SBM NFL crystal ball

By J-Dub and Ryan Meehan

Over the next few weeks, the group here at Sports Blog Movement will be breaking down the upcoming NFL season from all possible angles, including many that do not involve wearing pants.  Given all of Meehan’s citations for indecent exposure and J-Dubs’ inability to find any pants that actually fit, we’re just the guys to kick this thing off and let you know what we have planned here at SBM over the next couple of weeks.  Here’s what you can expect:

  • August 21st – AFC East – SBM Contributor Patrick Young
  • August 22nd – NFC East – SBM Contributor Ryan Meehan
  • August 23rd – AFC North – SBM Contributor Patrick Young
  • August 24th – NFC North – SBM Contributor Jeremy Wiebe
  • August 25th – AFC South – SBM Contributor Kody Brannon
  • August 26th – NFC South – SBM Contributor Jeremy Wiebe
  • August 27th – AFC West -SBM Contributor Ryan Graham
  • August 28th – NFC West – SBM Contributor Ryan Graham
  • August 29th – SBM Exclusive – The Ex-Kicker’s Round Table on the 2013 NFL Contenders & Pretenders – J-Dub
