    The AFC elites is starting to fall down like acorns off a tree.

    Sad thing, players like Brady and Merrimen has no business being on the field anyways, with their health condition the way they were. Hasn't these people learn anything after watching "Friday Night Lights" with Boobie Miles?

    Buffalo for AFCE

    Broncos for AFCW (not because of Merrimen though, but because Broncos are rising and Chargers was dropping.)

    lol ya it's impossible to think that a team that went 18-1 last year with the highest scoring offense of all time could win their division

    breaking news: they still have Randy Moss who will catch anything thrown his way, and Wes Welker, and a good o-line and a good running game, and a good defense, etc. they're not going 9-7. and there isn't a team in the East good enough to win more games than the Patriots

    well, considering the guy who is doing the qb'ing now hasn't started a game since high school, it is a little bit of a stretch

    not at all. all he has to do is not be the worst player on the field and they still win the division. there's too much talent on the team to let that happen

    sooo, hes proven in the past, if he has a subpar qb, he won't be effective

    lol he was subpar on the Raiders because the entire team was beyond unbelievably bad. Cassell will still at least have the ability to stand in the pocket for several minutes and get him the ball. this was proven this past week

    we'll see, things can change when teams start game planning for a certain qb

    I would take a Brady-less Patriots team over most other teams in the league when considering Super Bowl odds. They are still that good.

    Anyways, on topic, this isn't altogether unexpected.

    The Pats defense really isn't that good. Their offensive line is no where near the level it was at last year, and Moss has already proven time and again he won't play for subpar QBs

    I predict no more than 9 wins for the Pats this year
