I like the covers. I really want the Big Ben one, but I'll end up with Romo. ***.

NFC North dominates the playoffs.

Too bad only one team will make it there. Green Bay.

Bears and Packers in the NFC Championship game would be epic but, yeah Peter King just kidney punched our season. Maybe next year. Sigh.

Come on man..Don't get cocky in preseason football..I know the Packers have performed well so far but its just preseason. I wouldn't be surprised at all if the Bears, Packers and Vikings all got into the playoffs. All three are in like the top five of easiest schedule in the league. It will come down to the questions concerning each teams on who will win the North.

I never really take these predictions serious though.

who does the north face this year? Because the East gets the AFC West and has two of the best teams in the NFC this year while if seattle stays healthy they could contend for a WC spot by beating up on the 9ers and rams.I think the north has three teams that could warrant a WC birth but I'd be shocked if all three did.

In the 3 horse race for the NFC-N I think one team will fall apart, one team will dominate to a division title, and one team will be a strong wildcard.

They play the AFC North and NFC West.

i don't know then, I think the Bengals will be pretty good this year, inconsistent though, so the AFC North is a tough match up and both Seattle and SF should be mediocre enough to win if any of the NFC Nroth teams have a bad game. I just don't see the Bears, Vikings and Packers all having better records than the Giants/Eagles, Cowboys, Panthers, Saints, Falcons and Seahawks.

That 2006 prediction was just beyond bad. I don't think an average at best teamed was ever pimped up by the media like the Dolphins were in 2006.
