Sandy5prings Posted August 23, 2015 Share Posted August 23, 2015 (edited) Carolina was clearly the favorite to do a three-peat coming out of the draft. Then they lost two key starters. This makes the NFC South a 3 way race IMHO. Here's why:The Aints offense actually looks good despite them losing Graham. Stills Cooks looks like Antonio Brown. Their D looks vulnerable but their O will keep them competitiveThe Panthers are the opposite. Their D should keep them in games and their O will have to scrape some winsWe are going to have more of a balance between O and D but our ZBS run game looks like it will take a few games at least to solidify. The Bucs will once again face the prospect of going 0-fer in the divisionAFC South and NFC East are a favorable match up for NFC South. The division should go .500+ overall. Think about it - Jags, Titans, Redskins should be pummeled. On our side, only Bucs will be a favorable match up.Based on this, we should see possibly 3 NFCS teams over .500 and be down to the wire for playoff spots and the Division crown. This also means that our likely win loss range is going to be between 6-10 and 10-6, based on how we do against the Colts, Texans, Eagles, Cowboys and Vikes. In my view, we should win 3 of 6 within the division easily. In other games, we should win against the Jags, Titans, Redskins, Giants, Vikes and 49ers. Given this, I'd say that anything less than 9-7 would be a disappointment for me. The good news is that we have a strong chance to get to that mark or better.Thoughts?
