10 hard-hitting predictions for 2010


1. Whether with Jason Campbell or Bruce Gradkowski under center, the Oakland Raiders are playoff-bound for the first time since 2002.ROFL!


2. The New York Jets, everybody’s favorite to win the Super Bowl in July, start the season off with back-to-back losses at home to Baltimore and New England and ultimately fail to make the playoffs.


3. Green Bay's Jermichael Finley emerges as the league’s premier tight end in his third NFL season, catching 90 balls, scoring double-digit touchdowns, and winning millions of American men fantasy league titles nationwide.


4. Rex Grossman starts more games than Donovan McNabb in Washington and plays as well, if not better, than Kevin Kolb in Philadelphia.


5. Jordan Shipley emerges as a stud third receiver in the Bengals offense, putting together a breakout rookie season similar to the one Austin Collie had in Indianapolis last year.


6. The Bills finish with the league’s worst record and draft either Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett or Washington QB Jake Locker with the first overall pick in next April’s draft.


7. The 2010 AFC Pro Bowl quarterbacks: Peyton Manning, Philip Rivers and Carson Palmer. Tom Brady, Joe Flacco and Matt Schaub find themselves on the outside looking in.


8. Both receivers named Mike Williams — the rookie on the Bucs and one-time Lions draft bust now on the Seahawks — have big years for their respective teams, proving their respective critics wrong.


9. Of all the big-name rookie safeties in the NFL this season — Eric Berry, Earl Thomas, Nate Allen, Taylor Mays — it’s Cleveland’s T.J. Ward who has the best first-year campaign.


10. Everybody’s darlings, the Houston Texans, fail to qualify for the postseason for the ninth straight year.

Looks like the only one he got right was the Texans not making the playoffs again. Although, I guess the Bills scenario could still come true.

Shipley has made some noise for the Bengals. Unfortunately for them, the Bengals THEMSELVES have been quiet...
