Looking Back: Preseason Predictions

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/previe...ory?id=2152292

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.

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions

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?!

NFC East (Around the NFL: NFC East (Preseason Predicitons))

The rest of the NFL (Around the NFL 2005 (archive))

Re: Looking Back: Preseason 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.

Re: Looking Back: Preseason Predictions

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

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...

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

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.

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

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.
