No way in hell New Orleans should be a top 5 team. With as much controversy and turmoil surrounding this team they'll be lucky to make the playoffs. The Falcons will likely win the NFCS but I see the Panthers improving a lot this year so long as Cam Newton takes a step forward and doesn't have a "sophomore slump."

HOF, tricky business on who is in, who is out, no guarantees there. WRs and 1,000 yard seasons, easier said than done and a boatload having played that position already waiting (for years)!

Mentioning current WRs for the HOF, way too early to go down that road, playing on a top team, hmm, same team better win the SB because WRs on a non-winning team aren't getting in the HOF.

I said before I think the NFC North will be strong, powerful but one WR change doesn't make a QB elite. NFC teams are on the rise though no doubt about it!

Ok, re-opened. I'll look at this and finish editing later. The title of this thread is "The balance of power has tilted to the NFC again."

I say New Orleans is a top 5 team, even with Bounty-Gate. There is such a premium in this league now on QB play, and Brees is one of the top 3 in the league, hands down. It's like the Colts with Payton Manning: he was easily good for 8 wins a year, by himself.

Top 10 QBs correlate to teams with winning records. In NFC, you have Rodgers, Brees, E. Manning, Stafford, then second tier Newton, Vick and Romo. AFC you have Brady, then P. Manning (if healthy) Big Ben, Rivers and Schaub as second tier. Ryan and Flacco are more game managers.

Bottom line is this year's playoff field in December, 6 vs 6, will aggregately favor the NFC.

Your assuming that the Saints are going to re-sign Brees long term. They said they were going to get a deal done with him months ago and yet it still hasn't happen.

Given the current state of the Saints, and Brees intrisnic value to the city of New Orleans, it would be public relations suicide not to retain him long term. He's a borderline first ballot hall of famer. That deal has to be completed, in order restore partial stability to the franchise.

The Saints are in for a down year, Brees has already missed a lot of time with his teammates, even if he does report. In the AFC, I would consider the Patriots, Texans, and Ravens as elite teams, with the Steelers just on the outside of that. The Ravens could be in for a rough year with Suggs out and Ray Lewis another year older.

Steelers not elite? Lets take a banged up playoff team. Make them healthy and fix their biggest problem, the offensive line. So you're going to tell me that a team that has won 2 superbowls (not too long ago) and has improved their biggest flaw isn't an elite team? You're crazy. We probably have the best group of receivers in the game(Mike Wallace,E.Sanders,A.Brown,J.Cotchery), one of the best TE's(Heath Miller), a top 5 QB and either the top or top 2 defense. Not elite but the Texans and Ravens are? Go check your facts, put your bias aside and get back to me.
