  • The NFC is So Pathetic

    The Seahawks are about to drop to 8-7, and they have CLINCHED THEIR DIVISION. At 8-7.

    We are now 9-6 and still must win next week to guarantee a wildcard berth.

    The NFC sucks.

    Yes, yes it does.
    Only fools bet against Tim Tebow.

    Team Tebow #108

    Yards, without points, mean nothing.

      Yup. I wonder why they won the Pro Bowl last year.

      Although Vick's long bomb as he was getting hit was awesome.

      Anyone remember that play? Vick threw the ball into the air for like 60 yards downfield as he was being hit and falling down (he threw it as he was falling down!). Amazingly he threw the ball right on the money, even tho the receiver had to step back a yard or two. Then the receiver caught the ball in triple coverage.

      Crazy play.

        That was a pretty sweet play.

        But the Pro Bowl is one step above a total joke. It means nothing, really. So we can't put a lot of stock in its result.

        The NFC could go on a six game winning streak in the Pro Bowl and still be pathetic.

          Yeah, the NFC lacks player discipline. They also lack quality GM's who know how to find quality players. The NFC tends to overpay their players and coaches.

            The NFC really lacks consistancy. Weren't the Giants 6-2 to start the season? It's so jumbled that seriously any team could win the division any year.(Yes this is true for the AFC as well, but for the most part we know who the AFC contenders are)

            Sorry, you can not add yourself to your own ignore list.

              No, just the NFC West.

              The NFC sucks.
              It's always sucked, even back when it was the only NFC division with four teams and the '9ers could phone in six wins a year and the division title playing the Saints, Rams and Falcons. I think there was all of three years when the Rams or Falcons gave them trouble. No, wait, four; the Rams were in one of the Raider Super Bowls. Of course, the Falcons and Saints are decent teams now, but they're no longer in the NFC West; they get the Seahawks, Rams, '9ers and Cards. You could probably assemble one good playoff team with those four rosters. With the destruction of the Packers and the fact the Lions haven't had a decent teams since the early 50s the North is pretty awful, too. But the NFC East and AFC West are, IMHO, the toughest divisions in football, and if the Cowboys, Giants and Eagles were in a division like the North or the West they'd have 10 wins already. The Saints are a good team, too, but the Panthers and Falcons aren't bad either. Put the shoe on the other foot: do you honestly think we'd be 9-6 if we switched places with the Colts? Or the Pats?

              I'm not sure the disparity is as great as everyone thinks, but all the good teams, with the possible exception of the Bears, are in the same two divisions. With four 7-7 AFC teams on the bubble going into this weekend the bigger issue is that all the good teams are in two divisions, and in the NFC West (or North if you're the Bears) you CAN clinch with 8 wins. Even after their loss to the Saints Dallas has a better record than us and they still haven't clinched, because the Eagles are right behind them, and the Giants were right behind them until NO beat them. It's not the NFC as a whole sucks, it's that the talent is concentrated in just two divisions. You could make the same argument about the AFC; the Colts have lost to Tennessee AND Houston. Would they be 11-4 if Tennessee wasn't the second best team in their division? Though if McNair can pull another miracle against NE next week they've got a good shot at the playoffs; they need 2/3 of us, Cincy and the Jets to lose and a win at home.

                play four games a year against teams that are a combined 17-11. NFC East and NFC South are bad examples, but the NFC West is very consistent--consistently awful. It's no suprise their champ as clinched at 8-6; the surprise is that the Rams and Seahawks have been to three SBs in the last decade, because proving yourself the best team in the NFC West isn't proving much. My local HS team won the AAA state championship yesterday; I think they could go .500 in the West.

                  Before you all go NFC bashing, remember that they had our number for 14 years. Our 1997 Super Bowl win ended that nasty dynasty.


                  But yeah, the chance for a 7-9 team in the playoffs is ludicrious. The NFL needs to take a hard look at the current format.


                  Goooooooooo Broncos!
                  Rest in Peace, Darrent and Damien. You will be forever in our thoughts

                    7-9 won't get you in the playoffs in the NFC. 8-8 will get you in this year though. The Panthers are 7-8 and will get in if they win next week and go to 8-8 and the Packers and Giants HAVE to lose next week , if they both win next weekend , I hate to say it but my Panthers won't make it.

                      There is a scenario where the Giants can make the playoffs at 7-9.

                      And they don't need to change the format. The fact of the matter is, the AFC is stacked with the best teams and the NFC is loaded with mediocracy. Remember that only one AFC team won a SB in the 80s (Raiders in 80 & 83) and only 1 AFC team won a SB in the 90s (Denver in 97 & 98) so the AFC has been the little sister for 17 years before this current run.

                        I believe this is due from years ago when the Rams were "The Greatest Show on Turf". Many of the teams could not stop them with their defense, and therefore, tried to keep up the scoring with a high-powered offense.

                        As we see, That definitely backfired.

                          nfc is pathetic, and the only proof you need aside from the afc vs nfc head to head record is this stat

                          the afc division leaders right now turnover ratio is +40
                          the nfc division leaders turnover ratio is +5

                          all 4 afc division leaders have a + turnover ratio with 3 of the teams having double digit + ratios

                          only 2 of 4 nfc leaders have a + ratio, and the seahawks are a -9 ratio with the saints being a -2


                          it's pathetic


                          the saints are 10-5 but 1-3 vs the afc (and they're supposedly the 'best offense' in the nfl
