Go to the link for all the teams. Here's the AFCW

http://www.theonion.com/articles/onion-sports-2010-nfl-teambyteam-guide,18023/?slide=4

Denver Broncos

Strength: Excellent cornerbacks and safeties will provide sure tackling of running backs who are eluding the defensive front seven and rushing untouched into the secondary

Weakness: Keep trading for other teams' shitty quarterbacks

Player To Watch: Brady Quinn should have an interesting year, as he has been vigorously studying the Denver phone book

Intangibles: Whole team is going to see Phil Lesh and Bob Weir at Red Rocks after its week-three loss to the Colts


Oakland Raiders

Strength: Just nice to see them outside getting some fresh air

Weakness: As a team, every single player on this roster fucking sucks

Player To Watch: Quarterback Jason Campbell is an experienced loser and is not going to mope around and act all depressed when team loses eight or nine straight games

Biggest Question: If Tom Cable isn't fired during or after the season, will Al Davis get rid of him by drowning him in the Gatorade container?

San Diego Chargers

Strength: Unmatched at dominating the competition all season long and then dramatically losing in their first playoff game

Weakness: Nate Kaeding purposely kicks field goals wide right or left, as he hates football

Intangibles: Injuries on both sides of the ball continue to hurt the Chargers as players get stabbed with the points or slam the wide part into their faces

Biggest Question: Is this the year Shaun Phillips and Shawne Merriman get a consistent spelling on their first names?

Kansas City Chiefs

Strength: Quarterback Matt Cassel feels satisfied whether receivers catch or drop his passes; easy schedule as team plays seven games in the CFL this season

Weakness: Offense continues to struggle when trying to huddle up, with most of the players being overpowered and ending up on the ground

Player To Watch: In need of a solid season to become a potential holdout, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe is finally trying a little

Biggest Question: Will new offensive coordinator Charlie Weis actually explode after a big lunch?

Is he sure he didn't confuse teams here?That's exactly what I thought.

Technically we didn't trade for a QB this year. But still...

ROFL

New England Patriots

http://o.onionstatic.com/images/articles/article/17988/New-England-Patriots_jpg_600x1000_q85.jpg

Strength: Bill Belichick has avoided stealing any wives recently, so he should be focused on the 2010 season; people are sure to tout the Patriots' experience and maturity as opposed to flat-out calling them old
Weakness: Considering the talent of this year's rookie class, it's a shame that Belichick will once more work one of them until he dies
Intangibles: Can't discount the possibility of another horrific injury to quarterback Tom Brady; oh, please, Lord, let there be another horrific injury to Tom Brady
Biggest Question: This may be the year New England finally falls out of contention, but we know full well these fucks will pull a 12-4 season out of their ass somehow

God, there are some real gems here. The poor Bills mgiht be the best one fo them all.

AFC East

Buffalo Bills

http://o.onionstatic.com/images/articles/article/17988/Buffalo-Bills_jpg_600x1000_q85.jpg

Strength: Buffalo is well-known for its friendly locals, its world-famous wings, and its proximity to beautiful Niagara Falls
Weakness: Once again pretty much centers around the entire roster
Player To Watch: Starting quarterback Trent Edwards. Wait, him again? God, these guys are so fucked
Intangibles: The AFC East is, perhaps, the league's most talented division, making it the most respectable division to finish last in

Weakness: Quarterback controversy between Luke McCown and David Garrard has coaches wondering if they should even have a quarterback at allThat's my only gripe. Some of these comments apply to a bunch of teams. Hell, even the fat coach schtick was used on both Charlie Weis and Rex Ryan.
