NFC North 2012 Predictions
by DC Insider Rick Bennett


Green Bay Packers:
2011 Record: 15-1

- The Packers were definitely the "regular season champions" in 2011, but failed spectacularly in the playoffs against the Giants. League MVP Aaron Rodgers obviously returns to the team to head a dangerous passing attack with multiple quality receivers already in the fold. 2nd year man Randall Cobb also figures to see the field more on offense and they'll need him to help replace the production of departed TE Jermichael Finley and veteran WR Donald Driver. The Packers also picked up Jared Gaither to protect Rodgers blind side. The defense is still the greatest area of concern. BJ Raji and Clay Matthews had down years in 2011 and will need to pick it up to be productive again in 2012. First round pick OLB Nick Perry should help, but questions still remain in their secondary where Charles Woodson is another year older and the team did nothing to upgrade their safeties who struggled in 2011.

2012 Prediction: 13-3 - 15-1 will be hard to duplicate, especially if the defense fails to improve drastically. As long as their key players stay healthy though, the Packers should be in contention for NFC homefield advantage once again.


Detroit Lions:
2011 Record: 10-6

- No one can question that the Matt Stafford to Calvin Johnson connection was the biggest part of the Lions 2011 success. Stafford staying healthy will definitely be a big part of the Lions 2012 success and beyond, and the addition of Marcus McNeil at LT should help that, assuming that he can stay healthy. (His career was threatened by neck injuries in San Diego.) The Lions running game was also a weakness last season, and will hinge on health in 2012. Jahvid Best is one more concussion away from having his career ended, backup Mikel Leshoure will be returning from a devastating ruptured achilles and 3rd stringer Kevin Smith also carries a plethora of injury risks. Defensively, the Lions will need to make up for the loss of DE Cliff Avril in their pass rush, and it will be interesting to see if DT Nick Fairley can stay healthy for this season. The Lions are also banking on Lofa Tatupu to start at MLB after being out of football in 2011 and struggling with injuries in the seasons prior. And finally, the secondary is a huge question mark once again. The team's top 3 corners are Chris Houston, Alphonso Smith and rookie 2nd rounder Stephon Gilmore. No big upgrades for this unit which struggled badly in 2011. Additionally, Amari Spievey, another player who struggled badly in 2011, is slated to start once again with only questionable veteran pickups Brandon Merriweather and Bob Sanders to compete with.

2012 Prediction: 8-8 - Yes, I have the Lions taking a step back in a year where many predict them to take a step forward. There are serious health questions with far too many of their players and their defense still has far too many holes for my liking. I see them winning some shootouts with Stafford and Calvin, but any moderately good offense should carve that defense to shreds.


Chicago Bears
2011 Record: 8-8

- Things were looking great for the Bears in the middle of last season. The team was 7-3 with Jay Cutler and the offense absolutely rolling along...then he got hurt. The team finished on a 1-5 note, though they kept most of the games extremely close, a real credit to that defense pulling together. With Cutler healthy, Forte also healthy and on a one year franchise offer, and a true #1 WR added in Dwayne Bowe, the Bears offense has the potentially to be the best it's been in a long time. There are still question marks around the o-line, but the team has somehow found success despite that. With former o-line coach Mike Tice now calling the offensive shots and Cuter reunited with his favorite QB Coach from Denver in Jeremy Bates, you can bet that protecting Cutler and tailoring the offense to his strengths (something Mike Martz did not do) will be points of emphasis in 2012. Defensively, the Bears added Osi Umenyiora to help their pass rush. He and Julius Peppers should make for a scary one-two punch in that regard. Age is going to start to become a concern down the line, but veteran defensive anchors like Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs were still playing at a high level last season. Pro bowler Charles Tillman remains as strong as ever and the team added former Jaguar Rashean Mathis to the other side who, if even remotely healthy, will be a major upgrade over the Bears past #2 corners. The safeties also remain a concern, though Major Wright and Chris Conte showed a little potential in 2011. Add in the always great special teams unit, particularly Devin Hester and Robbie Gould, under one of the best special teams coordinators in the league in Dave Toub, and the Bears should contend for a playoff spot in 2012.

2012 Prediction - 11-5 - I look for a rebound year as a solid all-around Bears team stays on the Packers heels for a division title and ultimately ends up with a wildcard slot.


