The chargers have been a disappointment while the cardinals have been a big surprise.

I can't say disappointment because I'm glad to see they're losing, but the Browns were expected to have a better year than they did. Same for the Chargers, Cowboys, Jaguars and Saints. Didn't expect the Lions to set the world on fire, but I would've never thought 0-14 either.

Surprises. Dolphins, Falcons, Titans in that order. Not really all that surprised by the Cardinals. Doing well offensively as you'd expect, but look at how many points they've allowed. So they still don't have it together defensively. Put them in a different division and they'd have a worse record.

The Steelers are a bit of both for me. Prior to the regular season, I was thinking 10-6 a best. They've already exceeded that by one win. But I'm still disappointed in their offense. The line is playing poorly and with the exception of Hines Ward, the receivers have hands of stone.

Disappointment - Jags, were supposed to be SupreBowl contenders this year.

Surprise - Titans, that undefeated streak was totally unexpected given the change of QB very early in the year.

Surprise- Ravens, Falcons
Disappointment- Chargers, though they still have a slim chance.

The Titans were in the playoffs last year, the Raiders? Whats unusual about that?

The Jags are a disappointment as well.

Falcons- Biggest surprise a whole new crew in town with a rook QB.. Chargers have the worst coach in the league I wouldn't say them... I would say the Jag's good coach and team but just a poor performance all year long..

Disappointment - Browns, Jaguars, and Saints. I shy away from adding the Chargers to the list because I never thought them to be a playoff team this year. LT is way over rated, and always starts slow because in my mind, he does not play in pre-season.

Surprise - Dolphins, Falcons, Panthers, and Patriots. Who would have ever thought the Pats would be in a 3 way tie at the top of the division with starting a QB that had not started a game since high school.

agree with these and i'll throw the dolphins in as a surprise team as well.

i doubt anyone picked any of those 3 teams to win more than 5 games.

Surprises = Falcons, Titans

Disappointments = Packers, Jaguars, Chargers and as a Bear fan, the Bears. Losing to Atlanta after scoring a go ahead TD with 11 seconds left was inexcusable and will probably keep them out of the playoffs.
