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.

    • Pittman  didn't get  enough  targets on sunday
    • I think it might come down to who has the final better record, the Colts or Ravens.  Reason being is that Patrick Queen is his chief competition.  Since the positions don't directly compare, and the Raven's D by media default is more respected than ours historically, I would be concerned if they finish with a better record and/or playoff seeding, especially since we already lost to them at home.  But I hope you're right.  He's been fantastic and perhaps may get votes for All Pro.  
    • You missed the purpose and argument of Dan's post, and that is that he thinks we should bring Rivers back.  The strawman part only occurs concerning that point.  Our actual record and Rivers part in it isn't up for argument.  It "is" rather than being an argument. It is simply a statistic, a fact and not open for debate.     The "strawman" argument is that we will need Rivers again NEXT YEAR.  The "strawman" portion concerns assuming our only alternative options would be the same as this years options were, in the future.  If Ballard decides there is a better option for next year, then you'd have to argue THAT specific (and completely unknown) option versus Rivers.  To do otherwise is a "strawman" argument.      
    • Your logic is wrong on so many levels. That is not a straw man argument at all as far as I can tell.   You are actually making a straw man argument by taking what Dan said and exaggerating it.    He said we could be 5-5 without PR, not that we would be.     Another distortion of logic in your post is that Ballard would have to feel that his option was better.  That is wrong.  It's a non-sequitur. What if Brady stayed in NE and Rivers signed in TB?  If Ballard thought PR was the best, then he would have to sign someone he thought was worse.     Teams do not always get to sign who they think is  better option.  In FA, the FA decides who is his best option, not the other way around.
    • Now if you are talking about beating KC in the playoffs, I don't think this team or any other is legitimately good enough.   But are you freaking kidding?  The last few weeks have proven that we are good enough to compete Supe.  Winning is not guaranteed, but surely it's pretty obvious that we are competitive with the best teams.   I didn't know if we were or not and was skeptical before Baltimore, but we've competed pretty well against them and since them.
