http://www.fannation.com/blogs/post/247717
<p><strong>Sunday Night Quarterback<br />Week 1</strong></p><p><strong>Big Story of the week:</strong> Tom Brady's year might be done. That opens a huge, gaping door in the AFC, and it looked like only a couple teams wanted to walk through it. San Diego lost on a last second touchdown pass, Indianapolis looked more like the Bears offense as they struggled Sunday night, and Jacksonville lost a tough divisional game against Tennessee. The only two AFC teams that seemed up for the challenge were Pittsburgh, who destroyed Houston, and Buffalo, who dismantled Seattle. With New England losing Brady, the AFC is wide open for the taking --- question is- who wants it?</p><p><strong>The Fine Fifteen:<br />1.</strong> New England (1-0) - Yea, they struggled without Brady, but they hold the number 1 spot until we see how they do next week.<br /><strong>2.</strong> Dallas (1-0) - The Cowboys had an all-around great team game beating a decent Browns team on the road. <br /><strong>3.</strong> Pittsburgh (1-0) - The score was no indication of how dominant the Steelers were. The Texans got 14 of their 17 points after the Steelers had started pulling starters and looking forward to the Browns<br /><strong>4.</strong> New York Giants (1-0) - Strahan who? Osi who? The G-Men looked impressive as they faced a Redskin team that looked lost for most of Thursday night.<br /><strong>5.</strong> Philadelphia (1-0) - They showed why many were picking them as the NFC representative in the Super Bowl. Keep in mind that they were hosting the lowly Rams.<br /><strong>6.</strong> New Orleans (1-0) - HUGE week 1 win at home against the division rival Bucs. Let's see if this team rides the momentum.<br /><strong>7.</strong> Buffalo (1-0) - Dismantled the Seahawks at home both offensively and defensively. If Brady is out for significant time, these Bills could win the division.<br /><strong>8.</strong> Tennessee (1-0) - This team surprised me the most in week 1, beating the division rival Jags at home. More impressively, they forced Garrard to throw 2 interceptions and held the Jags to 33 rushing yards.<br /><strong>9.</strong> San Diego (0-1) - That last second TD ruined an otherwise great game by Rivers.<br /><strong>10.</strong> Green Bay (0-0) - Will Rogers make the Pack forget about Favre?<br /><strong>11.</strong> Minnesota (0-0) - Will AD pick up where he left off?<br /><strong>12.</strong> Carolina (1-0) - Beating San Diego on the road without Steve Smith might be proof that this team will be a contender come January.<br /><strong>13.</strong> Jacksonville (0-1) - Unfortunate to run into the Titans at home, a team that always plays the Jags tough.<br /><strong>14.</strong> Indianapolis (0-1) - Losing at all in the first 2 months of the season is a surprise. Losing at home to the Bears is unacceptable.<br /><strong>15</strong>. New York Jets (1-0) - Darrelle Revis saved the Jets from total humiliation. The next two weeks will show us if these are the Jets of last year or the new Jets (vs. New England and at San Diego)<br /> <br /><strong>Stat of the Week:</strong> Before the Dolphins lost today, the previous six teams to finish the season before with only 1 win won their opener.</p><p><strong>Players of the Week:</strong><br /><strong>QB:</strong> Donovan McNabb - 361 pass yards and 3 TDs<br /><strong>RB:</strong> Michael Turner - 220 rush yards and 2 TDs getting a chance to show he was worth the offseason money.<br /><strong>WR:</strong> Plexico Burress - no touchdowns, but 10 catches and over 100 yards plus a big fat extension..<br /><strong>D/St:</strong> Chicago Bears - If they keep this up all year, they might be the back to their Super Bowl form.<br /> </p><p><strong>Goat of the Week:</strong> The Indianapolis Colts. Losing your home opener against the Bears in a new building just screams of bad karma.<br /><strong>Honorable Mention:</strong> St. Louis Rams. This just in: these games count - please show up next week.</p><p><strong>MVP Watch:</strong> (I know it's early....but why not?)<br /><strong>1.</strong> Donovan McNabb<br /><strong>2.</strong> Drew Brees<br /><strong>3.</strong> Albert Haynesworth (he needs some recognition)<br /><strong>4.</strong> Michael Turner<br /><strong>5.