Based on what you know right now.
The old "It's to early to make any predictions" is not acceptable.
Man up! Go for it!

1. AFC. for one reason:
- Quarterbacks. Manning, Brady, Roethlisberger, Rivers versus Brees, Warner, Romo, Manning jr, McNabb and Cutler. The elite afc team qbs are better that the one elite (Brees) and other very good NFC qbs. Otherwise, I see the leagues as being nearly equal in all respects.
- NFC N - Minnesota, Chicago, Green Bay, Detroit
- NFC S - New Orleans, Atlanta, Carolina, Tampa Bay
- NFC E - Philadelphia, New Jersey A, Dallas, Washington
- NFC W - Seattle, Arizona, San Francisco, St. Louis
- AFC N - Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cincinnatti, Cleveland
- AFC S - Indianapolis, Tennessee, Houston, Jacksonville
- AFC E - New England, Miami, Buffalo, New Jersey B
- AFC W - San Diego, Oakland, Kansas City, Denver
I like more NFC teams and enjoy watching NFC games more than AFC games. A couple years ago it wasn't even close with how much better the AFC was but they're pretty even now. I would say the NFC is better because there are more good running backs, quarter backs and teams. There are more teams in the NFC that have a chance of winning a superbowl than in the AFC as well.
1. NFC east
2. AFC south
3. NFC south
4. AFC north
5. AFC east
6. NFC north
7. AFC west
8. NFC west
Agree for that reason mainly. The coaches are also a big reason. Belecheat, Dungy(now Caldwell), Fisher, and now even Harbaugh are better than the best of the NFC, Reid and Coughlin.
- NFC N - Minnesota, Green Bay, Chicago, Detroit
- NFC S - New Orleans, Carolina, Atlanta, Tampa Bay
- NFC E - Philadelphia, Jersey A, Dallas, Washington
- NFC W - Seattle, Arizona, San Francisco, St. Louis(sad, but probable)
- AFC N - Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Cleveland, Cincinnati
- AFC S - Indianapolis, Houston, Tennessee, Jacksonville
- AFC E - New England, Buffalo, Miami, Jersey B
- AFC W - San Diego, Kansas City, Denver, Oakland
That's right, I'm calling Houston's first playoffs ever.
IMO, the elite teams are the Steelers, Patriots, Giants, & Colts. The near-elite teams are the Eagles, Chargers, Ravens, Titans, Cardinals & Panthers. Looking at those teams, I think the AFC is still the stronger Conference. As for the divisions.....
1. NFC-E - Their best & worst teams are better than the best & worst of any other division.
2. AFC-S - The Colts & Titans can play with any NFL team, and the Texans & Jags are both rising quickly.
3. AFC-N - SB Champs and the Ravens w/ a QB.....solid combo.
4. AFC-E - The Pats are still the Pats, and the Dolphins are NOT the Dolphins. #3 and #4 could be swapped easily.
5. NFC-S - No elite teams, but no duds either. And I still think the Panthers could contend for the SB this year.
6. NFC-N - The top 3 are all decent teams, but the Lions are really dragging this division down.
7. NFC-W - The Cards aren't as good as they showed last year; the Hawks aren't as bad as they showed last year; and the Whiners and Rams.......well, hopefully one of them is getting better this year.
8. AFC-W - The Chargers are a good team, even with an outdated LT. But the rest of that division are in for some big time struggles."Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod

never ranked the divisions by strength, so here goes (based off of last years play and moves made/not made in the offseason)
- afc east - brady is back, dolphins are better, jets underwent an over haul, and the bills, if they can get past jaurons coaching could be decent
- nfc east - philly looks strong, the skins added the monster haynesworth, the gints - who knows? all depends on manning jr, cowboys will be done in by bad coaching and an idiot qb
- afc south - titans lost haynesworth which is why the afcs isnt #1 overall, like the colts, but major changes to the coaching staff make me wonder a bit, the texans could be good, but they still havent learned how to "win" yet, jville is a sorry franchise imo
- afc north - SB champions and a hardcore ravens team dominate, the other two teams are a joke
- nfc south - Like NO rebuilding its D, resurgent falcons led by turner, decent carolina, not sure what to make out of tampa bay
- nfc north - vikes and peterson class of the division, chicago apparently has a qb, green bay will falter due to defensive shift to 3-4 (capers sux) and the lions... 'nuff said
- nfc west - gotta give it the n-w over the a-w, they had a SB team, be intersting to see if hasselback can ever go a full season again, and if singletary can get the 9ers rolling, rams i have i hopes for, but new coach - they either sink or swim on his strengths/weaknesses
- afc west - san diego is the only good team in the div, but oakland might suprise, they probably wont, denver is a mess, and the chiefs could be decent, if they can protect the new qb
QBs: Palmer, Brees 1 and 2 AFC
Cutler, Rogers 1 and 2 NFC
Miami, N. England, Beef-alo(*), Jets
Bolts, KC, Denver, Raiders
Pitts, Bangles, Ravens, Browns
Titians, Houston, Dolts, Jags
Eagles, Washington, Dallas, Gaints
Hawks, Rams, Frisko, Cards

Carolina, New Orlean, Atlanta, Tampa Bay

as for Brees, he now plays in the NFC, for the Saints.

Sorry was thinking Rivers--but wrote Brees
But Yes Carson Palmer I think will light up the AFC
Normally, I would say Brady, but i think he will have a slow start and not be at 100% till game 6. P. Manning I think the opposite will happen--start with a bang and end in a thud around game 5 or maybe game 7 when other teams catch on to their scheme
The Reason for C. Palmer is that the Bangles have no defense to speak of...and really don't have much of a ground game--which leaves throwing the ball--A LOT! He sits behind a respectable offensive line--is a talented QB and can use all the the other skill positions as targets.
With the Ravens--well there team is getting old and think they will start to struggle on defense 4 games in. Its only because of the Pittsburge D is why I think they will take the division.
Titans well Vince aside they are solid and consistent on Offense and have a darn good defense. The Bears--well they finally got a QB and are balanced on both side of the ball...ebing able to bulgen with the run forcing a committement to stop the run and strike over the top with medium to deep passes
I really don't see the Rams finishing last in the West. Division winners!!!!
a team from the NfC will win the superbowl
NFC east dallas divison winner - got rid of TO so they willl be much better
AFC east patriots divison winner- got brady back
AFC north steelers divison winner champ until somone knocks them off
AFC south Colts very close race- manning will be back and healthy
NFC west contary to popular belief our divison is very strong, we have the NfC champ cardinals and and improving teams in the RAMS and seahwaks,
NFC south falcons a very complete offense
AFC west chargers got this divison locked up LT will have a big year
NFC north bears will win this divison, only because someone has to win it
