The NFC West has been a great division to watch over the past years. They went from being the worst division in football to the best in only a few years. This years dynamics are bound to change again. The St.Louis Rams have a new starting QB who can hopefully actually stay healthy. The Rams seem to be improving year by year and this year might be the year in which they can win the division for the first time in 12 years. In one year the 49ers managed to go from one of the best teams in the NFL to a rebuilding team. How will the 49ers deal with the mass exodus?

Many people think that the Cardinals were a healthy Carson Palmer away from winning the division and making a deep playoff run. If he can stay healthy this year, will they be able to make a deep run this year, or has the team changed to much?

Seattle was one play away of winning back to back Super Bowls. Can they make it back another year? Those are things I will try to predict. In this post I will analyze both key additions and losses of personnel for each team and then also give my prediction for each teams season.  Obviously things can drastically change in-season due to injuries to key players, but these are my predictions for the teams as they currently are. So here we go:
