Playoffs? Who's goin to the playoffs in 2011?

This is an update kind of due to recent moves lately.

AFC East:Patriots-Getting Chad and Ellis to me improves their football team. They are better than the Jets.
AFC North:Steelers-They keep proving the doubters wrong and they'll do it again in 2011.
AFC South:Colts-I know I stated on some occassions that they will miss the playoffs. The prediction was made simply because 5 new teams had to get in. At the time, I thought Jets were the better team. Now I feel they have the best chance to get in 2011.
AFC West:Chargers-Raiders got worse, Broncos still suck, and Chargers are gonna be one of them new 5 football teams to make the playoffs in 2011.
AFC Wildcard #5:Ravens-Got respect for the Ravens. No doubt they will be in the playoffs in 2011.
AFC Wildcard #6:Texans-everyones darkhorse, but I didn't pick them last year. I liked the moves they made this offseason and I believe they can finally get to the postseason. Possibly a division title.

NFC East:Eagles-I suspect slow start, but I feel they will finish strong and make the playoffs.
NFC North:Packers-1st division crown since Rodgers has taken over.
NFC South:Saints-I think I have over-rated this football team a bit after their draft. They may win the division. I like the Bucs too.
NFC West:Rams-Gotta love Bradford. Kinda shocked by the lack of moves in FA for weak wr position. I think they can still get the job done o. 49ers will surprise some folks. Watch out!!
NFC Wildcard #5:Cowboys-I say 10 or 11 wins with a playoff berth. Cowboys>Giants
NFC Wildcard #6:Bucs-I wouldn't be shocked if this team wins the division this year. They are under the radar. 10-13 wins possibly.

Pre FA 'Who's goin to the playoffs?' thread

The reason pre FA is in the title: NFL has yet to have free agency. These predictions are before anybody makes that big move to help their team get to the playoffs. I know haters will join on here and say I was wrong after A team made the playoffs after getting a top free agent to help them get there. This is my pre free agency "Who's goin to the playoffs" thread. All haters, critics, friends, and fans are welcome.

The question everyone asks during the off-season is "who is goin to the playoffs." That is why I'm here folks.....to give you the answers. So plz when you're done reading my predictions you can leave a comment, give us your predictions, and enjoy my art. Thank you!!

The better question is "who is not making the playoffs?"
AFC
Bills-HAHA! This may be a shocker to some, but I have Bills finishing 3rd in the AFC East. Of course, they arn't making the playoffs.
Dolphins-Their offense was through the running game. 2 FAs could not return. I don't like Dolphins chances.
Titans-rebuilding mode along with the fact other three teams in division had better drafts in my opinion.
Texans-everyone's beloved darkhorse will again fail to get to the postseason.
Jaguars-You proved me wrong last year, but until you beat the Colts to win the division.....I don't see it happening.
Broncos-I'm hearing chants "Tebow" to end the season. Unfortunately, it won't be in the playoffs.
Raiders-I have them finishing last in their division.
Chiefs-I was happy for the team's success last season. I figure SD will find a way to get back on track to the playoffs.
Bengals-too many questions with the team along with Browns being a better football team.
Browns-a year or 2 away from taking Ravens spot.

NFC
Skins-Big Al making too much dough along with McNabb wanting out. Too many question marks.
Eagles-Teams figured out how to defend Vick. The team will finish 3rd.
Falcons-most over-rated team in the league last year. Gave up too much to get Jones.
Panthers-Could get the number 1 pick next year.
Seahawks-I was shocked they won the division. Division won't be that bad next year.
Cardinals-this team along with 49ers are most of the reason I put pre FA in the title. A quarterback addition could get a division title.
49ers-read Cardinals.
Vikings-Ponder isn't enough. Rice may be gone as well along with Pat Williams.
Bears-prove me wrong
Lions-Have them finishing 2nd......just missed. Next year for sure.

"Who is making the playoffs?"
AFC
Patriots-No one beats them at home.....during the regular season.
Steelers-doubters proved wrong last year. This year will be the same. Only difference.....Super Bowl belongs to Pittsburgh! #7!
Colts-They make the playoffs, I believe 11 straight x.
Chargers-depends on V-Jax return or replacement.
Jets-Didn't make AFC championship 2 straight years for nothing.
Ravens-How far they go depends on their run game.

