2018-2019 NFL Season Predictions (Awards)

They did lose Bouye who has shown to be a very, very good corner. Also Mercilus. 

I acknowledged both of those losses.

Another 25% of Jonathan Joseph’s legs.

It isn't just Joseph and his legs - there was significant regression from both Kareem Jackson and Kevin Johnson. Both of those guys are relatively young, but they backslid drastically. (Johnson went from up and coming in 2016 to the worst CB in football...)

After a while, you can't assume everyone is just failing at the same time, you have to put some pressure on the guy calling the shots. Watching games, you saw the secondary just looking around and confused (most notably in the last second losses in Seattle and New England). The entire unit left gaping holes all over the place, and it showed.

Replaced Cushing with Cunningham

Addition by subtraction - Cushing was burned out two seasons ago, Cunningham was a better option from the get go. The Texans also benefitted from better play at NT, where DJ Reader was a considerably better option than Vince Wilfork (who was on his last legs three seasons ago in NE) and an improved Jadevion Clowney who played the entire season for the first time in his career.

I'll concede that there was a net loss overall (Quentin Demps was a particularly big loss) but mitigated at absolute best - not a "25 spot decrease" type loss.

Offense threw one more interception and had a very slightly worse 3rd down conversion rate compared to 2016. About the same number of rushing yards totals, but worse on a Y/A basis. Pretty negligible, but a worse offense in a fair number of statistics

Tale of two offenses in 2017. For six games in 2017, the Texans were the highest scoring offense in the NFL, with above average ranks in each of those categories you mention. In the 10 games without Deshaun Watson, Tom Savage brought those numbers below the Brock line (yes, it's possible to go below the Brock line).

Colts or Bengals. I'll say Bengals.

Just wondering why you think the Bengals will be so bad this year?

I don't think they improved, I don't think they'll want to play for Marvin Lewis for another season and I think the Browns got better.

Any reason you came to that conclusion of the players not wanting to play for Marvin? When reports were out that he was going to be let go at the end of the year, the plays spoke up saying they wanted him back and they won their final 2 games and knocked those two teams out of the playoff hunt.

but I guess its certainly possible they end up with the #1 pick. I just don't see it.

Compared to our roster from last season, we're far better off. We really only "lost" Kevin Minter, Pacman Jones, and Jeremy Hill. While upgrading our weakest positions with Cordy Glenn, Preston Brown and Billy Price. John Ross was essentially red-shirted his first year, so it's like we have two first rounders in the fold.

It's also worth noting the additions to our coaching staff, with offensive line coach Frank Pollack (of Dallas' allstar regime), and Teryl Austin at DC.

On paper we look really good. I expect us to compete for a wildcard.

CIN should be a lot better.   Firming up the trenches helps so much.   But drafts take time.   > .500 would be a great result given they drew the NFC South.   You are headed in the right direction but ppl have to temper year 1 expectations.   NO 2017 impact is literally 1x a decade or less event.

I'm on board with all of this. My only bold prediction apart from yours is Rams being a lot closer to a below .500 team than a #1 seed. Love how you put the first overall pick in there too. Great job.
