    It's obviously early in the season, but I thought it'd be fun for everyone to post there playoff bracket predictions for this year... Now that we are a game or so and a half back from the exact middle of the season. Just for bragging rights.


    AFC

    1. Patriots
    2. Colts
    3. Steelers
    4. Broncos
    5.Bengals
    6.Chargers

    NFC


    1 Saints
    2 Vikings
    3 Giants
    4 49ers
    5 Falcons
    6 Packers

    :icon_toast:

    Everyone post your predictions and why.


    I say Pats over colts bc of easier schedule here on out and colts had easy schedule so far. Steelers will edge out bengals who have a tough schedule and have small victories in alot of games. Broncos win AFC west due to easy schedule and current 6-0 record. Bengals will have slightly better or equivilent record to chargers... May beat SD in reg season if our d doesnt improve.


    In NFC the saints are a winning machine. Vikings d is strong and the best o line in NFL so I say they get the other bye. Giants will finish strong but will be at home in first round. 49ers will win a terrible NFC west. Sean Hill is out and Alex smith looks goood. Davis is having the best season of any TE this year, crabrtree is in and their defense is solid. Falcons look pretty good too and will probably have a better record than niners but will be 5 cuz saints win division. I'm gonna gamble and give six spot to packers because they can play very well at times.

    I sure hope. Im not saying they will win division by much but based on the chargers, who have a tougher schedule, I expect denver to win by a game or too. The chargers also have to play there next denver game in denver...

    AFC EAST-Patriots
    AFC NORTH-Bengals
    AFC SOUTH-Colts
    AFC WEST-Broncos
    Wildcard team possibilities: Ravens, Steelers, Chargers
    Close but falling short: Houston, Jets, Miami

    :yes: This week was a confidence builder, next week we should be ready to punch the Raiders in the teeth at home. You're not in the Yay anymore, *****es.

    I'm calling Denver to go 10-6, and us to steal the division with 11-5 with only two more losses at either Giants, Cowboys, or Bengals. Pick your 2.

    Giants=Loss
    Cowboys=Loss
    Plus one other game that we get upset either Cincinnati at home, or Denver on the road.

    10-6 final record best bet.
    9-7 worse case

    I'm calling Denver to lose to: Baltimore, Pitt, Daygo, Giants, Colts, Philly.

    If we punch Oakland in the mouth early and often on every side of the ball, we should be more than ready to kick the Broncos to the curb. However, coming off a 2 game losing streak to Baltimore and Pitt and a big win against Washington, we will be in for a battle whether we are ready or not.

    If we win 3 of our next 4.........then I'll predict us in the playoffs.

    That would include winning a game @NYG or @DEN. At this point I don't think thats too much to ask.

    The Giants may not be as good as advertised.

    They beat up on ****** competition then were exposed by the Saints and now Arizona.

    Not that I'm blowing them off, I just don't think it's akin to going into Pittsburgh, Denver, or going up against New England.

    Like I said, I'm not blowing them off.

    Your statement is more of a testament to what our run defense has been most of the year than how good the Giants are IMO.

    There is the possibility that we get absolutely trampled by Jacobs and Bradshaw. I think I'm going to reserve judgement for now.
