A Look at My 2008 Predictions


Burning questions are abound going into the 2008 NFL season.  Such questions as, Will Adam “Pac-Man” Jones (I don’t really care that he doesn’t want to be referred to as Pac-Man anymore – that’s who he made a name for himself as) stay out of trouble?  Will Anquan Boldin be traded?  WIll the Bears find a real quarterback?  There are so many questions and here are how I think some will be answered.

Will The New York Giants repeat as Super Bowl Champions?  I think the question should more be, will the Giants even make the playoffs, given all their injuries?  I think they still make the playoffs.  Most of their offensive weapons are still in place.

Will the Cowboys disappoint their fans and fail the reach the Super Bowl again?  Well, tough to say.  I think it’s fair to say Jessica Simpson is still a Tony Romo distraction.  Even when she isn’t there, the relationship is brought up.  If Adam Jones stays out of trouble, and Terrell Owens as well, then they have a shot at going a long way.  They have a top TE in Jason Whitten.  I guess the best part about the Cowboys is that they are in Dallas and not here.  Jerry Jones and his roster of misfits should be entertaining.

Can the Cardinals finish first in the division?  Well, it will be tough.  I’m a homer, but also a realist.  I think Seattle is still the class of the division, but Arizona is catching up.  I predicted 10 wins for the Cardinals, which is very optimistic, given they haven’t reached that total since moving to Arizona, however Seattle wins probably 11 and wins the division.  A wild-card hope is definitely in the cards.

Best Cardinals home game: Oh, well that’s easy, Miami.  Cardinals should roll.

Worst Cardinals home game: Dallas.  As hard as the Cardinals tried to make it for the Cowchip fans to make it into the stadium for the game, it is impossible to keep all of them out.  Arizona Department of Public Safety officers will have their hands full controlling the crowd.

Best Cardinals road game: Philadelphia.  It’s on national television, on Thanksgiving.  I hope the Cardinals are up to the task.

Worst Cardinals road game: New England. I don’t care if it was 106 vs. 53 players.  I don’t care if it was 53 Cardinals vs 2 Patriots, as long as those Patriots are Tom Brady and Randy Moss, Patriots will roll.  It’s in December too.  That was pretty cruel of the NFL.  Might be the biggest difference in victory in the NFL this season.

So, without further ado, my playoff predictions:

NFC Divisional Winners:  Dallas, Green Bay, New Orleans, Seattle

NFC Wildcard: New York Giants, Arizona

NFC Championship Game: New Orleans vs Dallas

NFC Champion: New Orleans

AFC Division Winners:  New England, Indianapolis, Cleveland, San Diego

AFC Wildcard: Pittsburgh, Tennessee

AFC Championship Game: New England vs. San Diego

AFC Champion: San Diego

Super Bowl Champion: San Diego

    the name is spelled witten. and jones’ roster of misfits???? what the hell are you talking about. adam jones or pac man or what ever you want to call him. i called him pac-punk before he signed with us. i’ll give him the benefit of doubt for now, cause everyone can grow up. so we’ll see on that one. good luck to your “misfitted” “cardinals” that most of your citizens in az. don’t even follow. i’d think you guys would be happy to have cowboy fans in your stadium, hell their the only ones there!!!!! thats the only time you guys can have a sell out. your coaching staff better develop a ground game if you think you can put up 10 wins. you’ll  never get 8 till you can run the ball effectively. and warner won’t make it half way thru the season if he takes a piss poundin that your line can’t protect against. seems lienart ain’t ready either. can’t wait for that cowboy /cardinal game. you can bet your ass, i’ll be back here to see how good your feelin about the “desert cardinals” then?????and you’re bashin the cowboys????? what the hell????

    Wow.  That didn’t take long.  Of course if I dish it out, I fully expect it back ten fold.  Leinart isn’t ready.  Hence the reason he isn’t the starter.  10 wins is very optimistic if you happened to read the entire post.  We got 8 last year and could have had 4 more – none of them for a lack of a running game.  The difference between me and a Cowboys fan, I know my team needs help and expect everything they get to be a struggle.  However they are getting better. Turst me as well when I say this – true Cardinals fans DO NOT want any deliquent Cowboys fans in their stadium.  The good Cowboys fans seem not to show up, but the trouble makers do.  Are you coming to the game?  Maybe you can set an example of how a true Cowboy fan should behave.  I’ve been to a couple of Cowboys games here so I only speak from experience.  If you noticed, I still pick the Cowboys to have a decent season.  I think about 12/13 wins.  They are the better team, but are they a better group of “men”?  Debatable.

    i certainly will try to be there. i too have been to a cowboy game in az. as i’ve said before, i have a packer fan uncle that lives in cottonwood az. i am planning to fly out to see him either the week of the game or the week after. i assuming my stay will have me there during that timeframe. my uncle has said that thru his business connections that we would’nt have any problems hooking up some prime seats. he said that too, ” hell, there won’t be any cardnial fans there, so you can almost have the seats of your choice.” so yeah, if i’m there, i’ll be at my best. and i’m one HELL of a courteous cowboy fan. i’ve partied heavy with tailgate packer fans in milwaukee, cheif fans in kansascity, viking fans in minneapolis, and even withstood hurling shit in old vet stadium in philly. when the game was over in milwaukee, i got hugs from a  drunk packer fan’s wife for being so cordial as the cowboys beat the pack in 91. she said thank you to me, cause her husband always fights after a loss. so i’m one of the good ones. i usually take one of my daughters or brother with me. my bro is a ram fan and he took me to st.louis for the time of my life. those stlouie boys throw one hell of a tailgate extravaganza….wow the food is awesome. and they love football talk before a game. you better know your stuff to get there respect. you know, the showme state. i promise to be good.