</strong> Tom Brady - with the injury, we'll see how valuable he is</p><p><strong>Random Thoughts for the week<br />1.</strong> Thank God the NFL is back<br /><strong>2.</strong> Brett Favre still throws the prettiest deep ball around<br /><strong>3.</strong> The hit on Brady's knee looked horrible. I wouldn't be surprised if he's done for the year.<br /><strong>4.</strong> Nice victory for the Saints and the people of New Orleans<br /><strong>5.</strong> So this is the Reggie Bush we've been expecting for a couple years now<br /><strong>6.</strong> Good to see Marvin Harrison back.<br /><strong>7.</strong> Nice ballgame Joe Flacco<br /><strong>8.</strong> Start packing your bags Marvin Lewis<br /><strong>9.</strong> Was it just me or did the Indianapolis/Chicago game drag on forever?<br /><strong>10.</strong> Lot of upsets in week 1<br /><strong>11.</strong> Warner should lead the Cardinals to the playoffs if he can stay healthy.<br /><strong>12.</strong> NFL = No Fun League. No Ocho Cinco yet. Flagging TO's sprinter celebration. Seriously, let the players have fun.<br /><strong>13.</strong> I doubt Ricky Williams will make it through the entire year<br /><strong>14.</strong> Is East Carolina for real?</p><p><strong>Parting thought of the week:</strong> Usually the Monday Night Football matchups are dull and boring, but week 2 should be a thriller: Philadelphia at Dallas.</p><p><strong>Second Parting thought</strong>: How much did the Colts miss Jeff Saturday?</p>Mon, 08 Sep 2008 03:06:45 GMThttp://www.fannation.com/blogs/post/247717The True Moderator100 Fearless Predictions for the 2008 NFL season

GMThttp://www.fannation.com/blogs/post/245119The True ModeratorSunday Night QB Pre-Season Power Rankings
http://www.fannation.com/blogs/post/237516
<p> </p><p><strong>1. New England Patriots</strong> - Easiest Schedule and returning the key players from a team that went 16-0 in the regular season last year earns the top spot.<br /><strong>2. Indianapolis Colts</strong> - Peyton will be healthy and lead the team with the best chance to unseat the Pats.<br /><strong>3. Jacksonville Jaguars</strong> - If Garrard can repeat last year's performance then the Jags have a shot at taking the division. <br /><strong>4. Dallas Cowboys </strong>- The class of the NFC look to win their first playoff game in over a decade.<br /><strong>5. San Diego Chargers</strong> - The loss of Meriman drops them to number 5. If they can overcome his loss, this team has a shot to win it all.<br /><strong>6. Pittsburgh Steelers</strong> - They do have the hardest schedule, but this team has a lot of depth and a TON of weapons for Big Ben to use.<br /><strong>7. New York Giants</strong> - While they are the defending champions, they have lost several key players from that team due to retirement and injuries.<br /><strong>8. Cleveland Browns </strong>- Can they repeat the magical 2007 season? Their secondary could hurt them in the long run.<br /><strong>9. Seattle Seahawks </strong>- Heck of a defense and enough passing weapons should make the fans forget about Alexander in a hurry.<br /><strong>10. New Orleans Saints</strong> - We know their offense has the weapons, adding Vilma and Ellis should help their defense. Reggie Bush has to emerge has a number 1 back for this team to have a shot at winning it all.<br /><strong>11. Green Bay Packers </strong>- Rogers will do just fine...<br /><strong>12. Minnesota Vikings</strong> - Can Jackson stay healthy and not prevent this team from taking the division?<br /><strong>13. Buffalo Bills</strong> - Edwards and Lynch will continue to make strides as these Bills could be a playoff contender by the end of the year.<br /><strong>14. Philadelphia Eagles</strong> - DeSean Jackson will quickly become McNabb's favorite target and these Eagles could be a real contender if McNabb can avoid the injury bug that always seems to bite<br /><strong>15. Tampa Bay Buccaneers</strong> - This team could win a wide-open division, but I don't see them going much further than that.<br /><strong>16. New York Jets</strong> - Brett Favre and the offseason moves help, but still not enough to get them to the 10 win mark and into the playoffs.