Only way to describe Gregg Easterbrook's, aka Tuesday Morning Quarterback, column on bad predictions posted yesterday on ESPN.com's Page 2. TMQ keeps all those predictions and forecasts made by all the "pundits" and "experts", then takes a look at how good they did. And boy howdy there's some doosies.

My personal favorites are all of the horrible Nick Saban predictions: Nick Saban Predictions: Mark Maske of the Washington Post:
"Nick Saban has the look of being a big-time NFL coach, and it won't be long before he has the Dolphins in Super Bowl contention." Bill Williamson of the Denver Post: "Nick Saban is building something special in Miami." ESPN's John Clayton: "Nick Saban … will catch or pass the Patriots" in 2006. The Associated Press: Miami will win the AFC East because "Players have bought into Nick Saban's system." Peter King on NBC's "Football Night in America" on December 31, 2006: "Nick Saban does not want to go anywhere. Saban is not going to leave the Miami Dolphins. Saban is not going to go to Alabama. Saban is not going anywhere." Three days later Saban took the Alabama job. Nick Saban: "I'm not going to be the Alabama coach."
Particularly the inclusion of Saban himself. Priceless.

Anyway, give it a read. It's funny even if you don't like and don't know football, and it's hilarious if you do.
