I expect Elliott to be like Fred Taylor, maybe even Curtis Martin, just a durable, dependable back. After hes done being whatever he is now, that's the role he will settle into for the 2nd half of his career.


I could see that.

If in Vegas, I would bet the Rams to be ahead at halftime.

And because of that, I think there is a good chance the Rams win the SB.

Because of last year, I would expect Tom Brady to light it up in the 3rd quarter, and he might continue that through the 4th, but I think the difference will be the Rams getting a turnover or 2, near the end of the 3rd quarter, or in the 4th quarter.

So probably a Patriot WR will fumble, probably Edelman, maybe Patterson, or massive pressure up the middle makes Brady throw a pick, probably a deflection.

Time for my bold, straight out of my ass predictions for the 2019 season.

I will begin with the AFC on this post and follow with the NFC on my next post.

AFC East
New England Patriots – OK show of hands, who thinks this isn’t the Patriots division to lose? Seriously, They’ve only not won it once since 2001.

Miami Dolphins – they’re trying I tell you, trying really hard to get better, but do they have enough?

Buffalo Bills - they’re trying I tell you, trying really hard to get better, but do they have enough?

New York Jets – They’re…well….kind of trying….they did hire a new head coach that already failed miserably in this divison….so there’s that…

Patriots will once again win the Division and the only question is whether they get the first or second seed.

AFC South
Jacksonville Jaguars – They acquire fools gold, aka Nick Foles to pilot their moribund offence. Their D should be pretty good though. So maybe that’s enough.

Indianapolis Colts – Aren’t they Lucky? PUN INTENDED. So their Franchise QB up and retires just over a week before the season starts, Their defense should be pretty good, but Brissett? ****ed.

Houston Texans – If they stay healthy they could be good. But once defenses figure out to isolate Hopkins and sellout to keep Watson in the pocket…they are going to struggle.

Tennessee Titans – Feeling a sleeper pick here.

AFC North
Pittsburgh Steelers – They’ve unloaded talented but cancerous players Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown. Did they replace them at all? Methinks the Steelers are going to struggle. Smithschuster is going to get doubleteamed a whole lot more now and wont be as effective. Thinking they might miss playoffs again.

Cincinnati Bengals – Dalton is not liked. Team is under new management. Rebuilding is the name of the game. Bottom dwelling is my prediction.

Baltimore Ravens – I am unconvinced Jackson can lead this team to the promised land. Mobile QBs don’t often last long and in this division I think he’s going to get killed eventually. That being said, if he stays upright they have a good shot at the Division considering my feelings on the Steelers and Bengals.

Cleveland Browns – loaded with talent. On both sides of the ball, the real question is are they ready to take the next step. This is the darling team among the pundits. I think they make the playoffs, but I think it is a year too soon.


AFC West.

Kansas City Chiefs – I think this team is the team to beat in the AFC, but only until a good defense stifles them and everyone else follows suit. They will score a lot. But can be beat.

Los Angeles Chargers – (that still feels odd to type) – Rivers is getting long in the tooth and this may be his last hurrah. Should be a fun team to watch. But they just miss the playoffs.

Oakland Raiders – last year in Oakland this will be a circus. It will be fun to see this team implode as the season wears on.

Denver Broncos – Still a decent D. Is Flacco enough? Methinks not.

Wild card round
Baltimore Ravens host Tennessee Titans (WC) Titans win
Jacksonville Hosts Browns (WC) Jags squeak out a win ending a magical Browns season.
Division Round
Tennessee goes to New England and gets pounded by the juggernaut
Jax goes to KC and shocks everyone by stifling the KC offense.

Championship round.
Hate to say it but New England wins again.

Now for the NFC

NFC East
New York Giants – in full rebuild. Eli Manning loses his starting job by midseason and this team will only go as far as Saquon Barkley can carry them.

