Featuring the NFC West Al Michaels: "I'm Al Michaels here with my good buddy John Madden and we're here to give a little insight into how the first season of the TMFL should pan out. We had to sucker John out of his retirement and away from his Brett Favre shrine to get him here, so I hope you guys enjoy." John Madden: "Yeah you know we have a great football season ahead of his this year. The NFL is so full of great players that you are bound to see some great games- probably with a lot of great plays in them because that's what great players do... you know, make great plays." A: "Safe to say we are off and running I guess. Now, we're going to cover each division separately, starting with the NFC West where we have Coach JFace907 and his Seattle Seahawks, the Arizona Cardinals and Coach TEClemson53 , JohnnyClutch with the San Francisco 49ers, and Matrix Monkey trying to keep Sam Bradford alive with the St. Louis Rams." J: "This is a really interesting division Al, at first glance you really have to go with the Niners to run away considering the competition- but there is a lot of young talent and who knows what could happen." A: "There are a number of story lines coming into this season; as John mentioned you have the Niners trying to go one step further and make it to the Super Bowl, a Seattle team that has a hype train behind Russell Wilson that is building with every day, Sam Bradford and the Rams itching to take that next step to being competitive after a woeful 2 win season, and a Cardinal's team that could take huge strides if there was some solid quarterback play." J: "Ya Al when you are looking at this divisional race I think it really comes down to one player- Russell Wilson. If he is ready to go from the get go - a big if - Seattle could certainly be a contender. He has a good running game behind him with Marshawn Lynch and a healthy Sidney Rice could really help Wilson. There are a lot of quarterbacks in this league that have good arms, and there are lot that can extend plays with their legs, but Russell Wilson has all of that and an X factor - he is just a winner. You can't coach that." A: "Good point John, looking back at last season everyone was expecting St Louis to turn the corner after coming very close to finishing ahead of the Seahawks for the division- and out of nowhere the 49ers come up and are a win away from the Super Bowl. Certainly the 49ers are the favorite, but if that 2011 scenario were to play out, you would have to expect that the Seahawks would be the team to come out of the blue and capture that division crown." J: "I'd have to agree with you there Al. With how shaky the quarterback play is in Arizona, and the Rams obviously needing some work after last year, it has to come down to Seattle and San Francisco." A: "Yeah you know John, as much as I love what Russell Wilson is doing up North, I think you still have to believe that San Francisco is going to take this division. Alex Smith is finally playing up to expectations, and their running game only got stronger with the additions of LaMichael James and Brandon Jacobs. Seattle just might be my Wild Card pick though." J: "I'm going to go out on a limb and say Seattle finds a way to take this division. Marshawn Lynch is going to have a great year if Wilson can play well- not to mention if things don't work out with the rookie they have a really good QB behind him with Matt Flynn. I'm taking the Seahawks out West." A: "Well folks with that we are going to take a small break here, we're going to take a look at the AFC East tomorrow sometime- stay tuned!" Or?
