2017 Finish – 1st 11-5 #3 Seed Lost in NFC Divisional Round

Team Owner: John Fichera

OVERALL RATING: 84

The Vikings defense can be dominant, but their success comes on offense. John Fichera showed he belonged last season, and that will continue in 2018. The new owner has provided evidence that he will be a force in season, and out. We may have another draft guru.

Opposing Coach Comment

Vikings, they’re tough, they execute well, they don’t beat themselves. They’re blue collar.

Prediction – 2nd, NFC #5 Seed, Loss in Divisional Round

2017 Finish – 2nd 9-7 

Team Owner: BlackPaw

OVERALL RATING: 83

The Lions underachieved last season. Not by roster construct, but from User performance. BlackPaw lost Stafford, and didn’t recover. This season will be different. the multiple Sim Association Champion is devastating in coverage, and now has weapons to put his high powered offensive style to work. Good luck, rest of the NFL.

Opposing Coach Comment

The Lions sleep tonight. Where were the Lions last year? Don’t expect back to back disappointing years from that team.

Prediction – 1st, NFC #3 Seed, Loss in Divisional Round

2017 Finish – 3rd 8-8

Team Owner: ChiefMoe

OVERALL RATING: 87

Another new addition to the Sim Association, ChiefMoe is here to throw. If you don’t have the stomach for the air game, don’t watch his twitch stream. With a top 5 Overall team in the league, ChiefMoe will need to bring some Defense this season to compete for a playoff postion

Opposing Coach Comment

The Packers are always to be feared. In particular Rodgers makes every defense look silly.

Prediction – 3rd, Misses Playoffs

2017 Finish – 4th 2-14

Team Owner: Jay Twizzle

OVERALL RATING: 86

Jay Twizzle joined in the off season and immediately made an impact. New players everywhere. We’ll have to watch him as the season progresses to get a handle on his style. The fourth place predicted finish? The other 3 owners showed they can play last season, now is it Twizzle Time?
