No need to go back to archives. Any player, team strategy, performance, play calling, weak spot, strong spot, anything. Let's just see who gets closest.

Please, for the sake of later review, make only posts with a prediction, and refrain from chatter/ arguments. Start a post related to anything you want to expand on, using this as a primary resource for making everyone's predictions transparent. E.G.,'"Predictions -[Avant-TJ]"

Understandably, there is a lot left to be seen and discovered, so after preseason, we can go back, read our predictions and amend if desired. After that, we can stop, start a forum for midseason predictions. At year end--bragging rights for some, and shameful humiliating dialogue for others.

I will go through each individual, chronicle predicions by person and post the summary with percent accuracy.

Because not all predictions have the same level of confidence, I request you start with the level of certainty-- before statement, start with it with one of the following for my sake to sort easily:

1. Guarantee
2. Likely
3. Hunch

If you are making multiple predictions on one post, then be sure to assign each with a grade of 1, 2, or 3. I promise to be objective in compilation-yes, event for Avant. I will weight your predictions as such: 100%- Guarantee; 50%- Likely; 25%- Hunch.

Obvious predictions, e.g. Manning will be in the top 3 for QB TD's, will be thrown out, and it will be posted inthe forum as a reply. Appeals can be made in the form of a reply.

I WILL USE A SPREADSHEET THAT ANYONE CAN REQUEST. YOU WILL BE ABLE TO SEE RANKINGS. BRAGGING RIGHTS/ CASTIGATION to FOLLOW.

Here's a sample prediction/ new forum related to it.

'1. GUARANTEE - Avant will have a 50% or less accuracy.'

[Related Forum] "Prediction - Avant's accuracy ... or inaccuracy, that is"

if you want to make it official... If you have the courage... If you think you have it, post it here. Good luck.

To break the ice...

Guarantee: the average number of carries for the top 5 RB's (by number of caries)vs last year will be down by at least 10%.

Guarantee: Schaub will have worse numbers than Carr did last year.

Guarantee: Vikings Pass Defense will improve by no less than 6 ranking spots over last year.

More to follow as things develop.

1) Avant comes out of the closet!
2) Avant confesses he is an alien!
3) Avant admits Viking Informer is his brother.
4) Avant gets a girl friend, with 2 teeth.
5) and finally, Avant denies that he said Vikings will win 11 games!

#3-Hunch: It will all come together for the Vikes this year. Improved pass rush, one two running back attack and, receivers will catch the ball AND score. Vikes 10-6, playoffs.

#2-Likely: We'll be better than last year but, struggles with TJ and other young players will get us a 7-9 or 8-8 season.

#1-Guarantee: If our 8th loss comes by the first week of November, I will destroy at LEAST one T.V. set!!! Guarantee!!!

I can't count the Kitna vs. TJ, cause I think it's obvious he will. He could be #1 in NFC, or NFL in passing yards this year.

Appeal if you want, we'll leave it up to the forum to vote, but I get a 33% vote since I am scoring.

I have them in the spreadsheet. FYI., if you want to predict record, I am setting the Vikings benchmark as such: 8-8 based on strength of schedule, etc.

yuo can also say they will not make it.

e.g. guarantee, feel likely, or have a hunch they will or will not.

For other teams (try to stay in NFC Central), Ask and I will post the weight.

likely: with the loses to key defensive personnel the vikings will beat the bears once if not twice this year. in fact it it likely that the vikes split with everyone in the division.

hunch: the vikings will win the north, and promptly lose in the first round of the playoffs.

hunch: vikings go from 31st in pass defense to 15th, and udeze is replaced by robison by week 7.

Two of my greatest picks was TJ and Peterson. So we would have to grandfather those two picks.

As the qb goes,so do the vikings.

Meanwhile skipping right into next years draft.

And with the 5th pick in the draft

nice try. if we were basing it on previous picks....you'd be pretty deep in the hole to start. this actually works out better for you. Now make some real picks...I haven't scrolled down all the way yet, so maybe you have.

I don't want this to be a bashing forum...plus, I veto that prediction cause it's too obvious.

Okay..tough to nail down predictions when combined, they defense predictions I separated..top 10 sacks (hunch)....+6 pass defense (hunch)..

Acceptable?