Minnesota Vikings:
2011 Record: 3-13

- The Vikings certainly had their struggles in 2011. QB Christian Ponder had flashes here and there, but overall played like a rookie QB. Adrian Peterson suffered a devastating knee injury making his effectiveness for the 2012 season, if he plays at all, a serious factor. Percy Harvin will once again be the team's only dangerous offensive weapon in Peterson's absence. The LT position was upgraded with first round pick Rielly Rieff, but protection will still remain an issue. The team's biggest improvements came defensively. Jared Allen, Kevin Williams and Chad Greenway will continue to anchor the front 7. The secondary received some nice upgrades with OJ Atogwe and Tracy Porter.

2012 Prediction: 5-11 - I like the defensive improvements, but the potential absence/ineffectiveness of Peterson couple with Harvin as the only dangerous offensive weapon in the passing game will hurt the offense.

Division Results:
Packers 13-3
Bears 11-5
Lions 8-8
VIkings 5-11

NFC East 2012 Predictions
by DC Insider Rick Bennett


NY Giants:
2011 Record: 9-7

- The Giants had a rather forgettable regular season, just barely winning the division in Week 17 and sneaking into the playoffs. From there, they did win the Superbowl, but I bet they'd prefer to not cut it as close in the regular season this year. The Giants passing game should remain strong, even with the loss of Manningham, as they added Mohamad Sanu with their first round pick. Brandon Jacobs is gone, so they'll need DJ Ware and rookie Chris Polk to step up. They return mostly the same o-line from last season, where they struggled at times but could be mostly solid overall. Defensively, emerging stud pass rusher JPP will be back, along with Justin Tuck to bring the heat on opposing QBs. They traded away the disgruntled Osi Umenyiora, so they'll probably figure to use Kiwankua as a DE more often. Jonathan Vilma upgrades the MLB spot but don't forget that he'll miss the first two games due to his bounty suspension. At corner, they still have Corey Webster but will need either 2nd year man Prince Amukamara (who was benched several times in 2011) or oft-injured FA pickup Terrence McGree to step up. They did lose veteran safety Deon Grant as a FA, so their depth there will take a hit behind quality starters Kenny Phillips and Antrelle Rolle.

2012 Prediction: 10-6 - An improvement over their regular season record from a year ago, but less than you'd like to see from the defending champs. Still, as long as they get to the playoffs, we know what they're capable of in them.


Dallas Cowboys:
2011 Record - 8-8

- The Cowboys had a shot to make the playoffs in week 17, but just couldn't best the Giants. 8-8 is a disappointing finish for a team with the hype they always receive, and you can bet they'll receive it again in 2012. Tony Romo is a good QB who gets too much flak, and he'll be key to the Cowboys offense in 2012. Around him, health will be the next most important factor. DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones, if healthy, will make for a solid RB tandem, as will Miles Austin and Dez Bryant at WR. Their depth took a hit when they lost Laurent Robinson as a free agent, so they'll need other players to step up as often as Austin and Bryant seem to get banged up. TE should be solid with the ever present Jason Witten at the position, though they lost his primary backup in Martellus Bennett to the Bears. The offensive line will be shaken up once again, with tackles Tyron Smith and Doug Free swapping places. And the starters on the interior may end up being entirely made up of newcomers. Expect another big year from DeMarcus Ware and Sean Lee in the LB corps defensively, but the secondary is what will need the most improvement. Janoris Jenkins was added in the first round of the draft to help the group of CBs, but the Cowboys return the same struggling safeties from 2011 in Sensabaugh and Elam. Also, Dan Bailey will need to shake off any mental stigma still held over from last season's misfortune.

2012 Prediction: 8-8 - I see another .500 effort coming from the Cowboys. I think this is the dumbest organization in the league, starting at the very top with the decisions made by Jerry Jones and going right down through the coaching staff and players. Some combination of injuries, ineffectiveness and just plain stupidity will end up tanking another Cowboys season.


Philadelphia Eagles:
2011 Record: 8-8

- The most disappointing team of 2011 was the Eagles. They'll return much of the same offense, with the biggest difference being Desean Jackson swapped out for Vincent Jackson. Michael Vick will badly need to replicate the success of 2010 more than what he did in 2011 in order for the offense to improve. First round pick Jonathan Martin at RT is the only other major change. Defensively, the Eagles needed to shore up their front 7 which got absolutely gashed to hell and back repeatedly in 2011. Their d-line remains unchanged, but they upgraded every linebacker position, adding Larry Grant, AJ Hawk and rookie Donta Hightower. And though they tried to trade him, the team kept Asante Samuel who was quite honestly their best corner in 2011...even outperforming mega FA signing Nnamdi Asomugha.

