    I picked up Stephens-Howling off my first FA pick at the beginning of the season, particularly since HB Shonn Green was injured in preseason. This guy is a burner, but will dump the ball on any big hits. He is great on special teams, too. I like to use him East to West after I am trucking up the gut a few plays and sense that the defense will be cheating with 8 in the box.

    Great content!!!

    DU55 Nothing on my Ravens? I guess there isn't much to write about as we aren't having a great season.

    Somehow I forgot to add them. Sorry bout that. I have their info in my notebook but somehow forgot to put it in the thread. Babysitted my 3 month old daughter all day and was exhausted by the point I went to post the thread. Will get ravens info up first chance I get.

    I figured when he added them as Sewer Brewers that was more than ample write-up for them :)

    Seriously, what's going on with them Ravens this year?

    I've played against TheRealHalupka in our NCAA OD and know he has the skills. I fully expect him to whip the Ravens into shape next year.

    Maybe Ray Rice is dragging you down Halupka, you need to ship him to Cincinnati!

    The New York Jets have a really good shot at winning the division if everyone stays healthy. Not because we are that good, but there are only 2 user teams in the division!

    We have been playing very well lately, but there are some really good teams in this division. So we don't look ahead, we game plan each week as the schedule dictates.

    Randiesel75 a lotta turnovers with Flacco early in the season. I think I have around 20 INTs total with him. Ray Rice has 5 fumbles even though he has a 94 carry rating. I can't explain that one.

    My defense and offensive yardage isn't bad. By season 2 I should be in much better shape.

    For this season, it's time to play spoiler starting with Pittsburgh RRAHx2

    In the AFC North I'm going to (unfortuantly) say that the Steelers ( RRAHx2 ) hang on to the division lead and that I (Bengals) make the playoffs as one of the wildcards. I think that the Browns ( dj illmatic 23 ) has a great chance at a wildcard spot as well. My prediction is that 3 AFC North teams make it to the playoffs and prove that it is the toughest division in football.

    With the Chargers and Raiders loosing this week the Bolts are still only one game back in the division with a crack at the Raiders the last game of the season. I believe that I will have to win 4 out of my next 6 at least to make it to the playoffs. My final 6 games are against good opponents so this will not be easy... However, the Chargers are still alive in the division and wildcard race in the AFC. We just have to break this loosing streak!

    We obviously haven't played or become familiar with anyone in the league yet but I'd say based on talent the Steelers and Raiders will be battling for top team in AFC (no surprise there). That's all we can go with from this point. As for my team the Broncos, we are going to make a strong push to get as many Ws as we can the next several weeks and see what happens. But looks like we will have a top 16 draft pick this year. Will be ready and willing to fire on all cylinders next year, especially on defense.

    The Raiders are a game ahead in the AFC West and WILL win the AFC West (naturally :) )

    As far as the other divisions, AFC north right now is in control of the Steelers and they do not seem to be slowing down even with a new owner. With two games ahead of the second place Bengals, Steelers would need a major collapse so not make the playoffs.

    The other two divisions are odd to even predict, the leading Jag's owner i think is moving to the 49ers??? So now that division has one owner that is playing? I believe the titans/texans are on AP???

    Same goes for the east, I think the Jets are the only team with a consistent owner at this point.

    Hard to see how things will play out except for the west since we are winning this thing! (y)
