The season is here!

AFCE

  1. New England Patriots: Yea this was a hard decision to make. The Patriots will sweep the division on their way to a super season. Even without Edelman, this may be the most potent offense we have seen in Foxboro in years. I expect Edelman to be replaced by the one that Tom has the most trust in, and usually its not a first year teammate. Sorry Cook fans, his target level will not rise much as a result of this. Amendola should be bagging at Walmart, but there is plenty of other talent. My choice is Dion Lewis. This team will score the way the 2007 version did, win almost as good as that team too!…..and comparisons will not end there!…………..14-2
  2. Miami Dolphins: The Dolphins lost loved son Ryan Tannehill, however replaced him with some scrap metal that was left behind in the pile after free agency frenzy ended. Gase is in his second year, and he will learn how difficult it has been for a second year coach to win in this division. I do not think the D has yet figured out how to stop the run, and teams will continue to exploit that. Offensively, unless Cutler can keep Landry happy, there will be a lot of turmoil. Jay Ajayi is yet to prove to anyone that he can play 16, let alone be productive for more than 4. The playoff Dolphins will regress…………..7-9
  3. Buffalo Bills: Bills are a mess! I was actually going to root hard for this team, because their fans, especially here, deserve a nice playoff season….However, the jokesters running the team appear to have no clue. First of all, firing the GM after the draft is dangerous; deciding to rebuilt and tank during pre-season is even crazier. Make no mistake, this team is tanking. Bills in my opinion are one player gone (McCoy) from being among the 2-3 worst teams in the NFL. The D is not as good as it used to be, scoring is going to be a problem…………..5-11 (and I’m being generous)
  4. New York Jets: This disaster has finally hit quick sand, and this season, it will reach the bottom. The patchwork was finally taken apart, and with no QB, crappy OL, and WRs still sucking on pacifiers, it should be an epic year. The D will be the best its been in a while, however, the inept offense will hurt it, and few will notice. Todd Bowles is coaching his last season. The D will win two games, and carry the team to the worst record in the NFL…………..2-14

AFCN

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers: The Steelers are the class of this division, period! This team will have a huge year (see further down)…………..12-4
  2. Cleveland Browns: YES! The Browns!!! I have not lost my mind, this is almost by default, because the Ravens and Bengals are moving downwards, and this young franchise is slowly moving forward. Head to head alone will give them the edge…………..8-8
  3. Cincinnati Bengals: Bengals had some real good teams last decade, but have zero to show for it. HC should be fired! This D is old and slow, offense has no direction, especially judging on how the draft went. They were awful last year, I will actually give them an extra win because Dalton may play more games.…………..7-9
  4. Baltimore Ravens: This team has been hit by injuries harder than any other. Ravens may not be a contender healthy, unhealthy they are just a pretender…………..6-10

AFCS

  1. Tennessee Titans: Titans have a “seasoned QB” and weapons at his disposal, rest of the division is not up to par…………..10-6
  2. Indianapolis Colts: Yea, the Colts not the Texans. I trust Luck once healthy, way more than all the crap Texans can use…………..8-8
  3. Houston Texans: Growing pains on offense take their toll…………..7-9
  4. Jacksonville Jaguars: D is better, O is horrendous. Drafting Fournette was dumb!…………..5-11

AFCW

  1. Kansas City Chiefs: Say what you want about Alex, his teams have always had good seasons, this one will be no different. This D is very opportunistic, and O can score!…………..12-4
  2. Las Vegas Raiders: Good team, but I just don’t buy Carr…………..9-7
  3. Los Angeles Chargers: Offense will score a lot, D is just ok…………..8-8
  4. Denver Broncos: Yea, not buying into this D can still carry a crappy O, Broncos will pay dearly for having done a Paxton to improve their O…………..7-9

NFCE

  1. Philadelphia Eagles: The stench left behind by Mr. Run-A-Play every 3 seconds is gone, Eagles have a real good D and an O that can keep them in games. This entire division takes a step backwards…………..10-6
  2. Dallas Cowboys: Zeke or no Zeke, Cowboys have taken three steps backwards on D, can they field a team?…………..9-7
  3. New York Giants: Giants may have one of the best Ds in football, however, as long as the O is “hot head” dependent it will suffer…………..8-8
  4. Washington Redskins: Cousins will get the biggest NFL contract before season ends, but Redskins just suck…………..6-10

NFCN

  1. Green Bay Packers: As long as there is a guy named Aaron, this team has to be in mentioned…………..11-5
  2. Detroit Lions: The D is solid, a healthy Abdullah will equal balance on offense…………..10-6
  3. Minnesota Vikings: Just don’t believe in this team overall, D is good, offense makes no sense. I love Cook, but why did they draft him?…………..7-9
  4. Chicago Bears: Bears sign an expensive QB than draft one early in round one, is there anything else to say?…………..3-13

NFCS

  1. Atlanta Falcons: Still field the best team in the division, runner-up champs will be back on top…………..11-5
  2. Carolina Panthers: A team less depended on Cam, and slimmed down KB, watch out for Christian!…………..9-7
  3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: I like how they are surrounding Winston with talent, but Ds will dare them to run…………..9-7
  4. New Orleans Saints: Its time to fire Sean, Breese will want half the CAP as salary, or leave. Keeping him means no room to get talent…………..7-9

NFCW

  1. Seattle Seahawks: This is a team that has a mess at RB, and with a crappy OL, but a division slanting downwards, their D will be the difference…………..12-4
  2. Arizona Cardinals: They win this many games thanks to sharing a division with Rams and 49ers, otherwise they are a shell of their recent past…………..9-7
  3. Los Angeles Rams: New city, new HC, same results, team sucks, no QB…………..4-12
  4. San Francisco 49ers: It will take time for new regime to improve a disaster…………..4-12
