1. Chiefs 2. Browns 3. Bills


Recommended Posts

Not to be trite but I hope that the league and media perception is that Cleveland, Baltimore and Indianapolis are all better than Buffalo and that the AFC East is up for grabs. 

 

This team is better served being doubted at this stage in their roster and development, IMO.

The Chiefs entered the off season after getting man handled in the Super Bowl because their O-line had fallen apart.  They blew up their O-line and decided to rebuild.  On paper at least, they look to

The Browns came in 3rd in their own division last year.  (I know they were only one game behind the Steelers)   I think you are underestimating the advantage of having Josh Allen at the helm

I rank this thread 6th on the wall today

Josh Allen is becoming a popular name aroung the league as MVP.

 

Them days might be over...

Browns always look great on paper, but there’s something to be said about team chemistry.  Pittsburgh handed the playoff game and couldn’t beat Hennepin when the game was there to take. If they would have beaten KC, Buffalo would have beaten them in Buffalo in the AFC championship game and may have matched up to TB better than KC did

Kudos for putting this together, but you lost me right there with the bolded.

 

The Chiefs lost starting DE Tanoh Kpassagnon to NO, starting OLB Damien Wilson to Jacksonville, and starting CB Brashad Breeland is still unsigned as a FA.  Defensive end Alex Okafor saw significant playing time (40-50% of the snaps) and is also an unsigned FA at this point.

 

When they lose or have unsigned 3-4 key defensive contributors who saw a lot of snaps and you come out with "the only free agent they lost of any consequence was Watkins", that begs the question just what do you consider "of any consequence"? 

 

Now it may be that just like OL, they made sufficient FA or draft moves on D to backfill, or have understudies who looked good and are ready to step in, but at least tell us what those were and why they're just as good. 

 

And frankly, it wasn't just the KC OL that was a problem for them in the Superbowl.  Their D gave up 145 yds on the ground and gave TB a TOP edge not to mention 3 TD passing.

 

KC is the team to beat in the AFC until proven otherwise, no argument there.  I don't know as much about the Brownies, but frankly, the significant gaps in your KC analysis make me question how deep and thoughtful your analysis of the Brownies may be.

 

 

 

Kpassagnon signed a two year contract with the Saints worth $4.5 million.  

 

Wilson went to the Jags on a one year contract worth $2 million

 

Okafor played 26% of the snaps last year, not 40-50%, and spent big chunks of 2019 and 2020 on IR.  Maybe Andy is looking for more durability. 

 

Breeland is still a free agent two months into free agency in a position of high demand.  I think that says something about Breeland.

 

Respectfully Hap, I don't think any of these players are key loses to the Chiefs and needed to be pointed out in the OP.  If you feel that my omitting these four players from the KC side of the equation undermines my entire position, we will just have to agree to disagree on that one.

The browns played the chiefs after they played Pittsburg handing them a game.  The chiefs played us after beating the mediocre browns.  We played the chiefs after grueling games against the colts and ravens.

 

 

LOL at the idea of how Cleveland played KC compared to how we did as any sort of meaningful benchmark

Did people even watch the Chiefs vs Browns playoff game? 

 

Chiefs were up 19-10 when Mahomes got injured midway through the 3rd Quarter. 

 

Mahomes did not miss much of the game. The Chiefs were not dominating even when Mahomes was in. 


This is a key point to remember. In the AFC Championship game, all the Chiefs drives resulted in TDs except for two. (1 punt and 1 FG.) The Bills defense did not give the team as a whole a chance to win.

 

In their playoff game against the Chiefs, the Browns defense did a significantly better job than did the Bills. 
 

Both defenses have added more horses. But for the Bills more horses alone won’t be enough. McDermott and Frazier need to come up with a much better plan or scheme than the one they deployed in the AFC Championship game. I hope they’re working on that this off-season. 
 

If the Bills’ early draft picks pan out, and if Lamp is the answer at starting OG, they should have the talent to challenge for the conference championship. But they’re not getting past KC without a better defensive plan.

Now do Bills vs Browns

The bills are better because Josh allen is better thanks baker, I believe McD is better than stefanski (sustained success vs 1 season) and our culture is better.   I would give the overall talent level edge to Cleveland

On an unrelated note:  What is the obsession of having to rank everything, everywhere, all the time?

I just don't get it.  I'm old I guess.

 

I'm now moving you down my TBD big-board of posters.....

I agree for the most part.  I do believe Breeland played an important part of their defense though.  But he still may return.  In fact, I expect him to return.  We shall see

You'd give me 5/2 on Cleveland to be a playoff team in 2021?

or whatever the fractional equivalent of Cleveland +250 to miss playoffs is

With no equal mention of our draft it reads very much like ‘the Browns drafted guys I wanted so they’ll be better than us’

How many of our draftees will be starting?  Most likely zero.  How many will play meaningful snaps, most likely, 2. Their draft class is likely to have a much bigger impact on 2021 than the bills draftees. You would agree.....no?

So teams got better after the draft and free agency? Cool. 

 

Guess we’ll see what’s what on the field. 

 

 

I bet you don’t talk to your mother like that!

Football doesn't work like that. What happened one week has no bearing on what happens the next. There is no way to logically justify that because Team X played better than Team Y in consecutive weeks against Team Z that therefore Team X would beat Team Y if they had played.

I do not believe a higher percentage of rookies starting is a valid basis for comparing the relative strengths of two teams. Often quite the opposite actually.

Cleveland needs to worry about going 0.500 in the AFC North.  Cleveland last finished better than 3rd in the AFC North in 2002.  Cleveland has not won their division since 1989.  

 

In conclusion, shut up about the Browns. SHUT UP ABOUT THE F@#$ING BROWNS!!!

 

 

Coming into last season the Bills hadn't won the AFCE since 1995.  That didn't stop them from winning it last year.

 

The Steelers finished 12-4, the Browns and Ravens both finished 11-5.  While the Brown did finish 3rd last year, that's a bit deceptive taken out of context.  They were one game behind Pittsburgh and had the same record as the Ravens.  They are right there in the AFCN and I think they will win the division this year.

 

If my thread has caused you some emotional distress Jauronimo,  my sincere apologies, sir.

If I get 5/2 for Cleveland to make the playoffs I'd take it. $50 charity bet. If I lose I pay $50 to a charity of your choice. If you lose you pay $175 to a charity of my choice.
