Default Miss 2012 play offs

I forget the number, but every year there is turnover concerning who makes the play-offs, & who doesn't.

So, I ask you now, which 2011 play-off team will miss the 2012 post season?

Bengals and Broncos look to be the obvious. I think Chicago & Philadelphia will make the playoffs next year in the NFC, which would leave another two teams out in the NFC. My guess is Atlanta and either New York or Detroit.

Default Re: Miss 2012 play offs

Depending on what Cincy does with those picks they ripped Oakland off for, they could really improve their team. I'm not ready to say they won't be back.

If one assumes a healthy J. Cutler and a re-signed Matt Forte I can see Chicago battling Detroit for the wild card.... maybe even GB for the division lead.

The NFC East will send two; right now I'm thinking Philly and NY. Mainly because I detest the cowpies and Shanny Sr. ain't done crap since he lost Kubiak. ...check the record. 13-3 during Kube's last year there (and that's with Jake Plummer too); no better than 9-7 since. ...just sayin'.

So my list of "won't be back next year" teams is
Atlanta - their D is getting old.
Detroit - assumes a resurgent Bears team
Baltimore - that's only if Lewis and Reed get SB rings and both decide to hang it up.
Denver - IF SD wakes up and plays the whole season next year.

Default Re: Miss 2012 play offs

Alright...I'll take this smallish limb to climb onto. Baltimore has had it after this year. I suspect a shocker in Foxboro next week and with that Ray Lewis and Ed Reed will take their ball and go home after the SB.

Like Obsiwan, I'm not willing to say Cincinnati either. The Broncos, ditto, due to the division they're in. The Giants? Well, it's seems to me all in the NFC East all have their issues and the Giants....not as much. I can't rule them out either. We'll see if Philadelphia can get their act together.

Soooo, I'll just take the limb I crawled onto and say the Ravens are most likely to miss. As for who would take the vacant spot? That's another promlem with the theory. Maybe Tennesse or Miami but that just doesn't sound right yet.

My super-absurdly-early dartboard predictions:

Jets are in... but this is mostly due to the lack of wild-card competition and Buffalo sucking and some fancy footwork by Rex.

AFC North sends 2. Pitt winning the division, whether it's Baltimore or Cincy getting in, I haven't decided yet. Either way, someone's getting arrested.

Chargers get their heads out of their asses long enough to win the division with 9 wins. Rivers then Tebows on the Broncos logo in the season finale.

For the first time in forever, the NFC West sends a wild-card to the playoffs if Seattle picks up a quarterback. Really, any quarterback will do. I heard Rick Mirer is looking for a job.

Another black QB wearing a light-blue #1 jersey gets his team to the playoffs. Then proceeds to not win in the playoffs.

God decides to end the Breesus v. Tebow debate by cloning Brett Favre, and makes him start for both the Broncos and Saints in week 10.

Dom Capers is hired by the Oakland Raiders as their new head coach. Raiders fail to score 20 points in a single game*. Oh wait, that's normal.

World* ends in December from black hole forming at ESPN Studios when Andy Reid makes a guest appearance. Eagles named Eternal Dream Team.



*Except Buffalo.

The Giants had a ton of injuries this season, especially on defense, mainly the secondary. Many of those happened during the preseason and I pretty much wrote them off before the season started. Also they made some major changes on the O line and they lost Kevin Boss and Steve Smith to FA.

I was shocked that they started off so good despite all of that however all of that finally caught up to them when they played that murderous stretch of games that included Green Bay, New Orleans, San Fran, Philly, and New England. They went 1-4 in that stretch.

Now what we are seeing is many of those guys have finally returned and the offensive line is finally starting to gel. Also also the tight ends and receivers corps are finally stepping it up to where neither Boss nor Smith are being missed.

The Giants when healthy are extremely solid on both sides of the ball. What happened this season is they started getting healthy at the last possible moment of the season to still do something. A week later and they would have been finished.

There is no reason the Giants won't be strong again next season if they are healthy. They should be favored in the NFC East.
