Bold, Off-the-Cuff Early 2017 Season Predictions


Bold, Off-the-Cuff Early 2017 Season Predictions
M.D. Wright
8.1.2017

It is August 1, which means training camps are now in full swing and we have the first preseason game (Hall of Fame Game; Thursday, August 3, 2017 — Arizona vs. Dallas) on the horizon. I normally don’t even begin talking about football seriously until Week 2 or 3 of the preseason, and don’t roll out predictions until after the preseason schedule is completed and the attrition that often leads to season-ending injuries has run its course just before Week 1 of the regular season.

I’m going to throw a bone to you people who rush spring and summer by, and don’t watch NHL playoffs, don’t like or watch baseball and spend every day from the conclusion of the previous season’s Super Bowl rushing Week 1 of the next season to arrive. Consider it a one-time, make-good offer. I’m going back to my old ways next year.

As for now, we will do division by division predictions, statistical leader predictions and AFC/NFC Championship predictions, as well.