<br /><strong>17. Washington Redskins </strong>- Will Jason Campbell be able to lead this team to the playoffs? I say unlikely only because of the other talented teams in this division.<br /><strong>18. Arizona Cardinals </strong>- Apparently Warner is the answer, but for how long?<br /><strong>19. Denver Broncos -</strong> Without Marshall, the first four games could be a struggle. If Cutler can improve his play, this team could shoot up the rankings.<br /><strong>20. Houston Texans</strong> - Up and coming team that is stuck playing in possibly the best division in football. <br /><strong>21. Tenessee Titans</strong> - Will White have the endurance to last an entire year? We know their defense is solid if Haynesworth is healthy, but I still think VY is overrated.<br /><strong>22. Chicago Bears -</strong> Orton has looked good so far, but this team has little to no weapons offensively to compete even with their defense and Hester.<br /><strong>23. Carolina Panthers </strong>- Stewart will prove to be a great pick with his immediate impact, but this team's success hinges on the elbow of Jake Delhomme<br /><strong>24. Cincinnati Bengals</strong> - Their defense and attitude are all that's keeping them from contending in a tight division.<br /><strong>25. Baltimore Ravens </strong>- Lack of a QB and an aging defense means this could be the beginning of a couple bad seasons in Baltimore<br /><strong>26. Detroit Lions </strong>- The overhaul on the offensive strategy could make for another down year in Detroit.<br /><strong>27. St. Louis Rams </strong>- Maybe this ranking is unfair as injuries were the cause of their bad year last year, but without knowing if Jackson will be in season shape by week 1 forces me to put them this low to start.<br /><strong>28. San Francisco 49ers</strong> - Well Alex Smith looks to be an expensive backup, but this team has the weapons if they can all come together and perform for once.<br /><strong>29. Oakland Raiders</strong> - They will do better than last year, but the core of this team is still young and inexperienced.<br /><strong>30. Atlanta Falcons </strong>- Ryan and Turner can win a few games for them, but it will be another long year.<br /><strong>31. Miami Dolphins</strong> - They can't do worse than last year, but don't look for them to do much better.<br /><strong>32. Kansas City Chiefs</strong> - The youngness of this team and inexperience all around coupled with Johnson coming off an injury plagued season make the Chiefs my pick for the number 1 slot come April.</p>Sun, 24 Aug 2008 22:28:40 GMThttp://www.fannation.com/blogs/post/237516The True ModeratorBREAKING NEWS: Jeff Garcia and J

http://www.fannation.com/blogs/post/224176
<p><br />One of the most debated issues here on Fannation is top 10 QBs all-time. While stats and championships should be the deciding factor, name recognition also plays a vital role. <br /><br />In an effort to show how much of a role it plays, I researched 21 QBs, pulled out stats that might not be known to everyone (like the amount of yards or TDs) and put them down below and listed them from A-U.<br /><br />I would ask that you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE not reveal which QB is which. Leave that up to me for a follow up blog. But please feel free to comment on the numbers or even rank them yourself. <br /><br />What would be most effective is if you would rank your top 10 by name, then right below it, rank your top 10 by the numbers I have below. BUT DON'T TRY AND FIGURE OUT WHO THE LETTERS ARE!!! <br /><br />If we get enough participants, I'll make comprise a list of top 10 by name, and top 10 by numbers only voting.<br /><br />(it's retired

Reggie Wayne stepped up and recorded career highs in catches (104) and yards (1,510).</p><p>Indianapolis' defense in 2007 ranked first in the entire league in points allowed and third in yards/game. This was all done with Dwight Freeney suffering a season-ending injury in the ninth game of the year.</p><p>Adam Vinatieri missed every field goal he attempted from beyond 40 yards last year, so he can hardly be relied upon anymore to put points up on the board. </p><p>All in all though, the Colts should have a top offense once again, and their defense should continue to excel. Look for the Colts to drop a few games on the road within the division, but defend their new home turf. </p><div><img

