My early prediction of the NFC division winners
 
NFC North-I'm torn on this but I feel the team that is really due is Detroit. Its easy to adjust in the offseason on close losses to overachieving teams and they certainly pulled their weight trying to beat the legit ones. I feel the bears have an identity problem(Is it Cutler's or Urlacher's team?) and the packers are due for a off year. The vikings? AP isnt giving them enough wins for a division title. I think if their qb is able to deal with the pressure, the bears could be a factor but I'm giving Detroit the edge over the packers.

NFC West-It won't be SF!!! Its going to be between Seattle due to Qwest and the team who is pulling a "colts" in the cards. Rookie qbs/1st year starters are hard to figure out for many teams. And Hoyer or Barkley, the cards will fly under the radar next year and steal wins just like Seattle did this past year as well as SF. it also helps they are a west coast team which will make the loss of Wilson not that bad upon improved qb play. I'm saying Seattle takes it though. There is no bad team on the 49ers schedule next year except two and they are on the road and 49ers qb CK may be the next Tannehill/Cam the titans go all in on. With that kind of schedule and a hard fought season for nothing I just don't think they go all out at least next year. But overall they are the class of the division.

NFC East-The sb is in the meadowlands, no giants. The redskins already just won the division. This is between Dallas and Philadelphia. Worst to first is common in this league. Philadelphia has a new coach, and with a new mentality its possible Vick will bounce back for one last run. Dallas brought in Monte Kiffen. Eagles though have two teams they got swept by last year and its a payback division. Dallas just has the skins as they can't seem to shake off the giants in their stadium and just swept the eagles. Its a toss-up to me on who will win because both teams have flaws. But because of the coaching change and recent trends of worst to first, I'm going Philadelphia.

The south is obviously between us and the falcons.

None of those teams personally scare me except Seattle and we will get a sneak preview of them if we have to travel.

That's a pretty bold pick for the NFC North considering Detroit was 0-6 in the division this season. You're a better man then I am, WillSaints81, :mrgreen:. My predictions:

NFC North - Minnesota Vikings ... Cutler's a headcase, the Pack falls back & who knows wtf the Lions have up their sleeves.

NFC West - San Francisco ... Seattle keeps it interesting, Arizona & St. Louis bring up the rear, again.

NFC East - Washington (with RGIII) ... without RGIII, the New York Football Giants win the East.

NFC South - New Orleans ... Payton is back & the natural order of things in the NFC South is restored.

Sooner than later we will win a playoff game on the road.

The NFC North is a tough division to predict right now.

all 4 teams can make a case to win the division.

although now I dont believe for a minute that Washington will win the East.

Dont be surprised if San Fransisco falls off behind Seattle or possibly even St Louis which is up and coming.

I don't see how anyone can pick Minni over Green Bay or Chicago

Minnesota prolly wont because we all know AP wont repeat that success.

Minnesota and Atlanta last season was simply nothing more than products of a weak schedule.

Man I don't even see that.
It's belongs to Green Bay and Chicago can take it if they choose...
The rest are just there to fill spots

IMO the NFC East is closer

Yeah, GB is the perennial favorite, but I think losing Woodson is gonna' be the-straw-that-breaks-that-camel's-back. They just don't look as intimidating to me as in years past. It's kinda' the same with Chicago, Urlacher ain't who he used to be, Cutler's a hot-head & their offensive line is weak. If the Lions go after F/A safety Doshon Goldson (SF) instead of Reggie Bush (MIA) & draft Dee Milinar (AL) or Barkevious Mingo (LSU) with the 5th pick of the first round, then I'd pick them to win the NFC North, but they're gonna' use up all their resources chasing Reggie Bush and miss a golden opportunity to fix the defense.

That leaves Minnesota, with two picks in the first round to pick up someone to replace Percy Harvin, a good defense, a good running game and a QB that can manage a game. They surprised me last season & I think they'll do it again.

I'm writing Dallas & Philly off in the East. If RGIII isn't healthy, I write off Washington as well.
