Well with "the Nostradamus effect" complete we will now take a look at how Bucs nation voters stack up against my predictions. We will look at division winners and then from there another poll to determine wildcards from Bucs nation members and of course I will give mine. So here we go, hit the jump for the breakdowns.
The AFC East was pretty clear cut from both Bucs nation and me that the Patriots
would win this division. The notable here is that all other teams combined did not have enough votes to beat out the Patriots. That’s a one sided as it gets.
The AFC West was a fairly close division among voters with The Broncos
eking by; I also picked the Broncos to win the division. Notables here are the Chiefs
got more votes than the Chargers
and of the top 3 teams they were separated by a maximum of 3 votes, pretty close if you ask me.
The AFC North came to me as a victory for the Bengals
where voters agreed but barely Bucs nation voters chose the Bengals as well. The notable here is that the Steelers
came in a close second among voters by just 1 vote; I thought voters would sway more towards the ravens.
The AFC South is by far the most decisive division of all of them. Landslide victory from voters does not even describe it. The Texans
got my vote as well as 30 out of 32 votes from Bucs nation voters. The notable here is that the other 2 votes went to the Titans
. Again it looks like football fans love the Cinderella/worst to first stories and vote based on that.
According to me and Bucs nation the AFC finishes like this:
AFC South –Texans
AFC West- Broncos
AFC East- Patriots
The remaining eligible wild card are the Ravens
at 9-7, the Chiefs 8-8 and the Bills
8-8 and you will vote on what two teams move on.