2012 Prediction: 12-4 - I have the Eagles improving enough to win this division. They shored up their biggest defensive weakness at the LB position with multiple additions and their struggles in the red zone should be helped majorly by 6'5 WR Vincent Jackson. I could see the Eagles being a VERY dangerous team in 2012.


Washington Redskins:
2011 Record: 5-11

- To anyone with a pulse, entering the 2011 season with Rex Grossman and John Beck as the top QBs seemed like a terrible idea. To anyone not named "Shanahan" at least...and the season went about as badly as expected. More of the offense struggled than did not, with Roy Helu and Fred Davis being a few of the bright spots. So, the Redskins overhauled the QB position completely by trading up for Robert Griffin and adding veteran FA David Garrard. Expect Griffin to start most, if not all, of the season. FA addition Marques Colston will help Griffin out quite a bit as will the addition of pro bowl ZBS center Chris Myers. Defensively, the Redskins are strong up front. They kept veteran ILB London Fletcher and have two great young OLBs in Orakpo and Kerrigan. Tyvon Branch was also signed to add some punch at safety, though the CB position still scares me.

2012 Prediction: 5-11 - Though I think the team is improved, this will be a hellishly competitive division (I don't see them beating the Giants twice again...) and they will probably be starting a rookie QB for most of it. Griffin may be good, but 99.9% of rookie QBs don't play like Cam Newton did last year, and that would be the kind of effort it would take for the Redskins to improve in 2012.

Division Results:
Eagles 12-4
Giants 10-6
Cowboys 8-8
Redskins 5-11

NFC South 2012 Predictions
by DC Insider Rick Bennett

(Shortening these to speed up the process)


New Orleans Saints:
2011 Record: 13-3

2012 Prediction: 10-6 - Their losses really started to add up this offseason: their top two WRs, Carl Nicks, Will Smith, Roman Harper...Drew Brees got the franchise tag...Jonathan Vilma was traded away...plus no first round pick...I think the Saints were likely headed backwards a bit to begin with. Now with all of this "Bountygate" hangover and losing head coach Sean Payton to a suspension as a result, I see the Saints definitely headed backwards. Drew Brees alone will still keep the Saints in playoff contention, but they have a lot to overcome.


Atlanta Falcons:
2011 Record: 10-6

2012 Prediction: 10-6 - The best thing that happened to the Falcons this offseason was the Saints getting in trouble. They upgraded their coordinators and made some minor moves, but I expect them to be similar to the 2011 version of themselves but with Julio Jones gaining another year's experience. The defense will likely be a hybrid under Mike Nolan and it's hard to tell how the pieces will fall into place there.


Carolina Panthers:
2011 Record: 6-10

2012 Prediction: 8-8 - I see continued improvement for the Panthers in Cam Newton's 2nd year. If he manages to avoid any type of sophomore slump, the Panthers could be a dark horse playoff contender. They didn't make many moves this offseason outside of the draft, but did bolster their defense there. I still think they're another year away from serious contention though.


Tampa Bay Bucs:
2011 Record: 4-12

2012 Prediction: 5-11 - Slight improvement. They have an entirely new coaching staff and splurged on all sorts of free agents, but I think everything will hinge on the development of Josh Freeman. It's his 4th year int he league and next season will be make or break for him. Based on 2011, I'm erring on the side of "break," which will hold the Bucs team back as a whole.

Division Results:
Falcons 10-6
Saints 10-6
Panthers 8-8
Bucs 5-11

NFC West 2012 Predictions
by DC Insider Rick Bennett


San Francisco 49ers:
2011 Record: 13-3

2012 Prediction: 12-4 - The 49ers may have had the best overall defense in the sport last year and got just enough done on offense to win. In 2012, teams will know what to expect with them and they won't be sneaking up on anyone anymore. Add to that the improved Cardinals team in the division, and I think they go backwards a little bit record wise. Plus, is Alex Smith the real deal or not?


