NFL 2018 Season Preview

As we approach the NFL season, it will certainly be interesting how it will play out. Below is how our NFL guys 😉 believe this season will pan out including division winners, MVP and Super Bowl matchups! We would love to hear your feedback.

AFC East Winner:

Sauce: New England Patriots

   Dimes: New England Patriots

   Burt B: New England Patriots

   El Capitano: New England Patriots

   Flan: New England Patriots

   Shmurda: New England Patriots

All of our guys believe the Patriots will win the division. No surprise who else would win? The only division we all agree on..

AFC West Winner:

    Sauce: Los Angeles Chargers

    Dimes: Oakland Raiders

    Burt B: Oakland Raiders

    El Capitano: Kansas City Chiefs

    Flan: Los Angeles Chargers

    Shmurda: Los Angeles Chargers

All over the place on this one. But really who is going to win this division? Can Jon Gruden bring the Raiders back to the promise land? Will the Chargers finally pull thru?

AFC North Winner:

     Sauce: Pittsburgh Steelers

     Dimes: Baltimore Ravens

     Burt B: Pittsburgh Steelers

     El Capitano: Pittsburgh Steelers

     Flan: Baltimore Ravens

     Shmurda: Pittsburgh Steelers

Flan and Dimes might be smoking crack on this one, but the Ravens defense is tough and mean again. Watch out, Pittsburgh.

AFC South Winner:

     Sauce: Tennessee Titans

     Dimes: Houston Texans

     Burt B: Houston Texans

     El Capitano: Jacksonville Jaguars

     Flan: Jacksonville Jaguars

     Shmurda: Houston Texans

I was surprised to not see a lot of Jaguars on this one, but I guess I am not the only one not high on the Jaguars this year. The Texans could be deadly this year and a lot of our guys are really high on them as you’ll see later on..

AFC Wildcard Teams:

     Sauce: Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars

     Dimes: Jacksonville Jaguars and Pittsburgh Steelers

      Burt B: Jacksonville Jaguars and Los Angeles Chargers

      El Capitano: Tennessee Titans and Buffalo Bills

      Flan: Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans

      Shmurda: Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars 

The only team here I don’t see making the playoffs is those big bad Buffalo Bills. but you never know. I also don’t think any other team not-mentioned will end up making playoffs except for other chosen division winners in the Ravens and Chiefs.

NFC East Winner:

     Sauce: New York Giants

     Dimes: New York Giants

     Burt B: Philadelphia Eagles

     El Capitano: Philadelphia Eagles

     Flan: Dallas Cowboys

     Shmurda: New York Giants

I don’t know if most of us still have PTSD from the Super Bowl and don’t remember how good the Eagles were but don’t count out the Giants and Cowboys high powered offenses. And that Giant’s defense still has some power to it.

NFC West:

     Sauce: Los Angeles Rams

     Dimes: San Francisco 49ers

     Burt B: Los Angeles Rams

     El Capitano: Los Angeles Rams

     Flan: San Francisco 49ers

     Shmurda: Los Angeles Rams

Flan and Dimes love crack. I don’t see how the 49ers win this division. The Rams got really really good and could contend for the Super Bowl this year.

NFC North Winner:

     Sauce: Minnesota Vikings

     Dimes: Green Bay Packers

     Burt B: Minnesota Vikings

     El Capitano: Minnesota Vikings

     Flan: Minnesota Vikings

     Shmurda: Detroit Lions

Shmurda loves Matt Stafford so no surprise there and Aaron Rodgers is still elite so I can’t argue with Dimes here. But the Minnesota Vikings should be the favorite to win the division. Their defense is dominant and Dalvin Cook/Kirk Cousins should improve their offense.

NFC South Winner:

     Sauce: Atlanta Falcons

     Dimes: New Orleans Saints

     Burt B: New Orleans Saints

     El Capitano: New Orleans Saints

     Flan: Atlanta Falcons

     Shmurda: New Orleans Saints

I think it’s reasonable to have both of these teams winning the division and it will probably come down to head-to-head matchups. Both have high powered offenses and defenses have shown to be good at-times. Surprised no one said the Carolina Panthers!

NFC Wildcard Teams:

NFC Wildcard Teams:

     Sauce: New Orleans Saints and Green Bay Packers

     Dimes: Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Falcons

     Burt B: Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions

     El Capitano: Atlanta Falcons and Green Bay Packers

     Flan: Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints

     Shmurda: Green Bay Packers and Atlanta Falcons

The NFC is stacked and I could honestly say that all of these teams have the potential to make the playoffs. Teams I think could also make a move: Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys (who have been mentioned once)  and even those old Seattle Seahawks maybe?

