Go BOLD - 2022 NFL Bold Predictions


Recommended Posts

NFL wide

  • The Baltimore Ravens will MISS the playoffs
  • The Miami Dolphins will finish 2nd in the AFC East
  • The Raiders will win the AFC West
  • Odell Beckham Jr., will catch a TD pass in the Super Bowl

 

Bills specific

  • James Cook will lead the team in all-purpose yards
  • Dawson Knox will have over 800 receiving yards
  • Josh Allen will be the league MVP
  • The Buffalo Bills to lead the league in offensive touchdowns

 

I bolded the two predictions that I'd call bold. And saying the Ravens will miss the playoffs really doesn't even feel super bold to me on paper, if we ignore their past record of success under this regime. 

 

The other six predictions seem like decent bets depending on the odds. 

 

Okay, upon further review, predicting a specific, injured, unsigned WR will catch a TD in the Super Bowl IS bold. Even if that same player did this very thing last season...

League: 

- Jalen Ramsey will be asked 100 questions before the first game if he still thinks JA17 is still trash. He will respond with nice words and make some comment about that is why he is not a scout.

- Darnold will start the year for the Panthers though Baker will take over by mid year.

- Vikings will win the NFC North

- Bengals will return to the AFC Championship

 

Bills

- Gabe Davis will be a top 15 yardage receiver

- Bills will not be blown out by anyone this year and will be 3-3 (last year 0-6) in one score games

- Jordan Phillips will have at least 6 sacks

- buffalo Bills will be in the top 10 of YAC after being dead last a year ago

 

Bonus

- Sean McDermott will develop carpal tunnel from repetitive hand motion and blunt force trauma due to excessive clapping

Bills -

Bills beat the reigning Super Bowl champs by 30 week one

Josh Allen has four 1000 yard receivers ... Diggs, Davis, Knox, Cook

Tre' Edmunds will be a first team all pro

The Bills only punt once all season and punting God boots a 78 yarder that goes out at the 1.

 

League -

 

Pete Carroll gets fired mid season

Lions win the NFC North

Thursday night football ratings plummet

Tyreek Hill will whine a lot in Miami and look average catching Tua balls

As a result, 'dump Edmunds!' threads at TSW only appear every other week.

There's going to be a massive swing in emotions, unforeseen injuries/problems, and we're going to lose some games we should win.

 

Despite all that, for the third year in a row it will come down to a playoff game against KC at Arrowhead.

Not that bold, but 

 

NFL Wide

     Tampa again moves to the NFC Championship Game

      The Jets and Dolphins each win 8+ games

      Denver and Indy Make the playoffs

       Any Given Sunday, heavy on parity and competitive balance (Except for Atlanta)

 

Bills Specific

        Elam is a disappointment and ends up behind Jackson on the depth chart

        Cook is meh, no great shakes, Motor maintains high snap and carry percentage

        Epinesa and Basham do enough to stay in rotation and maintain percentage of snaps

        Bills get to the Divisional Round (It better be at home)

For something to happen three years in a row is unlikely so that's why I consider it a bold prediction.

 

I guess a bold prediction for the Bills would be they go undefeated at home this year.

Just having to play a playoff game AGAIN in KC will be disappointing.

I think the Bills to beat KC in the playoffs at some stage is a good bet.

 

I actually agree with @Doc Brown that to play in KC 3 straight years in the playoffs would be unusual enough that calling it would be relatively bold...........if only because it would be extremely frustrating result for Bills fans.

 

I can never get into the bold prediction threads anymore because there aren't really many people making bold predictions...........it's people who either totally don't get the bold part..........or just want to throw out a long line on an idea that they really don't expect to happen at all.........meaning they basically aren't predicting it.

 

Soon as you call the latter person on a completely jacked up prediction they try to hide behind "it was a BOLD prediction" meaning it wasn't a prediction at all. :doh:

4 League-Wide

1.  Broncos win AFC West

2. Ceedee Lamb leads WR's in TD

3. Baker Mayfield plays well enough that he is given a multi-year extension with Carolina 

4. Desmond Ridder is the starting QB for Atlanta after week 6.

 

4 Bills

1. Josh Allen is worthy of but does not make 1st or 2nd team all pro because the Bills running game takes a big leap.

 

2. Roger Saffold makes the pro bowl because of how much the offensive line improves the run game.

 

3. Bass-o-matic joins the 60 yard field goal club setting a new Bills field goal record.

 

4. Jamison Crowder catches the go ahead touchdown of SuperBowl MVP, Josh Allen, as the Bills win 30-21 over the Cowboys much to the media coverage's delight of interviews and shots of meltdowns by Jerry Jones in the press box.

Bills….I won’t do team based predictions for fear of jinxing

 

Bernard becomes something of a fan favorite 

 

Hodgins makes the team and scores 7 TDs 

 

Gabe Davis throws more than one TD

 

Mitch Morse retires after the season

 

 

 

NFL:

There are more ties in the first 6 weeks of the NFL than in any other full season.

 

Vikings win NFCN
 

DK Metcalf is traded at the deadline

 

Jacoby Brisset plays all year in a Luchador mask and the Browns are leading the AFCN.  In week 18 the mask is ripped off by TJ Watt revealing it has been a suspended Deshaun Watson the whole time.  The Browns forfeit all their wins.

BUFFALO

NFL:

- The Chargers will be the only AFC West team to make the playoffs. 3 AFC North teams will make it.

-Patriots end up with a top 5 pick in the 2023 draft.

-The Panthers with Baker Mayfield make it to the NFC Championship Game and Matt Rhule's job is saved

 

Bills:

-James Cook wins OROY

-Tavon Austin leads the NFL in punt return yards

-Oliver leads the team in sacks

-Basham has more snaps than Epenesa and Lawson combined

Agree with each of these.  I actually came in here to Boldly predict James Cook as AFC ROY.  But yours is Bolder.

 

OP predicted Kaiir Elam for interceptions.  But I think that would require Tre White to play most of the season, meaning teams throw to Elam's side.  And/or, because of our hella improved pass rush, Elam with his atheticism catches a lot of Kyler Murray-esque no-look passes.

 

Totally agree that Baker will ball tf out.  That boy got game.

 

I like the thinking that Oliver benefits most from having Von Miller
