AFC North Preview

For anyone starved for Browns or NFL news, John Clayton takes a look at the AFC North Division for the upcoming season. He thinks the Steelers have the edge over their division rivals mostly because of the stability at QB in Tommy Maddox. I agree with his conclusion that the Steelers should win the division, but not with his reasoning. The Steelers are the most talented team in the division overall, but their edge has little to do with the QB position, IMHO. But unless their defensive secondary gets a whole lot better, they are vulnerable to any good passing attack. As for the Browns, I think the defense may be a year away from being good enough to compete with the elite teams.
