AFC EAST: PREDICTIONS



Well, everyone else has done it, why not me?

NE Patriots –

Good schedule, not especially tough.  Texans, Ravens, and Broncos are  their biggest challenges, besides the usual mud wrestling of the AFC  East.  They upgraded a little, but who cares.  They’ve been on their  pedestal a while, and no one has the stuff to knock them off so far.   Don’t see a change quite yet.  13-3.

NY Jets – 

They’ve got everything you could ask for in a contender  except for one teensy tinsy thing … solid QB play.  Add a QB  competition and it could be even more dangerous.  I just don’t see  how they think Tebow helps Sanchez, except as a bench press spotter.   Should Sanchez throw a couple of picks, the Tebow chants will start.   Sanchez being the sensitive guy he is either turns it on out of  spite, and plays angry, or tanks.  I’m betting on tanking.  Tebow  takes over mid season and we have a strange new bird.  This mess  continues on through next off-season, and viola!  .. we have a Jets  tire fire.  For them to succeed, one of those two QBs needs to go.

I do agree that the Tebow package will pay dividends during games,  but guess what… it’s the same reason the Broncos won.  Yes, the  formation works when done correctly.  I just think the in-fighting  and media mess will kill any progress the Tebow package will create.

In the end the Jets could go full belly up, or win out of sheer  anger.  Really not sure which.

But you’re as good as your QB play, so since I think Sanchez is only  a step above average, I’ll go 9-7.

Miami Dolphins –

How good is Joe Philbin?  Hopefully amazing because  the Dolphins talent level isn’t.  But they’re also not the Sisters of  the Poor.  Solid pros on many levels, all capable of winning games,  and doing their job.  Just no stars.  Yes, yes, I know that the 1972  Dolphins had no stars on defense (they say).  Bush is probably the  poster boy and the defacto star, and he has the best chance of  putting up some serious #s.  He’ll be the busiest guy on the team.   Should Ocho and Naanee work out, then we have a viable WR corps that  can execute Philbin’s offense.  On a shearly professional standpoint,  the Fins have improved their system, and ability to run plays to beat  teams.  That in itself should get them a few more wins.

But the old adage holds true for me.  You’re as good as your QB.   Garrard looks poised to win the job, and yes Garrard has had some  good years.  But his career is still average, new system, and he’s old now, so  not improving.  Even though the 2012 Dolphins are going to look and  be much better than the 2011 Dolphins, their schedule is not easy, and  their record will not quite match the potential.

Either 7-9, or 8-8 is my prediction based on Philbin’s system being  executed well by adequate but not special players.  I do expect this  to drastically change upwards once we have QB solidity.  On the right  track, most definitely.

 

Buffalo Bills-

They made a big splash by adding mario Williams.  They have up-and-comers on offense like Stevie Johnson.   Their the new IT team, and confident and full of teenager-y excitement.  And yes, they have a lot of dangerous players, and are a solid team, that works really hard.

Well he Dolphins team last year worked really hard.  Next.

Going once again to the well …you’re as good as your QB, and Fitzgerald is Feidler.  Gives 100%, but that’s because anything less would not qualify for an NFL QB.  His limitations are the Bills limitations.  Admirable, but in the end, fatally flawed.

The good news for them is their schedule isn’t a monster.  Even though the Fins will be better than them, their record will be close.  I’ll go a solid 6-10.

Bad news for the rest of the league is when the Bills get their QB situation fixed, they’ll be multiple games better.

_______________________

**Overall, I expect the Fins and Bills to fix their QB questions within the next year or two.  Assuming the Jets waffle on Sanch-bow for a while, and Brady actually gets old … might be a power switch soon.

Sooo, I stuck my neck out here with my predictions.  Now it’s your turn.

    Odin,
    Be careful or someone might take away your “homer” card.
    That post, except for the dream part was entirely sensible, and mirrored my sentiments. *sniff, sniff, wipe tear away.

    Ireland’s original statement of “can’t hit on them all, starters early rounds” was poorly timed and phrased, but sensible. His statement AFTER the draft was bafoonish. “We killed it!” Yes, indeed you did.

