Speeder's AFC North



The Bengals will indeed have a tough time returning to their 2005 form. I don’t think Carson will be back 100%, and the other two QB’s on their roster are Anthony Wright and Doug Johnson, unless they would play Reggie. The rest of the offense is solid, but Palmer was clearly the heart of it and without him….they fail. They also tie for the toughest schedule this year. The D will lose Odell Thurman due to suspension and be weaker because of it.

The Browns had a lot of potential offensively until they lost LeCharles Bentley to injury, and Braylon Edwards(thanx Mike) had a slower than expected recovery. The Browns have a surprisingly talented defense: Brian Russell, Willie McGinest, Andra Davis, Ted Washington, and Kamerion Wimbley. Don’t ever count out the Bulldawg! I think Cleveland will improve off of their 6-10 record.

The Ravens are my favorite to win this division. They are stacked at the skill position: Steve McNair, Mike Anderson, Jamal Lewis, Mark Clayton, Derrick Mason, and Todd Heap. Finally the Ravens have a solid QB and if McNair threw for 3100 yds. And 16 TD’s with those scrubs in Tennessee, he should be fine in Baltimore. The D is stacked!!!! Dan Cody, Trevor Pryce, Terrell Suggs, Haloti Ngata, Buddy Lee, Ray Lewis, Adalius Thomas, Chris McCalister, Samari Rolle, and Ed Reed. JEEZ!!!!!!!!! With two big bodies in front of him again, expect the early 2000’s Ray that was scary.

Now for the Steelers. The defending Super Bowl champs will have the 5th toughest schedule. Their running game shouldn’t miss a beat if Duce Staley is healthy. The passing game will be hurt by the loss of Randle El and addition of Santurdio, cuz he’s weak. Although they won the SB last year, they really weren’t that dominate. They may even struggle to make the play-offs.

Predictions for AFC North:
1. Baltimore Ravens
2. Pittsburgh Steelers
3. Cleveland Browns
4. Cincinnati Bengals
