Alot of people jumping on that Chargers bandwagon! 

Looks like a load of BS to me.

I just wasted 10 minutes of my life going through that. Terrible.

As a Giants fan, their ceiling is 7-9 which is what this simulation has them at. But, they have them losing by 3 TDs to the Bucs but beating a superior Packers team 13-3 with a rookie at QB by that point, mind you.

They have the Eagles winning the division at 8-7-1 and everyone else in the division is 7-9. The Giants only win 1 division game, so they go 1-5 in the division and 6-4 against the rest of the league?

This doesn't add up.

I was somewhat high on the Chargers, but think they're making a big mistake playing hardball with Melvin Gordon. He's one of their best offensive weapons and now he's been granted permission to arrange a move to another team. Pay the guy and for the Super Bowl! Rivers is going to show his age soon, so make the push now, especially with a new stadium coming next year and seats to sell.

I shudder to think that the Lions are that bad that they'd start the season 0-12, I may just have to adjust my preseason prognostication from 8-8??!!

It's all in good fun these simulations.

Like I said in the Zeke thread, RB has never been less relevant. Matt Breida is a top 10 NFL back when healthy. He makes less than $700,000 per year. They should spend their money more wisely, for a pass rusher or tackle. Not to mention they're going to need a new QB soon.

Miami at 6-2 halfway through the season tells you all you need to know about the accuracy of this shit. They got the Jets losing twice to the Bills, but sweeping the NFC East and beating the Steelers. lol
