The NFC looks very tough this year. I think the Eagles will post the biggest threat this year if they can provide even a decent defense. If you all remember, they were crushing us early on last year until Justin Smith closed it out for us. The Packers have a potent offense but that was only because of the weak defenses they played last year. Look what happened when a respectable defense like the Giants played them.
Giants - one year wonder and grateful for Kyle
Cowboys- Romo the choker
Lions - shut down Megatron
'Aints - they're done
...Bears, Carolina, Seachickens, AZ??? nah...
Eagles scare me the most with all that talent, speed, etc. What do you guys think?
Yes, Aaron had a lot to do with it but his stats wouldn't have looked so good if he had to play the AFC North or NFC East like the 49ers played. The AFC North had some of the top defenses in the NFL last year. Even the Cleveland Browns were #10. We played 6 of the top 10 defenses last year. Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Cincy, Baltimore, Seattle, Philly... Aaron wouldn't have looked so good if he had to play those teams and it showed against the Giants.
