Here's a fun game: Pre-draft over/under for the NFC. Here's what I think:

East

Cowboys - 9.5  Over

Eagles - 9.5  Under

Giants - 6  Push

Redskins - 5  Under

 

North

Packers - 9  Over

Vikings - 8.5 Over

Bears - 8 Push

Lions - 6.5  Under

 

South

Saints - 10  Over

Bucs - 9  Over

Falcons - 7.5  Under

Panthers - 5.5  Over

 

West

49ers - 10.5  Over

Seahawks - 9 Over

Rams - 8.5  Under

Cardinals - 7.5  Under

With all the turnover that the rams have had,  I really don't see them winning more than 5-6 games.

If I had to do a snap-reaction projected standings for the West, it'd look something like this right now:

1. 49ers 11-5

2. Seahawks 10-6

3. Rams 7-9

4. Cardinals 7-9

I visit PFT every day and haven't seen it mentioned 

As for my guess on the NFC playoffs, i'd say 

NFCE - Cowboys

NFCN - Vikings

NFCS - Saints

NFCW - 49ers

WC - Rams, Bucs, Eagles

Just missed: Seahawks, Cards

I heard for Rasul Douglas? I was hoping we'd keep him and that the year in the doghouse would help but maybe Kyle is over it.

i don't know about seven wins for them.  No brockers, Folwer, TG30, Clay, Weddle, Littleton and they cut Roby-Coleman and they don't have much draft capital

I would much rather have Pettis and his potential than Douglas and his potential. Really hoping Pettis put in the work this off-season and comes in ready to compete

I'd flip the Rams / Seahawks, but I have us tentatively set at 11-5 as well.

Yeah, this stems from an original report that Douglas was on the block...then another website ran a "three trade ideas for Douglas", which included a swap for Pettis....which has now apparently morphed into Florio saying talks have heated up lol

You really think the Rams are a 10 win team?

I Think that their problems are blown way out of proportion, and as a whole, I like the team more than I Like the seahawks team. Though one has Wilson and the other doesn't.

I'm really not sure to be honest. Correct me if I'm wrong, they were once again in the top 5 in terms of health last season? Their OL has not improved yet unless they find some studs in the draft, they will have similar problems. The Rams can go either way for me. A lot comes down to Goff and the OL. Wouldn't bet money on making a Rams prediction next season.

Oh I definitely wouldn't bet one way or the other. But if I had to pick one of those teams to finish 10-6 and the other to finish 7-9? I'd probably take Rams for the wins. Yes, they are pretty healthy, but the Seahawks had an unsustainable record in close games that will almost surely regress. And it's not like it's just Wilson. They won three games because teams basically missed field goals, and that doesn't have anything to do with Wilson.

Seattle is obviously flawed as well but getting Dunbar was pretty damn big. Let's see what they do with Clowney and/or Griffen, but their offense should be really good again. They got lucky in some games for sure, but Wilson is also going to pull close ones out more times than none. He just has the "it" factor in clutch situations and that's not going to change. On paper, I thought the Rams were more talented than the Seahawks last year but they definitely have some holes to fill. Have no edge rusher whatsoever and just lost Littleton who was good in coverage. And again, until they improve their OL, hard to trust them. Their sustained good health the last three years has been great, but they will eventually be due to having a down year in that regard. The NFC West should still be ours next year. Have a lot of continuity returning which is huge with a shortened offseason and just flat out more talent/depth than any other team.

Your last sentence is the reason the Seahawks will be above the Rams. 
 

I’m not sure what makes you think the Rams are good, but I just don’t see it. They’re not a playoff team right now.
