After the draft, trades, and personnel shifts, who do you think will be crowned Super Bowl Champs?

Again, this is a hard thing to do without even the preseason but it's always fun to debate against the other teams.

Personally, I would want to say my team, but they aren't "dominant". If I had to give my 2 cents, it would be the 49ers. Not only did they not lose players, they gained some play-makers. Dominant defense and a run first offense has always been a recipe for success.




Tact is telling someone to go to hell and them looking forward to the trip.

The Patriots, duh.

I almost want to say that Buffalo is going to be great this year, but that's what I said last year and look at how that ended up.

Pfft. The Cardinals are going to beat the Niners into the ground twice this year on their way to the Super Bowl! B)
...or at least that's what the fan in me wants to see happen. :(

The Cards defense is already quite good; it can match up toe-to-toe against most offenses and it makes things happen. It's the fact they're on the field for 40 minutes of the game and giving the ball back to an offense that can't score that's the problem for them. If Kolb or Skelton step up this season and get the offense rolling, they have a team that could possibly give the Niners a run for their money for the lead in the NFC West and surprise everyone.

Realistically though, I anticipate we'll see the Niners and Pats playing in February.

Ooh, now that I think about it 49ers-Patriots would be epic. My dream was Packers-Pats but that never happened. :(

I'll take somebody out of the NFC North (other than the Vikings). The Packers are still a strong contender. Meanwhile, the Bears have Matt Forte, Jay Cutler (who played well last season), and a dependable defense. And then you have the Lions (my hometown team). To be honest, I think that they underpreformed last year. The defensive line has more potential than it showed last year. The secondary was quite good until injuries occured. Meanwhile, the offensive line should improve slightly, the passing game should develop even further (barring injuries), and the running game can't get any worse.

Outside of the NFC North, I think that the Denver Broncos have some potential. Their defense was stellar last season (not sure if they lost anybody). The running game flourished in a mostly one dimensional offense. And then of course, they added Peyton Manning. They're definately my team to watch.

However, I'm going with the Lions, mostly because this is the first time I honestly believe that they could pull it off.

not only because I am a Patriots fan , but it is kind of obvious that we want that win more than ever now haha. We trade up in the draft (which we never do, we always trade out). Picking up 2 1st rounders, filling a ton of wholes in the defense that we needed back-ups for (seeing last season using a lot of special teams reserve players), and we did fine last season, making it to the super bowl. On top of all that we sealed two key players to longer contracts in the names of Wes Welker and Rob Gronkowski (Gronk now being the highest payed Tight end in the game, which is not a suprise at all seeing as he broke 2 tight end records last season only being his second year, and while having a busted knee). It's going to be a Pat-tastic season
