NFC West is more than just 49ers and Seahawks

With all the hype surrounding the Seahawks and 49ers heading into the 2013 season, it’s easy to forget about the other two teams in the NFC West.

The defending NFC champion 49ers will certainly be the biggest challenger for the Seahawks towards a division title, but the St. Louis Rams finished just under .500 in 2012 and could be a sleeper team, and the Arizona Cardinals’ addition of quarterback Carson Palmer makes them a much bigger threat than when they had John Skelton and Kevin Kolb taking snaps last season.

Bob Stelton and Damon Huard spent Thursday on “Bob and Groz” previewing the other NFC West teams with beat writers for each rival — Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee (49ers), Bryan Burwell of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (Rams), and Kent Somers of Arizona Central (Cardinals). In the video below, Stelton and Howard go back through the NFC West and detail what the Seahawks need to look out for in 2013.
