OK everybody, here's your chance to either look like a genius or not...this thread is for posting your 2009 NFL predictions for posterity's sake, whether it's just for one team or all 32, division standings, Super Bowl, etc. Good luck!

As much as I like the Steelers ... they will not repeat. I also predict AZ will miss the playoffs.

AFC East: I hate to say it but New England will probably win it by default:
AFC North: Baltimore Ravens
AFC South: Indy
AFC West: By process of elimination San Diego

Wildcards: Pittsburgh, Tennessee

I will also predict one of the teams I have sleected will finish below .500 and some other team who suck on paper will have a miracle season. Always happens.

NFC East: Philly
NFC North: Minnesota
NFC South: Atlanta
NFC West: Seattle

Wildcards: NY Giants, New Orleans Saints

Same prediction as the AFC regarding my predictions.

NFC East: Philly
NFC North: Minnesota <- I think Green Bay may take it actually.
NFC South: Atlanta
NFC West: Seattle

Wildcards: NY Giants, New Orleans Saints <- I can't decide between NO or AZ

Same prediction as the AFC regarding my predictions.

I agree with you 100%. Well, except for where noted above.

A lot of people are predicting a NE Philly bowl with NE coming out on top.

I shouldn't do this before preseason is over, but oh well.

AFC East - New England Patriots
AFC South - Tennessee Titans
AFC North - Pittsburgh Steelers
AFC West - San Diego Chargers (probably at 8-8 or 9-7 again, 2nd worst division if football)
Wild Cards - Baltimore Ravens, Indianapolis Colts



NFC East - New York Giants
NFC South - Atlanta Falcons
NFC North - Green Bay Packers
NFC West - Arizona Cardinals (probably at 8-8, or 9-7, worst division in football, Seattle or San Francisco could back into this too, they all suck pretty bad)
Wild Cards - Philadelphia Eagles, Carolina Panthers

St, Louis will have the worst record overall. They will be lucky to win 3.

There is no way that the Eagles will be left out of the playoffs.

After coming off of a 16-0 season in '07, you could have said the same thing about the Patriots last year. But...for lack of a better phrase...shit happens. You never know in the NFL.

Right. My statement is assuming that there won't be catastrophic injuries. The Eagles have become a stronger team since last year, in my opinion.

I think the whole NFC East is hard to predict on any given year. Probably 2 of those teams will make the playoffs and 2 will miss but not by much. The breaks in those divisional games will probably decide which 2 are which. Its almost a coin flip IMO.

The NFC in particular is hard to predict this year. I'd say there's 12 teams thinking they've got a good shot at the playoffs.

And as always, some team will rise out of nowhere and finish 11-5.

You guys might have two of the best receivers in the league pound-for-pound. Jeremy Maclin at 6-foot, 195 and Desean Jackson at 5-10, 175.

And I'm hoping former Red Raider Danny Amendola (5-11, 180) manages to make the team...then you'd really have a small receiving group.

I just think the Giants and Cowboys are stronger teams than the Eagles. And there won't be three teams coming out of the east in the playoffs.


This is the year the Texans finally make the playoffs.
