Crushed Optimists

We are twin brothers who grew up in Central Washington. This blog is devoted to the life of Seattle sports fans, as well as various other topics that we will espouse for your enjoyment. We could be called another OFFICIAL SEATTLE SEAHAWKS site, but we'll take our uneducated crack at the Mariners, Sonics, and Huskies as well. A Seattle Sports Blog? Must be the land... of crushed optimism!

Look Back at NFL Predictions

I thought I would pull out the Crushed Optimists preseason NFL picks with a week to go before the Super Bowl. You will notice that Colin had only five playoff teams correct while Gavin had only six.

Colin's biggest successes..... Seattle, Jacksonville (though not in playoffs), Pittsburgh.
Gavin's biggest successes... Seattle, Pittsburgh (Super Bowl champs!), Carolina

Colin's biggest laughers.... NY Jets, Buffalo, Chicago, NY Giants
Gavin's biggest laughers... NY Giants, Dallas, Chicago, Tampa Bay

So when we rip on the "experts", just know that it's not like we were perfect either. Far from it.
