    It's been said but I'll go with the Bengals too. Healthy Carson and a pretty great draft class should equal a lot more wins than last year. They're in a TOUGH division but I love the way their defense is shaping up and their offense is going to be explosive.

      Underrated teams;

      Indianapolis Colts-Yes losing Dungy, Mudd etc will hurt. But, they still have Manning throwing the ball, Wayne and Clark catching the ball, Freeney rushing the passer and Sanders knocking people's heads off. I wouldn't count them out just yet.

      San Francisco 49ers-Quietly Singletary is building a very good team in San Fran. If he can get even average play at QB and WR they can win the NFC West. Their defense could turn out to be very good as well.

      Denver Broncos-Is Kyle Orton Jay Cutler? No but he is a steady QB who has a history of leading winning teams. That was his team that Grossman took to the Superbowl. With Marshall, Royal, Sheffler, Moreno and that O-line their offense will be better than average, plus they play in the AFC West. They should be no worse than 7-9. People are talking about them being a #1 overall for next year's draft

        Homer pick, The Packers. They're getting buried in the Cutler/Favre/Stafford media frenzies but they added some pieces to their defense and the young stars on offense have another year under their belt, and Rodgers proved to the fans/the coaching staff/himself that he can be the guy in Green Bay. I like our chances this year.

          Wait, you meant head coach.
          Paul Hackett anyone?


          They're my second favorite team so I'm a little biased, but I like the Bengals this year. They've got a solid defense with an interesting mix of youth and experience, though I'd have to say more youth. If the offensive line plays well they'll have a lot of success this year since Palmer will have some decent weapons to throw to and they showed signs of being able to run the ball late last season. If not then they'll struggle. Tough division too, but I think they can definitely have some success if everything goes well.

          Looking at the ESPN power rankings I think (in no particular order) the Chiefs, Jags, Bucs, Bills, and Redskins could make some noise this year if a couple things go the right way.

              Btw I wouldn't let Colt Brennan park my vehicle.

              You see Geo... All it took was 1 preseason for Colt to win over their hearts. Redskins fans could easily hate on him, but he gives them hope.

              People can't knock him as a draft prospect anymore. Can't knock his size. He's bigger and stronger than ever. Can't knock the system he came from or his footwork from behind center. He's had a year of tutledge. Can't knock his performance in the time he's been given, because he's done well. If he had done bad, then you'd have a point. Can't knock his throwing motion, because there are all types of different throwing motions that have been successful in the NFL... it just all boils down to performance and what you do on the field now... and Colt has done well in that department.

                Being a bit of a homer but the Rams are really underrated, and have a good chance to surprise some folks. I like what the Bengals and Jags have done this offseason too.

                  We have Crabtree, plus the development of Jason Hill and Josh Morgan, draft picks from 07 and 08 respectively. Along with a decent backup in Brandon Jones and the vet leadership of Isaac Bruce, i think we'll be pretty good at WR this year. And hopefully the improvement at WR will make our QB's look better too.

And for all you guys picking the Texans...LOL that defense is as bad a unit as they come,if they were to lose Mario or DeMeco they wouldnt even be able to get the other offense to punt.
                    Glad to see someone else picking us. I think the Jags have the potential to go 9-7 if things go right.

                      I see the Jags as a team that is built well for the near future, but not one that will make a deep run next season. Those two tackles are going to be real nice to have in the coming years.

                        I think the Jags are a year off yet. They are young along the lines and experience is going to be key for those guys because they are very talented. The receivers are young too, outside of Holt, and this will be a year of development for them as well. Would it surprise me if the Jags pulled off a .500 or better season? No but they're not going to be as polished in the trenches and that will be their downfall.

                          Although I do think the Rams have improved I don't see them making much noise this season. They do have a lot of young talent that a couple years down the road could make them dangerous and the Rams are still very unsettled at the QB position IMO.

                            Bengals:

                            A healthy Palmer to Ocho and Leonard all day. Throw in Coles, and BAM!

                            and Keith Rivers is sweet as well

                                I'll be a homer and say the Saints have SB chances if they put it together, I also think that atleast one other NFC West team will be in the playoff race, I'd prolly lean towards the 9'ers right now. I think the Packers will win the North as well.

                                In the AFC I think the Jags will be a playoff race team again if the O-Line stays healthy. I also like the Jets, I think their D will be nasty and Sanchez fits well.
