Well keep in mind that all reporters try to shed a realistic light on things. They have to make their assessments based solely on the numbers from last year. In other words, they are the original 'buzzkills' or 'party poopers' of the NFL. We've all seen over the years how a team can go from the cellar of the NFL to the playoffs. Also, we all know that in the NFL all the prognosticators and analysts and experts have as much of an idea about who'll do well this season as the guy working the drive thru at McD's. Some of the predictions from last year were that Oakland and the Eagles would be in the SB, and some even predicted the Chargers would win the wildcard. Some thought the Ravens would be at or near the bottom of the AFC North with the Bengals. So as much as we'd all like to think if we crunch the numbers correctly, and factor in so and so we can come up with an accurate predicition as how we will fare, but it just isn't going to happen. So take what a sportswriter says with a grain of salt, because nobody flip flops better than a local sports writer. It goes from a sensational doom and gloom attitude to a 'hand us the title now' type attitude.