NFC
Cowboys-4th place schedule along with good draft.
Packers-unless serious injury........
Saints-After that draft....how can you bet against them?
Rams-Shoulda won the division last year.
Giants-D-Jax ain't gonna get that lucky....again.
Bucs-Solid draft......team is only gonna get better.

Surprised??SurprisedDon't be..........STAY JEALOUS!!Cool

Pre FA NFL division winner predictions

AFC East: Patriots-forget all the hype. The team is probably the best when it comes to wins in the regular season. Jets....prove me wrong!

AFC North: Steelers-critics were wrong last go around. This time won't be any different.

AFC South: Colts-Can't bet against them. Made the playoffs 11x straight I believe. Prove me wrong Jags and 5th year darkhorse(laughing) Texans.

AFC West: Bolts-I doubt Chiefs can repeat. Broncos and Raiders just arn't good enough. Bolts are gonna gets their stats and in this case victories as well.

NFC East: Cowboys-getting Romo back with a pretty solid draft. I expect them or Giants to win the division. Either way both are goin to the playoffs.

NFC North: Packers-wins division for the first time in the era of Rodgers.

NFC South: Saints-Brees will have a running game to lead him back to the Super Bowl.

NFC West: Rams-shoulda won it last year. This year they should be able to get the job done.

As you can see I made it nice and easy for ya. I put the division in bold lettering and underlined the team name. Surprised??SurprisedDon't be.......STAY JEALOUS!!Cool

Ravens vs Steelers divisional playoff preview

Ravens vs Steelers......Steelers vs Ravens.......how can I describe this? Intense, blood hungry, smashmouth, best rivalry in football game!! Two of the top 3 football teams in the NFL today!! They will battle in Pittsburgh on Heinz Field. I along with everyone are ready for this football game. We always are when we see that matchup coming. This will be an emotional football game for both teams. Both battling to be the absolute best. PERIOD!! That Manning/Brady rivalry doesn't thrill me as much as the football games I have saw between the Ravens and the Steelers. They've had some classics.

Going into the football game the Ravens blew out the Chiefs. I'm somewhat surprised by it and some way I'm not as well. I didn't see that me turnovers happening. The Ravens are ready to play. They looked like a whole different football team when they were at Arrowhead. I was rooting for the Chiefs and it was hard to watch. Chiefs were one of the best at not giving up the football. Obviously the reason is because they didn't face a football team like the Ravens. They looked like they were making a statement. A statement to all football teams and that is don't sleep on them. They are no pushover by any means. The game against Pittsburgh Saturday may be the best matchup yet. Both teams ended the season with identical records. Steelers won the division due to tiebreaker of division record.

Pittsburgh Steelers ended the season with a blowout win over the Cleveland Browns. At half time the game was over. Pittsburgh made a bit of a statement as well. They clinched the division and home field. Much needed bye week for Pittsburgh to get healthy. No word yet if Aaron Smith will be playing in the ball game. I figure Polamalu will be playing in the football game. In any case both teams last wins were statements. Both teams looked their best vs their opponents. It will for sure be the game of the week.

As a Steelers fan of course I'm picking Pittsburgh. I think they are better defensively and offensively. The keys to victory for Pittsburgh is as follows: Defense don't allow Ravens to have a ground game. If they do that than they will do ok as long as they don't give them free yards meaning penalties. I think the defense can handle Flacco. Ravens side: Be in Roethlisberger's face all game long. Figure their D can handle the rush game unfortunately. Offensively the Steelers would like to have an effective rushing game. Protect Roethlisberger and give him time to throw the football. Do that than I'm certain the Steelers will win the football game. Ravens offensively....running game wouldn't hurt vs the Steelers. If they get a running game and win the battle of time of possession that will give them their best chance to win the football game.

