Hot Topic: Who wins the NFC West in 2009?


Posted by ESPN.com's Mike Sando

The Arizona Cardinals are NFC West champions for 2008. Are they set up to dominate this division for years to come? If so, why? If not, why? Are the 49ers an emerging team with a chance to challenge for the playoffs next season? Is Seattle finished? Can the Rams rebound?

I've already polled several Seahawks players. The 49ers are optimistic after winning three of their last four games. The Cardinals have earned the right to celebrate the present, but their future at quarterback could be one key variable. I'll be hitting on some of these subjects in an upcoming item, but not without your help. Let's take this Hot Topic and run with it.

I'll pull it all together in the next day or so. Thanks in advance for your contributions.
