According to Pittsburgh newspapers, at the NFL owners meetings, Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was asked who should be favored to win the division next season. He picked the Ravens.

"You have to like Baltimore. They won 11 games last year with a rookie head coach and a rookie quarterback. They have a good football team. They have a great defense, they have a quarterback who proved he's their quarterback of the future, he's a guy on the rise. You have to respect that."
So my immediate question: What kind of game is Tomlin playing? Don't trust his poker face for a second. The defending Super Bowl champs beat the Ravens three times last season and they'll start next season as division favorites.

His track record as a sports prognosticator isn't too hot. For what it's worth, Tomlin's pick to win the AFC North before last season: the Cleveland Browns.

(Another AFC North coach hasn't swallowed quite as much purple Kool-Aid as Tomlin. Bengals coach Marvin Lewis picked the Steelers: "They're world champions, they're division champions, so they've got to be the team to beat and Baltimore's probably a close second.")

Tomlin is a coach. It's what they do. It's a way to motivate his own players so they don't have a post championship slump which many championship teams go through the year after. I am certainly not going to make any predictions now. We have a hwole draft to go, training camps to evaluate folks, talk to me in August.
