2017 Finish – 1st 10-6 #4 Seed Lost in Wild Card Round

Team Owner: mr_2Teamz

OVERALL RATING: 82

The Cardinals will bring their ball hawk style defense into 2018 with the offense to match. Mr2Teamz plays user MLB well, and he mixes coverage nicely with Arizona’s defensive speed. On offense, chances are taken. Risk/reward seems to be the Cardinals game.

Opposing Coach Comment

The Cardinals are a very tough team. With talent on both sides of the ball, you better stay disciplined or be ready to give up a huge play. They have the ability to stay a playoff threat each and every year.

Prediction – 1st, NFC #4 Seed, Loss in Wild Card Round

2017 Finish – 2nd 8-8

Team Owner: TheShamelessProphet

OVERALL RATING: 86

It’s a good thing the Seahawks Quarterback can move. That line is an issue, and was addressed in the offseason, but is it enough for TheShamelessProphet to take his team to the playoffs? The talent is there on both sides of the ball, and the window maybe closing.

They came on strong late.  I think the Seahawks are in a position to contend in the west and be a real problem in the NFC

Prediction – 2nd, Misses Playoffs

helmets 3_clipped_rev_1San Fransisco 49ers

2017 Finish – 3rd 5-11

Team Owner: stryper

OVERALL RATING: 76

Cleveland Browns West, but without all the picks. However, stryper did have a nice draft and is building a solid Franchise in Santa Clara. The 49ers may play ultra-conservatively in the beginning of the season, but they should pick up the pressure and pace as the season wears on. Look for them to compete for the division in 2019 and beyond.

Opposing Coach Comment

They’re rebuilding. I do like their roster. And they have some very good young defenders.

Prediction – 4th, Misses Playoffs

helmets 3_clipped_rev_1Los Angeles Rams

2017 Finish – 4th 5-11

Team Owner: Wafflevandam

OVERALL RATING: 79

The Rams roster has some talent,and a monster back to help a transition. Wafflevandam? Don’t know what direction he’s going in, or the style of play Los Angeles will run, but that could be to his advantage. Maybe the Rams will shock the world…of the Sim Association.

The Rams have Speed at the Skill positions on Offense, and defensive ends that will present matchup difficulties
