All-AFC North Squad (Offense)

A few years back I began doing these as objectively as possible, based on how well I think they'll perform in 2014. Perhaps I missed last year, hmm.

QB: Andy Dalton (Starter), Ben Roethlisberger (2nd string), Joe Flacco (3rd string)

Andy played better than any other QB in the division last year. Flacco may be better with Pitta back but Big Ben gets the nod for the very reason I despise him, he's pretty damn good. Brian Hoyer could be the future for the Browns if they have any inclination to keep their competitive QBs around this offseason.

RB: Gio Bernard (S), Le'Veon Bell (2), Chris Ogbonnaya (3)

Bell thumps harder than Bernard but Gio does hit. Both have a lot of receiving production. The nod goes to Gio for his top end speed and elusiveness. Ogbonnaya is a tough runner with better production than Green-Ellis or Ray Rice when Cleveland actually gets him on the field.

FB: Will Johnson (S)

Sure, he's a fullback.

TE: Jordan Cameron (S), Heath Miller (2), Dennis Pitta (3)

Cameron's amazing stats are made even more so when considering the random QBs he played with last year, and he'll probably get better. Miller earned his spot after another solid year despite major offseason knee rehab. Pitta is better than the yet-unpolished Tyler Eifert, and don't even mention Gresham.

WR: A.J. Green (S), Josh Gordon (S), Antonio Brown (2), Torrey Smith (3)

Gordon may be as good as A.J., he's just not as mature. Brown could be considered better than either starter if his punt return contributions were factored into the decision. With some consistency through this year Marvin Jones has a shot next time around.

T: Joe Thomas (S), Andre Smith (S), Michael Oher (2), Mitchell Shwartz (2)

G: Andrew Whitworth (S), Marshal Yanda (S), David DeCastro (2), Shawn Lauvao (2)

C: Alex Mack (S), Gino Gradkowski (2)

O-line is one of the hardest areas to evaluate from a fan's perspective. My decisions for this list were based on a mixture of offensive success, reputation, instinct, and cool names (like Shwartz).

Now debate, you internet addicts, debate!
