QUOTE(#14):

That was a helluva prediction!!!,Ifn Kurt was still Playing?I'd give them a nod also.

Yeah it really was, to guess the correct teams in May in amazing, to miss the exact score by 4 points is freaky.

The AFC North is gonna be a tough division, so there is going to be a very tested team from that division and they are gonna have a good playoff run. I'm gonna say Jets, Steelers, Bengals, or Cowboys (that one was hard to admit) may have some of the best chances.

Yea, I thought that, but if you look at it there are some nice threads that get started by this crap.

I definitely think the ravens have a great chance of making the super bowl. With that being said, the bengals are right on our tails. If TO and Chad create problems for the bengals though, they shouldn't be a problem to get past. I am still worried about the jets and the dolphins in the afc, even the colts. I feel the colts are gradually moving back into the pack as opposed to the head of the pack. The Jets, even with Revis, are dangerous. The only thing that can hold them back is Sanchez regressing, which is a possibility.

AFC Top 5 Teams I have in order: Jets, Ravens, Dolphins, Colts, Bengals. Followed closely by the texans and then the chargers. The chargers have too many holdouts right now, too much drama. Merriman, V. Jackson, and O'Neill are all holding out, and they are keys to the team on both sides of the football.

The Texans need to figure out their running back situation. once they do that, they could beat out the colts in the division.

NFC Top 5 Teams in Order: Packers, Saints, Panthers, 49ers, Vikings. Followed by the cowboys, giants, falcons.

Too many questions after the first 2 teams for me. The Panthers will be good. The vikings would have been #3 yesterday, but now with Sidney Rice out for the first 8 weeks and Percy Harvin and his headaches...they are a question. I have some confidence in alex smith now that he has a good offense around him. Gore, Crabtree and V. Davis are a strong supporting cast.

I see Green Bay beating whoever comes out of the AFC in the Super Bowl.

When you think about it, it boils down to who's hot and healthy in December.
The Saints last year
Pittsburgh
New York Giants

We can all predict away but who would've picked the last three winners in mid-October? The Steelers were a 6 seed wild card, the Giants were written off in November that year and got hot and nobody ever picked the Saints because had been to only 2 playoffs games ever in their history.
