Worst to First

Postby Mookie4ever » Sun Sep 05, 2010 12:13 pm

The NFL is an odd league. Every year for the past 7 years one team (and twice two teams) has gone from last in their division to first.

Who will it be this year?

Vegas says that the Chiefs and Skins have the best shots.

I voted Jags. I know that they have to top the Colts and everybody's darkhorse Houston but I think that they have the best chance.

They were the best of the last place teams with a 7-9 record. With MJD they have a chance to win on any given Sunday. Plus I think that Peyton can't be successful without Marvin Harrison and Edge :-b

Voted Redskins. Lots of questions in there division no matter how strong it actually is.

Would vote Lions if Green Bay wasn't so damn good.

Jags have best player, but don't have a team.

Redskins have the best team, but every other team in that division is competitive and can win it.

Chiefs have a number of issues, but their weak division gives them a leg up.

Vegas odds to win division

Bills +2800
Browns +2000
Jags +1400
Chiefs +800
Skins +600
Lions +2200
Bucs +2800
Rams +2000

Skins and Chiefs are way ahead of the others. For the Chiefs to win something bad has to happen to Rivers and I have no faith in Washington. I think that the best odds are with the Browns at +2000 competing against the Ravens, Bengals and Steelers all of whom could implode.

tough call, but I think the KC has a lil better chance than the Jags. Too much competition for Jax, and SD is one Rivers injury away from beatable.
Skins have a good shot too, if McNabb can stay healthy and be effective. Very physical conference should lay him to waste, two vs Iggles could do it.
KC has running game, enough passing threat, once good OC in place and a not too stinky D to get on a roll in the shakiest division in the league.

You can group Mookie's info another way-

Bills +2800
Bucs +2800

Lions +2200
Browns +2000
Rams +2000

Jags +1400

Chiefs +800
Skins +600

I don't think TB's chance of winning their division is as bad as the Bills'- I'd say they have a better chance that the Rams- maybe +1800 or so. Kinda surprised the Jags are given such a good chance.

I voted the Chiefs. I don't necessarily think they are the best team of the bunch, but I think they have the path of least resistance. The Broncos look bad on paper, no Dumervil, possible hamstring tear at last check, and who was pretty darn mediocre when healthy anyways, and no Brandon Marshall. Sorry, but Jabar Gaffney the number 1 looks pretty bad, and if Moreno misses time at RB, how much faith does anyone have in Buckhalter? So that might be two bingo squares.

The Raiders look improved, plugging in Campbell at QB instead of Russell/Gradkowski is a huge ugrade. The receiving core looks pretty putrid, but Zach Miller should prove a nice receiving threat. The defense is a question mark, so the Chiefs have a shot at two wins in the division there as well, not a lock, but a shot.

That leaves the obvious class of the division, the SD Chargers. No V-Jax, McNeil holding out, and a rookie RB, albeit one I like a lot. Like just about every other team, one QB injury away from falling down numerous pegs. Even if healthy, and as the class of the division, the possibility remains the Chiefs could steal a game away from the Chargers.
