Pat Yasinskas' ESPN NFC-South Blog today lists rising and falling stock in the division.

Here's the short version:

FALLING:
John Fox, coach, Panthers
Michael Turner, running back, Falcons
Byron Leftwich, quarterback, Buccaneers

RISING:
Gregg Williams, defensive coordinator, Saints
Pierre Thomas, running back, Saints
Jahri Evans, guard, Saints

In Yasinskas' words: "We’ll make it a sweep for the Saints because they were the only victorious NFC South team this week."

I would add the entire Defensive line to that list of risers.
Well, our defense was going up against mostly rookie and replacement players on their O-line, which isn't to minimize what they did, but I think it was EXPECTED they'd play pretty well against the Bills. The offensive line was blowing giant holes in the Bills defense even late in the game when everyone on the field KNEW we'd be running it. So I think, if I had to pick a stock riser, I'd go with PY's choices. Anyway, he DID single out 3G, right?

It was just a matter of time before ole slow hand was benched. People who keep buying the Leftwich hype deserve what they get.

Didn't he pick us third--in the division, not in the league.

Bet he wishes that prediction back.

Yes, I believe he did.

If you haven’t seen ESPN.com’s massive predictions project, it’s up. Fourteen of our writers took part and the consensus for the NFC South goes exactly like this. (You can click on each team for its individual preview page.)

1. Atlanta

2. Carolina

3. New Orleans

4. Tampa Bay

That’s the order I went in and the rest of our voters agreed. I went back and forth on this order multiple times before finally locking in my vote. I’ll share with you the logic that went behind my rankings.

...

I also took the cautious approach on the Saints, but that’s mainly based on history. I picked the Saints to win the division last year and they underachieved. I think the Saints have way more talent and a better defense than last year, but I want to see all that in reality before going out on a limb this time.