    I’m not going to say that any of those earlier round guys won’t be great someday, because they very well might, but … why o why do we ALWAYS have to get the guys that need several years to bloom? It’s like he’s Charlie brown in the Christmas Tree lot, passing the fluffy ones, and targetting the tree that has no needles. Plant it, and with constant care and attention,years from now it may grow to be a bigger tree than any other –or — it may just be a crappy tree.

    I did at least assume that Martin was a day 1 starter. Someone get that kid some ‘roids …er, I mean totally legal supplements, please. Somebody from this draft needs to be on the field.
    ______
    I’ll go ahead and wager that Clay will be Ireland’s hat hanger. He has the potential in this offense to be great, and will be the poster boy for all the “We Love Ireland” t-shirts. Should he get some help from the receiver corps, he may be the next big deal.

    Elsewhere, just to keep tabs:

    http://espn.go.com/blog/afceast/post/_/id/44793/bills-camp-watch

    I don’t honestly understand how your QB can go 6-10 (career 68-65 TD-Int ratio), and have a lower passer rating than Tavaris Jackson, have no assumed QB competition/controversy in camp, and get paid $59 mill following.
    Boggles.

  4. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Omar Kelly tweets

    “Dolphins GM Jeff Ireland’s footing appears solid right now, but if Jared Odrick, Koa Misi and Reshad Jones (stars of the 2010 draft class) aren’t SOLID starters in 2012, if Mike Pouncey, Daniel Thomas, Charles Clay, Clyde Gates and Jimmy Wilson (what remains of the 2011 draft class) don’t take their game to the next level, and if the 2012 rookies (Jonathan Martin, Olivier Vernon, Michael Egnew, Lamar Miller) fail to make much of an immediate impact, his footing with owner Steve Ross with loosen.”
    ………………

    Cha, I’d say that’s obvious. If every guy he drafted in the last 3 years sucks, then yeah there’s a clear finger pointing direction.

    Statistics, if not dumb luck, will say that somebody or two will fair well enough to be called a success.

    Here’s my take:

    1. Pouncey, looks legit. I still don’t like how/where/.. and who he jumped to be drafted, but I’ll predict success and long career barring injury.

    2. Clay looks on verge of being special. Soon see. But this offense is his style, and he has the coaches attention. The ironic thing is that when he was drafted, he didn’t fit. Without a coaching change he would’ve been struggling for playing time. Hard to give Ireland foresight credit. But I’m predicting a good year for Clay anyway.

    3. Jones has the coaches confidence to step in and be the guy we need at safety. Pads come on, and we’ll all see soon enough if it’s legit.

    4. Odrick has the tools, size, speed etc. Just gotta do it. Stays healthy, has a good shot. Can’t blame Ireland for injuries. But if Odrick doesn’t pan out when healthy, big blow to the scout.

    5. Thomas, IMHO, is a back up. Wasn’t excited about him out of college, still not. Gates was a fair gamble, and I would’ve too, but alas, I see him getting cut. Misi, he needs to convince me of something, unimpressed. Wilson? No clue, we’ll see.

    6. This year’s rooks? Not much to judge yet. Have to wait. I’m exceptionally underwhelmed with Ireland’s choices, but there’s no data or pudding to prove yet. So… on with the season!

    So at a glance, I’d say fair bet that 3 maybe 4 of Irelands bigger picks from last few drafts may contribute. Even though I find Ireland to be a talentless, tactless schmuck, the data here doesn’t suggest him getting fired anytime soon. I’ll go so far as to say his pick of Tannehill will define his job, and THAT will take a few years. So love ’em or hate ’em, I think he’ll be around at least 2-3 more years. Once we know if Tannehill’s legit or not.

  6. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Battle of the columnists. Mando bitch slappin’s Omar’s “Tannehill is only eye candy” assertion:

    “Reports I’m reading from the time I was away are speculating that Ryan Tannehill is already out of the running for an opportunity to start. Really? That’s not what a team source suggested to me today. The source told me the club very much wants Tannehill signed and in camp as soon as possible so that he won’t be behind in the competition with the veterans. The club wants Tannehill to compete and compete hard for the chance to start. No, he might not win the competition, but to suggest he’s already lost it is not accurate.”