In his 12 starts, Garrard threw for 2,509 yards, 18 touchdowns and most impressively, he only threw three interceptions. Jacksonville ranked sixth in offense in 2007, averaging 25.7 points per game.</p><p>One of the big criticisms though was the lack of production from their receiving corp. Matt Jones recent cocaine arrest won't help.</p><p>Northcutt led the team with 44 receptions, 601 yards and four scores. To compliment Northcutt, the Jags signed Jerry Porter and traded for Troy Williamson. These two should help balance out the Jaguars offense.</p><p>Fred Taylor can't have as good of a year as he had last year, can he? If he does, the Jags should win their division (assuming Garrard protects the football as well as he did in 2007). I predict Taylor does not have as good of a season, and as a result, they finish second in the best division in football.</p><div><img title="http://images.salon.com/news/feature/2006/05/10/ministries/story.jpg " src="http://images.salon.com/news/feature/2006/05/10/ministries/story.jpg " height="300" alt="http://images.salon.com/news/feature/2006/05/10/ministries/story.jpg " width="500" /></div><p> </p><p><img title="http://nfl.imageg.net/graphics/product_images/p1713504reg.jpg " src="http://nfl.imageg.net/graphics/product_images/p1713504reg.jpg " height="220" alt="http://nfl.imageg.net/graphics/product_images/p1713504reg.jpg " width="220" /><br /><strong>Houston Texans</strong> (Projected: 8-9 wins)</p><p><strong>Key Departures:</strong> QB Quinn Gray, RB Ron Dayne, TE Jeb Putzier, OT Jordan Black, C Steve McKinney, C Mike Flanagan, C Drew Hodgdon, DE Earl Cochran, OLB Danny Clark, OLB Charlie Anderson, OLB Shawn Barber, CB Roc Alexander, S Von Hutchins, S Jason Simmons, S Curome Cox. </p><p><strong>Key Additions:</strong> RB Chris Brown, WR Tim Carter, TE Ryan Krause, C Chris Myers, OLB Rosevelt Colvin, OLB Chaun Thompson, OLB Kevin Bentley, CB Jacques Reeves, CB Jimmy Williams, S Nick Ferguson. </p><p><strong>2008 Draft:</strong><br />1/26 Duane Brown Offensive tackle Virginia Tech<br />3/79 Antwaun Molden Cornerback Western Kentucky<br />3/89 Steve Slaton Running back West Virginia<br />4/118 Xavier Adibi Linebacker Virginia Tech<br />5/151 Frank Okam Defensive tackle Texas<br />6/173 Dominique Barber Safety Minnesota<br />7/223 Alex Brink Quarterback Washington State</p><p>The 2007 Texans were supposed to make a splash and finish above .500. However, new QB Matt Schaub and all-pro receiver Andre Johnson played in only five games together and never developed much chemistry. Johnson played in only nine games, but the Texans were 6-3 when he started.</p><p>Johnson is obviously one of the top receivers in the NFL. In those nine starts, he had 60 receptions for 851 yards and eight touchdowns. Translate that over a 16-game slate, and Johnson would have registered 107 receptions, 1,512 yards and 14 touchdowns.</p><p>The Texans also looked like draft gurus for picking Mario Williams over Reggie Bush. Williams had 14 sacks last year, but 10 of those sacks came in the final seven games of the season. The third year defensive end should continue to improve this year as he looks to establish himself as the best past rusher in the game.</p><p>I predict the Texans flirt with .500 and maybe even get over it if Schaub and Johnson stay healthy. These Texans aren't the push-overs they once were.</p><p> </p><div><img title="http://blog.kir.com/archives/images/Andre%20Johnson.jpg" src="http://blog.kir.com/archives/images/Andre%20Johnson.jpg" height="478" alt="http://blog.kir.com/archives/images/Andre%20Johnson.jpg" width="512" /></div><p> </p><p> </p><div><img title="https://www.americansportscollectibles.com/Tennessee-Titans-Helmet.jpg " src="https://www.americansportscollectibles.com/Tennessee-Titans-Helmet.jpg " height="200" alt="https://www.americansportscollectibles.com/Tennessee-Titans-Helmet.jpg " width="225" /></div><p><strong>Tennessee Titans</strong> (Projected: 8-9 wins)</p><p><br /><strong>Key Departures:</strong> RB Chris Brown, WR David Givens, TE Ben Troupe, TE Ben Hartsock, G Jacob Bell, G Benji Olson, DE Antwan Odom, DE Travis LaBoy, DT Randy Starks, OLB Gilbert Gardner, CB Pacman Jones, CB Kelly Herndon.