NFC West – 2010 NFL Season Preview

This division was pathetic last season, but we aren’t here to talk too much about 2009. The Cardinals won the division last year, and look to be the front runners for taking the title in 2010 as well. The 49ers will probably be able to provide the most competition of any other team in this division, but again, top to bottom this is the worst division in the NFL. Let’s continue looking deeper to find out if there is a silver lining anywhere in this great cloud of the NFC West.

AFC South – 2010 NFL Season Preview

The AFC South has long been dominated by the Indianapolis Colts, but the rest of the division is quickly making up ground. This division put up 38 wins in 2009, the most of any division by far, making the AFC South one of the NFL’s premier divisions. While the Colts may still be the cream of the crop down south, I wouldn’t be too surprised to see both wildcard’s come out of this division. However, with great strength, comes cannibalism as each team’s schedule gets markedly more difficult as each division opponent improves. Let’s find out what makes this division so powerful.

NFC South – 2010 NFL Season Preview

The NFC South is home to the Defending Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints, but don’t think that gives them any advantages heading into the 2010 season. This division is fairly solid top to bottom, meaning that there aren’t any “gimme’s” on anybody’s schedule. There are really only two contenders in this division, which isn’t nearly as potent as it was last season. This is still the Saint’s division to lose, however, but whether anyone will step up to take it from them remains to be seen.

NFC North – 2010 NFL Season Preview

Our journey through each of the NFL’s divisions lands us in the frozen regions of the NFC North where the Minnesota Vikings saw resurgence with Brett Favre under center and the Lions had yet another woeful season. This season kicks off with the usual hoopla surrounding Brett “I’m Unretired” Favre and some high hopes for the Packers led by one time Favre backup Aaron Rodgers. The competition in this division is about as cold as a Lambeau Field bleacher in December, and quite frankly, there isn’t a whole lot to get excited about from this division – but somebody has to win it and we will find out who.

Sips from the Haterade Cooler – Week of 6/14

New looks create a lot of buzz in the entertainment world. Cutting your hair, wearing something crazy, or bleaching your skin (like Sammy Sosa did) really equate to nothing more than attention getters. And since athletes and franchises are the “celebrities” of the sport’s world, you can bet that sports fans across the nation will turn their attention to any new looks that come down the pike.
