Dom Bonvissuto: Inside the NFL

Carolina Panthers (8-2)

If The Playoffs Started Today: No. 2 seed

Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): at Atlanta (L), at Green Bay (L), vs. Tampa Bay (W), vs. Denver (W), at NY Giants (L), at New Orleans (L)

Final Projected Record: 10-6; Out (lose tiebreaker with New Orleans on division record)

Extra Point: The Panthers' recent play doesn't inspire much confidence, and simply winning their final two home games likely won't be enough.


New Orleans Saints (5-5)

If The Playoffs Started Today: Out

Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): vs. Green Bay (L), at Tampa Bay (W), vs. Atlanta (W), at Chicago (W), at Detroit (W), vs. Carolina (W)

Final Projected Record: 10-6; No. 4 seed (win tiebreaker with Carolina on division record)

Extra Point: We like the Saints getting on a roll at the end of the season, but that could change if they end up losing players to suspension for using the weight-loss diuretic.


Also notable...

Green Bay Packers (5-5)

If The Playoffs Started Today: No. 4 seed

Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): at New Orleans (W), vs. Carolina (W), vs. Houston (W), at Jacksonville (W), at Chicago (L), vs. Detroit (W)

Final Projected Record: 10-6; No. 3 seed (win tiebreaker with New Orleans on head-to-head)

Extra Point: A very favorable schedule, facing only one team with a winning record the rest of the way, combined with the mediocrity of the NFC North should equal a return trip to the playoffs.


Washington Redskins (6-4)

If The Playoffs Started Today: No. 6 seed

Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): at Seattle (W), vs. NY Giants (W), at Baltimore (L), at Cincinnati (W), vs. Philadelphia (W), at San Francisco (W)

Final Projected Record: 11-5; No. 5 seed (win tiebreaker with Dallas on division record)

Extra Point: Four road games in the final six appears to be a tall task, but not when three are against losing teams.


Dallas Cowboys (6-4)

If The Playoffs Started Today: Out

Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): vs. San Francisco (W), vs. Seattle (W), at Pittsburgh (W), vs. NY Giants (W), vs. Baltimore (W), at Philadelphia (L)

Final Projected Record: 11-5; No. 6 seed (lose tiebreaker with Washington on division record)

Extra Point: Two-straight home games against NFC West patsies means the Cowboys should be 8-4 and have momentum and confidence heading into a brutal four-game stretch to end the season.

He should be fired and replaced by WDK. Both have the same amount of good predictions :rofl:

On the AFC side...

New York Jets (7-3)

If The Playoffs Started Today: In; No. 3 seed

Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): at Tennessee (L); vs. Denver (L); at San Francisco (W); vs. Buffalo (W); at Seattle (W); vs. Miami (W)

Final Projected Record: 11-5; No. 3 seed (lose tiebreaker with Denver on head-to-head)

Extra Point: After Week 12, all of the Jets' difficult games come at home.


Denver Broncos (6-4)

If The Playoffs Started Today: In; No. 4 seed

Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): vs. Oakland (W); at NY Jets (W); vs. Kansas City (W); at Carolina (L); vs. Buffalo (W); at San Diego (W)

Final Projected Record: 11-5; No. 2 seed (win tiebreaker with NY Jets on head-to-head)

Extra Point: With a two-game cushion in the AFC West, the Broncos could wrap up the division title relatively early and shoot for a first-round bye.

Reviewing the season it is amazing how much everyone(media) was drinking the NFC East kool-aid. The Redskins?!! They were like third on the power ranking earlier this season as if they were a no-brainer team in the playoffs.

The Saints let a lot of people down.....a pass happy offense make for good television but get some defense. The Panthers were predicted not to make the playoffs by a few publications at 8-2....oh well.

uh-hem....cowboys..............harh!

Week 14, prior to the Monday nighter against Tampa...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (9-3)

If The Playoffs Started Today: No. 2 seed (win tiebreaker with Carolina on head-to-head).

Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): at Carolina (L), at Atlanta (L), vs. San Diego (W), vs. Oakland (W).

Final Projected Record: 11-5; No. 2 seed (win tiebreaker with Carolina on conference record).

Extra Point: In our projections, the Bucs would win the NFC South over the Panthers on the fourth tie-breaking criteria (conference record) after splitting head-to-head, division record and record against common opponents. Translation: It's gonna be a tight race, but both should get in.

If you were to check out his Week 15 projection for Carolina, you might be tempted to think "okay, maybe he's finally caught on"...

Carolina Panthers (10-3)

If The Playoffs Started Today: No. 2 seed.

Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): vs. Denver (W), at NY Giants (L), at New Orleans (W)

Final Projected Record: 12-4; No. 2 seed.

Extra Point: Believe it or not, the Panthers quietly could earn homefield advantage by winning their final three games. They would certainly earn it, with a home game against a playoff team and two road contests still left on the slate. But even a worst-case scenario (losing two of three) should be enough to get Carolina at least a wild-card entry.



But then, there's this...

Arizona Cardinals (8-5)

If The Playoffs Started Today: No. 4 seed.

Remaining Schedule (Projected Results): vs. Minnesota (W), at New England (W), vs. Seattle (L)

Final Projected Record: 10-6; No. 3 seed.

Extra Point: The NFC West champs won't relax because ... 1) the No. 2 seed is still within grasp; and 2) they still have a lot to prove.

I think next season I'll keep a running tab of my own predictions and compare them to the "experts" just to see who really calls it better...the paid professionals or the drunk idiot.

I honestly never heard of this guy before the prediction stuff got posted some weeks back. Don't know his background, how he got to be an NFL writer, etc.

What i do know though, he made some pretty bad predictions :rolleyes:

Here is how I predicted our season would go:

SD - L
CHI - W
MIN - L
ATL - W
KC - W
TB - W
NO - L
AZ - L
OAK -W
DET -W
ATL -W
GB - L
TB - W
DEN - W
NYG - L
NO - W

10-6. Looking back I overestimated GB. I'm shocked at how well ATL has played. The Cards are hard to figure out. The Vikings scared the hell out of me b4 the season started, and they still do. They are awesome up front. Injury bug bit NO, they should have had more wins.

Playoffs: The Vikings and Gaints worry me the most. The Cards, Falcons and Eagles the least. The funny thing is that the Eagles are a terrible matchup for the Vikings. The Vikes are strong up front, but the Eagles can easily negate that with 100,000 short passes and screen plays. I know the Vikes have gotta be shitting themselves. I think the Eagles will destroy the Viking secondary, and tire out their d-line with short passes. As far as ATL and ARZ, I say go with the hot team and ATL wins.

I remember reading his predictions when they first came out (someone posted them here) and thinking what is this guy smoking? I usually don't get mad at others opinions but this guy drove me nuts. How does he still have a job?