</p><p><br /><strong>Key Additions:</strong> WR Justin McCareins, TE Alge Crumpler, TE Dwayne Blakley, G Jake Scott, G Isaac Snell, DE Jevon Kearse, OLB Josh Stamer, CB Chris Carr. <br /><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>2008 Draft:</strong><br /> * 1st round(24)-Chris Johnson, running back, East Carolina University<br /> * 2nd round(54)-Jason Jones, defensive tackle, Eastern Michigan University<br /> * 3rd round(85)-Craig Stevens, tight end, University of California<br /> * 4th round(103)-William Hayes, defensive end, Winston-Salem State University<br /> * 4th round(126)-Lavelle Hawkins, wide receiver, University of California<br /> * 4th round(134)-Stanford Keglar, linebacker, Purdue University<br /> * 7th round(229)-Cary Williams, cornerback, Washburn University</p><p>Personally, I thought the Titans were the worst playoff team in 2007. Their offense was pathetic at times, but they did make the playoffs, and that's what matters.</p><p>LenDale White had a less-than-stellar 3.7 yards-per-carry average and let's not forget the Titans had a league-low 9 passing touchdowns in 2007.</p><p>Instead of boosting a receiving corp that looks more like an arena league roster, they reached for a running back with a blazing 40 time. </p><p>They might have the defensive player of the year though in Albert Haynesworth. Tennessee ranked eighth in defense, allowing 18.6 points per game. Haynesworth played in 12 games with the Titans allowing 15.3 points per game. In the four games Haynesworth missed due to his hamstring injury, the Titans allowed 28.5 points per game. Haynesworth is the reason they made the playoffs last year, and if he can stay healthy, the Titans might be able to sneak in again.</p><p>I personally don't like Vince Young, and I'm not convinced that he is the answer for the Titans. I think VY struggles in 2008 and their offense again will rank in the bottom half of the league. They simply did not bring in any receiving weapons, and LenDale White cannot be relied upon as a feature back. As a result, the Titans won't make the playoffs, but won't be picking near the top of the draft either.</p><p><strong><img title="http://weblogs.newsday.com/sports/football/bob_blog/vinceyoung.jpg" src="http://weblogs.newsday.com/sports/football/bob_blog/vinceyoung.jpg" height="327" alt="http://weblogs.newsday.com/sports/football/bob_blog/vinceyoung.jpg" width="350" /></strong></p>Fri, 11 Jul 2008 21:12:45 GMThttp://www.fannation.com/blogs/post/215456The True ModeratorAFC North Preview

Out of their 10 non-division opponents, they face 7 teams that made the playoffs last year. They open up with the easier portion of their schedule and hope to be no worse than 3-2 going into their bye week. Weeks 10-14 provide the make-or-break stretch of games for the Steelers having Indianapolis, San Diego, then Cincinnati at home before having to travel to Gillette Stadium to face the Patriots. If that wasn't bad enough, they return home the following week to face the Dallas Cowboys. Throw in the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants at home in week 8, and you see why I picked the Steelers to have only 8 or 9 wins. </p><p><br />The Steelers allowed 47 sacks last year and lost all-pro lineman Alan Faneca to the Jets. They will need their line play to improve greatly if they want to hold off the Browns and win the division. </p><p><br />The Steelers answered Big Ben's calls for a tall wide receiver when they drafted Limas Sweed in the second round. Sweed will add another dimension to an already explosive Pittsburgh Offense. </p><p><br />Troubled by Willie Parkers down year and subsequent injury problems, the Steelers drafted Richard Mendenhall in the first round. He will help be a great 1-2 punch for the Steelers backfield. Another move that was overlooked by man was the signing of Mewelde Moore. Moore can has exceptional catching abilities out of the backfield, and will be an asset in the return game.</p><p><br />Look for the Steelers to struggle in the middle of the season and meet the Browns in week 17 with the division (and a playoff birth) on the line.