Every year for a decade or so, a team went from last in its division one year to winning its division the follow year. In 2010, Kansas City did it, keeping the streak alive. Most years, the NFC Southeast had one of them -- New Orleans, Carolina, Tampa Bay, Atlanta were like a revolving door, taking turns winning the division.
So -- who will it be this year?
Last year's WORST were:
East - Washington, 6-10
North - Lions & Minnesota, both 6-10
South - Carolina, 2-14
West - Arizona, 5-11
East - Buffalo, 4-12
North - Cincinnati, 4-12
South - Tennessee & Houston, both 6-10
West - Denver, 4-12
This being a forum mostly frequented by people in Michigan, I'm going to assume most posters here will say the Lions are most likely to win. But they have to climb over Green Bay and Chicago. That's a tall order, even assuming the QB stays healthy (which has, like, never happened). The "worst to first" usually happens in divisions without one (much less two) dominant teams.
I'll guess Arizona -- maybe Kolb is the guy, but importantly, that division STILL STINKS. Houston would be my other guess, but that assumes the Colts have an off-year.
