What's up everyone.  Haven't really been as active on here over the summer except for the Golf Contest weekly...but pumped up for another fantastic NFL season.  Ended up a good amount up for the season...predictions were a little off on some teams as usual.

Redskins, Colts, Lions, Vikings, and Seahawks were the farthest off on my win predictions, and more than likely everyone else's as well. 

As always, these are just my thoughts and I welcome ALL criticism and other opinions.  I know I won't be correct on all of them, but it's been enjoyable every year to look back in January and see how we did!

AFC EAST

1.  New England Patriots 11-5  (12-4 in 2012)

Bumping them down one win from last year.  Their offense will take a step backwards without Hernandez and Welker, and without Gronk for at least the first couple weeks of the season.  However, the biggest problem last year was their defense.  With another year of experience and no major losses on that side of the ball, I have to believe they will be much improved.  Bringing in Adrian Wilson I believe is a wonderful addition...veteran experience and incredible versatility.  Schedule as usual is generous being in the worst division in the NFL...they don't have to travel basically at all in the month of September, they have Denver and Pittsburgh coming into Foxboro.  Should be able to cruise to another division title.

2.  Miami Dolphins 8-8  (7-9 in 2012)


Would have considered putting them at 9-7 and possibly contending for a playoff spot, but the loss of Dustin Keller severely limits this offense, which was bad at best last year.  The good thing is that their offensive line is very good, and their defense is solid.  If Tannehill can improve upon last year's performance I see no reason why this team won't be a formidable opponent all year long.  Biggest worry for me on the Dolphins this season is their first month's schedule...if they slip up Week 1 @ Cleveland, they could be 0-5.  Absolutely have to improve upon the 18 points per game they put up last year.

3.  Buffalo Bills 5-11  (6-10 last year)

Would prefer to see EJ Manuel start at the QB position, as I believe that getting the rookies thrown into the fire as soon as possible has the most benefit.  Unfortunately they don't have an incredibly easy schedule, they don't have great receivers, teams are going to key in on Spiller or Jackson on just about every play.  Brought over Manny Lawson from Cincy to help them hopefully stop the run...as they were 2nd worst in the league last year.  Dareus, Williams, and Williams need to step up.  Mario Williams was once considered possibly the best defensive end/hybrid player out there, and now he might not even be top 15 or 20.  That's what one bad year can do, and he better step up.

4.  New York Jets  4-12  (6-10 in 2012)

Didn't even want to put them at 4 wins to be honest.  The QB situation is obviously well known but it doesn't matter who they put in there.  The running backs are well below average, the wide receivers are just flat out bad, and they don't have a solid tight end as a safety valve.  In years past they could at least lay claim to a stout defense...but losing Revis ends that real quick.  They don't have a dominant play maker on either side of the ball.  I really think they might be lucky to get to 4 wins this year, and hopefully it will be the end of Rex Ryan's pathetic coaching career and Mark Sanchez's pathetic quarterback career.

AFC NORTH

1.  Cincinnati Bengals  12-4  (10-6 in 2012)

Playoff team last year, and I saw them improve in just about every key category.  They were middle of the pack in passing and rushing offense last year, so they draft Gio Bernard and Tyler Eiffert in the first two rounds...fantastic selections.  Dalton and Green have another year of experience under their belt and should be able to put up more great numbers.  Biggest reason for me picking them as the North champions is their defense.  One of the best in the league, if not the best.  Not an incredibly difficult road schedule should mean a successful season for the Bengals.

2.  Baltimore Ravens  9-7  (10-6 in 2012)

I just cannot see a scenario where they match the success they had last season.  Their offense should be fine as they return just about everybody.  Biggest question there would be if Flacco decides to be less focused after receiving his ridiculously high contract.  The problem with the Ravens that I see is that you can definitely pass on this team now without Ed Reed.  I think he masked a lot of the inabilities of the secondary for the past ten years.  Going up against Green Bay and Detroit in the NFC North as well as two games against the Bengals probably won't help that cause.  They won't be terrible by any stretch, and will certainly still be in the playoff hunt...but when you lose two of the best defensive players of all-time in the same offseason, there is going to be a learning curve.

3.  Pittsburgh Steelers  8-8  (8-8 in 2012)


Keeping the Steelers at the same level as they were last year.  They desperately needed to improve their offense, and I didn't see enough out of free agency or the draft to say they will be better than last year.  The offensive line is decent, but nothing that will ensure Big Ben's health throughout the year.  The wide receivers are good at the top level with Sanders and Brown, but that's really about it and if there is an injury to one of them it could be trouble.  I'm also not crazy about the running back situation, especially having to go up against the teams that they have on their schedule.  One of my biggest factors in these predictions is looking at the weaknesses of the year before and asking myself if they improved, stayed the same, or got worse.  I don't see anything out of the Steelers to show they get better.

