Definitely KC. I mean. They didn’t really lose anybody and they just added a dynamic playmaker to their backfield. Plus Gay will prolly start day 1 too. 
 

Baltimore will also be there. Jackson will have more weapons with Dobbins and Duvernay, both should be immediate impact. Players imo. 
 

We’re right there in the top 3 teams though. It’s those 2 and us in no order. I could see Pittsburgh bouncing back this year too btw. Big Ben is back and he’s gonna be throwing to Claypool and Juju. Then Buffalo is gonna be stacked. They come outta the East easily IMO.

Chiefs and Ravens are by far and away our biggest obstacles. I think we should be able to handle the Titans for the most part. 

We also still have to find a way to beat the Steelers witch we haven't done in over a decade.

Ravens got James Proche too don't forget about him.

It’s Kansas City and it’s not close.

I agree.  I also feel that the Colts are being built to play the kind of football that beats them.

Lamar Jackson needs to win a playoff game first.

True but as far as seeding goes  the racens are a threat for the 1st seed

Chose the Chiefs and also the Steelers (ugh). Why? Because for some reason we cannot beat them practically ever. 

 

By them you mean Steelers right because we got Chiefs even with Brissett and we got Steelers killer in Rivers so lets go for Superbowl Colts

Hopefully the Colts can find a way to win that game this upcoming season.  Pittsburgh is always circled as a must win game on my football calendar.  I loathe them because of their historical dominance over the Colts.

I voted Chiefs, Mahomes is the best QB in the league. I think we will win our division though and go 10-6 as Phil makes one last run to try and get the ring. As of now on paper I only see the Chiefs and Ravens better than us. Tennessee and the Bills are pretty even with us.

I didn’t know Rivers was a Steelers killer.  Hmmm.

It's probably going to be some team like JAX. Baltimore and KC are already going to be heavy favorites against the Colts. There always seems to be a loss against some bunch of hapless slappies like the Jags that the Colts should beat, but they have a letdown and find a way to lose. That one unexpected loss could mean the difference of making the playoff or going home.

On paper us and Tennessee both look like 10 win teams, those 2 matchups with them are critical. I see the Texans at 8-8 and Jax stinking up the joint.

We have a better QB this year, makes a huge difference. We also just drafted one of the top 10 college RB's ever and picked up an all-pro on defense in Buckner.

Chiefs and Ravens are tier 1 in the AFC. Titans are tier 2 due to basically going to the AFC Champ game. Tier 3 is Colts, Bills, Steelers. Colts and Titans are about even but Titans made it to the final 4

How lovely, how refreshing!! Not a single vote for the Pats. :monkeydance:

If they play Stidham at QB I have them pegged at 8-8, maybe 9-7. Belichick is the GOAT so they won't stink but they aren't a 10 win team either IMO.

Primarily because we had a bad QB, and a mediocre pass D. 

Rivers, Buckner, and Pittman will turn that to 11 or more wins even with a more difficult schedule this year. I like us to go 5-1 at worst in the AFCS barring major injuries.

I have Tier 1 = Chiefs, Ravens

Tier 2 = Colts, Titans, Bills, Steelers

Tier 3 = teams like the Raiders, Pats, and Texans

Very early predictions but I like doing them after the draft and Free agency:

1. Chiefs 12-4

2. Ravens 12-4 - lose tiebreaker to Chiefs for #1 seed

3. Colts 10-6

4. Bills 10-6 - lose tiebreaker to Colts for #3 seed

5. Titans 10-6 as a wildcard lose tiebreaker to Colts

6. Steelers 10-6 as a wildcard

7. Raiders 9-7 as a wildcard

-Pats will miss the playoffs at 8-8 is my bold prediction.

    • Not sure why a couple people are confused about this thread, it's a fair question that people were also considering last season (with JB and Kelly). I was in the camp last year that thought we should have started Kelly once we were out of playoff contention and I have the same stance this season, we have to see what we've got in Eason at some point and it would make sense if there is no chance of playoffs. I wouldn't be totally shocked if Reich didn't play him even if this was the case though.
    • I swear, for a team that's been mediocre (and that's being generous) over the past decade, normally sneaking into the playoffs because of freak accidents in the division (like Rodgers injuries), they seem to get a fair amount of primetime games every year. Are they still riding on that 85 Bears magic or something? Do they pull in good ratings because of their name? I don't get it. I watched the first couple of drives to see how the game would fare out, and when it went largely as predicted, I muted the TV and just kept it on in the background while I did other things. And 99% of Bears/Packers primetime games involve 45-10 Packers blowouts.   I have ragged on the Cowboys getting a ton of primetime games when they've only won two or three playoff games in the last 25 years, but they normally have a decent team and you are always pulling for them to lose. The Bears have neither of those characteristics.   Speaking of primetime, the Bills will be on a TV near you for the next month (Monday Night @ 49ers, Sunday Night vs. Steelers, Saturday Night @ Broncos, Monday Night @ Patriots, and it's always possible the Week 17 game vs. the Dolphins could be flexed into a national audience if the division/playoff spot comes down to that game).
    • I think rivers has been okay for us but as expected nothing special. It's a tough decision to make for next season, and next season we face the whole NFC West and AFC East with Lawrence likely going to Jets and Fields likely going to Jags making the 'easy matchups' look a bit tougher. Either we go all or nothing with Eason or keep Rivers and probably be mediocre with a punchers chance of victory every time we play.
    • That truly was a terrible angle Willis took. Could've been held to just a bad 20 yard play on that one.
