If you don’t know, FOOTBALL SEASON KICKS OFF TONIGHT!!!
Sorry, I just got excited. In high anticipation for, as my friend Matt says, “The most wonderful time of the year” (As if it came close to Christmas!) I have been drafting fantasy football teams, evaluating my Broncos, and salivating over the exciting promise of rookies and young teams. I have mapped out the results for this year, so you really don’t even need to watch any games.
Below, you will find my Top 3 storylines of this year, as well as my playoff and Super Bowl picks. I didn’t make playoff picks last year (I’m choosing this route instead of making a short preview of every NFL team) but my Super Bowl had New England losing, which I was right about. I chose the Packers instead of the Giants, though. I still win.
Top 3 Storylines:
- Rookies!- Andrew Luck and RGIII lead the pack of exciting rookies to watch this year, including 5 rookie starting QBs. This will be fun. And by the way, I have Luck with the better stats, but RGIII with more wins.
- Tim Tebow- I can’t help it, guys. It’s a disease. Tebownitis: inflammation of the Tebow. I think he will be starting by Week 5. Even though I hate the Jets, I’m excited to watch Jets games.
- Peyton Manning- As a Broncos fan, I’m pretty worried about our all-in on Manning. I understand he’s one of the best of all time, but if he get’s hit wrong, we could be starting Brock Osweiler.
Playoff Teams: (division winners 1-4, wildcards 5&6)
- New England Patriots
- Denver Broncos
- Houston Texans
- Baltimore Ravens
- San Diego Chargers
- NY Jets
- Green Bay Packers
- Dallas Cowboys
- San Francisco 49ers
- Atlanta Falcons
- Detroit Lions
- Carolina Panthers
In Super Bowl 47 in New Orleans, my picks are:
Green Bay Packers over the Baltimore Ravens, 24-10
(My heart wants a Broncos-Cowboys Super Bowl, but my head prevailed)
What storylines are you looking forward to this year? Who are you playoff teams?
