NFL Predictions, 2009

So I know that it’s a bit late to post my NFL predictions – you know, given that Week 1 has already gone down, and there are a myriad of injuries basically altering what everyone thought would happen – but I’ve been stupid-busy the last couple of weeks, and I haven’t had a chance to post them.

I hate when people do any type of prognosticating – predictions, fantasy football drafts – after the first week of the season. It’s like trying to predict what’s going to happen in a movie after watching it for the first 20 minutes – it cheapens the “glory” when you’re right, ’cause you got a head start.

So believe me when I say that these predictions were made on Wednesday, September 9th, before the Steelers-Titans season opener. Judging by some of these picks, you’d have to believe that I either did make these picks before that game, or I’m just completely oblivious to everything that went down in Week 1.

Without any further adieu, the my NFL 2009 predictions:
