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.

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.

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.

U do realize that we finished 7 and 9,??

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.

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

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.

    • Right. Reich talked about it in the offseason...that explosive plays were a missing ingredient. Whether he practiced what he preached is a different story (and of course there’s context that goes into that...like who their QB was). I am just saying that he has indicated that he wants to be more than a methodical clock control offense. And I think Reich will look to do that...when they have the QB in place.   DVOA definitely has the Colts defense rated ahead of the offense. The Colts  overall defense was #7 and the overall offense was #12. More specific to passing, the Colts passing offense was #16 and the Colts passing defense was #8.   The defensive ratings are likely skewed by the first half of the season...but the offense had the easiest schedule of any team...and still managed to be middle of the pack in passing offense (according to DVOA).    Yes there’s room for improvement on defense...but it’s tough to expect better than a top 7 unit. An edge rusher will help with the pressure rates...but they have showed they can make big plays and create takeaways. I would say the defense is pretty damn close to being a viable SB winning defense (especially when teams like KC, GB and BUF are currently playing to go to the SB).   So the priority should be the passing offense. It’s the necessity to this team getting to the next level...which is a SB. Otherwise, they would have to buck a trend that only historically elite defenses have been able to do.   And to improve the offense...they need a franchise QB and additional weapons. 
    • Well Frank said moving him to tackle would be discussed this off-season so the Colts are at least considering it.  Rather they do it or not remains to be seen.
    • Good blooper reel of Cole vs Louisiana with 10s left in 2Q where the BJ takes him out.  Good backpedaling and change of direction with enough speed to build up enough force to get knocked down.  May need some NFL strength conditioning to help shed blocks.
    • Do I need to point this out? We all know how valuable LT's are in the draft. If Quentin Freaking Nelson was LT quality, he would have not been paid a # ton of money to be a guard. He would have been scooped up ASAP as a TACKLE.     What....like every team missed this and suddenly he can be just as awesome as a tackle? 
    • Liking what I seen and read on LB Cole.  Looks like a good player capable of handling SAM and MLB rotations.
