Ravens back to normal after all their injuries

What makes you think they won't have injuries again next year? Here's how old some key starters will be on opening day next season:
- Joe Flacco 33
- Jeremy Maclin 30
- Marshall Yanda 34
- Danny Woodhead 33
- Jimmy Smith 30
- Ladarius Webb 32
- Brandon Carr 32
- Albert McClellan 32
- Terrell Suggs 36

By contrast, only Villy, AB, Ben, and Mitchell will be 30 for the Steelers next year. Only Ben is over 31.

3/4 of their starting secondary is on the wrong side of 30. Their primary pass rusher is 36 with 2 blown achilles' in his past. Their top 3 pass catchers from last year are all over 30 (2 of whom are free agents), and they haven't developed a decent skill position player in years.

It's not so much that Baltimore has been snake bit by injuries, it's that they are way too reliant on older players (some, like Suggs and Woodhead have lengthy injury histories). Joe Flacco and Jimmy Smith's contracts are absolute albatrosses, and they haven't been able to sign/develop depth

Agree Pabst. Rats are what they are...not a good team.

I do enjoy this banter, and better yet, we get to wait on edge for 11 months to see how Tomlin will fuck up again come January. Lucky us.

I don't get this move. I guess Smith might be able to move a little better, but I don't consider him that much of an upgrade. They need much more help on the defensive side.
Redskins since the mid-90's have been like a more blinged-out version of the Browns.

Avatar bet? There's NFW Denver comes close to winning that division next year. I think they'll be last.

Next year's pecking order:
NE
PIT
KC
JAX
LAC
--------
everybody else


Putting PITT in front of JAX, hunh?

I am for now. I'd like to see Jax prove it, now that everyone will be gunning for them. I have a feeling they will take a small step back before they move forward.

So....the 4 division winners plus a team that just missed the playoffs. Way to go out on a limb ;)

I'm saying that the teams on the outside looking in aren't going to get much better this year, barring a Jacksonville spending spree extravaganza that actually works... unlikely.

Jacksonville. By far.

They'll have Deshaun Watson and J.J. Watt back in division, everyone will be up for their game each week, and Blake Bortles.

At this point I need to see Pitt prove it can beat JAX. Fool me twice, ok, but not more.

That's fair. We certainly figured out their defense, which is supposed to be the strength of their team. It will be an interesting matchup.

I think the Chiefs have really set themselves up to be a good team next year. Mahomes is Key but he has a lot of talent and cheesesteak andy can develop qb’s.

Also, Washington gave them a young CB Fuller in the deal and he is supposedly pretty good- adding to KC’s already stacked secondary.

and they get Eric Berry back

I think the Chiefs are going to be just fine. I'm interested to see: A. how much freedom will they allow Mahomes and B. what happens after he makes mistakes/fails?

Just a feeling Pabst...I think they have the ammunition to get better very quickly and some of the top free agents may start to acknowledge it.


You can be rest a-muthafuckingodamned-ssured, Haley WILL have that offense humming, no matter the QB. Though I do think they roll with what they got, and a rookie, and forego any high priced free agent. That said, Bradford on a one yr would make sense. Meanwhile in Pitt, Tomlin is scheming to make his WR screen a centerpiece in Fich's offense.

I will say this: Cousins and Haley go together like bread & butter. That's a good mix. Josh Gordon stays healthy and they draft Saquon... they could be competitive.

Wow totally forgot about Berry, he is an amazing player and Key to beating NE.

If the Steelers stand pat this offseason, I think we are going to be in trouble. Without doing a thing, NE is going to improve by getting Edelman back. Jagoffs are an agressive group, I have a feeling they are going to make a move to improve. This is going to be an exciting offseason- hope it starts with an Eagles celebration, but be careful what you wish for I guess because Wentz would make them favorites to repeat.

Steelers have a lot of work to do, but I am not expecting much.

Cousin's is about the most religious NFL player there is and you want to mix him with a cuckold watcher pervo like Haley?

Yeah, that'll go well.
