Last year we somehow convinced ourselves that we should do NFL previews. It wasn’t the most accurate of experiments, but it was a nice concept at the time. We went through each division and predicted winners, then going back in January to examine how badly we did.
We weren’t really planning on much for this week, but it was brought up by someone that we should do it again. Well, why not? We are a little short on time, however, so we present to you eight divisions in four days.
If you have learned not to believe the hype, please don’t believe any of this, either.
Of course it’s located in Myrtle Beach, but that doesn’t stop Zach Thomas…
4. Miami Dolphins- The Dolphins are just a mess, and that makes the grass greener and the flowers smell sweeter if you are a Bills fan. However, they may be getting it together. Ricky Williams just signed an extension, Ronnie Brown at even 50% is a nice compliment, and we’ve heard good things about Chad Pennington out of camp.
Nah just kidding, the Dolphins blow.
Finally, a look inside the Jets’ war room on draft day.
3. New York Jets Did you hear the news about the Jets quarterback situation? MumblemumbleWranglerJeansmumblemumble. Okay, that’s covered. Thomas Jones will rebound nicely this year with the Jets’ improved offensive line actually blocking for him. It will be a nice change from their impersonation of concrete pillars. Listen, even with Farvaro the Jets won’t be all that great. Will they be better than the Dolphins? Sure, why not. That’s why they are here.
2. Buffalo Bills- Last year the Bills finished in second place with three fully functional humans left on defense. Needless to say, they have improved that defense, added more targets on offense, and as of yet (fingers crossed) no one has died. Even with Peters holding out they are an improved team that will finish in this spot come December.
Will I say the “P” word? Maybe. Just not this week. Or next week. Do I think they can get there? Of course I do, but I’m a Bills fan, and therefore crazy.
1. New England Patriots It may come as a shock to you, but the Patriots are still pretty good. They have the easiest schedule in the league and I’m pretty sure they have a home date with the Canisius College football team sometime in December. While I don’t think they will run the table, they are probably going to win 12-14 games and make the playoffs easily. Shocking, I know.
