Media Personalities Make Their 2010-2011 NFL Predictions

Politics Daily reached out to a number of prominent journalists and media personalities to get their predictions for the 2010-2011 NFL season.

A small selection of their picks:

NBC’s Chuck Todd likes the Green Bay Packers and Indianapolis Colts… though he admits a bias:

“I’m going with Packers-Colts . . . and not just because I’m a Packer fan. Aaron Rodgers will finally get the [Brett] Favre monkey off his back and beat the Vikings (TWICE).” Todd also argued the New York Jets are overrated, and went out on a limb with a wild prediction: “Two dark horse teams from the AFC . . . Texans and Dolphins.”

Fox News Channel’s Brian Kilmeade takes the New York Giants and Baltimore Ravens:

“I like New York on the ground . . . and their receiving corps is the best in their history. As for the Ravens, look at these two new wide-outs — Anquan Boldin and [T.J.] Houshmanzadeh — couple that with Ray Rice and stellar D — along with a great coach and fans and you have super recipe.”

Other personalities quizzed include FNC’s Gretchen Carlson, MSNBC’s Willie Geist, pundit S.E. Cupp and Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas.

Elsewhere, NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams appeared on NFL Network yesterday to talk about the New Orleans Saints.
