Quick Picks The NFC Preview
After your Uncle Buck hit it big with his Super Bowl Pick last year (Patriots and Vikings) how can he not give out his predictions for the 2006-07 season? (or at least the Regular Season). Here is how the NFC is going to shake down:
1. Dallas Cowboys (12-4)
Amazingly T.O. is once again the difference maker, improving the game of even Drew Bledsoe. Parcells gets one last chance at a playoff run with a strong D and a league leading passing game.
2. New York Giants (11-5)
Eli Manning comes into his own as the Giants D makes just enough plays to win a few 12-9 games.
3. Washington Redskins (9-7)
THE pick for the Super Bowl this year by many, which is why they'll fall flat. They still don't have a QB or receivers that can over come that fact. Clinton Portis only plays in 4 games.
4. Philadelphia Eagles (9-7)
The resurgence of the Eagles is a bit premature as they struggle against their own division.
1. Chicago Bears (8-8)
This division is so bad that the Bears will take it with a .500 record.
2. Detroit Lions (7-9)
It ain't getting any better for Matt Millen who is hospitalized in December after being shot in the ass by a fan.
3. Minnesota Vikings (7-9)
The last time the season's hopes were riding on Brad Johnson, your Uncle Buck was in College.
4. Green Bay Packers (3-13)
Bret Fav-RE doesn't finish the season, but does break last years mark of 29 INTs...
1. Carolina Panthers (13-3)
A weak division and conference is all the Panthers and John Fox need to dominate.
2. Atlanta Falcons (10-6)
Michael Vick goes out early as Matt Schaub emerges and leads the Falcons to the playoffs creating a QB controversy.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-8)
Chris Simms is not Phil Simms and the Bucs' cheerleaders are way more fun to watch.
4. New Orleans Saints (5-11)
They start 1-11 and win the last 4 thanks to Reggie Bush.
1. St. Louis Rams (11-5)
The still powerful offense takes it down a notch, giving the defense more time to rest and results in more wins.
2. Seattle Seahawks (9-7)
The post-Super Bowl slump strikes again, and only a crappy division and conference keeps Seattle over .500.
3. Arizona Cardinals (6-10)
For the 3rd strait year the Cardinals are the darlings of the "out of no where" picks. Too bad they have to play the Rams and Seahawks 4 times.
4. San Francisco 49ers (4-12)
Alex Smith. Any hope of a successful season rests on the arm of Alex Smith. Nuff said.
"Dude, you suck."
