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.

    • WR is a wait and see at this point. You can tell both Pittman and Parris have great potential its a matter of both staying healthy though .
    • I don't understand this reasoning behind the WR position.  They made two very high draft choices the last 2 seasons at WR.  Campbell certainly has elite "talent", whether or not he will be a good pro is impossible to discern by his performance since he has been able to play so little.  I was skeptical of Pittman because of the speed numbers, but he was  a highly regarded prospect.     I whole heartedly agree with what you say about being at the crossroads for the WR position.  I guess I just hope someone sells their soul so we can get a QB who plays like Charlie Daniels played the fiddle and Robert Johnson played the guitar. 
    • Here's the thing for me.  The Colts really have not been able to do what they planned to do because of personnel issues, so it is hard to see how good they might be if they switch up gears.   I think they toyed with the idea of going to a more power type of running style because they had the fullback on the squad but decided to stick with the Mack outside/inside zone stuff that was effective while he was in there the last two years.  I think they wanted to run this stretch action and couple it with alot of deep crossers to Campbell and this is a great combo.  The stretch play opens up the play action when it holds the backers and Campbell could run right behind them in front of the safeties.  To do this effectively, that long handoff is the key.  You also can screen that when you get a big upfield rush from the line. I don't think Taylor has shown he can be very effective at this type of play yet.  Apparently, we don't have anyone who the staff thinks can run that crosser effectively.     Now with Mack out, Campbell out, musical chairs at TE, TY's drop issues earlier, etc., I think it's hard to run the type of offense that they planned on and JT is not a versatile type of back right now that can do "different" things.  He in all likelihood needs to have a more quick hitting power running philosophy.     I think the early easier schedule makes it difficult to tell how well we've adjusted.  Even the Lions are a little better.  The next 5 weeks are probably as brutal a stretch as there will be in football.   I say all this to say that I think Rivers has done pretty well despite the circumstances.  He is the guy I wanted the Colts to sign in the first place.  But if we are going to run into the problems I think we will run into this next month or so, having a guy who could make plays after the play breaks down might be essential.     I've been saying we will know where we stand after the next 5 weeks, but I think Lions and Ravens will tell us a lot.  
    • The top QBs will be gone by the time Colts pick so Colts have several options:   . Select best available OT or DE and re-sign Rivers.    . Select best available OT or DE and start Eason and draft his backup late.   I hadn't done tons of research. Is there going to be a QB in 20s range to draft? One that would certainly start over Eason. Because if not you might as well start Eason.
