Predictions:

-#LOLCLOWNS
-They're only saved from being the worst team by the Redacteds, Dolphins, and Raiders
-KC repeats
-Patrick Mahomes gets MVP
-Tom Brady is denied yet another Super Bowl trip by getting hammered 62-7 by San Francisco in the playoffs
 
2020-09-10 10:37:57 AM  
Season won't finish, thousands in TX will catch Covid this weekend.

We'll be lucky if a superstar player doesn't die.  Others will develop chronic conditions few will escape unscathed.

Most of the players can afford medical treatment so there probably won't be medical bankruptcies.
 
2020-09-10 10:38:18 AM  
Prediction:

There will be no playoffs or Owl this year, because we chose Sturgis and Applebees over human lives. Things will get out of control and the entire season will be cancelled before Thanksgiving

/I must be fun at parties

- Browns have a winning season and make the playoffs
- The Bucs are a giant bust, don't even make the playoffs
- Patriots do make the playoffs but lose in the first round
- Ravens make the playoffs but are nowhere near as good as they were last year
- SB:  Packers vs. KC.  Packers win the Super Bowl*
- Mahomes is the MVP
- Kaep gets a contract offer at some point in the season but turns it down because he'd be a backup

/*i would not place any actual money on but am contractually obligated to believe every year

ok doomers

ATL takes it all
Brady sucks a fat baby's dick
Saints choke
Matt Ryan and Julio Jones share MVP

Is there a Fark Eliminator and/or Pick'em this year?
 
2020-09-10 10:47:44 AM  
My predictions:

At the minimum, we'll have Clownshoes every game until the 4th quarter of the season. Think about the lack of preseason games, time spent on drills, coaching and so on. It'll be glorious.

KC gets to the Owl, but loses to San Fran in a shootout. Jimmy G gets MVP because it rhymes, and a QB wins MVP most years (even when they don't really deserve it).

Brady retires half-way through a miserable season. Farkers rag on the guy for quitting.

Lions might scrape 6-10, and I'm being generous. They'll be victimized by at least two new interpretations of rules and/or flags being picked up for no logical reason. Picking top 5 in the next draft - book it, done. Stafford says fark it and leaves after the season. I've got no expectations of success.

I agree except with the Browns-- they'll make it  to 8-1 when they suffer a massive outbreak of the 'rona and go 0-7 to finish out behind the 9-7 Steelers for the 6-seed.
 
2020-09-10 10:51:56 AM  
Vikings blow a 10-point lead in the Owl. Lose to KC.

Brady blows out, but not until the last minute.

Packers go down. Rodgers retires.

It's going to be like watching high school football, or maybe that year wayyyyyy back in the early 90's when the players went on strike.

I'm really ambivalent about watching this year; it just feels kinda wrong with everything going on.

Except there are 7 teams per conference that make the playoffs now. Lost in the craziness of 2020, the NFL made changes to the playoff format that only one team gets a bye.

Jedekai: Vikings blow a 10-point lead in the Owl. Lose to KC.

Kirk Cousins "if I die, I die" attitude is more likely to leave the vikings without a QB than a Rodgers injury/retirement.

Cam Newton will throw for 70 touchdowns and 0 interceptions.

Texas is why we can't have nice things.

I think the players will be fine though. The NFL has seemingly done a good job so far and the NHL, MLB and NBA have been managing to play with few issues.

The Fark Elimination Gredunza is in the same group it's been in. drew is the pwd

If season goes the distance:

Saints win the division, and it all.  Rob celebrates with the return of the Jake after TB wins it in week 1.

Father time defeats TB as TB does not make playoffs

Cows continue to be perennially overrated, go 9-7 and fight for a wildcard final week, which they don't get (sorry Di)

Patriots start strong, but Cam realizes that his receivers must be 10 feet tall in October and they peter out at 8-8 (sorry fatal)

Jags jag (sorry Bunny)

Mahomes continues to be ridiculous and is MVP.  They lose to the Saints in the owl.