    So…looks like Mando is back to work.

    Previously dead hope of Tannehill getting some play this year, now on life support, but not entirely dead .. just mostly dead – there’s a difference.

    Jeff,

    I’ll second your Fitzpatrick “Question/Comment”.

    The size of his contract alone is puzzling. Apparently it’s way more than just initial desperation. Seriously.

    He’s a QB so granted he’ll command big bucks. But in all reality, what has he done to garner 60 million dollars worth of “Benefits of Doubt”?

    “SOMEBODY” combined desperation, hope and narcissism, stirred well and are PRAYING for some Gourmet results. In my opinion they should have tried some magik and spellcasting too becuase I don’t think it’s going to happen.

    I think we’ve all seen the best we’re going to see in Fitz. Flashes of Big Time skills – NEGATED by chronic inconsistencies.

    “SOMEBODY” gambled BIG TIME on Fitz(I think out of sheer desperation, but that’s just me)and I think their going to lose.

    I think Fitz is fatally flawed. He still struggles with decision making. When things get tough he struggles. When he struggles his decision making process starts to suffer. When his decision making breaks down, his mechanics start breaking down as well. It’s actually pretty common. we usually just don’t see it as often because the guys that have these issues usually don’t make it to this level.

    It’s a recipe for disaster. You combine these ingredients, stir well and Wal – Lah! It adds up to his fatal flaw: Chronic Inconsistencies.
    —————————————————————————————

    PS: I’m not trying to be the All-Knowing Blabber Mouth. I do realize how easily I can be proven wrong. You just gave me a chance to voice my OWN PERSONAL opinion on Fitz……….and I RAN with it 😉

    Fitzy is Buffs attempt to reclaim Flutie. Not aiming very high, IMHO.

    So that’s my mp3 in a nutshell with a couple copies of “The Office” and the movie “The Dark Night Rises” and a few games as well.

    You also may notice there is not one 80’s “hair band” in there. JS it wasn’t that they grew their hair long and really has little to do with how they dress eventhough that is one of the things I sited.

    It was more about the self indulgent lyrics. The ultra cheese they were spreading on way to thick. I’ve been playing guitar for a long time and we are amateur performers (parties, one wedding). I am a HUGE lyrics guy. If the lyrics to a song don’t do it for me I lose interest. A lot of the hair bands wrote lyrics that were complete nonsense. Obviously written to appeal to teenage angst. I respect their chops, great fast solos (allthough very little emotion behind them, running up and down the minor pentatonic scale like mindless robots) great performers. Did they change a generation? Did they define music in any way? IMO no. They were the first generation of music that no one copied. It came out and died very quickly. The 90’s brought more thought provoking lyrics, they challenged us to learn about the world around us.

    And here are some lyrics from the biggest hits in the late 80’s. With help from my wife who loved 80’s music. Of course she was born in 78 so she was 8 when this stuff came out!

    “She’s my cherry pie, cool drink of water such a sweet blah blah.”

    “I’m hot, sticky sweet, from my hands to my feet yeah”. “Poor some sugar on me”.

    “Love in an elevator, livin it up when I’m going down”.

    “At the drive-in
    In the old man’s Ford
    Behind the bushes
    Until I’m screamin’ for more
    Down the basement
    Lock the cellar door
    And baby
    Talk dirty to me”

    “Gang Fights, fatal strikes, we lie on the wild side, no escape, murder rape, doin time on the wildside, a baby cries a cop dies.”

    Just blech. Baaaarrrrrfffffffffff!!!!

    Phins 78,

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m impressed.

    When I FIRST saw your list I thought of commenting, grading and critiquing. Then the list kept going……….and GOING……….AND GOING…………lol.

    Are you this diverse in all of your………ah….um……..interests/tastes? I bet you drive your poor Wife CRAZY trying to get her to wear a different colored wig for each day of the week……….? (Joking……….kind of 😉 )

    Seriously, in my book, anyone with such a broad range of musical tastes gets an “A-1” rating. That’s pretty awesome man. The Good Lord Blessed you in that you can enjoy so much more compared to the average Joe.

