This question has been a popular on in recent fanposts, and most of the debates are interesting to say the least. What makes a legitimate Super Bowl contender? Do we look at who will be the top 2 teams of each conference and say they are the only contenders? In that case, for me, it would be the Broncos, Patriots, 49ers and Falcons. That couldn't be right, though. That would mean teams like the Packers and Seattle aren't contenders. I think you have to look at potential division winners. In that case, the contenders, for me, would be the Broncos, Patriots, Ravens, Texans/Colts, 49ers/Seahawks, Falcons, Giants and Packers. To say that the Colts are Super Bowl contenders this early, in my opinion, is accurate. I do not think the Texans will hold on to the division long as I think they regress a little bit. They barely held us off last season during their peak under our 'reload' year. Lets not forget, while Andrew Luck may not be considered an elite QB as of yet, he is the best QB in our divison. Super Bowl contenders? I say yes!
