IDP w/BEE NFC SOUTH BOLD PREDICTIONS
Now I’m headed towards the NFC South in what should be a battle between the Falcons and Saints to win the division, don’t get mad Bucs fans y’all not there yet but keep taking that step forward. Carolina is still in rebuild mode but should improve record wise from last year. Either an offensive or defensive player will be mentioned in this section from each team and again, these are BOLD predictions so don’t get it twisted.
CAROLINA PANTHERS – Greg Olsen not only becomes a security blanket to Newton/Clausen but also becomes a top 5 TE as well.
TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS – Rookie LB Mason Foster is a ballhawk, racks up a total of 120 tackles and wins defensive rookie of the year.
ATLANTA FALCONS – Harry Douglas emerges as Ryans 2nd favorite target as Julio Jones is still learning. Douglas puts up numbers that showcases a 65rec 980yds 7tds!
NEW ORLEANS SAINTS – As good as Mark Ingram has been and the hype around him, Pierre Thomas will remain healthy for an entire season (IF Brian Westbrook can, Pierre can) and puts up solid RB2 numbers 230car 990yds 7tds 40rec 350yds 3tds.
As far as standings go, I see the Atlanta Falcons winning the NFC South again as they continue to get better and Matt Ryan takes another step forward in leading this team. Saints will battle hard for the wild-card spot once again and in my opinion the Bucs, although on the right direction, takes a back seat this year as they continue to build that defense and get WR’s healthy. Lastly, Carolina will be much better than their record last year but they’ll still be in line for a top 5 pick as they too continue to rebuild both offensively and defensively, be patient Panthers fans.
