A Glimpse into the 2011 Season According to a So-Called Expert: Jason King


The Sunday before Labor Day is a great day for football junkies and a horrible day for our wives, mothers, and children.  It is the last Sunday without football for 5 months. For the next six months, Sundays will be dedicated to football.  Fans will live and die with the ups and downs there teams experience through the season.

On the field the quest for the Lombardi Trophy officially begins this Thursday.  I am of the school of thought that predictions are worthless.  Experts all over the country make their prognostications on who will play in Super Bowl 46.  99.9 percent of us have no idea what we are talking about.  Well, for whatever it’s worth, here are my worthless predictions for the 2011 season.

  1. Ya know.. there are some women who love football. :D I may as well live on an island on Thursday night, all day and night Sunday and Monday night.

    Cause no one is interrupting me and my football!

    I think New Orleans will top the NFC South.
    Green Bay, Philadelphia, St. Louis

    AFC?
    Houston
    Pittsburgh
    NY Jets
    Denver

    Very much looking forward to your blog through the season..

  2. Come on really Jay? Dallas?!
    I used to think you were on the juice with your Washington picks of the past but, this Dallas pick must mean it was something much stronger. Dallas finishes in third place in the division and misses the playoff this year.

    • As you saw last night Dallas has all the ingredients to be a really good team. If Romo elevates his play the sky is the limit for this team. If he is pedestrain in the big moments like he was last night then the Cowboys go nowhere.
