Parity has taken over the league, and we are seeing more and more divisions in which all four teams have a shot to take home the title. Though the Baltimore Ravens, Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns all have glaring weaknesses, it's not hard to imagine either team being atop the AFC North standings at the end of December.

But the North does have the dubious distinction of having the most unanswered questions under center. All four teams have issues with their quarterback situation.

In Baltimore, the defending champions were hit with the news that running back Jamal Lewis was indicted on drug charges. With that kind of distraction its good that coach Brian Billick already made the decision in early February to name Kyle Boller the starter going into next season. But Boller was not the best quarterback in Baltimore last year.
