    "Hardest-hitting linebacker: Brian Urlacher, Bears."

    I think most fans would easily pick Ray Lewis.

    "Best NFC coaching staff: Redskins"

    On paper maybe.........The Eagles are my pick. They have been to the NFC game 3 straight years.

    I agree with your takes.

    However I will not fault them for taking the Skinz....on paper and from past duties in the NFL...Gibbs and Bugle were pretty darn good.
