    It seems the Seahawks have lose a few steps. The 49ers have some digruntled players and a coach. GM feud going on. Who will win the Division?

    The Rams had a great draft and if Bradford can stay healthy, they have a great chance to win the West.

    i'll say this as my bold silly prediction..no one in that division gets to the Super Bowl this year. And Seattle wont scare anyone like they did last year. The Rams will shock the world and get 2nd place in division over SF and under Seattle by mere percentage points debated as though theres a point differential and win/loss record conspiracy. Kaep will be injured long term during the year..thats all I have for now LOL

    Wilson and Kap get hit, I'm guessing, about the same amount of time. Kap is a much bigger QB as well. Why is it Kap is always getting tagged as the one to get hurt? Just a question.

    And what makes you think the 49ers will be worse this year?

    Win the west? How about making the play offs first. To do that they will have to beat out the 49ers and Cards first, no easy task.
    However I like the spirt.

    Rvnight,
    Don't let him side track you by criticizing Kaep. The Rams will need to be super improved to keep out of the cellar in the NFC west, much less winning the division.

    Seattle = 49'ers > zona > Rams until proven otherwise.

    The problem with predicting who wins the west is they are all so close that the difference is going to come down to injuries and anyone trying to predict that is just going off wishful thinking more than anything concrete.

    The team with the least high profile injuries that recovers and is at the fullest strength around the playoffs will be in the best position.

    Seattle is better than the niners til proven otherwise too. It's close, but the better QB and better defense on the short field are what separates them as of now.

    Seattle and San Fran are the favorites as it sits... Cards ended the season playing some dam good football so there definitely in the mix... Rams while probably improved a bit still can't surpass any team in the NFC West right now... I just don't see it...

    It will be the Hawks or the Niners. Cards and Rams will both field good teams and compete but they're just not on the level of Seattle and SF yet. Consistent QB play is what is really holding the Rams and Cards back right now.

    I really like the Rams, especially their defense which is going to be flat out nasty. I would be concerned with Bradford. He just doesn't have the "it" factor. You can't look at stats for it but when watching him, there's just something missing. I think the Rams can finish #2.

    I'd like the Cardinals a bit more if they hadn't lost Darryl Washington. He is a solid LB for a 3-4 defense and am not sure if he can be replaced. Add in Palmer who can't be trusted. The Cardinals do have playmakers on both sides of the ball. I think the Cardinals can finish #2.

    Seattle has a great defense and hasn't lost a thing and their players are just entering their prime right now. Another nasty defense. How much more abuse can Lynch take and will their OL gel? I think Russell Wilson is underrated. Fans always talk about Seattle being just a defensive team with Marshawn Lynch and a game manager QB. Russell Wilson is real good when I watched him and having Percy Harvin for a season if he's not hurt, is a weapon that was only utilized in their SB. I think the Seahawks can finish #1.

    San Francisco also has a great team. Losing Bowman is a big blow that 49er fans don't realize the negative impact it will have. Justin Smith is almost cooked. He looked terrible in the NFCCG. Tank needs to play to his college potential and SF will be stout at the point of attack. I'm not sold on their secondary at this juncture. A rookie slot guy drafted in rd1, a new SS in Bethea who is just o.k. vs the pass. Eric Reid will be a beast and expect him to take a huge leap in impact. Free Safeties tend to excel starting in year 2.

    I think the 49ers defense will regress but I expect their offense to be stellar. Hyde is a downhill animal and adding Steve Johnson is another weapon for Kaepernick. 49er's have the best Receivers in the NFL and a solid Offensive Line. I think the 49ers now have the worst Defense in the division. Yes, it's shocking but shows how improved the Cardinals and Rams defenses will be. Remember, it's not just about last year but projecting growth into the defense. Seahawks have a top 5 all time NFL defense and 49er's aren't in that league. The 49ers have the best Offense in the division. I think the 49er can finish #1 but won't.

    Seattle was one really dumb kraperprick mistake away from going to the SB instead of us. If that's not a case of Seattle == 49'ers then I don't know what is.

    Both teams had injuries and challenges over the season to get to that point. Either could have the advantage next year in that critical department. It would take both having substantial problems for the other two to realistically overtake them.

    Even if the Seahawk just knock that pass down, they are up by 6 with about 20 seconds on the clock. I still think the Seahawks win.

    Anyone dismissing the Cardinals should do so at their own peril. Arians is cooking up a nice team that can compete with anyone in that division... even Seattle.

    That's why I give Seattle the edge at QB.

    That game may have been tight, but that play is pretty much par for the course for both Kap and Seattle's D. Last year Seattle had more RZ turnovers than they gave up RZ tds (several of which were courtesy of Kap) so even when they were driving I wasn't all that worried about them punching it in.
