I think it's between the Pats and Ravens in the AFC. The NFC is a lot harder to predict.

Dont see it with the Ravens... lost a ton on defense and putting a lot of faith in Jackson.

I like the Chargers, Pat's, Chiefs in the AFC. Bears, Eagles, Rams in the NFC

I'm not sold on the Eagles or Rams this year. I think the Bears probably have the best shot in the NFC if Trubisky can take a step forward and the double-doink hasn't completely melted Nagy's brain.

This year is tough as I do expect one or more of these ageless star QB's to finally succumb to father time. I know the Saints are heavy favorites but I can't ignore the decline of Brees in the 2nd half of the season. I think this will be his last season. I think the end may be near for Brady as well. For that reason I'm going to stick with teams sporting younger QB's and say Chiefs vs Rams but really this year could go a lot of ways.

Bills releasing McCoy. I guess at 31 he doesn't have access to the fountain of youth a 32 Andrew Harris has ha ha ha.

The Texans org is in complete dissaray. What a joke, I can't wait until O'Brien is fired.

They have wasted a generational player in Watt and they have what I think is an elite quarterback in Watson. I don’t really think trading Clowney is so awful, it’s more about how the team is built.

While I am with you that O’Brien needs to go, the real problem is higher up unfortunately.

At least we can't blame the GM on this one!

I'm ok with trading Clowney as well, but we've got nothing back for him. I can't see why we wouldn't just let him sit out rather then trade for nothing.

Clowney was our chance to address our Oline issues, either directly or by picking up assets that can be traded for help. Now it will be another season of watching Watson scramble and hoping he survives the beating he'll take.

Amazing to me that John Schneider has never been GM of the year but that scrub in Indy that was just smart enough to not fata up and draft Andrew Luck is some kind of pro personnel messiah. Smh.

The problem is higher up? O'Brien has got the last two GM's fired. He is the higher up.

@RapSheet:
Blockbuster: The #Dolphins are trading franchise LT Laremy Tunsil and WR Kenny Stills to the #Texans in exchange for a huge package of picks, including a first-rounder, sources tell me, @MikeGarafolo, and @TomPelissero. The moves are contingent on players passing physicals.

there were rumours they were trying to trade Clowney + to Miami to get Tunsil. This one is extremely steep, but if he can protect Watson it might be worth it.

Seems like an overpayment for the Texans but it's probably worth it for them if he can play well for them. Not sure what's going in Miami as one day they are trying to bring in Clowney and the next they are trading their franchise LT. Not exactly sure why the Dolphins would want to give up a young LT that was just hitting his stride. I get that they are rebuilding but now they have to find a LT to protect the shiney new QB they will pick 1st overall in April.
