Ah, yes, September football. The records are all the same. The weather is still comfortable. And potential still trumps the depressing reality that usually sets in around Week 7 that your squad is free-falling to yet another disappointing season.

The following 12 highly educated guesses however? We’re not 100% positive, but we feel mighty confident in our multiple hypotheses. Will they piss some of you off? Of course, but it’s football season. Man up. It’s going to get a lot worse than this as the weeks go by anyway.
