I'm not sure what point you're trying to make by saying it isn't up to me. Obviously I have nothing to do with who finishes where in the division, nor do I recall ever making such a statement.
At the end of the season if I'm wrong, I'll be the FIRST person to call myself stupid for predicting that but I have the right to make that prediction same as you have the right to yours. I stated in several posts I wasn't super confident about it but was gonna take a chance. The brownies are getting better and that is the way I see it. I also provided several examples of teams that turned it around quite quickly so it wouldn't be unheard of.

I do think he'll have a decent career but even as I say that I could just as easily see it not working out. The line between success and failure in the NFL is so razor thin it is tough to give a definitive answer at this point.

I like the browns to finish ahead of the Ravens because i think the ravens gave up too many veterans
If the Browns and Ravens is always a tough game. Both cities hate each other, the teams don't like each other. They are basically one in the same, which makes it a game where they beat the hell out of each other. If the Browns can get some momentum there's no reason they can't steal one from the Ravens.
I'm taking the brown's second. Flacco is playing like a growth retarded Vinny Testaverde look alike. They dropped both Mason and Heap who played well against the steelers. My son's HS offense is more sophisticated than the ravens.
We'll find out soon enough how the AFC North will shake out, starting this weekend. The winner this weekend by no means determines the overall divisional winner but they'll certainly have an advantage being the chasee instead of the chaser in the race early.
Those game against the Browns late in year are going to be so crucial, because nobody ever runs away with the division in the AFC North. If I remember right, both Baltimore and Pittsburgh finished with identical records the last 2 seasons. Wouldn't surprise me one bit to be similar circumstances in 2011.
This is the first time the Browns fans have had any realistic hope of having an improved team with a future to look forward too. Holmgren will build them a good team, he'll find good players. He's used to coaching in a tough division with big time rivalries and knows the importance of winning those types of games.
They still aren't there yet but in the next fews the Browns could very well take over the Ravens spot as the 2nd team in this division.
