Still happy Steven Jackson is gone and they might need to add a couple more pieces but with that pass rush and adding Cook and maybe Long to LT I think it'll be tougher for Seattle to beat them than San Fran. 49ers are heading for a Superbowl hangover and couldn't beat the Rams last season. Rams probably could have swept the division last season and I think they could be a tougher out than the 49ers right now.

I think they take a big step back personally.

No jackson. No amondola. No weapons. Plus their QB is still Sam Bradford.

If they get Long, they will be more of threat.

Between Fisher and that D, they'll be in a lot of games to the end.

Not sure if they're a worse threat than the Niners, but they'll be tough again this year.

Chris Long has taken a step back it seems, and as J said, their QB is still Sam Bradford.

Chris Long had 11.5 sacks last year, 13 the year before...not really that much of a step back

Chris Long got 3 or 4 out of those 11.5 , in Seattle that last game ?

Rams are a tough team last year and will be the same this year.

They have two first round picks this draft # 16 and 22.

Arizona went from being the best team in the NFL undisputed through 4 games to a laughingstock. Amazing fall from power and might.

I expect the same for the San Francisco 49ers this year, after Harbaugh fucked over Alex Smith the way he did. Its a clear downgrade to Kaepernick anyway. Karma is a bitch, especially when you go the reverse discrimination route.

You could say the same thing about Clemons. He had four in one half against GB.

I agree the Rams are a bigger threat than say Kansas City. But over the ninnirs?

Ha!

I don't see how they're going to fix their QB position anytime soon. Maybe you should trade them flynn

Hangover, huh? We'll see about that. As far as the Rams, the reason we didn't beat them last year was released last week. His name is David Akers.

Well it's only the start of the FA period, the Rams are not going to let Bradford try to win by himself, there is a lot out there that could still be brought in. The fact Fisher is the coach will make the defense tough on opponents, we were the only team that beat them last year in the division. Blame Akers all you want S.F. fans you had the balls to switch QB's why not kickers. You made your bed own the damn thing.

So what if he did? Chris Clemons got 4 of his 11 sacks in one game too - against GB.

This division is stacking up to be the best in the NFL. There's a new black n' blue division and it isn't the NFC North or East. Has there ever been a division that sent 3 three teams to the playoffs? This may be the year NFC West does that. Seattle, SF, and St. Louis all have good chances. I'm leaving AZ out because of a new coach and scheme for now. If they can get there QB and OL issues settled then they coudl be there too.

Why are you here? Go tell your own fans how excited you are. Or don't they like you either?

Rams will win 9 games and are a good team. That said they aren't in the same class as Seattle and San Fran. Admit it or not, but those are the two best teams right now on paper in the NFC. I'm sure the saints and bears will have something to say about it, but IMO your blind or blind by hate, if you believe StL is on the same level as the 9ers.

Yeah rhey are my dark horse team going into next year, they get Tillman back and have signed some nice FA. Besides in the NFC north if the packers lose Jennings who's going to challenge them? The lions with Schwartz as HC, or the Vikings with no Qb?

Yeah the falcons should be decent as well, but I think they take a step back this year to 10-6.

interesting that you decided to go with the Bears and Saints instead of, oh idk, Packers and Falcons? Although I suppose both the Bears and Saints have a shot at the playoffs

I once left the gondola guy in Venice because he wouldn't come down more in price. Once I was 20 steps away he yelled out - ok we got a deal.........

I don't see Long going anywhere but St Louis but as always there is a chance that I am wrong

And you're basing that on what exactly?

Their run game should improve with Steven Jackson replacing Michael Turner.

Gonzalez is returning for another year.

Exactly why do you think their record will drop from 13-3 to 10-6?

I'm curious.
