Minnesota Vikings: It seemed to me that in 2017 head coach Mike Zimmer did not fully have Case Keenums back at times. Judging by his off season moves, that may have been the case as all of his three QB’s are gone and he has brought in QB Kirk Cousins. Personally, I feel this is an upgrade, but Cousins has not yet done in his career. Keenum was 13-3 last year in the NFL, which is no small feat. Keenum was money for his team and for us bettors. Only time will tell if Zimmer’s gamble will pay off. Zimmer is known for his defensive prowess and it showed in what the Vikes were able to do in 2017. The Vikings were first in yards allowed, second in passing yards allowed, second in rushing yards allowed and first in points allowed per game.  That is a very impressive showing and along with a steady and a little above average offense, the Vikings went a long way. Even with the questions I have regarding the change at QB, I believe the Vikings still remain the team to beat in the NFC North.

Green Bay Packers:  Obviously with Aaron Rodgers back from a season lost to injury in 2017, this team will be a contender, no matter who they face.  The guy is just that good. There are other excellent QB’s in the league, but Aaron in my opinion is the best. The however to that is that he does not have the best coach or supporting players that he needs to go all the way. Keeping in mind that the Packers depend so much on Rodgers and if or when he gets injured they will need a back up to step in.  With Hundley and Kiser backing up this year, they do have a bit of insurance. I wouldn’t bet my house on either, but they can function.  As I said, 2017 was a lost season and I take nothing from the results we saw from that season. Both the offensive and defensive stats were tainted due to injuries and sometime lack of desire. Given a much healthier 2018 this will be a solid if not a great team this year. As I said Rodgers is that much better than most and if he gets the support he needs this team will contend for a Super Bowl.

This is a power packed division and I would not be shocked if the one of these teams ends up in the Super Bowl and maybe winning it. For me, the best of the lot are the Saints and Falcons, followed not too closely by the Panthers and the Bucs.

Let’s look at the QB’s that these teams should start the season with.

We start off with the new 150 million dollar man. Yes, the Falcons rewarded Matt Ryan with a new 5-year, 30 million dollar per year contract. Ryan has proven over many years to a very valuable asset for this team and the marketplace allows for big numbers for quality QB’s.

The Saints follow right there, side by side with a quality at QB, in Drew Brees. Drew has proven, again over many years to be a championship quality leader.

The Panthers and the Bucs, follow with Cam Newton and Jameis Winston. Personally, I don’t have the same degree of confidence in either of these leaders as I do in Ryan and Brees.

How I see this Division playing out. Saints, Falcons, Panthers and Bucs (I may flip the Panthers and Bucs)