Arizona Cardinals:
2011 Record: 8-8

2012 Prediction: 11-5 - Even a 75% Peyton Manning represents a huge upgrade for the Cardinals at QB, and no one will benefit from his presence more than Larry Fitzgerald. Throw in some other WR additions and some veteran stop gaps to plug holes on the o-line, and the Cardinals offense should be all around better in 2012. Their defense had a quietly strong year last season as well and should compliment the upgraded offense nicely. I see playoffs for the Cardinals.


Seattle Seahawks:
2011 Record: 7-9

2012 Prediction: 7-9 - I see another year much like last year for Seattle. Chad Henne isn't much of an upgrade at QB, if he's an upgrade at all, and once again they didn't sign or draft any youngsters to develop there. Marshawn Lynch's running plus an overall solid defense will help keep them from being embarrassingly bad, but I don't see any great improvement for Seattle next year.


St. Louis Rams:
2011 Record: 2-14

2012 Prediction: 3-13 - I think the Rams will improve slightly in year one under Jeff Fisher, but the Gregg Williams issues will hurt them. Sam Bradford's development should be helped a bit with the addition of first round pick LT Matt Kalil, but he still lacks any great weapons since I don't see Mario Manningham as a #1 WR. Defensively, they won't be bad up front, but their secondary is still a crap shoot mess. Throw in the suspension of their defensive coordinator and I think the defense overall is doomed to struggle.

Division Results:
49ers 12-4
Cardinals 11-5
Seahawks 7-9
Rams 3-13

AFC East 2012 Predictions
by DC Insider Rick Bennett


New England Patriots:
2011 Record: 13-3

2012 Prediction: 10-6 - I have the Pats taking a noticeable step back. Michael Griffin will be a great addition to their secondary, but they failed to address several other key areas. If an aging, just spent a year out of football Randy Moss is their best answer to their need of a deep threat WR, then they're in trouble. They kept roughly the status quo at pass rusher, bringing back Mark Anderson and replacing Andre Carter with Matt Roth. Throw in the threat of an extended Wes Welker holdout and I think the Pats are going to struggle more than some may think.


NY Jets:
2011 Record: 8-8

2012 Prediction: 8-8 - I like the Jets offensive additions via the draft, but their aging defensive core isn't quite what it was during their AFC Championship game runs. Plus they brought in no competition for Mark Sanchez...not even a quality backup. Barring sudden, drastic, consistent improvement from Sanchez, I don't think the Jets make the playoffs.


Buffalo Bills:
2011 Record: 6-10

2012 Prediction: 9-7 - The Bills surprised me with their improvement this offseason. Cliff Avril, Stephen Tulloch and Courtney Upshaw are great additions to their defensive front. They traded for a TE with a lot of potential in Finley and kept the core of their offense together by bringing back Stevie Johnson and Demetrius Bell. And Fred Jackson will be back healthy. I think this team goes as far as Ryan Fitzpatrick takes them...which is almost to the playoffs here. Almost.


Miami Dolphins:
2011 Record: 6-10

2012 Prediction: 8-8 - I'm seeing slight improvement upcoming for the Dolphins. Whether Matt Flynn proves to be a worthwhile pickup or AJ Feeley all over again will play a big part in this. They have solid talent in places and it will be interesting to see how their defensive conversion shakes out. I think everything will average out to them being a .500 team in 2012.

Division Results:
Patriots 10-6
Bills 9-7
Jets 8-8
Dolphins 8-8

AFC North 2012 Predictions
by DC Insider Rick Bennett


Baltimore Ravens:
2011 Record: 12-4

2012 Prediction: 12-4 - Not much of a change up here. The Ravens will continue to be Superbowl contenders...and then fall short. They're not winning a Superbowl with Joe Flacco at QB and Cam Cameron calling the plays.


Pittsburgh Steelers:
2011 Record: 12-4

2012 Prediction: 10-6 - Slight step back. They had to gut a lot of their older veterans hurting their depth and, while they managed to hang onto Mike Wallace, will have questions in the run game as Mendenhall recovers from a late season ACL tear.


Cincinnati Bengals:
2011 Record: 9-7

2012 Prediction: 11-5 - What happens when you have a very young team make the playoffs, then spend money on free agents and use two first round picks? Improvement. That's what. Trent Richardson should make for a great addition to Dalton and Green on offense, as should free agent pickup Laurent Robinson. Add Dwight Freeney to the defense (yeah, they pulled that off) and look out AFC.


