2010 NFL Predicted Standings-The Harrison Ford  Edition

We’ve gotten pretty good at prognosticating over the years.  It’s always a war, but we are never lost when it comes to soothsaying.  Will it be it a glorious day or a dark night for your favorite team? 18to88 is here to tell you.

This year, we pay homage to the birth of Harrison Dunlevy, the latest child born with blue in his blood. We are rocking 2010 Harrison Ford style.  As always, the predicted records are loosely based on a combination of predictions by the Football Outsiders, pythagorean wins, and our own personal biases.

UPDATE:  Here’s a recap of how these predictions fared.  Pretty well actually!
