Niners Nation Predictions for 2010: Remember, We're NOT "Experts"

So yesterday I spent about 4,000 words showing you how little confidence you should have in the preseason predictions of NFL experts. Naturally, of course, the logical follow-up to such a thorough eviceration of prognostication is for us here at Niners Nation to do some prognosticating. But, remember, nobody said we're NFL experts. Now, if we totally whiff on our Niner predictions, a team for which we should be considered experts, then I fully expect some cynical blogger to write at least 4,000 words making fun of us. Such is life on the interwebs.

I'm not going to do much commentary here, so let me just briefly list the picks we made:

  1. Win totals for all 32 teams
  2. Division champions
  3. Playoff teams in each conference
  4. Conference Championship Game teams
  5. Super Bowl Teams
  6. Super Bowl Champion

Once the season ends, I'll do a post recapping the picks and evaluating our accuracy. And, of course, I'll be including these picks in next year's installment of my Expert (In)Accuracy Rankings.

After the jump, our picks...

Here are our win total projections for the 32 NFL teams. Teams in each division are listed in order of the average wins we've predicted, which is shown in the last column (division champs in bold):

Looks like it's 1996 all over again. Packers, Niners, and Cowboys win their divisions and the Packers win it all. OK, fire away in the comments section!
