Who are everyone's picks for the playoffs?
Here are mine:
Arizona (someone has to make it in the NFC West)
Wild Cards: Dallas, Atlanta
I think Detroit has a shot (the schedule is quite favourable), as do the Giants, but not Tampa (hard schedule, strong division)
Houston (this is the year the Colts miss out on the playoffs for the first time since forever)
Wild Card: Pittsburgh, Miami
I really hope this is the year the Jets luck runs out on them, Sanchez is merely an average quaterback who got very lucky with interceptions last year. KC has a much harder schedule and the team is not that good. There is always one surprise team and I think it could be Miami in 2011.
As for Dallas, I think this is a transitional season for them. The OLine is young and inexperienced and there are holes in the D that need to get fixed next offseason. If they are lucky, they squeeze into the playoffs.
Please put your predictions in the Comments and then we'll see in January who wins the 2011 Nostradamus Award!
