Christmas Wish List: NFC South

The NFC South has been a division dominated in recent years by the New Orleans Saints, largely due to the effervescent play of recording-breaking quarterback Drew Brees. But just how much longer will Brees be able to sustain his level of play and consequently the Saints’ stranglehold on the division? Should New Orleans be asking for an heir to throne this Christmas? And are there any potential gifts that the other teams could receive that would help catapult them into the top spot in the NFC South? NFC South - Carolina Panthers It was in fact the Panthers who won the...

Christmas Wish Lists: NFC North

It’s been a two-horse race for the division title this season in the NFC North. Typically a tight, competitive division, this year two teams in the Green Bay Packers and the Minnesota Vikings have dominated while the Detroit Lions and the Chicago Bears have underwhelmed. The Bears have an elite defense but have been held back by restrictive quarterback play. While the Lions have a top-tier quarterback, but the overall play of the team has been lacking. And with Matt Stafford now on IR, performances have dropped off even further recently. The Green Bay Packers look as good as ever with...

Christmas Wish List: NFC West

The NFC West is one of the more promising divisions in football right now. There are currently three teams with a winning record in the Seattle Seahawks, San Francisco 49ers and LA Rams. And one in the Arizona Cardinals who show potential under first-year head coach Kliff Kingsbury and rookie quarterback Kyler Murray. With all four teams with their quarterbacks in place, the NFC West is set up to be a competitive division for some time. Will any of their gifts this Christmas help to create separation between the teams? NFC West: Arizona Cardinals  Kyler Murray looks like a stud already...

Christmas Wish Lists: NFC East

Today, we move onto the NFC and we’ll be starting with the worst (or maybe even the best depending on what way you look at it) division in the NFL this season…the NFC East. Two teams are likely to be picking in the top-5 in April’s draft in the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins. They've both been working in rookie quarterbacks this season, and both could do with a massive helping hand from Santa this Christmas. The other two teams, the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys, are battling it out to win the division. Both teams have their issues,...

Christmas Wish Lists: AFC South

The AFC South has been a strange division in 2019. It's been a season of change in one way or another for each of the teams. Andrew Luck retired just before the start of the season and Jacoby Brissett is installed as the Indianapolis Colts’ new starting QB. Blake Bortles was out in Jacksonville and the Jags brought in Nick Foles to be their new starting QB. He got injured and was replaced by fifth-round pick Gardner Minshew, who instantly became a cult hero in Jacksonville. The Tennessee Titans made a mid-season QB change. Marcus Mariota wasn’t up to par, so he...

Christmas Wish Lists: AFC North

A division of highs and lows, the AFC North contains arguably the best and worst teams in the NFL in the Baltimore Ravens and the Cincinnati Bengals. One's definitely on Santa's good list while the other...let's just they'd be getting coal in their stocking if it were up to me. Then add in the Cleveland Browns and the Pittsburgh Steelers, the two teams responsible for one of the ugliest scenes we've seen for a long time in the NFL. They could well both be on the naughty list, too. Will Santa be bringing them the gifts they're asking for this Christmas?  AFC...

Christmas Wish Lists: AFC West

The NFL's AFC West is a division containing a Super Bowl contender, a perennial underachiever and two teams undergoing somewhat of a rebuild. What can will first year head coach Vic Fangio be asking for in his first Christmas at Denver? Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders added a lot of pieces in the off-season but what will they be asking for this Christmas? The LA Chargers have been disappointing this year, is there a Christmas gift out there that can lift the mood in LA? And the Kansas City Chiefs, it feels like they're on the brink of doing...

Christmas Wish Lists: AFC East

It’s that time of year again, folks. The weather’s getting colder, the days are getting shorter, and people are feeling festive…Christmas is coming for everyone, including teams in the AFC East.   First of all, the NFL regular season is coming to a close. The dream will be over for another year for 20 teams and it will officially be time to look ahead to the 2020 season. But most importantly it means GIFTS! Whether we’re giving them or receiving them, everyone loves gifts. I’ve already made my list of what I’ll be asking Santa for this Christmas and today I’ll...
