Could be the Rams even.. Fisher, Doug Williams D..Don't think they will even be considered like a sleeper, they are going to ball and be very dangerous.. The NFC West is no longer the NFC Weak.. it's gonna be nasty with at least 2 big time rivalries with the Niners, could be the entire West will have rivalries with the Niners..
Tough, tough schedule next year.. Hate to say it again; but THIS was our year
I think you mean Gregg Williams who was just the Saint's DC before being hired by the Rams. Doug Williams is the QB who won the Super bowl XXII and is head coach at Grambling.
As far as the our toughest divison opponent next year I think it will be Arizona. They have more talent at QB right now and that is what makes the difference between them and Seattle since they both have good D's and running games. Arizona has better QB play and better WR's, although Seattle has a couple of good young recievers and Sidney Rice. But if Seattle can get help at QB they will be the ones to worry about. Their defense is prety good and young, they will only get better. Pete Carrol has already shown with Seattle and in the past with other teams (Niners, Jets, and Patriots) that he knows how to create a good NFL defense. I think the Rams will be tougher with Fisher this year but might still be a year away but who knows in the NFL these days. Whichever team gives us the most challenge next year it definetly looks like the NFC west is improving overall and won't be the doormat for the NFL anymore.
