DKSB's OFFICIAL (and 100% accurate) 2009 NFL Predictions

XLIV will be the first Super Bowl decided in OT... but who will win?????

Something I really hate is implausible preseason predictions. I don't mean things like "the Lions will make the playoffs," either. I'm talking about when some lazy sportswriter predicts the records for all 32 teams and comes up with an impossible aggregate record, or predicts playoff matchups without working through tiebreakers, etc.

That's why at DKSB, we go through the ENTIRE regular season (using a grid like this) and predict the winner of EVERY game, so all the pieces fit together. Here it is, y'all:

NFC West

Cardinals 9-7
49ers 6-10
Rams 2-14

Don't take this the wrong way, but don't you think you're undervaluing the Cowboys and the Broncos more because you want them to be terrible than the actual chances of them being so. I mean, I'm all for both of those two teams having fantastical collapses as much as you are, I'm just not as positive it's going to happen.

Not at all.. look at their skeds, and explain to me how Dallas wins 10 or more games, or how Denver wins 4 or more... go ahead.. look it up :-]

As for "collapses..." Dallas was 9-7 last year... 9-7 again is not a collapse... and Denver could easily take a 5-game dive from 8-8 to 3-13

IMHO, of course
