Looks the qb position might be up for discussion in about a week and a half, but I agree with the rest for the most part.

Also, its pretty funny The browns only have one position. Their coaches might take that spot in a few years though.

So as the title says, what teams are the best at what positions in the north?

QB- Steelers ( But not by that much) - Ben has the hardware to back this up. Some may argue that the Steelers D more so than Ben and his horrible performaces leading to those SBs. But he was still the QB and should get credit. Sometimes at work your supervisor get credit for the work other in the office puts in.

RBs- Ravens Rice does it all. Running, catching and pass blocking. Watch out for Pierce! He is a productive bruiser with deceptive speed. My gut will become the feature back in a year or two.

WRs- Ravens (AJ is the best WR in the Div) but I don't believe the Bengals WR depth is as good as the Ravens. Mike Wallace and Antonio Brown crashed down to earth.

OL- Browns - Theyve given up the fewest sacks and have talent with with Thomas, Mack

TEs- Steelers - Miller is a Beast! He does so much within the Steelers Offense. Now a days its harder and harder to find TEs that are good at both blocking and catching....Hope he recovers.

DL- Bengals- Hands down that line of the Bengals was hard to run on and getting after the QB.

LBs- Steelers Ravens were killed by injuries to most of their LB corps. Bengals got a steal with Burfit.But Rey has to go. He is terriBAD! He is horrible in pass coverage, slow to the ball. I wonder how things will shake up this offseason Lamarr Woodley is an overweight walking hamstring injury, Harrison is not the same after numerous injuries. Ray Lewis is retiring, can Suggs get back in form?

DBs- Ravens

Special teams- Bengals

Coaching- Steelers

Just my opinions, what are yours?

WRs- BENGALS

OL- BENGALS/STEELERS

TEs- STEELERS

DL- BENGALS

LBs- STEELERS

DBs- BENGALS

Special teams- BENGALS

I hated typing those other teams, but I do believe I was objective. Except for giving that team up north there any credit whatsoever.

QB - Steelers. Even with depth.

RB - Ravens. I love what the Browns are going for, but Ravens still have it better.

WR - Ravens. Boldin is a great player opposite of Smith. They compliment very well. Bengals still need someone to step up next to Green

TE - Steelers. I love Gresham, but Steelers by a slight edge. Next year will help indicate which is better

OL - Browns. Easily the Browns.

DL - Bengals

LB - This is honestly the toughest IMO. Steelers LBs are good, but seem to have lost a step. Ravens are losing Ray this year, and I think it will hurt them a lot (just a feeling). Bengals have Rey as a starter (nuff said). Browns have some decent LB talent. But I will have to go with the Steelers. But this one position could very much change next season.

DB - Steelers/Bengals. What? No Ravens? The Steelers and Bengals numbers are very identical, but the Bengals have given up less passing TDs than the Steelers, and one more than the Ravens. But also has one more INT than the Ravens. But you can't ignore the Steelers having the best pass defense in the NFL.

Special Teams - Bengals. Love Jacoby Ford, but Bengals have a better overall special teams

Coaching - Steelers. John Harbaugh is good, as is Mike Zimmer, and Norv Turner is a very good hire by the Browns, but Steelers have a better coaching roster.

QB - Steelers. I know many might say Ravens here, but to me Bert hasn't really shown himself to be all that great.

RB - Ravens

WR - Ravens

TE - Steelers, you can't argue with Heath.

OL - Browns

DL - Bengals

LB - Steelers, though I have some doubt these days.

DB - Steelers

Special Teams - Bengals

Coaching - This may be a little bias, but Steelers.

I believe you can argue with Heath.

Miller - 30

164 receptions
1959 yards
12 TD's


Gresham -24

172 receptions
1803 yards
15 TD's

Gresham has only played 3 years and these are Miller's last 3 years and that includes the best year of his career, which was last year. Gresham is also improving statistically each year and Miller might not be able to come back at 100%...


Edit: They need to add the damn tags to this sub-forum so we can bold and quote properly.

I haven't seen too much of Gresham. While his numbers compare, does he block as well as Heath?

No, but he is improving. He is steadily becoming a pretty damn good TE minus the occasional dropped first down.

I messaged Bengals_Moderator about this problem, but he probably get's a lot of messages and didn't get to it yet, or he's working on it and it's a long process, either way looks like we'll just have to deal with this for a while.

Update. He messaged me back and said everything should be fixed so here is the test post.

EDIT: It works

Bengals will take the receivers spot with everyone coming back healthy. This should raise Dawtons stock as well and hopefully freeing up Green to get more passes.
