these guys aren't getting paid for getting the predictions right, they get paid for interesting commentary, ie selling a story. all you need is an opinion and a megaphone to get ratings, and that's all they are after.
did you ever watch the weather? they predict lots of rain when it's raining, and lots of sun when it's clear. after last years performance, everyone wants to be the guy that callled the collapse of pittsburgh (just like everyone wants to anoint the f---ing patriots) after every loss.
last year everyone predicted pittsburgh to win the division.
these guys know little, and it means NOTHING
