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?

To be really fair we are alot of absurd plays from being 8-8 or worse.

You could make that statement of pretty much any team in the league.

Think about it, its insane plays that win the games most of the time. Very rarely do you win games just making 1st downs. ;)

Just bringing it out.

FYI: I first heard the name 'Nostradumbass' applied to Matt Hasselbeck after his infamous playoff coin toss prediction, "We want the ball. We're gonna score."
