 Ok, I guess I will do the bracket again, but I am out as far as the league.  Also, how does the number 1 draft pick work?  

- #1 #2 #3 #4
AFC East Jets Dolphins Patriots Bills
 



 

The...uh...Jets?

Welp, best of luck there, I guess.

Anyway we're close enough to the season for me to throw my utterly legit picks out there.

Lol, yeah I know, it is pretty awful.  However, the Jets and the Dolphins had a pretty spectacular free agency period and the patriots had a pretty terrible one (not to mention they will be minus Brady for four games).  So I had a really hard time with that division in particular...

in the end I went with the jets because I think their new head coach is going to have a huge impact and if there is a defense that will be better than my Seahawks, it will be the jets.

Do the Jets have a good QB now? Otherwise they are pretty much in the same boat as the Bills who also have a good defense, but an unproductive offense. Defense alone doesn't win division titles. It's hard to take the Dolphins seriously because for every step forward they have also taken one backwards; inconsistent for years, always end up around 8-8.

The Patriots' first four games are against the Steelers, Bills, Jaguars and Cowboys. If they go 2-2 over that stretch, Brady can still get the team to 14 wins for the season. And didn't the Patriots go 11-5 in a season when Brady was out due to an injury? I wouldn't get my hopes up that a Belicheck team implodes because one or the other player isn't available for a few games.

Nobody likes the Jets, except Kevin James. And King of Queens was a really awful sitcom. Shame on you, gergroy.

Geno has had some good reports this offseason, but even if he doesn't work out, they have Fitzpatrick who is at least serviceable....  Patriots also lost two of their biggest secondary pieces and didn't try to replace them at all... They lost a lot of players, it isn't just Brady being gone for four games that I think the Patriots will be down this year...

 

like I said, that division is tough as I see pretty much every team being equal this year unlike last year.  I can literally see a scenario where every team can come out on top or every team can finish at the bottom.  It will be a very rough division this year...



Vikings offense sure has improved. Steelers D? Not so much

Ah yes, Fitzpatrick. He has led many teams into the playoffs, right? Besides, at this point in time there are fewer NFL teams that he didn't play for than those who he played for.

The impressive thing about the Patriots is that they have repeatedly found ways to win games against the odds. They have the best coach in the league. That's just the way it is. They are going to beat the rest of the AFC East through experience.

Dallas special :) Honestly I have no idea. I know some teams that will suck, but the schedule, the suspensions, the rookies, the complete shakeup of so many teams, it's a mystery. Good luck to your favorite team!

Very possible, but if they don't and the jets pull off a miracle then I will get more points anybody else.  I'm sure there is some personal resentment that is probably factoring into my choices for that division as well...

The #3 seed plays against the #6 seed, you idiot. New England and Pittsburgh cannot both advance beyond the wild-card round.

The order of the NFC teams in the Divisional Playoffs is odd, but at least the outcome of the matchups is legit, so no real issue here.
