2010 NFL Predictions - New York Giants
The New York Giants started the 2009 season strong, getting out of the gate 5-0, but they couldn't sustain their early season form. They won just three games the rest of the way to take third in the NFC East. The season was a major letdown after winning 12 games and the NFC East title in 2008. The offense did its part, scoring 25.1 points per game (8th NFL), but a defense that allowed 26.7 points per contest (30th NFL) severely disappointed. The Giants must play much better defense in 2010 if they hope to challenge for an NFC East title.Offense: Led by Eli Manning, New York put a pretty explosive offensive unit on the field in 2009. Manning threw for 4,021 yards and 27 touchdowns, helping the Giants boast one of the best passing attacks in the NFC.Pro Bowler Steve Smith joined with Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham to form a very productive receiving unit. The trio combined for 211 catches, 2,832 yards and 18 touchdowns. The Giants also got solid production from tight end Kevin Boss, and Travis Beckum figures to play a bigger role this year.The Giants became more of a pass-first team last season, but head coach Tom Coughlin prefers to set up the pass with the run, just as he did when the Giants won Super Bowl XLII. As long as Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw can stay healthy, the Giants can get back to running the football behind one of the better lines in the league.Defense: After the defense gave up 40 or more points in five different games last season, it was time for Bill Sheridan to move on. The organization is very excited about new defensive coordinator Perry Fewell and his aggressive scheme. With Fewell calling the defensive signals, we should see New York's pass rush come back to life.It was New York's ferocious pass rush that did Tom Brady and the Patriots in on Super Bowl Sunday a few short seasons ago. That season, the Giants totaled an impressive 53 sacks. They got after the quarterback again in 2008 with 42 sacks. But last season, New York only tallied 32 quarterback sacks. Fewell is going to do all he can to have New York living in the backfield again. Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck will both be looking for bounce back campaigns, and they'll be aided by first round draft pick Jason Pierre-Paul.If the pass rush comes back, the pass defense should be rock solid now that safety Antrel Rolle joins a quality defensive backfield.Prediction: 2nd NFC East - The Dallas Cowboys appear to be ahead of the Giants as we the 2010 season nears, but New York has enough pieces to be right in the mix for an NFC East crown come December. I ultimately have the Giants coming up just short, but this is a team with the potential to do some damage as a Wild Card, just as they did when they won the Super Bowl three years ago.

2010 NFL Predictions - St Louis Rams
The St. Louis Rams are coming off a 1-15 campaign, and they are just 6-42 over the last three seasons. Three straight last place finishes in the NFC West have been tough to take for a football team that finished either first or second in the division every year from 1999-2006.The NFL is a quarterback's league, and that led the Rams to take Oklahoma's Sam Bradford with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. Recently, we have seen Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco and Mark Sanchez lead their respective teams to the postseason in their rookie years. Unfortunately, I don't see Bradford having the same success.He joins the worst scoring offense in all of football, one that averaged just 10.9 points per game last season.This poor offense is a big reason why odds makers have listed the Rams as a +1500 long shot to win the NFC West.But it is good news that the books have set the Rams' regular season win total line at over/under 5 wins. If the books did indeed nail this number, it means St. Louis will win four more games than they did last season.Offense: Bradford has the potential to develop into an elite NFL quarterback, but his first season on the job will be a learning experience to put it nicely. Bradford won't have much time to throw while playing behind a suspect offensive line.It would be nice to throw A.J. Feeley out there this season to take some lumps while the boys up front continue to mature, but the organization literally can't afford not to play Bradford.The good news for the rookie signal caller is that he has a stud running back to take some of the pressure off of him. Steven Jackson is clearly one of the best running backs in the entire league. He has put together five straight 1,000-yard rushing campaigns while battling injuries and running behind makeshift lines. What could this guy do behind an elite line?The Rams don't have what I would call a true No. 1 wide receiver, but Donnie Avery has the potential to be a very good football player. Fourth-round draft pick Mardy Gilyard could also turn out to be a pleasant surprise.Defense: The Rams gave up 27 or more points in 10 different games last season. Teams were able to do pretty much whatever they wanted against a unit that ranked No. 27 against the run and No. 25 against the pass.While there weren't a lot of positives to reference on this side of the football, middle linebacker James Laurinaitis was certainly a bright spot. The Ohio State product was an absolute animal, recording 108 solo stops, two interceptions and two sacks in his rookie season.Cornerback Ron Bartell did not record an interception, but he still played pretty good football. He has eight interceptions and 46 defensed passes over the last four seasons.Chris Long is yet to live up to the hype he came into the league with, but he started to show glimpses when he recorded five sacks in the final nine games.I like all three of these young players, but this unit is still lacking in the talent department when you compare it to the elite units across the league.Prediction: 4th NFC West - While I expect the Rams to improve on their disastrous 2009 season, I have them bringing up the rear in the division for a fourth straight year. The good news is St. Louis plays in the weakest division in the NFC. In fact, the Cardinals were the only winning team in the West last season, and they are expected to take a step back with the retirement of Kurt Warner. This means that St. Louis will be able to contend a lot sooner than it would if it played in any of the other three NFC divisions.
