Football Week (2): NFC West Preview

It’s football week (part deux) here on planet Shot To Nothing and so we’re going to be previewing a different NFL division every day. And also comparing each team to a popstar… ’cause that’s the kinda shit we’re into. Bitch.

NFC West
Full of teams that are never as competitive as you think they're going to be. In their predicted order:

The St. Louis Rams - P. Diddy
Glamourous and surrounded by talent, the Rams are a team to be admired this season. Drew Bennet, Randy McMichael and Dante Hall were all gret additions to an already solid team and I think this is the year the Rams get back on top of their division.

The San Francisco 49ers - Jay Z
It's tough to decide whether you like the 49ers this season or whether you think they're gonna blow. I lean towards liking them thanks to a solid draft and the aquiring of Nate Clements to improve the secondary. It might have been costly, but this is a team on the up and this may be the season they really show it.

The Arizona Cardinals - Girls Aloud
Young, talented and pretty, the Cardinals have been a failed dark horse for many moons now. But this really could be the season we start to see those improvements coming though. I like Leinart passing to Boldin and Fitzgerald or handing off to James, it looks great on paper and it could bring a heck of a shock to a lot of teams this year. And I could see them making the playoffs. No, seriously.

The Seattle Seahawks - Kelly Clarkson
Boy, those pundits sure love the Seattle Seahawks don't they? Is it becauseof their ridiculous home field advantage or the fact that their division has been so soft of late? I don't know, what I do know though is that the Seahawks are in decline. Shaun Alexander is not going to have another great year this year (or ever again...) and Matt Hasslebeck is all smoke and mirrors. His receiving unit are not as good as they were two years ago and, although the team are remarkably well coached, I think this is going to be a terrible season for them. I know that's a fairly bold prediciton, as is placing them last in the division, but it's my gut feeling and I'm sticking with it.
