    The Lions, Rams, Redskins and Browns all have a shot at the top. The Raiders should be much better with an friendly schedule and no JRuss.
    I don't think the Raiders getting Campbell puts them over the Skins getting Mcnabb. I think people will soon realize that Campbell was the one keeping us from being a 7 or 8 win team at least. Russell does suck but his delivery as way quicker than Campbell's. I just feel like Jason is going to get murdered. Slow delivery and inability to make reads is not good when you don't have a great O-line and superior weapons.

      I think Buffalo picks first next year with St. Louis, Cleveland, Denver, and eh, I dunno who else in the top 5.

          I'm not buying the Skins at all. I think they are gunna surprise some people this year. I dont think 8 wins is completely out of reach for them, even in their division.

          The Browns will be bad, yes, and if they keep Jake Delhomme as the starter all year, its gunna get worse. That run game they have isnt gunna do a whole lot against Baltimore and Pittsburgh, and I dont think that Jake Delhomme is going to be torching those defenses either.

          That said, it has to be the Bills. They have very little talent on that roster, and didnt really do a whole lot to upgrade it.

            I'd guess Buffalo. They added talent, to be sure, but failed to procure any real short term help at the most vital positions. Honestly though, it's probably the right time for the team to bottom out. Between Locker and Mallett (I doubt Luck leaves school early) they are potentially facing a pretty decent QB class next year and they would likely see a lot of turnover in the front office and coaching staff.

              The Chiefs or the Bills. They didn't do nearly enough in the offseason to improve their terrible teams.

              The Lions will surprise people and could win more than 8 games this year. The Rams will not be good, but they will be better with Bradford. The Redskins will win at least 6 games with McNabb. The Raiders will win at least 6 games with Campbell and their excellent draft.

              That leaves the Chiefs and the Bills. Getting a potential All-Pro safety in the draft, and a potential All-Pro running back, respectively, is not nearly enough to improve these two terrible teams.

                I'm actually surprised that there are so many people picking the Browns. I don't expect to be good next season but I think 6 wins is doable. We play the Bucs, Chiefs, Jags, and Bills next season, all of which are winnable games. If Big Ben doesn't get his suspension reduced, we catch the Steelers minus him, which gives us a shot. The defense will be much improved with another year under Rex Ryan and numerous upgrades to the secondary. There is no way you can say Delhomme is a downgrade from our QB situation from last year, so say that he's terrible, but we have still improved at the position by bringing him in. Watson is a legit threat in the passing game, and Massaquoi will continue to improve. The RB position has improved, and we've seen rookie running backs burst onto the scene every season, so I think Hardesty/Harrison/Hillis, aka Triple H (yeah, I just thought of that!), will work well.

                I know the homer/optimist is getting the better of me a little here, but I don't think we are in contention for the #1 pick, I think we are headed in the right direction, and at worst end up picking in a similar spot (#7) again next year.

                  hmmm...browns on paper look better than TB, DET, STL, KC, and a few other teams. Not sure why they're such a popular choice considering how well they finished the season, winning their final four games behind a dominating running game and tough defensive efforts by a bunch of no-names....they ran for like 250 on Pittsburgh with just Josh Cribbs and Chris Jennings.

                  I would say Tampa Bay, Detroit, St.Louis. The usual suspects as they say. Buffalo I want to say but they always manage to win enough games to be in that 8-12 range despite not having good talent on the OLine, QB, or at WR.

                  I like to look at how teams played at the end of the year. Jets, Titans, Texans, and Browns all kicked butt at the end of the year. I think they'll all have hot starts.

                    I think the thing that no one really wants to realize around this time of year is that some teams get markedly worse, not incrementally better.

                    I think Denver could wind up sitting in the top 5 next year. If Chris Johnson doesn't go out and completely carry that Titans team again, I could see them tumbling down. Same deal with Jacksonville and MJD.

                      When did Rex Ryan leave the Jets to coach the Browns defense?

                      The problem with the Browns is that a.) They still don't have a quarterback and b.) Their defense is still mediocre, even with Joe Haden and Sheldon Brown, neither of whom is anything more than merely a solid corner.

                      Delhomme is absolutely terrible. I'd rather have Brady Quinn than Delhomme, if I were a coach. I'm definitely not sold on Colt McCoy, and he will contribute nothing in 2010. Seneca Wallace is a career backup, and he's basically your best chance - that's not good.

                        To be fair, I'm sure Rex and Rob Ryan chat about defense all the time. While downing pitchers and entire roast pigs.

                            Never going to happen. I would've though most people around here would've learned after all the doom-and-gloom predictions for Denver last year.

                            Regardless of what you think of McDaniels, the team will be competitive.

                              If MJD goes down our season is essentially over.

                                The Browns, Bills and Broncos.

                                The Browns are still really sketchy, they might be better because of their game plan but I don't really see a big improvement coming, they've got a good set of corners now with Sheldon, Wright and Haden but all I see in their front seven is mediocrity aside from Jackson and Rogers and Rogers isn't a good NT, great talent, fantastic 4-3 DT but he just doesn't play like a 3-4 NT, he tries to penetrate too much. Also on offense, their talent at receiver and QB is still REALLY thin IMO so I think they're going to be relying on the Hardesty and Harrison a lot of this season.

                                The Broncos are just terribly managed and there is no way they're going to get better now that they lost their best offensive player. Thomas is really good and will be a star in this league one day in my opinion but he is just so raw and I can't see him contributing a whole lot this season. Also Tim Tebow? I really can't see him starting or making an impact so it looks like a season with Quinn or Neckbeard at QB. Also I don't think the Broncos really improved their defense, they have some aging players like Dawkins and Champ who are bound to lose a step and I heard they're going to play more 4-3 fronts which means that they're limiting their best defensive player in Dumerville. I see a rough season for Denver.

                                Also the Bills are just terribly managed and they don't have the right mix of talent IMO, good secondary, good running attack but they don't have the QB to get the ball to Lee Evans, their offensive line is terrible and their front 7 is going through a transition. Rough year.
