Operating under the assumption — which may or may not apply in 2010 — that half of the teams that made it to the playoffs in 2009 won't return at the end of the coming season, I've identified the six teams most likely to get back and the six most likely to fail.

If the assumption applies, these six have the best chances of the 20 non-playoff teams from 2009 to qualify again.

Miami Dolphins

If the Patriots and the Jets fall out of the postseason mix, someone has to win the AFC East. So it'll be the Dolphins or the Bills.

The Bills have done little to improve their team since the 2009 season ended. Though running back C.J. Spiller could make an immediate impact, the Bills need more help than one ball-carrier can provide — especially if they don't have a quarterback who can take advantage of all the attention Spiller will receive, and if they don't have the linemen to block for him.

So the Dolphins would be the team to reclaim the division, thanks to the development of quarterback Chad Henne, the arrival of receiver Brandon Marshall and the jolt to the defense provided by new coordinator Mike Nolan.


Pittsburgh Steelers

Houston Texans

New York Giants

San Francisco 49ers

Florio is saying it will be the Dolphins in the playoffs ... the Jets and Patsies will be on the outside looking in.

I can enjoy that!

He sort of describes it as winning by default.

For the Pats and Jets to fall out of the playoffs and the Dolphins to make it, the Phins will have to beat up their division rivals, right?

So it's hardly winning by default. It's knocking them out and taking the division.

I dont know ... I kinda get the feeling he is saying that the Jets & the Pats are the 2 best teams & should be in the post season but if they are not , then the Dolphins are better than the lowly Bills , therefore winning by default ... in his opinion of course

He's saying since he is forced to knock NE and NY out, Miami gets in over Buffalo. I'm with FINesse.

I think he's right about 1 thing...this team will live or die based on the coaching job that Mike Nolan does with the defense. If he puts them in the top 10, I like Miami's chances in the East.
