The most improved team

The 49ers will be unrecognizable with the return of Jimmy Garoppolo. Enough to do the series? Not convinced, but going from a 4-12 record to a positive one would be a big step.


The disappointment of the year

I'm hoping to crash because the NFL is constantly in need of electrifying athletes like Lamar Jackson, but I think the Ravens' quarterback will be on the heels of the second year. He has more experience, of course, but the defensive coordinators will have made a happy mission to study it from every angle.

It may be too easy to go again with Patrick Mahomes, but is the purpose of the predictions to try to win or surprise? Mahomes has all the tools to prove that 2018 was not a mirage and he remains very well surrounded by the attack.


Recruits of the year

Four of the last six offensive rookies of the year were ball carriers. This time we go with David Montgomery, Bears, who can run and collect his lot of passes. Defensively, Devin Bush, linebacker of the Steelers, will get the prize.

Freddie Kitchens, who else? If the prophecy comes true and the Browns really carve a place in the playoffs, the bunching offensive guru who is in his first year at the controls will have his statue in front of the stadium on the spot.

In the American conference: Patriots, Browns, Steelers, Texans, Chiefs and Chargers. In the national conference: Eagles, Vikings, Bears, Falcons, Saints and Rams.


The winner of the 53e Super Bowl

Who says it's the defense that wins championships? The Chiefs and their offensive superhero powers will earn the second title in franchise history at the expense of a more complete team, the Eagles.

The most improved team

The Cleveland Browns. Already they had a good kernel, they have fished a lot of players in addition to acquiring star pass receiver Odell Beckham and defensive players Olivier Vernon and Sheldon Richardson. They could go far.


The disappointment of the year

The disappointment is already the Indianapolis Colts. Losing Andrew Luck is a huge management mistake. The Colts have poorly protected their quarter-star. As a result, the Colts will dive into the standings of their division, which some saw division champions before the sudden withdrawal of Andrew Luck.

The most useful player is Tom Brady. He will continue to lead his team in sets by cutting off the opposing defenses with his arm and his precise and fast readings of the opposing defenses. A great season to predict for him despite quarantine.


Recruits of the year

In attack, I see Chicago Bears running back David Montgomery. In defense, I would say Devin White, defensive lineman of Tampa Bay Bucs.


Head Coach of the Year




Bill Bellichick

Bill Bellichick

My prediction, Bill Bellichick. Do not be surprised if the Pats have a perfect season. Their defense has greatly improved. And we know their attack …

In the American, Patriots, Steelers, Browns, Chiefs, Chargers and Titans. In the national, Eagles, Vikings, Bears, Falcons, Saints and Rams.


The winner of the 53e Super Bowl

The Saints of New Orleans. Between you and me, this team should have been 52e Super Bowl, but the mistake of a referee cost him the conference final against the Rams. They will be hungry and ready for revenge this year.

Denis Casavant

The most improved team

The Baltimore Ravens won 10 victories last season finishing first in the North Division. During the off-season, they promoted Greg Roman to the position of attack coordinator and signed up Mark Ingram. Lamar Jackson will greatly benefit from these two additions. Roman led the 49ers attack when they reached the Super Bowl with Colin Kaepernick at quarterback.


The disappointment of the year

In the same section, the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the emergence of the Cleveland Browns and the losses of Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown and a 37-year-old Big Ben, the Steelers will finish third behind the Ravens and Browns.

Quarterback Jared Goff of the Rams. In his third season in Sean McVay's system, the 24-year-old could reach the 40-goal touchdown plateau.


Recruits of the year

In attack, running back David Montgomery will be an impact player with the Bears. In defense, it will watch Devin Bush Steelers. The linebacker is a veneer machine.


Head Coach of the Year

Matt Nagy of the Chicago Bears. In his second season at the helm of the Bears, Nagy will lead his team in the association final with a formidable attack led by Mitch Trubisky.

On the side of the American association: Patriots, Ravens, Browns, Texans, Chiefs, Chargers. In the national: Cowboys, Eagles, Bears, Packers, Saints and Rams.


The winner of the 53e Super Bowl

The Rams will recover with this time the Kansas City Chiefs in a duel between Jared Goff and Patrick Mahomes.

Charles-Antoine Sinotte

The most improved team

The Atlanta Falcons were all injured last year. Almost half of the starters have been put on the long-term injury list. Still, the team finished with a 7-9 record, and the tandem Matt Ryan / Julio Jones had one of his best campaigns.


The disappointment of the year

As much as I like to see the Baltimore Ravens league evolve, it's still impossible to have constant success with a one-dimensional quarter. Lamar Jackson will lose his element of surprise (as in the last portion of last season), and the loss of their leader in defense – CJ Mosley – will harm the unity of the unit.

