Too early to look forward to 2010? Not at all. Here is my very early look at the 2010 season, and my first rankings. Obviously a lot can change, but here goes.
2.Indianapolis Colts - The best team in the AFC brings back a strong cast, and maybe even safety Bob Sanders gets healthy?
7.San Diego Chargers - Part of me thinks they will take a step back, with the defense facing questions, but they'll run away with that division without really trying.
10.Minnesota Vikings - If quarterback Brett Favre returns, they'll be a playoff team. But it says here that Green Bay gets their number in 2010 regardless of whether No. 4 plays or not.
17.San Francisco 49ers - Nine wins likely wins that division. This is the team to do it. San Francisco will be back in postseason.
24.Jacksonville Jaguars - Very tough division and have to wonder if this is their last season in Jacksonville.
29.Cleveland Browns - This roster has major flaws from the quarterback on down. I do not see that four-game winning streak continuing.
31.Tampa Bay Buccaneers - This is a make or break year for a beleaguered coaching staff that just might break them.
