****, IW has the Ravens beating the Patriots in the playoffs. I think you are on crack. Sorry, but with a QB like Kyle Boller they will barely be a wild card team. The Pats are good enough to win even with two key coordinators gone and two good LB's out. They will find a way to win. And unless Vick decides on becoming a decent QB any time soon I don't see them getting past the Eagles in the playoffs. Yes, Manning is a great QB, but he needs to prove to everyone he can win in big games. He's shaping up to be another Marino. See what I'm getting at. The QB is the key ingredient in a winning football team.

I say the Pats are lucky if they go 10-6 this year and they most definitely will NOT have home field advantage. This is the year that all the luck runs out.

Last year, my 'bold' prediction that the Eagles wouldnt even make the playoffs... didnt work out very well mayn.
This year, my certified 100% guarenteed prediction is San Diego will go 14-2, but lose to the Jets again in the 2nd round of the playoffs. Seattle and Atlanta in the NFC championship. Atlanta vs Pittsburg in the Super Bowl, Atlanta winning it all.

Yeah we all remember that philly predictionOriginally Posted by sage
IW I like your predictions up until the last game. Philly over Indy. In fact today I'm putting in for time off so I can head to downtown philly for the parade.
08-24-2005, 01:08 PM
Okay, the crack is wearing off now. My decision was based on the Ravens going that far in spite of Boller, they did win it with Dilfer and they got Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, Jamal Lewis, Todd Heap, Ed Reed on defense. They also added Derrick Mason, Mark Clayton, and Dan Cody. Plus, there's alwasy that team which overachieves each year. San Diego was that team last year and I doubt they'll be better than 8-8 this year.Originally Posted by natedogg
Sage, you really had to be on crack for your prediction a year ago

If one of you crazy Philly fans breaks Peyton Manning's arm than you're winning it that's not a far fetched possibility eitherOriginally Posted by jminis

The patriots will be 4 time super bowl champions. There are about 3 good teams in the nfc and they will beat them all like a red headed step child.

Vick is the most over rated QB in the game. He is a QB and isn't comfortable throwing the ball. They had an easy schedule last year and the nfc was horrible on top of that. If Atlanta was smart they would follow what the eagles did with McNab. Until then Vick is a running back that can throw the ball. The problem is when you take away the run and make him throw the ball he sucks. That's pretty much what the eagles did to them in the play offs.If Atlanta is playing indoors during the playoffs....say hello to Vicks first SB ring.

YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF FOOTBALL IS HURTING....VICK HAS THE HIGHEST WINNING PERCENTAGE OF ANY QB IN THE NFL'S HISTORY SINCE HIS COLLEGE DAYS.....WHO CARES IF HE CANT THROW,,,,HE GETS THE JOB DONE AND A "W" IS A "W".Originally Posted by VanillaGorilla

Not against good teams he doesn't and how many super bowls has he won? Tampa F'n bay beat them last year for god's sake. On top of that most of the nfc was 8-8 last year. WOW they made it into the play offs where most teams are 8 -8 , your right he is the greatest QB ever. Since your knowledge of football out weighs mine what is Vick's QB rating? The last I checked it wasn't very good. Seeing that he hasn't won the super bowl what has Vick accomplished in the NFL? Has he broken any of Marino's records? Nope. The only thing he is going to break probably is the most rushing yards by a qb. Every game he runs for 60 + yards and is some thing like 10 out 20 for 150 yards. That is not a good QB. Also if he keeps running the way he does sooner or later he is going to take a hit that puts him out of the season if not longer. He has the potential to be a great QB like McNab or other decent running QBs but until he calms his feet down and learns to throw the ball he isn't as good as people say. I am tired of people going nuts about him when he hasn't proven to be the QB every one said he will be. Every week Vick is going to have his "break out" game and every week has passer rating is average at best. Which makes him a running back that can throw. If the NFC gets better and/ or their schedule gets harder they are not going to be as good as the Vick true believers think he is. The way people talk about him he should be throwing for 400 yards a game, rushing for 100, and have a 100 qb rating. Vick is the most over rated QB in the game.YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF FOOTBALL IS HURTING....VICK HAS THE HIGHEST WINNING PERCENTAGE OF ANY QB IN THE NFL'S HISTORY SINCE HIS COLLEGE DAYS.....WHO CARES IF HE CANT THROW,,,,HE GETS THE JOB DONE AND A "W" IS A "W".

