NFL Network Spends Entire Segment Predicting The Wrong Seattle Seahawks Schedule [Update]

Professional moron Heath Evans joined Elliot Harrison yesterday during live training camp coverage on NFL Network to discuss and predict this year’s Seattle Seahawks schedule—but at no point did either of them realize that the results they were predicting already happened.

Yes, that’s the 2016 schedule up there. NFL Network’s experts concluded Seattle would finish 11-5, and damn if they weren’t pretty close to what actually happened last year—the Seahawks finished 10-5-1, of course. (They got a bunch of the individual game results wrong, though.)

For the record, here’s the schedule Seattle is playing this season:

  • Week 1: at Green Bay
  • Week 2: San Francisco
  • Week 3: at Tennessee
  • Week 4: Indianapolis
  • Week 5: at L.A. Rams
  • Week 6: bye
  • Week 7: at New York Giants
  • Week 8: Houston
  • Week 9: Washington
  • Week 10: at Arizona
  • Week 11: Atlanta
  • Week 12: at San Francisco
  • Week 13: Philadelphia
  • Week 14: at Jacksonville
  • Week 15: L.A. Rams
  • Week 16: at Dallas
  • Week 17: Arizona

It’s still July.

Update (9:03 a.m.): As several commenters pointed out, if you actually listen to what they’re saying the video appears to have been recorded a year ago, making its appearance on NFL Network even more confusing—given that the programming is supposed to be “live.”
