Best Team: Houston Texans
Worst Team: Jacksonville Jaguars
The AFC South will start the 2012 NFL season as the worst division in football.
The only team that looks like a playoff-caliber team right now is Houston, and they don't even look like a threat to make a deep playoff run. Losing Mario Williams and Eric Winston in free agency, along with a less-than-impressive draft, will likely make them weaker than they were last season.
The problem with the remaining three teams lies at the quarterback position. With Andrew Luck, Blaine Gabbert and either Jake Locker or Matt Hasselbeck starting for the other teams in the AFC South, they lack the talent at the most important position on the field to be much of a threat.
While the AFC South has plenty of offensive star power with players like Arian Foster, Maurice Jones-Drew and Chris Johnson, there are simply too many holes all over these rosters for them to make any serious noise.
In a few years, especially if Locker, Gabbert and Luck all improve, the AFC South could become one of the better divisions in football. Unfortunately, 2012 will be another down year for the division.
