NE Patriots- yes, there are new faces and stalwarts like Viantieri, McGinest, etc,.. are gone but no duo is better than Belichick and Pioli in personnel management. The Pats blew it in Denver last January and they should have been hosting the AFC Championship game. Brady wants another ring and is still fuming after losing to a beatable Broncos team which if it weren't for Patriots turnovers may never have scored at all. The Patriots defense found a way to overcome injuries again last season and once the defense started clicking there is no doubt that the Pats front seven is arguably the best in the NFL and with a healthy Bruschi and Rodney Harrison coming back the Patriots only get better. Belichick and Co. will use the same strategy that in 2004, 2003 and 2001 that won them the Super Bowl- Ball control, punishing defense, and special teams. I hear some sports pundits saying New England's reign as Champions is over but only fools think that way. This team is still loaded with talent and believe me Belichick, Brady, and Co. will be raising the Lombardi trophy a few more times before it is all said and done.
The Patriots will most likely go 13-3 and will win the Super Bowl vs Carolina Panthers
AFC Team to watch-out for- Miami Dolphins (Saban-Belichick Disciple poised to make a statement)
NFC Team to watch out for- Atlanta Falcons (Improved defense and a sense of urgency could propel this team to the top)
AFC Most disappointing= Indianapolis Colts (Edge is gone and the defense is still weak)
NFC Most Disappointing= Dallas Cowboys (T.O. will continue his egotistical ways and cause dissension for
Parcells and Bledsoe)

San Diego Super Chargers!!!!!
AFC West will be tough though. I figure 2nd in the division, but still a wild card playoff team. We go out first round, Rivers gains valuable experience. Now the problem is Rivers, and no one knows how he will do this season. But im thinking the offense he has around him will make it easier on him.

ive always liked the chargers but you really got to wonder what gonna happen with all that talent on the offense led by an unproven QB

Cleveland Browns. They have got alot of new guys this year, and have alot of players now that grew up in Cleveland. I like that. They do have a future imo. This year it would be nice to go 8-8. But next year and the year after might surprise many. Lots of talent and we'll see how Crennel puts it together.

Browns are Cursed...they just lost their best O-Lineman to a serious injury during camp...LeCharles Bently is bye bye

only two teams can be in the superbowl and its gonna be a long road to miami this year, but remember guys were already there . so who gonna join us?
07-27-2006, 09:50 PM
Miami does look good but not enough to overthrow the Patriots. Miami has a tougher schedule this year and teams will be ready for them. I can see them going 9-7 again but they are not a SB contender yet. Close but still a few more things have to fall into place. I would say the top 3 teams in the AFC are New England, Pittsburgh, and Indy. Miami falls into the group of San Diego, KC, Denver, and Cincinnati.

49ers fan here in case you didn't know LOL. Not expecting much from them. I'd be happy with a 6-10 year and third place finish in the division. I think the Pats will win it all this year.

ATL BABY!!! as the lone falcon supporter on this site and the recipient of the entire anabolicminds hatred for michael vick i stand up with pride and avoid the tomatoes!! revamped defense and vick resorting to being vick instead of proving he's a pocket passer will give em 11 wins in a nasty division.

The Pittsburgh Steelers Just as It has been for the last 33 years. Just hope I don't have wait another 26 years to win the Super Bowl again.

Another Chargers fan and I think we can be a playoff team this year. Rivers is unproven but having the best player in the nfl in the backfield behind him(LT) should help.Our biggest problem is pass defense hopefully Cromartie will help, I thought he was a bit of a reach but worth a shot I guess.I am more of a college football guy but I have been a Chargers fan for 25 years and would like to see a superbowl win in my lifetime.Originally Posted by lilkev42

i may have to agree with you only for the simple fact that NE plays some easy teams on its schedual our is far more difficult. i think NE and MIA are pretty evenly matched now but were really gonna have to kick up our game to make things happen, i would love to play NE in the playoffs, ive always considered NE to be my favorite rival.Originally Posted by ICEBERG

Tony Romo looking solid as a starter!!!! In the first preseason game.....hah, but he actually did look pretty good, maybe he will be a solid backup for Bledsoe.Originally Posted by BLANE

I've always been a Steelers and Dolphins fan seeing as I'm old enough to remember THE IRON CURTAIN AND BRUISE BROTHERS!! I haven't watched an NFL game in 2 years, I'm hopelessly hooked on rugby, GO SALE SHARKS!!

Nobody has as solid a combo of talent AND depth as the Steelers. This yr. they make history again....as the only team to ever go back to back Three times and also the first to get 6 titles. Big Ben is unstoppable!

The Bengals look awesome but mark my words The Steelers will find a way to thwart their evil schemes. Having been a fan from the "Steel curtain" through some years when it was a "shower curtain" back to the Steel alloy of today, I know there is a lot of pride in that locker room.

Let's see....... I figure that the Steelers will lose 4-5 games so maybe on Sept 7 that may be one of them HOWEVER, the Steelers will be playing in late January which is "Golf time" in MiamiOriginally Posted by BMW

Watch a real team tonight. THE BUCS vrs Jags. The cats out of tha bag.......OFFENSE. Watch Simms, Caddilac, Clayton, Alstott, Galloway, Smith, Boston, Pittman and (improved O-line) tear up the Jaguars starting defense! Its on this year!

i never really had a favorite NFL team so Im rooting for Carolina and Cinncinnati this year. A team with a cat mascot will win it this year.
