I think Atlanta has a shot, but I really don't know.

Raiders IMO, they had a decent draft, the line SHOULD be better, they aren't going to make huge strides, but they are heading the right way.

zona finally SHOULD start getting around better.
whether or not it's because the cards will perpetually get stuck in mediocrity

detroit might actually gain four wins this year over last year. i mean, it's not horrible, just very young, minus the kitna-nator. SF will make 8-8 this year for sure, if not be a serious contender for a play off spot.

San Francisco seem to be the trendy choice. The can certainly win their division. Nolan has transformed that team from near talentless, to good on paper in just 3 years. I really like their depth and think as a young team they'll really progress this year.

I also think Atlanta and Cleveland will be a fair bit better, although that might not reflect in their record. They are both in very tough divisions IMO. I think Petrino will do excellent for Atlanta, especially offensively.

I think Houston might be quite improved, although that is just a hunch. I could see their defense being dominant this year, against the run for sure. Their offense is lacking in talent though, minus Johnson.

I like Detroit as well, but my pick is going to be the Arizona Cardinals. The Niners are the talk of the town in that division, and much deserved, but I really think Leinart and the addition of Grimm, Whiz and Brown; I really think this is the team that can challenge Seattle.

Also, there DL could be something to watch providing Berry comes back healthy (for once) and the combo of Watson / Branch could be devastating.

The Browns are the Arizona of this year. They will get all this pre-season hype, and then suck, just like Arizona last year.

Raiders. Offence will improve alot and the defence will still be top 5-10. i think 7-9 or 8-8 is a big possibility

If you're just talking about in terms of wins and losses (since that's all that counts) then I'll say Raiders or Lions. The Raiders could win 7 games, or the Lions could win 8 games next year and make a 5 game improvement. If you're looking at a team like the Niners, they would have to go 12-4 or the Panthers would have to go 13-3 to do the same.

Basically what I'm saying is that the team that makes the biggest improvement will be a team that won 6 games or less last year. The less games you've won, the easier it is to improve your record.

The Bucs will have another inflated Win amount and possibly make playoffs, because of a WCO veteran QB.

I really don't think Garcia will be able to inflate the Buccaneer's win/loss ratio on his own. If the Buccaneers have more wins this season it will be due to a combination of increased offensive line play, more yards from Caddy, stopping the run on defense and making plays in the backfield.

Bucs should be better... Raiders can't be worse, so they'll improve... I think Detroit (homer!!!) will be better, not great, maybe not even very good, but better. Maybe if Arizona gets it's act together on O-Line they'll improve.

Vikes should be better, Carolina should definately get back to the playoffs.

I agree with the 49er pick. I've been high on them ever since they hired Nolan. It's only a matter of time before they make a deep run into the playoffs. Every move they've made recently I've found myself nodding my head and thinking to myself how much I love what they're doing. I see them and the Cardinals replacing the Seahawks and Rams as the two teams who will duke it out for the division title each year. Although nothing lasts for very long in this league anymore. But you guys get what I mean. There is a power shift occurring right now out west. imo.

I hope the Cardinals do well and I think they will do well because they haven't been to a Super Bowl before. I, as a Browns fan, feel their pain. They've definitely are on their way to the playoffs very soon. As will the 49ers.

Bills -

I know most have written them off because of getting rid of thier veterans. But Levy did that last year and with the release of Milloy, Moulds, Posey, Adams, and Vincent.. and everyone had them pegged for the first pick of this years draft and they ended up in the playoff hunt till the last game.

They have the SAME offensive system, with Losman who has been improving and finally with the same coaching staff as stability. They increased thier offensive line with the aquisistion of Dockery. And replaced the loss of McGahee with the tandum of Lynch, Atrain, and Dwayne Wright.

Spikes was never really a factor in last years games, and Ellison stepped in and played extremely well in his place when he was injured finishing with close to 70 tackles in only starting 6 games and playing in 14.

Crowell is a 100+ tackler when healthy and is VERY underrated having to play behind Spikes and Posey when he was young.

And Poslusney will come in and make an immediate impact at MLB.

The only weakness is with the loss of Clements, but with the Cover 2 you can hide your CBs with a strong Dline rush and excellent saftey help. Schobel and Kelsay continue to improve and excell in this system at the defensive end posistion. McCargo will come off of his year injury and help, and they aquired Darwin Walker from the Eagles who had 6 sacks last year at DT.

The Raiders and the 49ers. Both the teams had a good offseason, the 49ers dominated free agency. The Raiders dominated the draft. I think that the 49ers could have a chance to win their divison and make it into the playoffs. The Raiders I could easily see going 8-8 or 7-9. It just all depends how their line does.

Though it likely won't be the biggest improvement, I could easially see the Jaguars going 12-4.
