I expect them to make the playoffs and possibly advance but they wont seriously contend. Their frontline on defense is too small and will get bullied by the good running teams. They have some decent recievers but not great and they dont have a TE like Antonio Gates who can make up for their lack of a go to WR.
Get close and lose? I think thats what last year was for. They have the defense, the quarterback, the tough yards back, and a guy in Bush that very few, if any, teams can match up with.
They have what it takes.
I agree this Saints team is definitely one of the most exciting teams in the league to watch. They have a top 5 QB, a got to WR/redzone machine in Colston, tough yardage back in Duece, and a gamebreaker in Bush. Not to mention their newly strengthened D and outstanding coach.
Don't sleep on the Rams though. If they obtain home-feild for the playoffs they can make the superbowl with that offense.
Steven Jackson is one of the best backs in football. Holt is very much Harrison-like, and Bulger is a great quarterback. Add that to a good line and other targets like Bruce, Bennett, McMichael & Donte Hall is a great kick-returner.
If they can stop the run at an average rate, that team can be this years Colts.
I am telling you right now that the Seahawks are the best team in the NFC and will go to the Super Bowl and post a brilliant record in the season.
Start rooting for them now, you'll look GOOD later
recently I've found the Seahawks to be a good NFC team to
favor... Dallas lost to them in the playoffs and not once did
I feel any hatred to them. After the Romo 'fix'.....
Seattle went on and played an exciting game against the Bears.
I've kinda looked at Seattle as the Dallas Mavericks of the NFL.
We both got screwed by refs the one time we got into the finals.
And if I recall correctly didn't they both entered their leages in 1980?