Cleveland Browns:
2011 Record: 4-12

2012 Prediction: 4-12 - Slight defensive improvements won't cancel out the mediocrity on offense. First round pick Kendall Wright adds some speed but who will get the ball deep to him? McCoy? Kolb? Weeden? I'm going to attempt to type the sound I make in my head when I hear that trio of QBs: "Gewwahhhughhh." Better luck with Barkely in 2013 maybe?

Division Results:
Ravens 12-4
Bengals 11-5
Steelers 10-6
Browns 4-12

AFC South 2012 Predictions
by DC Insider Rick Bennett


Houston Texans:
2011 Record: 10-6

2012 Prediction: 12-4 - The Texans will get better simply by getting Matt Schaub healthy. They were competitive in the playoffs with a rookie 3rd string QB even. Another year of development for Wade Phillip's defense plus a healthy Schaub and anything they get out of their rookies will lead to improvement. And the division isn't exactly the toughest thing around.


Tennessee Titans:
2011 Record: 9-7

2012 Prediction: 8-8 - The Titans definitely overachieved last year and damn near made the playoffs to the surprise of many. However, it was pretty clear that they hit their ceiling with Matt Hasselbeck starting and will likely transition to Jake Locker this year. Throw in some of their big losses, like Finnegan and Griffin, and I see the Titans taking a step back before they can take any forward.


Jacksonville Jaguars:
2011 Record: 5-11

2012 Prediction: 4-12 - 4 wins is good assuming Blaine Gabbert gets pulled at some point. I just want to grab him and shake him while screaming "are you serious!?" as he plays. Plus, the coaching combination of Mike Mularkey and Bob Bratkowski leaves...quite a bit...to be desired.


Indianapolis Colts:
2011 Record: 2-14

2012 Prediction: 4-12 - This won't be a quick turnaround. 96% of the offense was built to function exclusively with Peyton Manning at QB and Andrew Luck won't be that...right away at least. I like their defense to improve more quickly under Chuck Pagano, as they made some good investments there with free agents and draft picks.

Division Results:
Texans 12-4
Titans 8-8
Jags 4-12
Colts 4-12

AFC West 2012 Predictions
by DC Insider Rick Bennett


Denver Broncos:
2011 Record: 8-8

2012 Prediction: 6-10 - Tebowmania finally dies its long overdue death as the team tries to work Tebow into a more pro-style offense. He manages to eek out about half a seasons worth of starts before he's finally, mercifully benched. Brian Hoyer takes over and is immediately better, but not good enough to complete turn this season around.


San Diego Chargers:
2011 Record: 8-8

2012 Record: 10-6 - The perennially underachieving Chargers manage to make the best of a bad division and improve to playoff contention levels. The additions of players like Soliai and first round pick Melvin Ingram help to improve the Chargers defensive front while Philip Rivers gets back to playing at a high level.


Oakland Raiders:
2011 Record: 8-8

2012 Prediction: 5-11 - Carson Palmer proves to be a washed up QB that should never have been traded for. While some parts of the team start to gel better than the did in 2011, the lack of anyone great at QB prevents the team from being worthwhile.


Kansas City Chiefs:
2011 Record: 7-9

2012 Record: 8-8 - Getting everyone healthy helps the Chiefs out a bit, but a mediocre passing game holds the team back. Ryan Tannehill gets some late season starts to develop for the future.

Division Result:
Chargers 10-6
Chiefs 8-8
Broncos 6-10
Raiders 5-11

Broth's Season Predictions pt. 1 of 2

NFC South

1. Atlanta Falcons
2. Tama Bay Bucs
3. New Orleans Saints
4. Carolina Panthers

Panthers didn’t give a depth chart the penalty is that Cam Newton is injured and the panthers are screwed. The Falcons added more depth to the WR position adding Steve Smith (PHI) and Jacob Tamme who filled in nicely for Dallas Clark a few seasons back. The question becomes can Matt Ryan take advantage of his new toys on offense?
The Bucs did a great job giving Freeman another weapon in Justin Blackmon who will take away the double team from Mike Williams. They added a great set of depth at the RB but no burner. Courtland Finnegan at the CB position is a vast upgrade. The only question I have is LaRon Landry but they will be a wild card team.
The Saints take a step back losing both big NTs and replacing it with Ron Brace. They did a good job at making improvments in the run D and Tom Zbikowski isn’t going to miss any tackles. But on the offensive side of the ball they lost a ton in the WR position and replacing your best WR Colston with Brian Quick and also losing another WR in Mechem has to hurt their production on the offensive side of the ball add that to a possible suspension to Payton it is going to be a down year for the saints.

