Re: AFC South .. that cake looks to be turning to mud
Titans are going to be made or broken offensively by CJ and the running game this year. Locker hasn't impressed much in PS and middle of the road defense make this look like a team that really did have a 9-7 season by smoke and mirrors last year. No one has also mentioned if Britt, who is already recovering from injury (and and PUP right now) will also have to deal with a any disciplinary action for his DUI this summer.
Jags do look more improved because Gabbert doesn't look so shell shocked this PS. We'll see what happens when teams are really scheming and throwing all sorts of wrinkles at him. Blackmon is going to help this offense, but you have to wonder at what point does MJD hold out hurt the timing with this offense? Defensively they're still good, this team COULD be tough but, it's going to depend on how Gabbert looks in regular season.
No one's anointing Luck as a HOF QB at this point much as it's simply impressive that he's actually living up to the hype. Also has to help having your college security blanket as your TE. Luck's going to have up and downs this year, but it's looking like they will be a lot more competitive this year than we expected.
The Texans are looking like easily the most complete team in this division and could get even better the next couple of weeks as some of the young pieces from the draft get acclimated to playing at this level. Even with these PS developments I would dare say anything less than a division crown is a disappointment.
