    Pretty much everybody picked us to make the playoffs last year too. If I recall, the SB champs were returning most everyone and had a soft schedule.

    I think if you look at all the prognosticators they are all dead most of the time.

    I don't like King, but he's no worse at it than the rest of them.

    No, he is worse than most.

    I remember back in 2007, Peter King said the AFC East would be the best division in football. Then the Dolphins won 1 game, Jets 4 and the Bills 7.

    It's one thing to be wrong about individual teams, but to claim one division as the best in the league and then they end up being the worst that season? He's just horrible...

    I'm guessing you meant to say "dead wrong" here, but it was funny thinking about zombie sportswriters for a second.

    Peter King is the worst guy to ever give a prediction... whatever he says, do the exact opposite and you will make money.

    At first i thought he just wanted to get clicks but the guy is like Skip Bayless.. he just says stuff because he has too..
    1) Chidobe Awuzie - CB, Colorado.
    2) Tim Williams - LB, Bama.
    3) Josh Jones S, NCState.
    3 Comp) Isaiah Ford, WR - VTech.
    4) Kareem Hunt - RB, Toledo.
    5) Josh Dobbs - QB, Tenn.
    6) Greg Pike - G/OT, Georgia.
    7) Isaac Rochell - DL, ND.

    This King prediction isn't like the Madden curse, I hope.

    We actually do better when people say we suck. I wish he hadn't said that!


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    I dont know, its not like he picked us to win the SB. We still have room to exceed expectation.

    I think King is just trying to make an unexpected pick so he seems like a genius if it works out. and of course he can just bury it if it does not come to pass..

    He predicted us to be the worst of all of the playoff teams. Maybe that means we'll get top seed instead!
