National Football League 2008 Predictions

>> I used to do comprehensive predictions for the NFL season – ranking each time, analyzing each draft, predicting specific records – and sometimes I was right, and sometimes I was really wrong, but usually I was better than the ESPN guys who do this for a living. I still do all of this, but I do it in the deserted sports bar now, so no one has to listen to me except the hobos who wander in looking for freebies. So I’ll just give you my playoff teams and a few other facets.

My predictions for the way the season turns out (made before the Brady injury – I’d stick the Titans in there instead):

Coach of the Year: Ken Whisenhunt

MVP: Drew Brees

Offensive POY: Terrell Owens

Defensive POY: Julius Peppers

Offensive ROY: Chris Johnson

Defensive ROY: Keith Rivers

AFC East: Buffalo Bills

AFC North: Pittsburgh Steelers

AFC South: Indianapolis Colts

AFC West: Denver Broncos

Wild Cards: New England Patriots, San Diego Chargers

NFC East: Philadelphia Eagles

NFC North: Green Bay Packers

NFC South: Carolina Panthers

NFC West: Arizona Cardinals

Wild Cards: Dallas Cowboys, New Orleans Saints

Super Bowl Matchup: Steelers v. Panthers

Super Bowl Victor: Pittsburgh Steelers
