Only if they also have a decent QB.

The 49ers are as good a team as you can build without an elite QB, and they came up JUST short. And Jimmy G. isn't horrible, he's just OK.

The Chiefs and Texans are about to pay their QBs. The Ravens have one more year until they will. No one else has a young potentially elite QB.

Murray is really good.
I expect AZ to be in the playoffs next year.

KC should lock him in now because the price will only go up once they have more cap.

I wonder how much longer Belichick and Reid end up coaching for. Belichick turns 68 in April. He's #3 all time in coaching wins (regular season), 45 behind George Halas and 55 behind Don Shula. Andy Reid (62 in March) is #7 all time, 6 behind Paul Brown, 19 behind Curly Lambeau, and 43 behind Tom Landry.

Same as always. I'm beginning to wonder if they really are experts.

https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/...offseason-poll
This was posted at 7:10 PM Pacific. So, way way way too early poll imo
There's no such thing as an "expert." These are just people who know how to write well enough to have their job.

NFC Playoffs (not seeded): Cowboys, Saints, Seahawks, Vikings, Bucs, Lions (assuming they draft an impact defender at #3, if not then 49ers)

AFC Playoffs (not seeded): Patriots, Texans, Chiefs, Ravens, Bills, Browns (if new coach can control the locker room, Steelers otherwise)

I think Belichick retires with Brady. No point in going through a rebuild at his age and success, IMO.
I think Reid coaches at least 3 more years. Depends on if KC starts falling off once they have to pay Mahomes. If they stay competing for Super Bowls, I think he sticks around for awhile. Like a Mike McCarthy situation, where he's there while his elite QB is there or until he's fired for not living up to higher expectations.

I'd say that both will continue coaching until their team lets them down one last time . . .

Also . . . what did the experts say last year? How good were those predictions?

That feels like a very bold take. I don't see how the Lions (regardless of their draft pick) do better than all of the Packers, 49ers, Rams, and Eagles.

So same as this year but Browns instead of Titans. That would certainly make me happy!
