NFC East Dallas Cowboys RynoAid Strengths: Ryno inherits a Dallas offense that has several strong pieces at the skill positions. QB Tony Romo (90 ovr) has several good weapons at his disposal. These weapons include Dez Bryant (85 ovr), Miles Austin (85 ovr), Laurent Robinson (83 ovr), and veteran All Pro TE Jason Witten (96 ovr). Romo has proven he can put up gaudy statistics and win early on. Look for the pressure to be on the QB to perform late in the season. Robinson’s emergence as a legitimate threat makes it very difficult for defenses to key on any particular Cowboy receiver. Defensively, Dallas has an exceptional linebacking corps, led by All Pro Demarcus Ware (99 ovr). Opposite Ware at OLB is the 5th year linebacker out of Purdue Anthony Spencer (86 ovr). In the middle is a young and promising Sean Lee (85 ovr) and consistent veteran Bradie James (82). Anchoring the 3-4 defense is stout Jay Ratliff (91 ovr) Weaknesses: The offensive line for Coach Ryno’s team is abysmal, particularly the interior. Rookie RT Tyron Smith (85 ovr) shows a ton of potential and is the lone bright spot here. While halfbacks Demarco Murray (85 ovr) and Felix Jones (84 ovr) make a solid duo, both are very injury prone. On the other side of the ball, defensive ends Hatcher (77 ovr) and Kenyon Koleman (79) are mediocre at best. The secondary is also mediocre, as veteran captain CB Terrence Newman (85) is pushing 33 and will seemingly regress. CB Michael Jenkins is young and shows a bit of promise, but beyond that the CB position is thin in Dallas. FS Gerald Sensabaugh (77 ovr) is a big weakness. The former Tar Heel has slowed down quite a bit, and now possesses 85 speed. Outlook: Once labeled “America’s Team,” the Cowboys have fallen from grace. With a $1.2 billion stadium and pseudo-celebrity owner (the guy was in Entourage), football fever is hotter than ever in Big D. Expect nothing less than a playoff birth to satisfy the Cowboy faithful. Given the personnel, Coach Ryno can make this a very real possibility in a very difficult NFC. Philadelphia Eagles @SimFBallCritic Strengths: QB Michael Vick (91 ovr) is as elusive as they get, which could come in handy in a division with the likes of Jason Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck, Demarcus Ware, and Brian Orakpo. Vick has a very strong supporting cast, starting with HB LeSean McCoy (94 ovr). WR Jeremy Maclin (87 ovr), Desean Jackson (86 ovr), and Steve Smith (81 ovr), give Vick plenty of options. LT Jason Peters (97 ovr), RT Todd Herremans (88 ovr), and LG Evan Mathis (91 ovr) solidify the Eagles up front. Defensively, the acquisition of two key free agents have made this an imposing unit. RE Trent Cole (96) and FA pick up Jason Babin (93) provide a fierce pass rush. Cullen Jenkins (89 ovr) and Mike Patterson (83 ovr) anchor a rock solid defensive line. The other FA pick up, Nnamdi Asomugha (94 ovr), improves an already stellar CB group for the “Iggles”. Asante Samuel (93 ovr), and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (82 ovr) give the Birds the ability to lock up 3 WRs in man and allowing those DEs to feast. Weaknesses: Michael Vick’s tendancy to get hurt is a huge concern for Philly, and have many questioning the contract extension he recently received. If he goes down, Vince Young (76 ovr) is a huge liability as a back up. RG Danny Watkins and C Jason Kelce are low rated positions, 75 and 74, respectively. I do believe the offensive line overall is a strength overall, however. Also, finding a redzone threat might be hard for Vick, as he has no receiver over 6’0 other than TE Brent Celek (82 ovr) Defensively, the linebacking corps is atrocious. ROLB Moise Fokou (76 ovr), MLB Jamar Chaney (78 ovr), and LOLB Brian Rolle (67 ovr) are a big sore spot for Philadelphia. LOLB Casey Matthews (64 ovr) was supposed to be a solution to the Eagles LB woes, but the little brother of Clay Matthews has been a major disappointment thus far. Additionally, FS Nate Allen (76 ovr) and SS Kurt Coleman (75 ovr) are liabilities. Outlook: After Philadelphia’s spending spree in free agency, it’s safe to say the Eagles expect nothing less than a division title. In an ultra-competitive NFC, it might