Who in the NFC concerns you?
I thought we could use a good debate topic to talk about the other NFC teams who may posse a threat to us.

PANTHERS - Anyone else worried about this team? They've won 4 in a row and seem to have gotten their spark back since the declining Newton was benched. These guys always worry me cause every other year they are a playoff team and McCaffrey is on pace to break the all time scrimmage yards of an RB that puts him in rare company with HoF RBs. I'm not sure yet how I feel about this team, but they do worry me being a division rival.

BEARS - We're about to find out how good they really are.

PACKERS - I'm not truly convinced this team is all that great. They are just barely squeaking out games and are so far going through a weak schedule. Rodgers still looks like a mediocre QB as he has looked like for the past 3 years. Their pass defense is improved, but the run defense is weak and teams are not taking complete advantage of this yet.

VIKINGS - Will believe they are a threat when Kirk Cousins actually beats some decent teams.

LIONS - See Vikings. Stafford is that other QB with a horrible record against good teams. I'm not a believer in Patricia's coaching as Detroit has given up a number of blown leads so far this year and made dumb mistakes that cost them games vs Arizona and Kansas City.

SEAHAWKS - They've won 4 out of their 5 games by a combined 8 points. The more I watch them, the less impressed I am. Russell Wilson is having a season similar to the one Randall Cunningham had in 1991 where he was pulling magic week after week with a struggling Eagles offense. Wilson deserves praise for this and is a true MVP candidate, just as Cunningham was back in 1991 (IMO Cunningham was robbed that year for Montana in one of his less stellar seasons). I'm not convinced these guys are for real and wouldn't be shocked if they're completely flattened by a legit team. We were giving them quite a spanking until they scored points in garbage time, and that was a game where Wilson had 0 turnovers, 0 sacks and passed over 400 yards (this is a feat only accomplished some 18 times in NFL history. Wilson and Troy Aikman in a 1998 game vs Minnesota are the two losing QBs in this stat.)

49ERS - This is the team that personally scares me the most and I can see them being a looming threat in the postseason. They look like the most balanced team besides us in the NFC; offense is under-performing a bit but the defense is carrying them. They're also blowing out the teams that Seattle and the Rams struggle with.

Re: Who in the NFC concerns you?
I dont like beating any team capable to facing us in the playoffs.

I would have to say Seahawks is up there.

Seahawks got beat pretty bad against Baltimore. They're an average team. 4 out of 5 wins by a combined 8 points.

Niners looked bad against Washington, but they still concern me the most.

49ers in December and the Pack in the playoffs.
Oh Lord no not the playoffs.

And if Forevers bird could talk he would sound like yours truly.

Hope like hell we don't have to travel to Green Bay for the playoffs.

GB strikes me as a team though who could be one and done by running into the wrong wildcard team that could expose their weak run defense and pressure Rodgers into getting sacked and throwing out of bounds.

I think the Rams could potentially do it, but right now the NFC North's future kinda rests on if the Vikings are for real and their rematch with GB.

Re: Who in the NFC concerns you?
I'm a little worried about the Niners in the Dome but come game time with a couple of Abitas in me, once I get through the metal detector line I'll be fine.

Re: Who in the NFC concerns you?
Honestly, no one. I'm not buying the 49ers as legit. The best team they've played so far is the Rams, who were in the midst of a slump, and simply aren't the same team they've been the last couple of years. They (whiners) only managed to beat Washington 9-0 this past week. They're frauds waiting to be exposed.

Panthers might be tough, but they really don't scare me either.