College is not the NFL. Chris Weinke kicked ass in college, where's he at ? Vick has started for 1.5 years. If he's winning at this rate for another 5 years than the highest winning percentage claim is validated.Originally Posted by oswizzle

Vick is 23-12-1 as a NFL starterOriginally Posted by oswizzle
Damn next year Matt Leinart will be the winningest QB in NFL history since college!!!!
Did some math since my last post
Since 2001(Vicks first start)

IW - I know you are a Niners man too, but come on! Boller sucks. He's WORSE than Dilfer. Dilfer could at least not lose games. No way the Ravens go that far with him at QB.
Sadly, I think we'll have the top pick again.

I remember seeing a stats breakdown in comparison of Vick's numbers in the playoffs with Brady's and there wasnt much of a difference at all, completion percentage, yards, td/int ratio.... I'll try and dig em up. But numbers dont matter unless theyre in the win column. And Vick has done that with a very poor team. He also runs so much because last year his o-line gave him an average of about 2 seconds to throw the ball. Im so sick of hearing how great Tom Brady is when his defense has carried his ass all these years. All Im saying is without Bruschi, without their coordinators they will not be the same team. For a team to have as much success as theyve had these recent years the ball has to bounce their way a lot. There for I call it luck. I also predict a down year for the almighty Brady.

Me too, Smith looks like he's got absolutely no passing touch or confidence in his teammates. I still believe they should have taken Braylon Edwards this year and Matt Leinart next year maybe you're right about the Ravens, but my gut tells me they'll be the team that overachieves this year, primarily because Boller doesn't have to do anything special as long as Jamal Lewis is healthy.

Brady owns the best record of any active quarterback with at least 16 starts, compiling a 48-14 regular season record for a .774 winning percentage. The mark also gives him the best winning percentage of any quarterback during the Super Bowl era among players with at least 40 career starts, eclipsing the records of Roger Staubach (85-29), Joe Montana (117-47) and Donovan McNabb (56-23).

Brady beats vick there too.Brady owns the best record of any active quarterback with at least 16 starts, compiling a 48-14 regular season record for a .774 winning percentage.

And Vick has done that with a very poor team. He also runs so much because last year his o-line gave him an average of about 2 seconds to throw the ball.
Didn't you just say numbers don't matter, it's just the wins? 3 super bowls in 4 years isn't luck and he is a hell of a lot better player than vick.To win games you need a good offense, defense, sp teams ect not one player that some people believes can walk on water. There is talk about Brady's shoulder not being 100% which isn't good, their schedule is tough, and the loss of Ted and Ted isn't good either. That being said they are the team to beat in the AFC. They said they wouldn't beat the colts.Im so sick of hearing how great Tom Brady is when his defense has carried his ass all these years. All Im saying is without Bruschi, without their coordinators they will not be the same team. For a team to have as much success as theyve had these recent years the ball has to bounce their way a lot. There for I call it luck. I also predict a down year for the almighty Brady.

Hate on Vick all you guys want I hear this crap from the fantasy football forums all day and its all blah blah blah....Micahel Vick wins period...Peyton Manning broke a record and just Like Marino he hasnt won **** and look at his running back and recivers....Vick has one of the worst O-Lines....****ty pip squeak running back,,,,,and Nobody at the Wide position....yet he still wins. the guy was healthy all year and they made it to the NFC championship and he was trying to learn the West Coast Offense,,,,McNabb said it took him 3-4 years to get it down,,,once Vicks learns that offense,,,,you guys will all be on Vicks nutts. (just make sure you got rubber suit on so you dont catch the "Ron Mexico") I heard its kinda crazy. Brady is gonna be so Average this year without Charlie Weis,,,you lil Pat fans ur win streak is done,,,,your team is gonna suck ass this year.
08-25-2005, 09:23 AM
Damn, Brady sucks pretty bad huh. If I were any other QB in the league I wouldn't mind sucking that bad. Must be all of that luck. Vick is overrated, but he is exciting to watch and has a pretty spiral, I'll give him that.
