Steelers
Bengals
Browns
Ravens

I see the Browns dropping off big time. Yes they had a decent year last year but I think they shot their wad. Derek Anderson showed his true colors when he needed to win big games. There will be a QB controversy when the Browns start to fold and Quinn will step in and falter as well. Ravens have an old D and have QB issues, I think that leaves Cincy behind us. I know Cincy has disgruntled felons but I have a hunch they will be improved.
I know most non Steeler fans would call us homers for all thinking Steelers will win division, but we have improved immensely in my opinion. My only concern is our D-line and secondary. Can Troy get back to his old self I am doubtful considering he is presently injured. I think Timmons and Woodley will both be solid. Our D was pretty bad when Aaron Smith went down. We need some youngsters to step it up on D-line and secondary or we will be in a lot of shootouts. I think we will be a very high scoring team next year.

I've got to agree. Balt. and Cinny look to be in some real trouble, and the Browns may be a bit better than last year.

Steelers 10-6
Ravens 8-8
Browns 7-9
Bengals 5-11
I think that the Steelers off. line is going to be bettter with the addition of Hartwig at center. If he had been here last year, this could have been a very deep run into the play-offs. But we will just have to wait n see wont we?..

I'd like to finish 1st in the division this year....but with our schedule, it doesn't look goo at this point. It is too early, but that's my two cents.

Now for the Browns

Draft Notables:
OLB Beau Bell This guy sounds like a bull. He makes tackles all over the place and only injuries held this guy back in college, if he can stay healthy he will be a nice player for the Browns and he has great size as well as decent speed for a LB
TE Martin Rucker This guy is a reciever in a TE's body. He fits the Browns usual TE prospects in that he just doesnt block.
WR Paul Hubbard Has great size but not much production in the college game.
OLB/DE Alex Hall Could suprise and be with this team for a while.

With the Browns signings of QB Anderson and RB Jamal Lewis the Browns kept the core of their much improved offense, and now the defense must step up and make some noise as well. Thats why they traded for DT Shaun Rogers and Cory Williams to help out on the Dline. They also signed the much underused WR Donte Stallworth from the Patriots to help out Braylon Edwards and K2. This could be a Hit or Miss season for the Browns who have the offensive talent to be really good, but their defense must prove that they can stop someone..

1. Browns
2. Steelers
3. Ravens
4. Bengals

I personally think the AFC north is the toughest division in football and we should make the playoffs as the 6 or 5 seed..
you are joking right? the bengals are the last team we need to worry about. they will self destruct. ocho cinco will not play this season b/c he didnt get his trade. i think he is hard-headed enough to do that. and palmer is a good qb, but he cant do it by himself.

the only team in the AFC north i would be worried about is the browns.

I've been concerned with a lot of the discounting of Baltimore I have been seeing of late... I think they may finish better than Cleveland.

i think the one thing that is going to hurt baltimore is not having a qb. boller wont be there for long and smith and flacco will be the future. but for now i dont think they are ready.

With the amount of parity in the NFL, I would be worried about every team in the division.
