In response to wozzy's comment:
The Dolphins have improved a lot, they've had the best draft so far at need positions. Dion Jordan is a monster of a pass rusher, Jamar Taylor was probably the 2nd best corner after Trufant, Will Davis is another solid corner and Dallas Thomas a good swing tackle prospect. It's likely they still make a deal for Brandon Albert with KC which means they've shored up their biggest weaknesses.
Bills actually got two good receivers, one big and one slot in Woods and Goodwin. Kiko Alonso is a real good inside linebacker prospect. EJ Manuel is getting a lot of flack but he was a decent game manager and may be able to make some noise with their new weapons.
Jets still stink...
Pats still the class of the AFC East but the Phins are going to make it a challenge.
Agree about miami..big potential.
But it will be a big project down there in Miami, getting all those parts to play well together, may take some time. Highest potential for their defense is a really good matchup against the NE offense and to be one of the handfull of teams that can slow the NE offense down. However, don't see thier offense being able to move that much forward from last year. They may need half the season to get on track, might be too late to catch NE by then but don't count them out as a wild card.
Think EJ Manuel will need a season to find consistancy in the NFL, Buffalo will take very small step back next year.
Jets will not be as bad as everyone thinks if they can get rid of 'Chez early. This guy is an interception/fumble machine at the worst time in games, they stuck with him way too long.