    Of course I wouldn’t want to get stuck in a car with you on any long road trips either. You’d probably drive me crazy with Dean Martin, Nat King Cole, Mozart and Beethoven(BTW-wheres Bach in all this? Most Mozart and Beethoven listeners like Bach-I thought?).

    On the bright side, we wouldn’t have to listen to anything twice!

    You are truly Blessed 😉

  17. odinseye Says:

    Jeff,

    No worries about Jon letting me do a write up. I was kind of being a little “Tongue In Cheeky” about it. Well…….TRYING to be anyways.

    Besides, I suspect I could be a little too “Homer-ish” in my “Babblings”. If you know what I mean………… 😉

  18. Jeff Schanz (@JS_in_LA) Says:

    Phins78, dude…bored? 😉
    I have about 4000 some odd songs on my everyday playlist (more than that overall), and it would take up 2 screens to list all the artists. So won’t try to match ya.

    Needless to say you like the 90’s. Noted. I’ll cancel the Brett Michaels surprise concert in your back yard. Couldn’t get Warrant, and Cinderella was booked for a Moose Lodge event.

    And I like deep lyrical poetry just fine. Sometimes I’m in the mood for it. Sometimes I’m in the mood to rock my socks off. Sometimes I’m in a light mood, and Judas Priest isn’t the best to work by – insert Norah Jones or Mark Knofler. Some situations Jimmy Buffet is way better than the Beatles (sipping cocktails on a beach, eg.), and sometimes dumb ass crap is just plain fun to listen too. Da da da.

    Music is some people’s religion.
    It’s just a release for me. I can get very serious about a lot of it, but in the end… a bunch of sheltered substance abusers with Peter Pan wordly knowledge, and an adgenda to share it … I take with a grain of salt. But if you can tear up a guitar while you’re preachin’ to me … you got me. 😉
    ___________
    By my calculations you do not have one single band born from the 80’s whatsoever. Wow. Well, you are indeed consistent in your preferences. Figured one would sneak in there by accident, if nothing else. Not even U2?

    ———————————————————–

    78,

    This sums it up for me PEFECTLY. Since I take Music so seriously, I’m probably making it out to be bigger than it is. But I just find it IRONIC how well you said it. I couldn’t count the number of times(or ways)that I’ve expressed the very same feeling.

    The only thing I would add is the “Vaunted(lol)” Mixolydian!

    I don’t know how much Music Theory you use, or if you play lead Guitar, but the Mixolydian is KING when it comes to those lightning fast – mindless – emotionless trips up and down the neck. In combo with the alternate “sweep” picking no doubt.

    The Mixolydian is a mode based on the Major scale, but it plays over the dominant 7ths perfectly. Meaning you can use it over Minor Chords and blends PERFECTLY with the Minor Pentatonics(Rock, Blues and even Jazz).

    The “Hand Positions(all 5)” relative to the Mixolydian makes it PERFECT for the HIGH SPEED Trills, legatos and the DREADED(ROTFLMAO)SHREDDING in particular.

    (PS: let me know if you got my last joke in regards to “DREADED”)

    Jeff,

    You got me like Phins 78 did above. At the other end of the spectrum though.

    I take music very seriously and do in all HONESTY, consider it my religion(it beats Catholicism, Baptists and Pentacostals, etc, etc). Maybe calling it my “Spirituality” would be more accurate? Nah! It’s my religion. The rituals, the routines, the appreciation given to the Almighty – It’s all there!

    Anyways, you nailed it above. Every once in awhile, I get in a playful, mischievious mood and nothing plays better than some of the Classics from that Era.

    If you allow me to combine two of your sentences, you got me in a nutshell-lol:

    Rock on Odin, and Phins.

    It’s totally understandable how both you guys feel. I’ve never played anything more than air-guitars and steering wheel drumset.
    I took guitar lessons once when I was a kid, and whined that my fingers hurt. 😦

    Animation is my current religion, and as long as you don’t insist on praising the beautiful professional animation in Shrek,
    push Anime’ on me,
    or call the guys at Pixar a bunch of kids playing with pretty colored dolls .. then we’re juuuuuuuust fine. 😆

    I do really appreciate serious skill on a musical instrument, and can respect the heck out of artists I don’t even like, and like artists that are embarrassments to other skilled musicians… but thats what makes music so darned great. It’s what speaks to your soul, and has not a damned thing to do with what SHOULD be.

