2019 NFL bold predictions

I'm surprised that nobody brought up Mark Sanchez's bold prediction yesterday on Total Access that the Jests would go 13-3 ... only because they have the division already won and allowed the Bills to win the last game since they rested their starters.

 

My bold predictions are ...

  1. The Miami Dolphins win between 5 and 8 games, and aren't in running for the "tanking for Tua" sweepstakes after mid-season.
  2. The NY Jests DO NOT win 13 games ... maybe 9 but not double digits.
  3. The Bills fail to win 10 or more games for the 20th straight season.
  4. NFL DCs do not effectively figure out how to stop Lamar Jackson and the Ravens offense so the Browns and Ravens fight it out for the AFCN and both make the playoffs.
  5. Jameis Winston plays all sixteen games but the Jags win enough to lose out in the "tanking for Tua" sweepstakes by a hair.
  6. Marcus Mariota plays all sixteen games but the Titans win the "tanking for Tua" sweepstakes anyways.
  7. Kliff Kingsbury gets fired before the season ends when his "Air Raid Offense" crashes and burns despite the heroics of Kyler Murray, David Johnson, and Larry Fitzgerald.
  8. NFL DCs finally figure out Jimmy Garoppolo because he finally plays more than 5 games in a season ... and proves once again the genius of Bill Belichick in netting a high pick for another mediocre QB.
  9. The Seattle Seahawks re-emerge as the true power in the NFCW and serve Belichick and Brady with poetic justice with a goal line INT in the closing seconds to cement their second Super Bowl win under Russell Wilson who is named SB MVP.

 

What does Winston have to do with the Jags?

Nothing, except that I ALWAYS confuse the Bucs and Jags.  I don't know why.  I can't blame it on old age as I've been doing it for many years.   I'm usually excellent in geography (I once harbored aspirations to be a cartographer since I love maps) and I know where Jacksonville and Tampa Bay are ... I just always confuse their teams.  Mea culpa. 

 

PS - Thanks.  I fixed.

Cole Beasley will lead the Bills in receptions and yards.

 

Not saying you're wrong, but I'd prefer to see Beasley lead the team in receptions and not yards. I think his ceiling in this situation is 7-800 yards. I'd like to believe Zay, Foster, or Brown would have at least 1000.

 

Beasley is my favorite off season acquisition so this is no slight against him. I think he is "limited."

My BOLD PREDICTIONS:

1. Derek Anderson is cut, and Tyree plays third string. 

2. Gore is not on the team come September. 

3. Dion Dawkins does not start week one. 

4. Jake Fisher becomes #2 TE on the depth chart. 

1. Well, you're mostly right. I think he saw the writing on the wall.

2. Agreed. Picking Singletary in the 3rd means he's not around. Yeldon will likely be #3.

3. He has admitted that he didn't work hard enough last year. If he follows through with a commitment, he can be very good. We'll see.

4. #3 at best, IMO. You don't even want him on the field in passing situations, so #1 and #2 seem well out of reach for him. #2 belongs to Croom or Knox.

Here goes:

 

Devin Singletary will be the starting RB by game 7.

 

The Bills beat the Patriots not once but twice.

 

The Bills win the AFC East with an 11-5 record.

 

Tyree Jackson gets one start in 2019...and wins.

I like the Singletary prediction, but I think Shady is going to have a much better year than many are imagining. Still, Singletary will be looking good and we'll start running more to take advantage of him.

 

I don't think we'll beat the Patriots even once if Brady is healthy.

 

I wish, but I think 11 wins is still well out of reach for us.

 

I don't see Jackson starting or winning. He's a real project. That said, his ceiling could be really high and I hope they keep him on the final 53.

I ordered my bold predictions to get bolder as they went down. So, #4 is more wishful thinking than actual prediction. But, I kinda love the story, and the experiment. We know the guy is going to be good at blocking. He's spent his career stopping people, so it's an interesting perspective for him to know how not to be stopped. But here's where I'm really intrigued: he's essentially derailed his career to chase a dream, and he's clearly worked hard at it. He's dropped a bunch of weight, and done all he can to get his body right for the position. I have to believe he's been working on his receiving skills. You say, "you don't even want him on the field in passing situations," but what if he can actually catch the ball? It's really an assumption that everyone is making that it will be his bane, but clearly, he is putting in the work. Is it outside the realm of possibility that he succeeds, and becomes a true TE?

 

Also, regarding your comment on Yeldon: Since watching the limited coverage of the rookie mini-camp, I feel like adding a #5 bold prediction:

5. If I'm right, and Gore is not on the team come September, Christian Wade will become the #3RB. The more I watch of this guy, the more I am impressed. He cuts as well as anyone out there, but he is so strong! I think that in professional rugby you need a lot more upper body strength than you need as an NFL running back. But watching this guy's highlights (which obviously offer limited insights) he has such great acceleration, and looks like he can be a downhill runner who can also cut on a dime. Obviously, there are limitations transitioning from European Rugby to the NFL. But, I feel like this guy might have it. Shady, Singletary, Wade could be a helluva cool RB roster.

These predictions aren’t “bold” — they’re dumb.

r predictions:

1) Bills take division by winning last two games of year to catch and then pass Pats.

2) Browns are no better than 5 wins

3) Steelers win division running away without AB and Bell.

4) Jets are good but not because of Bell who is mediocre without Pitt line.

Why are they "dumb"?   Because you don't like that I don't see the Bills winning more than 9 games?  That I think that teams like Miami, the Jets, Cleveland, and Baltimore --   that TSW mavens all believe are trash -- are going to have decent seasons?   If you don't like my predictions, post your own -- which you haven't done yet.

Here was Winston yesterday, using his head as a golf tee

 

Seems like he's really getting ready to be a winner

Well, I guess he needed somebody to knock some sense into him, but that is probably not the best way to do it.

Big fight in one of the Jets games.

Multiple ejections, but we win the fights and the game.

Yes.

 

They have to be bold.... and picking the Bills not to win isn't bold and it gets fans here upset.😅

One of my bold predictions from page one of this thread was that Gore would not be on the team come September. I'm taking that back. Gore needs 522 yards to pass Barry Sanders for third all-time rushing yards. That's a tough row to hoe as a situational back, but I believe we're going to see him try.

 

Happy Birthday, Frank.

Harrison Phillips will win the Most Improved Player award(if the Bills give one out). He will play a ton this year. I feel he can rotate with Ed and Star. From the videos I've seen, he's played a lot of NT in a 3 man front and DT when 4 lineman were used. He is big and stout enough to spell Star and quick enough to spell Oliver. He led Stanford in tackles as a DT with over 100 tackles!!  This will be his 2nd yr in our system and should be stronger than last yr. Did I mention he led Stanford in tackles as a DT?!?!

Honestly, I get adrenaline and getting hyped, but every time I watch this I wonder if he is legitimately mentally handicapped...
