That "assuredness" is what makes me think that it won't happen. Too good to be true.

If I told you my reasoning (if you call it that) for why I'm backing the North, you'd laugh at me to no end.

As for a more 'logical' reason, both the Bengals and Ravens have legit Ds. That seems like proper compensation for their excuse-ridden Os.

The biggest flaw of the North teams is that they're better at home and will [most likely] not have HFA past the first round. Whichever wins the division should TCB in the WC game.

That's faint!

Could totally see it happening. All it takes is one 'nobody believes in us!' day from a defense (BAL/CIN/KC) and a few errant Manning passes and the upset is on.
