On Tuesday, I ran this post on why I think the Atlanta Falcons will be the NFC South’s dominant team from 2014 through 2016. That generated a ton of comments and I can’t wait to open the mailbag.

I’m sure there are plenty of Atlanta fans out there who strongly agree with me. I’m also certain there are plenty of New Orleans, Carolina and Tampa Bay fans who totally disagree.

It’s possible any of those teams could be better than Atlanta in that time period. But some things need to happen for that to come true. For New Orleans, Drew Brees and Jonathan Vilma need to avoid the aging process and the Saints need to keep importing young talent.

For Tampa Bay, the Bucs already have a big piece of the puzzle in quarterback Josh Freeman. But they still need to surround him with more players on both sides of the ball. For Carolina, the Panthers need quarterback Cam Newton to show he was worthy of the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft.

Now, it’s your turn to vote on the NFC South’s dominant team from 2014-16. Hit our Call It poll to the right with your vote.
