Well, the preseason is winding down and the regular season is looming in the near future. We now have a decent feel for which players are on the rise, and which will plummet to their demise (wow, unintentional rhyme). In the spirit of the offseason and preseason, and its deficiency in football related news, I would like to announce the bold predictions competition.
The premise is the following: Make 5 bold predictions about the Eagles or the NFL as a whole.
An example of a prediction: "Jack Ikegwuono will be better than Asante Samuel this season"
At the end of the season, we can check this post and see who is a football mastermind, and who was completely and utterly wrong. Of course, it goes without saying that the more wild your prediction is, the more "credit" you will get down the road. Maybe at the end of the season we can have a vote on who has the most gridiron foresight.
I will begin with my 5 predictions.....feel free to judge my stupidity.
1.) Statistically, Aaron Rodgers will have the best season as a quarterback in 2009.
2.) The Eagles will be #1 in the entire NFL for offensive yardage.
3.) NFC Championship Game: Eagles 23 - Packers 14
4.) Rex Ryan will be named best rookie head coach of the year.
5.) Jason Campbell will get injured for a significant period of time, if not the entire season.
Remember folks, these are supposed to be bold predictions, so they will appear ridiculous. However, you will look like a genius if you prove to be correct. Please rec this post so it stays relevant long enough for people to get their predictions in. Good luck.