NFL MVP Award:

      Sauce: LeVeon Bell, Pittsburgh Steelers

      Dimes: Tom Brady, New England Patriots

      Burt B: Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans – “He also did PED’s to recover from his torn ACL, but didn’t get caught and will come back and easily lead the Texans to the AFC championship”

      El Capitano: Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints

      Flan: Todd Gurley, LA Rams

      Shmurda: Tom Brady, New England Patriots

Personally I like all these picks. You got your obvious Tom Brady and Drew Brees. Surprise in Deshaun Watson, which could actually happen. And the two players I like most this year for this award in Bell and Gurley. Obviously there will be a few others in contention for this award though. And Burt assuming Deshaun did PEDs is so extreme it might be true.

NFL Rookie of the Year:

     Sauce: Derwin James, Los Angeles Chargers

     Dimes: Saquon Barkley, New York Giants

     Burt B: Saquon Barkley, New York Giants

     El Capitano: Ronald Jones, Tampa Bay Bucaneers

     Flan: Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens – “HUGE injury to Joe Flacco week 1, Ravens ride off into the sunset with Lamar”

     Shmurda:  Saquon Barkley, New York Giants

I love the Chargers this year and if they have a big year Derwin James will be a huge reason why. Saquon is a stud but we will see if he can stay healthy. Fuck Ronald Jones, Mr. Capitano. And I really like Lamar Jackson and think he should start over Flacco from Day 1.

AFC Championship:

     Sauce: Los Angeles Chargers over New England Patriots

     Dimes: New England Patriots over Houston Texans

     Burt B: Houston Texans over New England Patriots – “The Texans are primed for a run, Clowney and Watt at the front, with Deshaun running the offense… gonna be a good one, but I don’t think the pats Defense will hang on”

     El Capitano: New England Patriots over Houston Texans

     Flan: Houston Texans over New England Patriots

     Shmurda: New England Patriots over Houston Texans

I don’t know about the rest of these guys but personally I just can’t see the Patriots lose another Super Bowl and the NFC is stacked this year. Our defense and offense can not hang with the NFC (but who knows). I love the Chargers this year, I think their defense is elite, they picked up near the end of the season last year and it would be great to see Phil Rivers in the Super Bowl. I was the only guy to not have the Patriots-Texans AFC Championship match-up.

NFC Championship:

     Sauce: Los Angeles Rams over Minnesota Vikings

     Dimes: Green Bay Packers over San Francisco 49ers

     Burt B: Los Angeles Rams over New Orleans Saints 

     El Capitano: New Orleans Saints over Philadelphia Eagles

     Flan: Minnesota Vikings over Atlanta Falcons

     Shmurda: New Orleans Saints over Green Bay Packers

First off, bitter Patriots fans: only one of us has the Eagles making it to the NFC Championship, none to the Super Bowl. Dimes is very high on the 49ers and Jimmy G. Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers with a potential return to the Super Bowl. And how about them LA Football Rams. I got an All-Los Angeles Super Bowl. That would be great for football.

Superbowl:

     Sauce: Los Angeles Rams over Los Angeles Chargers

     Dimes: New England Patriots over Green Bay Packers

     Burt B: Houston Texans over Los Angeles Rams

     El Capitano: New England Patriots over New Orleans Saints

     Flan: Minnesota Vikings over Houston Texans

     Shmurda: New England Patriots over New Orleans Saints

And the Super Bowl Champion is…..either the Rams, Patriots, Texans, or Vikings, Now that would be a good bet either 4 of those teams win the Super Bowl versus the rest of the field. As stated before, I love the Rams this year, they got better on both sides of the ball and Goff and Gurley presumably got better themselves, they will be a tough team to beat this year. Watch out.

BOLD PREDICTIONS:

     Sauce: “The Philadelphia Eagles will finish in last place in their division. Super

Bowl hangover.”

     Dimes: “Tampa Bay Buccaneers go 0-16”

     Burt B: “Antonio Brown suffers the madden curse and plays a MAX of 5 games”

     El Capitano: “Jimmy G will finish Top 4 in QB Passer Rating”

     Flan: “Bengals, Seahawks, Broncos & Dolphins will all finish with 4 or less wins.”

     Shmurda: “Browns win 8 games”
