i think this season the AFCNorth reasserts itself as a tough division. looking at last season gives a pretty skewed picture of the division.
obviously you can't forget Pittsburgh and Baltimore having the #1 and #2 defenses in the league, that alone makes the division average at the least. not only that, but i'd argue that Pitt's defense looks even better this year (hate the Steelers but Timmons is going to beast).
not a lot of people know that Cincinatti's defense was ranked #12 last season and they've added a **** ton of talent at nearly every position on defense. the crappy offense of last season should at the very least be 2x better with Carson Palmer coming back from his injury. Chad Johnson (homer?) is primed for a good season, Chris Henry WILL beast, and Bernard Scott I have high hopes for. (damn, tried not to sound like a homer)
And then there's Cleveland. Pass.
Cleveland went full ****** when they hired mangini.
