Who crashes and burns? Who stays in the basement? Who goes on top?

After looking over all 4 rosters (I know some rosters will change and injuries will occur through the season) this is my conclusion.

Tampa Bay: 12-6

Most consistent team in the NFC South. Win the division but Brady’s magic starts to run out towards the end of the season and costs them some close games.

 

Carolina: 9-8

Season starts slow but go on a run the last half. Takes a while for the chemistry to build but the defense is solid, run game is consistent and Darnold makes plays when he needs to. On the bubble of the playoffs, either last one in or first one on the outside.

New Orleans: 7-10

Starts strong before crashing and burning. Cap casualties catch up with NO and teams figure out Winston and Hill a few games in.  

Atlanta: 4-13

Kyle Pitts will help but Mike Davis is far from spectacular. Defense is thin. New regime, new system, don’t look so great. Some momentum towards end of the season. Only wins will be in shootouts.
 

Thoughts?

Do we get an extra game like TB?

Saints will definitely bottom out this year. My tempered expectations has us in third with a close second to the falcons. I’m not sure why we are downplaying the falcons around here. They are going to be very competitive this year with Arthur smith at the helm. 

my hometown... has us in first with an injured Brady.

Not sure if we can pass Tampa. They bring everyone back from a championship team (very dominant one, at that) and Brady gets a full offseason to practice.  I do think second place is realistic and ultimately where we finish up 

 

Bucs: 12-5

Panthers: 10-7

Saints: 9-8

Falcons: 6-11

The lynchpin in our season revolves around Darnald,Horn, and the Oline. If all three perform at a high level we will be a playoff team. If they are mediocre we probably pick mid teens next year.

Tampa 13-4

Carolina 12-5

Atlanta 8-9

New Orleans 6-11

 

Atlanta defense was terrible last season. Pitts will add another dimension to the offense this season. Mike Davis will help get Atlanta those tough yardage when needed. They fixed the secondary some and should be better but the front four is going to be terrible. 
 

New Orleans is a mess. Winston and Hill won’t be the answer this season. Kamara and Thomas are really the only weapons they have. Drew Brees can help make other receivers look better than they are but he’s no longer there anymore. They need major help in the secondary outside of Lattimore.

That’s nice but winning the draft and free agency never really win you the regular season. Tampa and Denver were the only two teams in recent memory to have done well after a great free agency. I think KC had the best off season so far with free agency and the draft. They added Thuney and Reed in free agency. Traded for Brown. Then got Bolton, Humphrey and Trey Smith in the draft.
