True Predictions: Falcons, 49ers, Broncos, Bengals, and Headaches

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, News, NFL,

Description

I went 3-2 over the past weekend (10–6 for the season). The Baltimore Ravens, even with questionable calls favoring the New England Patriots, came close to potentially taking a big step to the “next level.” However, a dropped pass by Mark Clayton ended that opportunity. New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez looked like the rookie he is in the game against the New Orleans Saints. Meanwhile the Pittsburgh Steelers and Denver Broncos took games that would not have surprised us if they went the other way. Minnesota Vikings QB Brett Favre continued to wow the masses with another impressive showing against his old team, the Green Bay Packers. If the Packers don’t improve that offensive line they’re not going to beat Brett and the Vikings when he makes his “homecoming” visit later in the season.

True Predictions: Jets, Patriots, Tony Romo, NFL in L.A.

Tony Romo

Last week I went 3–2 with my predictions: The New York Jets have arrived early for both me and the New England Patriots. The Manning Brothers, Eli and Peyton, proved true to the pedigree with both leading great fourth quarter drives (I didn’t pick the New York Giants, but did pick the Indianapolis Colts) for the win.The Chicago Bears beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on a fourth quarter victory drive; I figured they’d want/need this one more.  Yes, I predicted that the Baltimore Ravens would beat the San Diego Chargers. Gotta love Norv Turner’s decision-making. USC head coach Pete Carroll would love San Diego, wouldn’t he? And he’s seen the old Teflon take some hits at USC, right?

The new season has begun and it’s time to look at how things will shape up in Week Two.  Remember, it’s a long season, so get comfy and let’s take a look at the big news coming out of the NFL.

Carolina Panthers’ QB Jake Delhomme’s confidence is shot and his ace receiver, Steve Smith, doesn’t believe in him either.  Bill Cowher, meet your new team.

Super Bowl 2009 participants, the Arizona Cardinals, lose Game One to the San Francisco 49ers. Ouch, what’s the percentage of teams losing the first game of the season and winning the Super Bowl? Not good. What’s the percentage of losing Super Bowl teams tanking the next season?  Sometimes history is a cruel thing.

Larry Fitzgerald gets it done for the Arizona Cardinals

ARIZONA CARDINALS
2007 RECORD: 8-8

Overview: The most interesting yet challenging team to write about are the Arizona Cardinals. Led by head coach Ken Whisenhunt, every preseason the Cardinals look like a team that could compete for the divisional title. That has yet to happen. On paper, this offense looks stacked with a lot of talent, headed by quarterbacks Matt Leinert and the experienced veteran Kurt Warner, as well as freshly re-signed wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and (a disgruntled) Anquan Boldin, the offense looks like a powerhouse that its rivals need to take notice of. Unfortunately, they have yet to play to their potential on the offensive side of the ball, and for the last few seasons, have been rebuilding their defense.  This preseason yet again, I am putting the Cardinals in contention for the NFC West crown.
