    Thx, Ron. I misread one of the earlier posts which confused me (been getting a lot of that lately:confused:).

    1. The division is just as tough as we thought. I doubt the Niners would be 3-3 without the horrible streak of injuries they have had. They lost 4 of their top 5 corners, their starting WRs, their #3 receiver, their All Pro TE, their All Pro DE, and lastly their QB. The Seahawks are 5-0. The Rams barely beat the Cowboys, lost to a Bills team thats a bit overrated, let the putrid Eagles hang around for awhile, and lost to a Niners team that still is missing key pieces.

    I feel like everyone's overestimating the Seahawks. I know they're 5-0, but they haven't faced a team that currently has a winning record, and only one of those games had a final score higher than 8 points. I know it's bad form to criticize wins based off strength of schedule, and that wins are wins, but they're not winning convincingly against some really mediocre teams. I feel like we've got a better shot to beat them this weekend than people think. The Rams got lucky enough to face the entire NFC East in the first 6 games. I'm not gonna entirely discount them for that, but their only wins were against teams in that garbage fire of a division.

    Because having watched them they are the most balanced team in the division.

    Well yeah. The Niners having loads of injuries makes them worse but they have looked down anyway. They got spanked by the Fins with a team more than good enough to win.

    The Seahawks are overrated. They only beat bad teams and most of them not convincingly.

    Kind of odd to say this after losing to a Niner team with half the team on IR & been having “looked down” anyway, but alright.

    Anyone can lose to anyone with the right game plan and a bit of luck. You're right they haven't been the best team so far, but they have the 5th ranked offense per DVOA and the 13th ranked defense per DVOA. Long way to go yet, I just think they are best positioned talent wise to win the division. But for what it's worth I don't think any of the other 3 teams in the division are quite as good as we feared pre seaon, except maybe the Rams as for some reason many had low expectations of them.

    We will see, it's just my opinion.

    Gotta see more. Just think their DVOA ratings are as high as they are is because they played the whole NFC East already, while no one else in the division has played more than two.

    Great move. Should have kept him here. One of too many players that left and blossomed elsewhere.

    Glad he's back. We can use the help looking at our injury report!

    He's only been gone a little over 1 season...and hardly blossomed in NY. Had a decent year, last year, but wasn't a fit in new defense this year and didn't play much.

    10 sacks in NY last season.

    Blossom light.
