Can you blame them with the kennel club of women you guys have in that neck of the woods, :lol: Hopefully you guys don't go to Houston this year. Jwise might get the wrong idea.

The Steelers are my early favorite with Bryant returning to the field but I think there will be at least one suprising team in the Super Bowl. Teams like the Buccaneers, Lions and Browns (!) picked up the best available FA´s and no top tier candidate (Broncos, Seahawks, Packers) got significantly better so far (don´t know about the Patriots though).

No homer post but I think the Giants could become a contending team if they can upgrade their lack up front.

It's not nearly as much of a thing as people made it out to be. Since like 2000, a few guys have gotten hurt. I think the most high profile one was when Vick broke his leg. There have been at least as many guys to go on and have a damn fine season.
I'm really feeling the Giants in the NFC and I'll pick the Patriots in the AFC every single year until further notice. It's just getting dumb not to.
I haven't already replied to this thread with a different answer, have I?

Yeah, I think the Madden curse has somewhat become a thing of the past. I've never been very superstitious, but it hasn't hit for a few years.

As far as early favorites for SB52...I have a very hard time not picking the Patriots to return. I see no reason why they shouldn't be as good or even better than they were last year, and I don't think the AFC will be any tougher than last year. NFC is a much more mixed bag. I could see 4 or 5 teams making it there.

I see the AFC as a two, possibly three horse race. Pittsburgh has the talent to play with New England, except the Patriots are so much better coached. If Pittsburgh's young defensive talent gels into something formidable, they are a threat.
Houston is also a threat if they find some QB play this year while maintaining high level of play at defense. Otherwise, I don't see any team that was decent last year adding any pieces that show them taking a next step. Does anyone else? KC drafted a QB for 2019 instead of someone who can have an impact this year. The Raiders added an old RB and a huge distraction with the move. Baltimore doesn't look ready for prime time. Neither do any of the other improving teams in the South. Miami will be worse. Denver is slipping and lost a truly great DC. The Bengals aren't bouncing back and who cares if they do?

Yeah, I see quite a few decent but not great teams in the AFC. The biggest threats to NE in my opinion by far are Pittsburgh and Oakland, but then again I thought Pittsburgh was winning it all last year and we all saw how that turned out. It's interesting that you bring Houston up, since they are one of my ultimate wild cards this year. I absolutely love Watson, and I think he could do wonders for that team, but I still reeeeeally don't see a run to the SB. KC, Baltimore, and Denver should all be okay, but I'm not buying in to any of them.

Tom Brady haters need to start to come to grips with him playing in yet another Super Bowl this year

They replaced a curse with a price tag. $80 for the G.O.A.T. version.

I'm amazed how many people are big on the Texans. I think the Texans this year may be what the Jaguars were last year. Tons of hype, then utter disappointment.

Watson is still a huge unknown as a rook. Who the heck is Tom Savage? lol

Yeah, I'd say there is definite potential to under-perform.

The thing is though, last year I thought the Jax hype was crazy and I just couldn't see them living up to it. The Houston hype sounds very similar but I can actually see them living up to it if they hand Watson the reigns right away. They're a stacked team who is just a step away.
