Which 6 playoff teams won't be back next year?

37 posts in this topic

Since 1998, an average of 6.14 playoff teams did not return the following year.
Of course I hope the Panthers are one of the ones that make it in next year that didn't make it this year.
Six teams seems like an awful lot.
Like any other guessing game I don't have a lot of rhyme or reason but my guesses to NOT repeat are:

Ravens: No RayRay, Reed is getting older, Suggs is damaged goods
Vikings: AP cannot repeat this success and Ponder throws like a girl
Redskins: I am very worried that RG3 has a torn CL and getting 1600 out of Morris seems flukey
Falcons: I hate the Falcons, what can I say?
49ers: Something about the QB controversy has me spooked
Bengals: Dalton sux

49ers are my "shock" pick. At least 1 team has got to really surprise everyone. Who would have thought the Lions or Steelers would not have made the playoff this year.
But I get it.

These Tems didn't make it this year. I don't see them getting in next year.

At 7-9 this year. Team in Salary Cap Hell, having to get rid of veterans and replace with rookie draft pics. Sean Payton coming back for the Saints. I'd say Carolina Panthers will miss the Playoffs again.
I don't see KC Chiefs getting that good all of a sudden.
Same for the Raiders.
Same for the Jags. However they have the biggest cushion in the cap if they want to spend money in FA.

Of the teams that made it tihs year:
I'd say the Bengals will miss the playoffs next year. Ravens may not be as good as they have been in years past. I think the Steelers will be better. Bengals will miss it next year.

49ers may have a fight on their hands it the Seahawks are as good as they were this year! But they both will likely make it, one as a wildard again.

Colts are pretty bad who fluked with an awful schedule and a sick head coach. They won't be back.

The Bengals won't be back a long with the Vikings, Texans, and the Redskins.

I have no problem saying the Colts will not be back next year. And then let's see if the media jumps all over Luck for a sophomore slump.

I just hope the Colts and Skins don't make it next year, and I don't think they will.

Baltimore
Washington
Minnesota
Cincinnati
San Francisco

I think the rest are in, so I give you 5 :)

Colts are just going to improve IMO
Seattle looks like a solid young radiply improving team (although well see in Marshawn can put up te same numbers next year)
Atlanta's here to stay unfortunately
Along with New England, Houston, Denver and Green Bay

In order of least likely to return to most likely:

Colts
Vikings
Redskins (especially if the injury to RG3 turns out worse than expected and/or he has recurring problems)
Bengals
Baltimore
Green Bay (gut feeling, the Bears FINALLY get it done next year and win the division)

Bonus points: the divisions with 2 teams will be the NFCS, NFCW, AFCE, and AFCW
