2018 Season Predictions

This entry was posted by on Friday, 24 August, 2018 at

The lure of the Steel Balls Trophy beckons you! Will MWalsh be displaced?

It’s that time of year where Steel Ballers put their reputations on the line to make their season predictions. Let me remind you of the rules of engagement:

Rules:

  1. Lowest score wins.
  2. Points are based on accuracy. An exact prediction yields zero points.
  3. Categories include:
    • Final regular season record for each AFCN team.
    • Divisional positioning of AFCN teams.
    • Number of Steelers playoff wins (first round bye counts as a win)
  4. Tie breaker: first, accuracy of game-by-game predictions, then earliest submission

If you are too lazy to provide predictions in any of the above categories, you will get maximum points for that category.

Predictions will be accepted until Midnight ET September 8. You may change your predictions up until that time without penalty.

Good luck!

    Additional predictions: in 2019, all three Steelers division opponents will have new head coaches. Browns will start strong winning 5 of first 8 games thanks to inherent talent, but will then Browns their way into a hot mess losing out the final 8 games. Hue Jackson will be replaced by Todd Haley, who will celebrate by going to some dive East Cleveland bar, getting falling down drunk, and having his ass kicked when he mouths off to the wrong dude.

      If they win their division, they can’t seed any worse than 4th.