take a division title to guarantee a playoff spot. New York Giants I Peench Strengths: The most obvious strength of the Giants offensively is the passing attack. The recent ascension of QB Eli Manning into an elite signal caller (96 ovr) has sent waves of fear throughout the division. While a bit undersized, his weapons are incredible in the open field. WR Hakeem Nicks (94 ovr), Victor Cruz (88), and Mario Manningham (81 ovr) will open things up, while big bodied TE Jake Ballard (77 ovr) is an emerging threat at TE. The GMEN also have capable HBs in Ahmad Bradshaw (88 ovr) and Brandon Jacons (84 ovr) Defensively, the Giants maintain their reputation for elite pass rushing ability. DEs Justin Tuck (96 ovr), Jason Pierre-Paul (96 ovr), and Osi Umenyiiora (91) are a force to be reckon with. DTs Chris Canty (85) and Linval Jospeh (80 ovr) are very solid in the interior. Joseph is a bit raw, but will project very nicely. The secondary is also rock solid, consisting of CB Corey Webster (92 ovr), CB Terrell Thomas (85 ovr), CB Aaron Ross (81 ovr), CB Prince Amukamara (80 ovr), FS Antrel Rolle (81 ovr), and SS Kenny Phillips (88 ovr). Weaknesses: The most glaring weakness is the Giants porous offensive line. RG Chris Snee (91 ovr) and LG Dave Diehl (83 ovr) are the only serviceable offensive lineman. The rest of the unit is just awful, and could cause Eli and company major headaches season 1. With many elite pass rushers in the NFC East, things could unravel quickly for Big Blue. On defense, the linebacking corps is mediocre at best. LOLB Michael Boley (79 ovr), MLB Jonathon Goff (79 ovr), and ROLB Mathias Kiwanuka (78 ovr) are at the top of the depth chart now, but rookie Jacquin Williams (71 ovr) is a sensational athlete that could push for early playing time. Outlook: If Eli wants to continue to call himself ELIte, he needs to start winning division titles. Simple as that. The defense is good enough to take them there, but serious questions linger about that offensive line. If they can hold up, the Giants will be difficult to beat. Washington Redskins Matrix Monkey Strengths: Offensively, the skins have two very capable TEs. Fred Davis (85 ovr) has good speed and has the ability to stretch the field. Opposite Davis is veteran TE Chris Cooley (84 ovr). Cooley is more of a possession guy who is willing to do the dirty work across the middle. 2nd year LT Trent Williams shows a lot of promise at LT, at 86 overall. Rookie HB Roy Helo (79 ovr) is a star in the making. On defense, perennial stud London Fletcher (94 ovr) anchors an impressive linebacking corps. Brian Orakpo (91 ovr) and Ryan Kerrigan (85 ovr) are two emerging stars at the critical OLB position in the 3-4 defense. The secondary is strong as well, consisting of CB Deangelo Hall (86 ovr), CB Josh Wilson (83 ovr), FS Oshiomogho Atogwe (91 ovr) and SS Laron Landry (90 ovr). Weaknesses: A ton of holes on this Redskins team, and they start under center. Rex Grossman (74) and John Beck (74) are terrible quarterbacks, to say the least. Aside from Williams, the offensive line is is very weak. The WR corps is pedestrian, but is led by veteran Santana Moss (83 ovr). Defensively the Redskins aren’t in terrible shape. Their front 3 of LE Adam Carriker (77 ovr), RE Stephen Bowen (77 ovr), and DT Barry Cofield (83 ovr) are simply not good enough. The Redskins will have to rebuild, and start up front. Outlook: Sexy Rexy won’t set the world on fire, and fans recognize this. Under Matrix's control, look for the Redskins to be compete for a top 2 finish in the division. This will really test Matrix's skill on the sticks. NFC North Chigaco Bears (CPU) Strengths: Kristen Cavallari’s hubby Jay Cutler has all the necessary tools to succeed at QB. At 87 overall, his 98 throw power will give opposing secondaries headaches. HB Matt Forte (93 ovr) is more than capable of carrying the load. The Bears have historically been known as a defensive team. Things are no different this year. RE Julius Peppers (97 ovr) and LE Israel Idonije (84 ovr) should keep opposing QBs on their heels. All world linebackers Brian Urlacher (96 ovr) and Lance Briggs (92 ovr) will be stout as always against the run. CBs Charles Tillman (89 