Fantasy Drafts are happening. OTA's ended, training camp is opening and free agents are wondering if they are going to get signed or not. This thread will be just like the career of an NFL player. It starts, it has a peak, which might not get very high or else it will go far, and it ends. All fans are optimistic about their teams and think they can make the Super Bowl, in reality only 2 teams will and only 1 will hoist the Lombardi trophy at the end of the night.

So AG who are your favorite teams, your favorite teams to make the playoffs and win the SB and who do you think will win the end of season awards, including the Most Voluble Player, handed out to one Lucky, Hard Working member of one of the 32 teams... Discussion starts now!

I'm really hoping that the Cardinals can pick it up this year and take the division. (Nobody but me thinks that will happen, but it's nice to have a dream to dream at night.) They acquired Carson Palmer, which I believe will make a vast improvement to the offense. Him, the strong strong receiving corp in Fitzgerald, Floyd and Roberts, and the signing of Rashard Mendenhal, as well as a revamped OL give the offense an entire new look and feel, which should greatly improve their overall productivity this year. As far as defense goes, we have Patrick Peterson, Tyrann Mathieu, and Yeremiah Bell, as well as just acquiring John Abraham. Defense is the highlight of the Cardinals, so I'm expecting some big plays this year. Jay Feely is also capable of a 61 yard FG, so special teams should be in good shape in that area (don't mention how he missed the 30 yarder to win the same game.)

I'm really looking at the Cardinals (obviously) to hopefully make the cut, but other then that. I really have no doubt that the 49ers, Packers, Texans, Redskins, Patriots, Falcons, Broncos, and Bengals taking their respective divisions... Colts, Seahawks, Giants or Cowboys, and the Saints or Vikings taking the Wild-Card.

I'm calling the SB as... Broncos and Packers. Both still have that explosive offense, and excellent defense (I wont go into details.)
*This list only qualifies if the Cardinals don't make the playoffs.

As far as MVP, I'm calling Aaron Rodgers or Peyton Manning.

As long as the Cardinals come in second to the Seahawks I will be happy.

Uhhh, I don't really look at the whole picture, I focus on the Seahawks. So I see a battle between the Hawks and 49ers for the West. The Cardinals and Rams will do OK.

Redskins do not win their division because RGIII will do something dumb and hurt himself again. I think the Giants will take it this year. Honestly as long as it is not the Cowboys I am happy.

Uhh, I am too lazy to do every division.

As long as the giants do better than last year, I'm happy. Last year was bad. The only thing that kept us going was that the jets were even worse

I don't mind the Seahawks actually. They deserve a Superbowl win.

I don't think so. He is probably not going to be so ready to run this year. He has to be careful, the wins and losses rest greatly on the decisions he makes out there.

I'm still thinking that Kaepernick is going to get hurt this year. The guy is a braggart, and he thinks he is invincible. If he gets hurt, that is the chance for the rest of the division to take the top spot. =D (Not wishing that he does get hurt, but I think it is inevitable. When the QB leaves the pocket, he loses all protection. Someone is going to really lay into him and finish him off.)

Go Red Sea! I'm a Cards fan too, I actually live about 15 min. away from University of Phoenix Stadium.

If you know me I want the Texans to win and honestly, it look pretty easy winning the AFC. We have filled in empty holes and got stronger players. The AFC if pretty dead right now. Only two teams that will be tough to beat is the Broncos and Colts. Broncos are having O-line problems. As for the Colts. We play them twice a year, so its enough practice. In the end it will be a fight but I think we could win. As for the NFC. Tough teams there. Redskins, Seahawks, 49ers, Packers, and Falcons will be the top teams. I think if we get to the superbowl we will be seeing Seattle or Washington there.


I was wondering if you guys wanted to sign up for my football competion. message me if you do. I'll give you the details if you want.

You forgot the Patriots. Also, the Ravens and Bengals will still be contenders. Better watch for them.

Hey! First time I met a fellow Cards fan online! Glad I'm not alone.

It looks like most of us AG NFL fans are in the same division. But I'm a 49er fan. I hope they can work their way back to the Super Bowl soon. There will be much more competition in the NFC though.
They acquired Carson Palmer, which I believe will make a vast improvement to the offense. Him, the strong strong receiving corp in Fitzgerald, Floyd and Roberts, and the signing of Rashard Mendenhal,

Carson Palmer to me is a very inconsistent QB and can't really be trusted. Looking at his days with the Raiders and Bengals. They were up and down years. The Cardinals have improved their offense and defense and maybe that could help Palmer improve along with them. And if a throw is off, there's always Fitzgerald with the glue on his gloves.
including the Most Voluble Player, handed out to one Lucky,

Probably Peyton Manning.
I don't think so. He is probably not going to be so ready to run this year. He has to be careful, the wins and losses rest greatly on the decisions he makes out there.

His injury was mostly his fault. He was trying too hard to get extra yards. Sometimes as a quarterback, it's better to slide rather than get hit by a much bigger linebacker or a faster safety running full speed at you.
I'm still thinking that Kaepernick is going to get hurt this year. The guy is a braggart, and he thinks he is invincible.

Even tough I am a 49er fan. I slightly agree with you. I seems like he's getting more arrogant. He's a pretty big guy and tough guy but yes, he needs to be careful in some situations.
Uhhh, I don't really look at the whole picture, I focus on the Seahawks. So I see a battle between the Hawks and 49ers for the West. The Cardinals and Rams will do OK.

Oh just clearing things up, when I said I hated the Seahawks. I didn't mean it, inside my heart I don't. It was just that we are division rivals. I love the Seahawks really. Russell Wilson proved all the doubters wrong and their running game is strong. Plus the defense is top-notch and well built.
Broncos are having O-line problems.

I heard about their center getting a torn ACL and is out for the rest of the season. That could be a big blow to the team and especially Peyton. His play style is complex and he likes to audible and call out random stuff (if you look at his soundbites in game) to confuse the defense. But Peyton is an experienced veteran so he will be fine.
You forgot the Patriots. Also, the Ravens and Bengals will still be contenders. Better watch for them.

I think the Ravens will slump this year. No more Ray Lewis, no more Ed Reed, Terrell Suggs hasn't been healthy, and they also lost some of their key offensive contributors.

Am I the only person who wants to see how (poorly) Chip Kelly does in Philly?
