I am going to be very interested to see what team emerges from the AFC-West. The division features the perennial favorite Charges, the underachieving Broncos, and two of the leagues bottom feeders in the Chiefs and Raiders. I personally won't care to watch the Chiefs or Chargers, and I wouldn't care about the Broncos if Tebow weren't drafted by them. I am very much interested however in the Oakland Raiders. Since loosing in the Superbowl what seems like eons ago to Tampa Bay, the team has done nothing. However, upon replacing the overweight lethargic Russel, with a true talent in Campbell, the team could surprise some people. Vegas clearly doesn't like the Raiders to do much, as they have them at 100-1 to win it all, but I think with some of their young talent at the skill positions, they could creep up on some teams.


The Washington Redskins are another team that I can't wait to watch. They got rid of the aforementioned Campbell, and replaced him with a proven winner in McNabb. Add in the fact that they have one of the games great coaches making his comeback in Mike Shanahan, and I think this team may be able to eek out enough close wins in a stacked NFC East. That Division is like the AL East of Baseball. I could honestly see any team winning, and I will personally be pulling for the Redskins.


There have been a lot of off the field events in the NFL this off-season, and perhaps no team has been hit harder than the Pittsburgh Steelers. First they got rid of their star receiver in Santonio Holmes because of his repeated problems off the field. It culminated with him violating the leagues substance abuse policy, and the higher-ups in Steeler camp thought they needed to make a change. They traded him to the now stacked Jets for a bag of peanuts, (a fifth round draft pick), in an effort to clean up their image. Little did they know, their starting quarterback would yet again be accused of rape. The guy looks like such a scumbag, and the Steelers will definitely be a hated team in seasons to come.





One last team to watch is the San Francisco 49ers. Some may call me a homer, but if this team does not win the division this year, they never will. The division is utter trash; you could put me at QB and we'd have a fighting chance. All they have to do is hand the ball off to Frank Gore and play some defense. If he gets hurt, I may be on suicide watch. Just take a look at it, the Cardinals who have owned that division the last few years, just lost their all world QB due to old age. The Rams are the worst team in the NFL, (worse than the Lions). The last team, the Seahawks, I would put in the bottom 5 teams in the NFL. If someone wants to make some quick money, put it all on Red.
