Default Biggest Surprise & Disappointment Teams?

I think Indianapolis is the biggest surprise team this season considering they start a rookie QB, and their Head Coach is out fighting cancer.

And Kansas City is the biggest disappointment. They were getting the playoff nod by some of the so called experts prior to the season.

What teams would you put in these categories?

I agree that Indy is the suprise team.
The biggest disapointment is that P Manny is playing so well.

Didn't most of the "experts" have us going around 8-8 or less again this season? I know to us the Chargers are disappointments but to the rest of the league it was expected. In regards to Indy, I wonder what that team will be like when Pagano comes back. If Pagano is not really that good of a HC next year, what happens?

Yeah, the Chargers were a borderline average to "barely make it into the play-offs" level team by most.

Them losing to an 0-4 team and a 1-6 team, as well as getting embarrassed by the better teams is the disappointing part. For the picky individuals: yes, losing period is disappointing.

I'm surprised the Bucs aren't better. I thought they would be pretty solid with all of their offensive additions, but they're only 6-7 (although they've had some close losses where they should have won).

And I'm not surprised at all with the Chiefs or Cowboys, they've always been bad teams to me.

Surprises:
Colts
Broncos (didn't they they'd be doing this well)
Reskins
Seahawks

Dissapointments:
Ravens
Saints
Lions
Bills