AFC West
1. KC Chiefs
2. Denver Broncos
3. San Diego Chargers
4. Oakland Raiders

The Raiders are behind the 8 ball with no draft picks, no cap space and Carson Palmer at the QB position Carson proves he was a waste of a first and second round pick as they rebuild over the next two seasons. Chargers lost a ton of pieces and will be in a hard battle with the Broncos but when it is all said and done that D is going to be deadly. Add that to the fact that Norv can’t put a consistent product on the field drops them to third. If Denver had anyone behind center other than Tim Tebow or Blain Gabbert they very may well have won the division. That D is NASTY. Doom + Mario skeet skeet skeet. Enter Run DMC this is a playoff team in the NFC adding Wright and Leonhard were also great additions. The Chiefs were masterful in this off season they needed a NT got one of the best in the AFC. Needed a 2nd RB got a very good under rated guy in the late rounds need a guard get one of if not the best in the NFL. RT sucks draft one. These additions to an already good team if they can stay reasonably healthy this time around this should be the team to win the division.

NFC North

1. Chicago Bears
2. Green Bay Packers
3. Detroit Lions
4. Minnesota Vikings


The NFC North is a huge battle amongst the top three teams. We may have seen the game plan be published against the Pack near the end of last season. They lost Finley and Shiancoe is a poor replacement IMO can Nick Perry play OLB? Adding Gaither is a lateral move as well how well will an aging Charles Woodson do for another season in the NFL? The Vikings are a better team than their record will show. Peterson coming off a tough injury last season and Ponder entering his second season with not much to speak of at the WR position other than Harvin fat Pat retiring hurts the D-Line its an aging team trying to rebuild it will happen soon enough. The Chicago Bears were a team on the verge of the playoffs before Cutler and Forte got injured and even if Cutler does get injured Jason Campbell is no slouch. Osi and J-Pep makes me pee my pants. As sad as it is Jason Smith is a good improvement to the LT position. Top that off with Dwayne BOWE the Bears are going to be a team contending for a first round bye. Finally the Lions being pressed up against the cap was forced to take risks in free agency to attempt to return 24 free agents scheduled this off season. The O-Line is vastly improved but Shaun Ellis is a poor replacement for Cliff Avril.

AFC EAST

1. New England Patriot
2. Buffalo Bills
3. Miami Dolphins
4. New York Jets


Even before reading the rosters the Pats pretty much won. When your team has the best TWO QBs in division its hard to lose it. The O-Line is back with some depth added nice. The big question is can the Pats bring back the momentum that the secondary had at the end of last season? The Bills are by far the most improved team adding Avril who should be a beast in the 3-4 and Tulloch should be an improvement to this team. Insurting Courtney upshaw just adds better pass rushes. Finley adds another dimension as well if Scott Chandler can be a stud in this offense so can Finley. Miami will be close Flynn will be OK but not nearly what he was against the Lions last year. Where as the Jets didn’t really gain anyone to push Sanchez the in fighting in the locker room will boil over and the offense will be more stagnant despite Miller’s best efforts.

Broth's Season Predictions Pt 2 of 2

AFC South
1. Houston Texans
2. Titans
3. Colts
4. Jags


Texans basically run away with the division its almost too easy. They don’t lose much outside of Mario Williams. They gain two good WRs in Moss and Hill the T-New pickup is a questionable one but that is the only weakness. I wanted to put the Titans 4th for not having a depth chart. But the Jags and Colts suck way too much. The Colts have surely improved on the defensive side of the ball so it gives them a head to head tie breaker with the Jags. Speaking of the Jags Gabbert is the QB nuff said.

AFC North

1. Pittsburgh Steelers
2. Cincinnati Bengals
3. Baltimore Ravens
4. Cleveland Browns

Horrifically difficult division the Steelers won it for me based off from the vast improvment to the O-Line. Mendenhall isn’t a huge loss and they got considerably younger at NT and Upgraded to Franklin a healthy Polamalu gives them a week 17 clinch of the division. Then comes the Bengals adding trent Richardson is HUGE for the bengals this adds another threat and should open things up for AJ Green and Laurent Robinson down the field it would have been nice to see them take another WR though. But I guess you can’t complain about adding Dwight Freeney to a team who was top 5 in defense. In a close 3rd was the Ravens age starts to get to them finally as the ageless ed reed and ray louis finally slow down a little. Finally the Browns are the odd man out they did well this off season but they couldn’t secure a top QB.