ovr) and Tim Jennings (81 ovr) provide a nice duo in the secondary. Weaknesses: The highest rated offensive lineman is Chris Williams (81 ovr). Overall, the line is extremely weak. On top of that, Cutler has no legitimate targets. Devin Hester is a freak athlete, but his route running is very raw. Defensively, the safety position is a gaping hole. The Bears will start FS Brandon Merriweather (73 ovr) and SS Major Wright (79 ovr) Outlook: The CPU Bears are going to struggle in a good AFC North. Until Cutler can get some help around him, that talent on defense is going to be wasted. Detroit Lions HovaTheGodMC Strengths: Led by the tandum of QB Matthew Stafford (90 ovr) and WR Calvin Johnson (95 ovr), the Lions present matchup nightmares for opposing user defenses. Johnson is simply impossible to cover with his blend of size and speed. A solid offensive line led by LG Rob Simms (88 ovr) should keep Stafford’s shoulder in one piece this season. HB Jahvid Best (84 ovr) and TE Brandon Pettigrew (84 ovr) are two nice emerging pieces on offense. Defensively, the Lions have a very good front for led by the former Cornhusker Ndamukong Suh (92 ovr). Rookie DT Nick Fairley (79 ovr) and DEs Kyle Vanden Bosch (83 ovr) and Cliff Avril (84 ovr) complete the DL. Linebackers Justin Durant (82 ovr), Stephen Tullock (90 ovr), and Deandre Levy (82 ovr) account for a young and above average linebacking corps. Weaknesses: The most obvious need for the Lions is another threat at WR to compliment “Calvo”. #2 WR Nate Burleson (80 ovr) will simply not cut it for Hova’s high flying offense. Look for him to make a move to secure a legitimate #2 at some point. On defense, the CB group leaves something to be desired. Outside of #1 Chris Houston (84 ovr), the rest of this unit is a big liability. Eric Wright (78 ovr), and Alphonso Smith (75 ovr) will need to step up and step up quickly, otherwise the Lions will have trouble defending the pass. Outlook: With the talent on this team, anything short of a playoff birth will be a disappointment. Look for the Lions to be strong contenders to take the division title. Green Bay Packers Masler Strengths: All everything QB Aaron Rodgers (99 ovr) has a ton of weapons at his disposal, including: WR Greg Jennings (95 ovr), WR Jordy Nelson (88 ovr), WR Donald Driver (82 ovr), and TE Jermichael Finely (89 ovr). The Packers also have a sensational offensive line, anchored by RG Josh Sitton (93 ovr). Defensively, they are a complete unit. Ryan Pickett (85 ovr) and BJ Raji (84 ovr) hold down the front three. Linebackers Clay Matthews (94 ovr) and Desmond Bishop (88 ovr) anchor an impressive linebacking corps. The secondary is ridiculously talented with CB Charles Woodson (93 ovr), Tramon Williams (90 ovr), FS Nick Collins (95 ovr), and SS Morgan Burnett (85 ovr). Weaknesses: Very hard to find any holes on this roster without nit picking. HB is a position that could use an upgrade with Ryan Grant at only a 79 overall. Jarius Wynn is a weakness at RE at a 74 overall, and the Packers could use another linebacker as ROLB Erik Walden is only a 74 overall. Outlook: The Packers have the most talented in the NFL. Anything less than a playoff birth would be a HUGE disappointment for Packer faithful. The pressure is on Coach Masler to put up this year. Minnesota Vikings (CPU) Strengths: The Vikings don’t have a whole lot to work with on offense. They have two incredible playmakers in All Pro HB Adrian Peterson (99 ovr) and WR Percy Harvin (84 ovr). Outside of that, they have a decent line led by veteran G Steve Hutchinson (87 ovr). The line has no glaring holes to speak of. Defensively, the Vikings’ front 4 are vicious. RE Jarad Allen (98 ovr) and LE Brain Robinson (84 ovr) can bring the heat, while DT Kevin Williams (95 ovr) is a premier run stuffer. MLB EJ Henderson and OLB Chad Greenway are both very good players, and both rated at 88 ovr. Antoine Winfield is a solid #1 CB in the secondary (91 ovr). Weaknesses: QB Christian Ponder has a lot of work to do before his starting job isn’t questioned on a weekly basis. At 74 overall, he hopes to progress quickly. Outside of Harvin, Ponder has no threat (WR or TE) over an 80 to throw to. This will certainly