Wednesday Morning QB (NFL Week 17)

The NFL regular season has officially finished as yet another crazy season has been put in the books. The season came and went fast even as it almost seemed to be over before it started when the NFL and NFLPA almost cancelled the season with a labour dispute. The Season was an interesting one and in many cases came right down to the wire as teams fought for their spot in the postseason.

Lombardi Trophy up for Grabs

The Lombardi Trophy made it back to where it began in 2010 as the Green Bay Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV. This year the Packers will be looking to travel to Indianapolis as Lucas Oil Stadium will host Super Bowl XLVI in February 2012. There will be many team competing for their shot and going into the annals of the NFL as the champions of the 2011 season. The parity in the NFL is among the best in all of sports as the last repeat champion was the New England Patriots in 2004 and 2005. The Packers are hoping to become the next back to back champions but there are many teams looking to dethrone the champions.

Can the “Dream Team” Match the Hype (NFC East Preview)

The NFC East is has been one of the best divisions in the NFL as they have teams that could win any year. They also have four of the most legendary teams in the NFL as every team has a history that some teams would love. The Dallas Cowboys were one of the first teams to be in almost every home in the U.S. This gave them the moniker of “America’s Team” and has made them the richest team and the most recognizable team in the NFL. The New York Giants are also in this category as they were one of the original NFL teams and have been a staple in the New York sports scene for as long as the NFL has existed.

Battle at the Top in the South (NFC South Preview)

The NFC South could be one of the toughest divisions this year as every team has a chance at winning, although some might need more stars to align than others. The Atlanta Falcons are coming off of their best season and hope to improve one more step from last year. This year they have been pegged by many as a Super Bowl favorite and hope to make this a reality. The 2009 champions will have something to say about that as the New Orleans Saints look to get over the Super Bowl Hangover and make it back this year. Again the Saints have also been pegged by many as a Super Bowl favorite this year. These two teams will be the ones to watch in the NFC South as they will be the two top teams but the other teams in the division may give them a little trouble.

Who will win the Wild West? (NFC West Preview)

The NFC West has been the division of the basement dwellers for the last while as last year the winning team had a losing record. It was not always this way as both the St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers have both been some of the best teams in the NFL. The 49ers were the team of the late 80s and 90s when they had a coach who brought the West Coast offence into the limelight named Bill Walsh. With Walsh at the helm and Joe Montana and Steve Young under centre the 49ers won five Super Bowls. Lately San Francisco has been less than impressive as they have not been able to gain traction. The St. Louis Rams had a briefer strong period as they were known as the Greatest Show on Turf during the end of the 1990s when they won their first Super Bowl in 1999.

Can the Packers Repeat? (NFC North Preview)

The NFC North is fast becoming one of the most competitive divisions in the NFL with the defending champions squeaking into the playoffs last year. The Packers ended last season with a 10-6 record and 6th in the NFC. The Packers had a rough time in the North as they were second in the division to the Bears and lost both games to the Detroit Lions. With all of that controversy the Packers still managed to make it into the wild card and win the Super Bowl.
