As I indicated in my preseason picks, it is starting to look to me like the NFC West is definitely overrated. I picked San Fran to miss the playoffs and after last night, that looks quite possible. (Their win in Dallas was nothing – any team would have won that game considering how crappy Romo played and Garrett’s playcalls.) As I said last week after the Packers/Seahawks game, I suspected that Seattle’s greatness had less to do with the victory than the Packers’ crappy play. And I think I was right. Seattle got handled by the Chargers yesterday (and one of their TDs shouldn’t have even counted – should have been 30-14 (or 30-17 with a FD). Even though the Chargers are a good team, one that I picked to win the AFC West, Seattle isn’t THAT good.
This is shaping up to be one odd season – especially in the NFC. Teams like the Packers and Saints look iffy while other teams like the Cardinals and Bills look decent. I’m guessing both the Packers and Saints right the ship and the Cards and Bill eventually falter – but who knows?
