The dust has not yet settled in the NFL free agency period, but there may be a new favorite in the NFC.
"The Seahawks have made the biggest jump of any of the three teams ... Certainly San Francisco still is a very strong team, but Seattle is a more difficult matchup for them now."
"The Seahawks were the best NFC team at the end of the 2012 season, and the moves they've made this offseason have only strengthened their hold ... Just looking on paper, it's hard to find a weakness."
"What else does Seattle need? They're now loaded everywhere ... I can't see San Francisco maintaining that mental edge that's needed over the course of the offseason, 16 more games and the playoffs to make it out of the NFC again."
