe Derrick Henry is just gonna carry that Titans team all over again.


    Playoff Picks:

    Wild Card:
    Saints over Falcons
    Seahawks over Vikings
    49ers over Cowboys

    Bills over Chargers
    Ravens over Patriots
    Texans over Steelers

    Divisional:
    Green Bay over 49ers (but close)
    Seahawks over Saints on the road

    Chiefs over Texans
    Bills over Ravens, just because of the home field (hopefully they let us be there)

    Conference:
    Seahawks over Green Bay
    Chiefs over Bills

    SB55:
    Chiefs over Seahawks, can't see Mahomes losing to Russ.



    Teams firing their Coach:

    Jets
    Bears
    Lions (Patricia doin nothin' for the Bill Bellicheck tree)


    Bold Prediction:


    Dolphins have a chance to finish 2nd in the AFC East.

    Bold to pick the team that did nothing to help their best player.

    This season feels surreal to me. I'm still in disbelief it's happening. Is it another sequestered dome situation or is it going get postponed by week 6?

    Did I miss them trading for Rodgers or something?
    Legion made WoD's mistakes into traditions. It is my belief when all is said and done we will regard Legion as the beginning of the end.

    If the titans can pick from where they left off in the playoffs I can see it, plus weak division with a hobbled Texans team that traded its third best player.

    I mean, thats more likely than the Packers getting the #1 seed in the NFC.

    I think the Bills have a better chance than the Titans of being the #1 seed in the AFC, and I think the Bills have a barely non-zero chance of that happening.

    I think the Patriots are a better 2nd team in Division then Colts still. And Dolphins seem on the rise. So Bills only get the Jets freebie. Titans get 4 games of the Jags who are 100% tanking and a Bill O'Brian led team. Plus I just think we are going to see teams winning divisions and high seeds with lower records then other years.

    I've said this over and over again: Bill O'Brien is an awful coach...........but Deshaun Watson is a generational talent.

    So far, Watson has been able to carry that Texans team to 2 straight division titles, in spite of Bill O' Brien.

    Based on attendance? In a stadium where no fans are allowed?
    /s

    The Titans relied on Derek Henry doing something for more than a couple games for the first time in his career and Tannehill to win games last year. Expecting both of those to happen again is pretty wishful thinking.

    There are much worse coaches than him, but the combination of his coaching and GM ability is the issue.

    Courtland Sutton just went down with apparent shoulder injury. Going in to locker room with trainers. #9sports

    RIP Broncos. RIP my bet with NG, now the Raiders might get a few more wins.

    Its fine, Elway picked a WR in the first 2 rounds and Jake Butt is somehow the healthy TE.

    Going to ignore Hamler has been dealing with a hamstring injury.

    The Chargers can take their injury luck back too, I don't like it.