If the season doesn't go the distance:

After week 4, the standings are locked and finalized.  Playoffs will include 16 teams and be in a bubble in the city formerly known as Omaha.
 
2020-09-10 11:14:52 AM  
What's the over/under on the season being cancelled because half of a team has dropped dead because of COVID?
Mine's Week 7.
 
2020-09-10 11:15:21 AM  
I'm predicting a team will forfeit a game instead of going through the hassle of traveling to that game and putting their players/coaches/staff in harms way.
 
2020-09-10 11:16:00 AM  
Everything will be all right somehow.
 
2020-09-10 11:20:02 AM  
I am not confident at all that the season will last past Thanksgiving.

If by a miracle the season makes it to the end, I would have to pick KC and NO, with the Chefs winning.

Klivian: Prediction:

/I must be fun at parties


I could not agree more.

And for the last time... We should cancel football not because a bunch of player will get the covid. We should cancel football so millions of yahoos don't have  hundreds of reasons to schedule gatherings where they will get together and spread the covid.

Super Bowl:

Seahawks vs. Chiefs....Seahawks win a close one.
 
2020-09-10 11:26:09 AM  

I hereby demand that I be given a Fark account: Browns go 7-0, then the season is cancelled because of COVID.

It's 2020, people.


My prediction is that OBJ goes to "Brown Town".
 
2020-09-10 11:28:23 AM  
Same prediction as nearly every year: Vikings win the NFC North at 10-6, embarrass themselves in the playoffs.
 
2020-09-10 11:30:45 AM  
Season gets shut down half way through. No Owl champ. Covid  wins MVP   Most Virulent Pathogen
 
2020-09-10 12:14:17 PM  
Same teams that have been good will continue to be good.  Same farkers who tie their self worth to their teams will continue to act like morans. Good times to be had for all.
 
2020-09-10 12:36:22 PM  
Tampa will not make the playoffs.
 
2020-09-10 12:49:54 PM  
It's the Ticketmaster links to the right of every game that amuse me.  Amuse as in terrify.

NFL has to suspend season in December. Belichick finds a rule loophole, leaving the Pats as the only Owl-eligible team in the AFC.
 
2020-09-10 1:54:24 PM  
Is there a fark eliminator league this year?
 
2020-09-10 1:56:02 PM  
Niners beat Browns in the Butt Stuffb Owl.
 
2020-09-10 2:01:14 PM  
The 49ers won't have a home game until Week 9.

Chiefs stuff the Bucs 100-0 in the Bowl, Mahomes is given deeds to the stadium.

The Bill's and Vikings go into bubbles as the rest of the league is ravaged by COVID and make the OWL by default.  No one ever scores.
 
2020-09-10 3:03:11 PM  
In a normal year, the Buffalo/NE Division Title race would be exciting.

But I have Jerry Jones at 6 weeks in ICU.

Usually the LCS/World Series are going on when the NBA and NHL start up, aren't they? I seem to remember fairly recently the Pats, Bruins, and Red Sox playing on the same day with the Celtics playing the next day.

Still doesn't feel right to me though, everything feels like exhibition games (aside from last nights Celtics game, that was intense).

The only time, generally, that there are zero professional sports games being played, is the day before and the day after the MLB all star game. At least in pre-pandemic times.

damn you spell check!


The fifth major sports league, MLS, is playing, too... Just to add to it

Neither NE nor Tampa Bay have a winning season, leaving the commentators to ponder just what created the magic with the Patriots.

The Eagles win their division and the Cowboys come in last.

A famous player catches Covid and actually dies after weeks in the hospital - rattling the nation in ways that the other 185k dead Americans couldn't.

The best game of the year is the AFC Championship game between the Ravens and Chiefs.

Brady is sacked and injured toward the end of the season, leading to calls to have QBs wear flags and not be tackled.

I wish, but I don't see SF making it to the playoffs.  They had their best chance last year and as the season progresses, it may be a battle of COVID positive starters watching from home while the backups flail around.  It's going to be a in interesting year.

I'm just waiting to see the raiders new stadium.
