With the season a bit shy of half way I'd like to share my SB picks and see what my Forum friends pick.

 

From the AFC I think KC & Pitt. are the only true contenders. Yes Baltimore & Tennessee are solid teams but i doubt they make it. 

Steelers have been waiting for Pat's to decline and this is their year to not lay down and give the Rooney's and Rothlisburger a SB before he rides into the sunset.

 

From the NFC there's Brady, Seattle,  and Roger's. 

Brady's been waiting for years to show that it was him and not Belichek behind the dynasty. Actually it wasn't brady but rigging, but the narrative we will be told by the media is brady.

 

So I predict a Steeler vs Brady SUPER BOWL!!! 

The Football Gods would love that matchup. Along with the league, advertisers, networks, and media.:D

Brady will have to end the streak of home teams playing in SB no teams ever done that

Ravens vs Seahawks

 

Edit: Last year, I said Ravens vs 49ers and I got the NFC pick right, which might end up being KC vs Seahawks then. We will see.

Ravens, think Jackson gets in done in playoffs, KC will be right there, Colts wont be a tough playoff out by any means either, Buffalo a year away imo.

 

 

Bears their D gives everyone problems, Robinson having another very good year at WR (Maybe top WR no one really talks about much) already beat the Bucs and their schedule is easy down the stretch also which will allow a fresh roster into the playoffs.  Seattle has looked impressive and a lot of depth, Tampa wont go down easy and Drew looking to cap career in N.O. with one last run.

I think it’s funny because there is usually one surprise team so:

 

 

Titans v Bears

 

Titans win 14-10

 

Supposedly, the winner of two undefeated AFC teams with 5 or more wins typically makes the SB. So whoever wins the Steelers-Titans game makes the SB?? I remember in 2007, the Colts and Patriots were undefeated and the Patriots came to the RCA dome and beat the Colts 24-20 and both of them were at least 7-0 if I remember right.

It's early to predict the Super Bowl, but the Steelers look like they're headed to the playoffs. The Chiefs probably will make it, also. 

 

If both teams make it that far, I would like to see a Tampa-Chicago playoff, with Brady once again losing to Nick Foles. :D

So much gold in this post. LOL. I like the Steelers too. They are the most complete team in the AFC assuming Ben's elbow holds up. BTW, how do they keep finding great receivers in the draft?

 

I like the Bucs too assuming they can stay healthy. I agree Brady is on a mission and I don't think either GB or Seattle will be a match for them although the way Wilson is playing, who knows. He has been unbelievable. I can see why he wanted Brown so badly. That would have really giving him a full arsenal. Not that he needs it.

 

I think we are already seeing the dynasty was more Brady than Bill. It is always the transcendent player in my opinion, not the coach in any sport. The Patriot Way was really the Brady Way as you can already see the culture in Tampa transforming while New England has had turnovers in all of its games and is the 25th scoring offense. Edleman has only 3 catches per game in the last 3 games which is maybe most surprising even though he has been banged up.  Cam is just not a QB that will be patient and take what the defense gives him. Bill may be turning back into Cleveland Bill before season's end. LOL.

Long way to go, and more season-changing injuries are bound to happen, but right now I'd lean Steelers-Seahawks, with the Steelers winning it.  They're solid all the way around.

My heart said Chiefs vs Seahawks. Now my mind says Chiefs vs Bucs. Chiefs are a well rounded team and the Bucs are the most balanced team in the NFC right now, the Bears are a close second to me if Foles and that offense shows more on Monday Night. 

 

Without pass rush, the Seahawks and the Cardinals are going to have a hard time, IMO. Rams - Goff is mentally weak and can easily be flustered, he has shown that time and time again. 

 

Chiefs vs Steelers - AFCCG with the Ravens, Titans and Colts a tough out, IMO.

 

Bucs vs Seahawks - NFCCG with the Bears and Cardinals being a tough out, IMO.

I think you are overestimating the Seahawks and underestimating the Chiefs' physical nature they have showed against good teams too where they can run the ball well enough. That is why they added Le'Veon Bell, he will come in handy when they have a good tandem come playoff time. Mahomes will still make plays but they are putting a lot of good pieces around him. 

 

AFCCG will be Chiefs vs Steelers, that part I will agree.

 

Seahawks - their lack of pass rush, they just cannot get too far with that. Bucs are more balanced, IMO, and will make just enough plays to win a close game with Brady at the helm, IMO.

    • This may be the best football interview I have ever seen.  Must see for Colts, Packers or any other football fan!   Rodgers is the most candid I've seen and he's really funny.      
    • Correct. And we need to win that game because if we lose, it is highly unlikely we win the last 5, but I think it is likely they win at least 3 since they play Hou. Jax and a floundering Det.  And they may even be favored against Cle.  That leaves GB for them to upset to sweep into the playoffs and could make it very tough for us to get in at all with our tie breaker status.  This is the more important than any further game this season.  Win and our path to the playoffs is so much more wide open.  But we will still likely need to win at least 3 games to get in unless TN craters somehow.  Those tiebreakers are really going to challenge us in wildcard scenarios.    I could see Hou winning one against us, they usually do and they are on a major upswing.  Their offense is no joke and they do not depend at all on the run so our run defense is less effective obviously.  Pitt and the Raiders are also no joke and both games are away.  This is a critical one if we hope to win the division. If we lose, finishing 9-7 is realistically still in play and I don't see TN losing 3 out of 5.  In fact, I don't see them losing more than 2 of 5.  If we win they'll likely have to win 4 of 5 or sweep to catch us for the division.  I called the Raiders game as being key to make the playoffs and go 10-6 before the season started. With a loss, the desperate WC tie breaker situation, that is especially true.  It's possible for a 10-6 team to miss the playoffs even with the extra team.  Cleveland will almost surely get 10 wins with their easy finish.  Baltimore is also likely.  (Their divisional matchups are really favorable this time around).  Then again maybe we'll sweep the season and get the #1 seed.  Pitt still has to play 5 current playoff teams in their final 6 and KC has to play 3.     Just speculation as always, but that is the fun of a football message board.  Go Colts!
    • ^This^   Another way to look at it is this:  considering the production that Ballard is getting out of his draft picks while they're still on their rookie contracts... why over-spend on re-signing anybody?   If Ballard can continue hitting on draft picks the way he has, then it's almost better to just keep accumulating draft picks, draft well, and let the young guys go out and make plays.   Let other teams over-spend on proven talent while Indy keeps providing an opportunity for young hungry players to prove their talent.   Save the money for slam-dunk moves like Buckner.
    • I bet you are 1000% wrong.   Nelson is the biggest name in the league at G, and it's not even close.  A "bad" Nelson (that gets called for ticky-tack holds that happen on every single NFL play) is still better than 90% of the guards in the NFL.   Your hot-take posts are getting very tiresome.  
    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
