One glaring stat that screams pretender about the Cardinals is their QB's are sacked at a higher percentage of drop back attempts than any team in the NFL ....
Minnesota Im not sold on yet .... The win against the 49ers gives them some credability.
Ny Jets - Pretender. Bad QB play , no playmakers and a loon for a coach ....
Buffalo - Pretender that can win or lose any game they play.
Green Bay .... Hard to call them pretenders. But they dont look anything like the teams that have dominated the NFC North in recent years.
Detriot - Pretender. They remind me of the 2010 Texans just finding a way to lose despite their talent. They have to go thru some growing pains.
Cincy - Contender. They can play with anyone. Dalton is the real deal.
Washington - Im on the fence. RG3 is a hell of a player but still makes some rookie mistakes. That defense has lost some key pieces already.
Philly - Pretender. Lots of talent that just doesnt mesh.
Hope is a poor mans disease.
