San Francisco 49ers Are New and Improved
With the hiring of head coach Mike Singletary a new attitude has come to the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers had a disappointing season in 08′ but improved towards the end of the season. While Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Joe Montana are long gone from the 49ers – the players the 49ers do have are RB Frank Gore, TE Vernon Davis, LB Patrick Willis, and QB Shaun Hill.Minnesota Vikings Carry High Hopes With Favre
The Minnesota Vikings expectations for the 09′ season went up dramatically with the potential of landing QB legend Brett Favre, which they did. It was a circus like atmosphere the entire off season with “Will he return? Won’t he return?” and so on.Minnesota Vikings Look Great With Brett Favre
The Minnesota Vikings are one of the favorites in the NFC to represent the conference in the Super Bowl. This is even more true now that Brett Favre is the Vikings quarterback.

The last few seasons for the Dallas Cowboys have caused the team and fans serious heartbreak. The 07′ 13-3 season ended with a disappointing loss to the New York Giants in the divisional playoffs, the 08′ season ended in a 9-7 season missing the playoffs. The last game of the regular season against the Philadelphia Eagles was an embarrassment, 44-6 loss.Atlanta Falcons Look to Build on 2008 Success
The last 3 years for the Atlanta Falcons have been a roller coaster ride like no other in the NFL. After having the most exciting player in the game, Michael Vick, for so many years, the Falcons are looking to move forward with QB sensation Matt Ryan. Matt Ryan had one of the best rookie QB seasons ever in 08′, completing 61% of his pass attempts, over 3,400 yards passing, 21 touchdown passes, only 12 interceptions, with a QB rating of almost 90 and starting all 16 games – many veteran QB’s will take that season any day.Can the New York Giants Win the Super Bowl in 2010?

The Tampa Buccaneers are one of the many teams in the NFL trying to start from the ground up and rebuild their franchise. After the Super Bowl win in 02′ the Buccaneers haven’t had much success.

The Carolina Panthers haven’t started out their 09′ season as well as they hoped for undoubtedly. Nothing has gone according to plan, Jake Delhomme isn’t productive, the wide receivers haven’t impressed much, the defense isn’t what it was before, the whole team is in the dumps. As strong as the NFC South is now with the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints, they better start making things happen before they are looking at a 6-10 season.Green Bay Packers Face Ups and Downs in NFL 2009 Season
The Green Bay Packers had a very disappointing season in 08′ with a 6-10 record. In 07′ the Packers finished 13-3 and were a couple minutes away from playing in the Super Bowl. Packers fans want to believe that Aaron Rogers will take their team to the Super Bowl shortly. Brett Favre is an icon in Green Bay despite how his departure ended there.Can the Washington Redskins Pull it Together?
The Washington Redskins haven’t started out their 09′ exactly how they anticipated. In fact, they are probably the most under achieving team in the NFL so far – they lost to the Detroit Lions in week 3. Either the Detroit Lions were finally do for a win and it just happened to be against the Redskins – or the loss against the Lions showed the lack of focus and determination the Redskins have.Arizona Cardinals Must Pass More Tests
The Arizona Cardinals are not starting off the 09′ season as they ended the 08′ season. QB Kurt Warner doesn’t seem to be the same man who lead the Cardinals to one of the greatest playoffs pushes in recent memory. While the wide receivers for the Cardinals are still being productive – they are not close to where they were in 08′.
