SUPER BOWL XLIII - TAMPA, FL Tampa Bay def. New England
smark/net attack Advisory System Status is: Elevated (Holds; June 18, 2006) While the switch from Cena to RVD should alleviate some complaints, the inevitability of the belt's return to Cena (note where Summerslam is this year) and the poor initial showing by the new ECW are enough to keep the indicator where it is for now. The pieces are in place, though, especially on RAW, for improvements to be made to the IWC's psyche in the near future.

This. Except take out Denver and put Cleveland as the 6th team in the AFC. And no Washington and replace it with Tampa Bay. I believe San Diego would make the AFC Title against New England and Dallas beating Minnesota.
My predictions have stunk for the last couple years. I blame being too conservative, soooo....
AFC EAST 1. Pats 2. Bills 3. Jets 4. Dolphins
AFC NORTH 1. Steelers 2. Bengals* 3. Browns 4. Ravens
AFC SOUTH 1. Colts 2. Texans 3. Jags 4. Titans
AFC WEST 1. Chargers 2. Broncos* 3. Raiders 4. Chiefs
NFC EAST 1. Eagles 2. Giants* 3. Cowboys 4. Redskins
NFC NORTH 1. Packers 2. Vikings* 3. Lions 4. Da Bears
NFC SOUTH 1. Saints 2. Panthers 3. Bucs 4. Falcons
NFC WEST 1. Seahawks 2. Rams 3. 49ers 4. Cardinals
Superbowl: Eagles over Pats
- The Texans and Rams will be better than currently advertised. - The Jets and Jags will be very much worse than currently advertised. - The Bills will be this years "quietly very good" team - The Cowboys have got just enough combustible elements to self-implode, and will. - Somewhere between 90 and 100% of my predictions will be wrong (except this one).
Well, hopefully these picks go better than my draft picks did:
AFC East: N.E. (13-3)/Buffalo (9-7)*W.C.*/N.Y. Jets (7-9)/Miami (5-11) AFC North: Cleveland (10-6)/ Pittsburgh (10-6)*W.C.*/ Cincinatti (8-8)/ Baltimore (6-10) AFC South: Indy (11-5)/ Jacksonville (9-7)/ Houston (8-8)/ Tennessee (6-10) AFC West: San Diego (13-3)/ Oakland (7-9)/ Denver (6-10)/ Kansas City (4-12)
NFC East: Dallas (12-4)/ N.Y. Giants (10-6)*W.C.*/ Washington (7-9)/ Phily (7-9) NFC North: Minnesota (10-6)/ Green Bay (9-7)/ Detroit (7-9)/ Chicago (5-11) NFC South: New Orleans (11-5)/ Tampa Bay (7-9)/ Carolina (6-10)/ Atlanta (4-12) NFC West: Seattle (10-6)/ Arizona (9-7)*W.C.*/ St. Louis (6-10)/ San Francisco (6-10)
W.C. Matchups AFC- Indy over Buffalo/ Cleveland over Pittsburgh NFC- NY Giants over Seattle/ Minnesota over Arizona
Division Matchups AFC- Indy over N.E./ San Diego over Cleveland NFC- Minnesota over New Orleans/ NY Giants over Dallas
Conference Championships AFC- San Diego over Indy NFC- Minnesota over NY Giants
Well, hey, it seems like a good time to display my total lack of knowledge:
AFC East 1- New England 2- NY Jets 3- Buffalo 4- Miami
Jets and Bills could easily flip in the standings, and Miami could even sneak their way into the mix, but no one's going to catch the Pats this season at least.
AFC North 1- Pittsburgh 2- Cleveland 3- Cincinnati 4- Baltimore
Again, 2-4 could be in any order. Pittsburgh's my pick almost by default because I'm not sure about Joe Flacco, Cincinnati staying off the police blotter, and having seen Cleveland's first team absolutely implode against the Giants, I'll go with the Steelers
AFC South 1- Jacksonville 2- Indianapolis 3- Tennessee 4- Houston
Broken record, but this division could change so easily. This pick is largely due to the uncertainty over Peyton Manning, and it's also assuming that Jacksonville's ready to step up. Both Wild Cards are coming out of this division too.
AFC West 1- San Diego 2- Denver 3- Oakland 4- Kansas City
Eh, I'm weak on the West, what can I say?
AFC Playoffs Wild Card Weekend Pittsburgh over Tennessee Jacksonville over Indianapolis
Divisional Playoffs Jacksonville over San Diego New England over Pittsburgh
AFC Championship New England over Jacksonville
NFC East 1- Dallas 2- NY Giants 3- Philadelphia 4- Washington
It's all on the Giants defense. If they spend the year in a post-Super Bowl and post- Osi/Strahan hangover, there's no playoff trip. Otherwise, it'll be another Wild Card berth.
NFC North 1- Minnesota 2- Green Bay 3- Chicago 4- Detroit
Green Bay may sneak into a Wild Card, either way though, Rogers doesn't embarrass himself too badly
NFC South 1- Tampa Bay 2- Carolina 3- New Orleans 4- Atlanta
Carolina's my pick for the 2nd Wild Card.
NFC West 1- Seattle 2- San Francisco 3- St. Louis 4- Arizona
See AFC West.
NFC Playoffs Wild Card Weekend Tampa Bay over Carolina NY Giants over Seattle
Divisional Playoffs Minnesota over Tampa Bay Dallas over NY Giants
NFC Championship Dallas over Minnesota
Super Bowl XLIII New England over Dallas- but no 19-0. Pats will lose at least twice in the regular season.

DIVISIONAL MATCH-UPS . . Eagles over Cowboys
Hey, if Dallas wind up bottom of the East and the league decide to let 'em back in the playoffs just so they can take another well deserved beating at the hands of the Eagles I'm all for it, but I'm not sure that's what you meant...
According to King Kaufman at Salon (salon.com) (you will need to watch a brief ad to read the article) as of tomorrow Gregg Easterbrook returns to ESPN.com with his pre-draft edition of Tuesday Morning Quarterback.
