LOST NFL Standings for 2008 (Updated)

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…

Now as season 5 of Lost gets started, we take a look back on the year that was to see how we did.  A check mark next to a picture means we feel pretty good about the character we picked for that team (even if the record was a little off).
