    Re: AFC starting to take shape



    What's this "Denver changed nothing"? They don't have their two best pass rushers from last year, and Bailey looks like he might not be having much impact this year either.

    Cincy- more of the same. Great talent, but whether it's the Red Rifle or Marvin, they just can't seem to get over the hump. Seem to lack mental toughness.
    We love Marvin here, but he is poor at clock management and he can no longer hide it. That and a few stupid penalties cost us a well played 1st game on the road. Doh!
    I want a Flacco jersey! Johnny Bench wore #5

    Re: AFC starting to take shape

    The only thing I will say with any kind of half way certainty is that JVille/Oakland/Cleveland will not be in the playoff mix this year. (And yes.... I know Oakland hung in there vs. the Colts but I see that as pure fluke) And just based on their crappy divisions alone you can count on the usual suspects being in the hunt... Denver/NE/Houston. Beyond that who the hell knows?

    Even decent teams left for dead already can surprise. Discount the Steelers at your own risk. I can easily see them as being like the Yankees of the last couple years.... an aging team with all kind of injuries and guys signed of the scrap heap yet against all odds staying in the thick of it to the end. Shoot...... I can even see the Jets being border line compettive in a last gasp rally around Rex. I guess I could add us here but no sensible "expert" is leaving us for dead already.
    They hate us..... but they want to BE us. (.... or at least poach all our players/coaches/FO people!)

( And maybe not even then )
    It usually takes 4 weeks to figure out who the surprise up and coming team is going to be as well as the surprise bad team. First 4 weeks is usually the feeling out period. Next 8 separates the pretenders from the contenders. That being said the division winners look to be set in 3 divisions. Den, NWE and Houston should all win their divisions. Pitt with injuries last weekend looks like they will have a tough time competing for the division and or wildcard. They may be 0-2 after Monday night. After week 4 we will have a better idea of who looks to be competing for the wildcard. Right now it looks to be Bal/cin, Indy, Ten, KC and Miami. Ravens probably have the toughest schedule based on winning the division last year.

    When we get to the 1/4 point of the season - then things will start to fall in place.

    Mathematically, I believe it's the 5/8 point...or when 62.5% of the games have been played.
    Hmmm, where's that slide rule? ... Bc

    Re: AFC starting to take shape

    True I like looking in quarters of season. But week one was fun. I mean not the 7tds on the ravens, but for a fanatic like me football is back.
    Denver looks strong again, but hope we get them again in playoffs. I think the defending Champs got work to do, but they love to work, so we still one of top 4 let alone 6 in the AFC. I like our QB and team. We will hopefully get it together by thanksgiving. And I so pumped for that day and game. Anyway , NE will get there Division. I hoping EJ Manuel plays good. But we will see if Miami is for real. Houston, fuckem. As for the North, Cincy will be Cincy , a very tough games again. And of course the sqeelers. I hate them period. But it's always drama with this team. I'm hoping Debo James get at least three shots on Ben Monday.
    It's early, but I love the joy of knowing football is back. Gotta love that.
