Default Sports Illustrated NFL "Experts" look stupid now

Anyone besides me notice that Preseason NFL Analysts for Sports Illustrated Magazine predicted some pretty smart decisions (at the time)

Check out some of these:

AFC North:

Ravens 12-4
Bengals 10-6 (WC)
Steelers-6-10
Browns 3-13

Playoffs

Ravens over Colts in Divisonal Playoffs
Patriots over Chargers in Divisional Playoffs
Patriots over Ravens in AFCCG

Super Bowl

Saints over Patriots

NOW THIS IS HOW IT ACTUALLY IS RIGHT NOW (12/23)

AFC North

Steelers- 10-5 (AFC North Champs)
Browns 9-6
Bengals 6-9
Ravens 4- 11

Can't say that I blame them. IMO, at the time those picks did make sense. Personally, I was worried about the Ravens at the beginning of the season.

I predict that every year someone will be trying to take the AFC north title away from the Steelers...every year. Its ours to lose.

Sporting News had Bengals at 10-6, Ravens at 9-7, Steelers at 7-9, and Browns at 4-12. I knew we'd do better than that though.
