NFC North Preview 2019

The NFC North is one Toughest Division in the greenzone
The packers have one the Division the past Two years
They looking as Leaders in 2019 Let take Closer Look at Each Team
as we Ready for WK 1


2018 Standings.


Packers
When you think about The Packers you think Defense
There 3-4 Defense IMO is what Won them 2 Straight Division Titles
Adding Rolando McClain from Raiders will only strengthen an already great Defense Unit

On Offence
The Team added Some very Good Players Including Billy Crockett and Mc Glennon
But this Team is Lead by it running game and Very good O-line when comes to Offence.
The Packers are Smash Mouth Team Like only black and Blue Divison of the NFL

Biggest Lost This off season : OLB Clay Mathews
Biggest Addition this off-Season :MLB Rolando McClain


predictions if they Lines can stay Healthy Packers should win 10 to 12 Games and Another north title



Lions
This was year of change in Detroit as Old Guard is slowing moving on
The Lions Dropped many of vets to get Young and hungry .
Losing players like Heloti Ngata Logan Mankins and Calvin Johnson
The Team did make it 2nd Wild card in Row last season.

On Defense The Team will be Lead by Martez Wilson & Josh Ware
The lions have very good Middle but have been killed by run the past 3 seasons.
The Lions add KJ Wright from Miami to Bolster the Teams run Defense
The question is was it enough


On Offence The Team will be Lead by Matt Stafford in Final year of his deal in Detroit
But the focus of the offense may change to more balanced Attack to Try keep the aging QB Healthy
The lions lost Stafford durring the playoff Run
Back up QB Cameron Hester has been in battle With Top Draft pick Marcus Mariota to Keep the Heir Apparent to #1
Job

Biggest lost Calvin Johnson WR
Biggest Gain KJ Wright OLB

predictions 500 or slightly better 9 and 7




Bears:
The bears loaded up last year to make super bowl run
it Failed now as they Reload I expect them to be Biggest threat to the packers
On Defense The Bears how one meanest Fronts in the League
with Morgan McCoy Bailey and Clowney This group give O-line coaches nightmares.
They have veteran Secondary that will not be fooled often.

On Offence Collin Klein has been very good QB for them but Failed to Lead them to the promise land.
That only bears Traded Mike Evans to Bucks in Return they gave up size but gain Speed.
With Jorge Lloyd IMO this was huge Error But did add Morgan as part that deal
so could balance out .

Biggest Loss Mike Evans WR
Biggest Gain Derrick Morgan.DE

predictions 10 and 6



Vikings


What Can Say about Vikings
Lead by MLB Luke Kuechly and New added Taylor Mays
The Vikings Defense has been heart of this Team
But the been some turn over on good unit


On Offence QB Colt McCoy was let Go
Taking over as Full Time Starter will be Jake Locker
The Vikings added a Very good RB in Draft in Tevin Coleman
I expect them to lean heavy on Run this year

predictions 6 and 10




Preseason Standings
Lions 3-1
Packers 3-1
Vikings 3-1
Bears 1-3
