Oh you thought I forgot… Oh nah I couldn’t leave you without the twenty guarantees for this football season. Things are so tight lipped this year that I had to wait until the very last minute to make this work. I have been working at over an 80% clip for the past few seasons so here we go…
- Dispite the holdout Maurice Jones Drew will still have a productive start to the year. However by week 8 he will be gone and possibly never heard of until next season. Not a jinx, just fact and he will pay with injuries for missing camp like he did.
- Benjarvis Green Ellis will fumble at least two times this season.. No way you can go to Cincy and not become a turnover machine. (I am probably reaching on this one but we will see)
- The Pittsburgh Steelers will not make the playoffs this year. They have more holes on defense than in years past but they will struggle with their new offense.
- Take it to the bank, Torrey Smith breaks out this year and leads the NFL in total yards receiving.
- Michael Vick will be a human punching bag this year. That clean jersey you see on the top of the page will be permanently stained due to the amount of time he spends on his back.. He will probably hit the shelf around week 9. Chances of him finishing this year are zero with that offensive line.
- The New York Jets will enter quarterback controversy discussion by week 8. Even if they are doing well the media won’t allow them to stand pat with Tebow lurking. Tim Tebow will start one game for the Jets this year. It will be impossible not to give him one start in that media. (I didn’t say what position tho)…
- This will be a great year to have Jay Cutler on your fantasy football team. Cutler should be brilliant and his new targets should have him smiling like a kid in a candy store.
- The rookie quarterback with the most pressure to perform this year will be Russell Wilson. Can’t say enough good things about this kid’s skillset. However, he has pressure to perform because Matt Flynn is making all the dough and if he isn't productive he will get the hook quickly.
- The Dallas Cowboys will finally have a season to remember. But it will be for all the wrong reasons. They will finish aroung .500 but the chances of them making the playoffs with that offensive line are slim and none.
- Alfred Morris will be the sleeper player that no one is talking about early but will be rolling off everyone's tongue by the end of the year. Take it to the bank.
- Drew Brees will lead the NFL in total passing yards. Brees will also lead the NFL in attempts.
- Cam Newton will not be as good as he was last year but he will still be impressive. I suspect he throws for about 3800 yards and rushes for 700.
- Calvin Johnson will be the NFL Most Valuable Player this year barring injury. Chances are Megatron will be the talk of the NFL by week 4. We might even see a few records fall in the process.
- The Houston Texans will win 10 games and start to peak at the end of the year. I suspect it will be Houston and Baltimore in the AFC Championship game this year.
- The San Francisco 49ers will be nearly unbeatable this year. They will win 11 games and will play the New York Giants in the NFC Championship game this year.
- This is finally the year that Cris Carter gets into the Hall of Fame. The snub ends this year as he gets in and can finally break that barrier.
- This will be the year that Joe Flacco breaks out and shows the world he is ready to be the quarterback that everyone wants him to be. Folks forget that he was one dropped pass away from being in the super bowl last year. Flacco puts up big numbers this season.
- Peyton Manning will play well later in the season but he will struggle early. Questions will continue to surface about Manning and his arm strength. No more luxuries of the dome to bail him out in the winter months but I suspect he will find a way to get it done in the regular season anyway.
- Chris Johnson rebounds from two very subpar years and leads the NFL in total yards this year. He won’t lead the NFL in rushing though as he will fall short to Arian Foster in that area.
- The NFL referees will be back on the field before week 5. Chances are a high profile player will lose it over a bad call resulting in immediate action and player safety concerns.
There you have it...
Stay Breezy ~ I'm Out!
