    Hurricane Hitlist
    Madden 17 Season 2 Edition


    The Season That Was

    The Hitlist Predictions:

    Pats/Steelers/Raiders/Texans as AFC Div Champs
    Broncos/Jags as AFC WC Teams

    Result: 50% on DIV Champs & 50% on Playoff Teams

    Eagles/Cards/Panthers/Vikings as NFC Div Champs
    Seahwaks/Falcons as NFC WC Teams

    Result: 75% on DIV Champs & 50% on Playoff Teams

    Final Answer: You can trust the Hitlist about as much as you can flipping a coin.

    Biggest Surprise: Cowboys 12-0 start. Madden love goes a long wasy. bringbackjimmy should be sending EA's Equipment_Guru a bag of flowers for the ratings hand job he gave that squad.

    Biggest Disappointment: Texans 2-6 start. Brock just couldn't make the throws, and word is he's now the 3rd string QB.

    The Season To Come

    NFCE: Last season we saw 3 teams (Eagles, Giants & Cowboys) represent in the playoffs and all 3 make the DIV RD. The Eagles made it all the way to the Super Bowl but fell just short. I don't forsee a SB Hangover here. I also don't forsee all 3 teams going back. Who's left out? FINAL ANSWER: Eagles take the crown again. G-men get back to the dance. Cowboys are in the hunt but fall short. The Redskins.....are the Redskins.
    OPP - AFCW & NFCW

    NFCW: The Cardinals were the only team from the division that made the dance in S1 ( GMONEY 15 letting me down S1). The NFCE records meant that essentially no one else was vying for a WC. The question is can anyone dethrone the Cards or break into the Playoffs? FINAL ANSWER: Cards keep the belt, but the Seahawks are able to grab that 5th seed in the playoffs. 49ers are in the hunt late. The Rams don't have the OFF firepower just yet.
    OPP - AFCS & NFCE

    NFCN: The surprise Lions (WTF? ... Great Job SunofGod5 ) stole a mediocre DIV. It didn't really look like any of these teams actually wanted the trophy. Will someone else MEH their way to the top this season? FINAL ANSWER: Vikings win the DIV with 9 wins. Everyone else will be playing for a pick.
    OPP - AFCN & NFCS

    NFCS: The Panthers rose to the top behind the leadership of the new owner Chris (WazzuRN2) who took them all the way to the NFCCG. The Saints went the way Cheez always goes S1 of a file and tanked it. Then let Brees walk to draft the QB Dierdorf with the 2nd overall pick. The Bucs and Falcons played games. Will they do more next season? FINAL ANSWER: Panthers take the medal in a much closer divisional race, winning it off a H2H tie-break. So close Cgreen214 .
    OPP - AFCE & NFCN

    NFC Playoffs
    *WC*

    Giants @ Panthers - Giants Move on
    Seahawks @ Vikings - Seahawks Survive
    Cardinals & Eagles - BYE

    *DIV*
    Seahawks @ Eagles - Eagles knock 'em out the box Rick.
    Giants @ Cardinals - Giants de-feather the Red Birds.

    *CG*
    Giants @ Eagles - Giants Pluck the W in a NARROW victory (Less than 3 pts)

    AFCE: The unsurprising Pats walked away with the East. No other team seemed to consider the DIV worth fighting for. Season 2 we see Jacoby Brissett (WTF?) taking control of the team. This division will be much closer because of it. In the end, will it matter? FINAL ANSWER: No. Patriots win it again, but not until week 15. The Jets are going put up a helluva fight with their new Rookie QB. One more season and this answer likely has to change.
    OPP - AFCW & NFCS

    AFCW: The surprise Chiefs stole the show off the strength of a few SIM Ws & APs. The Hitlist picked the Broncos to make it last season off the strength of their DEF, but alas they came up short. The Chargers played hard and the Raiders played too. The story for S2? FINAL ANSWER: I have NO FREAKING IDEA. Stab in the dark.........Chargers because Ace847 deserves some Karma (it will flow from bringbackjimmy )

    AFCN: The Steelers won this DIV because.........they..........hell, someone had to. The Bengals & Ravens just disappointed and the Browns are still putting it all back together.....trust the process.....it takes a whole 2 decades. Will someone else man-up and take control of this DIV? FINAL ANSWER: Sadly, no. Big Suge Knight is good enough to hold the Ravens at bay and the other 2 are still at least 2 seasons away.

    AFCS: The Jaguars came out on top of the BEST DIV in TMFL. It came down to the end with The Titans having an impressive season. The Colts were in the thick of it and still got in the playoffs. The Texans looked like dead weight the first half of the season (2-6) but had a solid 2nd half (6-2). This team will once again have 3 representatives in the post-season. Who is the odd man out? FINAL ANSWER: The Colts & owner nellycuz get intimate with the feeling of loneliness when they fall short this season. Craig (change your avatar) stands a top the DIV again. The Titans & Texans earn decisive WC births.

    AFC Playoffs
    *WC*

    Texans @ Chargers - Texans steal this one.....barely.
    Titans @ Steelers - Titans rumble to the victory.....big.
    Patriots & Jaguars - BYE

    *DIV*
    Texans @ Jaguars - Texans blow it in the 4th......again
    Titans @ Patriots - Titans take the Pats to pound town....and smile.

    *CG*

    Titans @ Jaguars - Jags win it....unless someone else can prove it.

    ***SUPER BOWL LII***

    Giants @ Jaguars - Jags take 2 in a row....the force is strong with this one.


    You can take these predictions to the bank.....and then look like a fool when the check bounces. HA HA. That's it for this edition. Thanks to DL it's the best I can do.

    Minutes ago, the Saints acquired Marcus Peters from the Chiefs.

    Hurricane GL does this impact your projection for the nfc south?
