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

Posted by Frank Nevarez Categories: Editorial, NFL,

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

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: Saints, NFL Western Conferences, and Surprising Broncos

Drew Brees

Just came out of my first losing week; I went 2-3 (12-9 for the season). The Denver Broncos take the New England Patriots in OT. I guess the Broncos are for real. Kyle Orton “out-Brady’d” Tom Brady! The Miami Dolphins re-found the Wildcat and more than met the challenge of the New York Jets’ quick strike style (even with newbie Jet Braylon Edwards making a big contribution). The Baltimore Ravens’ loss to a gutsy Cincinnati Bengals shows how the two teams are going in opposite directions. The Atlanta Falcons got back on track and the Arizona Cardinals survived a late spurt from the Houston Texans.

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

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: 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

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.

Brett Favre brings hope to the New York Jets

NEW YORK JETS
2007 RECORD: 4-12

Overview: Brett Favre is a Hall of Fame quarterback thanks to his topping the charts in the most important quarterback statistics. Unfortunately for the New York Jets, those numbers and a Super Bowl ring came when Favre was wearing a different green for the Green Bay Packers.  Can the soon-to-be 39-year-old overcome his age as he has the past few seasons and elevate, not only his own play, but that of his teammates this season in New York?  Obviously, he won’t be able to do it on his own, but all of New York is anticipating some big things from Brett the Jet.
