    NFCN Predictions:

    Packers: 12-4
    Vikings: 10-6
    Bears: 8-8
    Lions: 5-11

    Packers win it again but it is a lot closer. Injuries could play a bigger role in 08, and they lose a couple close games now that teams respect them more and gameplan/prepare better. Have good overall talent, awesome depth, good teamwork without glaring weaknesses and the important elements are all there. However, face much more of an uphill battle next year than last. Offense consistently finds ways to score, though it may be in a lot of different ways. Defense is solid but struggles against elite receivers, doesn't get after the QB enough and needs Woodson/Harris to be healthy.

    Vikings show a lot of potential but will get blown out once or twice and show they are only missing a few pieces to be a very competitive team. They are held back by mediocre/poor coaching and a defense that lacks a pass rush and the coverage skills to make up for it. Offense is a powerhouse but disappears in some games. TJack's play improves and their passing offense is average, most of the time. Defense also has potential but is hit or miss, it really depends on the offense they play against and whether or not they play to their strengths or weaknesses. Could come on strong at the end of the year and take the division if things go well.

    Bears defense plays much, much better when healthy (esp Harris). They win a lot of games for them but lose whenever they play a team with a decent offense that doesn't turn the ball over. Their offense is a mess and only scores when Hester or the D puts them in great position. Have trouble establishing the run and passing game is inconsistent, but has the potential to develop a vertical passing game, if QB play is stable.

    Lions play spoiler all season, just too little depth and coordination, and missing some important pieces. Offense can put up points and defense can make turnovers, but overall just lacking too much talent. Calvin Johnson and Roy Williams are dangerous at times, but disappear when the OL/QB fails them, and CJ only has to learn to catch better to be elite. Defense is often taken advantage of and they are constantly playing from behind.

      I predict that every week that the Patriots on tv will be a primetime game. All 16 games will be primetime.

        I predict that despite winning the SB, the Giants won't be considered the favorite out of the NFC when the offseason is complete.

        And thats just how i hope it turns out. Perhaps the team can get focused and stay motivated if no one respects them next year too.

          I dont think there will be a clear cut favorite in the NFC. Green Bay, New York, and Dallas will be the favorite(s) but, there wont be a clear cut team, imo...unless that is, Jerry Jones does something huge this off-season.

            Ha, it may seem like it. But there is a maximum of 6 primetime games a team can have in a regular season, and one of those 6 has to be on the NFL Network (otherwise the max is 5).

            According to this, Giants and Cowboys share the same NFC-leading odds. Pats favored in the AFC and overall of course, with the Chargers second. Huh.

                  If the Rams address the offensive line right, I think they can make the playoffs. I like what Haslett is doing with the defense, it didn't make sense for them to interview Greg Williams.

                  But as of right now, I think Linehan is getting canned after this season.

                    There's no reason for them to be. They were the best team in the NFC this year, but that in now way ensures they'll be the best next year.

                    That said I can't think of anyone off-hand that I think is more talented. I predicted them to make the Superbowl before the playoffs started, though was obviously suprised like most that they took it to the Pats.

                        Its tough to say who's the most talented. I think thats an overrated thing anyway, its not necessarily who has the most talent, but where you have it, along with health, leadership, good coaching and steady qb play.

                        Im not saying the Giants should repeat, but im already hearing a lot of media outlets saying that GB or Dallas are the front runners next year. And Im like, based on what? The NFL is so up and down, its impossible to predict who will do what, but you figure the fickle media would throw in the SB champs as the initial best in the NFC next year, and theyre not.

                        Thats all im saying. I personally don't know if we can repeat. The NY media will get in these guys heads. I hope it doesn't happen. But its so hard repeating as is, once you get that attention, it gets in your head. Thats what im worried about.

                        • i'm really not buying the Viking hype. their strong point is their DTs and they're not getting any younger. they still have needs at DE, WR and a very unproven QB. a lot of things would need to go right for them to have the year some are predicting they'll have. Not to say it won't happen. a lot of things had to go right for the Packers to have the year they had. but the Vikes are not a complete team, and they're really relying on a RB that has not been consistent. he's been great at times, but he has a history of injuries and he has disappeared for games. I could really see the Vikings getting worse before they get better.

                          as far as the Packers. yeah, they backed into some wins last year...and they made it as far as they should have. with a good off-season, they could do great things in 2008. the thing that worries me is their CBs. We've been lucky to have Harris and Woodson stay reletively healthy for the last 2 years....i feel that we're pushing our luck and next year is the year one (or both) of 'em goes down. and then we're f'd in the a. we saw what happened against Dallas when we relied on backups. It's not pretty. so, depth is needed. IF they stay healthy, and IF Favre has a year similar to last year, and IF Ryan Grant wasn't an 8 game fluke, good things can happen. They're strong up front, and there is a lot of young promise elsewhere. But, with one or less year of proven experience from a good part of their roster, staying the course could be difficult. But, everybody is right; that much young talent COULD also mean an improved 2008 team. and when a team that was this close // from the superbowl is improving, there is plenty of reason for optimism.

                          Oh, and.....THE BEARS STILL SUCK!
