NFC South Next Season

Recommended Posts

Personally, I believe the NFC South will easily be the best, most exciting division in football next season.

Think about it this…

For the NFC offenses…

The Saints have the league's best passing attack.

We have the league's best running game.

The Falcons have a consistent passing and running game.

The Bucs could surprise us with a legit passing and rushing game.

For the defenses…

The Saints have one of the league's most explosive defenses.

We have one of the league's most physical D's.

The Falcons are very consistent on defense too.

The Bucs have great defensive potential.

And even for special teams…

The Saints have Reggie Bush returning kickoffs and punts of TDs every once in a while.

We have one of the most physical special teams unit as well as a consistent kicker in Kasay, a good punter in Baker, and even a great K.O.S in Rhys Lloyd.

The Falcons have a great coverage unit.

I've got to say that the Bucs have the league's best special teams unit, blocking punts and kicks, returning kicks and punts for TD's, and making S.T turnovers too.

So I have to say, the NFC is gonna be a very hard division to win in next season. Who agrees that the NFC South being the league's hardest division for years to come?? And who does everyone think will win the South next season??

My predictions… 1. Saints 2. Panthers (Both enter the playoffs) 3. Falcons 4. Bucs

Nice post.........2 things. When describing our Special Teams the word "SUCKS" must be mentioned somewhere in the sentence and picking the Aint's to finish ahead of us=..................Fail.

Saints are back to earth next year. It's us in first, ATL and TB are going to share #2 and #4 (ATL should get second place, but the Bucs could surprise) and NO third.

Haha yeah, I understand. I was trying to point out the little positives in our special teams. And even though I'm the biggest Panther fan ever, I just don't see the Panther's winning more games than the Saints. But we will go further in the playoffs, no doubt.

Not that all of our hype amounted to much either.

We didn't have any hype entering the 2009 season. Just a bunch of people (rightfully) talking about Delhomme's playoff performance and Peppers. Every other news story out of Falcons camp was Ryan's "scary" improvement and how Tony Gonzalez was the missing piece that would propel them to NFC elites.

We had some hype alright. I mean, people were wondering about our QB situation and what would happen with Peps, but nobody expected an 8-8 Carolina team.

The Falcons are very consistent on defense too.

If by consistent, you mean they are consistently getting gashed in the run game and torched in the passing game, then yes I agree completely.

No disrespect to the Saints, but they aren't as complete as Carolina. Their defense wasn't as good as the media tried to make it out to be. They couldn't stop the run to save their life at times. They are the same team as they were in 2008 and 2007, except they blitz more. No where near as complete as Carolina with a Matt Moore quarterbacking the team. But that's just me. As for Atlanta and Tampa Bay, awful defenses. Won't survive in a division where one team has the best running game in the league and another has the best passing game in the league.

1. Carolina Panthers (12-4)**

2. New Orleans Saints (10-6)*

3. Atlanta Falcons (8-8)

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-11)

And what Qb is gonna lead you guys to this 12-4 turnaround? Moore? Man you guys put alot of stock in someone who played less than half a season. Will Peppers even be with you guys next year? Also how do you figure us not to be a strong candidate for repeat division winners? I dont see us getting any worse talent wise, we have about 17 players coming back from IR, and some young draft picks that have been waiting in the wings plus the draft. I dont see the Saints being worse next year, we may lose more games as we easily could have been 10-6 this year, but I dont see us fielding a worse team. As much as you guys hate to hear it, I think the Panthers are about to enjoy a few years at the bottom of the South, if not the cellar.
