Back by popular demand, we have another batch of classic comments from our AFC North community before the start of the 2008 season.
- "[Week 1] the Cleveland Browns will beat the Dallas Cowboys today 27-24. The Pittsburgh Steelers get beat up at home against the Houston Texans 24-14. The Ratbirds get stomped by the Bungals 34-10."
- "The Browns will surprise people and beat the Cowboys."
- "Reading this garbage of an article just makes all these guys preseason picks even more meaningless. Wonder what they're gonna say when the Bengals start 2-0?"
- "This is my take on the AFC North situation. Right now I don't consider Baltimore a legit threat, because they have a new first year coach which means a new system to learn, and its heading into the final week of preseason and haven't decided on a starting QB yet, putting rookie Joe Flacco back in the mix."
- "Baltimore -- major questions at QB, defense is aging and a new head coach. Just too many questions to contend."
- "The Cincinnati Bengals have so much talent on their squad. The Bengals offense is far more talented than the Steelers, like it or not Steeler fans."
- "I'll take Bengals for AFC and the Saints for NFC this year. GO BENGALS."
- "If I'm going to be completely honest with myself, I do still see the Steelers winning the division this year. But after that, I don't see them going very far. Hopefully to the divisional round, but no further."
- "I'm not a Bengals fan, but the Steelers are garbage."
- "My Ravens and Bengals will duke it out for last place...sad."
- "You are crazy if you think the Steelers can take the Pats or any team for that matter."
- "I think Rashard Mendenhall will start by week 6...Go Steelers."
- "Lawrence Timmons looks awesome this pre-season, he will start by week 3."
- "Why not use Rashard Mendenhall like Franco Harris? He could run, block, and catch the ball. An all purpose back is an excellent weapon."
- "I think the Steelers are a good team but they are no better than the Bengals."
- "Pittsburgh's corners are still JV and the mediocre o-line won't help Ben Roethlisberger or the running game."
- "How will the Ravens be better than the Browns? What have the Ravens done to get better?"
- "I love watching all of you guys make predictions, which usually never hold their own."
