Default AFC NORTH DIVISION PREDICTIONS

Coach Tomlin won't make make any ptedictions about the upcoming season but that doesn't mean we in steelernation can't. Thought we could all give a predicton for the North next season.

No way next season is as bad as last year so I'll say the black and gold reclaim the north championship with a 12-4 record.
In second place I like the ravens but only if McNair can stay healthy. I'll say 10-6 with him and without 7-9.
I feel that the browns are up and coming but still a few years awyay so lets say at best 8-8
Yes my friends finally the the bungles will implode this season and return to the cellar where they belong with a record of 6-10 or maybee worse.

recap: 1.steelers 12-4
2.ravens 10-6
3.browns 8-8
4.bengals 6-10

Lets gets as many predictions as we can and after the season we will see who was right and who was wrong!

I look for the bengals to lose at least 10 games. By the time the season starts, they'll already be guaranteed 7 losses by forfeit. They'll have to forfeit all 7 games outside the State of Ohio because they won't have enough players to suit up. Too many players will be under court order not to leave the state.

Good selections so far everyone.. Heres mine
1. Ravens : Their defense will win alot of games for them as usual, and if McGahee plays like I think he will behind that line then they are gonna be very tough if anyone at all steps up at WR and McNair stays healthy.
2. Steelers : If Ben can turn things around for the good as the 2 years before, then we will should have a nice offensive arsenol. Willie, I hope will lead the league in rushing yards and I am looking for big things from Santonio Holmes and Troy Polomalu as well.
3. Bengals : The Bengals have too much offense to fall any lower than this, and I think it will be a battle between the Steelers and Bengals here. The biggest ? other than the obvious, "can the bengals stay out of trouble?" will be their defense.
4. Browns : I think that the Browns should make good strides this upcoming season, will it be enough to save the job of Cremmel, I dont know. Their offense got a big boost when they landed the best QB in the draft in Quinn and the supposedly best OT in the draft as well. This team should be very improved and maybe in a few years they will be up higher than this ...

First Place: Pittsburgh Steelers (12-4)-- Big Ben bounces back and has the Comeback Player of the Year season.Ward eclipses 1,000 yards,as does Santonio Holmes while Heath Miller has a coming-out party with 70 catches for 10 TD's and about 800 yards (give or take).This year,our defense will pressure the QB more.That is part of the reason our secondary played like crap so much last year.Polamalu will be heal;thy the entire year,Anothony Smith will knock some heads off of people,and Ike will play like he did in 2005.

Second Place: Baltimore Ravens (10-6)-- McGahee won't be this 7,000 yard 5,000 TD machine everyone thinks he is going to become.He'll probally have Jamal Lewis circa 2006 numbers behind that line,which is a marked improvment over what he did in Buffalo.McNair will have a good season,getting back into his comfort level with Mason and finding Heap in the red zone a lot.Thier defense is gonna be one of the better defenses in the league again,but they won't be as dominant this year.

Third Place: Cinncinati Bengals (8-8)-- Thier offense will still be hella explosive and one of the most underrated backs in the division,Rudi Johnson,will have another very good season.However,thier defense still leaves a lot to be desired.Not to mention all the distaction from offseason arrests and Marvin Lewis' denial about his team chocked full of criminals.

Fourth Place: Cleveland Browns (4-12)-- They will once again go winless in the division.This is a team on the rise,just not this year.They are building a solid foundation that will bear fruit in 2008,when they should have Baxter back 100% healthy,and possibly have center Lecharles Bentley back.Frye will start the season,but I don't see much productivity from him.So I say about gave 5 or 6 Quinn will become the starting QB.He'll have a rough start,but by week 10 I think he will have caught up with the speed of the game and start showing that he would have been worth the #3 pick in the draft.

Some pretty big predictions there, Roethlisberger.

I'll bet you $5 that Miller has less than 60 receptions and $5 that the Ravens will finish above Pittsburgh.

Hows that sound?
