The Saints and the Vikings look very powerful in the NFC. Can any other team possibly hope to compete with them?

Mike Mayock, NFL Network
Hey Yueh, I believe that the Saints and Vikings are clearly the dominant teams in the NFC. If Favre stays healthy the Vikings could very well be the last team standing. The AFC has a lot more depth and I think there are 6-8 teams that could end up being the best team coming out of the AFC.

If you had to chose the Offensive POY, Defensive POY, and MVP, who would they be right now?

Dwight, the offensive player of the year and the MVP are the same person to me and that would be Drew Brees of the Saints. Interestingly enough, Favre may be right behind him and I think Peyton Manning may be having the best season he's ever had. I think the NFL has more quality QBs than at any time in its history. On defense, that's a tougher question, but Darren Sharper, the free agent acquisition of the Sainst would be a logical choice.

As much as I love to watch AP in Minnesota run the ball, I am glad to see they are not feeding him 400+ times and burning him out. By design for longevity or just a result of game circumstances? Thoughts?

Hey Joe, pretty easy answer here and the name is Brett Favre. If Tarvaris Jackson was still the QB, he's be looking at 400-plus carries this year, but a d coordinator is forced to pick his poison when game planning the vikings. Throw Percy Harvin in the mix with Sidney Rice and bernard berrian and AP becomes even more effective

Mohamed, love Harvin and he certainly is one of the front runner of rookie of the year. On offense, tackle Michael Oher has played extremely well in Baltimore and Knowshon moreno has done a great jobin Denver. On defense, Jairus Byrd from Buffalo has played tremendously well, as have LBs Brian Cushing and Aaron Curry.

Interesting response. I hadn't considered Michael Oher in the ROY race. I wonder if the publicity from "The Blind Side" will get him votes that would have otherwise gone to a 'skill position' player.

At first, I didn't get the Blind Side connection.
For the others that are slow like me, it is the movie coming out about Michael Oher.

The book was fantastic. I highly suggest reading it.

But yes, interesting answer. I agree hard with Cushing. He is crushing it this year.
