"My" 49ers did incredibly well in the off season. They picked up some great veterans who are still in their prime, and they picked up some interesting draft choices, all without losing much of their "core" team.
The Ravens, on the other hand, lost a lot of key veterans.
But the Jets will be hurting, despite having several interesting quarterbacks. Still, they will receive more media attention than the two Superbowl teams combined.
My Superbowl prediction:
The 49ers will beat the Broncos.
Well you have one of the teams right. But it will be Patriots over 49ers for the big game. At first look they didn't pull any superstars but then when have they. I think your QB will have enough tape on him that DF coordinators are going to give him and his inexperience a real problem.

I'm a big Pats fan, but the loss of Welker is big, and they don't have a replacement. They have great tight ends, but neither will last through the season. I wish they were good, but sorry, they are getting old and they have big holes on both sides of the ball. They'll do okay, but not Superbowl worthy.
I agree. Seahawks were already very good, and they made some great moves (Harvin, Avril, Bennett) in free agency. They're my pick to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. For the AFC, I'm going with Denver.
I liked the Vikings' draft until they traded their 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 7th round picks for the 29th pick, then drafted someone who may very well be the next Troy Williamson, all the while completely ignoring the fact that they have no one on the roster who has any business playing middle LB.

Seahawks lost their D coordinator, the heart of that team. Pete Carrolls gonna dither away into NFL coaching irrelevancy.
I don't have any real long shots, I think SF & GB will remain top teams. I think this will likely be Brady &/or Mannings last real shot at being the guy to lead them to the SB. They'll probably play 2-3 seasons still, but I think it'll need to be with a better team carrying them after this year. Pittsburgh will likely again be an AFC contender.
My biggest out on a limb prediction is that Andy Reid & Chip Kelly will not be coaching their current teams in 2015. I think Andy will be proven to fail in KC, and after 2 tough seasons just step down (nearly forced to), and I think Chip Kelly will also have 2 unsuccessful years & just go back to a big name college.
