Seattle is going to dismantle Washington
The pack will make the Vikings their bitch
The Colts are lucky to be there...but not as much as the Ravens. Colts win that one.
The Texans will crush the Bengals. Okay, maybe not crush. But by two scores...call it ten points.
AFC West vs NFC West. The three other NFC West teams are very young, loaded with talent, and have top tier coaches. There's nowhere to go in that division for the next 5 years. I think the Cardinals job is the least attractive head coaching job in the league right now. Outside of Peyton Manning, there is virtually no talent in the AFC West, there are no top tier coaches, and the three other teams are very old. (Chargers have the oldest team in the NFL.) The "window" to compete will be much sooner and much longer in that division.
In my personal opinion, here's how I'd rank the head coaching gigs:
The Chargers could be a decent job, but I think the expectation is that they will win NOW, and what really needs to happen is a complete roster dump like what Pete Carroll did in Seattle. So the unreasonable expectation drops them down. You could say the same about the Bears, but I think the "win now" expectation is a bit more reasonable.
All Arizona is missing is a QB because the one they signed came from...Andy Reid. Arizona's defense is really good and they also have the best WR in the game. They're close to being good, but suddenly they're in one of the toughest divisions in the game. Just two years ago Seattle won the NFC West at 7-9 I believe.
KC is a total rebuild job but after rebuilding for two years, Manning will be 38 and KC can run the division for a while. Plus he'll probably get the leash to suck for a year or two because of how bad they are right now...plus Pioli knows he won't be able to survive another coaching change.
