I think we all know the Pats, Colts, and Chargers are the top contenders, but better not sleep on the Broncos after they acquired Dre Bly and Travis Henry, and the Ravens after they acquired Willis McGaheee !! Here's how I see the ranking of the AFC's top contenders: 1)Patriots - filled all their holes and reloaded, plus still have 2 first rounders. They almost won it all last year, so look out. 2)Colts - defending champs, they're the best until they're beaten. 3)Chargers - you know they will be a very very determined team this year, and they have toms of talent. 4)Broncos - if Jay Payton comes of age, this team could explode. Bly and Henry are serious upgrades to an already terrific team. 5)Ravens - Don't look now, but that defense is getting an offense. MArk Clayton really developed last year, McNAir will be in his second year with the team, and they replaced the plodding Lewis with the explosive McGahee. Their defense is historic, so don't just assume they aren't that good. 6)Bengals - still gotta prove they can play tough D. 7)Jets - Thomas Jones was a GREAT pickup and they will get better through the draft as well. Mangini will keep them playing tough, smart, and disciplined. 8)Chiefs - with Huard at QB they will be better, and with Edwards and HArris added at LB they will defend better. Could become really tough if they ever get some WR's. 9)Steelers - can they win without Bettis, Porter, and Cowher ?? They still have Roethislberger, Ward, Parker, and a tough D, but they'll have to prove they can still hang with the big boys with a new coach. 10) Jaguars - tough D and good running game, they just can't seem to put it together in the passing game. If they ever do, they could arrive. ??Titans?? - not ready for prime time yet.
