AFC East Predictions

The AFC East will again be most competitive division in football. I'm a big Chad Pennington fan and he has the potential to single-handedly lead this team deep into the playoffs. Watch out for first round draft pick, Jonathan Vilma. Fantasy league sleeper: WR Justin McCareins. The Jets will sneak past New England on tiebreakers.

I don't buy into the whole Patriots dynasty talk. RB Corey Dillon will turn out to be a dubious addition to a team that values cohesion. With DL Ted Washington gone to the Raidahs, how will they stop the run? Many football people are raving about rookie NT Vince Wilfork, like Vilma a product of Miami (FL). I think it's hard to count on a rookie to play nose tackle on a contending team. Aside from that, they have head coach, BIll Belichick and QB Tom Brady. There will be no Super Bowl letdown for the Pats.

I'm not very bullish on this team. They're filled with a bunch of well-known, but over-the-hills names on defense, but I think their two-headed running attack will be the talk of the NFL. Rookie head coach, Mike Mularkey, likes a ball control offense and with RBs Willis McGahee and Travis Henry, the Bills might contend if they start fast and coast to their frigid home-field advantage in snowy December.

These guys make me sad. The loss of Ricky Williams matters less than the season-ending injury of WR David Boston. The window has clearly passed on this once-dominant defense. Jay Fiedler and A.J. Feeley are unacceptable quarterbacks, especially with only one offensive weapon in WR Chris Chambers. Head coach Dave Wannsteadt will be gone by week 4 or 5. Maybe Don Shula will make a comeback?
