First of all, I'd like to say with training camp less than a week old, to have 12 threads active in the Bull Pen in the last 24 hours....Bravo. This place is hopping compared to the doldrums of June. May said doldrums never be seen again until mid-february. The Local Yokels on our afternoon sports talk show interviewed the play-by-play man for the Seahawks. This Chump was talking 9-7 and playoffs. And I realized the Texans and the AFC South (until the fall of the Titans, considered in contention for the toughest division of the AFC) would be matching up against the Pitiful NFC West. I find myself, for the first time ever, planning to watch how the rest of the teams in the Texans division match up against a particular division. True, the teams of the NFC West have been pretty sad of late. But the Cardinals are the early dark horse for NFL pundits and other funny sounding words for "people who think you should listen to them." And these teams have been pumping early first-round talent into the teams for a few years now. Which at times creates the posibility of dramatic improvement. Also, it seems like the regular posters to the site are pretty well informed on the current greatness of the Colts and the potential for greatness in the texans and Jags. Which, I believe, could make an interesting matchup between what could be the two most volatile divisions in all of the NFL. So I thought I'd put it out there, How do you think the Texans and the AFC South will fare agaisnt the NFC West? Will it be an fascinating clash between two divisons on the rise? Or will the AFC South tear through the NFC West like so much tisse paper? How will the Texans do? How about the Jags, Titans and Colts?
