The NFC West has been one of the NFL's weakest divisions since 2006. The entire division has gone 66-133 against the rest of the league in regular season play over that time. The best record any team had in one season was 6-4, done one time each by the Seattle Seahawks, Saint Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals.

Yet two teams from the division have represented the NFC in the Super Bowl since 2005. With the rapid improvements made by rebuilding teams, it is feasible to see this division have more Super Bowl appearances in the near future.

While there isn't much to be proud about a 2010 season that saw a pair of 7-9 teams battle in the final regular season game for the division crown, the winner of the NFC West did go on to oust the defending champion New Orleans Saints in the playoffs.

The future of the NFC West appears bright, but the present has a bunch of teams capable of going all the way. There is a lot of talent to behold, even if it is in a division that hasn't gotten much appreciation in recent years.
