the Giants are only #1 because they are the champs, but in reality that team is falling apart left and right; this team will not even be in the playoffs next year. -Packers are also decaying at almost every position on defense; could easily see the Bears and Lions finally cashing it in again like it's the early 90s all over again.
Pats should be at #1 (same roster, dangerous passing combo with a Tom terrific), 49ers should be #2 (same roster, newer weapons on offense to be tested).
You don't even have to be a homer to admit though that the 49ers are probably the most COMPLETE team in the NFC right now
. -And because of this, they'll be contenders for the Championship for at least the next 3 years.
