Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers – Superbowl 51 Contenders

 

The Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers are two hungry talented teams with latent potential to  go all the way in  2016-7 as they did 5 years ago.

 

Green Bay Packers GM Ted Thompson is never ever active in free agency. He just gets brand-new players from the draft, and this year was no different. All Green Bay did this year in free agency was re-sign linebacker Nick Perry, and add tight end Jared Cook as add another weapon for the best quarterback in the league, Aaron Rodgers. With Rodgers at the helm, Green Bay will always be Super Bowl competitors. With receiver Jordy Nelson coming back next season, the Packers’ offense will return to its pre-2015 season hype, and it is going to be very dangerous.

The Pittsburgh Steelers nearly beat the Super Bowl champs in the Divisional Round in 2014, with injuries to star receiver Antonio Brown, Le’veon Bell and Deangelo Williams, and Ben Roethlisberger. They were a fumble from winning the AFC Divisional Round, and knocking off the ultimate Super Bowl champs. This team is absolutely loaded with skill, on both the offensive and defensive side. Pittsburgh’s offense is absolutely stacked, with Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, brand-new tight end Ladarius Green, Le’veon Bell, and Deangelo Williams. Their defense is in fact also excellent, as they were a top 5 run defense last year. They simply need some more people in the secondary, and they can easily end up being genuine Super Bowl contenders.

 

Watch out for Oakland and Kansas City in 2016 AFC West

Oakland Raiders:

 The Oakland Raiders may have gone from among the worst teams in the NFL, to among the top teams in the National Football League. The world saw exactly what the Raiders might do last season, with its electrifying offense led by appealing quarterback Derek Carr, effective runningback Latavius Murray, and stud pass receiver Amari Cooper. They had a big turn-around last season, and now they’re about to get even much better. GM Reggie McKenzie made a big splash in free agency, signing offensive guard Kelechi Osemele from the Ravens, linebacker Bruce Irvin from the Seahawks, and cornerback Sean Smith from the Chiefs. Oakland’s lineup teems with stars, and it’s remarkable to see how this group has  altered a lot in such little time.

Kansas City Chiefs:

The Chiefs made an unbelievable comeback last season, beginning 1-5, and ending the reg season 11-5, then beating the Houston Texans in the Wild Card round, however to lose to New England in the Divisional Round. Still, beginning the season 1-5, then entering the playoffs, with a playoff win? An extraordinary season for Chiefs fans, no doubt. The Chiefs re-signed Tamba Hali, Travis Kelce, Charcandrick West and Spencer Ware, and franchise tagged Eric Berry. Basically, the Chiefs maintained their finest players, which needs to be thought about as an offseason success. With Jamaal Charles returning next season, the Chiefs ought to anticipate consistent success in the league.

Why the Denver Broncos will Disappoint In 2016

We see the defending  Super Bowl champs missing  out on the playoffs and coming in last in the AFC West. Before you say that we must be on drugs, consider  the rest of  the division:

The Kansas City Chiefs   (currently ranked Number 2 in the NFL by the ff-winners.com computer)have ended up being a strong team led by quarterback Alex Smith and their extraordinary defense. Second, the Oakland Raiders have been improving as a young team, and after tons of off season signings, they will be a significant rival this year. Although the San Diego Chargers were just 4-12 last season, they were pestered with injuries. Philip Rivers is one of the league’s premier quarterbacks and the return of Keenan Allan will be very refreshing. Thinking about all this, the Broncos, who have actually lost loads of vital players in free agent, have divisional games that will cause them significant difficulties. The Broncos were led entirely by their defense last year,  but have been broken up this off season. Their two biggest losses are Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan. To top all of it off, having  lost Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler, the Broncos starting quarterback  is Mark Sanchez. They are more likely than not to miss the playoffs and perhaps even finish last in their division.
