chargers might, new coach, who isnt the best, and will have the pressure of living up to expectations. Eagles also, Mcnabb will probably get injured and they have no proven backup.

This is easily the Chiefs. They've basically admitted that they're rebuilding.

Indy'll do worse too. i can see them being a 10 winner...

i mean, with the sheer number of close games they've had during the regular season, it's very possible that they'll get the shaft.

How about the Saints? Tougher schedule, won't take anyone by surprise, didn't really upgrade their defense at all...I think they're in for a much tougher season personally.

The Bills are in a huge rebuilding phase after letting most of their veteran talent go, especially on defense

I think that this is a building year for the Bills, last year was just seeing who fit and who didn't, the Bills will do worse, my guess is 5-11 or 6-10 because of our losses and ridiculous schedule.

Well we did acquire a starting LB, and CB, and brought in a Safety that will see a lot of time on the field in nickel/dime packages.

although the NFC South will be a lot tougher this season, on paper every team has made improvements through FA and the Draft.

I never understood the phrase "taking teams by surprise". After a certain point in last season, teams knew what to prepare for when facing us for the most part. We didn't sneak up behind teams and say "BOO" to beat them. Some teams adjusted and beat us (like the Redskins & Bears in the latter parts of the season) and some didn't. Period. To me that phrase makes no sense.

Anyhow, to say we didn't upgrade the defense... our biggest gap last year defensively was our secondary most notably Fred Thomas. We now have Jason David as the opposite corner to Mike McKenzie. Also, re-signed all our important defensive starters and added Brian Simmons & Kevin Kaesviharn for depth (or possibly starter considering how Bullocks does in camp). Also, with Roman Harper coming back (hopefully healthy) that would be another added bonus. Even with our lackluster defense (although we were 11th in the NFL) last season, we still met it to the NFLCG and were one win away from the Super Bowl. We didn't make a lot of turnover, but we took care of all the positions we needed to except for probably defensive tackle.

Now, I'm not saying if we'll be as successful as last year or not, but I wanted to clear up those misnomers about our team.

I think the Kansas City Chiefs will decline quite a bit and be the 3rd best team in the AFC West.

If the Raiders can somehow get some blocking from their offensive line and produce some actual offense, it wouldn't surprise me to see them be the 4th team in the AFC West.

I was about to put 4th but the Chiefs just have a little more collective talent to get them over the edge against the Raiders, but it wouldn't suprise me at all of the Chiefs do finish last in the West

I gaurantee the JETS will have a be on the fence for a losing season this year

1. Pennington WILL NOT stay healthy.

2. Instead of playing Oakland, Detroit, Houston, and Tenn (without Young),.. they now have Philly, Baltimore, Cincy and Tenn (with Young)

3. They will have a hard time splitting with NE this year, and if it wasnt for a turn-over Buffalo would of took two against them convincingly.

I like what Mangini is doing but there is no way the Jets do better than 10-6. I can see 9-7 at most.

Well backups: Kolb, Feeley, Holcomb
Proven Backups: Feeley (Led Eagles to superbowl when McNabb was injured before) and Holcomb is like a 11 year vet

If I could give out anymore rep I would.

I think in order to understand just how important the Jason David signing was to us, you have to realize how poorly Fred Thomas played last season.

I can't say off the top of my head but I believe he gave up around 12 TDs last season, most of them long yardage and numerous big plays. It got to the point where he was a TD just waiting to happen for the other team.

David isn't a superstar by any means but he's a young (24) CB that was a solid starter for the Colts, and that's all we need a solid CB that won't give up the huge plays down field every game.

the chargers will no doubt be worse...record wise..tougher schedule makes it impossible almost to go 14-2 again..now if they could trade some of those wins for some playoff wins..that'll be fine with me
