2. Don't understand how this can happen. If he serves a suspension, the league wins, and it's over. If he doesn't, he/NFLPA wins, and it's over. Isn't it? I guess there's always the problems generated because nobody's killed all the lawyers, but I don't really see how this stays anywhere near the front burner.

5. $13mil dead in '16, $2mil in '17. I'm betting they keep him for this year and next.

This wasnt a lets pick at predictions, and I am not trying to be right on every one.

well Brady is considering suing the league, which I dont think would be resolved in a week.

As far as APs contract, I think you and I are reading it differently.

I look forward to reading your predictions :)

Sorry, don't know what the point of predicting is if not for discussion (and to be correct).

well Brady is considering suing the league, which I dont think would be resolved in a week.

#5 is for Cutler, not AP.

I look forward to reading your predictions :)

Not gonna happen. I don't want them picked at, and I'm not that confident in my knowledge of the future. :)

The Dolphins had to shed a lot of talent to fit Suhs massively insane contract under the cap.. there is no way they are going to the SB. I will say this though, for Dolphins fans sake they better win the SB this year, because Suhs contract is going to be an anchor around that franchises neck.

Agree with most of these, except I might go out on a limb and say Winston may surprise people in his rookie season and get the Bucs up to as good as 8-8. And as to Philly regrets hiring Chip, I don't think that's necessarily going to be true, but I think that Bradford for Foles deal is gonna bite them in the ***. As to the Cardinals winning the west, could happen but they'd better hope the QB injury curse stops.

thats the 2nd time I've seen the Dolphins predicted today to go to the SB

Yeah, I just don't see that happening. I like Philbin, but 8-8 seems to be the maximum distance that he and Tannehill can go together as QB and coach. I kinda like the Greg Jennings acquisition and think he could do better in Miami than he did in Minny, but I don't think he's going to return to vintage Greg Jennings that we saw in the 2007-2011 years here. And I must agree, while Suh and Wake do make a tough force up front, that contract is what made a lot of other teams stay away from him. When not even the Bears want to go after him, that's a problem.

Given that it's just a prediction and any individual teams likelihood is far greater to not make the Super Bowl than to make it, I must ask; who do you actually see making the Super Bowl?

I don´t know which teams are going to play in the Super Bowl but I don´t even have the Dolphins as one of the eight teams having a realistic chance to make it to Santa Clara.

GB wins 75% of games Rogers is healthy for

Wilson takes a significant step back

AP gains less than 1500 yards, Minny goes 9-7

Chicago implodes

Detroit makes the playoffs at 11-5

AZ wins the West

Dallas wins the east and challenges GB as the best team in the NFC (if Romo stays healthy)

Indy makes it to the SB

Manning proves to have played a year too long

Johnny who?

Pack goes 11-5 and wins the division.
Seattle's offense gets much better with Graham and they roll through the playoffs and go to a third straight Super Bowl.
Pack's luck with injuries in 2014 doesn't continue but Rodgers stays healthy and they go back to the NFC championship again.
Peppers plays ok for his age but doesn't create a pass rush anymore.
Pack starts out slow due to injuries suspensions which costs them HFA.
Offense stays top notch. Special teams improve up to average and the defense is average.

That was merely a tongue in cheek change of pace prediction.
I don't really believe they will.
However, I believe #2 and #3 to be high possibilities.
#3 is not wishful thinking, but if the Packers were to bring home another Lombardi, it would set the perfect stage for Ted's retirement given his age.
