Gentlemen of the KRFL, book your tickets in advance to get the best prices on travel and hotels. The 2019 Super Bowl will be between the upstart Des Moines Monks and the Bronx Cyclones. I really don't see any point in playing out the season since the numbers tell me that this matchup is inevitable so thanks for playing and I'll see you all next year. If you insist that we go through the motions, let me tell you how the KRFL's greatest (if only) prognosticator came to this conclusion.



It will be tough but this could be the year that Bensalem finally beats Penn State to take the division title. I say "could" because their pass defense remains weak but this year the Penn State receiving corp is even weaker. QB Carson Wentz will still have to beat the always stout Penn State defense so I give the nod to the Lions. Kutztown and Warrington are gonna need a heckuva motivational speaker to exceed this forecast and I'm afraid Knute Rockne is no longer around.
Penn State 10-6
Bensalem 9-7
Kutztown 6-10
Warrington 6-10


Perennial contender SW Florida should easily win the division with only Moline as a threat. Last year's Coach of the Year, James Riley, has a team just as bad as last year's Kentucky squad but he is an over-achiever. Somebody please give Black Hills a QB.
SW Florida 11-5
Moline 8-8
Kentucky 6-10
Black Hills 4-12

If you're wondering where all the good qbs are, you'll find them in this division. Heck, Atlanta has two in Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck. The statistical best, though, is Drew Brees of the Bronx. With the talent amassed to support him, the Cyclones this year are the team to beat. Barcelona's underwhelming running game won't do Phillip Rivers any favors and Bay City, who blew up their team last season to accumulate a couple of hundred rookie draft picks, is a couple years away.
Bronx 14-2
Atlanta 11-5
Bay City 9-7
Barcelona 7-9


There are no glaring weaknesses in a Des Moines team led by phenom QB Patrick Mahomes. Pencil in a loss when you play them unless you are feeling really lucky. If anyone can matchup with them, it's the defense first sack-happy Salem Steers who aren't quite in their usual Super Bowl contending form but are still formidable. The two grunge city teams in Seattle remain a little grungy.
Des Moines 14-2
Salem 10-6
Seattle 7-9
West Seattle 6-10

Tampa Bay is a strong and balanced team that by my reckoning is the second best in the conference. They should not overlook Rolling Green's quick strike offense. Cleveland and Vancouver? meh.
Tampa Bay 12-4
Rolling Green 10-6
Cleveland 6-10
Vancouver 5-11

The division of top to bottom equality and mediocrity. Your guess is as good as mine.
Alabama 8-8
Edison 8-8
New York 8-8
Newark 6-10

Very cool post, Steve! Although I prefer an underdog role. Please revise my prediction! ;-)
