A couple caveats: I’m fine with my NFC standings, but my AFC picks trail off pretty quick after Houston, New England, and Pittsburgh. I hesitate about Baltimore without Suggs, and the AFC West is a crapshoot, but not every playoff team has to be a *good* playoff team, so the wild cards and the AFC West winner are what they are. (You wanna pick, say, Tennessee, Cincinnati and Denver, I won’t say boo.)

"It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone." --- Bart Giamatti, on baseball
AFC 1. New England. 2. Houston. 3. Pittsburgh 4. Broncos. 5. Cincinnati 6. Buffalo.
I think the Ravens have a lot of questions and enough for the Bengals to make the move. Pittsburgh has at worst a 10-6 record at best 14-2. Not as good as the 18-0, I think the Pats will go. I love Houston last year til bad luck run wild on their asses. I would make them my odds on favorite. And I will take a 50% Peyton over any of the other QBs in that division.
1st Round Pitt over Buffalo. Broncos over Cincy
Divisional Houston over Pitt Broncos over Pats
Houston over Broncos
NFC 1. Green Bay 2. Atlanta 3. Giants 4. 49ers. 5. Eagles 6. Chicago
I think the Packers are under the radar for the most part. I like the Falcons with the Saints being terrible on defense. I love Drew Brees, but his arm is going to fall off my week 10. The Giants are still a good team and I think the Eagles are a bit overrated. There is no way the Niners lose that division.
1st Round 49ers over Bears Giants over Eagles
Divisional Atlanta over Giants Packers over 49ers
NFC Championship Packers over Atlanta
Super Bowl Packers over Houston
I'd rather see my Steelers make a run, but no O-line and everyone looking old is not a good sign.

As usual, based purely on the teams I love winning and the teams I hate losing (except the Jets, who are just awful). Yes, I'm aware my standings predictions are literally impossible. Bite me, mathematics.

I'm really enthralled with this story. Partly because as a wrestling fan I've heard similar stories for years about guys like JBL. Also there is the whole dynamic where a bunch of guys see this happening and nobody tries to stop it.
