Around the NFC South

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

Time for a quick trip around the NFC South.

PANTHERS

Fantasy football players, take your pick. DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart each rushed for 100 yards Saturday night. It's looking more and more like coach John Fox will have to split the carries on something close to a 50-50 basis. But Stewart probably will get the goal-line carries.


FALCONS


Mark Bradley writes that the Falcons could start the season 2-1, thanks to a favorable early schedule. But he realistically forecasts a five-win season.

BUCCANEERS

Quarterback Chris Simms doesn't think he'll be traded. More likely, the Bucs will have to release Simms because his trade value is minimal and the rest of the league knows Tampa Bay won't be keeping him on the roster.

SAINTS

The team spent the offseason trying to overhaul the defense. The results are starting to show. It looks like rookie Tracy Porter will earn a starting spot at cornerback.
