I'm with Fitz on this one. How can Tennessee be 14th when they lost to Baltimore last year?

Because 14th is the highest ranked team in the "weakest" AFC-South. Come on fitzy... you know how the seeds work Wink

Ex-con's NBFL Season Preview

Power Rankings, shower shankings. No one cares about how teams stack up at the start of the season; the only thing that matters is how many corpses stack up by the end of the season. And more importantly, who will be the last one standing on top of that pile? Well, ladies and gentleman, look no further, because I, renowned playoff-predictor ex-convict, will tell you exactly how the entire upcoming NBFL season will play out.

NFC East

1. Malice Cow-Boys - will smash their way to another East title
2. New York Deviants - if they can develop by season's end, watch out next year
3. Weaklington Frailskins - superb players but can they stop anyone and/or stay alive?
4. Lincoln Financiers - it took me three seasons to make the playoffs with Pact in this division; I expect the same for these guys

NFC North

1. Green Ball Attackers - going out on a limb here, I know
2. Minnesota High Kings - they can't afford to get any more gimped up but are otherwise very solid
3. Detroilet Sewer Lions - a pain to try to score on and a pain to watch them try to score means a .500 campaign
4. Da'Kawgo Kodiaks - not strong enough vs Nurgle, not enough tackle vs Minny, and not enough grue vs the Grues

NFC South

1. Atlatl 'n' Falchions - take the over on 3.5 touchdowns for their rookie saurus as they get him ready for the playoffs
2. Tampa Bowl Smokeaneers - a St4 Blodge/Tackle thrower is my kind of leader
3. New Oldheim Saints - I want to believe in the 'hoo-mans' but drafting a California player is bad juju
4. Carolina Panzers - two +AG runners and 11 guard players means a 0/14/0 record is likely, as all games will end 1-1

NFC West

1. Lost Angels of the NBFL - no mino? +1. Three division rivals with claw? Have fun.
2. Seattle Werehawks - should be a top five team in the league but has yet to prove it
3. San Foulcisco 69'ers - can't tell if the Ma10 St4 wolf with no block is genius or insanity...probably both
4. Arizona Kill Em All - if either +Ag beastman makes it through the season, they'll have something in the future

NFC Writeup
-The East is Dallas' to lose, but Wash has the best chance to dethrone them if their armor holds
-The North has three good to great teams; two will make the playoffs
-The South will be between Tampa and the ATL, though both will make the playoffs
-The West teams will probably all have similar records and all four teams will beat the hell out of each other (all have claw access)

AFC East

1. Ball Fellow Thrills - holy stat increase, batman! Plus, the division is a bit low on tackle
2. New York Wrecks - potential offensive MVP carries the offense, but do they have enough tackle for their division rivals?
3. Miami Dauphins - if the coach can figure out how to use them, and then gets everyone to a second skill, watch out
4. New Engerland Cheatriots - I knew they were cheating all these years

AFC North

1. Kljúfaland Brūnns - a filthy team in a division that won't inflict a ton of damage
2. Cincinatti Bludgeoners - what a way to open the season
3. Blitzburgh Seers - will they ever run out of black magic? they may run out of band-aids first
4. Baltimore Stompers - team looks ok but holy hell are you in a tough division

AFC South

1. Tennesse Titanz - they've let me down before in my predictions but are the safest bet of the four
2. Houstovania Wolfens - an interesting squad with potential; can it live up to it?
3. Indianapolis Crypts - an unheard of spot for Nomad but even he may not like his chances with the current roster
4. Jacksonville Jagâs - won't play like a 4th place team but needs a few more skills

AFC West

1. Denvork Bronkorks - we're coming for you, JAR
2. San Dogo Chompers - there has to be a law that Kryten's throwers MUST roll +AG...
3. Oakland Elf Raiders - if these other duckers don't kill me off quickly, the Raiders will have a huge second half surge
4. Keg City Barbecue Chiefs - if they develop skills this year and target a ball-carrier in the draft, they'll be good to go

AFC Review
-The East will only require seven wins to claim the throne; can the Wrecks fend off two elven foes?
-The North is brutal as hell; you can make an argument for any of three teams to win the division
-The South is full of similar teams and has the biggest chance of a surprise winner
-The West will be an all-out war for one playoff spot (thanks to the North) between three teams that love to kill each other

NFC Playoffs

1. Green Ball Attackers
2. Atlatl 'n' Falchions
3. Malice Cow-Boys
4. Lost Angels of the NBFL
5. Tampa Bowl Smokeaneers
6. Minnesota High Kings

Three bash and three ballers mix it up; expect a lot of 2-1 type games where one opportunity is all the ballers will get before their numbers dwindle out.

AFC Playoffs

1. Kljúfaland Brūnns
2. Denvork Bronkorks
3. Ball Fellow Thrills
4. Tennesse Titanz
5. Cincinatti Bludgeoners
6. Blitzburgh Seers

Again, three bash vs three baller. However, anyone who draws an AFC North team may be fudged; all three of these teams are good.

Conference Championships

1. Green Ball Attackers vs 2. Atlatl 'n' Falchions
1. Kljúfaland Brūnns vs 5. Cincinatti Bludgeoners

While none of the top seeds will go untested, only one will be brought down before the conference championships.

Super Bowl 19

1. Green Ball Attackers vs 1. Kljúfaland Brūnns

What a hell of a coaching matchup.

Super Bowl Champions

Green Ball Attackers

Because Grue has one open finger left on his hand. Kiss the rings, b*tch!

1. Obviously haven't figured it out.
