SkolTroll is playing with his crystal balls again.

Last year, I whipped out the old crystal balls to prognosticate how the Vikings would do after the 1st 4 weeks. It was rudimentary at best, but it yielded the Vikes needing to beat the Pack in the last week to get into the playoffs. In my scenario, they did, and they finished just out of the playoffs. The Pack missed the playoffs, the Bears went 10-6, and the Lions, well... I stopped at 3-9. I felt bad. I didn't want to have them ending up at 4-12 in my scenario. Or at least that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

This year, I feel the need to improve. Get better or get out, right? So even though SBNation beat me to it with their epic dog & pony show, I'm still gonna make my own predictions. Heck, I spent 4 hours on the dang analysis. Some overly produced flip book ain't got nothing on what I did. (Plus, I think 90% of the teams finished better than 7-9. That seems mathematically improbable.)

I picked all 267 games. All. Of. Them. Why, you ask? Because I get all weirded out when I see analysts predicting records that make little sense. Sure, they "factor" strength of schedule into it, but do they actually realize that something's got to give somewhere? Every "great" team can't go 11-5 or 12-4. They play each other too much!

So I started by downloading a schedule from Excel for Fantasy Football. It was formatted well, and it was free to use. Then I played each match-up. Home teams had the advantage (the 3-pt Vegas rule) unless I felt the visitors posed a significant upset. The first run through gave NO BEARING as to who I thought "should" win the Super Bowl. It was just mono-a-mono type picks.

After aggregating the records (w/ divisional and conference records tabulated), I went back and looked to see if anything "silly" leaped out at me, i.e. did my meager mind weight one team's chances of success/failure too much? I was surprised to see that, barring a few outliers where a team ran the table in their division (or stunk up the joint), I had my predictions. After the minor tweaks, it looked like something I could stand behind. So I picked through the playoffs, match-up by match-up, and I came to a not-so-stunning conclusion:

Mr. Harbaugh will now proceed to get his cake.

I'm picking San Fran to hoist the trophy. I can only see Seattle getting in their way. Parity reigns among the other 30 teams.

But what about the Vikings? This IS a Vikings website. Let's go week by week:

L @ DET: Vikings aren't ready for prime time. They expect to win, and this is the wake up call. How important is this game? Wait until you get to week 17. You're gonna need a drink.

L @ CHI: Start storming the Cassel, even though the 1st 2 weeks are divisional road games.

W Vs CLE: Battle of run games. Vikes 1st home game. AD>TR.

L Vs PIT: A home game that isn't at home? Feature game? Yeah, it didn't work at The Bank, either. Fans go nuts for sliders and 3-named saviors.

W Vs CAR: Cam Newton, star QB? Jared Allen says no. Vikes 2-3

L @ NYG: If this was in November, the Giants wouldn't show up. It's still October.

W Vs GB: Put up or shut up time for the Vikes. AD vs. Pack @ Dome. Yeah, the season doesn't end today.

W @ DAL: It's Thanksgiving! It's Tony Romo at his best! You're right. Neither is true. Vikes pull to .500.

W Vs WAS: RGIII owns the Vikes… during a home game. 3 in a row? Are the Vikes going to the playoffs? Vikes have a winning record (finally)!

L @ SEA: Wouldn't this be a great win to start the final stretch run? Don't be such a homer. Back to mediocre.

L @ GB: Hey, let's sweep the Packers! Wait, is Rodgers still upright? Dangitall. The Vikes are 1 game below .500 this late in the season, leading to discussions about Joe Webb.

W Vs. CHI: Division win! 6-6! Bring on the 4-game win streak!

L @ BAL: Whoops. 6-7.

W Vs PHI: This .500 thing is getting old. But wins are nice.

W @ CIN: Cincy's winning the Super Bowl! AD runs for 150. Merry Xmas, Bungles. It ain't over yet. Vikes 8-7.

