Remember last year?

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

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."
