My preseason predictions on this year's Super Bowl. Laugh.
New Orleans Saints and the Tennessee Titans.

Reggie Bush will be injured on the opening drive of game one, freeing the Saints from having to prove they didn't once again make a bad superstud running back pick, which will allow them to use the real talent on their team. They will go 1 -4, and then go 8-3 the rest of the season. This will win their sorry-ass division, and they will hit the playoffs where they will easily dispatch the Jason Garret-led Cowboys as a wild card, the division "champion" Phildelphia Eagles, and the Chicago Bears, who will be starting Ryan Leaf in his first game as their fifth quarterback, after Jake Plummer--or is it Jay Cutler?--goes down in game one to an errant spitball from the stands, and after the next three quarterbacks resign in unison during the playoffs for a lucrative deal performing in "Billy Mays: The Musical" in Vegas.

The Titans will go 0-4, then for no explicable reason whatsoever will win the rest of the games, roaring into the playoffs. They will have a bye week, defeat the Patriots in a nail-biter in Nashville when Kerry Collins goes down with three minutes in the fourth quarter, and Vince Young runs for three touchdowns on three possessions in three minutes to win 29 (two point conversion--also run in by Vince) to 28 as the clock runs out, and then will defeat the Miami Dolphins, who make the AFC Championship game via the wild card route after beating Norv Turner's Chargers (and who doesn't?), and the Pittsburgh Steelers (without Big Ben, who decides to quit football and run for Congress advocating a national mandatory helmet law after his second life-threatening accident).

The Saints win when Reggie Bush comes into the game in the final minute, takes a direct snap on his first touch, and runs 96 yards for the winning touchdown, wiping out Vince Young's six touchdown come-from-behind-in-the-fourth-quarter performance, and avenging through shear luck his Rose Bowl loss to Vince Young's Longhorns.

1. I can't believe you referred to the NFC South as a sorry ass division
Edited on Mon Jan-25-10 08:13 PM by JonLP24
especially before this season when last season it went: Panthers 12-4, Falcons 11-5, Buccaneers 9-7, Saints 8-8. If I recall correctly since Tampa's Super Bowl a different team has won the NFC South every season. I know the Bucs drag it down from last year but 13-3 -- 9-7 -- 8-8 makes it pretty tough. I don't know but I always considered it a tough and interesting division since Tampa won it all.

Interesting enough you were close on the Tennessee pick, they lost 6 straight, plugged in Vince and went 8-2.
