Does anybody else feel this way? The last three super bowl champs (Saints, Packers, and Giants) have come out of the NFC. And this isn't even considering all the teams in the NFC that are in the running. The Bears, Lions, Eagles, Niners, Falcons, Panthers, Cowboys are all contenders.

In the AFC, the Pats and possibly the Steelers may be the only teams left to make a serious run.

The Ravens have already lost Suggs and may not re-sign Rice plus Lewis and Reed are aging.

The Texans lost Demeco Ryans and Mario Williams to free agency.

The Chargers ironically enough haven't made it to the playoffs since they let go L.T. and were even worse without Sproles last year.

The Jets are just.... well disappointing.

The Bengals lost Cedric Benson

The Broncos are a question mark.

No way, Pats will win it this year. They've added outside receivers and defense this offseason, and picked up Joseph Adai, a nice versatile all purpose running back. They're a better team than last year already. Green Bay and the Giants are still tops in the NFC, and I think San Fran will dissapoint this year. JMHO of course.

If you are going to start throwing around the Panthers and Cowboys as contenders I can't take this seriously.

Lol... I didn't even see those teams. So much for skimming.

I'm a Cowboys fan and wouldn't put us in there.

The Panthers are laughable.

good point.

You could probably remove the Falcons and Bears too.

The Panthers are on the rise and the Cowboys will be there as always. Hell last year they almost beat the Pats in New England. The best team in the AFC.

How are the jets any different than Dallas? You had me till you said Atl,Carolina, and Lions. none of them have done anything. At least the Jets have been to two AFC Champion games in the last couple years.

If those teams are the definition of "contenders" then the original OP is missing a hell of a lot of teams from the AFC on that list.

But really, how is a team with one playoff win in the last 15 years that finished 8-8 last year and a team that went 6-10 last year contenders?
