Sean is heading to the North with this NFC Preview

1 GB PACKERS - Aaron Rodgers has Jordy Nelson back at WR and that will be a huge lift offensively. But the leaner looking Eddie Lacy might be a major factor if GB is to contend for a spot in the Conference Championship. Can't ever count out a team with a healthy Rodgers and an improved defense.

2 MIN VIKINGS - Thought for sure these guys would take the next step. But losing Bridgewater for this year, and really, we don't know how bad that injury was, possibly 2. Hence giving up a 1st rounder for injury prone Bradford. He has his old Sooner buddy AP behind him. The WRs are decent enough. The OL is strong. The defense is top notch. If Mark Sanchez can take a limited offense behind a great defense to 2 straight AFC Championship Games, these guys have a shot.

3 DET LIONS - What an improvement after Jim Bob took over things. Stafford looks like a different player. No more Calvin Johnson but the WRs look like they won't miss a beat. Can the defense and rushing attack improve to overtake Minny?

4 CHI BEARS - I like John Fox. But there is still way too many holes on both sides of the ball here. Another down 5-11 type year I see from the Windy City crew.
