So, I decided that before I finished more individual divisions, I should do records for the whole NFL. I'm sure ESPN hopes I'm right because if I am, they'll have plenty to talk about leading up to the play offs, particularly dealing with tie-breakers. Fun stuff those tie-breakers.....

D= Division Winner

W=Wild Card

*Seattle, Philadelphia and Carolina all have 8-8 records. Unfortunately they do not all play each other Carolina and Philadelphia do not play each other in the regular season, but both play and lose to Seattle. I think this would result in Seattle getting the wild card spot with the win loss record within the NFC determining the order in which Carolina and Philadelphia draft. This was determined following the rules posted at http://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakers.

 

Playoff rankings.

AFC

1: San Diego Chargers**

2: Baltimore Ravens**

3: New England Patriots **

4: Indianapolis Colts

5: New York Jets

6: Tennessee Titans

 

** I'm kicking myself for having this happen...The Patriots lose to both the Ravens and the Chargers, The Ravens beat the Patriots but lose to the Chargers, and the Chargers beat both the Ravens and the Patriots during the regular season. Therefore, according to the rules at the site above, the order would be as above based on Head to Head W-L%

 

NFC

1: Chicago Bears

2: Dallas Cowboys

3: New Orleans Saints

4: San Francisco 49ers

5: Atlanta Falcons

6: Seattle Seahawks

 

*** Yeah...more tiebreaker fun. New Orleans and Dallas do not play one another, so the tie breaker becomes their record against NFC opponents. Dallas has (10-2), while New Orleans has a (9-3)

 

 

AFC Record (131-125)

NFC Record (125-131)

 

So my surprise team for the year is the 49ers. I know they've lost some coaching personnel, but Alex Smith is showing signs of finally breaking through, and Frank Gore is probably one of the top 10 backs, in my opinion. They did decent in the draft, shored up their defense. Don't want to get into to much here...this post is long enough as it is.

 

There is a chart that has my picks, game by game. I don't particularly feel like posting a reason for each game, so I may hold off on posting the entire list. But if I get a bunch of questions, or requests, I can throw it out. Ask questions about particular teams if you want....I can turn them into blog posts. Read, respond, question my sanity, but try to keep a level head...flames with out reason will be ignored. Angry flames with reason will be talked about...but I probably won't change my opinion unless something is brought up that I didn't think about.
