  • NFC WEST Power Ranking

    I dont know about everyone else but after the trades and the majority of relevant picks done and dusted. I'm loave to admit it but i think the Seahawks did more overall to improve there team, just behind the rams improvment.

    The seahwaks drafted Okung, Earl Thomas & Golden Tate while trading for Washington / Len Dale White

    The 49'ers are going smash-mouth again through the draft but have the weakest QB stable in the NFC West.

    So my power ranking would be at this point

    #1 Cardinals (previously #1)
    #2 Seahawks (previously #3)
    #3 49'ers (previously #2)
    #4 Rams (previously #4)

    Although the Rams have closed the gap, i cant see them getting a better record than the rest ... Seahawks and 49'ers are interchangeable but both have closed to within breathing distance of the Cardinals.

    Summary, the bottom teams are getting better and the top teams is falling down should mean a interesting year in the NFC West.

    Sam "Ram" Bradford everyone. Get on the train and see him carry us to NFC West glory .. in 2011.

    Nah, I'm not buying that the Cards are gonna remain at the top of this division, they just lost too much.

    Also I'm not near as high on the Seahags, Fat Lendale doesn't scare me, and Leon Washington broke his leg. They did add some pretty good rookies, but I don't see them as better than the Niners

    Which brings me to my next unfortunate point, I believe the ***** will run away with this division.

    I think King Sam is going to go through some growing pains this year, so I can't really claim the Rams will work their way out of the cellar just yet.

    Though don't rule out an 8-8 season!

      I'm unimpressed with the Seahawks. At quarterback, Hasselbeck has been bad for the last two years, and Whitehurst was a third stringer with the Chargers. The Seahawks still have the least talent in the division at runningback, and Earl Thomas isn't going to save their 23rd ranked defense. It's a coin toss between us and them as to who will be the worst in the division next year.

      I also think the losses of Warner and Boldin will really hurt the Cardinals offense, while the *****' focus on running and defense will pay off. At this stage, I'd predict:

      1. *****
      2. Cardinals
      3. Rams
      4. Seahawks

        I guess the season will tell but i think the Seahawks will be in the running for the diviosion title this year. Cardinals have lost a bunch but i think they get the top rank until the season starts.

          1. *****

          everyone else

          outside of that, it doesn't matter. The nfcw won't put multiple teams in the postseason for a few more years, the way I see it

            I'm gonna hate facing Patrick Willis, Navarow Bowman, and Taylor Mays!!! **** we are already injury prone, now this...

            Jackson is gonna have an extremely hard time running the ball against them, so we'll have to rely on Bradford and his mad skills to throw over the top of Mays. Meat heads vs our finesse offense...

                I'm scared of Mays laying out one of our puny WRs.

                    When the niners drafted Mays, I texted my 49er friend with a one word message. Considering this is a family site and all, just use your imagination.

                    Of course my feelings on Mays are on record here somewhere...

                      At least you get to see him twice a year now.



                      And for the power rankings, I think the Whiners definitely have the top spot right now.

                      Second, it's a crap shoot between us and the other two. But I think the Cards still have a slight advantage.

                          I think the cards are done for until they get a real QB. Loosing Warner is devastating, because you loose a great leader and field general. We all know Leinart can't fill those shoes.

                            Mays is 6'3 230. Jackson is 6'2 236. Bring it.

                            Mays can't wrap up and leasd with his shoulder all the time and is a liability in coverage. They can have him. Willis is great, no comment there. I like the Bowman pick as well, remains to be seen how he is however. I like the ***** moves although im just not keen on Mays and think he was drafted for potential more than anything else.

                              I agree, our STUD vs Mays in the open field, I'd take S-Jax every time.

                              But I was thinking more of Donnie, LR, and now Mardy coming across the middle :<

                                What NFC West team are you most worried about?
                                by Varg6
                                Out of the Tards, Squawks, and Whiners, who should we most fear this season?

                                It seems every season, the cardinals are going to have a delightful season, and with all the wonderful drafts, they still wind up stinking up the whole league. Mind you, I think this season they will be a big threat.

                                The Seahawks are still technically the kings of the NFC West, and until we reclaim our throne, it is theirs. That in my opinion is our #1 objective...at least for boosting confidence, is to beat the Seahawks...

