I’m back for a 5th season of shenanigans, wacky predictions, a bit of humor, and perhaps even some useful football knowledge. As a reminder, these first posts are very long every year, so if you want a cliff notes version, read everything but hold off on reading analysis on EVERY team. Just pick a few you’re interested in.
Other than the fact that it’s FMQB and it’s fun to get pumped for the football season, why should you read this? Take a brief look at 2 of last year’s predictions and figure out why:
- I successfully predicted the Super Bowl winner, picking the Patriots. (albeit I had them defeating the Bears, oops)
- I correctly predicted 4 teams records on the nose. And was only 1 win/loss on 12 others. That’s half the league!
- Bonus prediction: I had Nick Foles as the league MVP (his team didn’t even make the playoffs)…you win some you lose some
Sam Bradford will tear it up in Philadelphia, taking the team to the playoffs
Darren McFadden wins comeback player of the year (over Adrian Peterson, but he won’t get it due to NFL politics)
Jimmy Graham will struggle with the Seahawks. <5 TD’s and under 700 yards.
Marcus Mariotta will far out-perform Jameis Winston
DeMarco Murray will drop off drastically, LeSean McCoy will out rush him in their new respective teams
Ben Roethlisberger will lead the league in Yards and/or TD’s thrown this year
