Not sure about that. The only thing that separates them at this point is opportunity.

I think Sanders is a capable #3. It's a shame to lose the guy, he's probably the most replaceable part they've lost so far however.

I completely agree, but Manziel just grates me the wrong way.

With the NFL appearing to be forcefully trying to move away from the era of power, north-south running backs, Austin's value seems to go up.

Ben's stuff that I hate, aside from the exaggerated injury drama, is off camera and out of mind. Manziel bothers me in every way, and I don't think he'll make it in the NFL anyway.

He ruined my friends' chances at a state title (long story why this is somewhat depressing) and was a total d during/after the game. I can't in good faith root for him. Just a silly, petty high school grudge.

How in the world did we get into such horrid cap space?

Was it Timmons/Woodley/Harrison? Obviously Ben eats up a chunk as does Troy. But for a team that "doesn't do Free Agency," I'm kind of perplexed how we dug ourselves into the whole in which we can't re-sign Lewis, who we developed, and Sanders, who is an RFA. This sucks.

That being said, I think this team will be .500+. Elite QBs alone can get you a long way.

Is there any equivalent to capgeek for the NFL. I know the Cowboys can't spend at all really, though fortunately they don't terribly need to(they'll lose in week 17 either way :pop: ), but I don't really know where all the money is going for any team.

I don't know. 10-6 seems pretty plausible as long as we don't crap the bed in a few games like we did last year. The current roster is likely to split Balt. & Cinci. Beat Cleveland twice. Then, we're clearly better than Buffalo, Miami, NYJ, Tennessee, and Detroit. I think we have a slight edge over Chicago at home, Minnesota has a slight edge over us on the road. Lose to GB and NE. That's 10-6. Of course, we could lose to Balt twice, lose to Miami and Detroit or Tennessee and quickly be 7-9 or 8-8.

W-Baltimore-AFC North
W-Cincinnati-AFC North
W-Cleveland-AFC North
W-Buffalo-AFC East
W-Miami-AFC East
W-Chicago-NFC North
W-Detroit-NFC North
W-Tennessee-3rd Place AFC South

Away:
L-Baltimore-AFC North
L-Cincinnati-AFC North
L-Cleveland-AFC North
L-New England-AFC East
W-New York Jets-AFC East
L-Green Bay-NFC North
W-Oakland-3rd Place AFC West

I don't see the Steelers going undefeated at home.

I think 9-7 is a possibility, or 8-8, 10-6 is a best case scenario.

I don't really see this team as a team that can easily beat Cleveland. Home or Away.
