As we get closer to the opening weekend of the 2012 NFL Season, it’s time for the so-called “experts”  to give us with their final preseason predictions and prognostications.  These “personalities” give us their deep thoughts on who will win each division, who will secure the 4 wild cards, and ultimately who will face off in [...]

Around The Division

Having just a little bit of time today for a post, I decided to highlight some news from around the division that may (or may not) have escaped your notice.

Look Who’s Picked To Win The AFC North

On Monday, Pete Prisco of CBS Sports reported his results after being given the difficult (and silly) task of predicting every NFL game for the 2012 season. We could hammer him for some of his picks. The Patriots go 16-0 again? Child, please. The Browns to go 1-15? I enjoy a good Browns-bashing as much [...]

I Love Being Right

A month ago, I was scorched by a burning river of Browns fans for saying that Greg Little disappointed and Colt McCoy had no weapons. The insults and expletives grunted into cyberspace by these Dawg-crazed nuts barked that the blame for the team’s meager passing game rested squarely and solely on Colt McCoy. He (called [...]

My look at the Browns last week raised a cacophony of howling and hissing from Browns fans. Today I am really going to poke the beehive by taking a look at the Steelers, because they aren’t going to like what I have to say at all. But if they are honest with themselves, they know [...]

Some of that venom was toxic enough to set the Cuyahoga River on fire… again. A few of them made interesting comments, while others proved that Cleveland [...]

A Closer Look At The Browns

The AFC North is always tough, and 2011 was no exception. All four teams were in the top 10 in overall defense. They made up half of the AFC playoff teams, going a combined 25-15 outside the division. Even the Browns were an almost respectable 4-6 outside the AFC North. 2012 should be similar. So [...]

Who Has The Advantage In The AFC North?

Despite going 9-7 last year and making the playoffs, the Bengals still finished third in the AFC North. But that will happen when you play in the toughest division in the AFC. At the risk of minor heresy, I was OK with a 3rd place finish for the Bengals this year. We have seen the [...]

Balance In AFC North Shifts A Little

Today, one fan base in the AFC North weeps while three shed no tears at all. News outlets are now confirming that Terrell Suggs has torn his Achilles tendon while playing basketball.  Suggs was the 2011 Defensive Player of the Year and has wreaked havoc across the AFC North for years.A torn Achilles is the same [...]
