Prognostications (MHR Staff Members Pick Week 1 Winners)

This is the time of year when NFL fans all across the country, as they prepare for real life football, fantasy football leagues and office football pools begin the laborious process of prognostication on the likely outcomes of 16 football games (excepting of course on bye weeks). There are many ways that people have been known to attempt their predicting of the future in regards to an oblong, leather object and twenty-two manly men locked in what looks strangely like a cross be Greco-Roman wrestling, track sprints, hurdling and baseball pitching. People have been known to build elaborate spreadsheets into which copious statistics are entered in an attempt to calculate the final score. Others work from a "gut feeling." It would not surprise me particularly to discover that crystal balls, tarot cards, darts, dice, coin flips, and ouija boards are pulled out to make a determination of the future.

I once heard of a fan who had thirty-two plush footballs, emblazoned with the logos of each of the NFL teams. He would put them out two by two, according to the weekend games. Whichever one his dog picked up first, that was his pick for that game. Maybe we would be best served by simply closing our eyes and pointing at the names on a list. Whatever your method, it is a fun exercise for many fans as they attempt to win bragging rights around the water cooler. After the jump, you will find which teams were picked by eight MHR staff members. Please offer up your picks in the comments section.
