Well, we have 8 games against '07 playoff teams next season - just like the Browns do. I don't see the Bengals or Ravens cracking 6 wins, so I think we have a fair to middling shot - somebody from the AFCN has to go.

The only discrepancy between games I think is that you guys play the Pats and the Chargers and the Browns play the Bills and the Broncos. I feel like the Browns will beat both of those teams and I know that nobody goes into a season thinking that they are going to lose games but the Pats and Chargers are significantly better teams than the Broncos and the Bills. Only one team is going to go from this division and beating the Pats and Chargers while being consistent against the North and the NFC East is going to be extremely difficult...even if it is just because of those two games.

Two games? When is the last time the Browns beat the Steelers? It's a wash.

If everything goes accordingly, this year the Steelers I think go at worst 12-4.

I'd have to say a 5-1 record against the North last season wasn't anything to shake a paw at.

The Steelers have owned the Browns for how many years now? No doubt in my mind that the Browns have nightmares about the Steelers long before the two teams meet every season.

Personally, I think that playing all those good teams is a positive. It will keep us at the top of our game. There will be very few if any "gimme" games this year, so the guys will have to prepare well and be ready for all of them. I think they have a good chance to go 11-5, which would be good enough to win the division. I also think Anderson falls off a little in 08, and the Browns have some trouble with all their free agents 'fitting in'. They won't be overlooked by anyone, either!

Well, I'm getting a little tired of the conjecturing already. We're the defending AFCN champs until we get knocked off the hill. The pundits and so-called "experts" can hand the Browns the division title on paper now all they want, but if the Browns want the real prize, they're going to have to actually take it from us. We'll see how the season plays out.
