The NFC West at a Glance

ESPN's John Clayton weighs in with his thoughts on the division

NFC West

Seattle Seahawks -- Mike Holmgren is known for having great offensive teams, but the defense will be the most fun to watch. The Seahawks signed defensive end Patrick Kerney to add a pass rush. Watching him mix rushes with linebacker Julian Peterson will be fun. The Seahawks revamped the secondary by adding safeties Deon Grant and Brian Russell, and will mix in young cornerbacks Kelly Jennings and Josh Wilson.

San Francisco 49ers -- Other than the Patriots, the 49ers had the best offseason of any team in football. Mike Nolan gets to display the new talent in camp. Nate Clements will help the secondary. As much as the 49ers know they need improvement on defense, it will be the offense that will be the show in camp. Alex Smith will be throwing the ball to second-year tight end Vernon Davis and newly acquired wide receivers Darrell Jackson and Ashley Lelie.

Arizona Cardinals -- Not since Alex Gibbs went to Atlanta has there been this much excitement about an offensive line coach. Russ Grimm goes to the Cardinals with the idea of running the ball 30 to 35 times a game. It will allow Edgerrin James to move back into the limelight and make it easier on second-year quarterback Matt Leinart.

St. Louis Rams -- The Rams added WR Drew Bennett and TE Randy McMichael to an already-loaded offense. Everyone expects quarterback Marc Bulger to show up on time even if he doesn't get a new contract. He has plenty of offensive weapons, including halfback Steven Jackson, who wants to put together 2,500 yards of total offense.
