I agree with Metroid...Pittsburgh is strong on both sides of the field, Baltimore can still be a force on defense, and Cinci and Cleveland can be offensive juggernauts when everyone is healthy and doing their job.

No way. The cowboys would be dumb to get rid of both Jones and MBIII, aka their entire run game, just to put their running hopes on a rookie. TO and 85 on the same team would be whoa! But pointless if there's no running game to take pressure off defending against the pass.

OK, well when someone says toughest usually the argument being made is one of the best.

Baltimore, Cleveland and Cincy are all only decent on one side of the ball. Pittsburgh is good on both sides but I think they take a step back from where they were even last year. It's actually a pretty weak division in my mind.
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!

QFT.

Marvin doesn't want to set a precedent of honoring trade requests that are made through the media. The team has the leverage here because CJ won't get paid if he decides to sit out, and he won't advance a year on his contract, so he will find himself in the same position next year. If CJ plays, he has to continue to play at a high level or there won't be a market for his services anymore.
