On JUN 2nd, Nate Davis of USA TODAY wrote an article predicting the entire 2014 NFL Season. By way of background, Nate Davis went thru the exact same exercise for the 2013 Season whereby, he correctly predicted the Seahawks would beat the Broncos in the SuperBowl.
His bold 2014 predictions include:
1) Colts winning the AFC South with a record of 13-3; not only the best record in the AFC, but also the best record in the NFL
2) Colts beating the Ravens in the Divisional round
3) Colts winning the AFC Championship by beating the Broncos
4) Colts advancing to the Superbowl to play against the Seahawks...unfortunately, he believes we'll come up short.

Now, I don't know Nate Davis. I don't know if his predictions last year were a fluke. I don't know if his predictions for 2014 will become a reality.
What I do know, however, is that he see's what many of us see in the 2014 Colts. A team that will be more improved than last year. A team that is loaded with offensive weapons. A team that will have a "presence" on the defensive side of the ball.
By the end of SuperBowl 50, Nate Davis will either be a Genius or an Idiot. Kudos to him for taking the road less travelled...unlike many other so called media pundits.
