As I did for my 2007 MLB Season Preview, I’m going to post my predictions of the 2007-2008 NFL season. I’ll try to diss my own team, the Rams, as much as possible, just to make those who read my blog and absolutely hate the nauseating love and bias that I show to my own team. However, I criticize them more than you think. Therefore, let’s get this rolling.

14.) Will Happen: Brady Quinn throws 18 INT’s for his Rookie campaign
