Are You Game?

Another N.F.L. season is upon us and I am ready to make my predictions.

Looking ahead 16 regular season games and several playoff matchups from now, I pick the St. Louis Rams and the Miami Dolphins to go all the way to the Superbowl in January 2002.

Most of you are thinking ďRams? Okay, thatís a possibility, but the Dolphins?Ē

Hey, they have a decent squad. They did lose Trace Armstrong to the Raiders and Richmond Webb to Tampa, but they are a super talented team. They have a good corp of receivers and there is no controversy in the backfield anymore. This is a squad that is going to get better as the season progresses and find some luck in the playoffs. They will definitely turn some heads this season. While they will go on to the Superbowl, I donít think they are going to win it. I say Rams in a blowout.

Now that I have the big one out of the way, here are my season predictions. Starting with the National Football Conference.

Most of you people are Viking fans, so Iíll start with them.

I think the Vikings will go very far, but it all depends on their young running back, Michael Bennett from Wisconsin. This guy has speed. He won the Big Ten 100 yard dash last year which makes him a bonafide world class sprinter. And he only ran for a million yards at Wisconsin. This kid is slippery and he knows what to do in the open field. The Vikings air attack is basically guaranteed. The only teams to shut the Vikings down last year were Tampa Bay and the Giants in that sad performance in the NFC finals. Well, the Packers did beat the Vikings twice but I have long forgotten about that.

The Vikings should have an exciting season, but they will fall short of Tampa Bay in the Central Division, coming in second place. The Detroit Lions, who always seem to be struggling at the three spot, will stay at third.
Detroit and Green Bay will both miss the playoffs. Brett Favre is a good, used to be great, quarterback. But he is banged up so much, I just donít see the Packers competing for the top of the division, nor for a Wild Card spot unless he is 100% healthy.

The lowly Chicago Bears will fill out the fifth spot in the Central Division. They are a confused team and they will only be more confused this year.

In the N.F.C. East, I pick the New York Giants to win, followed up by the Washington Redskins, the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys and the Phoeni .....
