Planning Ahead Sometimes Involves Football

Planning Ahead Sometimes Involves Football

August 16

It’s that time of year again, the time (almost) everyone has been waiting for… Football season! StorageCraft knows the impact football season has on the general population, that’s why we had a football themed booth last year, which was a big hit of course! And, obviously, many office dwellers here at StorageCraft have Fantasy football teams. Any backup and disaster recovery company worth its salt is adept at planning ahead, which involves thinking a lot about future possibilities. That said, let’s have a look at our predictions (or at least, my predictions) for this year’s NFL football season.

As a Packer and Redskins fan, I always predict that one of those teams will go all the way and take home the coveted ring, but realistically that doesn’t happen as much as I’d like. This year I’m going to try to be strategic and predict which teams will actually win their divisions and who will and in turn, take home the Lombardi Trophy (let’s be serious…it belongs in Green Bay!)

AFC East: Unfortunately, I’m going to go with the Patriots winning their division. I am not a fan, but they have a pretty easy division and almost always manage to take the cake. They won’t go to the Super Bowl though.

AFC North: I predict that the reigning champions, Baltimore Ravens take their division, but just barely over the up-and-coming Bengals

AFC South: Houston Texans. There’s not much to say about them, I just don’t have faith in any AFC South team, so the Texans will do.

AFC West: The Broncos have a handy weapon in the Manning brother that people actually like, Peyton. He played well last year and I see him continuing to do well with the Broncos.

NFC East: Hail to the Redskins (there I go, picking my team). If RGIII can take care of that knee, they just might have a chance. The only thing standing in their way in this division would be the Giants, who will be a large road block (but no one needs to see Eli in the playoffs anymore). Who knows, after seeing Cousins step up against the Ravens last year I could see, although it wouldn’t be ideal, the Redskins still doing well if RGIII is reinjured.

NFC North: I have to go with the Packers, I can’t go against them. If they stay healthy and their running game improves, which has been trying the last few years, they will win the division. Wishful thinking? Nah, they will take it. All I have to say is, Aaron Rodgers.

Stay with me, I’m almost done!

NFC South: Falcons? Some divisions are less clear than others, but I am sticking with that thought.

NFC West: They almost came back in the Super Bowl and even though I can’t stand Kaepernick (mainly because he destroyed the packers last year), I am going with the 49ers.

Super Bowl! Broncos vs. Packers (OK, maybe I am a little biased…) I said I wouldn’t do this, but I’m going with the Packers.

How did I do? What are your predictions?!

      Go Pack Go!

      I agree with all of your predictions Heather but I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw some serious upsets this year. Predicting anything in the NFL this year seems to be more difficult than it ever has been, the league really is up for grabs. Other than the Niners, not many of the typical NFL powerhouse teams have improved, but there appears to be many up and coming teams. (Don’t be surprised if the Bengals, Vikings, Colts, or Saints step up their game big time).
