Like every other person who does a blog on the NFL, we will be stupid enough to give our predictions on who makes the playoffs and who does not.  I know this is late considering the first game of the season has already happened, but it didn’t change the playoff outcomes at all, and frankly we could care less.  We will also give our predictions for the conference championship games and the Super Bowl.  There’s usually around a 50% turnover in playoff teams each year.  In order to give ourselves a cop-out clause as well, we will also list ‘sleeper’ teams (a.k.a. teams we didn’t pick but want to mention just in case they do so we look better).
