[QUOTE]In Response to Re: A week into free agency and who's gonna challenge us in the division or afc? : understood, it we be even better week 16 but there's no best team to someone wins the superbowl other than that it's just opinions and perception, I'm just looking for opinions on what teams have done so far today... And I think the pats in the afc have improved the 2nd most to Denver but not sure that make them better as of today than us.

Lol, fair enough. At this moment, I do like our chances (and we r set up to have a nice draft to fill other needs). Correct me if I'm wrong, but hasn't Baltimore lost a couple of their starting O-Linemen? That could bite them.
I think it's fair to expect a slight drop in defense from the Ravens and Steelers (I think they'll both be good though, don't get me wrong). Ravens lost J. Johnson and Reed/Lewis are going to be a year older. Same for Steelers D (and they could potentially lose Wallace).
Texans lost Mario, but their D seemed to do fine without him last year. They could still use some help in the secondary and Schaub's health is a question mark (I don't think they can win it all without him). They still need another WR to play alongside Andre.
SD has had a couple nice signings, but they did lose V-Jax. I'll be interested to see Meachem in an offense like SD's with a bigger role. However, they are the Chargers...never know what you'll get. I do like KC's upgrades, but they lost Carr and they don't scare me until they prove that they can do some damage. I'm not too high on Denver until I see Manning in action.
Jets...not too worried atm. Dolphins are in a hole with their QB issues and no B. Marshall.
With a good draft and a couple more signings for depth, I like our chances. Draft defense (with maybe a WR and/or O-Lineman somewhere), get another RB and ESTABLISH A RUN GAME (Please :) ?). I think Lloyd will help our passing game out a lot.
