It’s only July, and NFL training campshave yet to open, so this may not seem like the best time tobe making predictions on the 2008 Super Bowl. But there’snothing wrong with taking a look at what teams have done toimprove their rosters during the off-season, and taking a flyeron where they might end up when the 2007-08 season wraps.

AFC East Champion – New England Patriots (12 wins)
AFC West Champion – Denver Broncos (11 wins)
AFC South Champion – Indianapolis Colts (12 wins)

Wild Card Teams: PittsburghSteelers (10 wins); San Diego Chargers (10 wins)

Round One:

Dallas at Chicago: This would be a typical goodoffense vs. good defense matchup, with the Bear’s defensebeing slightly better than the Cowboys’ offense.

New Orleans at Seattle: New Orleans was thetoast of the NFL last season, but there’s a question withdepth going into this season. Seattle advances if for no otherreason that home-field advantage.

Pittsburgh at Cincinnati: Ben Roethlisbergerhas had a full year to recover from the injuries he sufferedin a motorcycle accident just a few months after winning the2006 Super Bowl.

San Diego at Denver: Denver will take the division,but San Diego will at least partially make up for last year’splayoff exit by advancing.

Round Two:

Chicago at Philadelphia: Defense wins championships– or at least NFL playoff games. Chicago should advancebut this will be a tight, tough game.

Seattle at Carolina: Carolina has tremendousdepth and this could be a break-out year.

Pittsburgh at New England: This will be an aerialbattle between Roethlisberger and Pat’s pivot Tom Brady,who will lead his team to the AFC Championship (and beyond).

San Diego at Indianapolis: It ends early againfor San Diego. The coaching change will prove to be largelyineffective, at least in the post-season.

NFC Championship:

Carolina at Chicago: With a healthy Jake Delhommeand Steve Smith, the Panthers offense could be one of the bestin the NFL this season. But it will hit a brick wall known asthe Bears defense.

AFC Championship:

Indianapolis at New England: The NFL’stwo best quarterbacks go head to head, and the one that emergesthe winner will be the one whose team went out a signed a squadronof new receivers. In other words, Brady.

Super Bowl XLII:

New England vs. Chicago:

This is Brady’s year, plain and simple.
