Pick your Division winners
So, now that we have passed the halfway point of the season, it's time to forecast our Division winners. Who do you think it will be in each of the eight?
Maybe we can throw in some wild cards as well.
Here are mine to start things off.
West - looks pretty obvious at this point. Niners are rockin' it out on the West Coast.
South - Tough call in a three-way race. I'm going with the Falcons in a close one, possibly by tiebreaker.
East - The Redskins, Eagles and Cowboys all have too many fatal flaws, so that leaves the Giants on top, IMO.
North - Does anyone really doubt the Packers take it? Much as I hate to say it, no one will be catching them.
West - None of them are great, but all of them have a shot. I'm going with the Chiefs to win it again (as I told Singer in another thread) despite the blowout to the Dolphins at home. The Chiefs have always struggled against the Phish. Their divisional w/l record will be what decides it, I think, although the Raiders might still out-duel them. Chargers are done, and the Broncos can't ride Tebow very far.
South - While Houston looks like the cream here, I still think Tennessee may have a shot at this. I'm going to take a flyer on them.
East - All have been exposed, but I think the Jets take it. If the Bills don't lose confidence they might make a run for it. Patriots finish third regardless.
North - The Bengals are really the current #1 seed in the Conference? Hard to credit, but there it is. It won't last all the way, however, as the Ravens look to be coming on very strong. Baltimore wins it.
In the NFC, I think we'll be looking at the Saints almost certainly. The other one is harder to nail down. Sentimentally, I'm pulling for the Lions to beat out the Bucs, Bears, Eagles and Cowboys.
As for the AFC, I'll call for the Bengals and Texans to rise above the rest, although the second place teams in the East and West may have a shot. By my picks above, that would be the Bills and Raiders.
Now, your thoughts?
