The 2006 Raiders offense would still have struggled badly in the NFC imo; the team would have at the very least doubled their win total though. Of course, if the Cincinnati Bengals were in the NFC they would reach the Super Bowl, so maybe the point is moot.

Thankfully, the NFC is improving for the better. Teams are getting better, front offices are making better decisions, and more frauds are being exposed. It's still not near the level of the AFC, but the conference is definitely in an upswing and will continue to do so, I suspect.

Garcia has had success in more traditional west coast offenses, however, I don't see him having success in this one. Gruden's offense has a very original twist to it. The bootlegs are limited, the drops are usually 5-step drops, and he may be asked to hold the ball a bit longer. I just don't know if that really fits his style of play. Garcia needs quick drop backs, lots of out-of-the-pocket play, and he loves to get the ball out of his hands fairly quick. Whether he can adjust to the style of Gruden's offense is a big question for me.

Any team who was in the playoffs last year can't be a pick as a big surprise to win games and go deep in the playoffs. It's silly to bring something like that up...

Not really

You'll see Philly, Dallas, Carolina, New Orleans, Chicago, Seattle.

Those teams are a cut above the rest in the NFC, the teams who'll be in the mix though:

GB, Atlanta and Arizona.

How is Carolina a cut above? They finished 8-8 and didn't make the playoffs. The Giants at least made the playoffs.

I don't think the MVP and OPOY are ever the same person.

The last three years the AP MVP and the NFL OPY have been the same person. Manning, Alexander, and Tomlinson

I'd be redonkulously surprised if Miami won 8 games, if they make the playoffs I'll go nuts.

Carolina lost steve smith for two games, jake delhomme for three games, our left tackle, and centre for the season. Lost our LG (probowl) for about 4 games.
Lost our number 3 WR for 4 games, lost our starting cornerback for one game, lost our starting cornerbacks with the number 4 on the depth chart also injured for 6 games and we lost our starting strong safety for the better part of the year.

If Delhomme was healthy against New York or even for that matter Pitt the games would've been more interesting.

Right now, in that divison with carolina having so many issues they went 5-1. Plus we play the NFC West, where I can't see any team other than Seattle being able to be considered more impressive and our 2nd place finish means we miss out of playing the big contenders in the North and East.

Plus in the AFC we get the texans, jags, indianapolis and tennessee.

We've got a fairly easy schedule, there's not a decent defense that the team faces until like week 9 against GB.

Soft teams and a top 10 defense that has improved over an offseason is a recipe for success.
