Predicted NFL Standings for 2008  

Last year, we asked ourselves, "How should we present our predictions for the season?"  Using Star Wars characters was the obvious answer.  But now, it's a new season, and no matter how much we love all things Lucas, we simply cannot justify raising our nerdiness to Urkelian heights by doing Star Wars again. When we first made that choice, we felt a little lost. And then it came to us...LOST!

Um, maybe we need some help...
