    I agree with most of this. He has the same top 3 in the AFC as I do. And the same top 2 in the NFC as I do.

    The Colts won't be the worst team in the league though. But, until proven otherwise I don't blame people for ranking them last. When you have a rookie QB/HC there will be doubts. But, it won't be worse then Caldwell/Painter. The future is bright.

    Houston has very high expectations. They need to live up to this. This is their shot in the AFC right now. It's open. The road is paved.

    Not Bad, I dont think the Steelers are going to be that high, but I don't think there are very many changes he would need to make to that list.

    They could be. It's their "luck". It often happens. They get lucky. I hate it.

    Baltimore had a heart breaking loss in the AFC title game and have lost Suggs already.

    I can see Pitts winning the North right now. The Steelers o line should be improved.

    Works for me. I have to see it to believe it though lol. I hope Cincy can take over for either the Steelers/Ravens. But, they won't sneak up on anyone this season.

    Heck I would love to see the Bills win the AFC East. Unless Brady gets hurt I doubt it happens.

    I think San Diego might win the West actually. They seem almost "due" for a good year again. Rivers sucked last year and he is far too good to do it again. And the Chargers hate the Mannings after Eli refused them. They have never had issues with beating Peyton. I am not sure if it was a Colts thing or a Manning thing with SD either. Will find out this season.

    Crennel has owned Peyton too.

    Peyton has taken on some of his biggest issues in the league head on this season.

    I would have flipped the Pats and the Texans and I wouldn't have ranked the Falcons so highly. Baltimore and Chicago should both be a few slots higher.

    If this guy had anything to say that was dead on was his views on the Broncos. I think they have a lot more issues than QB, and the Tebow Train and all the ridiculous things that involve him have left the stadium. I think they have a decent year in that division and will probably make the playoffs but I don't see them as a better team than NE, Houston, Pittsburg, Baltimore, or maybe even Cincy although the division they play in might lead the Bengals to a lower record.

    If Brady was to get hurt I believe the Jets wouldwin the AFC east. They're not much better than the bills but they are better.

    The Chiefs are a team who intrigue me as well in the West. The way they ended the year defensively at least made me notice them.

    The AFC West is an enigma to me.

    I do believe GB & the 49ers will be seeded 1 & 2 this year. The NFC east will be a tough fight for the div. title. Saints are rated too high. I'd rate'em around 15-18. Panthers should make the playoffs by 2013. If N. Farley can stay away from the pot & Suh doesn't do anything stupid the NFC north will finish the same as last year. My picks for the playoffs are as follows.
    1 Packers 1 Texans
    2 49ers 2 Patriots
    3 Eagles 3 Steelers
    4 Lions 4 Denver
    5 Falcons 5 Jets
    6 NYGs 6 Chargers
    There's usually about 5 teams that make the playoffs that didn't make it the prev. year. I've only got 3 diff teams so it'll be interesting to see

    Yeah, there are often a handful of new division winners every year.

    If I have to do it that way I will go:

    NFC East, NFC West, NFC South=new division winners

    AFC West, AFC North=new division winners

    Texans/Patriots/Packers repeat

    Starting in 2002, which was the first season the NFL included eight divisions, at least one team that’s finished last in their division one year has wound up winning their division a year later in every single season.

    This years candidates: Bills, Colts, Browns, Chiefs, Redskins, Vikings, Rams, Bucs

    I'd go Chiefs based on the list.

    Would prefer COLTS.:D

    Looking forward to seeing Donatari Poe play. I think he's going to be a good player

    The Lions can't be the #4 seed. The first four seeds are division winners only. In your scenario, the Falcons would be the #4 seed and the Lions would be #5.

    I don't want the Lions to make the playoffs.

    I just want the Packers from the North.

    I think there's a better chance of 2 teams coming from the NFC north & NFC east than just 1 team (Packers)from the NFC north & having 2 teams come from the NFC south or west

    It'll be close between dabears & Lions for 2nd & 3rd in our div. I do think Shea McClellin will eventually be a good DE for da bears
