For most of the NFL, the focus is already on 2014. The season is over and the post season was either greatly or just inches out of reach for some teams.

Each year we see at least a couple of teams make it to the post season after not making it the previous year so there’s no reason to expect that the twelve teams who’ve kept playing beyond Week 17 this season will be the same twelve come January of next year.

So which team who is watching the playoffs from their couches right now is primed to be in the tournament next year?

    Time for LeBeau to Quietly walk away in Retirement and to give Butler his chance at DC he has waited for before we lose him to Titans.

    I do believe the Falcons will be bounce back because they are mostly decimated by injuries. They still have Matt Ryan at QB with Julio Jones and Roddy White and an emerging Harry Douglas. They only need to improve their defense and their o-line.
