Methodology: I went through the schedule week by week and picked the games. It was basically an exercise of "who would I favor in this game." As a result, the records skew high on top and low on bottom. The basic order holds true though.

2. Denver 14-2

3. Pittsburgh 13-3

That's alot of really good records. 8 teams with 13 wins? Last year there were none. Year before that 2. Before that 2 again. I just see no way that many teams win that many games. Also, there is no way 3 teams win only 1 game each. Quick and easy I'd say this

You can't expect me to read your whole post, can you?

But in reality it woulda been quicker to read that one sentence rather than going back and looking up the standings for the previous few seasons to make my point.

Looking around the most popular NFL sites the Packers are the sexy pick for the NFC. I'd agree expect for losing their best receiver. Sure its not like losing your QB but a key drop here and there is probably worth a couple extra losses. The margin for error in the NFL is so low.

I generally agree... but Aaron Rodgers, man. He's so good. He's the level beyond good.

The trendy pick is nearly always the teams that lose in the Conference Title Games the year before.

Yep. The ballsy ones are the guys who go with the teams who lost in the divisional round. You never see anyone pick a 6-10 team to go all the way, because ultimately they don't know ****. If they did they'd be more than just NFL "analysts." They're just fans who spew their **** out and hope they can keep it going for as long as they can.

And why not? Does anyone really remember just how wrong these guys are year after year?

For the record, this is what I had last year:

 

AFC

1. Denver (14-2)

2. New England (13-3)

3. Indianapolis (12-4)

4. Pittsburgh (11-5)

5. San Diego (11-5)

6. Cincinnati (10-6)

 

NFC

1. Seattle (13-3)

2. New Orleans (13-3)

3. Green Bay (13-3)

4. Philadelphia (10-6)

5. San Francisco (11-5)

6. Carolina Panthers (10-6)

 

I got 5/6 AFC teams right, but only 3/6 NFC teams (NFCS boned me, picked the wrong NFCW team).... I did have 5 of the final 8 nailed down - not that they were particularly difficult to predict (Denver, New England, Indy, Seattle, Green Bay). My one big regret was having Dallas miss out on tiebreak. I loved that team last year. As a result I probably overcompensated this year.

I really tried to talk myself into Minnesota or Miami, but I just couldn't. I can see the pieces there for both of those teams and a playoff season won't shock me, but I want to see it happen first before I become a believer.

Miami wouldn't shock me. Minn would.
