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.

NFL Preview: Washington Redskins

Posted by Dean Browski Categories: NFL,

Jason Campbell of the Washington Redskins

2007 RECORD: 9-7

Overview: The 2007 Redskins did make the playoffs after a strong finish to the regular season, winning four straight.  That gives ‘Skins fans a reason to be excited.  A new coaching staff though is going to have to make significant strides during preseason camp to get an average offense to hit their stride.  Jim Zorn, by all accounts, has a great football mind, but he is the head coach and offensive coordinator* and has never held either of these positions in the NFL.  Expect some growing pains early on and a heavy reliance on their defense. 

*Sherman Smith is listed as the Offensive Coordinator but Zorn will be making the play calls.

Tony Romo leads the Dallas Cowboys

2007 RECORD: 13-3

Overview: Expectations in Big D are sky-high and no one is going to be happy with anything less than a Super Bowl ring.  The past two years have seen the Dallas Cowboys bow out of the playoffs before their time.  Two years ago it was Tony Romo fumbling a PAT snap; last year it was losing to the Giants, a team they scored 76 points against in two regular season games.  There is a whole lotta ego in the locker room, and one thing for sure is that the Cowboys will not have a quiet 2008.

Eli Manning of the New York Giants

2007 RECORD: 10-6
Overview: The New York Giants had the best postseason run in NFL history and possibly sports history last year.  To win three straight road games in the playoffs and to then knock off the seemingly invincible New England Patriots in the Super Bowl was absolutely amazing.  I don’t blame anyone for getting caught up in the Giants of the last four games, but let us not forget the Giants of the first 16 games.  Be excited about Eli Manning, be excited about the duo at the running back position, but we must curb our enthusiasm for many other aspects of this team in 2008.

Donovan McNabb get ready to throw

2007 RECORD: 8-8

Overview: The past few seasons the Philadelphia Eagles have had some really tough losses and had to deal with some really tough issues.  From the Terrell Owens fiasco, to Andy Reid’s off-the-field problems, to Donovan McNabb’s season-ending injury from two years ago, this team has been through a lot and survived.  Despite not making the playoffs last year, the Eagles can point to one or two plays that would’ve put them in the playoffs.  Look for the gods to smile on the Eagles in 2008, or at the very least, stop kicking them in the teeth.
