Does he really think someone besides the chargers are going to win the AFC west.
They could probably win that division with their 3rd string qb

They are? I heard early reports on Cassel, I didn't hear much good.

if you watched him in preseason he was on the money and that defense is looking pretty good

You are off your rocker!!!
Cassell is constantly running for his life!! The line can't open any holes either....theiur D doesn't look to bad but that O-line is quite possibly the worst in the league!!!

So, who are the 5 teams that should temper expectations? Before looking I guessed Cardinals, Eagles, Bears, Steelers, and Jets. I may have uneasily selected the Dolphins since my expectations (hopes, really) are not always realistic.

Bears: I don't think the acquisition of Jay Cutler is necessarily going to put them on top of the NFC Central. They could finsh as low as third.

Steelers: Every, I mean EVERY, Steeler fan I have talked to is expecting the Steelers to repeat. They are very good, but repeating is tough. Anything less than a repeat and their fans will be upset.

Jets: Last time I looked Sanchez doesn't have a big "S" on his chest, nor is he wearing a cape. Plus, I always feel Jet fans are overly optimistic.

Honorable mentioned went to the Falcons, Giants, and, of course, the Patriots. Just my opinion.
