NFL Picks: 2009 NFC Preview & Predictions

The start of NFL training camps is right around the corner with the NFL Pre-Season beginning in less than 3 weeks! While technically true that every team has a shot at the NFL Vince Lombardi Trophy in September the fact remains that some will just be entertaining pipe dreams.

The NFL for the most part has created extreme parity making it an interesting challenge in identifying what NFL teams are going to be able to navigate successfully through the season.

No matter, it’s that time of the year where I analyze this year’s lineup and boldly predict the final standings.


Listed are my projected NFL Picks for the NFC Conference, and division by division picks for the finishing lineup.


N.Y. GIANTS ……….. With the exception Plaxico departing, not much has changed. G-Men should win division.

DALLAS…………T.O. is gone so Romo could be challenged to move offense. Hopefully for Dallas fans, without Jessica now he’ll do just that.

PHILADELPHIA ……The thing that continues to hurt the NFL Picks Eagles is McNabb’s propensity to not stay healthy. This is a rather high NFL Picks finish if he doesn’t.

WASHINGTON …………..Owner Schneider just about has ruined this franchise. Should be looking for a new coach by midway through the NFL Picks season.


NEW ORLEANS …………. The Saints struggled last NFL Picks season with inconsistency but with Drew Brees at the controls they’ll never be out of it, plus they grabbed Def Coordinator Greg Williams.

ATLANTA ………… If QB Ryan can duplicate last season’s NFL Picks success the Falcons should be in the thick of it. However, their defense is suspect after loss of free agents.

CAROLINA …….. Just not sold on QB Delhomme being able to guide the Panthers to success. But they still should be better than Tampa Bay.

TAMPA BAY…. The Bucs decided that Gruden was not longer effective. Not buying that his replacement is going to do anything spectacular.


CHICAGO …………. The main problem with Chicago over the years has been an absence of a bonafide QB. Looks like they solved that problem with the addition of Cutler.

Green Bay ……………………… Only reason I’m putting the Pac in this position is that the QB situation in Minnesota is even worse than Chicago’s ever has been. The 2nd NFL Picks to 4th spot are toss ups in this division.

Minnesota………………….. What in the world are they doing at the QB spot? When their guess is as good as ours then you know it’s not a good NFL Picks situation. Only Detroit should keep them from the bottom.

DETROIT ……………………. The Lions retool again? Not much to talk about here.


Seattle …………… I’m going out on a limb putting the Seahawks in the top spot here. With HC Holmgren no longer a distraction they could be ready to talk the top NFL Picks spot in what is a weak division. Only the health of Hasselbeck could derail this pick.

ARIZONA…………. Not sure of the rest of the division puts the Cards at least in the second spot. Teams coming off a successful season as they had are not historically successful subsequently. But again, it’s a weak division.

San Francisco………………. Ok, so they 49ers have settled the coaching issue and they did show some NFL Picks success late in the season under Singletary. But, I’m just not sold he’s ready to coach in the big time.

ST. LOUIS ……… The Rams are hoping their new HC Spagnola can turn this franchise around. With not a lot of talent to work with, don’t expect too much NFL Picks success this year.

So, there you have it! If you’re wondering who will represent the NFC in the NFL Picks Super Bowl this season? Look for the Bears to be the team. The addition of Cutler will give them the offense punch they have needed to go along with their usual stellar defense.

You are right on the money with Chicago, New Orleans, and Seattle, but it is Philadelphia’s year in the East as McNabb stays healthy and the Eagles roll.

Trust me on this one.
