Looking Back: Preseason Predictions

I thought it might be fun to look back at the "experts" to see how close they were.

Actually, I thought it might be fun to look at how many of these geniuses overlooked us entirely.

Joey T's gettin' smarter every week! It's interesting to see how many teams have completely reversed position since last year. EX. won division last year, last this year etc.

It still makes me laugh to see how many "experts" were all over the Cardinals' jock.

Speaking of experts, how about we revisit our own predictions?!

Pretty impressive how many of you guys actually nailed the 10-6. Of course, we aren't there yet!

I'm still pretty nervous about the game on Sunday.... have a feeling though, that the Raiders are going to be playing the spoilers to the Giants on Saturday. I've seen the Redskins play in Oakland Coliseum... and those fans in the Blackhole can be quite the distraction. If they raise it up to the Giants like our fans did to them here, there will be some serious distraction going on.

Looking back is great.

But I try not to predict, and prefer to simply watch.


That pointy-ended ball the NFL uses does indeed take funny bounces.

The referees calls are skewed to the Home teams favor, the majority of the time. So, we have to win-out in our own FEDEX Field.

This year has turned out better than I had expected.







A "We Want Philly" smilie needed here!

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions
 
the fact that we can go 5-1 in our division is what impresses me the most. Thats what I was really hoping we would turn around

Yeah I remember him making me a bet that if the Skins beat the Cowboys (on that Monday night game) he'd buy me a Redskins jersey. Hhhmmmm...still waiting... :)

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions
 
My predictions aren't too far off...but I think what I stated afterwards is probably close to what is happening...
[quote=myself]
Eagles 9 - 7
Redskins 9-7
Dallas 8 - 8
Giants 7 - 9

Redskins, Cowboys, and Giants will all improve...this will be Dallas' best season before having to go through a huge rebuilding period. The Eagles will become more medicore in the next couple of years.

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions
 
Well I posted for dallas to have a 10-6 season we're almsot there also phi 10 -6 but hey no one new donovan would get hurth on the second week, we all new TO will colapse but Phi was domminent before TO the problem they lose Donovan. Also I predicted 8-8 for you guys wich is close but not that close.

In the 1 that I really messed up is the Giants at 4 -12 wow was I wrong

D'BOYZ 12-29-2005 12:07 PM

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions
 
ANd in the NFL I had Patriots, Colts, Pitt, Chargers DEN and CIN as Wild card verry close being that I only missed on the chargers. and had Eagles, MIN, CAR, SEAT, ATL and DAllas as wild cards.


here I was worse MIN and ATL are out and either car or dall are out (in my opinion) i believe you have the best chances of the 3

Never I tought of chicago and even less once grossman got hurth.

I placed Car vs INd with IND winning in the SB and that still can happen lol

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions
 
I think alot of us were wrong about the Giants, but I betcha if Tiki was injured, this team would be hurting. Now, I have always said that a team wins and loses as a team, but Tiki has turned into a difference maker. I say alot of the Giants credit goes to Tiki and him taking alot of pressure off of Eli Manning.

D'BOYZ 12-29-2005 12:15 PM

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions
 
I totally agree that's why I put the point of donovan, Tiki is to the giants what Donovan is to Phi. Wen he got hurth early i nthe season it all went downhill they still won some games before we put hi mon the ground but he wasn't the usual self and it showed in a lot of the games

If tiki had gone down I agree the giants would had had the season their having

skinsguy 12-29-2005 12:22 PM

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions
 
I believe that is why it's best to have good depth at the quarterback and running back positions. I've have always preached that no matter what, you always have a good veteran quarterback on your team regardless if he is starting for you or not. That way, if the #1 guy goes down, you have someone who can come in and pick up the offense and move forward. Samething applies with the running game. We have three very good backs that can step in and keep our running game dangerous: Portis, Betts, and Cartwright. If any one of those guys goes down, there is someone there to pick up the slack.

I'm not sure if the Giants have a really good #2 guy as a running back. I believe Tiki is such an important part of the offense, that they tend to rely on him alot.

skinsguy 12-29-2005 12:26 PM

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions
 
As you mention, D'Boyz, Philly is great when they have Mcnabb, but if he goes down, that puts alot of pressure on Westbrook. NcNabb, Westbrook, and Owens are all difference makers and are heavily relied on. There is so much that went into keeping them (well maybe not Owens,) that there was nothing left as far as depth for the Eagles. I'd rather have good depth at QB and RB, than to put all my marbles into the #1 positions.

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions
 
yeah but somethimes you can't cover all your flaws with depth look at us we have servicible backups at wr, rb but have no depth at qb (thank god bledsoe can stand a beating), Oline (our mayor problem) and Safety heck we don't even have a quallity starter at FS.

It's the same with you; had Moss went down instead of trash or patten you might be singing a different tune.

And in the case of Tiki they have the rookie Jacobs that there was a lot of fuzz before the season but hasn't put the numbers and if tiki had gone down I don't believe jacobs would have produce enough to be the diference.

I agree about Moss...that would've been the same as Tiki going down with an injury. That is one area that I believe we still need improve on, although I will say that having Cooley helps us tremendously in the receiver/tight end category.
