Damn it, bjj. I never thought of that angle. I was thinking 30 million tied up in a knucklehead wr and rb, a mental block when it comes to the Patriots, a qb who is half checked out, a division rival who's had their number for the last three or four years and a coach who is starting to be scrutinized. That's how I want to see things, but now you have me paranoid.

anyone think that the Steelers won't win the division this year?

I thought they were good before they got Joe Haden, so that only makes them better I assume. Anyone know why the Browns let Haden go?

The two Browns fans I know both said the same thing... salary dump along with his history of not being able to stay healthy. One of them also said it gives the Browns cap space to cut Brock Lobster and eat his salary. Not sure about that one but I suppose there is a little logic there.

Ravens fan says they won't... I think it comes down to the wire between Ravens/Steelers like almost every other year. Ravens defense will be top 5 without question, the offense is all up to inconsistent Joe Flacco. He has better options this year with Woodhead, Macklin and healthy tight ends.

I think Haden is overrated but Steelers offense will be top notch again, they have too many weapons. Ravens added a bunch of CBs and safeties that can match up with Steelers so we will see.

Steelers run away with the division this year. Hayden is a huge upgrade for their putrid defense.

I'm even starting to feel bad for the Browns now. They just can't ever catch a break. Myles Garrett out for about 7 weeks now. I think this team is jinxed.
