The bad start of so many playoff teams is crazy:

• Wide-open, unpredictable NFC: Here's how muddled and unpredictable the NFC has been this season. Heading into Thursday night's Rams-49ers game in St. Louis, five NFC playoff teams from last season -- San Francisco (1-2), Green Bay (1-2), Atlanta (1-2), Washington (0-3) and Minnesota (0-3) -- had combined to win as many games this season as the Seattle Seahawks (three).

It is the surest sign to date that this season's NFC playoff field is wide open and is going to look considerably different from last year's. Make room for the Cowboys, Bears, Lions, Saints and others. They want to prove it's out with the old and in with the new.

But maybe the most striking stat showing how unpredictable these seasons can be is this: Previous Super Bowl-winning head coaches Mike Shanahan, Tom Coughlin and Mike Tomlin are a combined 0-9 this season, the first season in history in which three head coaches who were past Super Bowl winners have lost their first three games, per the Elias Sports Bureau.

I was curious if any of the TB fans in Rc would comment on getting Carson in that proposed trade - they've been silent for the past week.
