Tommy, I'm no Norv Turner fan myself, but consider this....it is extremely likely that the Lightning Bolts go 6-0 vs. the rest of the division this year. All they would have to do then is go 6-4 the rest of the way to top their future.
Matty, the Browns' schedule is absolutely brutal, I agree. Wouldn't be suprised at all to see the winner of the AFC North go 9-7....10-6 is a guarantee to get you that division.
I strongly disagree with the Chargers. In my opinion guys like Norv Tuner and Wade Phillips start putting their stamp on teams in their second season. That's not a good thing. If you take under Dallas and SD win totals, I will virtually guarantee a split. There is no sport where coaching plays more of a factor than the NFL and both of those guys are jokers. Bum Jr. has never won a playoff game and the Chargers stumbled through most of last season, despite being vastly superior in talent to their opposition most weeks. Plus, I was in that locker room after the playoff loss to NE asking players about LT. I got a couple of things off the record that I will not forget this year when the Chargers are a heavy favorite. Good post, I would just take under in SD and over Denver. personally
Good stuff Lenny - I would love to see the Browns do well, but I think the public is too high on them this year, and we could see them taking a step back with a tough schedule. I hope I'm wrong though.