4.  Cleveland Browns  6-10  (5-11 in 2012)


Another year of experience playing together has to mean a win at least for the combo of Weeden and Richardson.  Unfortunately 5 of their 8 road games are against playoff teams from last season.  Their biggest weakness was time of possession and 3rd down possession.  As long as Weeden continues to progress as it seems like he will based on preseason performance those should improve a little bit.  Can't see them being a true contender yet simply because of their schedule...6 wins is a generous prediction.

AFC SOUTH

1.  Houston Texans  11-5  (12-4 in 2012)

Thought they overachieved a little bit last year.  What I feel is their biggest downfall heading into this year is their offensive line and lack of depth at wide receiver.  DeAndre Hopkins has looked very solid in preseason but is already seeing a few nagging injury problems.  Once Ed Reed can get on the football field, it should give them the added seniority this club needed.  JJ Watt is obviously a top tier defensive playmaker...and along with Joseph, Manning, Reed, and Cushing they have legitimate strength at every defensive position.  Their schedule didn't do them any favors this year as their first three road games are San Diego, Baltimore, and San Francisco. 

2.  Indianapolis Colts  9-7  (11-5 in 2012)


Absolutely have to drop them down a few wins from last year's incredible season.  I really like what they did on the offensive side of the ball in free agency getting Bradshaw and Hewyard-Bey...that will give them some veteran depth that they didn't really have last year.  The reason why I'm dropping them down a couple of wins is that they won't have the emotional boost that Chuck Strong gave them last year, and the biggest reason is that the defensive line is just absolutely bad.  They were 29th in the league last year guarding the run...and I don't think that will improve one bit.  When you have to go up against Arian Foster, Chris Johnson, and Maurice Jones-Drew for 6 games...and also McFadden and Lynch this year it's going to be a lot more difficult to get their offense on the field.  The good news is that their road schedule really isn't that difficult.

3.  Tennessee Titans  8-8  (6-10 in 2012)

This team intrigues me, and I can't figure out why.  I think Jake Locker has potential to be a mid-level quarterback.  I think Chris Johnson can put up 1600 yards and 15 touchdowns again.  I think their young wide receivers might be ready for a breakout year.  I think the addition of Bernard Pollard on defense will give them the toughness they were lacking last year.  The counter argument to that is the fact that Locker has had injury issues and has had one solid game in his career against Detroit, the worst pass defense in the league.  Chris Johnson has seen his carries and touchdowns decline, while his fumbles have increased.  The Titans are a tough one this year.

4.  Jacksonville Jaguars  2-14  (2-14 in 2012)


I generally hate picking a team to be flat out terrible two years in a row, and picking them to win only 2 games once again.  I mean, Joeckel will help solidify the offensive line that was 3rd to last in protecting the quarterback last year.  But is Gabbert really a quarterback that you WANT to protect?  I don't think he's good enough to lead this team...even though he has a stud running back and an up and coming stud receiver.  Geno Hayes and Posluzny are solid players for the defense, but I just don't see enough gamebreakers to make it worth it for the Jags. Their schedule is relatively tame, so they might make it up to 4 wins.

AFC WEST

1.  San Diego Chargers 10-6  (7-9 in 2012)

Yep...taking the Chargers to win the division.  I like the additions they made in the offseason.  King Dunlap and Fluker will give immediate help to a shaky offensive line.  Danny Woodhead will give them running back flexibility.  Their defense was very solid last year, and Dwight Freeney might still have a little bit in the tank...at the very least be a good teacher to Teo.  Their defensive line is the biggest worry I have, as they are not big names...but I still see the Chargers taking the division.

2.  Denver Broncos  9-7  (13-3 in 2012)

Doesn't matter how many times I look at this team, I am absolutely not convinced that this is the Super Bowl frontrunners.  Yes, Welker is a great target for Manning, they will have great chemistry.  But Manning is old, Welker is old, and they are both extremely fragile at this point in their career.  As usual in Denver it will be a running back by committee situation, as it has been for the past ten years, but Ball, Moreno, or Hillman don't scare me.  Their offensive line is average at best.  When it's all said and done however, the offense should be overall pretty good.  Their defense however, is where the issue lies.  Last year they were great...but this year they don't have Dumervil, and probably won't have Von Miller for a while as well.  Champ Bailey is hurt right now, and is not the Champ Bailey of 6 years ago.  I could very easily see Denver going 2-6 or 3-5 on the road...as the only "easy" games they have on the road are the two division games against the Raiders and Chiefs.  Not sold.

3.  Kansas City Chiefs  5-11  (2-14 in 2012)

They needed to find a passing game, and they went out and tried to fix that.  They got a quarterback that has proven that he can play in the NFL at a consistent level.  They got an offensive linemen in the draft who should be a stud.  They still have a stud running back who as long as he can stay healthy can do some big damage.  They got a proven NFL coach as well...and hopefully a fresh start for Reid is what he needed.  They should be much improved this year.

