I haven’t been blogging about sports or the NFL for a few months, and I might not ever blog about it to the extent I did in 2014 again.
As we head into the Draft, however, I feel that I need to release my 1st Round mock draft – and give you my thoughts on who I want in Chicago. Here are my three favorite players in this year’s Draft: Marcus Mariota, Landon Collins, and Danny Shelton.
After ending my regular season picks and predictions season I felt that a heavy weight was off my shoulders – but having seen how much I enjoy the playoffs this year, I’ve decided to give you my playoff prediction.
See, originally in my NFL 2014 Season Preview-post I called a lot of things wrong – though I still stand by the idea that Jay Cutler has had a great year, I did not see the Chicago-nosedive coming – and I definitely didn’t see the failure of the NFC South coming. Not at all.
In my season preview-post, however, I predicted that the Seattle Seahawks would defend their Super Bowl crown against last year’s opponent again – the Denver Broncos. Do I think that’s still possible? Yes. Is it my prediction? See below.
For the regular season picks and predictions, week-by-week, I ended up with a win-percentage of 61 (158-98). I’m actually very pleased with that, with the NFC South and Chicago-nosedives in mind.
Now, last week I went 2-2 in the playoff-prediction. I predicted that the Panthers & Ravens would lose – but that the Cowboys and Colts would defeat the Lions and Bengals respectively.
Here’s my prediction for the rest of the playoffs:
My overall prediction score is still at 75%, and I go into this week with four new week predictions. This week I’ll once again note an updated Power Ranking, and a pretender. New this week, I’m naming the best team of last week, as well as the worst.
San Francisco 49ers
San Diego Chargers
New England Patriots
Green Bay Packers
St. Louis Rams
New Orleans Saints
New York Jets
Kansas City Chiefs
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
New York Giants
Week 3 Predictions
Unbalanced Lovie: So far this season, Tampa Bay has not done anything truly spectacular. As we saw in Chicago, Lovie Smith is not a good coach for the offense – and one wonders if this trend will continue in Tampa. When the Bucs go to Atlanta, they will be beaten by a much better offense. Matt Ryan takes the win.
The Saints Are Coming: I predict that the New Orleans Saints will get back on track by beating Minnesota – and getting their first win.
Started From The Bottom…: I believe, and predict, that the Bears will beat the New York Jets on Monday Night Football, and keep control of their division – tied for 1st place.
Motor City Win: My final prediction of the week is that the Green Bay Packers will drop to 1-2, by losing to the Detroit Lions. I don’t see anything special in Green Bay, other than their no. 12. Detroit will win.
