    Breakout

    NFC...Vikings
    AFC...Browns

    Disappointment

    NFC...Gnats

    ...Hmmm, I notice a lot of us as having the Patriots as AFC disappointments. Not sure if that's wishful thinking or prophet but I like it :abq2::icon_toast::abq2:

    I presume wishful thinking

    NEP is still strong, but for Brady and Co. is losing the AFC championshipgame a disappointment.

    Okay, so who are my implosion teams for 2008?


    I am going with one "popular" choice, New York Giants in the NFC. They're in a brutal division, and they'll really miss Strahan, and even Shockey. NYG will miss the playoffs.


    My AFC pick isn't as obvious: The Cleveland Browns are getting way too much hype. Derek Anderson is the most overrated QB in the league, they played a cupcake schedule last year, got lucky that both Baltimore and Cincy had down seasons. Both of those teams will be better, Brownies will be really bad, 6-10 or worse.

    I don't see how the Bungles will finish ahead of the Steelers or even the Browns but anything is possible.
    IMO, they'll finish ahead of the Ravens by a game or two.

    A little bit of both. They lost some talent and we'll see how big of a part spygate played in they're success since 2001 but they're STILL the AFC team to beat until proven otherwise.

    Holy crap, check out Cleveland's schedule:


    DALLAS
    PITTSBURGH
    @Baltimore
    @Cincy
    NEW YORK GIANTS
    @Washington
    @Jacksonville
    BALTIMORE
    DENVER
    @Buffalo
    HOUSTON
    INDY
    @Tennessee
    @Philly
    CINCY
    @Pittsburgh


    I don't even see 6 wins in there. Brownies could be 5-11 or even 4-10. :icon_eek:


    MTL, where are you? Come in here and sniff the jocks of the Cleveland Browns like you've been doing for the last year or so.

    I think they are over rated.
