They both should be. 

Cardinals have QB trouble. 

Broncos are on the down. 

 

I'd have Packers at one and Seattle at two.

I don't agree with that. You're acting like it isn't close when it is. I'd say the Colts and Cowboys are in the same tier.

Not really. If the Cowboys were in the AFC they probably would have won the Super Bowl.

I wanted to put the Lions in this, but Cincy has shown their going to be right there every year. But still I could have gone Lions and Chiefs at 9 and 10 easily.

Possibly but I would have to disagree.

Good team but not a very good playoff team. Offensive line is great which automatically makes a decent offense look like the best in the league. (Colts don't seem to get that).

Defense is a but shaky at times. They had a bug pickup last year with Rolando McClain and he played a big part due to injuries but without him and Barry Church who made most of the tackles in the secondary they were below average. Kinda like the Colts defense.

Our offense is better in my opinion. To bad our offensive line/ front office can't ever seem to get it right on offense.

Colts over Cowboys because of offense.

Cowboys will be getting Sean Lee back this year who is still only 28, Rolando Mcclain is still only 25. The key for them is can players stay healthy...namely Darren McFadden , IF Mcfadden stays healthy they didn't lose anything when they lost Murray....I don't see McFadden staying healthy though

The Cowboy defense sucks compared to the Colt defense. My rankings: 1) Colts-we are just going  to play much better this year. 2) Seattle-as long as they only run from the 1 yard line. 3) Green Bay-there qb can win on jeopardy. 4) Arizona-lots of talent. 5) Detroit-Coach Caldwell has them roaring. 6) Ravens-Harbaugh hoping all opponents play by the rules this season. 7)Bengals-injuries were the reason Colts beat them last season(according to brainless talking heads on tv) so if they are healthy they must be pretty good. 8)Broncos-see explanation at 7. 9)Eagles-best team in nfc east. 10)Texans-close last year. Oh look, I didn't rank the team that has a huge aversion to playing by the rules, we just don't know if they could even win a game if they played by the rules. Too bad cheaters, you've brought it on yourselves.

People always put the Packers and Patriots atop these rankings but in other discussions talk about how the team is so bad besides the quarterback. Anyway here are mine which are subject to change, based on what I know which is very little just like everybody else whether we admit it or not.

1. Patriots - I wouldn't usually call a repeat SB appearance 2 years in a row but apparently nothing can stop the Patriots, not even the rules.

2. Seahawks - they were complacent all last year and still made the SB. Unless they've mailed it in on the coach after what's known as The Call, there apparently isn't anything stopping them either.

3. Falcons - I personally think that that team is good and could be great if coached properly. That's supposed to have been the adjustment they made this offseason. Add that to an easy schedule and you won't be able to argue with the results no matter how frustrating it is.

4. Giants - I won't predict another 9-7 SB run but Tom and Eli aren't laying down after taking a few to the stomach, and we all know that competition in that division always finds a way to not follow up on 1 good year (Cowboys this year).

5. Colts - love Luck, and Hilton is an underrated WR. They aren't as far from a SB as people outside of their fanbase think imo.

6. Broncos - this team is solid in all phases of the game. If the coach and quarterback are back at 100%, count on success. You know you have a chance when Peyton Manning is perhaps your biggest question mark.

7. Chargers - they won't just give it to the Broncos. We'll see...

8. Cardinals - they had so many injuries last year that it makes me wonder if it's even possible go plug that many people back in and get results. If it is, they will be even better.

9. Lions - this team has the best chance of any NFCN team in recent memory not to be the token 2nd place 1 hit wonder team in the division imo.

10. Ravens - Ben can't carry the Steelers to half their victoies anymore even though he's still a good quarterback. That leaves the Ravens who are a good team all around even if they aren't the best.

^ You seem to have forgotten the packers, which is strange considering your avatar 

 

Also you have some highly questionable picks there... Falcons at #3? Giants at 4? Cowboys not even listed? I like that you tried to explain your picks, but I very much disagree with your rankings. But hey, that's what this thread is about, right? 

 

And I think some people in this thread aren't considering that some of these teams (including us) have made significant changes over the off-season.

The Packers will have a winning season but not be a top 10 team even if I'm wrong about Detroit. That's been the case more than once in their present era. People just fall for it every time they smack around their lame division.

The NFC East winner never stays on top. The Cowboys look good but when's the last time somebody won that division twice in a row?

As long as Aaron Rodgers is healthy, the Packers will be a top-10 team at worst.

    • Like Dallas or NE ?   I like the idea of trading Jacoby. Both Dallas and NE may be in need and there may be others, that could be interested.   NE makes more sense for Jacoby than Dallas, as he would have the opportunity to start next year, if he can turns things around.     What you want to trade Jacoby? Would you do it for a 3 and taking his contact off the Colts roster $$ ?     What do you think he’s worth, with competition on the market?       If they did trade him to another club, would you then: a. Make Eason backup and  add Kelly to the practice squad ? b. Add Kelly to the 53, let him and Eason compete for the backup spot? c. Sign a veteran to a one-year deal and make him the backup?    IMO I’d choose “b” unless the Colts really feel strong about keeping Brissett. I like the idea of giving Kelly a shot to at least, compete. If they did trade Brissett, and they want to take a chance to see what they have in Eason,  they should at least bring Kelly back to the practice squad, for insurance.       The Colts may be getting phone calls some time this year about Brissett and if QBs keep going down, Brissett’s value might go up.     To me, it just makes sense that would listen to offers:    You’d be getting draft capital back, a possible reduction in your contract money owed and the opportunity for Eason to get experience or for he and Kelly to compete.   Jacoby would get his opportunity.      
    • Brutal nine game stretch? Vs the 1-6 Texans (x2), the 1-6 Jaguars, vs the 3-3 Raiders, vs the 3-3 Lions? Vs the paper tiger Titans (x2).   The Packers and Steelers could be tough, but not unwinable.   I think our definition of ‘brutal’ could be very different...   It’s a shame we don’t having a purring offence though.
    • Brady appears everywhere, even when he's not wanted. 
    • You can only have confidence in the draft picks that perform. And Ballard has drafted a lot better than Grigson, so I can't complain in this area. His hit rate on production is pretty good. All teams use short term deals. It's part of the business when you  have to fill holes. You ought to give it a shot. Much less politics than expected, and a lot less than other sports.   I think part of the problem though is our lack of blitzing. We're still one of the least blitzing teams, and most of the other sack heavy teams have a significant increase in blitz % compared to us.    Hoping Turay comes back 100%. If not, we need to make a move in the off season for sure. Still think we resign Houston too. I agree we don't have much identity on either side. We really have had balance from game to game either. Our identity to me thus far is conservativeness.
