WEEK 1 Predictions

Recommended Posts

I think I'm 9-6 on the year if memory serves.  I missed mostly the difficult (on paper, anyways) picks, like New Orleans over Minnesota, Tennessee over Oakland, and Cincinnati over Baltimore.  Upset losses like the Chiefs over the Patriots and Jaguars over the Texans have also cost me as well.  The other game that I got wrong was the Giants and Cowboys, and even then, I didn't even know that OBJ was out for that game.  Had I known he would be, I would have switched my picks on that game, especially given the free time that I had.


On the plus side, I did get to witness just how dominant the Jaguars, Rams, and Ravens looked in their week 1 opener, so there is definitely some points for optimism.  Granted, it's equally possible that the Texans, Colts, and Bengals are simply atrocious as well, but still.  To my knowledge Jared Goff didn't throw a single interception, and the Rams dominated in every single phase of the game.  The Jaguars' defense looked brutal as well, as did the Ravens.  I bumped them all up a little bit, but I chose not to keep them terribly above their collective tiers because, again, it was the teams they've beaten and given the circumstances; got to wait and see.


Also, without Andrew Luck, it looks like the Colts could possibly rival the 49ers and Jets for being the most atrocious teams in the entire league.  And it's possible that Luck might be out until October!?  At least in defeat, the Browns and Bears actually looked like they gave a crap about winning and did everything in their power to pull away with major upsets that week.  THOSE three teams look like they have next to no talent on any level this season.  Well, okay, maybe a little bit of defense for the 49ers as well as a running back.  And no, the Jets scoring 12 points against the Bills doesn't cut it, either; the Bills kind of sucked, too, and they are expected to suck.


It's getting a bit more clearer which teams look good and which teams are not.  But, since it is Week 1, don't expect teams like the Rams or Jaguars to skyrocket in the rankings.  Though where the teams in the current top 20 reside is a bit tricky to pinpoint.

      Congratulations, Philadelphia Eagles for ending your 57-year championship drought and taking Super Bowl LII.
      Might as well start this new thread for a new season, since Maynard seems to have vanished off the face of the earth at around the time of the Super Bowl.  Hope he's doing well.
      So discuss the current NFL season here.

      Hey guys, I almost feel bad for coming here and asking a bunch of questions. I've lurked the boards for a few months and finally have some time to set aside to ask some things. Please don't be offended by my newbiness. 
      A group of friends and I want to SIM football. We are Simmers, mostly we SIM Fire Pro Wrestling  (before Returns and now Fire Pro Wrestling World). That community is much like this one, we've been making new memories using our favorite classic game (which is now having a rebirth with this new steam version). 
      Essentially we want to start out with the original 32 teams and rosters, pick our teams and simulate the games (one person would likely do the simming from their PC) the results would be posted. And we would come up with all kinds of other storylines and stuff that would make it more of an interactive story. We also want to track stats, assign awards etc, and then draft players and start a new season.
      Is this possible with TSB? 
      If so, would anyone be able to point me in the direction of the stuff we need? I'm a bit overwhelmed by it all, and I want to make sure I get the right mods etc.
