Ins and Outs 2012-13 NFL Season

La Confora, who is pretty solid on this site...gives us his "6 in" "6 out" theory, which a lot of people have done over the years, it's a pretty consistent metric for the NFL under the modern rules. MY division and wild-card winners for the upcoming season:

AFC East: New England (13-3 last year, even easier schedule this year, Tom Brady, good draft, added help on D)

AFC North: Baltimore (one last hurrah for Reed/Lewis, Flacco improves, offense just does enough)

AFC South: Houston (offense and health make up for absence of Mario Williams and DeMeco Ryans)

AFC West: Kansas City (last few drafts finally add up for a solid season, hold off Peyton in Denver and a fading Chargers)

Wild Card 1:Pittsburgh (can't ever count out the Black 'N Gold, this team would win the West, but Balt. is better up North)

Wild Card 2: Cincinnati (no soph. slump for Dalton, A.J. Green, Gresham, etc. step up, D is solid, go 2-2 vs. Pitt/Balt.)


NFC East: Philadelphia (Vick plays at least 14 games, no distractions with a quiet training camp)

NFC North: Green Bay (A. Rodgers and Co. simply too talented)

NFC South: Atlanta (everyone else is hating on the Falcons, I think Matt Ryan takes a big step this year)

NFC West: San Francisco (they win the worst division in NFL, but not as strong as last year, what does Moss have left?)

Wild Card 1: Detroit (up and coming, still, secondary still has concerns, similiarly built to N.E.)

Wild Card 2: Dallas (beats out NYG for final spot)
