NFC Players on the Rise and Fall

NFC East: Rising

LaRon Landry, S Washington Redskins

The Redskins D has been anchored by Landry. He is second in the NFL in total tackles and has applied pressure on QB’s relentlessly. His diving interception against the Packers in overtime was perfect timing.

Giants D

For two weeks in a row the Giants D pummeled the opposing QB. They’ve stopped the run and held opponents under ten points in the past two games.

Falling

Eli Manning, QB New York Giants

He better hand out gifts to the defense because without them the Giants would be 1-4.
His 1:1 touchdown interception ratio does not fit his $97 million contract.

Dallas Cowboys

Right from the coaching all the way down to boneheaded players like Marc Colombo, this team has been underachieving.

NFC North: Rising

Julius Peppers, DE Chicago Bears

The Bears D has been on point this season allowing only 15 points a game, fifth best in the league. A big reason is Peppers. Peppers has been a maniac this season in pursuing QBs and RBs. The move from Carolina has really rejuvenated him

Shaun Hill, QB Detroit Lions

Ever since Week 3 his stats have been increasing steadily. His performance means they don’t have to rush Matthew Stafford back from injury.

Falling

Brett Favre, QB Minnesota Vikings

Sans the off-field allegations, Favre has been miserable on the field. Judging from the first few games of the season Favre’s magical season last year was just that — magical.

NFC South: Rising

John Abraham, DE Atlanta Falcons

Abraham has been spearheading a stingy Atlanta defense. He already has four sacks this season.

Raheem Morris, Head coach Tampa Bay Buccaneers

He inherited a young team and has made the most out of it. The young Bucs are growing right before our eyes and Morris is guiding them in the right direction.

Falling

Saints Running Game

Is Reggie Bush really an integral part of the Saints’ offense? Injuries to Pierre Thomas and Bush have left the Saints a one-dimensional team.

Jonathan Stewart and DeAngelo Williams, RBs Carolina Panthers

The duo was supposed to provide rookie Jimmy Clausen some support. Instead, they’ve combined to score only two touchdowns so far.

NFC West: Falling

San Francisco 49ers

This team is just plain dysfunctional. If they can’t earn a win against Oakland this team needs a new had coach and quarterback stat.
