As the 6th seed:

Gil Brandt: Carolina Panthers. I think everybody's kind of writing off the Panthers, given how much receiving talent they lost, but the pass catchers they ended up with -- including first-round pick Kelvin Benjamin -- are as good as last year's guys. Plus, their defense is still excellent.

 

Elliot Harrison: Panthers. The defense is simply too stout for this team to not make the postseason, although we envision a drop to 10-6 or perhaps 9-7. Cam Newton must stay healthy.

lol at Michael Silver picking the Bucs to win the South. SMH.

Not even a winning season for us. It's our traditional 'down year'. And we've lost sooooo many of our top players since last season.

 

We sure didn't get picked by anybody to go 12-4 and win the division last year, so I'm all for proving 'em wrong again. Not sure 10-6 will get us a playoff spot though, so I'll agree that we drop off....... to 11-5 (hopefully not just wishful thinking).

I don't know why everyone cares so much about this.  Lets be honest, we had a ton of turnover on our team this season.  If Gross and Smitty were still on this team I guarantee they would be saying something different.

 

They are analyst and they are paid to analyze what they think will happen.  Heck I'm not even sure we can make the playoffs.  Let them talk.  It's not a knock on the Panthers or  "disrespect", it's opinion.  And everyone is entitled to one.

Basically, they are projecting the Bears to take our spot, and their offense is great but their D is a question mark

Division Champs
West - Seahawks (10 of 11)
South - Saints (10 of 11)
North - Packers (10 of 11)
East - Eagles (10 of 11)

Wildcard:
8 of 11 - Bears
7 of 11 - 49ers
2 of 11 - Panthers
2 of 11 - Lions
2 of 11 - Cards
2 of 11 - Cowboys
1 of 11 - Bucs
And the Cowboys was a joke, the one guy said it was "improbable" the other guy said "There is no rational reason for me to make this selection"

We really should be used to this by now...I'd rather these "analysts" crap on us.  Rivera and the players feed off of it.

lol every last one of them picked the falcons to win the division

 

seriously what do i have to do to get that job.  everyone on this board knew the falcons were dogshit in the trenches and a prime candidate to crash and burn into the cellar because of their depth problems and that ultimately proved to be better "analysis" than what the heavy hitting national writers put out there.

Bucs are a trendy pick this year. They should be better but who knows.

 

One espn guy picked them to go to the superbowl.
