I'll take the Bucs - 4-12 last year with all sorts of problems at QB - I think Garcia solves that problem in the short term.

I would look for them to be a little wiser with their franchise RB and not run him ito the ground with so many carries this year - possibly a more west coast short passing style to substitute for the running game.

If Gaines Adams plays to his potential they have a genuine pass rusher to replace Simeon Rice's production.

I think somewhere between 7-9 and 9-7 is attainable.

The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.

I was thinking the same thing. But it seems they are everyone NFC champion ever year. SI.com already picked them to win it.

I gotta go with the cards. Look at the comparison with last year's sleeper team the Saints. A team with a lot of talent that continued to underperform year after year. They get an effusion of new talent and new young coach who can take advantage of the excitement/enthusiasm that comes from that.

The cards have a lot of offensive weapons---James, Fitzgerald, Lienert (as much as I hate him). If Grimm can get their OLine to perform ---tahdah! Defense is another question, but lots of teams with good offenses still win despite lackluster play on the otherside. Mark my word I'm not suggesting a Saints-type meteoric rise, but in that division 8-8 or 9-7 and a playoff appearance is not impossible.

The Titans. They've had one year with Young at the helm and now with the confidence from last season mounting, they will be a force to reckon with.
