It’s nearly that time again, people. Can’t you just smell it? The brauts, the beer, the freshly cut grass…. Oh, the anticipation!
Football kicks up before we know it… and to get you all fired up for this year’s NFL season, I’m hosting my second annual Futures Contest. Hanahan, last year’s winner with a very respectable 44 out of a possible 55 points, has been declared this year’s Honorary Grand Marshal. Remember, Han, you’re not just defending your title. You’re on the verge of establishing a dynasty. Give the crowd a wave.
In case you all forgot, here are the rules. An NFL future is how many wins, out of a 16-game season, Las Vegas thinks each team will tally. You are to choose over, or under, that number. Ties will go to the runner.
You must hereby select TEN TEAMS from the list below and assign them confidence points, ten being the team you’re MOST confident about and one being the least, then list them in the comments section. You will be awarded those points if you guessed over or under correctly for that particular team. It’s just that simple. For the tiebreaker, I need your projected win total for the three Florida teams: Tampa Bay, Jacksonville and Miami.
In addition to the glory of knocking Han off his high horse, this year’s contest winner will receive a fabulous prize pack, bragging rights and a seat next to Hanahan in the SportsChump Hall of Fame.
Buckle up your chin-straps, people. All entries must be received by kick-off of the opening game September 5.
