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

I don’t gamble, and don’t do avatars. But you can razz me about it if it doesn’t happen. :lol:

Agree...Denver is on the decline. Aging WRs, holes on defense, an average O line, and zero running game. Cousins will struggle badly.

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

This is a strange day as I end up agreeing with B2B again. I don't think Cousins is all that.

Next Years AFC playoff seeding and records

4. Chargers (10-6)
5. Steelers (11-5)
6. Jaguars (10-6)

Patriots maintain
Texans surge with their 2 best players back
Ravens back to normal after all their injuries
Chargers play to their potential more often
Steelers/Jags slide a little. Steelers lose twice to Ravens to lose tie breaker
Titans, Bills, Chiefs no bueno

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.
