    Which team will be the biggest surprise:
    I'm not sure if they are a surprise anymore but Oakland for sure.

    Which team is going to decline greatly after a great previous season: Broncos. After all their losses this offseason it's gonna be tough to repeat. I say they will get eliminated early in playoffs or could even miss

    MVP: way to early for me to even predict this

    Super Bowl Matchup: I'll wait to answer this until after draft and such but Patriots always have a shot no matter what time of year. And then I'll throw the Eagles in jus because I'm biased

    I think this year of football will be great. Lots of poor teams have bad improvements in the right areas. I think it will be highly competitive

    Yeah Oakland not gonna be much of a surprise I don't think at this point. They were last year but people are expecting them to make a step forward after what they did last year plus their offseason moves. I'd probably throw in Jacksonville for biggest surprise.

    I'm not so sure at Denver falling off. Their offense wasn't too great last year but they still have one of the best defenses in the league.

    Yeah there is a good mix of bottom feeders that are gonna make their way up this year. That's why i think it's gonna be exciting.

    I was having the same debate with a friend. I don't think they will completely fall off and yeah their defense carried them the entire time but I'm almost sure they won't get close to repeating. I guess it's my bold prediction. I don't see many teams falling off. Most teams that are mediocre are probably gonna stay there.

    I don't want to admit it but the Cowboys could be a team to easily flip their record from last year if they stay healthy.

    Yeah wel I'm sure it would have been completelydifferent if Hicks didn't destroy Romo. Plus they got Alfred Morris who is going to tear it up behind that o line next year

    Which team will be the biggest surprise:
    I think the Titans and Jags are gonna give Indy & Houston a run for their money in the AFC South.
    Which team is going to decline greatly after a great previous season:
    Cardinals. Don't think they're a bad team but I don't think they're good enough to come close to the same success as last year. They got exposed in the playoffs and haven't really made any moves.
    MVP:
    [​IMG]
    Kelvin Benjamin back, I don't see why he won't be even better next season. Brady & Wilson will be up there as well.

    As a Bears fan so would I, but their Super Bowl was one of the best in recent memory. Peyton is gone so I feel like NE will have a cake walk. Seattle seems to go there every other year, so in a down season for them I think they'll come in focused, they closed really well down the stretch.

    I like the Steelers too but I don't think they qualify as sleepers. No Bell or Brown and they were still solid in the playoffs.

    Which team will be the biggest surprise: Oakland Raiders

    Which team is going to decline greatly after a great previous season: Seattle Seahawks. Maybe not a ton, but I wouldn't be surprised if they miss the playoffs.

    MVP: Derek Carr

    I was gonna pick them as my surprise team but I feel like with all the off season moves and their improvements towards the end of last year, they're not exactly sneaking up on anybody.

    Good for them though, don't think they've been as good since the Rich Gannon days.

    Tell me about it bro..... Haven't seen a winning season since then. It's been a rough life, considering I was in barely in elementary school when we were good. They aren't really a sleeper, you're right, but I think they have a chance to be better than expected. I think Vegas has them winning 7-8 games. I could see them getting in the double digit wins. I'd be happy with a 9-10 win season tho.

    Well Broncos are obviously gonna slip a bit, KC isn't really scaring anyone so they have a shot at the division IMO.

    I'm not too worried about Denver. We beat them once last year and should've beat them twice. We lost to KC twice, but were in the game both times and some really flukey s--- happened in crucial points. Besides the opener against the Bengals and part of the Packers game, we were in every game... pretty much the whole time. We easily could have done it last year. We won 7 games. You give us the Bears, Lions, Steelers, and one of the KC games, and that's an 11 win team. There were even a few other games like the other Denver game that were close. With all the additions this offseason and the best o-line in the league, no one is gonna wanna play the Raiders. The only issue is the secondary. C-Wood and Amerson were the only reliable options last year and C-Wood decided to hang it up. I think Sean Smith and Amerson can be the one and two corners, but losing out on Weddle in FA s----d. We need safety's. TJ Carrie isn't awful, but he's very injury prone and didn't show any growth in his second year. We're gonna have to draft defense, unless Elliot is still there at 14. Another pass rusher wouldn't hurt either. Imagine the team once we get Aldon Smith back from suspension.

    Biggest surprise: I'm thinking the Raiders or the Bucs will emerge as very decent teams and one of them will reach the post-season.

    Decline: I just don't see the Cardinals after that laughably bad playoffs performance to come out and be so dominant.

    MVP: Tony Romo. He and Dez will have a rebound year and he'll pull the MVP that he came so close to snagging in 2014.

    Super Bowl Matchup: New England vs Dallas
