This is how it will go.
This is preDraft so bare with me.
1.New England Patriots 13-3
No body has done more in the offseason to improve their team than them.
2. New York Jets 10-6
. Mangini will have these guys pushing for a playoff run.
3. Miami Dolphins 7-9
. Look for them to maybe push to 9-7, 10-6 if they get a health Ricky Williams, to go with Ronnie Brown.
4. Buffalo Bills 2-14
. Maybe the worst team in football moves from Houston to Buffalo this year.
1. Baltimore Ravens 12-4
Might be McNairs last chance at SBowl.
2. Cincinnatti Bengals 10-6
Could be 10-6 or 6-10, depending on team chemistry, and arrest.
3. Pittsburgh Steelers 8-8
Roethlisberger needs more weapons.
4. Cleveland Browns 6-10
They could swith with Cinn and go 10-6 depending upon their draft of Adrian Peterson. The O-Line will be solid. They
could be the suprise team of the year. But too many holes on an improving defense.
1.Indianapolis Colts 11-5
Not going back to the Super Bowl this year. Let far too many people escape from last years team to really
2. Jacksonville Jaguars 11-5
Title could go either way with them and the Colts.
3. Tennessee Titans 9-7
One more year before Vince Young leds them deep. Need more time for the pup's to grow up around him. Loss of Pac-Man
will really be felt on Special Teams.
4. Houston Texans 6-10
Slight Improvement on last year. Conference is gettting tougher and tougher every year. They could beat up on each
other this year.
1. San Diego Chargers 13-3
Super Bowl run, or one and done. Who knows.
2. Kansas City Chiefs 10-6
Another Close but no cigar.
3. Denver Broncos 9-7
Defense needs to add more youth.
4. Oakland Raiders 4-12
Breaking in a rookie QB, especially a raw talent like JaMarcus Russell 6-6, 255 is never pleasant to watch.
1. Dallas Cowboys 12-4
. Will vie with Eagles for title. A lot depends on Romo getting his Mojo back. Defense could be off the hook with the
man behind the Chargers defense running the ship.
2. New York Giants 9-7
Will Manning part 2 ever mature?
3. Philadelphia Eagles 8-8
Lost Garcia safety net, along with any threats at WR. Offense will consist of McNabb scrambling, enough hits and
he's done for the third year in a row.
4. Washington Redskins 6-10
While Jason Campble is not a rookie, he is still too raw to make a consistant impact. But look for the team to
show improvement late in season.
1. Chicago Bears 13-3
. Grossman will have ups and downs. Could be a lot better if they draft a Jarrett, or Meachem in the 1st round. Defense
will still rule the roost.
2. Green Bay Packers 9-7
Farves final season.
3. Detroit Lions 6-10
4. Minnesota Vikings 3-13
See breaking in a new QB. Management taking too many que's from Detroit.
1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 10-6
Will need a healthy QB to finish the season.
2. New Orleans Saints 9-7
Can you pull a rabbit out of you hat two years in a row?
3. Carolina Panthers 8-8
Fox's last year. May see Delhomme give way to David Carr somepoint in the season if things go bad.
4. Atlanta Falcons 6-10
Will take some time for Vick to process third offensive style in 4 years.
1. Seattle Seahawks 11-5
. Key players are getting older and team in not infushing them with new talent.
2. St.Louis Rams 9-7
Could flip flop with Seattle depending upon their two meetings, and health of Seahawks.
3. San Francisco 7-9
Stil a few key players away from challenging. Gore will go off again, but younger players need some seasoning.
4. Arizonia Cardinals 5-11
Leinart could have David Carr like year with the worst offensive line in the NFL. Way too much skill talent for the
Cardinals not to go after a few key lineman here and there.