                                The ***** and Frank Gore look to be even more of a threat. They had a decent season, and surprisingly are looking to become a good team, although I hate to admit it, I think that may be the case... (Why can't they always suck!? )

                                So...yes it is way too early to be making predictions like this, but what else is there to do but ponder about our Rams?

                                I think next season, if our cards are right, we're definitely reclaiming our rightful throne in the West. However, I doubt we'll be able to get a 1st round bye by any means with the schedule we have this season. It looks like a very difficult one, something...well we're not really used to. It can go either two ways, we're glorious, or chumps. I see (if everything goes according to plan...)

                                1. Rams 10-6
                                2. Seahawks 9-7
                                3. Cardinals 9-7
                                4. ***** 8-8, 9-7, perhaps

                                What do you guys think?

                                by laram0
                                Let's face it none of the other 3 teams in our Division are powerhouses. Unfortunately we have "probably" fallen to far behind for the Divison Title this season. We do have an opportunity in front of us to go on a very possible winning streak. Maybe get to 4-8 and hope that our Division foes (Cardinals & Seahawks) lose a game here or there that we don't expect.

                                NFC WEST STANDINGS
                                Seahawks (5-4)

                                The NFC West
                                by evil disco man
                                People have been calling the NFC West the weakest division in the NFL for years now. They can say what they want, but the fact is that the West has represented the NFC in 4 of the last 10 Super Bowls, more than any other division.

                                I don't know about you guys, but I enjoy rooting for other West teams in the playoffs to represent us well. If we can't beat 'em out during the season, I'd rather see them take it all the way than any other team. The only exception for me was rooting for the Steelers vs. Seahawks, only because I personally can't stand Hasselbeck, but I was pulling for them throughout the playoffs up to that point.

                                If you find it difficult rooting for our West rivals in the playoffs, remember that one benefit of other West teams making it far in the playoffs (or esp. into the SB) is that their roster and coaching staff is usually raided by other teams afterward, boding well for the Rams in following seasons.

                                Go NFC West!

                                Two and a half weeks into the new season and the best conclusion I can come to about the state of affairs?

                                This must be Hollywood.

                                There are more sub-plots and scandals, more topsy-turvy oddities, and more budding Cinderella stories than can be found at the original Mickey Mouse Club auditions.

                                If Walt were alive, he’d be rolling over in his grave.

                                As advertised, our NFC West teams have commenced to knocking the crap out of each other, almost like the only feasible movie script that could be applied here. This division is as much up for grabs now as it was two weeks ago.

                                If I had just woke up from a month-long coma, it wouldn’t surprise me a bit to find out that the San Francisco ***** have the same record as the Houston Texans and the Detroit Lions. But I’d probably hock up a parakeet when I learned that they all are sitting at the tops of their divisions with 2-0 records.

                                Is it a fluke?

                                Duh.



                                Here in the West are housed four of the best running backs in the league. Arguably the two best quarterbacks in the NFC, and a selection of wide receivers that would send any newbie offensive coordinator back to having wet dreams, and any opposing “D” man back to AA. And to top it all off, with all this fire-power that resides in this one division, the undefeated team has exactly one of these players, and hasn’t even put up more than 190 yards of offense in either “victory.”

                                Suggestion? Let the movie play out.

                                Assessment? We got this. Is that a bold assessment? Not really when you consider this.

                                It’s a game of inches. About six more of them off the foot of Wilky’s leg would have taken away one of the Niner’s victories, and had they not had an extra layer of skin on their teeth, the Cardinals would have taken away the other.

                                Mike Nolan has got to be sweating more than Mike Vick watching Old Yellar.

                                In the mean-time, those same Cardinals beat up on the Seahawks for the great majority of that victory, and come this week, the rest of their confidence will be shot – at home – at the hands of Carson Palmer and Chad Johnson.

                                If you look at it reasonably and rationally, the only teams that appear to have more upside headed their way than down are the Rams and the Cards and I still don’t see the Cards pulling it out in the first year with their new coach.

                                The Rams on the other hand are making positive strides with the defense, and Marc Bulger and the boys will be exploding very quickly.

                                Who knows, maybe all of these teams will finish under .500, but I doubt it.

                                But one thing I do know is that Hollywood has invaded the NFL, the Rams have been written in as the sucker-punch, and the 'Niners division title is about as likely as O.J Simpson buying a ten-speed and going Mormon.

                                .
