Dynamic rookies and second-year players look poised to change the NFC West from NFL laughingstock to a collection of legitimate contenders.

The 2008 Arizona Cardinals had the worst regular season record (9-7) of any team in Super Bowl history, a feat matched only by the 2011 New York Giants and 1979 Los Angeles Rams. They appeared on a Top 10 list of worst Super Bowl teams published by the New York Daily News.

Then the 2010 Seattle Seahawks had the worst regular season record (7-9) of any division winner and playoff team in NFL history as the NFC West failed to produce a winning team.

Only one NFC West team finished with a winning record in 2009 and 2011.

It won't happen overnight, but a turnaround is coming. All four teams feature exciting young players ready to make an instant impact.

Let's take a closer look at the best of the bunch.
