Re: Who Ya Got? (AFC version)
At this point I see:
Patriots win division easily. Anywhere from 11-5 to 14-2
Dolphins are second best, struggling to .500.
Jets and Bill each win somewhere from 3 to 6 games depending on who they hit on the right day, and how the ball bounces
Not sold on Cincy, think they will slide back to around .500.
Ravens have had a lot of turnover and were pretty mediocre until they got hot and rode it last year.See them somewhere from 7-9 to 9-7 also.
Pittsburgh is a quality organization and a well coached team but don't have the talent to be a SB contender. I see 10 wins and the division.
Browns will upset some people and look like they are going in the right direction with 5-7 wins.
Houston peaked and is going the other way but still have enough in a weak division to to win it with 11 wins or so.
The Colts are not as good as last year made them appear and will come back down to .500
Titans are weak at QB and dont have the defense to overcome it and win more than 5-6 games.
Jags are a disaster
Play against the NFCE and AFCS so at least 1 wc figures to come out of here.
Broncos take a step back in the reg season but still win the division prior to the next one and done for Manning.
Chiefs benefit from new coach weak schedule and weak division. Should get one wild card based on that.
Chargers should be a surprise because of weak schedule so should be in .500 range.
Raiders are awful.
So to summarze.
Jags and Raiders are hopeless.
Jets, Bills, Browns, Titans are 6 wins or less.
10 teams in the hunt.
Chiefs are one wild card
Bengals, Chargers, Ravens, Dolphins, Colts are all pretty much .500 teams that will fight for the last spot, depending on injuries and how they develop as a team and are coached.
Could be any of them, if I have to chose, I'll go Bengals.
Neither wc team puts up much of a threat.
Some combination of
Texans/Steelers at Patriots/Broncos in the divisional round and whichever goes to Mile High to see Peytononeanddone.9 comes here for the AFCCG