NFC East

1. Philadelphia Eagles
2. Washington Redskins
3. New York Giants
4. Dallas Cowboys


The Cowboys got worse and the team is currently wondering if Romo is the answer after losing faith in him by mid season. Adding Jenkins is a start but not enough to fix everything. The Giants take a step back next season they are no longer disrespected and no longer as motivated adding Vilma is huge and they are right up there for 2nd in the division but the Skins sweep the Giants in the regular season giving the Skins the better record. The Skins last year had one glaring weakness and that was QB while rookies at that position don’t usually make a huge impact lets face the facts RGIII is 10x the QB that Rex is. They added Colston and Royal to help out as well The D was great last year but now they have the offense. The Eagles had one obvious weakness that was stopping the run up the middle. Dont’a Hightower stiches that right up and adding Hawk should also help in the Run D on top of a team that is amazing on paper and nearly came back to take the division after a putrid start.

NFC West

1. Arizona
2. San Fran
3. Seahawks
4. Rams


As I’ve done before Rams didn’t leave a depth chart thus fall to the bottom. The Seahawks are great on the O-Line but they were a victim of circumstance that they are forced to start Chad Henne (although I <3 Henne) but next draft they should make a huge jump. Arizona wins this division because they have Peyton Manning. Much like what the AFC south use to be the other three teams are rutterless at the QB position (that includes Alex Smith) putting together Peyton (I make good WRs look like HOFers) Manning and Larry (I make John Skelton look like a starting QB) Fitzgerald and add Reggie Wayne to the mix how do you stop that.

Playoff seeding

AFC

1. New England
2. Houston Texans
3. Pittsburgh Steelers
4. KC Chiefs
5. Cincinnati Bengals
6. Denver Broncos

NFC
1. Philadelphia Ealges
2. Arizona Cardinals
3. Chicago Bears
4. Atlanta Falcons
5. San Francisco 49ers
6. Green Bay Packers

TBW's 2012 NFC Regular Season Picks

East
1. Eagles
2. Giants
3. Redskins
4. Cowboys
Overview: Eagles improve all-around despite losing DeSean Jackson and some quality Offensive Linemen. Improve in basically every area. Slight drop-off by the Superbowl Champs. The troubles of Jonathan Vilma will hurt a team already struggling with the Mike position. Cowboys still start some stinkers in the secondary. The rest of the East looks to be pass-heavy so lapse in the defensive backfield looks to stunt the 'Boys potency. Look for the 'Skins to be a surprise as they improved upon most areas to a team with a solid Defense as well as new stud QB Robert Griffin.

North
1. Packers
2. Bears
3. Lions
4. Vikings
I see the division looking identical to that of last season. The Packers added depth on defense and a good young tackle in Jared Gaither who has potential to be a franchise player in Green Bay. the Bears added some pieces I like in Bowe and Umenyiora, however without paying more attention to the offensive line, as well as an aging defense, they may be in trouble in the future. The Lions lost some key pieces on defense and failed to replace them adequately. Expect explosive offense and meh defense. The Vikings will have trouble starting off the season without Adrian Peterson. Minnesota should be an improved defensive unit, but they have a way to go before becoming competitive within the NFC North.

South
1. Falcons
2. Buccaneers
3. Panthers
4. Saints
Overview: the Falcons look to be winners of a close NFC division. Improved offensive depth should provide the explosion that the Falcons lacked this past season making them a team to watch out for. The Bucs may be the league's most improve team, signing good players in free agency as well as drafting impact rookie Justin Blackmon. If Josh Freeman performs well, this could be a playoff team. Despite not knowing exactly how the Panthers look going into the season, you have to assume they've improved. Cam Newton came on last year, and with many players coming back from injury, we shall see what the enigmatic quarterback can really do. Lastly, the biggest surprise. The Saints lost multiple impact players, are having legal problems with the league, and failed to sign QB Drew Brees to a long term deal. I fully expect this Saints team to be a mess and to be seeking new leadership going into 2013.

