How would you feel with a 10-6 season, but missing the playoffs?
If USA Today prognosticator Nate Davis is right, that’s what we’ll be looking at this year.
Davis forecast all regular season and playoff games in 2013, and picked the Seahawks to beat the Broncos in the Super Bowl XLVII — eight months before the big game kickoff.
This year, he has done the exercise again. You can see his breakdown here: http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/2014/06/02/2014-season-record-projections-playoffs-seahawks-colts/9767615/
Davis has the Saints winning the NFC South, and the Seahawks ultimately repeating, with a win over the Colts.
While a 10-6 season would be a welcome turnaround, Atlanta is no longer in perennial loser mode. Playoffs or nothing. Super Bowl or bust. Team Blank knows that the attitude is win and win now. Last year, they hope, will prove to be an injury-inspired aberration.