4.  Oakland Raiders 5-11  (4-12 in 2012)

Another team that I see improving upon last year's numbers.  I just don't like their quarterback situation enough. 5 wins might be a stretch.  Not too much else to say!!

Yeah... the Chargers aren't winning the division over the Broncos.  Rivers is a shell of the player he once was.  Just no chance with that prediction.  Also pretty sure Dalton isn't good enough for the Bengals to win 12 games.  He's holding them back from being able to compete in the playoffs.

Rivers still puts up good numbers...26 and 15 for 3600 yards is pretty solid.

NFC EAST

1.  Dallas Cowboys  9-7   (8-8 in 2012)


Everybody and their mother believes that this will be a crash and burn season for the Cowboys and lead to the firing of Jason Garrett.  My view is that the Cowboys never ever do things the easy way...so why not make the decision that much more difficult by winning the division, not going anywhere in the playoffs, and lead to all those questions once again?  They were terrible on defense last year.  I don't like them getting rid of Felix Jones as running back insurance.  But out of everyone in the NFC East, they have the easiest road schedule, and 5-3 on the road is where they should be.  If they can't go 4-4 at home, I would be very surprised.  That is usually the deciding factor in this division, as it has gone in order of road record the past three years.

2.  Washington Redskins  9-7  (10-6 in 2012)


I am trying really hard to love this team, but I just can't see them matching the magic of last season.  They are the most talented team in the NFC East in my mind, but when you have trips to Green Bay, Denver, Minnesota, and Atlanta on your schedule, it's going to be a tough road.  That's why I have to put them just behind the Cowboys.  RG3 will be very interesting to watch this year...to see if he calms down his running and recklessness or if he still plays balls to the wall.

3.  Philadelphia Eagles 7-9  (4-12 in 2012)

Might be the most enjoyable team to watch in the NFL this season.  Chip Kelly and Michael Vick together have all the potential in the world.  But I do still see Vick reverting back to his old ways in a few games.  Also, as we have seen from college coaches making the jump to the NFL, there is a big time learning curve in gameplanning and challenges and all that.  Their statistics were solid for the most part last season...just need to limit mistakes.

4.  New York Giants  7-9  (9-7 last year)


Struggled last year because of their horrible defensive play...got healthy this year up until this past weekend where their big play guy in the secondary Stevie Brown went down for the year.  Their line is solid with JPP and Tuck and Cullen Jenkins.  I just see their passing defense being as bad if not worse than what it was last year.  With Green Bay, Denver, Detroit, and San Diego (primarily passing teams) on the schedule...I see four potential losses right there.  Somewhat of a rebuilding season this year, and I wouldn't be surprised to see Tom Coughlin on the hot seat once again.

NFC NORTH

1.  Green Bay Packers  11-5   (11-5 in 2012)

Clearly still the class of this division, and one of the better teams in the NFL...but their schedule is absolutely brutal.  Early bye week, and a finishing stretch that has them traveling from Green Bay to New York to Green Bay to Detroit to Green Bay to Dallas to Green Bay to Chicago in the last 8 weeks of the year.  Hard to believe there won't be a few stumbles in that stretch, as well as the week 1 start @ San Fran.  Too good of a team to not be at the top however.

2.  Detroit Lions  9-7   (4-12 in 2012)

Most improved team in the NFL.  Not so much in the roster category, but looking at the schedules for the Vikings and the Bears, I believe the Lions have the best chance in the North to challenge the Packers.  They could very easily be 4-0 or 5-1 to start the season, enough to maintain the rest of the season.  Stafford and Megatron are unstoppable...Bush is a nice addition that will add a new aspect to the game...Ansah is another explosive defensive player for this team to add to Suh and Fairley and Glover and Tulloch and Levy.  They were middle of the pack in defense last year and should improve.

3.  Chicago Bears  7-9  (10-6 in 2012)

Do or die year for Jay Cutler in my mind...they were terrible last year in passing and with Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffrey and Earl Bennett returning that is a stat they need to get going.  Their defensive line is not much to talk about, and it will be very interesting to see how they move forward in the linebacking corps without Urlacher.  They have a tough start to the season and could be behind the 8-ball already when they have to end the year 4 out of 6 weeks on the road.

4.  Minnesota Vikings  6-10  (10-6 last year)

They picked up a fantastic weapon for Christian Ponder with Greg Jennings, but they have the absolute hardest road schedule in the division...their opponents put up a 73-55 record (.570) last year.  Ponder is clearly not a top level quarterback, with or without Jennings and Peterson.  Their defense is good enough by far to contend in most games, but I cannot see them winning more than 2 games on the road, and they might be in the first two weeks.  Just too difficult for them this year.

