2014 AFC SOUTH PREVIEW

This is the weakest division in the NFL. The Colts will win it, it’s just by how many games. Andrew Luck has been good for the last few years, watch for him to really show his true colours this year.

Here is a preview of the four teams from the AFC South:

Indianapolis Colts

Coach: Chuck Pagano

Stadium: Lucas Oil Stadium 

The Colts have certainly tapped into the right well. They haven’t just struck gold or oil. They’ve got something better. They’ve struck Luck. His poise is incredible and he is also poised for an incredible year. Their owner was arrested in the offseason, but whether or not he should have been, is all Irsay. There used to be some guy called Manning who played at this club apparently. Indy will be playing deep into January and who knows, February may even be around the corner. Obviously it is, but you know what I mean. 

Key losses: RB Donald Brown, FS Antoine Bethea, OT Jeff Linkenbach, LB Kavell Conner, G Mike McGlynn, WR Darrius Heyward-Bey, CB Cassius Vaughn  

Key signings: DL Arthur Jones, WR Hakeem Nicks, LB D’Qwell Jackson

 Colts

Tennessee Titans

Coach: Ken Whisenhunt

Stadium: LP Field 

A very wise choice with the new coach. Whisenhunt has worked with some incredible Quarterbacks in the past and let’s hope he can work wonders again. If he can’t, Jake will be back in the Locker room very quickly. The Titans have been a very strange team over the past few seasons. They are there when they shouldn’t be in the mix. They can look simply incredible one week and then look like the Nashville Numbats the next. Hang in Titans fans, you’re in a weak division and this year will really be a ‘choose your own adventure’ year.  

Key losses: RB Chris Johnson, CB Alterraun Verner, OT David Stewart, PK Rob Bironas, WR Kenny Britt 

Key signings: LB Wesley Woodyard, OT Michael Oher, LB Shaun Phillips, RB/PR Dexter McCluster, RB Bishop Sankey, OT Taylor Lewan

 Titans

Jacksonville Jaguars 

Coach: Gus Bradley

Stadium: EverBank Field 

Ding Dong the Gabbert’s dead. What a spectacular failure. It’s been a while between celebration drinks but there is definite hope. Toby Gerhart is a great signing. A fit and healthy Luke Joeckel will make a monstrous difference. Blake Bortles is a genuine franchise Quarterback. When I say franchise, I’m not completely sure if I mean McDonalds or Jack in the Box, or somewhere in between. The Jaguars will begin moving up the ladder this year and the future is very bright for this team. 

Key losses: RB Maurice Jones-Drew, QB Blaine Gabbert, C Brad Meester, DE Jason Babin, LB Russell Allen 

Key signings: Rookie QB Blake Bortles, RB Toby Gerhart, G Zane Beadles, DERed Bryant, DE Chris Clemons, DT Ziggy Hood, LB Dekoda Watson

 Jaguars

Houston Texans 

Coach: Bill O’Brien

Stadium: NRG Stadium 

I picked the Texans to be in the Super Bowl last year. That went well for me…They drink Fosters beer in Australia and every Texan fan hopes Arian Foster is going to be the toast of this town again. Cirque de Soleil can’t even compete with some of the freaks in this team. J.J Watt is superhuman and Jadeveon Clowney has genuinely scary speed and size. When you get married you need something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue. Ryan Fitzpatrick is all off these! Will the Texans fans say “I do”?

Key losses: QB Matt Schaub, TE Owen Daniels, RB Ben Tate, DT Earl Mitchell, DE Antonio Smith, SDanieal Manning, CB Brice McCain, LB Darryl Sharpton, LB Joe Mays, QB T.J. Yates

Key arrivals: Rookie LB Jadeveon Clowney, QB Ryan Fitzpatrick, S Kendrick Lewis, DT Jerrell Powe, Rookie NT Louis Nix III
