Matt Ufford and the Uffsides crew for SB Nation put together their 2014 NFC preview and it isn't surprising who the favorites are.
They have the Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and the New Orleans Saints as the two favorites to come out of the NFC to make it to the Super Bowl. After that, they consider the San Francisco 49ers.
However, for Arizona Cardinals fans, you will feel a bit of disrespect because Arizona doesn't even get mention as a dark horse team. They are the first team to get cursory mention among "the ones that suck."
Ufford praises them for their season in 2013, but says "the bad news for them is they got a lot worse." The prediction is 7-9.
The division pick and dark horses are:
NFC West: Seahawks
NFC East: Eagles
NFC North: Packers
NFC South: Saints
Is it a case of lack of respect, or did the Cardinals really get worse overall with the offseason?
