8-8

Miss the playoffs, barely.

Atlanta wins division.

Cam regresses a bit yardage wise, but still has a good season by cutting down on INT's.

D is a mess and will keep us down.

Kuechly Beason and Anderson each get over 100 tackles...TD plays all 16 games and gets around 40 tackles

Thomas Davis converts back to safety and makes the Pro Bowl.

Really though; Kuechly will lead the team in tackles and second in interceptions.

Boom.

9-7 will not get in the NFC playoffs this year. This isn't 2004

Final Record: 9-7 (losses to Atlanta on the road, New Orleans on the road, Chicago on the road, Giants, Eagles on the road, Kansas city on the road, and the opener in TB :o ) I don't see us being a very good road team. 7-1 at home, 2-6 on the road

Miss the playoffs due to the Chicago loss and/or the Philly loss (playoff teams are San Fran, Green Bay, Atlanta, Dallas, Philly, Chicago)

Cam has another great season and replicates his passing yards, while his rushing yards dip a bit (most going to stewart, williams, and tolbert). The screen play is our best offensive play. We run it early and often. Unfortunately, the play is ran a little too much and it leads to a costly pick or two which draws ire from the huddle faithful and the questioning of Chud begins.

Greg Olsen challenges smitty for the leader of receptions. Olsen is involved in a ton of plays and is Cam's safety blanket.

Our offense leads the league in big plays (again). Plays of over 20 yards happen repeatedly (a large number coming on the back of #28 and the option/screen game)

We lead the league in rushing and have a top 12 passing attack. We average 28 points a game. However, we also field the 3rd worst pass defense in the league
Defensive stand outs are Keuchly, CJ, James Anderson
Defensive strugglers are: our entire secondary (excuses made will be lack of talent/depth and a lack of pass rush)

Special teams will be near the bottom of the league. Mare wins the job and does a decent job on kickoffs. Unfortunately, he can't kick everyone into the endzone and we allow a Kick Return touchdown as well as a Punt Return touch down. Mare also is responsible for the season opener loss due to a missed FG at the end of regulation.

All in all 2012 will be viewed as a great step forward by most of the sane huddlers (and a colossal bomb by the few overly optomistic that believe we are on the doorstep of a lombardi)

See - 2012 Super Bowl Champs

I think otherwise. The NFC has so many good teams and is so competitive, I see a log jam either around 9-7 or 10-6. Given the cross division and conference match-ups this year, I can definitely see this happening.

Sorry, I guess I should have said NFC wildcard.

I really dont think 9-7 will win the division. As for the wildcards, the NFCN is currently the best in the NFL, and in all honesty they will have the two wildcards. The NFCE will prob be improved as well. As for the south, the Saints* and falcons will still be good

10-6 will prob be the 6th seed in the NFC imo

Yeah i agree i think 10 wins will get you in the wild card this year but you never know maybe 9 wins can

11-5 NFC South Champs.
4-2 in division.
Undefeated at home.
Who knows how deep we will go, Playoffs are a different animal entirely.
Cam's numbers comparable to last year, though somewhat less ground and more air numbers. Less INTs.
Smitty has similar year to last year.
Olsen breaks out.
LaFell dat deal, either Murph or Gettis will get the #3 spot and do well.
Double Trouble does well, though they will be catching more passes and screens than ever, they will still combine for double digit TDs on the ground. Tolbert will get mostly air numbers but if either RB goes down he will do well in their stead.
Top 5 O-Line.
Top 3 Offense in NFL.
Joe Adams gets at least two or three returns for TDs, but outside him STs still suck mostly and are an achilles heel.
Kuech DROY.
Norman 5+ INTs.
D-Line combines for 30+ sacks. CJ shows why he got paid, Hardy doubles his production from last year. Terrell McClain breaks out. Altogether Defense has around 40 sacks.
Defense combines for 25+ INTs and 15+ fumble recoveries.
Nakamura is seviceable but Safeties again are an achilles heel. You know I'm right.
Defense is Top 15 overall, but Top 10 in turnovers and sacks. Very good for fantasy owners.
WE DON'T GET BIT BY INJURY BUG. There will be injuries but nothing like last season.

Most points scored by any team
Highest rushing yardage by any team
Highest yards per carry of any team
Cam throws for 4,100+ yards, 32 TDs, and less than 12 INTs while rushing for 500+ yards and 8 TDs
Lafell makes the pro bowl on the heels of a 900+ yard season and 10+ TDs
Our three-headed monster in the backfield (Tolbert + Double Trouble) rush for a combined 1600 yards and 32 TDs
Adams gets 3 TDs on returns

12-4 record, win the NFC South, playoffs
Defense is still a little porous, but better than last season which allows our offense to win the shootouts

Cam gets MVP*


* If we win Super Bowl
