2009 NFL Season Thread

Recommended Posts

The AFC East will be another boatrace this season, as the Patriots will probably jump out to an 8-0 start and finish with a disgusting record like 14-2 or 15-1. The Jets, Bills, and Fish don't stand a snowball's chance -- even if Brady goes down again. Hell, I'll just go ahead and say it right now: For the 4th time this decade, New England's gonna win the whole damn thing.

As for the NFC, that conference is up for grabs every friggin' year (Cardinals, Giants, Bears, Seahawks, Eagles, Panthers, whatever). I'll go ahead and randomly pick the 49ers Cardinals to represent and get throttled in the Super Bowl this time around.

Fixed for accuracy

I really don't think the Pats are going anywhere this year, and it has nothing to do with the fact that I can't stand them ;)

As for the Cardinals...well, maybe. The NFC is hard to pick.

I really don't think anyone outside the original thirteen can stand the Patriots?God knows I can't. I just don't see how any team can deal with their receiving corps come playoff time.

If the Patriots even come close to their 2007-08 form, they're my favorites to win the whole thing again. Tom Brady + Randy Moss >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> any defense in the league.

I'll ask you guys, as I'm afraid that I am blinded by my fanhood:

Is it ridiculous for me to think the Dolphins will win the division again?

With Pat White the Wildcat should still be effective not as much as last season but with Mr. Brady back in New England it could be tough

I seem to recall a game between the Patsies and Dolphins down in Miami a couple years ago, I want to say it was a prime time game at that...one in which the heavily favored Pats got rolled on by the Dolphins. And this was before the Wildcat. And with Brady in the lineup.

(Of course, the Eagles and the Bengals also managed to tie recently, so...)

Point is...anything's possible in today's NFL. That even includes my Buccaneers winning more than four games...though I ain't holding my breath.

There was a primetime game in Miami in 2004 - but the Patriots didn't get "rolled on". Then there was the 2006 game in Miami, not primetime, Dolphins won 21-0, but Reche Caldwell was the best receiver on the field for the Pats.

My prediction this year is New England wins everything, but that's my predicition every year...

You're high. Pittsburgh hasn't a potent enough offense to topple the Pats. In terms of offense, the only teams that come close are Indianapolis, San Diego, Arizona and New Orleans?and Indy and San Diego are a stretch.

Pittsburgh's defense is the best in the league, but I can't imagine how they'd match up when New England trots out Moss, Welker and Galloway.

Again like I said these are very early predictions I'm going to wait until after Preseason to make full realistic ones.

The NFC has pretty much been a crapshoot since the Dallas dynasty of the 90s. The only NFC teams who haven't made the Super Bowl in the last 15 years are Detroit, Minnesota, New Orleans and Washington, if that tells you craptastic the National Football Conference is.

Pittsburgh did beat Arizona in the Super Bowl, and the Cardinals' trio of Fitzgerald-Boldin-Breaston is comparable to Moss-Welker-Galloway.

I think that had more to do with Ken Whisenhunt throttling back the octane in his team's offense--the same super-octane offense that helped get them to the SB in the first place--and instead trying to play ball-control smashmouth offense (methinks as a little "personal vendetta"). It's a crying shame that it took him three quarters to figure out he needed to go up top instead of trying to out-Steeler the Steelers just for some type of personal glory.

The sad part is that I knew from his last interview prior to the Super Bowl that the Cardinals were done for. The quote that sealed it up for me went something like "we feel real good in our game plan...we're confident in our game plan". I think he used "game plan" like three times in the same sentence...which only confirmed what I already suspected: that Ken was going to try play smashmouth instead of doing what got the team there and going up top with the ball.

All that said...IF Q stays with the Birds this year, then yeah, I'd say that the two corpses (is there a plural form of "corps"?) are pretty similar.

I can't see how Galloway stays healthy enough to play more than a handful of games.

49ers will be 6-10 or 7-9 if their lucky. This coming from a 49ers fan.

Trust me, anyone can win the NFC crown in '09. (Yes, this even includes Detroit. ^_^)
