ESPN asked a bunch of us ESPN-associated writers which team we picked as the most set up to win from 2014-2016. After consulting with the FO staff, I went with Green Bay, which has a lot of young talent and has younger players in line to replace its most important older players (Shields for Woodson, Nelson for Driver, Sherrod for Clifton). We also thought about the Rams, Patriots, and Bucs, who all get votes from others. John Clayton goes with the team Ben Muth wanted me to pick: "Whoever gets Andrew Luck."
