Im really beleiving. This division is weaker. Patriots are clearly (FINALLY) in decline at least for this season , Jets are all hype & Sanchez is not there .... yet , Bills will get better but its not happening this season.
While we are not Indy , Green Bay or the Saints we easily make the playoffs where anything can happen.
Not sure if you are being sarcastic or not, but I'm in 99% agreement. We will get in, but it won't be easy. I think we're the most balanced team in the East, but it's always tough beating division opponents on the road in December, especially when they're NY and NE.
PR - here is why I am a beleiver at least for this season. You see my reasons as for the division. After this season , New Englands defense is not young anymore & it will be a good defense once again & I know its not cool here to like Brady but as long as he is there they will surround him with a good offense & can dominate again. The Bills will be better & at some point will be wise enough to draft a QB. I dont know what the Jets will be but I dont care. As for the rest od the afc , I like the Steelers as I think Tomlin is by far the best coach in the league & they will win a couple more rings under his tenure but the Roethlisberger thing hurts them this year but they will find that Dixon is a good QB.
Indy is our main roadblock , Ravens are poised to be dominant but I see that after year 4 for Flacco. There are other good afc teams I know but we can compete with them at least this season.
So that is part of my thinking why this has to be the year , I dont think we are building a dynasty but who is.
