    2009 conference records.

    Now that training camp is upon us, it is time to start predicting the records of each division in football.

    Here is my prediction for the upcoming year. What is yours?
    NFC:

    NFCN

    1- Minnesota
    2- GB
    3- Chicago
    4- Detroit

    NFCE

    1- Philly
    2- Giants
    3- Dallas
    4- Redskins

    NFCS

    1- N.O
    2- Atlanta
    3- Carolina
    4- TB

    NFCW

    1- Arizona
    2- St Louis
    3- S.F.
    4- Seattle



    AFC:

    AFCN

    1- Pittsburgh
    2- Baltimore
    3- Cincinnati
    4- Cleveland

    AFCE

    1- New England
    2- Miami
    3- NY Jets
    4- Buffalo

    AFCS

    1- Houston
    2- Indianapolis
    3- Tennessee
    4- Jacksonville

    AFCW

    1- San Diego
    2- Kansas City
    3- Oakland
    4- Denver


    I also predict that:

    The North will be the toughest conference in the NFC and the league as a whole.
    The West will be the weakest in the NFC

    The East will be the toughest division in the AFC
    The West will be the weakest in the AFC and in the league as a whole.


    Philadelphia will be the team to beat in the NFC
    San Diego will be the team to beat in the AFC
    Denver will be the worst team in the league.

    Re: 2009 conference records.

    So people are picking the Vikings to repeat without knowing who the starting QB is?

    Do you expect them to pick anyone else?
    This is a Viking fan site.
    Booty could be the starting QB and they would still pick the Vikes.

    I think any one of the 3 options could take this team to the playoffs.

    I don't see why it's really that questionable.

    We won it last year, and at worst we have a better QB situation that we did then.

    Jackson came on strong at the end of the season.
    Rosenfels is supposedly a good QB, although I'm not sold on him.
    When/if we get Favre we have a hall of famer behind center for at least 8 weeks if his 2008 is worth basing anything off of.

    It's only fair to assume Shiancoe will have made improvements over the offseason.
    Harvin adds another big play element to the offense if he plays to potential and can stay on the field.
    Loadholt has the ability to anchor the right side of the line.
    The defense has spent one more year together, the only real "new guy" playing on the defense is Johnson, who has limited experience, but enough athletic ability to play the cover 2 safety role with no problem.


    The only spot I have serious questions about is the center position.



    I'm worried about getting through the playoffs, not to them.

    I agree with your premise that our QB situation has no doubt improved, and we should win the division. A few reasons though aren't quite as clear cut. Shankoe may or may not improve, he had a career year last year, but I'm still not totally convinced that his dropsies won't come back.
    Harvin and Loadhalt are both rookies, rookies can't be depended on to improve a team right away, and every other team has a few new rookies with lots of potential.

    That's true, but I don't think it's fair to assume that a guy who never really got a chance as a starter will regress in his third year as one.

    And the positions that our rookies are theoretically replacing were considered weaknesses last season.


    And of course I have to agree that other teams have promising rookies, however, I think they have way more questions than we do.

    Detroit: Coming off of the worst season in NFL history, threat level from 0-10, I'll give them a generous 2.

    Chicago: Gained Cutler, Pace, and a boatload of draft picks. They've never played together. Their defense has been getting worse and worse since the 2006 season. They were a solid team last season, but despite their improvements in talent I think they're just all too new to eachother and inexperienced to play well enough for enough of the season to take the division crown. Threat level: 8.

    Green Bay: 6-10 in 2008. Their strength is still their corners. While they drafted Raji, and I think he will play the nose quite well I just don't think they have the right guys to play DE in the 3-4. Their LB corps is solid with Barnett and now Matthews on the outside and Kampmann rushing the passer. I don't think they'll be able to stop our running attack with 3 down linemen, especially with the lack of 3-4 type DEs. Threat level: 6.
