Ciarrai are not that far off in many ways but I agree, a defence still not strong enough for Dubs. But one never knows what can happen on the day. Corcaigh showed against you it is possible to do well with a good forward line. Ciarrai and Dun na nGall have great forwards. Tir Eoghain are well organised and hard to beat and are close to Dubs each time and MaighEo are well Maigh Eo and anything goes.
It's not impossible for one of these 4 to do it but it will require Dubs being well off the standard and the others upping it hugely. Putting money on Dubs does look like the easiest money ever won in GAA betting.

I think it's a bit obnoxious to say Kerry/Donegal won't get within 6 points of Dublin on the form they've shown. Take away 2 of those crazy goals we gifted them in 3 minutes and that was really a 6 point loss. Kerry and Donegal are both a solid step up on us, with much tougher sophisticated defences, more composed attacks and solid kick out srategies.

Dublin have always been a side that will demolish teams outside of the top 3 or 4 contenders. When they've met sides in that bracket, it's always been narrow. Mayo, Kerry and Donegal have all proved it when at their best in recent years. Tyrone have never been at that level imho, maybe a big closer to it this year but doubt it.

Something makes me think they'll be caught in the semi by one of them.

Donegal are the main threat to the Dubs.

They had to improvise a new full backline against Kerry and still, Kerry couldn't beat them.

No other county in the country (including Dublin) could do that.

No one will get within 5 points of Dublin this year.

Tyrone, Donegal or Kerry wont be doing it
