How Herm Edwards stacks the division right now

Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky
Chatted early Wednesday with Herm Edwards -- the former Jets and Chiefs coach sure sounds like he is enjoying life as an ESPN analyst.

I took the opportunity to ask him how he'd handicap the AFC South right now based on how they did last season and what they've done to their rosters so far.

He couldn't break from stacking the division the same way it wound up in 2008:


"I'd probably put Tennessee at the top right now because of Jeff Fisher, he's an established guy over there," Edwards said. "Tennessee, I think, is going to be good. Then Indy, Houston and Jacksonville. That's how I look at it.""

But Edwards said he could see the division doing what it did in 2007, when it sent three teams to the playoffs.

"I think Houston might do something for some reason, I think they are about ready," he said. "If they can do something on defense, I think they'll be pretty good. They're close. I think this is a big year for them. If they can shore up their defense, they are pretty good on offense."
