Default Re: Who is the best 9-7 football team?

I have to say Houston. The Jets are a good team, but if they have to put the game on Sanchize they might as well pack it up. A franchise QB is the most important player position on the team, and they just don't have it.

The Ravens are very weak against great passing attacks, and their offense isn't that good.

The Falcons we lucky to be 9-7 IMO.

I could go either way on the Stealers. They look like hot garbage one game, and the kings of the AFC the next. People complain about the Texans being a 1 half team, well the Stealers are an every other game team.

Default Re: Who is the best 9-7 football team?

Every single team has something missing. The Jets need more out of their head coach and the QB, but that's to be expected. The Ravens need more out of their passing game, not to mention a playmaker or two at DB. We need a kicker and the ability to finish. The Falcons need a couple things, I'd say they're the worst 9-7 team.

The Steelers....I'm not sure. They'll play elite one game, horribly the next.

I'll be a homer here and pick us.

Jets with Kris Jenkins beat the living crap out of us. Without Kris Jenkins...we could take them!

Probably Baltimore though. Defense has underachieved but can be stout, Offense can run the ball VERY well and the pass game is good, not great but good.

I'm shocked. I honestly thought the Falcons would runaway with this.

I haven't watched any of their games this year, so I really don't know. But I thought Michael Turner & Matt Ryan had health issues they needed to work out....

I thought they're outlook for 2010 was pretty good.

No disrespect, but I'm going with the Falcons on the basis that they play in the NFC South. You talk about all these teams being every other half or every other game, NFC South teams seem to be every other season.

Fortunately for the Falcons though, I think winning percentage wise, they're the best post-NFC South division champion ever since that division started playing musical chairs with their champs.

How does playing in the NFC South make them the best team?

The Jets play the Pats 2 times a year... that's a team that has won multiple SuperBowls.

The Ravens play The Steelers twice a year... that's a team that has won the most Super Bowls of any franchise in the history of the NFL.

The Steelers have to play the Raven's twice a year... that's a team that has won it all at least once (I really can't remember).

The Texans play arguably the most consistently best team in the league over the last decade twice a year.

The Falcons get to play the Tampa Bay Bucaneers who have won the Super Bowl, but they haven't looked like the Super Bowl Bucs for what? 10 years?

I don't think they've ever had a 2-in-a-row champ since the realignment.

I'd say Jets, but I expected more from Baltimore this year.

Default Re: Who is the best 9-7 football team?

I went with the Steelers because that is the team that I would LEAST like to face in the playoffs.

I think the Texans, Ravens, and Jets all make a good argument. The Jets are not the same team we faced week one, but they would be my last choice of playoff opponents for the Texans off of this list.

Ravens have been a bit of disappointment this year and I can't believe the Falcons got to 9-7 with all the injuries they have had this year.

Just my 2 cents

I'd also say the Ravens.

There 7 losses are:
Pitt
Cincy x2
GB
Indy
Minn
NE

And their average margin of defeat was just over 5.5 pts. Besides the loss to the Steelers, the Ravens losses were all to playoff teams.

Yeah, can't argue with that. Ravens are a damn good team, and I wouldn't be surprised if they win it all (although I'm pulling for the Minnesota Farves ).

The Raiders with Gradkowski would've won Sunday........I FREAKIN HATE THAT BUM/WASTE OF AIR RUSSELL.

HE IS 10X AS WORSE THAN DAVID CARR.

Seriously Raider fans cut ties....because that guy is literally the worst drafted QB in the modern NFL era.....OVER LEAF. (and I really mean that) The dude doesn't catch enough flack for how much he sucks. He is literally the worst pick at that position in the last 30 years (at least Akili Smith took himself out with a injury)......the sad thing is, is that Davis STILL WANTS TO HOLD ON TO HIM.