Again I'm picking the Steelers in this one. Should be a classic. Surprised??SurprisedDon't be........STAY JEALOUS!!Cool

Baltimore vs KC wildcard playoff preview

Kansas City Chiefs is the surprise team of the year. Of course it is an opinion. KC as we all know is led by the running game. Their duo of Thomas Jones and Charles. Both have had great seasons. Both have proved a lot especially Jones to the Jets. Some believed Jones was a product of the Jets offensive line. Obviously that is false. Jets are struggling without him this year.

Matt Cassel and Bowe have been hitting strides this season. Well at least to end their season. First half wasn't too pretty. Big win over the Chargers to open was great. Special teams is also good for the Chiefs. Their offense will be the factor in this football game. Can their ground game do well vs the Baltimore Ravens? Browns did it earlier in the season, but didn't do it the 2nd time around. I think their is a chance. This football game in my opinion will be closer than one would think. Flacco didn't have that breakout season everyone predicted him to have. He is definately the future of the franchise though. They arn't a pass first football team. If the Chiefs can control the run I think they have a good chance to win this football game.

This will be a low scoring football game. Not expecting more than 20 points by either team. Could be wrong, but I expect both offenses to struggle in the passing game. I'm expecting an INT thrown by both quarterbacks. Hint:Ed Reed will catch one. LOL! At least that is what I expect. Defenses to have a great day. In the end Baltimore will win this football game by 3-10 points. No more than 10. Ravens defense struggles in the 4th. That is something to watch for. Surprised??SurprisedDon't be.....STAY JEALOUS!!Cool

KC wins AFC West title

All I gotta give is a congrats here. It is well deserve and I am proud of the Chiefs. Getting the coaching staff to shift this team to a success from a traditional 4-12 record. It at least felt that way.

It is nice to see new teams in the playoffs other than same old teams such as the Chargers. Nice to see them lose to be honest. I never thought they were a top 5 team in the NFL, but some people thought otherwise. I didn't believe the Chargers wouldn't be in the playoffs this year oh which is good. Dwayne Bowe has played great as a receiver this year. Cassel improved his game. Running game is what it is all about. Jones and Charles. They both played great seasons. Congrats to their keys on offense.

Congrats on a great year.

Wildcard spot predictions.......

I have been thinking about the wildcard spots. I already have predicted the division winners. Now the wildcard spots are even tougher. Some folks disagree with me. I just wanted to see what everyone elses wildcard predicitons this year. I give the two wildcard spots to........One to the AFC North team and an AFC East team.

AFC West is simply the weakest division in the AFC so it is obvious they are not gonna have a wildcard team.

AFC South is a pretty good division, but with Texans having the toughest schedule in the NFL I don't think they can get it done this year. As for the Titans I don't believe CJ will have another stellar season as he did last year. He is their offense. As for the Colts, I believe the Colts will take the division again this year.

AFC East has in some folks opinion three great playoff caliber teams. I don't see the Dolphins a lot better than last years football team. Marshall is gonna be a bust. Brown is gonna get injured.....again. I don't see it. The Pats will take the division again. At least I believe so. As for the Jets they will take the wildcard spot. Great defense with some problems with chemistry which is the reason I believe they will not take the division. Contract issues with Revis isn't helping the situation either. Let's see if they can get it done without the Colts laying down for them.

AFC North is the best division in the NFL. No question about it.

Bengals made some decent acquistions, but I don't see them getting lucky again this season. They won't be making the playoffs. I don't believe in all the hype. T.O. doesn't make a team that great. If he did than wouldn't a team signed him before the end of July. Antonio Bryant is terrible!! Why do you think they went out and got T.O. They do have weapons as do other teams. Carson Palmer and the passing game isn't the reason they were successful last year nor this year. It will be because of the running game and the defense of the Bengals.

Ravens will be taking the last wildcard spot. Actually they will take the 5th spot because I think they will finish better than the Jets. They have a great football team. I respect that football team as well. Added some weapons and defense is always solid. Ray Rice is gonna be the best running back in the league at the end of the year. That is my prediction if you go by numbers.

As for the Steelers of course they will be winning the division and win the superbowl once again. Surprised??SurprisedDon't be.....STAY JEALOUS!!Cool
