    Only people new to football claim this stuff.

    NFL seasons are as unpredictable as it gets. The Broncos could suck major ball this season. While the Browns could light it up. (alright, bad example)

    Nah, crazy stuff happens. Did anyone think the Vikes would go from 3-13 to 11-5 in the mighty NFC North with the Packers, Bears, and Lions (coming off of a 10-6 season)? The idea of the Browns making the playoff is a bit laughable, though. I mean, come on.. they're the doo doo Browns. (As I say this they will probably beat us out for a playoff spot via tie breaker) I love how unpredictable the NFL is.

    Dude you didn't answer my question name the last time that Peyton Manning didnt make the playoffs when he played a full season! In fact do the same with Tom Brady!

    But is he going to play an entire season? That's the million dollar question. In reality Peyton is a 37 year old QB who has had four neck surgeries. He is going to start declining rapidly, which could onset at anytime. In the NFL, even the healthiest of players in their prime are not safe.. ala Brady in 2008.

    So to answer your question, even if Manning plays an entire season, he has to maintain a high level of play, which will only be possible for so much longer.. Remember the first month of the 2012 season? He looked horrible. We'll be seeing that Peyton Manning again soon enough.. maybe not this season but soon. Tom Brady is right behind him, as the 3rd oldest active QB in the league. Chances are him and the Broncos will be alright for another year or two, but the clock is winding down very quickly on him.

    I still feel like Boldin was very clutch for the Ravens. I will be curious to see how they replace him.

    But they don't have Lewis to "touch him" and give him holy powers to be great.

    That's the plan although they have to replace Boldin's production. The defense was NFL history bad last year, so I can't see anything but improvement there. I think Cinci and Baltimore will compete for the division this year but you never know...

    Seems like every year we think we know and we don't know. Couple of bad breaks and 10 wins becomes 8...

    Look at Houston last year - they looked dominant and then a couple bad breaks and pfffft.

    Good luck in the draft ;)
