Many things change this off season but the AFC SOUTH still remain the same. The Colts and the Texans will battle it out for 1st place, while the Titans while making vast improvements look like a lock at 3rd with the Jags coming in last.
Colts record 9-7
I think we may have a minor stumble with all the new pieces we have. I think the o-line will pull it together around game 3. This should help Vick Ballard to run between 800 to 1000 yards this season.
Break out Season: Dwayne Allen
New OC Pep Hamilton loves to utilize the TE. Many people are focus on what DHB will bring to the table as well as how much Coby Fleener game will improve with this new offense. Allen should quietly have a great season and possibly become a pro-bowl alternate.
Hot Seat: Donald Brown
Health and not having a FB has been his issues. We now use a FB but i think its a day to late for Brown. I hope he does well so he can possibly be traded this season instead of just letting him walk.
The Texans record 12-4
They will have another winning season but the QB position is a big concern for the team. Foster may struggle early in the season but he should be near his average the past 2 season on rushing.
Break out Season: Edd Reed
Yes he still have it. He is in a division with Blane Gabbertt and Jake Locker so espn top 10 watch out. The pass rush of the Texans will make Reed look 4 years younger.
Hot Seat: Matt Schaub
I think i eluded to this earlier but he may be the weak link. They brought in Hopkins for a legitimate no. 2 wr and with a great play action ability the team has. I think the Texans may surprise some people by drafting a QB in the early rounds next year.
This team has alot of potential but also alot of questions. Will CJ2K return to form. Is Jake Locker their QB for the future. Will there be a bounty system ( just kidding). A RB can be a QB best friend but with the offensive weapons Locker has will CJ2K get his touches?
Break out season: Gregg Williams
He has a couple of thumpers on his D. If the Titans pound and ground the D will be fresh and Williams had alot of time to do his homework last year.
Hot seat: Mike Munchak
I believe he will put together a great o-line but I doubt he will get another get out of jail free card.
The Jags 3-13
New Jerseys same losing attitude. One positive note is that 1 of those wins will be against the Titans which will be why Munchak loses his job. MJD is coming off injury and Blackman is suspended the 1st quarter of the season. This will be a rough season for them.
Break out season: Tim Tebow
With every loss the Jags will have reporters and fans asking about Tebow. Chuck Norris cosigns this.
Hot Seat: Jacksonville
These new Jerseys may become valuable as the last memorabilia that Jacksonville had a NFL team
