This year I have decided to try and be a prediction analyst. I read and listen to what some of them say and start thinking that I am better then them and their silly prediction. So, to put my money where my thought is, I am going to predict games this year. This way I can thoroughly embarrass myself publicly. (I do badly enough, maybe I'll get a job at ESPN!)
The Monkeys, when they heard that I was going to do this, said they wanted in on the action. (Well, they grabbed my laptop and started typing their predictions.) I made them a bet; if my record was better than theirs at the end of the year, they would no longer throw bananas at me. If I lose that bet, I'll put a monkey as my avatar during the playoffs here on NN. They agreed.
So, after the jump, week one predictions.

San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers - Game of the week! The homer in me wants to pick my team to win it, and I think that it is kept very close. A-Rod tries to gets them into FG range at the last second, and a bad ref call seals it.
My prediction: Green Bay Packers Monkey Prediction: San Francisco 49ers (Thanks guys...)

My prediction: Baltimore Ravens Monkey Prediction: Baltimore Ravens
My prediction: Oakland Raiders Monkey Prediction: San Diego Chargers
I plan on keeping a running tally between the monkeys and myself. Anyone else want in on the prediction game? Just let me know!
