Packers will be back in the playoffs. I don't expect much once they get there.

The Skins. That defense is going to be fixed and Campbell is going to surprise everyone. I hear that if Gibbs can't get Briggs, he is going to try to trade up to the Lions to get Calvin Johnson. Imagine a receiving trio of CJ, S. Moss, and ARE with a healthy Portis and Betts running behind the best OL in the NFC East.

49ers have to be considered a sleeper. They finished the season 5-4 last year and have improved there defense (imo there weakness last year) with guys like Clements and Lewis and another year of experience for Gore and Smith should be great. Add that they are in the NFC, sleepers=49ers.

Edit-Though we need some WR help

I like the san francisco pick.

But homer in me says the eagles.
Reasons being...
-andy reid has realised that you are allowed to run more the 30% of the time.
-Mc Nabb will hopefully be healthy
-Kearse will also be healthy, which was more important than we realised.
-Where in the NFC

The Rams.

Cards are installing a new system and where have we heard they will make the playoffs and where have they flashed that brilliance?

Niners- nah they got Clements so what it is still a bad defense.

Micheal Lewis is a tackler and he cant cover so that was a waste of money.

Tully Banta Cain has shown nothing much and is situational pass rusher.

SO go ahead and crown there ass. :wink:

The Rams improved there offence in the area they were bad at: Red Zone offence.


Mcmicheal knows Linehans system and is a good recieving TE soomtheng we habe not had in a while. Bennet 6-5 and good hands. If thats not enogh you have the best reciever in teh game and a 1,000+ guy yo cover.

Miami.... i hope!

But homerism aside i like San Fran, Greenbay, and St. Louis which have all been mentioned. If Tampa Bay gets Calvin Johnson, i could see them as a potential sleeper/Wild-Card team. Carolina could easily get back to the top of the NFC with good QB play from either Delhomme or another player they bring in.

Bills lost McGahee(who wasn't very good to begin with) but improved their O-line. I am pretty sure the Bills will be using more Cover-2 and Mcgee and youboty is an alright CB combo. Buffalo has a great S duo and their team has no real weaknesses besides a nickle/dime CB and a MLB

Agreed 'cept for the Nickel CB comment.

The Bills re-signed veteran CB Kiwaukee Thomas a couple of weeks ago and he is pretty good inside. He has stone hands but he was adequate as a nickel corner last year.
