This one really is tough, fans. I went with the Arizona Cardinals. I have documented faith in these guys trading for Fitzgerald then picking up Kolb off waivers in our keeper league. The Cards are two years removed from the SB -- and while I attribute a ton of that to Kurt Warner -- they still have a playoff team at almost every position. If Kolb lives up to expectations, has even an above average year (24 TD's or more) and the Cards should be able to hold off the Rams for at least one more year.
The Rams have the talent and arguably the best QB in the division. That goes a long way. But they also have a brand new offense and a lot of new players learning that system. And a lot of them are young (WR's). And psycho meglo-maniac aka Mini-Martz aka Josh McDaniels at O coordinator has to prove himself before shaking the stigma that comes with him. He Millened the Broncos. But he was HC there. He shouldn't be able to do as much damage from the OC position, but I still need to see it to be sold on him.
Unsure who has better looking defense, Rams or Cards. Should be an exciting couple of games between these two. I think the division hangs in the balance in these two games.
49ers wow what a fall from grace. They looked like sure-fire division winners last year, this year new HC, and big time questions at QB remain. Could be an ugly year again for the Niners.
I don't know what to say about the Seahawks other than this time next year I expect to be talking about their new rookie top 3 QB pick and their new Head Coach.

Just not seeing Kolb making a big difference in year one...as he will be getting sacked left and right. Seahawks and 49ers are both kind of blah. Guess that leaves the Rams winning the division by default. Hopefully someone gets over .500.
