For some reason, I'm even more excited about the NFL this year. Maybe it's because the Chiefs should be a playoff team, I don't know. Just looking across the league, it seems like there's something to watch for with every team. I thought I would go team by team with my thoughts.
Patriots - With Tom Brady and good coaching, this team is always going to be a Super Bowl contender. Can they survive four games without Brady?
Bills - Tyrod Taylor, McCoy, Watkins...could the Bills actually be exciting? They were 8-8 last year, is this a wild card team?
Dolphins - Will Tannehill continue to be mediocre or will ever break out?
Jets - This seems like a clusterfuck. Will they look competent at all?
Bengals - They were good last year but stumbled in the playoffs. Are they actually good or was last year a fluke?
Steelers - They've been under the radar for a little while, but seem capable of manufacturing a deep playoff run. Will they?
Ravens - Even more under the radar, but also have a history of bouncing back. Could they surprise people?
Browns - They're building something slowly. I doubt it, but could RG3 return to former success? What about Gordon?
Texans - Will Osweiler actually be good and give this team the thing they were missing?
Colts - Andrew Luck has got to turn into a top tier quarterback, right...is this the year it comes together?
Jaguars - They're still a couple years away right?
Titans - Is Mariota a bust or a rising star?
Broncos - The returning Champs turn to an inexperienced quarterback. If he's terrible, how long before the defense loses faith?
Chiefs - Poised to take the division...can they execute? Can they get a playoff bye?
Raiders - With Carr, they're going to be good some day. Will they contend this year?
Chargers - How many great years does Rivers have in him?
Cowboys - Is Dak the future? How good can Dak, Dez and Zeke be this year?
Giants - Manning to Beckham. That seems fun.
Eagles - Seems like a rebuild is underway.
Washington - Another year of Kirk Cousins, will we like that?
Vikings - What could have been an up and coming team looks like a lost season.
Packers - Every year with Aaron Rodgers, they can be a Super Bowl contender. Yet he only has 1 SB appearance. Will he get back there?
Bears - How good is Langford? Still, yikes.
Lions - Never won a playoff game with Megatron. How good can they be without him?
Saints - Will Brees win the passing crown on a losing team again?
Bucs - Is Winston going to turn into a Pro Bowl QB?
Falcons - How much longer can Julio Jones be a dominant WR?
Panthers - Can they return to the Super Bowl?
Seahawks - Can they return to the Super Bowl?
Cardinals - They went 13-3, but Palmer and Fitz are getting old. Do they have one more playoff run in them?
49ers - They're bad, right?
Rams - How good is Gurley? What's it like to finally have a team back in LA?
