It's way too early to tell I'd say...

Free Agency hasn't even ended, and the Draft is still a month away.

Get back to me after Draft time and I could give you a preliminary guess...

I'm thinking Arizona will make some noise after a disppointing season. I'm not sure about playoffs but they will be close. I also think the 49er's are going to take their division.

I say Arizona Cardinals. That's what I say every year
First the federal government borrowed money; then gave the money to Bank of America; then I borrowed some of that money from Bank of America and gave it to the federal government; then the federal government gave the money back to Bank of America.

:lol:

I think we've all been saying that for the past 3-4 years.

Until they fix that line, I'm not banking on them.

No one ever suspects the Butterfly!

Seriously though, I have no clue. I need to wait until the end of the Draft.

Buffalo will be a strong contender for the Wild Card this upcoming season and will probably end up being the second-best team in the division by a good margin.

If the Niners trade up for CJ (could happen)...ah, forget it.

Spikes isn't really a huge loss. McGahee looks like he can easily be replaced. Nate Clements is the biggest loss...

However, I think Losman and Evans will make huge improvements, and their pass rush should be as good as ever...

The Broncos.. If Cutler gets comfortable with the system he has Rod Smith, Javon Walker and now Brandon Stokley. Travis Henry is gauranteed to be a 1000 yard + rusher and now with Bly and Champ on opposite sides of the field, all we need is a pass rusher.

their offense still have some holes. i doubt losman and evans can carry the team to the playoffs. its too hard, AFC east is pretty hard division. patriots is going to win the division and jets is probably going back to playoffs again.

I think Dallas is flying under the radar.

Are you kidding me? The moment training camp opens, we are gonna go through TO drama every day, and Sean Salisbury will be sitting there with a straight face going: "If they get TO situation under control, I really see them making a run at the Super Bowl."

I think San Deigo might have a very good season (once again), and now with a new coach, they might see more than just an early playoff exit.

Also, if Chris Simms can stay healthy all year, and a quality player (likely Calvin Johnson) from the draft, as well as the addition of June, look for Tampa Bay to improve as well.

Tampa's D is getting old. They better start thinking about adding young talent.