Matt Ryan probably has the best receiver group in the NFL (Jones, Sanu and Ridley). Last year, he presented stats similar to those of his MVP season in 2016 and this season finds his former offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter.


Recruits of the year

David Montgomery, Bears. The Bears have talent everywhere and can claim great honors. Following the departure of Jordan Howard, their choice of 3e round can be put to use. Quinnen Williams, Jets NY. The former Alabama has a great training camp and he fits in this revival of the Jets. New linebacker CJ Mosley risks highlighting Williams' work.


Head Coach of the Year

Anthony Lynn, of the Chargers, could have obtained this title last year with a record of 12-4. The Chargers have learned to win and return this season with talent to all positions. At his 3e season in office, he is building a solid reputation.

In the American conference: Patriots, Chargers, Steelers, Jaguars, Chiefs and Browns. In the national conference: Rams, Eagles, Bears, Falcons, Cowboys and Saints.


The winner of the 53e Super Bowl

Melvin Gordon is the one who can make everything switch for the Chargers, but for a 2e year in a row there will be a Los Angeles Super Bowl team. This time, she will triumph against the Chicago Bears.

The most improved team

The surprise retirement of Andrew Luck has just shaken the state of the forces in the South Division of the American conference, which could open the door to Jacksonville Jaguars. Newcomer to quarterback Nick Foles inspires the players around him. It will stabilize the quarter position. The defense will be one of the strengths of this team, which can also rely on the imposing running back Leonard Fournette. Do not be surprised if Doug Marrone's men sneak into playoffs this year.


The disappointment of the year

The Oakland Raiders and the eccentric Antonio Brown. When you practically derail your team's training camp for a helmet model story, there is a serious problem. Jon Gruden will regret this transaction with the Steelers all season … The next crisis in the media number 84 is not far!

James Conner. The Steelers ground game will allow Mike Tomlin's protégés to return to the playoffs in 2019. In 13 games last year, Conner has collected nearly 1,500 yards of ground gain and through the air. Jump on this player in your football pools, it will pay!


Recruits of the year

On offense, I like the chances of Oakland Raiders rookie rookie Josh Jacobs, while he will have a ton of opportunities in a field-back where he lacks depth. At least one good news for the "Silver and Black"! While in defense, I think it's going to be played between Steelers Devin Bush linebacker and defensive end Patriots Chase Winovich. I opt for the latter, while no one has managed to block it since the beginning of the camp and exhibition games.


Head Coach of the Year

A little love for the Jags, this less popular team playing in a small market. If his men reach the post-season tournament, Doug Marrone could very well win this honor.

AFC: Patriots, Steelers, Browns, Jaguars, Chargers and Chiefs. NFC: Bears, Vikings, Saints, Rams, Seahawks, Eagles.


The winner of the 53e Super Bowl

We'll have our Super Bowl Saints / Patriots! And since Bill Belichick is still the coach of the Pats and a number 12 is still in control of the attack, we wonder how it could end differently.

The most improved team

The Jets will give New York a bit of pride with a season that will surprise many. Additions from C.J. Mosley and Le'Veon Bell will pay off, while quarterback Sam Darnold will be much more effective in his second season in the Big Apple. An easy calendar will allow the Jets to sneak in series.


The disappointment of the year

The finalists of the last Super Bowl will not be able to meet the high expectations placed in them. Although the Rams have a lot of talent, there is still some doubt about the ability of quarterback Jared Goff to deliver the goods in important moments. An improved division and losses on the attacking line will help to make the playoffs miss the California squad.

Russell Wilson is more than ever the face of the Seahawks and remains a dominant quarterback. Supported by a strong ground attack, he will experience the best season of his career.


Recruits of the year

Jets tackle Quinnen Williams is simply a force of nature. His explosion inside the defensive line of the Jets will be noticed everywhere in the league. The Raiders' carrier, Josh Jacobs, is a must-have on offense.


Head Coach of the Year

Adam Gase will coach Freddie Kitchens at the finish line to win this honor. Gase will use a recipe that has been proven in the NFL for decades to bring the Jets into playoffs: a strong defense and run the ball effectively.

In the American conference: Patriots, Jets, Browns, Steelers, Jaguars and Chiefs. In the national conference: Eagles, Vikings, Bears, Falcons, Saints and Seahawks.


The winner of the 53e Super Bowl

The Saints will win the precious trophy while they have the Patriots. Drew Brees will prove he is the current league's top forty-year pivot by finishing with the most valuable player trophy in the game. It's time to prepare the festivities on Bourbon Street.
