    Its July so its very early but lets see who can predict the 6 NFC playoff teams ( IN ORDER) and then pull up this thread in January and see who got them right!

    I'll start...

    1.) GB Pack
    2.) Philly Eagles
    3.) Atl Falcons
    4.) Stl Rams
    5.) NO Saints
    6.) TB Bucs

    NFC South.... Very strong this year (minus CAR)
    NFC West.... Very weak....again. I think Bradford will get the Rams in at 8-8.

    1. Packers
    2. Eagles
    3. Faclons
    4. Rams
    5. Saints
    6. Bucs

    Lions should be pretty close to making the playoffs this year, but I still think their secondary is too weak. I almost cried when I had to put the Rams in the playoffs, but I had no choice.

    Edit: Sorry to OP for basically having the same exact list (Not purposely though). I think most people will have a close list because the picture for each division is so clear this year. The NFC East has lost power and the West is the only division that is a real free for all.

    Ok, I will mix it up:

    1. Eagles
    2. Packers
    3. Falcons
    4. Rams
    5. Saints
    6. Bucs

    1. Packers
    2. Falcons
    3. Eagles
    4. Rams
    5. Bucs
    6. Giants

    I think the Giants get back in the playoffs this year and that the Bucs will be the second team in from the NFC South and not the Saints. Saints are getting too old and I their performance in the playoffs is indicitive of things to come. Packers get homefield throughout after finishing 13-3. We win the Super Bowl against the Pats. Repeat baby!

    You know how unlikely it is that three teams from the same division make the playoffs. Is that even possible?

    1) Saints
    2) Packers
    3) Giants
    4) Cardinals
    5) Falcons
    6) Bears

    Have we ever had a dominant regular season under this management? Maybe this is the time we put together, I still think we'll be very good, but the important thing is getting strong late, not early.

    I think the Saints will be the winner in the South, but the Falcons are still strong. The Bears still have one of the best D and ST, though I think it'll be close to impossible for them to not have many injuries. I know I've said in the past that they'll be hard pressed to get above .500, but I think they enter the last spo with a 9-7 or 10-6, because the Lions aren't still that great on the backfield, and the bucs will face a much thougher schedule, even though they'll get better, much like the Dolphins last year.

    The Giants, I think they have the better overall team than the Eagles, and I think the Eagles trade Kolb, and I don't think Vick will be as effective now that he's figured out, and I don't think he'll stay healthy.

    As for the Cardinals, I think they'll be the ones trading for Kolb, and I believe that they have the best team overall in the East.

    Of course, almost nothing will come true...

    Sam Bradford. He broke multiple records this last season. Most were Peyton Mannings records. They are going to be tough this year.

    Rams also had bunch of injuries to their WR's. They will have a better pass game which will help Jackson!

    Peyton went 3-13, and threw 28 INTs his rookie year. Not exactly the rookie campaign you want to emulate.

    It's hard to watch all the Falcons "love" here. You may want to see what free agency does to their O Line before picking them. The conventional wisdom is that they will lose 2 and perhaps 3 of their starters.

    Turner is getting older, and showed signs of slowing down at the end of last season. Gonzo -- well, he's getting old too.

    WR's take time to develop, and the lockout is not going to help Jones.

    Best case scenario for them:

    @ Chicago, L
    Phil L
    @ TB L
    @ Seattle W
    GB L
    CAR W
    @ DET L
    @ IND L
    NO L
    TN W
    MN W
    @ Hou L
    @CAR W
    JAX W
    @ NO L
    TB L

    6 -10. Okay, my hate for all things Atlanta showed through, but I could see them going 4-5 or even 3-6 after their first 9 games.

    To me....6-10 is a stretch. No way they lose to the Saints twice, at Detroit, or at Houston. Very hard to believe they will go 2-4 in their division. The Falcons are a decent team.

    Yeah, 6-10 is my hommeristic dream. I do, however, take issue with statements that there is "no way" Atlanta loses twice to NO, or to Houston or to Detroit. You never know.
