On Friday I posted Sportmentary.com's 2014 AFC predictions and today I'm are sharing my NFC predictions. Some of my picks may not be popular or follow conventional wisdom but they are my mine and I own them. We'll have to go through a full 2014 campaign to see if my picks hold the mustard.
This post also includes my Super Bowl pick!
Vote for who you think will win the NFC at the Bottom of this page.
NFC East - One Trick Pony.
1. Philadelphia Eagles (11-5) - The Eagles will be in front of the NFC East's class this season.
2. New York Giants (9-7) - The Giants pre-season record will not be indicative of how they will do in the regular season. I can't see them doing any better than 9-7. Will that be good enough to be a Wild Card team? You'll have to read the rest of the article to find out.
3. Dallas Cowboys (8-8) - The 2014 campaign will leave Jerry Jones making the case for expanded playoffs and the necessity of adding two more teams to the playoffs.
4. Washington Football Team (7-9) - Washington will start the season 2-0 but will see them succumb to the rest of the schedule and having another disappointing season.
NFC North - It's all about cheese in this division.
1. Green Bay Packers (11-5) - Green Bay won't have much of a competition for the top spot in the Snorris.
2. Minnesota Vikings (9-7) - Many people aren't sold on the Vikings. The Vikes had some nail biters last season and had the team had a credible coaching staff that didn't mortgage the season on Christian Ponder, the Vikings could have had a winning season.
3. Chicago Bears (7-9) - Cutler will be Cutler and that means throwing interceptions and getting injured. They should have kept that backup, you know his name...Oh yeah, his name is Josh McCown.
4. Detroit Lions (5-11) - My oh my, this will be a typical season for the kitties.
NFC South - Sizzling
1. New Orleans Saints (13-3) - The Saints will regain some of the glory they saw a few seasons ago.
2. Carolina Panthers (11-5) - The Panthers will make the race for the top spot in the south an exciting one.
3. Tampa Bay (4-12) - The only competitive part of this season for the Bucs will be their battle with Atlanta for the 3rd spot in the division.
4. Atlanta Falcons (3-13) - The Falcons will make Hotlanta very cold and will lose just about everything, including the battle for third spot in the division.
NFC West - Most competitive division in the NFC
1. Seattle Seahawks (13-3) - The Hawks will be looking in their rear view mirror once again.
2. San Francisco 49ers (11-5) - Despite some setbacks on defense with a couple of players enjoying the criminal life instead of the NFL life, the team will still be good enough for the second seed in the West.
3. St. Louis Rams (8-8) - The loss of Bradford will be too much for the Rams to overcome but the defense will keep this team competitive.
4. Arizona Cardinals (4-12) - Where is Dennis when you need him for a laugh or two.
NFC Wild Card Teams - Carolina & San Francisco.
NFC Champions - Seattle Seahawks over New Orleans Saints.
Super Bowl Champions - New England Patriots over Seattle Seahawks.
