NFC West Roundup: Alarm Clocks, Bad Team Comparisons And A Lack Of QB Controversy

Should Doug Baldwin be packaged in a deal for the Seahawks to get Carson Palmer?
Should Doug Baldwin be packaged in a deal for the Seahawks to get Carson Palmer?

So the Cardinals and Seahawks are on their bye week, but the other two NFC West teams will have games tomorrow. The most intriguing game of the weekend might actually involve one of them (I can't remember the last time I said that). The 49ers head up to Detroit to take on the Lions tomorrow in what will surely be a great one. 

Before then, let's take a look around the division in this week's NFC West Roundup. 

San Francisco 49ers:


With Harbaugh, 49ers conquer alarm clocks - NFC West Blog - ESPN

The 49ers are off to a pretty good start when they are on the road against east coast teams.

San Francisco is looking for a little bit more production from their former first round pick.


49ers Blog and Q&A: Ndamukong Suh: I play everywhere

How will the 49ers' offensive line match up with Ndamukong Suh?


49ers careful not to rile Lions' Calvin Johnson - Sacramento Sports - Kings, 49ers, Raiders, High School Sports | Sacramento Bee

Handling Suh while you are on offense is one thing, but defending Calvin Johnson? That's an entirely different beast.


If You Weren't Completely Sold On Joshua Morgan As A 49er... - Niners Nation

Josh Morgan is out for the season, but even though he is about to hit free agency, he hopes to return to the Bay Area next year. 



St. Louis Rams:


Rams' Jackson says he's back to '100 percent'

Steven Jackson is back on the field, but unfortunately his first test coming back will be against a very good Packers defense. DMarco Farr - Rams' Offensive Line Has Much to Prove

Why does it seem like there are so many offensive lines in shambles around the league? I am not sure, but the Rams have one. If they don't fix it soon, their prized young quarterback could take the fall for it.

Denver Broncos receiver Brandon Lloyd is the subject of trade rumors. Will the St. Louis Rams be in the mix for his services?

Kiper: Current Rams a bit like 2010 Lions - NFC West Blog - ESPN

Drawing some comparisons between this year's Rams and the 2010 Lions. Needless to say, it's a great thing to hear for Cardinals fans.



Seattle Seahawks:


Curry traded to Raiders:

One of the only reasons Curry was traded is because of the play of rookie K.J. Wright


Aaron Curry: Why would you do that? - Seahawks News -

Now that Aaron Curry has been traded to the Raiders, Seahawks bloggers and radio hosts are giving their views about what they saw during his time in Seattle. 


10/13: Would you trade Baldwin, picks for Palmer? - Blog -

A good video about whether the Seahawks should trade their young promising receiver Doug Baldwin and some picks for the Bengals' disgruntled (and currently retired) QB, Carson Palmer


No QB controversy here:

If Tarvaris Jackson is healthy, he is the starter for the Seahawks. This doesn't make a ton of sense to me given what we have seen from Charlie Whitehurst, but who am I to judge?
