At least two of these teams will make the playoffs next year. Right now though, I'd have to say Oakland will repeat unless they drastically improve their inept offense.

Detroit, then Millen get's fired, and by 2009 the Lions are the power of the NFC.

The Bucs. They resigned Chris Simms which was a mistake and their defense is getting older and older.

Who ever wins the Super Bowl gets my vote. Damn parity!

Nah, I could really see Oakland getting it again. They are gonna have to hire one heck of a coach to improve this team enough in just one offseason.

The Raiders, just because.

raiders because they really need a lot of improvement on that team or the bucs because the D is just getting older

I hate to go aganist my team but i think Vikings. If you saw the schedule for the vikings next year. But were playing the NFC East and AFC West, Very Tough Divisons to play.

Maybe it could be buffalo.

Raiders, changing HC so rapidly iMO does nothing for the team.

Not the Lions, becasue whoever they draft, Quinn or Thomas would drastically improve the team

Hmm..i think minnesota or tampa bay. TB is aging on defense and no offense. They have no qb and simms is a backup, not a starter. Minnesota will go through some growing pains with jackson at QB, not to mention they have the worst receiving core in the NFL, low ranked pass D, and no DE outside of erasmus james (to my knowledge). A lot of holes to fill, and i see more inconsistent QB play next year because jackson doesnt have a whole lot to work with, and he is going to start only his third game next year.

oakland or tampa

I highly doubt Buffalo. If Willis isn't traded or holding out or some freak occurence then our offense will be good enough to keep us from the cellar, regardless of any hangover we could potentially suffer from losing Clements and Fletcher. At worst we'll have a first day pick (youboty or a new guy) at CB and still crowell and ellison and almost certainly some starting worthy addition or possibly even Spikes still at LB. Run defense could be a problem still but noone really knows how McCargo will fare or our potential new LB. Some interior line shakeups could be in store for all we know

does anyone know how many times a team has had the number one pick two years in a row?

3 times in the past 20 years, the most recent being Cleveland with Couch and Brown

You do realize that Kitna would still start at least 75% of the games next year if we took one of these guys.

It won't be the Lions though. They will win a couple meaningless games next year and end up picking out of the top 5 (probably still in the top ten though, lol).

I can't see the Raiders getting the first pick. Their defense will only improve by next year, and their offense has to get *a little* better...

I could see Tampa getting it, or cleveland.

Depends who the Raiders and Lions take. Which ever one doesn't take a QB will have a chance at it.

The Raiders would be better off with a brand new QB... experienced or not.

It's nice to know Green Bay has 6 total games against the teams listed.

In my objective view I would say the Lions. It all starts in the trenches, and they're weak there on both sides of the ball.

I won't pick yet, I'll wait until the 12:59 before the first game starts.

i think detroit....... oakland has some talent on their D, the lions are not going to improve with kitna at the helm

All that losing we've done has yet to produce a #1 overall pick since we took Andre Ware in 1990. The Lions are arguably the worst team of the past two decades and yet they can't even manage to end up with the #1 pick. Even the year we went 2-14, we were only picking third!

It won't be the Lions. Not because they are any good, but because they will continue to lose when it matters, and win when it doesn't.

I'd always thought revolutionaries weren't tedious anyways...they just rip off their bombs of enlightenment and start shooting off their rifles of change without care.

Detroit if they keep Kitna and don't draft Peterson or a QB.

If your telling me I can have Detriot, Arizona, Cleveland, Oakland, Tampa Bay, Minnesota, Houston, Washington, or Miami, against the field, I will happily take the field.

I think that the Packers < without Favre > have a good shot at the first pick.

The Steelers with a new head coach might have a shot

You just never know.

Im gonna go out on a limb and say the Vikings.

Their QB situation isnt good and I dont see it getting better. Brad Johnson is on his way out and it looks like theyre ready to put their faith in Tarvaris jackson, which could mean a lot of growing pains on that offense, especially considering they dont have much weapons around him, although they do have a good OL.

Their front 4 is good, but the rest of their D aint great and Im not seeing that unit becoming all that good either.

Also, I have 0 respect for Childress as a coach. I didnt like him when he got hired and my opinion is now reinforced. he doesnt treat his players, even vets like Brad Johnson, with respect. and I dont believe that he has his players inspired to go out and play at their highest level. This is a franchise that doesnt appear to be going anywhere fast and I bet Childress gets canned next year.

We will win at least 3-4 games with Rodgers. That could be few enough for #1 but I doubt it.