To each its own, The Chargers wont sniff the playoffs  I could give u a ton of reasons but based  off  of these predictions im not sure how much football u actually watch...The lions finishing 2nd ahead of the Bears and the defense they have The lions have the second toughest schedule in the league, a historically bad road team and no wideout outside of Calvin, Oline has questions the defense is plenty soft should once again get thrown on all over the field all game by whom ever is throwing it, there with no doubt last in the division...

NFC SOUTH

1.  Atlanta Falcons  13-3   (13-3 in 2012)


Probably could have even bumped them up another win as they were very good last year, and still improved coming into this year.  Got a beast running back to lighten the load of Matt Ryan.  Picked up Osi Umenyiora to strengthen to defensive line that ranked in the bottom of the league in sacks last year.  Just an absolutely stacked team in almost every way.

2.  Tampa Bay Buccaneers  10-6  (7-9 in 2012)


This is my so-called sleeper team of the year, and I am VERY big on Bucs this year.  They ranked in the top 15 in just about every statistical category last year except 1...passing defense.  So what do they do?  Go out on get Dashon Goldson and Darrelle Revis.  Josh Freeman is as steady and consistent a quarterback you are going to get.  They have one of the best offensive lines in the league to protect him.  Doug Martin showed last year that he can be special.  I like this team this year.

3.  New Orleans Saints 9-7  (7-9 in 2012)


Offense is spectacular in most areas, defense is lackluster in most areas.  When you have Drew Brees and Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham on offense you want to believe that this team is something special and contenders and all that...but there just isn't enough substance in a tough division and with a tough schedule to warrant a better record.  Ranked last in the NFL in defense last year, and what have they done to make you say that they will change that?

4.  Carolina Panthers  6-10  (7-9 in 2012)

Have to drop them down a win from last year's total because the division has improved so much.  Would have liked to see them strongly pursue another wide receiver to give Cam Newton a reason to stay in the pocket a little more and take some of the attention away from Steve Smith.  The best thing going for this team is that up the middle on defense they might be the best in the league.  They won't be blown out of any games simply because of that fact, and if Newton dedicates himself to ball possession and limiting turnovers, their win total will grow.  I just don't see it happening yet.

Appreciate the thoughts.  Like I said, this is what I believe will happen this season.  Yes, I do watch football.  Quite a bit actually, and I'm a pretty solid capper as well.

I like CMJohnson and his NBA stuff is excellent.  I just disagree but that's okay.  I own Rivers in one of my big money leagues and I don't really see him being that useful for me this year except against weak defenses, hence why I'd be shocked if they won the division.  Too many problems with that team.

NFC WEST

1.  San Francisco 49ers  14-2   (11-4-1 in 2012)

Lost a few games last year because of quarterback controversies in my opinion.  This year there is no controversy, Kaepernik is the guy...and he has some new toys this year.  This team is absolutely stacked from head to toe, most importantly on the defensive side of the ball.  I don't see much competition in this division.

2.  Seattle Seahawks   10-6   (11-5 in 2012)


Yeah, they are good...but I still think they overachieved last year...including the win/loss game against Green Bay.  They also had some lucky breaks late against the Patriots.  They are a playoff caliber team, the running back is great, wide receivers are very solid, offensive and defensive lines are above average.  I just see a few of those lucky breaks going in a different direction this year.

3.  Arizona Cardinals  6-10   (5-11 in 2012)

Gonna increase their win total by one because I think that's how much Carson Palmer will bring to this team.  He's not an incredible upgrade by any stretch, but he's a competitor and a veteran presence.  Larry Fitzgerald should have a fantastic season.  Not really sure about the running back situation....could be decent, could be terrible.  Very convinced about this defense however...they are loaded with playmakers and the addition of Tyronn Matheiu is great.  Unfortunately I see them losing a lot of close games.

4.  St. Louis Rams  4-12  (7-8-1 in 2012)

I'm gonna eliminate their great wins/tie against the 49ers last year for starters.  I don't like the switch for Tavon Austin instead of Stephen Jackson however.  Sam Bradford has been given a lot of opportunities to succeed in this system, and without a true running back behind him he better figure it out quick.  I just don't see it happening.  Not enough offense to keep up with teams this year.  Atlanta, Dallas, San Fran x2, Houston, Indy, and New Orleans.  All pretty high powered offenses that should breeze by the Rams this year.

personally think my Steelers will be WORSE than your projected 8-8. the team that used to "find ways to WIN" now seems to "find ways to LOSE" just like last year. the offensive line is still a mess and can't protect "Big Ben". the headline in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette some Monday morning is going to start with "The Late Ben Roethlisberger Was 31 Years Old....". will "fade 'em as a fav" all season starting with that -7 week 1 vs Titans
