Anyway, here we go with this year's edition. As everybody knows, the NFL has new teams in and new teams out of the playoffs every year, so chalk picks just will not cut it. Shoot holes in these if you think you know better.
• North: Steelers
• South: Colts
• East: Patriots
• West: Broncos
• Wildcards: Bengals, Ravens
Comment: The conference will continue to be dominated by a couple strong teams in the Patriots and Broncos, with the Colts continuing to improve. I see bounce-back years for both Pittsburgh and Baltimore.
• North: Packers
• Wildcards: Bears, Cardinals
Comment: Problem with the NFC is that the best teams just beat the tar out of each other all season in the West. The Niners will drop off as will the Panthers. See the Cards continuing to rise and a good year for the Saints. Just too much offense.
Super Bowl Pick -- Patriots against the Packers. Aaron Rodgers wins league MVP, SuperBowl MVP and Hoodie Bill comes in second place once again. Maybe he should find a new way to cheat.
Thanks for reading.