    Same thing with art. Don’t like the Mona Lisa? Don’t mean a thing.

    Oh Bla Dee Oh Bla Da – life goes on.

    JS my mp3 contains no singles,all albums and I own every album made by some bands like the Foo, Zeppelin, and a few others. It’s a 16GB HD and it’s full, I have to delete to add. Can’t even imagine how many songs are on there. That actually only took me about 10 minutes to search and type. But yes, I was bored. Haha

  27. phins78 Says:

    Js lmao at your 8:38 post. Minoxidil and pentagram lol,,,,classic! Hahahaha

  28. phins78 Says:

    Odinseye I’m not a master when it comes to theory. I’m sure you are more knowledgeable than I in that area. I’m the rythym guy and also sing a lot. Lately I’ve been writing some solo acoustic stuff but I rarely play solos. Not my strength but if we’re playing a slower song in E I can solo pretty good. Speaking of solos I forgot I have Santana as well. Always loved Carlos and Gilmours solos and would say my solos are heavily influenced by Gilmours style.

    I understood your reference but maybe not the way you wanted me too if that makes sense. I always rolled my eyes at the dorks who were like “lets shred it up dude”. And didn’t ever like soloing being described as shredding because it always told me that someone was about to play a memorized scale as fast as they could forwards and backwards in all positions (1st,2nd,3rd etc. Position) But what did you mean? I definitely find what I explained dreadful but that’s probably not what you meant. 🙂

  29. phins78 Says:

    I knew we had to have some music in common JS. I’m sure you probably have some stuff that I don’t have but do enjoy. I saw the Gorrilaz at MSG a couple years back on their Plastic Beach tour. What an amazing show, it had everything! So many instruments out of the norm and an African orchestra that was unbelievable. Lots of different performers including the guitarist from the Clash, Lou Reed, Snoop Dog, Mos Def, and a lot more. Fun show.

  30. phins78 Says:

    JS very true at 8:59. Okay guys this was fun and now on to fooooootball woohoo! I really can’t wait.

    I say that now but lately by week 4 I’m cursing everything about the phins and wondering when my hockey team is on. The truly sad thing is I’m an Islander fan and they’re even worse than the Dolphins! I can’t win.

    But that’s why I look forward to camp and preseason so much. There’s still hope I can cling too. Lol this post is pretty sad.

    Aloco,
    Good call. I need some Tina myself. There’s several artists/songs I dig that I haven’t gotten around to downl… ur., purchasing. Tina among them.
    It never ends.

    DD,
    Loving the Black Flag in the middle of all the other classics. Gotta love folks’ diversity. Don’t have any Black Flag myself, but plenty that qualify as odd bed partners to the other classics and so forth.
    I even have a Sesame Street song in there. Ha!
    Got a Waylon double CD set recently and was surprised how much of it I loved.

    ..Jeff..If you can. Try to you tube Stevie Wonders performance on Sesame Street…It is off the freekin hook. I don’t know how else to find it if it isn’t on there. Worth checking out. Another cool performance is Ray Charles on Hee-Haw. Buck Owens looks like he has seen the musical equivelant to the next coming..Good stuff. Oh,and any performance by the Blues Brothers on SNL is sweet!

    I understood your reference but maybe not the way you wanted me too if that makes sense. I always rolled my eyes at the dorks who were like “lets shred it up dude”. And didn’t ever like soloing being described as shredding because it always told me that someone was about to play a memorized scale as fast as they could forwards and backwards in all positions (1st,2nd,3rd etc. Position) But what did you mean? I definitely find what I explained dreadful but that’s probably not what you meant.

    Bing, bing, BING! We have a WINNER!

    That’s EXACTLY what I meant. I can’t stand it.

    About 99.9% percent of the “Dudes” that LOVE to “Shred” are completely devoid of Style, Feel and Emotion. I’d ****ALMOST**** prefer listening to some Techno-Crap!

    You got the “Joke” alright: DREADFUL!!!!