Washington Redskins – Please

Dallas Cowboys – Zeke is being a greedy prick. Dak thinks he’s worth 30mil plus a year. Defense could be very good, and if Zeke sees the field they will make the playoffs. But this standoff is not looking pretty.

Philadelphia Eagles – really can’t stand the Eagles. But they are the current class of the division.

NFC South
Carolina Panthers – Much ado about Cam Newtons new attitude. Much ado about nothing….he’ll revert to the same old glory hog of the past and they will go to hell with the annual Keuchly trip to injuryville.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Let’s face it Winston is not the answer. They will fail again

Atlanta Falcons – I think this will be their up year, they kind of alternate year to year so….

New Orleans Saints – Division is theirs to lose and these arrogant pricks will, to Atlanta.

NFC West
Los Angeles Rams – they are the NFC Champs and if history continues they will struggle mightily just to make the playoffs. They still have a lot of talent though.

Arizona Cardinals – going all in on a rookie at QB. Talented kid but it wont go well the first year.

Seattle Seahawks – Well now, they’ve really worked to improve. Russel Wilson is no slouch and their D will be good again. Could be a fun team to watch if it weren’t for their asshat of a coach.

San Francisco 49ers – Better but not good enough.

NFC NORTH!!!!
Two teams will make the playoffs from this division and one of them will NOT be the Packers
Green Bay Packers – Will the new coach get more out of Aaron Rodgers? I don’t think so. Another injury awaits and 25+ years of QB karma is going to come back and haunt the Packers for years.

Detroit Lions – they find ways to hose it up every year and this year will be no different.

Chicago Bears - will come back to earth, but still make the playoffs

Minnesota Vikings are going to win 13 games at least. First round bye and homefield throughout.

Wild Card Round
Seahawks go to LA and beat Rams
Bears go to Philly and win this time.

Division round
Seahawks go to Atlanta and win
Philly comes to Minny and gets stomped.

Championship round
Vikings (of course) put a whooping on Seahawks and head to Superbowl.

Vikings pull off a miracle and win the Superbowl over the Patriots.

SKOL!!!!!!!!!!!

I like the Packers to be ahead at halftime this week against SF. It seems like a good bet at Pack +2 1/2.

I suspect the refs will favor the Pack with calls and non-calls, then favor SF to make the game close, and the result could go either way. If SF has a chance to win it, I would guess Jimmy G will make the plays in a home game [in part because they came up short a few weeks ago at home against Seattle], and SF wins at the end.

Looked like Packers got away with PI on the last 49er drive, on 2nd down. Don't have a DVR, watching at a bar, and they didn't show the replay on that.

Anyone concur ?

Thought Graham had a catch, so a missed call that favored the 49ers. Surprised the Packers didn't challenge.

I hope this isn't a game where they give a few biased calls in the 1st half in favor of the 49ers, then are baised in favor of the Pack in the 2nd half, on the way to a Packers comeback victory.

Hopefully the 49ers continue playing well in the 2nd half, and hold off the Packers.

Other than the "Packers comeback victory" part, you were spot on.

Yes, I should have said, "or the refs leave the game alone and the Packers ...."

No you should have said and the referees make all the second half calls in favor the Packers and the Packers still get their asses kicked

I didn't see the 2nd half, so the refs were still trying to help the Pack get back into it ?

So the blueprint for beating the Pack:

A) Injure one of their OTs
B) Get an early lead, and break the will of the officials

I think they had like 4 penalties they accepted on their single TD drive.

If games were a cinch to call, there would be many very wealthy sports bettors.

If they are messing with games, refs don't automatically help one team, so it's hard to predict.

I thought the refs would help GB more against SF, especially the 1st half. They had plenty of chances. They could have called PI on the deep pass to Adams, even though Adams did plenty of contact himself. If the game were being swayed for GB covering the spread, they could have tried to kill a few more early SF drives with holding calls on nice gainers.

For those without twitter -

Here's my attempt at replicating the "first downs by penalty on 3rd downs" chart that's floating around.

The Packers...have been very fortunate
