AFC playoff predictions/breakdown

Posted on: January 1, 2011 4:46 pm
 
I did an NFC already. I wasn't gonna do this, but I decided to do it anyways despite the critics. Who will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl? Been pretty accurate these last few years. Well at least not my preseason predictions, but than again whose is?

I'll state why or why not I'm picking this team to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.

Jacksonville Jaguars- Still have a shot to make the playoffs, but I'm not picking them to get in. With their starting quarterback David Garrard now on IR ending his season I highly doubt they will even win their last regular season game with Trent Edwards.

New York Jets- The media's pick coming into the season was the Jets. All the talking with the HBO show to the foot fetish. All the talking has come to an end. Now you got to prove it. New York Jets winning the Super Bowl talk all year. Now all the talking will be on the field. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Chiefs upset the Jets. I'm actually picking the Chiefs to upset the Jets. Jets offense isn't consistant enough in my opinion. Sanchez isn't great at all. Not even good. LOL! Running game is lost. Defense wouldn't be able to handle an offense like the Colts or Patriots. I doubt they will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. Again prove me wrong.

Baltimore Ravens-To me the Baltimore Ravens are one of the most under-rated football teams in the league. Yes they were one of the media's so-called picked, but they don't get the respect they deserve. They are a great football team. Great defense! Offense will need to step up for them to get to the Super Bowl. I don't think their passing game is as good as one thought. Running game was thrown out of the window where Rice wasn't getting his carry's. I think their offense will cost their team a chance to be in the Super Bowl. It will come down to the passing game in the end. Ravens could definately surprise us though. They are in my opinion the 3rd best team in the league right now.

Indianapolis Colts-I like their chances of making the playoffs and winning their division. Despite the teams struggles on offense due to injuries I think they are still a bit of a force in the AFC. They would give the Pats a battle if they were to face again. Just an opinion of course. I think the injuries will haunt them and lead them out of the playoffs.

Kansas City Chiefs-Some people would call this team a darkhorse. This team surprised us all. New coaching staff really helped revive this franchise. Matt Cassel has done a great job at quarterback. The running game is the true leader of this football team o. Charles along with Thomas Jones have made a force in that department. That is one of the reasons why I like them to take down the Jets. They are pretty good on special teams as well. Not that bad in the passing game either. I like their chances. Wouldn't be surprised if they did lose in the wildcard round like everyone expect. Wouldn't be surprised if they won in the wildcard round either. Great season o.

Pittsburgh Steelers-One of the reasons I wasn't gonna create one of these for the AFC because I would be criticized cuz of my biased towards my favorite football team the Pittsburgh Steelers. I like their chances to be honest. To me they are one of the top 2 teams in the league right now. Best defense in the league always helps come playoff time. Great wideouts with one emerging Mike Wallace. Running game is pretty good. Mendenhall is in the top 10 in that category. I think the Steelers will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. They have all the key components to get it done.

New England Patriots-Media's pick, majority of everyones pick. Of course they have a strong passing game. Under-rated defense among other qualities. Have a great quarterback who more likely than not will be named the MVP this year. They have one of the most praised head coaches in the NFL on their side as well along with home field advantage. You gotta think with all those advantages you gotta pick this football team. Any team can win on any given day. That's why we play the game. That's why I'm not picking the Patriots.

This is my breakdown of all of the AFC teams. Why and why not I pick them. So on and so forth. Tell me what ya think. Steelers will represent the AFC in the Super Bowl.

AFC playoff predictions/breakdown

so let me get this straight... the Pats have an under-rated defense, the best qb in the league, great recievers and tight ends, and a strong running game and they've beaten the colts, steelers, ravens, and jets... and they have home field advantage... and you are NOT using your bias when choosing your pittsburg steelers...


I have several reasons as to why the Steelers can beat the Pats. What's the point listing them when you are gonna say "excuses or we will see". Not a real point of going back and forth. Let Steelers football do the talking.

It's impossible to take your post seriously. Instead of insults, why don't you come up with some FACTS? Here's one for you: The Steelers have the #1 scoring and run defense in the league. Here's another one: Ben Roethlisberger is having his best year despite missing the first 4 games. Here are some more things to consider: Wallace, Pouncey, Timmons, Harrison, POLAMALU. What do you got? Only insults. So immature.

I'm totally biased as a Steelers fan but I believe the Steelers can go all the way especially if they win today in Cleveland. No one can beat the Steelers when they have a point to make. The critics never thought they win the first 4 games without Ben and no one expected them to be 11-4 with 4 starters on IR, the off-season issues and now with a decimated o-line. Ben is the toughest QB in the NFL and he will lead the team to victory. Here we go!

why dont you review the thread fool.  see who used the idiot card first!
You started with insulting me.

let me help:  What is the REASON you think the steelers will beat the pats other than your juvenile wishing it to happen.  You know, what is the LOGIC behind that statement.  THAT would mean that you were reasonable. 
For one they may have more than 5 healthy offensive lineman to play. Aaron Smith will be back. I mean I can go on, but than you will bring up excuses and this and that. What is the point?

every week it is the same junk with you.  the steelers are great!  everybody else sucks! 
You never give me credit for when I give credit to others. I gave credit to the Chiefs, Pats, Ravens, the list goes on just in the last 3 days. Look at my blogs. Heck I said the Ravens were the third best team in the league and stated they were under-rated in yet you state I said everybody else sucks. I never state the word sucks in any of my posts. That is like a child that has no reason to state they sucked. I gave Pats credit after cooling off last month. I stated Brady was the MVP. What else do you want? Me to state the Pats are far superior of my favorite team and continue to bash mine. That is stupid. No passionate fan of their team would.

it is really really sickening that your life revolves around steeler fotball
Have you not checked my blog? I have talked basketball just as much as football.

the fact that you can not provide any objectivtiy to your ridiculous posts only confirms that you are the "fool" that everyone knows you are.
Insults again? You expect not to be called idiot? What is the point of giving reasons only than to be told those are excuses as to why for the loss last time. It isn't worth the effort just to be called excuses. Be called cry baby or something like that.

now crawl back into your room and say your prayers that the steelers win tommorrow or else you can go and hide and cry like you did earlier this year you fucking pu$$y!
Again nothing intimidates me on these boards. I'm not afraid of looking at a monitor or talking sports on the computer. You constantly remind of cooling off last month. I suggest finding bigger worries than whether or not I'm on CBS. You are like some creeper who is a constant critic of me that won't go away.

You are so insecure atfool it is nauseating!  You need constant reinforcement from others about the steelers.  it is sad!
What are you? What do you call yourself? You are like some shark waiting for blood. Any time I make a post reguarding the Steelers being the best or the Pats you come out of nowhere and become some sort of critic. What is with the name calling? What are you in grade school.
