Man my preseason picks were terrible... Shows how much I knew about NFL at that point. I had some knowledge but didn't pay as much attention in the past few years as I did when I was young. If anything participating in this prediction league made me more knowledgeable on NFL. Not saying much but perhaps next year my preseason predictions will be better.

After not picking since week 2 or whatever I have somehow crawled out of last place. Idk how.

The standings you are looking at are for the bracket predictions everyone made before the season started. That means you've done terribly because you had a full set of predictions just like everyone else in those standings.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Wow, was not expecting to win. Looking pretty good in the prediction league thing too.

I like that touch Rol, you you capitalized the other chris name and not mine, very creative. This yoshi hater approves.

Not surprising, I might be wrong but I think both of my Super Bowl teams didn't even make the playoffs. Bengals/Cardinals.



Yeah...... I'm still salty about Dallas losing. Never getting over it. xD

Rol's super-duper power rankings

It's time to evaluate the four remaining teams. I'll skip the grade because all four teams have a good shot to win the Super Bowl and because it's obvious that the teams who host the championship games have an advantage.

1. New England Patriots

Tom Brady didn't look good under pressure and threw as many interceptions against the Texans as he did in the twelve regular season games he played combined. The good news: There isn't a defense as good as the Texans' left in the race and Brady still led the Patriots offense to 27 points despite first half struggles. The Patriots are a balanced team and have the best head coach in football. The bad news: Their defense is a bit overrated, because it didn't face many high-powered offenses this season. The three remaining possible opponents, however, all have dangerous offenses.

2. Atlanta Falcons

Statement win by the Falcons who had the game under control after Seattle had scored a TD on their opening drive. The Falcons defense is iffy, but the offense makes up for it by being able to win in shootouts. Matt Ryan is playing the best season of his career, Julio Jones is one of the best WRs in the game and the running back duo Freeman and Coleman make this a versatile and threatening unit.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers

What's a bit worrying is that Roethlisberger hasn't played well in most of the recent games. The good news is that he doesn't need to, because Bell can bail him out and lead the Steelers offense to success even when the QB plays mediocre. The defense is also looking good, so this team can definitely win games in different ways.

4. Green Bay Packers

I am not putting them at the bottom because I want to sell them short or because I like the role of the underdog, but rather because no other team in this list depends so much on a single player. Aaron Rodgers has been on a hot streak for two months now, but as the first quarter in the playoff game against the Giants showed, this offense doesn't get going without him. The ground attack has been patchwork this season and is merely supplemental; the passing game has to work in order for the running game to be worth anything. The defense can hold its own in stints, but not for half of the game, let alone the entirety of it. Cornerbacks are a weak spot and all remaining possible opponents are well equipped to exploit this weakness. If Rodgers continues to play out of his mind, the Pack can win the Super Bowl.

This week you can look forward to an NFC game without defensive prowess and an AFC game that hopefully delivers what the regular season meeting between the Steelers and Patriots couldn't.

Atlanta Falcons was the only team to beat my team last year during the regular season. As a Carolina Panthers fan, I have to say that I'm very very salty atm. I don't see Green Bay Packers beating them. Patriots are the only team left that can go toe to toe with Atlanta offense.

Same business as six years ago. Atlanta hyped as the heavy favorite, then get pummeled by Green Bay.

Wrong on both accounts.
