I guess because I'm a history guy, and I hate a lot of change in the NFL, but sometimes change is inevitable. Will curious to see how this plays out.
    The Seattle Seahawks were in the AFC West from 1977 through 2001, twenty-five years. That's a fairly long time, but not nearly as long as the fifty-four years the Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs and Raiders have been playing each other. We'll see what goes down.

    IMO, it was a shame that Georgia Frontiere moved the Rams out of LA, but that's the way it goes with owners..

    I think we would split with the Seahawks...every year.

    Alot of people forget that Seattle is beatable when they're on the road......


    With that said,the Raiders should stay in the AFC West...they're our biggest rivalry

    I loved the American Football League. Seattle wasn't in the AFL. Broncos, Chargers, Chiefs/Texans and Raiders constitute the only original, completely intact division from the AFL.

    I think the idea is preposterous.
    Define "playing". I would argue that the NFL destroyed that rivalry - the longest running rivalry in the AFC (both teams were in the NFL and switched with the merger). The Browns-Steelers is a rivalry like a Gazelle is a rival of a Lion.

    The NFL destroyed that rivalry and the history of the team when they gave their seal of approval to Modell.

    Yep, Modell. The man who destroyed the Browns.

    Shoot, while we're at it, why don't we just have a stadium rotation each year by lottery.

    Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb...

    It would make no sense to move the Raiders to the NFC.

    Same here!. I want our division to be one of, or if not the best in the NFL. I think that you can take certain pride in playing against stiff competition twice in a regular season. You know the saying "Iron sharpens Iron".