</p><p> </p><div><img title="http://www.bigbennews.com/articles/img_2005/espnstainless.jpg" src="http://www.bigbennews.com/articles/img_2005/espnstainless.jpg" height="400" alt="http://www.bigbennews.com/articles/img_2005/espnstainless.jpg" width="284" /></div><br /><br /><br /><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><div><img title="http://www.sonshi.com/krulak-browns.gif" src="http://www.sonshi.com/krulak-browns.gif" height="335" alt="http://www.sonshi.com/krulak-browns.gif" width="416" /><br /><strong>Cleveland Browns</strong> (Projected: 8-9 wins)<br /></div><p><strong><br />Key Departures:</strong> ILB Chaun Thompson, WR Tim Carter, CB Kenny Wright, CB Leigh Bodden, DE Orpheus Roye, <br /><strong><br />Key Arrivals</strong>: WR Dante Stallworth, CB Terry Cousin, LB Shantee Orr, DT Shaun Rogers, DT Corey Williams, <br /><strong><br />2008 Draft:</strong><br />4 5 (104) Beau Bell Linebacker UNLV<br />4 11 (111) Martin Rucker Tight End Missouri<br />6 24 (190) Ahtyba Rubin Defensive Tackle Iowa State<br />6 25 (191) Paul Hubbard Wide receiver Wisconsin<br />7 25 (231) Alex Hall Defensive End St. Augustine's<br /><br /><br />Derek Anderson came out of nowhere in 2007 to lead the Browns to 10 wins, but he isn't consistent, and threw 19 interceptions. His QB rating was a meager 82.5, and he had 9 TDs to 10 Ints in his final 7 games (including an ugly 4 INT game against the Bengals that cost the Browns a playoff birth). I'm predicting he comes back down to earth a little bit this year and doesn't repeat the 29 TDs he had last year.</p><p><br />The Browns defense was pathetic last year ranking 30th in total defense and 21st in points allowed last season. While they did add a lot of talent on their defensive line, will it be enough to make up for the lack of talent at the linebacker and defensive back positions?</p><p><br />Jamal Lewis 1300+ yards last season, but he is likely to drop off in production as he isn't getting any younger.<br />Basically, I think Cleveland benefited from its cake schedule in 2007 and will come back to earth in 2008. While they will still contend for the division title, I predict Pittsburgh defeats them in week 17 to give the Browns their second straight, second place finish.</p><p> </p><div><img title="http://blogs.clevescene.com/cnotes/anderson.jpg" src="http://blogs.clevescene.com/cnotes/anderson.jpg" height="410" alt="http://blogs.clevescene.com/cnotes/anderson.jpg" width="300" /></div><br /><br /><br /><p> </p><p> </p><div><img title="http://www.prosportsmemorabilia.com/Images/Product/33-65/33-65683-F.jpg" src="http://www.prosportsmemorabilia.com/Images/Product/33-65/33-65683-F.jpg" height="355" alt="http://www.prosportsmemorabilia.com/Images/Product/33-65/33-65683-F.jpg" width="441" /><br /><strong>C</strong><strong>incinnati Bengals </strong>(Projected 6-7 wins)<br /></div><p><strong><br />Key Departures:</strong> DE Bryan Robinson, WR Chris Henry, C Alex Stepanovich, WLB Landon Johnson, DE Justin Smith, S Madieu Williams <br /><strong><br />Key Arrivals:</strong> TE Ben Utecht, LB Darryl Blackstock, DE Antwan Odom, <br /><strong><br />2008 Draft:</strong><br />1 9 Keith Rivers Linebacker Southern Cal.<br />2 46 Jerome Simpson Wide Receiver Coastal Carolina<br />3 77 Pat Sims Defensive Tackle Auburn<br />3 97 Andre Caldwell Wide Receiver Florida<br />4 112 Anthony Collins Offensive Tackle Kansas<br />5 145 Jason Shirley Defensive Tackle Fresno State<br />6 177 Corey Lynch Safety Appalachian State<br />6 207 Matt Sherry Tight end Villanova<br />7 244 Angelo Craig Defensive End Cincinnati<br />7 246 Mario Urrutia Wide Receiver Louisville<br /><br />With Cincinnati coming off an all-around disappointing 2007 campaign, 2008 is looking to be just as disappointing. </p><p><br />Will Rudi Johnson back back to the 1300+ yards, 10+ TD form Bengals fans were used to seeing? Or will Kenny Watson and Kenny Irons be the backs to carry the load this year? </p><p><br />Chad Johnson claimed he wouldn't play of Cincy all during the offseason, yet he showed up to the minicamp so it looks like he will be in a Bengal uniform for at least one more year. However, we will have to keep our eyes on the "minor" ankle surgery Chad underwent in the middle of June. He is expected to be fully recovered for the start of training camp. </p><p><br />Their awful defense lost Justin Smith, Madieu Williams, and Landon Johnson (arguably their three best players).

