since68andcounting Posted July 6, 2019 Share Posted July 6, 2019 I always base my season record predictions on a 3-3 split in the division. This is mostly because division games are always close, and the NFL South is notorious for "worst to first" scenarios. Anything can happen and this isn't the AFC East or North where you have a well defined hierarchy. That being said, the years when the Falcons do well and surprise me are usually the years where we are above .500 in the division. Looking at the schedule this year, I'm calling us in the playoffs at 10-6 or 11-5. Once in the playoffs, I think this team has enough experience where *anything* is possible. I DO think our next Super Bowl trip will be a victory if we get that far. But there are a lot of good young emerging NFC teams in our way. The two key games are our week 7 matchup in MBS with the Rams, and our late trip to San Fran. These are also the ones I'm flip-flopping on. I'm hoping we can get more of a homefield advantag as MBS starts to mature, but I've seen no signs of that to date. Frankly, it's been like a morgue in there. And anytime you travel out west, especially late season, it's a disruption. PokerSteve 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
