Peyton Manning is hurt with a neck injury and he is starting to get nicked up the last few years. They have no proven backup. Dan Orlovsky and Curtis Painter are not reliable backups. The defense is not that good and they still don't have a very good running game.

This is the year Houston takes the South. The Texans went out and tried to improve a horrible defense by acquiring Jonathan Joseph from the Bengals. He is 1 of the better CB's in the League. He had 42 tackles, 5 PD and 3 INT's for the Browns last season. He instantly improves Houston's NFL worst pass defense (268ypg). They also went out and drafted CB Brandon Harris.

Danieal Manning was added to help the secondary as well.

San Diego will be better simply because Philip Rivers will have Vincent Jackson for a full season.

Their special teams was the reason they lost several games early in the season that ultimately cost them a playoff spot. They have a very well respected ST coach who will have them ready this season.

The Jets made some nice moves but the Colts will make a surge at the end of the year and untimately bump them out of the playoffs. I trust Manning a little more than Sanchez.


Manning will be fine. Houston is that one team that every year people say this is the year they get over the hump. They simply do not have what it takes to get the job done. The Colts are still the favorite. I honestly think you would have had a better shot arguing the Jags or Titans but thats neither here nor there.

Kansas City suprised everyone last year with the play and leadership of Matt Shaub. He will not dissapoint this season either. San Diego has a Quarterback but getting Vincent Jackson isnt going to help out as much as you seem to think. I mean how well did he help Cincinnati last season?

I have Chicago over Dallas primarily based on the Chicago defense. If Cutler can be a solid game manager and not try to control things by himself and make idiotic plays. The Bears should be a solid team and will slide into the 6 seed with a 10-6 record.

I like the Seahawks over Rams due to the fact that Seattle is better coached. I told you before that 8 or 9 wins takes this division. Seattle had a good draft and have a good coach to help these younger guys develop. The Rams are close but still a year away.


Manning will be fine?

Jim Irsay doesn't think he will be ready. Dan Orlovsky has 7 career starts (back in 2008) and Curtis Painter is not good at all. People think Indy will bring in a veteran but that's not the answer since they have a complicated offense to learn.

Matt Schaub plays in Houston.

KC was just 1-5 last season vs teams .500 or better. They had an extremely easy schedule last year and Cassel feasted against bad defensive teams. Charlie Weis left KC to go to Florida. Cassel will struggle imo.

Vincent Jackson never played for Cincinnati. The Chargers are a better overall team and were last year but ST was horrible. SD bounces back and wins the West.

Cutler may not last the year with this OL. They added Dallas rejects in Marion Barber and Roy Williams. Cutler manage the game? He had 16 INT's last season, 8th most in the League.

Tarvaris Jackson is the new starting QB in Seattle. Hasselbeck didn't have the best stats but he was a veteran who knew the offense. They added some nice pieces but it will take time for Jackson to learn.

The Rams have a better defense, 12th in ppg allowed last season and they went out and added LB Ben Leber


Look its a bird, its a plane, its DJ kicking my ****.

DJ you know that I am right, so just go ahead and concede now.

I have said my peace. DJ likes pickles for breakfast.

Dallas has a better shot over Bears because of their god awful OL and taking the Dallas rejects.

August 20, 2011  04:26 AM ET

There is so much disrespect for the Eagles

What have they proven?

Because they have a QB who hasn't played a full season since I don't even know when. The right side of their line is questionable, the back end of their secondary is weak, and the have question marks at LB. Yes there is a lot of potential there but they have their fair share of questions as well.

One is here. I'm going to let DJ try to explain this one.

Roy Williams will surprise now that he's back with Martz. However, that OL is horrible so Cutler may have a hard time staying upright.

And no argument can convince me of this until I actually see the same 12 teams.

Chargers are the most overrated team in NFL history. No way they dethrone the AFCWest defending champs, Chiefs.
