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.

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.

    • They have contributed as much their rookie year as the entire group maybe by end of the season, but I doubt there's even a tiny chance of 2 all pros. Even 1 is a major stretch.  I am not sure we have any all pro's on the team since the most deserving one is Buckner (who I count as our first round pick in every way) has impact but no stats to wow anyone not intimately aware of his impact. If he misses this game we may painfully see how valuable.  But their collective impact has certainly added up. 4 starters and 2 solid special teamers in a so far playoff level team is quite a haul for any draft pick class in history.  It is at least adjacent to 2018, unless you don't count Buckner in any way.
    • Nothing against you and I like you as a poster but counting Ballard's 2017 season is a stretch. I realize he was the GM that year (1st year) but he didn't have the Coach he wanted and Luck was out for the year. We went 4-12 that year so his record is a bit skewed because of that. Others have posted the same thing about Ballard's record so you are not the only one and I just don't see how anyone can count that season legitimately. I pretty much go by 2018-this year when he hired Frank and his record would be 25-19 counting the playoffs. Is he the best GM in the league, probably not but he is good. He is responsible for drafting Nelson, Leonard, Mack, signing Houston, signing Rivers and trading for Buckner = great work there. Luck just retiring on the team and McDaniels dissing him even made his job that much harder. 
    • I am late to the party but it doesn't matter because I would've been 1-1 anyway. I had the Lions and Washington so it offsets     Here are my Sunday picks/Monday pick: Ravens 17 Steelers 24 Chargers 19 Bills 27 Titans 27 Colts 30 Panthers 20 Vikings 21 Browns 27 Jags 17 Giants 24 Bengals 10 Cards 27 Pats 23 Dolphins 99 Jets 0 (Fluke's original quote) Saints 24 Broncos 13 49ers 17 Rams 30 Chiefs 34 Bucs 24 Bears 17 Packers 27 Seahawks 31 Eagles 17
    • Yes, love the limited stuff from Harris. I really want to see more routes from him, but overall, love what he's doing. I'd love for him to be a long term answer at slot if Campbell moves to Z.    I'm up in the air on specs. I need to see him hit some long ones, as well as some additional clutch kicks. Glasgow, like I said, I just don't expect much from. Doubt he's ever a contributor on D, but if he kills it on ST, I'm happy.    A buddy of mine (a Ball State grad/fan), thinks Pinter develops into a RT, and the Colts will eventually move Smith over to LT (when AC retires), and let Pinter take RT. I don't know about all that, but I do agree Pinter might develop into more than we think.    I think Pittman will develop into a long term and consistent WR for us. I know he's just starting to emerge, but he just has the look. Good/willing blocker, good hands, etc.. He might not be the 50/50 guy I want, but I also think he might be better at in-stride catching than I thought.    JT, I think he'll be fine once he gets acclimated and use to the run blocking scheme. I don't want to diminish his talent, but most RBs should be able to be successful behind our OL, and he's better than most.    Blackmon is the most interesting to me. He's always been a hammer which I love. He's struggled though in coverage in college, and as we saw, got burnt deep a few games ago. Not sure if he's too aggressive forward, or just struggles with coverage and range. I hope it's just aggressiveness. It definitely helped him when they moved him from CB to S in college, but at the same time, Utah ran a ton of man, which we do not. Love most of what I've seen thus far. I just hope it's not a case where teams get film on him, and start testing him deep a lot. We've been fortunate to play some bad Os early that simply don't go deep a bunch. Will be interesting to follow.
    • It's Rivers he will play, the dude is made of steel  . He played with a torn ACL.
