Six teams to miss the playoffs

Saw this thread in years past on the forum so I wanted to bring it up again. If you were to take the suckers bet to name 6 teams that won't make the playoffs, who would you take? I'd guess the leading candidates are:

Jets
Bills
Browns
49ers
Bears

Who would be your sixth pick? Would you remove any of the above?

Re: Six teams to miss the playoffs

Those 5 + Rams will be the most popular. I would consider the Lions as well.

Re: Six teams to miss the playoffs

I would go with the 49ers, Bears, Jags, Rams, Browns, and the Jets. Just posting this to see if I would have won the sucker bet in a few months.

Re: Six teams to miss the playoffs

I think the Bengals are doomed this season too; not as strong as other candidates but just a diff option

Those 5 and Jax, Indy or Baltimore (in that order).

The 5 and Jax would be my pick. MIA is up there too, I'm not sold on Jake Cutler.

Re: Six teams to miss the playoffs

Can we revise after week 1? I would remove the Bills and put the Colts in. They looked really awful.

Re: Six teams to miss the playoffs

Bears will still miss playoffs but they played well against last year's NFC champs.

Colts (w/o Luck) legitimately have the worst roster top to bottom outside of maybe the Jets.

Re: Six teams to miss the playoffs

Browns
Jets
Chargers
Rams
49ers
Bears

That's who my bettor chose. Before last night, they were a combined 1-11. Uggh.

I would not go that far. Rams could certainly surprise

Re: Six teams to miss the playoffs

I think with the QB class coming and the need to tank for them, this year was a year you could profitably make this bet. I think a lot of people suspected the Colts were quite eager to tank and hold Luck out for quite a long time too (not for a QB but because all those teams taking QB's top 5 are gonna skip on 2 other elite OL/DE). Missed this thread but I would have done:

49ers
Browns
Jets
Colts (just liked the Titans/Jags way more)
Bears
Saints (that division)

Those saying the Bengals would have been pretty sharp. That's one I didn't see coming, but did not pay attention to their FA, camp, etc...

It's strange that this many weeks in you're #1 sweat is probably Jets all things considered (obviously, not a real concern lol) - nice lineup

Re: Six teams to miss the playoffs
