I know this isn't my turf, but I have a point here.
They aren't going to be as good as in the past. The have two running backs that haven't been full time starters for a couple of seasons, and TJ Duckett isn't that good. Their WR aren't studs (besides Deion Branch) and they are aging. Who knows if Bobby Engram is going to perform to his top level. Defense is still great, but they aren't perfect. The competition is getting turned up. Arizona has the talent in Edge and Leinart and the WR. Issac Bruce to the 49ers. But the Rams suck. That is 4 out of 6 of their confrence games that they play whom upped the ante. Shaun Alexander was a great RB, but injury rittled, but he was still good. They will still probably win the division, since it is terrible, but they won't be as good as their recent past.
Also, the cities sports history. Speaking of it, I just saw the Richie Sexson fight. Anyway, they don't play in a good city, they have amazing 12th man, but it is the city curse. Never a championship.
I ain't saying they won't make the playoffs, but they aren't as good as in 2005, when Shaun Alexander broke the record.