Joe Flacco is the QB of the future, but will the future be now? Kyle Boller has had his chance at the reigns and has failed miserably each time. Troy Smith showed some flashes of promise throwing 2 TDs and 0 Ints in the limited experience he got last year.</p><p><br />Willis McGahee went under-the-radar last year and put up 1207 yards rushing and 7 TDs. Seeing how the Ravens only scored 24 TDs total last year, McGahee was one of their few bright spots. The other offensive bright spot was Derrick Mason. Mason caught 103 balls for 1087 yards and 5 TDs being the primary receiver for the Ravens QB to throw at. Look for another year of frustration for Mason with the balls being thrown to him by 3 sub-par QBs. The only bright side for Mason is that he should be getting less coverage as teams stack 8 or 9 in the box to stop McGahee.</p><p><br />The Ravens Defense is another year older, and they allowed 27.2 points per game last year (26th). It will be another long season in Baltimore as the team struggles with injuries to the veterans again. </p><p> </p><div><img title="http://www.nflgridirongab.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/capt_bbf6f24e8e5046e5ae896e3b68b7b6ca_rams_ravens_football_baf207.jpg" src="http://www.nflgridirongab.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/capt_bbf6f24e8e5046e5ae896e3b68b7b6ca_rams_ravens_football_baf207.jpg" height="308" alt="http://www.nflgridirongab.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/capt_bbf6f24e8e5046e5ae896e3b68b7b6ca_rams_ravens_football_baf207.jpg" width="410" /></div><br /><p> </p>Thu, 10 Jul 2008 18:12:06 GMThttp://www.fannation.com/blogs/post/214995The True ModeratorAFC West Preview

Rivers also will look to become the third quarterback of his much accreddited draft class to make it to, and win the Super Bowl (following in the footsteps of Ben Roethlisberger and Eli Manning). <br />San Diego finished the 2007 regular season campaign winning their final 6 before losing to New England in the AFC Championship game without Tomlinson. <br />The Chargers schedule is the second easiest in the NFL behind only the New England Patiots. Their 2008 opponents won a meger 42% of their games in 2007. They get New England and Indianapolis at home, but have to travel to Pittsburgh, New Orleans, and Tampa Bay. <br />Look for the Chargers to win 11-12 games and recapture the AFC West division crown.<br /> <br /><img title="http://cfx.signonsandiego.com/sports/chargers/cfx/chargers_jersey.gif" src="http://cfx.signonsandiego.com/sports/chargers/cfx/chargers_jersey.gif" height="273" alt="http://cfx.signonsandiego.com/sports/chargers/cfx/chargers_jersey.gif" width="271" /> </p><p><strong>Denver Broncos</strong> (Projected: 8-9 wins)</p><p> </p><div><img title="http://www.avatarist.com/avatars/Sports/American-Football/Denver-Broncos/Denver-Broncos-Helmet.gif" src="http://www.avatarist.com/avatars/Sports/American-Football/Denver-Broncos/Denver-Broncos-Helmet.gif" height="120" alt="http://www.avatarist.com/avatars/Sports/American-Football/Denver-Broncos/Denver-Broncos-Helmet.gif" width="120" /></div><p><br /><strong>Key Departures</strong>: LB Ian Gold, WR Javon Walker, K Jason Elam, RB Travis Henry<br /><strong>Key Arrivals</strong>: Boss Bailey LB, Darrell Jackson WR<br /> <br /><strong>2008 Draft</strong>:<br />1 12 (12) R.

Hillis FB Arkansas</p><p>With a full year under his belt, look for Cutler to make some significant strides in his passing game. However, they lost 691 yards worth of running from the underachieving Henry, and they lost their safety valve in Elam. Their kicker could prove to be the difference in making the playoffs or just missing the party. The two kickers on their current roster, Garrett Harley and Matt Prater, have combined for 1 year worth of experience and have made only 1 field goal combined. <br />Clady should help beef up their line, but a big question is whether Selvin Young can carry the full load? If he can't, another question is who will step up to fill in as the number 2? <br />Brandon Marshall is a stud of a wide receiver who continues to thrive as a number 1 without much help from a number 2. <br />The Broncos allowed 142.6 yards per game rushing last year (30th in the league) and gave up 336 yards per game (19th). Their defense will have to improve greatly if they want to compete with the Chargers.</p><p><img title="http://www.thefantasykickoff.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/selvin-young-denver-broncos.jpg" src="http://www.thefantasykickoff.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/selvin-young-denver-broncos.jpg" height="359" alt="http://www.thefantasykickoff.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/selvin-young-denver-broncos.jpg" width="450" /> </p><p><br /><strong>Oakland Raiders</strong> (Projected: 7-8 wins)</p><p><img title="http://www.freewebs.com/cregan32/OaklandRaiders.jpg" src="http://www.freewebs.com/cregan32/OaklandRaiders.jpg" height="300" alt="http://www.freewebs.com/cregan32/OaklandRaiders.jpg" width="300" /> </p><p><br /><strong>Key Departures</strong>: Jerry Porter WR, Daunte Culpepper & Josh McCown QB, Warren Sapp<br /><strong>Key Arrivals:</strong> Kalimba Edwards DE, Javon Walker WR, Gibril Wilson S</p><p><strong>2008 Draft</strong>:<br />1 4 (4) D.

