NFC West preview: Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks

The wait is almost over and the brand new NFL season is upon us!
The 100th year of the league starts Thursday, September 5 if the Chicago Bears host the Green Bay Packers, live on Sky Sports.
Until then, it’s time to assess the contenders of 2019.
We are previewing all eight branches, and here it is possible to find our perspectives onto the NFC West and cast your vote on who you think will win under…
Head coach: Sean McVay
Key man: It is crazy to believe there are question marks enclosing Todd Gurley. That is a man who tallied 21 touchdowns this past year, but in addition the exact same man the Rams abandoned at the postseason.
Gurley had just 30 carries within their Super Bowl run, 10 of those for only 35 yards coming in the big game itself, apparently troubled with a knee injury. Which variant of this back will we find in 2019?
Significant improvements: It has been a quiet offseason at Los Angeles however, considering their competitive moves in free agency just 12 months ago, their roster looks piled.
The addition to a stellar defense is former Green Bay Packer, Clay Matthews, while security Eric Weddle is just another good veteran pickup from the Baltimore Ravens. Moreover, they have added that the Blake Bortles. Yeah….
Year: Oh so near. The Rams appeared every bit the very best team in football on their way to some mark, tied with the New Orleans Saints, who they would conquer at a NFC Championship match that was thrilling. However, that the Super Bowl itself established a damp squib, together with the volatile L.A. offense forced to punt nine days plus a record-low three points.
Prospects: Not very likely to be the cakewalk into the Super Bowl that year was shown to be. They were convincingly beaten by the New England Patriots at the season showpiece at Atlanta signifies a few are sleeping the Rams but coaching savant McVay is sure to engineer another season.
Prediction: 1st (11-5)
Head coach: Pete Carroll
Key person: Russell Wilson. The Seahawks quarterback eventually got the bargain his superb drama for seven seasons in Seattle so deserved, but if he’s worth a NFL-leading, four-year bargain is another issue. One thing Wilson enjoys to do is prove the doubters wrong.
Big improvements: Wilson has a brand new toy to play at wide receiver at D.K. Metcalf, among those much-hyped Ole Miss duo, together with A. J. Brown — who ended up using the Tennessee Titans.
Metcalf was a snip in the second round, picked 64th and may have a direct impact — pending his return from minor knee operation. With the ever-reliable Doug Baldwin having retired from the offseason he would need also to.
Naturally, 2014 # 1’s addition choice Jadeveon Clowney can help Seattle come back to their dominant days on protection.
Year: The 2018 season has been anticipated to be a down year for the Seahawks, but Pete Carroll’s team dumbfounded the critics once more, driving a , young roster that is promising in the playoffs and to a 10-6 finish. Ironically, the dream then ended early with a Wild Card defeat to the Dallas Cowboys, but the postseason (and maybe more) beckons once more.
Prospects: The Seahawks are arguably just bettered also a New England Patriots plus by Bill Belichick because of their consistency over the last decade. Seattle have failed to make the playoffs in the previous seven seasons, and even then — in 2017 — they ended a more than respectable 9-7.
Prediction: 2nd (10-6)
Head coach: Kyle Shanahan
Key person: Jimmy Garoppolo. Jimmy G may don’t wrong when contributing a 49ers facet to a 5-0 end in the 2017 year — viewing him seven wins in the first seven NFL starts.
However, with an underwhelming start to last season before an injury in Week Three ruled him out for the rest of the year, and some ropey preseason action since — throwing five consecutive interceptions at a training session — the strain is now actually on the $27.5-m-a-year person to deliver.
Additions: The 49ers have desperately seemed to bolster a defense that forced just seven turnovers! That’s 10 fewer than the second-worst team.
Edge rusher Dee Ford and his 13 sacks and seven forced fumbles in the this past season with the Kansas City Chiefs will be the obvious man as will be second overall draft pick Nick Bosa. The set will lead to a fair few sleepless nights to get quarterbacks across the nation.
Look out who may quickly standout out of a receiving corps that is thin-looking. The San Francisco backfield looked stacked at RB with the accession of former Atlanta Falcon Tevin Coleman, but a second harm in two years for Jerick McKinnon sets a dampener on things.
Season: the season ended when Garoppolo was missing to a rather innocuous-looking sprint down the sideline of San Francisco. A mini Nick Mullens-led revival finally brought short of their double digits, but well four wins which most had tipped them .
Prospects: A sub .500 record will be regarded as a disappointment by many, particularly considering San Francisco have included some device tipped by horses season and some pieces that are exciting. But the 49ers have yet to convince this can be a middling NFL staff in the best, until they do this and, they could compete with the big boys.
Prediction: 3rd (7-9)
Head coach: Kliff Kingsbury
Key man: » There can be no doubt about itthe No 1 selection from the 2019 NFL Draft. The dual-threat quarterback is not merely the important man due to his undoubted ability — past year’s Heisman Trophy in school — but also because the Cardinals needed him so much they were ready to take away their first-round-drafted QB from just 12 months prior, the now-Miami Dolphin, Josh Rosen.
Improvements: Murray was the haul of 11 draft picks for Arizona. Recipient pick-up Hakeem Butler, from Iowa State, appeared a steal, only for a hand in preseason to place his rookie season in peril.
Of their work at no agency, Baltimore Ravens stalwart Terrell Suggs’ coming was the greatest surprise, with all the linebacker arriving on a deal. Cornerback Robert Alford, from end Charles Clay and the Atlanta Falcons , officially of the Buffalo Bills, are other additions.
Last year: A NFL-worst 3-13 finish. The Cardinals, in their first year because 2012 without the Bruce Arians in the helm, were expecting 2018 for a down year, although nowhere near as disastrous as it was proved. So much so it cost scapegoat, also rookie head coach, Steve Wilks his job.
Prospects: They will be greater. Not by far, but Murray’s presence alone — paired with use of 2016 first-team — will be very likely to propel the Cardinals to at least a couple more wins.
Prediction: 4th (5-11)
