Default AFC South Ranking in 2005

Who and why do think will be the top & bottom of our division next year?

Colts 11-5 Still the team to beat in our division. They still have way too much offense for anyone in the division.

Texans 10-6 Continue to improve, with a good draft should get a Wildcard.

Jags 10-6 Solid team, but Texans get the tiebreaker. (we own them)

Titans 7-9 Should be competitive, but Rebuilding?

Colts 11-5 If Edge returns...Still an offensive powerhouse...I don't see any of the defenses in our division stopping them...

Jags 10-6 Nice D, but the lack of a good O keeps them out of the division lead...

Texans 9-7 We make a playoff push, but don't get in...

Titans 6-10 Two words, "Cap Hell"...

i actually like the sound of that, but *** good as that all sounds, i think we all saw that just cause a team looks easy doesnt mean you'll win ! So some of those i couldnt be so sure on, but i do see us having a fairly close record to what you said !

ok fiddy, i'm sure that you are aware how fast things can change, it just so happened this year the AFC dominated all around, i mean arizona had like 4 wins and was still in the hunt at the beginning of december for a NFC wild card. I can almost bet ya that the AFC will not be near as close next season, so WE CAN GET IN WITH 9 WINS !!!!!

i think my predictions are based on a team playing to the best of their ability everytime out, obviously teams sometimes dont bring their A game every time out, but this is totally based on a teams potential and hoping they can live up to it

The AFC could be stronger next year:
AFC East:
Pats are the Pats and the Bills had 9 wins and almost got 10 if they wouldnt of lost to the Steelers backups. The Jets got 10, too. So 3 teams with 10 win potential in the AFC East

AFC North:
Steelers own the division but the Ravens had 9 wins with no WR and the Bengals are steadly improving. One 10 win team and two teams with potential of 9 wins.

AFC West:
Chargers and Broncos had 10 wins and KC, if they get defense, could win 10 so there are 3 teams with 10 win ability in the West.

AFC South:
Colts own it. Jags chocked down the stretch or they could of had 10. 3 teams with 10 win ability.


Not saying that every team will win 10 games of course, but there are 10 or 11 teams with 10 win ability in the AFC. We need 10 wins to get in the playoffs.

Yes I do. We just need to get 10 wins, which we are capable of doing. Improved by 1 from first to second year. Improved by 2 between second and third year. We will improve by 3 between third and fourth year.

I really doubt that the Jags will get 10 wins. Think of them in 04 as the 03 Cowboys. Now think of them in 05 as the 04 Cowboys.

Sigh. the thought of J-ville, Dallas, and the tacks all under .500 next year brings a smile to my face.

Why did you put an L for the Bills? I mean we beat them (in Buffalo) in our 2nd year, and our team this year was better and will be getting better next year. Plus if you look at the schedule they had this year they only beat 2 teams that had winning records and the other 7 teams were at .500 or less.They had a very easy schedule this year. So it would be 12-4 for the Texans!!!

either that or 10-6 because you shouldn't just assume the Seahawks and Rams are a W.

But either way next year is our year!

Doesn't matter how much they improve if they keep Bledsoe because hes the reason they suck. And with the schedule they have for '05 it looks like they'll b pickin early in the '06 draft theres only playing bout 3 or 4 teams who might have losing records.

dude a lot of things are different since then, including the fact that the bill have Willis McGahee now, things can change in 2 years, i would love to see the texans win, and it was hard for me to say they would lose to the bills, it just looks like a game the texans might not win...thats all
