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.

    • By now most should realize the Colts prefer to retain their own as much as possible.  The defense is much improved with the signing in place but always room for improvement at key positions.  Below is my FA/resign list have already put together mid-season.   Colts FA ~58m: QB Jacoby Brissett 21.3 WR T.Y. Hilton 14.5 TE Jack Doyle 8.5 RDE Denico Autry 5.7 ILB Anthony Walker 2.2 S Tavon Wilson 750k DB Tremon Smith 750k (keeper?) WR Marcus Johnson 582k (practice squad) S Malik Hooker 4m WR Ashton Dulin 542k   Resign ~ 90m QB Philip Rivers 26.3m (probably will drop) DE Justin Houston 11m (3-4 good years left like Mathis and Freeny) DB Xavier Rhodes 8m RG Mark Glowinski 6.9 (improved game this year) RDT Grover Stewart 7.5m (most improved player on defense) DE Al-Quadin Muhammad 3m OL Le’Raven Clark 1.2m DB T.J. Carrie 1.2m (special teamer) TE Trey Burton 4.5m S George Odum 1.25 TE Mo Alie-Cox (RFA) – 6.25m DT Taylor Stallworth 1m (otc hit 4.8m in 1 game) LT Chaz Green 850k (special teams) WR Zach Pascal 7m RB Marlon Mack 4m (when healthy proved to be lead back) C Joey Hunt 300k RG Jake Eldrenkamp 200k (special teamer) Edge Cassius Marsh 250k (special teamer) TE Farrod Green 200k (practice squad) S Ibraheim Campbell 200k (special teamer)
    • Originally was thinking we would be closer to 100 mil in cap space but sounds more like 75 mil.  Kind of why for this example only budgeted ~40 mil for FAs after calculating ~95 mil to resign players while leaving a minimum of 20 mil to sign draftees.  This should still allow discretionary cap space for the Club to do as needed short-term.
    • I still have Patrick Jones II at the top of my early 2021 NFL Draft Board.  Would be happy to acquire either Weaver or Jones.  Other top names have seen but truthfully haven't been impressed with them as have been with these two players at RDE.
    • No one gets stoned anymore in civilized societies!   Wait, that didn't sound right...
    • We will need to hire a crime scene cleaning company to extract all the Titans' blood from the field turf at Lucas Oil Stadium