impact his development. Defensively, the Vikings are pretty solid. The secondary has a few holes, however. FS Husain Abdullah (80 or) and SS Jamarca Sanford (77 ovr) are a below average duo. Additionally, the Vikings are thin at CB after Winfield. Their second highest rated CB is Cedric Griffin (76 ovr). Outlook: The Vikings just hope to put together a winning season. It may be very difficult considering Ponder and the help around him. AP and that defense will have to carry the load. NFC South Tampa Bay Buccaneers The Natural Strengths: The strength of this offense in its stability. No one player stands out, but QB Josh Freeman (80 ovr), HB Legarrette Blount (80 ovr), and TE Kellen Winslow (88 ovr) project very nicely. The offensive line, led by LT Donald Penn (91 ovr), has some solid pieces. On defense, DT Gerald McCoy (80 ovr) is an emerging star. Additionally, CBs Aqib Talib (89 ovr) and Ronde Barber (84 ovr) provide a solid tandem in the secondary. Barber has slowed down considerably, but this wily veteran will rely on instincts and solid zone coverage skills to shut down opposing WRs. Weaknesses: Offensively, Mike Williams (79 ovr) and Arrelious Benn (76 ovr) leave much to be desired at WR. They do have a bit of size, however, something Coach Natural covets. LG and RT are huge holes on the offensive line, and the linebacker unit doesn’t have a single player rated above a 77 or. FS Tanard Jackson (83 ovr) and SS Sean Jones (78 ovr) are capable, but slow, possessing 86 speed each. They could be a huge liability in coverage. Outlook: Huge year for Coach Nat. He has a mediocre team in a very difficult division. Season 1 will surely be a test of his meddle. Nothing sure of a playoff birth will satisfy Coach. Atlanta Falcons antcap24 Strengths: One of the most talented teams in the NFL, its hard not to write paragraphs and paragraphs about this team’s strengths. QB Matt Ryan (89 ovr) has a ton of support around him, starting with WRs Roddy White (96 ovr) and rookie WR Julio Jones (86 ovr). TE Tony Gonzalez (91 ovr) is a perfect redzone threat, and HB Michael Turner (94 ovr) should be nightmarish behind an above average offensive line. On the other side of the ball, DE John Abraham (94 ovr), DT Jonathon Babineaux (89 ovr), and DE Ray Edwards (86 ovr) anchor a devastating defensive line. MLB Curtis Loftin (90 ovr) and OLB Sean Witherspoon (88 ovr) are playmakers, while the secondary is held down by the likes of CB Brent Grimes (89 ovr) and CB Daunta Robinson (82 ovr). Weaknesses: Tough to find any weak spots on this roster. The Falcons do need some help at RG, as starter Joe Hawler is a measly overall. Mike Peterson at LOLB (79 ovr) is also a weakness, relatively speaking. Outlook: A top five roster and coach, AntCap must be salivating at the restart ratings. He is this beat writer’s favorite to win the NFC South, as he will get back into his groove and be tough to stop. Carolina Panthers fuzzyl0gic Strengths: Coach Fuzzy has a very solid team at his disposal. QB Cam Newton (88 ovr) is an absolute monster for a rookie, and will progress rapidly. A solid HB duo of DeAngelo Williams (86 ovr) and Jonathon Stewart (85 ovr) should keep the pressure off of Cam. A stellar offensive line consisting of Jordan Gross (93 ovr), LG Travelle Wharton (87 ovr), C Ryan Kalil (91 ovr), RT Jeff Otah (85 ovr) should keep Cam on his feet and allow the running game to flourish. Steve Smith remains a deadly playmaker at age 32 (95 ovr), and TEs Greg Olsen (86 ovr) and Jeremy Shockey (82 ovr) provide Cam with some nice options in the red zone. On defense, the Panthers definitely have some holes. However, they have the necessary pieces to build around. DE Charles Johnson (91 ovr) is an elite pass rusher, MLB Jon Beason (97 ovr) is a monster in the middle, and CB Chris Gamble (93 ovr) can lock down the best of receivers. ROLB James Anderson is emerging as a big time playmaker as well, with a rating of 88 overall. Weaknesses: The only real weakness on offense is a need for a legitimate WR opposite of Smith. #2 WR David Gettis (74 ovr) just doesn’t do enough to detract attention away from Smith. Defensively, there are a few more weak spots that opposing offenses will