    The prediction league is back!


    The rules
    - Predictions must be made before kick-off!
    - Prediction of scores is not neccessary. Just pick the winners.
    - If you change a prediction, please use a NEW POST. If you start editing your posts it will be hell for me to keep track of everything.
    - Players will be ranked by correct prediction percentage, so missing a week or two won't kill your chances to win the whole thing.
    - To be in the final standings, you must predict a minimum of 13 weeks (>75% of total).


    WEEK 1
    THURSDAY
    Miami at Pittsburgh
    SUNDAY
    Atlanta at Carolina
    Baltimore at Tampa Bay
    Buffalo at New England
    Cincinnati at Kansas City

    I also switched my Miami-Pittsburgh pick given the Roethlisberger situation

    Charlie Batch played well in the pre-season, and Miami still has to get past Pitt's defense at home. I'm sticking with Pitts.

    Foolish children, Miami's defense will make Steelers fans wish for Tommy Maddox. The Chaz cannot stop Saban and his Army of the Underworld...

    Yes! Prediction league is back. You do good work Darkness.

    -MIAMI at Pittsburgh- No Ben, Hines, and Dolphins are better anyway
    Edit: whoops, did not mean to post
    -Atlanta at CAROLINA- ATL's fake D is no match for panthers explosive offense. By "fake" I mean, ie they have a defensive line full of stars, but all they can do is rush the passer. No good run stuffers make the pass rush useless. Vick is no match for D.
    -BALTIMORE at Tampa Bay- Age will catch up to the D finally, and Steve McNair will lead them to a win.
    -Buffalo at NEW ENGLAND- The Patriots veteran defense will dominate the Bills young offense. Will be interesting to see how Brady will do against a great secondary but a weak pass rush.
    -CINCINNATI at KC- With retirement of Willie Roaf, Trent Green will find himself with less time to throw than he's used to. Bengals will dominate poor defense. Also, KC has new coach.
    -DENVER at St. Lewis- Steven Jackson may have a good game, but Denver is better in about every way, and matches up better at each position.
    -NEW ORLEANS at Cleveland- None of Clevelands (starting) linebackers have played before together, and only 2 Dlinemen. Will have a hard time guarding against playmaking Reggie Bush while having to keep an eye on Deuce, who has taken over games in the past. It took entire team efforts to stop Bush in college, not individual starts, which cleveland has too many of on their defense with a lack of experience with eachother.
    -NYJets at TENNESSEE- Obvious choice here. Jets will have No. 1 overall pick next year. Two new starting OLinemen, terrible RB situation, bad D, only strength in entire team is Johnny Vilma, and he can't do it himself.
    -PHILLY at Houston- Philly will be back. Won't make playoffs, but with the injuries gone, emergence of Reggie Brown w/ proven Donte Stallworth, McNabb will again put up TO times #'s. Houston is in middle of rebuilding phase.
    -SEATTLE at Detroit- Seattle has a defense that can pounce on weak opponents, which is what we have here. Shaun will have a field day against Detroit.
    -CHICAGO at Green Bay- Bears have sick run defense. Will shut down run, then overconfident Favre will come out slingin it, the Bears pass rush will get to him, and he'll throw a dozen interceptions. Nathan will collect a few. Will Peanut Tillman start again after that playoff game against the 89 show?
    -Dallas at JACKSONVILLE- Matt Jones and Reggie Williams will prove themselves to be solid recievers, though they won't put up huge numbers. Mercedes will be a great target for Byron Leftwich. Defense will shut down Dallas' running game.
    -San Fransisco at ARIZONA- Potent Arizona offense will burn the 49ers horrible defense. Alex Smith will do allright, but can't win them the game.
    -Indianapolis at NYGIANTS- Only a matter of time before Eli passes Peyton, not statistically, but it's clear Peyton can't get it done in the postseason, but maybe Eli can. Run stoppers Lavar Arrington, Antonio Pierce will shut down running game, then Osi and Micheal Strahan will procede to sack the guts out of Peyton, giving him Deja Vu of Steelers game.
    -Minnesota at WASHINGTON- Washington's passing attack could be great if they had a good QB, but they don't, so it will be the running game and the defense that will beat Minnesota.
    -SAN DIEGO at Oakland- LT will destroy the weak Raiders defense. Will be close, but SD will pull it off.
