1. Seahawks (12-4)
Seahawks will retake their throne at the head of this division. People forget that Russell Wilson in his last 8 games threw for 24 touchdowns and only one interception. He's the real deal and this year could be the year he cements his name into those elite QB discussions.The loss of Marshawn Lynch won't affect them all that much with the abundance of young backs they have brought in. The defense is as strong as ever, that combined with improved quarterback play all year from Russell Wilson, this Seahawk team could be the best one yet.
This savage squad will definitely give the Seahawks a run for their money, no question about it. They have an elite head coach in Bruce Arians who has turned this franchise around in the blink of an eye. The defense will be up there as one of the best if not the best in the entire league. My concern is that Carson Palmer is going to digress a lot more than people think. He's 36 years old you don't start getting any better at that age. I see this turning into a Jake Delhomme sort of situation, he came off a devastating playoff throwing a bunch of interceptions after having a career year in the regular season. Sound like anyone? Oh yeah just like Carson Palmer last year, well Jake Delhomme was just a mere shell of himself after that and faded into the background very quickly. Hopefully this isn't the same for Carson Palmer, although I think it will be.
The Rams are going to be awful this year. Whatever lies they're feeding you on 'Hard Knocks' about how they are going to do better than 8-8 this year, please don't listen to them. Case Kennum, that's their week 1 starting quarterback, if you think this undrafted journeyman is going to lead your team to a winning season, you're delusional. Todd Gurley, will run for kinds of crazy numbers, maybe even break the record, but it will all be for nothing because the Rams are just a notch below mediocre. Oh, and for all you fans boys preaching for Goff, don't. He needs as much time as possible to get himself mentally and physically prepared to be a NFL quarterback before he ever touches that field. If they throw him into the wild too early, it'll kill his confidence and he'll amount to nothing in this league.
4. 49ers (3-13)
They will be the laughing stock of the league this year. They have no quarterback, no receivers, they are weak and thin at running back, and they have a poor defense. Sounds like a disaster to me, on the bright side for 49er fans, you'll be getting Deshaun Watson, first overall next year.