attack. Outside of Charles Johnson, the defensive line is pedestrian. LE Greg Hardy (78 ovr), and DT Terrel McClain (72 ovr) will just not cut it as starters. Additionally, the Panthers lack depth at CB. Captain Munnerlyn is their #2, and he is a mediocre 75 overall. FS Sherrod (75 ovr) is another big weakness for this team. Outlook: No doubt Fuzzy is playoffs or bust. The south will be ultra competitive. I have no doubt this team will win more than 8 games, but will it be enough to propel them to a playoff birth? New Orleans Saints capp34 Strengths: The Saints live and die by the right arm of All Pro QB Drew Brees (99 ovr). WR Marques Colston (92 ovr), WR Lance Moore (82 ovr), and TE Jimmy Graham (95 ovr) provide Brees with plenty of options. HB Darren Sproles (88 ovr) is quite a pest catching the ball out of the backfield as well. The offensive line is imposing, featuring G Carl Nicks (97 ovr) and G Jhari Evans (96 ovr). On defense, the Saints lack star power, but have several solid pieces in key positions. DTs Aubrayo Franklin (86 ovr) and Senderick Ellis (84 ovr) provide run support, while DE Will Smith (87 ovr) can get after opposing QBs. Rookie DE Cameron Jordan (79 ovr) should progress into a legitimate starter. Veteran MLB Jonathon Vilma’s (84 ovr) leadership is not to be overlooked. The Saints have a solid CB duo as well, with Jabari Greer (90 ovr) and Tracy Porter (80 ovr). Weaknesses: Very, very hard to find a weakness on this team, particularly on offense. Defensively speaking, the Saints just lack a true playmaker (only one player 90 ovr). Also, the OLB position leaves much to be desired. ROLB Scott Shanle and LOLB Jo-Lonn Dunbar are rated 75 and 72 overall, respectively. Outlook: Again, this division is very difficult. Coach Nat, Coach Ant, and Coach Fuzzy will undoubtedly have their teams primed for a playoff push, and I feel strongly the Saints will too. Playoffs or bust for this squad. Will need to come up big in division play. NFC West Arizona Cardinals brizz98 Strengths: Offensively, look no further than All World WR Larry Fitzgerald (97 ovr). With superior size and strength, he is a matchup nightmare. TE Todd Heap (83 ovr) is another big target that could be a nice redzone threat for Coach Brizz. Unfortunately, the Cardinals don’t have much else to offer offensively. A solid offensive line anchored by LG Daryn Colledge (88 ovr) will need to come up big this season. On the other side of the ball, the Cardinals show much more promise. DEs Calias Campbell (87 ovr) and Darnell Docket (89 ovr) are a force to be reckon with. MLB Daryl Washington (85 overall) is an athletic playmaker who should have a big year. Rookie CB Patrick Peterson (85 ovr) shows a tremendous amount of promise, and will be guided by a great safety duo of Kerry Rhodes (87 ovr) and Adrian Wilson (92 ovr). Weaknesses: The Cardinals need a lot of help on offense. Will Kevin Kolb (78 ovr) be the answer at QB? If not, look for the Cardinals to move on…and quickly. They need to hope their running backs progress nicely and find some new targets to not allow defenses to key on Fitzgerald. Defensively, the Cards need a nose tackle. Dan Williams (75 ovr) is a definitive weakness at this point. LOLB Clark Haggans (77 ovr) and ROLB Joey Porter (81 ovr) are both old and regressing, so the Cardinals will need to address that as well. Outlook: Unless Coach Brizz has some serious stick skills, it’s safe to say a playoff spot will be tough to come by. With two other good users in his division, and with how difficult wild card spots will be to come by this year, Brizz might have to start looking to rebuild sooner rather than later. San Francisco 49ers KillerNuts Strengths: Coming off a hall of fame career at LSU, Coach Killer Nuts has ascended to the NFL. During his tenure in the Bayou, he established a reputation for smashmouth football. Given the personnel at his disposal, he should be a nice fit. The offense starts with the run game, and All Pro Frank Gore (93 ovr). Leading the charge on a solid offensive line is LG Mike Iupati (90 ovr). QB Alex Smith has risen from “bust” status, and now sits and a very competent 85 overall. TE Vernon Davis (97 ovr) is as explosive as they