2011 NFC's  Weakest Links Photo



This poll is about a team in each division that'll get less than 5-6 wins this year in the NFC side of the NFL.  Not every team is going to make the playoffs and of course win the division this year.  Your thoughts and opinions are appreciated.

I can foresee the Lions doing better than the Vikings, but the NFL always has unpredictable results.

Cam Newton is in trouble.  No one in the public eye is going to point it out, but Carolina is looking at a long year, but I'm looking forward to the small moral victories that Newton and Claussen will garner. I'll never say never as far as Cam being an elite, but it's going to be a terrible 2011.

Arizona pulled its head from the water for a couple of years last decade, thanks to Kurt Warner, Anquan Boldin, and Larry Fitzgerald. While Fitz was the biggest star of the three, he's left treading water with the team tied to his ankles.

Shanahan loves his running game, and wants a quarterback who will just go nuts. McNabb, at one point in his career, was capable of doing that, but he's now on the home stretch of his career, and DC can't seem to get their stuff together.

Leslie Frazier- A great defensive coach, but he's in serious danger of falling, at best, into a Marvin Lewis type situation. The difference between his and Lewis's situation, however, is Minnesota isn't as patient as Cincy.

That's what I was thinking.  Since Brett Favre retired this past season.  The Vikings don't have a QB.  Da Vikings need 2 draft a QB if they didn't do so this year.  Detroit on the other hand have some good defense that is on the rise.  But the Bears n da defending packers are standing in the lions' way...  The question for the Lions is can Matt Stafford stay injury-free to be that "go-to" QB that'll help the lions offensively?

You can't blame Cam Newton.  In fact, u can never blame a rookie per se for the franchises' misfortunes in the last couple of years.  It's going to take time 4 da panthers to put the pieces together in order 2 b a winning team.  They'll have 2 wait 4 teams like the Saints and the Falcons to fall off because those are the NFC south teams that the NFL is screaming right now 2 b the hottest teams in the NFC.  Da Saints and Falcons are not done bein on top of the NFC south yet...

The NFC West is the weakest division in the NFC.  The Cardinals have issues with the starting QB as well as their defense.  I love Larry Fitzgerald but at some point, he's going to need 2 demand 2 go somewhere else if he wants to be on a winning team...  I don't see him winning alot of games with the cardinals. 

As for da Burgandy n Gold, Da skins have special team and defense issues.  When u have those kind of problems, it's hard 2 win alot of games especially with a competitive division that they're in -- NFC East.  McNabb can only do but so much and you know he's not getting any younger.  You know Dallas Cowboy fans will get a kick out of the fact that the skins are the weakest link of the NFC division.  The Giants and the Eagles will stay in the skins' way and Dallas MAY b the team that's re-inventing themselves and on the rise.  Don't sleep on da Cowboys...

The Vikings have some QB issues to deal with.  But yeah coach Frazier is going to be very overwhelmed with the lack of offensive production and possibly stopping the opposition defensively.

Vikings took a reach by taking Christian Ponder out of Florida State with the 12th overall pick. Many speculate that he or another worthy QB would've been available to them in the 2nd round. Based on that reason, I see them falling down hard for a few years, while they struggle to piece the team back together.

I agree...  Adrian Peterson is one hell of a halfback and Sidney Rice is a decent WR so they are really caught up in this madness.  It'll take the bears and the packers 2 step aside if the Vikings happened to be the NFC North leader.  Who knows, Christian Ponder could b a decent QB so I'm not goin into judgement with him even though the Vikings will struggle this year.  Expect the Vikings defense to be horrible this year as well...

No way am I blaming Newton. I'm blaming the organization for dropping Newton into this horrible situation. Only time will tell if Newton's talents are wasted in Carolina.

 That's the way it is in sports per se.  The team with the worst record have 2 go to the drawing board and draft some college talents that can possibly do a better job than the players that will no longer be on the team.  That's a good way of making adjustment so that franchise can generate more cashflow 4 da future.  Keeping the same players n coaching staff that has been horrible 4 years is like 2 dead batteries in a remote control 2 your TV...

 Can we re-do these results after all these trades and free agent signings that are getting ready to take place. A few teams were one short of what could turn them decent. Granted it might not account for much, but the year just might be better for the Vikings now with McNabb, I said MIGHT. 

Yes BDV we all know the weakest division is the NFC west, however if memory serves me correctly a team from the NFC West did make the super bowl very recently and went to the wire
