Default AFC North Predictions? (pre training camp)

take off the team colored glasses for this, curious what the thoughts are for this season in the AFC N.? Be as non-homered as possible for it. :).

Record wise I think it goes

12-4 5-1 Steelers (One loss to the Rats, only one, and it's sort of a fluke win)

Steelers are pretty much the class of the division and really have little competition this year, other than the Ravens who they are able to beat on a consistent basis as the Ravens always try (and unsuccessfully at that) to beat the Steelers at their own game. I don't see the Rape Case effecting Ben at all, though I could easily see him being out a week or two depending on how the o-line preforms. But even then the Steelers won't have much to worry about because they have a tremendous backup in Leftwich

10-6 4-2 Ravens (one loss to the Steelers and one loss to the Bungals)

The Rats defense is able to keep them within an earshot of the Steelers but not enough to win the division. Again, it's almost funny how much they are envious of the Steelers in the way they built their team. Flacco looks like a wannabe Big Ben and the D. is built in the same way. They clinch a wildcard and advance to the 2nd round of the playoffs.

7-9 3-3 Bengals (Losses to the Steelers X2, Ravens and Browns)

The Bengals seem to have built a decent looking defense, and hae a franchise QB in palmer who now at least has one decent o-linemen in Andre Smith. They lack a ground game, have a cancerous WR who wants to be traded and their manangement on up is extremely questionable. They look improved, but Mike Brown sort of holds them back as a winning franchise.

6-10 1-5 Browns (One win against the Bengals)

The Browns at least seemed to have found a coach, and have some things to build on, but are still light years away from contending with the Steelers for the division title at this point. Too many question marks at pass rusher, CB/S/FS, running back, right side of the o-line. They also have to find out whether Quinn is their franchise QB or not this season. Overall another rebuilding season for the Dawgs. Though a surprise is always possible as this team did it two season ago and the NFL is infamous for parity.

wow..

Didn't realize the Bucs had signed him. IMO, you guys should have signed him, he did pretty good as a backup and is a great insurance policy.

He was wanting to go play for someone where he has a chance to start so he went to tampa.