Schilens WR SDSU</p><p>The All-SEC tandum of Russell and McFadden should provide some sparks to wake up those Raider fans this year. The Raiders also added Javon Walker but lost Jerry Porter. If he can play up to his Green Bay level and prove that the Denver Walker was a fluke, he will be a favorite target of Russell and really open up some holes for McFadden and Fargas. Gibril Wilson comes over with 4 interceptions and a Super Bowl ring. He'll really help boost the secondary by playing the strong safety role where he can bring some big hits to help against the run. This move should also allow Huff to move into the free safety spot where his skill set is better utilized.<br />With Culpepper and McCown gone, this team is Russell's for better or for worse. Culpepper would have been nice to have around for another year, if only as a mentor to Russell.<br />The Raiders schedule allows for the Raiders to win more games than last year, having the Saints and Bucs on the road, and facing only 2 playoff teams outside of the division (Bucs and Pats). Look for the Raiders to improve significantly from last year.<br /> </p><p> <img title="http://bleacherreport.com/images_root/image_pictures/0026/9496/mcfadden.darren.draft_article.jpg" src="http://bleacherreport.com/images_root/image_pictures/0026/9496/mcfadden.darren.draft_article.jpg" height="300" alt="http://bleacherreport.com/images_root/image_pictures/0026/9496/mcfadden.darren.draft_article.jpg" width="450" /></p><p><br /><strong>Kansas City Chiefs</strong> (Projected: 3-4 wins)</p><p><img title="http://www.fansedge.com/Images/Product/33-50/33-50206-F.jpg" src="http://www.fansedge.com/Images/Product/33-50/33-50206-F.jpg" height="300" alt="http://www.fansedge.com/Images/Product/33-50/33-50206-F.jpg" width="300" /></p><p><strong>Key Departures:</strong> Jared Allen DE, WR Eddie Kennison, CB Ty Law, LB Kendrell Bell,</p><p><strong>Key Arrivals</strong>: none</p><p><strong>2008 Draft</strong>:<br />1 5 Glenn Dorsey DT LSU<br />1 15 Branden Albert G Virginia<br />Brandon Flowers Cornerback Virginia Tech<br />Jamaal Charles RB Texas<br />Brad Cottam TE Tennessee<br />DaJuan MorganSafetyNorth Carolina State<br />Will Franklin WR Missouri<br />Brandon Carr Cornerback Grand Valley State<br />Barry Richardson OT Clemson<br />Kevin Robinson WR Utah State<br />Brian Johnston LB Gardner-Webb<br />Michael Merritt TE Central Florida</p><p>While the Chiefs had the best draft, they failed to bring in any key free agents to help rebuild after their 4 win 2007 campaign. The big question mark for the 2008 season is at the quarterback position. It appears that Brodie Croyle will begin the season as the starter, with Damon Huard nipping at his heels. Tony Gonzalez is another year older, but doesn't appear as if he is slowing down at all. Larry Johnson will look to get back 2005 and 2006 form after rushing for 559 yards and playing in only 8 games last year due to injury. LJ really misses having all-pro lineman, and the Chiefs hope Albert can help boost their struggling line.<br />The Chiefs added some key pieces to the puzzle via the draft, but this team is a couple years away from being competitive. That being said, if LJ can bounce back to his form, this team could play a spoiler role come November and December.

Brink finished his career as the third leading passer, in terms of yards, in Pac-10 history, behind Carson Palmer and Derek Anderson During a game against Oregon State University in the 2005 season Brink set a new school record with 531 passing yards. Ahead 30-16 at the break, the Cougars, however, lost that game due in part to defensive and special teams lapses and other mistakes, but also because Brink threw 1 touchdown against 4 interceptions. For much of the 2006 season, Brink led the Pac-10 in passing yards. He was named second team All-Pac-10 for his efforts. The Cougars were at one point in the 2006 season ranked No. 25 in the nation with a 6-3 record, but lost their final three games to finish the year at 6-6. After his senior year at Washington State, Brink decided to enter the 2008 NFL Draft. Brink was drafted by the Houston Texans in the 7th round. Even though Brink was drafted in the 7th round he will compete for playing time in 2008. Brink is starting Training Camp behind Matt Schaub and Sage Rosenfels. If Brink can perform well during Training Camp and Preseason he may have a chance to share snaps with Schaub and Rosenfels.
