Good morning Arrowhead Priders,
Well it's time!
If you are like me, each NFL offseason seems longer and longer and longggggeggerrrrrr, but FINALLY it's Christmas Morning! I haven't been this excited for an NFL season in almost 12 months and to kick it off, I thought I'd toss up a prediction thread. I did one last year and long story short, my picks were about as successful as a Scott Pioli draft pick.
Anyways, onto the predictions:
- Super Bowl winner
- NFL MVP
- Offensive/Defensive player of the year
- Offensive/Defensive Rookie of the year
- Come back player of the year
- Coach of the year
I'll list my prediction after the jump, and I'd like to hear yours. I'll take a look after the season and see how we did.
Super Bowl winner: New England Patriots over the Chicago Bears. New Englands offense continues to tick with Tom Terrific and the Two Dynamic Tight Ends, and the Hoodie continues to mold his young defense. Chicago looks great on both sides of the ball and has the best special teams unit in football.
NFL MVP: Ugh, I've picked Tony Romo 3 straight years, but I can't do it again. I do think Romo will continue to have a big year, but I'm going with Jay Cutler who has a playcaller he relates to, a healthy and happy Matt Forte, and most importantly his BFF Brandon Marshall.
Offensive/Defensive player of the year: Offensive, I'm going with Gronk. He might do something stupid like put up a stat line like 72/1,633/22 in this offense...should be fun to watch. I strugged with defense but I'm going to roll all in on my Bears bandwagon and pick Julius Peppers with 20-plus sacks.
Offensive/Defensive Rookie of the year: Well offensive rookie of the year is easy. Russel "Not Donald Stephenson" Wilson will win in a landslide. Luck and RGIII don't have the offence around them, nor the heart of this young man. Defensive ROY, I'll go with Kuechly. Voters love flashy stats, and he might have 150 tackles in that defence.
Comeback player of the year: #18, let's move on shall we.
Coach of the year: I thought about Lovie Smith but I'm going off the board with Pete Carroll. I love what he is doing in Seattle. He throws conventional wisdom out of the window and does whatever he feels is necessary to improve his ball club. I see the 49ers stepping back and the Seahawks taking the West.
So what say you AP?
