Default AFC North is pretty bad

Everyone likes to talk about the NFC East being bad, but the AFC North is quietly going under the radar in terms of mediocrity. The winner will be 9-7 tops. The Bengals/Ravens both look extremely average at best. I'd go as far to say that the Browns with their new QB(who is actually explosive) are primed to win that shit.

I wouldn't even completely count out the Steelers who are 0-4 right now. All I know is DALTON and FLACCO look like SHIT.

AFC north has usually been a strong division. This year it's absolutely up for the taking.


Hoyer has been surprising, he passes the eye test but he went up against the Vikings and injury depleted bengals. Still, he delivered.

The AFC North is pretty bad. I think the Ravens will win it though. The Browns are.. ya know, the Browns. AJ Green can only carry the Bengals so far. I have to disagree about the Steelers though. They have looked absolutely terrible. No way they win that division.

Its a bad division, but nowhere near as bad as the NFC East.

Haha just ignore the dudes that bring nothing to the discussion.

I definetly agree that it's not as bad as the NFC East(Giants,Redskins both look like bottom 5 teams, Eagles not too far behind, Dallas is average at best). But I do think it needs to be looked at as a weak division.

It's the one division where ANY team in it can win it....in Week 4. The Bengals/Ravens both have nice defenses, but offensively/at the QB position it is painful to watch.

I think Big Ben is still a really good QB so that's why I'm not too quick to count out the Steelers. He is the best in the division and in the NFL you can never overrate the impact of a quality quarterback.

Which players were out on the Bengals? Defense seemed alright, but their problem is Dalton who looks absolutely terrible thus far.

I can see why some would agree Big Ben is still the best QB in the AFC North, but give me Andy Dalton and especially Flacco over Roethlisberger‎. Even if you take Todd Haley out the picture, I'd be more comfortable with both Dalton and Flacco. To me, Roethlisberger‎ is one of the more overrated QBs league-wide, and vice versa with Dalton. Yes, I'll admit I'm a bit biased considering my love for the Bengals / hatred for the Steelers (hey, at least I'm honest!).

The AFC North is a madhouse at the moment, and up for grabs minus Pittsburgh of course (I mean come on, even as mediocre as you claim the Bengals/Ravens/Browns - they're nowhere near the sheer embarrassment the Steelers are right now). Herm Edwards called it at the beginning of the season, and claimed the Browns will shock people this year; tied for 1st place in the same division as the reigning SB champs, I'd say he may be onto something.

The Ravens just aren't who they were back in January. Flacco isn't the same Flacco we seen back in January. The AFC North belongs to the Bengals this year, plain and simple. We just vecan't seem to win a playoff game. The Texans have punk'd us two years back-to-back, and honestly, I hope we get them again somehow in the 1st round so we can get this monkey off our back, and make the SuperBowl, which we are capable of, yes, even with Andy Dalton.

Dalton isn't an elite QB, never will be. But we all know he's one hell of a game manager. With the amount of talent in Cincy on both sides of the football, maybe the Bengals are the exception that you don't necessarily need an elite QB to make the SB. Maybe I'm wrong, and he'll choke again in the 1st round. Only time will tell, but I think it's pretty safe to say Cincy wins the AFC North and probably more like 11-5 instead of the insulting 9-7 you suggested.

ATM, yes Dalton looks pretty average. 85% QBR, barely over 1k yards passing, 5 TDs with 4 picks after four games, but he'll pick up the slack and his numbers will improve by the end of the season, but more importantly, people should be more focused on the win/loss category as it's the one that matters most, does it not? Dalton is an excellent game manager, and maybe that's all we need. I'd rather have a QB capable of managing shit effectively... managing us effectively enough to make the SuperBowl, instead of being more focused on his individual stats compared to say a Brady or Manning and wondering/debating if dude is Pro-Bowl worthy.
