Mod edit: One sentence deleted.Sean Payton is a good coach but the games are still played on the field and the Saints are returning the worst defense in NFL history.

There are a handful of NFC Super Bowl contenders but the 8-8 Saints aren't one of them.

Wow aren't you cool huh tough guy? It's called predictions... it's for fun... he's no "expert" and neither are you... why "waste" 30 seconds reading this only to waste another minute for a douche bag response and not even have any insight on who you feel are "better" choices?

LOL... Wow!!!! Seriously?

My apologies for hurting your feelings... that wasn't my intention. What makes me a tough guy? Because I don't agree that a team that gave up 6000000000 yards last season will win the Super Bowl?

Why even post predictions if you don't want feedback?

the NFC East seems to be all over the place

to me it will be either the Skins or Giants, with the runner up not getting a wild card. I dont see the Eagles or Cowboys competing for a playoff spot this year

I'm not very confident in a number of my picks. I'm also an unabashed Cowboys fan so I'm being overly optimistic, but since we have no idea how things are gonna play out, I'm assuming we stay relatively healthy. If we do, I don't think my prediction is too delusional. I also could see us at or below .500 and finishing last in the NFC East though, so who knows.