W Vs DET: Just missed the playoffs (see the spreadsheet). But hey, let's discuss the offseason, Christian Ponder, a 9-7 record, and the 19th selection in the Draft. Good spot for a non-superstar QB... like Johnny Football. Sounds awesome, right? Oh, and remember that week 1 "woulda/shoulda/coulda" at Detroit? If they had bothered to show up for that game, they make the playoffs as the 6th seed, followed by a winnable NYG game, AD's redemption on the road vs. the Saints*, and a game against SF where the Vikes match up well. It's fun being a Vikes fan... right?

After all is said and done, here's who makes the playoffs:

AFC (in order of seeding): New England (12-4), Houston (11-5), Cincinnati (10-6), Denver (10-6), wild cards to Indy and KC (both 9-7).

I've got KC as the team "no one sees coming." Denver beats Indy. KC upsets Cincy. New England beats KC. Houston beats Denver. Suck it, Tom Brady. Texans get to go to the Super Bowl.

NFC: San Francisco (13-3), New Orleans (11-5 w/ their powderpuff schedule... dirty cheaters...), Green Bay (10-6) NYG (10-6), wild cards Seattle (12-4) and St. Louis (10-6). Yup. I'm going with the Rams as the surprise team this year.

I've got the Giants beating the Rams, and Seattle ABSOLUTELY PASTING the Packers. The Giants then eye a "home" Super Bowl and take it to Brees & Company, while the "real Super Bowl" is played between the 49ers and the Seahawks. San Francisco then takes care of the Giants on San Fran's home turf. Sorry, Eli.

SUPER BOWL

I've got some extra troll snark in the spreadsheet. Just read the playoff section. Needless to say, this is one of those games where the commercials better be awesome. Because the game is gonna be a mess. San Fran in another big Super Bowl victory. Bring forth the BSPN to prognosticate Harbaugh family domination for the next decade. Sorry, Mannings. You'll still get to do ESPN and Oreo commercials, though, which is nice. I guess.

So... have at it Norsemen. I've been picking on you for about 6,000 posts now. It's time to return the favor. I'll try to defend my picks in the comments. It's more likely, though, I'm gonna go hide under the bridge until this is all proven correct.

Enjoy the season! Fa la la la la, la la... la ... WTF MUSGRAVE! WHAT WERE YOU THINKING!?!?...

PLAYOFFS
WILD CARD
KAN @CIN KAN CIN Sorry, CIN, this is what happens when you're "the darling" vs. the "did not see them coming."
IND @DEN DEN IND I almost picked IND in Luck's upset of Manning. Nah, Peyton wouldn't choke 2 consecutive 1st round playoff games, would he?
SEA @GB SEA GB This one would be close… if GB knew how to tackle a RB. BEAST.MODE!
STL @NYG NYG STL Hey, NYG back in the playoffs! Super Bowl home game, here we come! Anyone else notice STL slipping in as the "other" NFC West team?
DIVISIONAL
KAN @NE NE KAN That was a nice run, KAN. Good turn around season. Did I mention Tom Brady just kicked your arse?
DEN @HOU HOU DEN I didn't just set up what I *think* I set up… did I? Brady v Manning, Round… whatever? *Whew!* Nope. JJ Watt and Arian Foster lead HOU to the conference championship!
SEA @SF SF SEA This is the *real* Super Bowl, right? It's just 3 weeks early. Harbaugh in a home game.
NYG @NO NYG NO Thank God Eli grew up here. He believes this is a home game. Sorry, NO. You're damn dirty cheaters, and your D cannot handle Eli. NYG D *can* handle Brees.
CONFERENCE
NYG @SF So everyone's talking Walsh vs. Parcells, because "everyone" is really old and senile. Harbaugh is having none of it.
HOU @NE Tom Brady makes a Peyton face when he realizes he's the only talent on this team. They only made it here through ANOTHER low SOS and a favorable draw vs. KAN. Oops. Houston's a LOT better. JJ Watt tucks the ball so far up Brady, Gisele is called in at halftime to pull it out.
SUPER BOWL
SF HOU Remember when SF would dominate the Super Bowl? Here, let Harbaugh remind you as he crushes the opposition. He's caught on camera screaming at Kubiak. He keeps calling him John. Kubiak's too afraid to correct him. NOW Jim can have his cake. SF hoists the trophy...again. They're so much better than the Pack. It's not even close.
