2012 NFC Division and Wild Card Winner Predictions

Posted: September 3, 2012 by Rob Barros in NFL, Sports

NFC East

Rob – New York Giants – Call it biased, but I see the Giants winning the NFC East again in 2012, and it won’t be easy. It could very well come down to the last game of the season with the Giants and Eagles facing off for the division crown at Metlife Stadium.

Shawn – Philadelphia Eagles – The Eagles will win the division only if they can somehow keep Michael Vick healthy, they have too may weapons on offense and defensively have seemed to figure things out. There is no excuse why they shouldn’t make the playoffs.

Jonny – New York Giants – The Giants should be able to repeat as division champions in what should be a good divisional race.

NFC West

Rob – San Francisco 49ers – This one is simple. The 49ers only got better during the off-season by adding plenty of weapons for Alex Smith to thrive in the offense. Not to mention that defense is out of this world. 49ers will take the West easily once again.

Shawn – San Francisco 49ers – San Francisco has the best defense in the league hands down. Alex Smith will have his first full offseason under Jim Harbaugh along with key additions on the offensive end (Moss, Jacobs and Manningham) the 49ers should be right back at the top of the NFC playoff chart again.

Jonny – San Francisco 49ers – The 49ers should have no problem winning the West this season with the additions of Randy Moss and Mario Manningham.

NFC North

Rob – Green Bay Packers – Even with the Bears looking like a pure contender, I still see Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense being too dominant for anyone to overthrow them as the top team in the North. It would be very hard for their defense to get any worse this season.

Shawn – Green Bay Packers – Green Bay addressed their defense in the draft with every pick being on the defensive side of the ball. Don’t expect another 15-1 year but they have more than enough to win their division.

Jonny – Green Bay Packers – Aaron Rodgers and the Packers will be looking for a little revenge after losing the way they did in the playoffs last season. Expect big things from Green Bay in 2012.

NFC South

Rob – Atlanta Falcons – Atlanta is always in the running for the division and with the Saints having a ton of turmoil over the off-season, I see the Falcons being able to take advantage and win the South over the Saints.

Shawn – New Orleans Saints – Even with all the “bounty-gate” issues still surrounding the Saints, they should still win the South because of their offense aka Drew Brees. Also Atlanta has yet to prove that they can win a big game.

Jonny – New Orleans Saints – Drew Brees will want to show the league that they are past the bounty scandal, and will try to once again have a huge year offensively.

Wild Card Picks

Rob -Philadelphia Eagles – Like I said in my East prediction, the NFC East could be decided by the final game. I do see the Eagles making the playoffs, and being a serious contender to even win the NFC.

Rob – Chicago Bears – Getting Brandon Marshall back with Jay Cutler, and having a happy Matt Forte in the backfield with Michael Bush will give the Bears offense a whole new identity in 2012.

Shawn – Chicago Bears – Brandon Marshall and Jay Cutler are reunited in the windy city. If Brian Urlacher can make an impact “da” Bears will have enough to make it into one of the wild card stops in the NFC.

Shawn – New York Giants – The Giants are going to have a little bit of a Superbowl hangover, in my mind but will still make some noise in the postseason. With that pass rush, and Eli Manning you can never count them out.

Jonny – Chicago Bears – The Bears defense will depend on Brian Urlacher’s play, but the offense might be able to carry this Bears team in 2012 with Jay Cutler getting his old friend Brandon Marshall back.

Jonny – Atlanta Falcons – Atlanta will look to show that they are better then the team that scored only 2 points in the playoffs last year. They will win a wild card spot.
