I’d like to start this blog by rescinding a statement. I said earlier that Cam Newton would not be ready to play in the NFL at a high level. Well, I was wrong. While the Panthers aren’t setting the world on fire, it is not entirely Cam’s fault. He hasn’t been great either. But up to this point, I can’t complain about his production.
Now to get to the point. The Buccaneers will win the NFC South. I’m saying that after seeing the whole season, not just this Sunday’s game. The Buccaneers have the most complete team in the NFC South. They have a strong running game, Josh Freeman can manage a football game, and has some under the radar weapons in his receiving corp. The defense is playing strong. The only hang up is their consistency, which is a better problem to have than some of the others in the NFC South.
The Saints have trouble in the red zone. That is not a good problem to have when your defense is currently giving up 25 points a game. The Falcons just aren’t getting enough out of their offense which should be way more high-powered than it is. The Panthers are the Panthers. They’re just not strong enough to hang in this strong conference. Watch, it’ll play out just the way I said
