This hilarious screengrab comes to us from Sky Sports in the UK and their "expert" predictions for the upcoming season. Amazingly, one of their analysts is predicting a Chiefs-Panthers Super Bowl. Between 49 analysts at Fox, CBS, and ESPN a total of 14 picked the Chiefs to make the playoffs this year. 0 picked the Panthers. This would be akin to an American soccer analyst predicting Fulham to win the English Premier League. Also, the Browns as a dark horse???
Let's pump the brakes on the whole idea of putting an NFL team in London.
Jokes on you Kevin's picks arn't looking so bad right now the two TOP defenses in the league hands down. KC is undefeated and CP's have the same defense and a better offense..... Kevin may be an oracle
Like a few have said - Kevin generally takes the michael when talking predictions as he's always so wrong - and he's a Bills fan and picks them as his dark horse every year. Pats/Packers or Broncos/49ers though aren't bad picks and whilst our coverage isn't great - not many of the best analysts want to fly over here every week - it isn't awful. As for putting an NFL team in London...its coming so you might as well get used to the idea.
I'd point out that the person making the prediction is an American guy who was one of the UK's most successful basketball coaches. The knowledge base on the sport in this country goes well beyond this. Also, given these predictions were made at an awful hour in the morning, I have no idea if he's having a laugh. He's a Bills fan after all.
I live in the UK. It should tell you how horrible their coverage is when the most knowledgable one is a UK sportswriter and they rely on Cecil Martin and Bradlee Van Pelt to provide "expert" opinions. Seriously, I think I would rather listen to Shannon Sharpe, John Madden and Tony Siragusa all speaking about utter nonsense all at the same time.
I live in the UK. These guys are buffoons. You now how bad their coverage sucks when their best analyst is a British sports writer and they rely on Cecil Martin and Bradlee Van Pelt to provide their expert opinions. Seeing foolishness like this is not surprising.
