Phil's AFC South

The AFC South has been dominated by the Colts for some time now. Is it time for Indianapolis to be dethroned? Keep readin' to find out.

Indianapolis Colts
The Colts lost all-word Runningback Edgerrin James via free agency, but his shoes will be filled just fine. Not by Joseph Addai either! It also helps that the Colts are still a few steps ahead of the rest of the division. The o-line is still in tact, the receivers are back and they have Dwight Freeney. In my opinion, Freeney is lightyears ahead of the league at his position. If, excuse me, when Dom Rhodes rushes for over 1,000 yards and Manning doesn't miss a beat, this offense will have the Colts cruising into the post season. The only concern will be overcoming there devastating loss in the playoffs.

Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jaguars did have a pretty easy schedule last year, so that may have been a reason they finished 12-4. Another reason may be for the fact that they have one of the best defensive lines in the league. Marcus Stroud and John Henderson are both pro-bowl calibur players, and we all know that games are won in the trenches. They don't have anybody scary on offense, unless you're Dexter Reid. ooooooohhhhhh. That hurt. Another positive for the Jags, is that if you hurt their QB, then they'll only improve.

Tennessee Titans
When Billy Volek can't get the job done Vince Young will come in and showcase his talent. If he's even half as good as he was at Texas, then expect them to contend for 2nd place in the division. Jeff Fisher is finally under the heat, and if they don't improve drastically, I wouldn't be surprised if he gets fired.

Houston Texans
Sadly, even Mario Williams can't save the season. The Texans still have a long way to go, and even though I have defended David Carr before, this is a do or die year for him. The front office hasn't done much to help him and they have had the worst o-line in the league forever. They have some experience on defense, but I wouldn't be surprised if they made a run for third place in the division.

Here's how I see it:

Indianapolis Colts: 13-3
Jacksonville Jaguars: 10-6
Tennessee Titans: 6-10
Houston Texans: 4-12

I do have to disagree on two points. first, Volek is capable of leading, he just isn't on VY's level but then who is? I see Titans QB situation kind of like Bengals of 2 years ago when Palmer waited behind Kitna. Kitna got the job done, the Bengals just had too much invested in Carson to let him sit. I do think Vince will get on the field before the year is up, then look for Volek to be shipped to another team where he could start. second, I disagree with you that the Texans front office did not do anything to help David Carr. Read my AFC South preview and you will see what I mean.
