I correctly foresaw the decline of SD and the maturing of KC, but completely whiffed on Den, whom I thought would be a middle-of-the-pack team. Also, I failed to see that Tom Cable might actually be a decent coach for Oak. Al Davis also failed to see this, but in his case after the season was over.
Biggest whiff here was TN, whom I figured would be a playoff contender. I called Hou being disappointing and Jac being decent, but way overestimated Ind. Can you blame me?
I knew Cin would never be good two years in a row. Believe it or not, I said Bal would go 12-4, which they did.
Wow, wrong about a lot here, but nowhere more so than NE, whom I thought was in the twilight of the Brady-Belichick glory years. By the end of September I looked right, and a lot of people agreed with me. Now? Well... maybe next year.
I was right about Sea being mediocre, but I was way off about StL. Also, I picked SF to win the division. I wasn't alone, mind you.
Totally nailed MN here. Quote: "8-8 at best, maybe worse... I don't even think they'll come in second." Of course I was wrong about Chi, whom I always pick to be bad. In my defense, many Bears fans still think that team isn't very good. Also, I called Det just right.
My wrongest pick of the entire preseason was definitely TB: "I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that this team is not only terrible this year, I think they'll be terrible the following year as well." That's even worse than my Car pick. I had the right idea about NO, I was just off by a game.
Right about Dal being a mess, nailed Phi at 10-6, woefully wrong about the Shanahan-McNabb combo in the capital. I actually picked them as my surprise division winner for the year. I don't think I'll take the over for that team again until Dan Snyder sells it.
