  • Grading Beginning of the Year Predictions

    These are the predictions that I posted on September 10, 2012:

    1. Hosely will become our best cornerback in the long run, though probably not this season.
    2. David Wilson will flash his home run ability this year but will struggle behind an sub-par line.
    3. Barden will finally show us the red zone threat he was made to be and be a solid possessioin receiver.
    4. Prince will add value but be outshined by Hosely.
    5. We will once again be relegated to a pass first offense due to run blocking woes.
    6. Nicks and Cruz will conduct business as usual- pissing on DBs!
    7. Tuck will regain his form.
    8. Herzlich will be the starting MLB and become a pillar in the middle of our D for years to come.


    1. The O-line will struggle with pass protection as well as run blocking.
    2. DT's will play soft up the middle.
    3. TE production????

    Wilson did show potential, but never got the playing time I thought he would. Never saw the Nicks injury coming though I should have given his injury history. The rest is proof that Ms. Cleo has no competition coming from me. I was pretty good with my worries though. TE was a good surprise IMO.
    Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

    Not too bad.

    Swung and missed on predictions 3,4 and 6-8. Better than most I'm guessing.

      There are many on this site who will criticize because afterall, they have 20-20 rear vision. On the other hand, you took your best shot and are not afraid to bare those picks here. Overall I'd give you a B+ knowing how hard it is to make projections in the NFL especially with rookies. The biggest funbles obviously were on Tuck and Herzlich.
      No one remembers who came in second.

        Sigh....just thinking of the expectations I had for this season makes me depressed

          I had hoped this would be the year the Giants made the leap into the "consistently good" bracket. I was wrong.

          Nothing changes, history just keeps on repeating.
