AFC East - New England (15-1) - This is an easy one. They were undefeated in the regular season last year and the rest of the division is made up of marshmallows (Favre included). Consider this a lock.
AFC North - Pittsburgh (9-7) - Speaking of locks, the Steelers have been the heavy favorite (or at least a strong contender) for the division title for as long as I can remember. They've added more depth on offense this year, and even though everyone whines about their O-line and D-line, you'd be a fool not to pick them (Herb = fool). True, they've got a tough schedule ahead, but so does the rest of their division. You could go 9-7 and win this one easy. Let's face it, their competition is the Brownies, Bungles, and the Billick-less Ravens. Lock.
AFC South - Indianapolis (13-3) - Like New England, this one is a safe bet. They've been the muscle in the division for years, and Jeff Saturday on IR isn't going to change that.
AFC West - Denver (10-6) - Do I think Denver can pull it off? No. But my picks are looking too much like the others, and I really hate LT & Co. So we'll say they both finish 10-6 but Denver wins the tie break. Don't sleep on Shanny. Cutler is better than hayseed Phil Rivers, and Juice Merriman is gonna end his career in game 3 with a doofus injury. All signs point to San Diego getting humbled this year.
Wildcards - San Diego (10-6) and Jacksonville (11-5). The wild cards here are two teams that everyone is picking to go all the way because people are tired of picking New England. Urban would call these teams 'sexy picks.' I call them 'Round 1 KOs'. I sure hope the Steelers get the Faguars in the first round. Tomlin doesn't forget a beating, and that game belonged to Pittsburgh last year.
NFC East - Dallas (12-4) - I hate Romo and I HATE Jessica Simpson. I hate T.O., and I've hated the Cowboys for years. But I still gotta pick them. It's an easy pick. I mean, shit, whose gonna challenge them...the Eagles?! Yea, don't hold your breath Philly.
NFC North - Green Bay (11-5) - Favre sucks. GOOOOO RODGERS!!!
NFC South - Tampa Bay (10-6) - The rest of this division is useless. And I love it when New Orleans is doing awful, so I'll pick against them and send them packing from the playoffs.
NFC West - Seattle (10-6) - Super Bowl XL, assholes. Stop your crying. You're lucky I gave you this much.
Wilcards - Minnesota (9-7) and NYG (9-7) - You can get a lot done by having a great running game, even if the rest of your team blows. As for the Giants, well, you can always count on Burress. And I like having on the record that the Eagles won't finish in the top 2 of their division.