West
1. Cardinals
2. 49ers
3. Seahawks
4. Rams
Overview: The Cardinals made free agency's biggest splash by landing Peyton Manning. Bringing in other good players that fit needs, the Cardinals are my early NFC representative for the Super Bowl. The 49ers aren't far behind. Adding explosive playmakers on offense, the '9ers should be one of the most competitive teams around if Alex Smith can repeat last year's performance. Neither the Seahawks or Rams impressed me in this process, making minimal improvement at best. I expect both to be picking early in next year's draft.

OFFICIAL REPORT: DREW BREES REFUSES TO SIGN FRANCHISE TAG, WILL HOLD OUT


The record setting QB will sit out unless and until he gets a new deal.

As if the Saints needed more problems in this offseason that has already seen them hit with penalties for the "Bountygate" scandal, news now comes out of New Orleans that Brees is "livid" with the application of the franchise tag and "sources in the Brees camp say that he will not sign the franchise tag deal."

An ugly situation just got far worse for the Saints, as any time missed by Brees will have a serious negative impact on the offense.

It is unknown whether Brees would hold out into the season itself or not, but even missing camp and the preseason would be a major detrament to the team's already shaky 2012 chances.

The only other QBs on the Saints roster are Chase Daniel, who has never started an NFL game, and late round draft pick rookie Kellen Moore.

Top 10 Picks of the 2013 Draft Predicted


Possible #1 Overall Pick?

1.) St. Louis Rams - WR Robert Woods, USC - If the Rams end up picking this high once again, there will be calls to replace Sam Bradford at QB. However, head coach Jeff Fisher seems committed to Bradford and, having just drafted a franchise LT last year in Matt Kalil, the Rams go back to the Trojan well for the draft's top WR in Robert Woods with this pick. The reduced payments thanks to the rookie salary scale help to justify taking a WR here, and Bradford will be extremely glad to have a true #1 target.

2.) Indianapolis Colts - OT DJ Fluker, Alabama - Protecting new franchise QB Andrew Luck will be a huge priority for the Colts. Between Fluker and 2011 first round pick Anthony Castonzo, the Colts would have a pair of bookend tackles for years to come.

3.) Cleveland Browns - QB Matt Barkley, USC - The Colt McCoy/Kevin Kolb/Brandon Weeden show needs to be mercifully put to an end. Barkely is far superior to any of them and has all the tools needed to become Cleveland's first franchise QB since reentering the league.

4.) Oakland Raiders - QB Tyler Bray, Tennessee - Carson Palmer was a major failure and a terrible waste of resources, but at least with their first 1st round pick in two years, the Raiders can rectify that here. He'll sure have a lot of speed at WR to utilize if nothing else.

5.) Jacksonville Jaguars - DE Jarvis Jones, Georgia - While it is painful to watch Gabbert attempt to play "quarterback" in the NFL, there just isn't one available with this pick to justify replacing him. So, the Jaguars look to their pass rush where free agent signees Andre Carter and Israel Idonije simply aren't long term answers.

6.) Tampa Bay Bucs - WR Keenan Allen, Cal - The Bucs will likely be looking to replace Josh Freeman if they're picking this high, but with no QB prospect available here who would be worth the pick, they instead grab a playmaking WR to help out whoever their eventual QB does turn out to be.

7.) Washington Redskins - CB David Amerson, NC State - Robert Griffin gives the Redskins the most hope they've had at the QB position since...well...maybe ever. But it's the secondary that still needs help, so they pick the draft's top corner here in the 6'3 Amerson.

8.) Minnesota Vikings - OT Jake Matthews, Texas A&M - After missing out on Kalil last year, the Vikings finally get the pass blocking LT they've always wanted in Matthews here. Hopefully he'll be able to provide better protection to developing QB Christian Ponder.

9.) Denver Broncos - QB Tyler Wilson, Arkansas - Time to wash that godawful Tim Tebow taste out of their mouths. Wilson feels like a very slight reach here now, but he has the potential to move up and demand is always high for QBs with franchise tools.

10.) Seattle Seahawks - CB Xavier Rhodes, Florida State - The Seahawks have a great young pair of safeties, some good linebackers and heavily invested in their d-line in the 2012 draft, so, with no more worthwhile QBs on the board, they look to close the last of their big defensive holes with the big corner in Rhodes here.
