BIG PLANS & SMALL DREAMS
The NFC West appears to be a two team race again between Los Angeles and Seattle. The Rams are officially the hunted after back to back division titles and a trip to the Super Bowl, while Seattle has gotten back in contention after a losing season in 2017. As for the Cardinals and 49ers, a close eye will be kept on their starting Quarterbacks who are expected to turn the franchise around.
LOS ANGELES RAMS
For the majority of NFL teams, there is usually some type of gradual climb to the top of the ladder but for the Rams, it only took two years under Head Coach Sean McVay to make it to the Super Bowl, which is now the new standard in L.A.
Seattle has fully moved on past the Legion of Boom era and is set to put their Championship hopes squarely on the shoulders of Quarterback Russell Wilson and Linebacker Bobby Wagner who have the talent and experience to get the job done.
SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS
Uncertainty is the best word to describe what's going on in San Francisco, with enough question marks to go around, including high priced Quarterback Jimmy Garrapollo who is returning from an ACL injury. He was brought in to lead the 49ers back to the their glory days and at the moment it seems more of a far fetched than a possible reality.
Last season in Arizona was so bad that the organization decided to move on from their Head Coach and First Round draft pick Quarterback after one year. That highly questionable and unheard of move puts a tremendous amount of pressure on new and unproven Head Coach Kliff Kingsbury to right the ship immediately.