get, and should keep the Niners balanced. The defense is quite simply the best in the game. DE Justin Smith (99 ovr), MLB Patrick Willis (99 ovr), MLB Navarro Bowmen (89 ovr), OLB Aldon Smith (88 ovr), CB Carlos Rogers (90 ovr), and SS Donte Whitner (88 ovr) highlight an imposing unit. There are simply no holes on this side of the ball. Weaknesses: The Niners weaknesses lay solely on the offensive side of the ball. First and foremost, Michael Crabtree (83 ovr) has not proven to be the #1 WR he was projected to be coming out of Texas Tech. He and Vernon Davis are the only legitimate aerial threats for the Niners, with Josh Morgan (78 ovr) not providing a sufficient enough option across from Crabtree. The Niners also have some issues on the right side of their line with RG Adam Snyder (78 ovr) and RT Anthony Davis (77 ovr), the latter of which could project well in a few years. Outlook: I firmly believe this team has the talent to compete with anyone in the NFC. It will be interesting to see how Coach Killer acclimates himself to the NFL environment. If he can do so early, watch out for the Niners to take the West. St. Louis Rams (CPU) Strengths: The offensive starts and ends with HB Steven Jackson (92 ovr). If he can’t stay healthy this season, life will be difficult for St. Louis. WR Brandon Lloyd (88 ovr) is the only other offensive player of note. QB Sam Bradford (80 ovr) has had a few injuries, but still looks poised to be a top flight QB in a few years. Defensively, the Rams have a few bright spots. LE Chris Long (91 ovr) is finally out of his father’s shadow and player at a very high level. Across from him rookie RE Robert Quinn (77 ovr) looks to be a star in the making. The former UNC Tar Heel has exceptional athleticism and should develop into an elite pass rusher. Another young star on defense is MLB James Laurinaitis (88 ovr), who is a tackling machine. Weaknesses: There are weaknesses all over the place for this Rams team. The interior of the offensive line needs serious work, and they need to find some more weapons for Bradford to develop with. On defense, the secondary really needs a burst of athleticism. No starter on defense has above 88 speed. OLB and DT are also huge needs for the Rams moving forward. Outlook: Cellar of the NFC West. Steven Jackson demands a trade this offseason. He wants to win before his career is over. Seattle Seahawks XLenceofXQtion Strengths: Seattle’s offense is nothing to write home about. They do have some nice pieces, however, and Coach XLenceofXQtion should be able to build around them. HB Marshawn Lynch (90 ovr) leads the way, and looks to have a big year for the Hawks. WR Sidney Rice (85 ovr) is a match up nightmare at 6 foot 4, and TE Zach Miller (82 ovr) is both big and athletic. RT Russel Okung (81 ovr) and RG Robert Gallery (85 ovr) should pave the way for Marshawn to do the dizzle. On defense, it all starts with star DE Chris Clemmons 92 ovr). RE Red Bryant (85 ovr) is a hoss, and should be a great run stuffer. DTs Alan Branch (84 ovr) and Brandon Mebane (83) round out a very solid defensive line. MLB David Hawthorne (87 ovr) should rack up the tackles, and take advantage of a good defensive line. The secondary is very, very good. CBs Marcus Trufant (87 ovr) and Brandon Browner (81 ovr) are a respectable duo. Brower is 6’4, and could match up well with the likes of Larry Fitzgerald. Seattle has two very promising young safeties in FS Earl Thomas (87 ovr) and SS Kam Chancellor (85 ovr). Weaknesses: The biggest weakness is QB. Tavaris Jackson (79 ovr) will struggle, even under the tutelage of coach XLenceofXQtion. The right side of the offensive line is awful, with ratings of 69 and 73. Also, there is no other legitimate WR outside of Sidney Rice. On defense the only weaknesses are at OLB. LOLB KJ Wright is only a 76 overall, while counterpart ROLB Leroy Hill is seemingly OVER the hill at a 79 overall. Outlook: With a solid coach, I see no reason the Seahawks can’t compete for a division title. With the playoff picture being so narrow in the NFC, Coach XLenceofXQtion might have to take down San Francisco to reach the playoffs. I’m sure anything less than that would be considered a disappointment.
