True Predictions: Vince Young Watch, San Diego Rising, Steelers Rolling and Patriots vs. Colts

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL,

Description Each week I try to pick the weekend’s most competitive games. Each week I seem to go 3-2. Last week was no different. I am now 24-17 for the season. Philadelphia Eagles fans can tell me just how short Donovan McNabb came up last weekend against the Dallas Cowboys. I thought Norv Turner’s decision-making would cost the San Diego Chargers against the New York Giants. Little did I know it would be Tom Coughlin’s choices that would cost the home team.  The Pittsburgh Steelers came through on the road against the back-to-earth Denver Broncos.

True Predictions: Favre, Ravens, Steelers vs. Broncos on MNF

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL,

Description Last week I got the Big Game right (Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings over the Green Bay Packers) and I got the Big Upset right (Baltimore Ravens over the Denver Broncos). But, after losing at home to the Miami Dolphins the New York Jets of 2009 are now hard-set into being the Jets of 2008 (very average). Yes, the New York Giants now have lost three in a row. But, as I wrote last week, don’t think Donovan McNabb’s winning performance against them is a permanent thing. He’ll let you down come playoff time (probably well before then). I go 3-2 last weekend for a 21-15 season record.

True Predictions: Bengals, Steelers, Packers vs.Vikings, and Denver’s First Loss

Carson PalmerPredictably, I go 3-2 this past weekend (not blowing it out of the water, but ahead of the game). I am now 18-13 for the season. I got it right that the Pittsburgh Steelers would take Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings. The Cincinnati Bengals won big over the Chicago Bears, and the New Orleans Saints had to come from behind to beat the Miami Dolphins. What’s up with the New York Giants who have now lost two in a row? The Atlanta Falcons had another chance to “legitimize” themselves as an NFL threat, but they could not muster enough to beat the Dallas Cowboys.

True Predictions: Steelers, Vikings, Bengals and the Los Angeles Jaguars

Ben Roethlisberger

My record runs to 15–11 after going 3–2 last weekend. Why I ever back a Norv Turner team is a mystery to me. The Denver Broncos are out of the barn! Can they be placed back in? Their defense smothered the San Diego Chargers on Monday night. Their toughest upcoming games will be home games against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the New York Giants, plus a road game against the Indianapolis Colts.  The Arizona Cardinals showed some grit and beat the Seattle Seahawks up in the Northwest. The New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, and Minnesota Vikings came away with predicted victories.

True Predictions: Vikings, Jets, Ravens, and Sea Monsters

Brett Favre

I went 4-2 this past weekend and 7-4 for the season. The Atlanta Falcons cannot make a statement and lose to the New England Patriots. You tell me if the San Francisco 49ers last second loss to Brett Favre and Minnesota Vikings equals “ugly” as I predicted. I think it counts more as “heart-breaking.” While it was a magical NFL moment to see Favre hoist that ball and to see Greg Lewis snatch it, I am of the mind that Favre will break down at some point during the season. I will either be right on this call or we may be seeing a John-Elway-like end to his career.

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?

True Predictions: New England Patriots, Brett Favre, Dallas Cowboys, Jay Leno

Adrian Peterson

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.
