    The last AFC Central division was the Titans, Jaguars, Bengals, Browns, Ravens, and Steelers.

    Splitting this division up was the toughest, especially since the Texans wanted to be a part of it too. The Bengals, Browns, and Steelers were definitely going to be in the North, so the NFL owners had to figure out who team #4 would be. The Ravens won out since they were the originally the Browns.

    The owners just weren't going to split up the Dolphins from the East (same problem with Dallas in the NFC), so Indy was forced to go to the South, along with the Titans, Jags, and Texans. The Titans and Texans owner's (as well as the Raven's and Ram's owners) were not allowed to vote as part of their deals for expansion/moving.

    I have always seen the Titans as the linchpin to the AFC South. The Titans have ties with the Texans since that is their original city. They have been big rivals with the Jags since their existence, and Peyton Manning has big ties to Tennessee.

    You can't break up Cleveland -Pitt-Baltimore (Cleveland b).... RIVALRIES is what puts butts in the seats.

    You can't break up the NFC East with Dallas, Giants, Washington...those are HUGE Rivalries! The Dallas vs Washington game is STILL one they look for to predict the presidential election!

    Then you are talking about moving the Miami-Bills-Jets matchups??

    Thats why things were left as much as they could together. Keeping the BIG and oldest rivalries together and continued so that these teams continue to play each other twice a year.
    there would be new rivalries after a few years

    No, you can't Break up the Cleveland-Pittsburgh-Cincinnatti rivalry.

    But you can break the Baltimore one. It's no rivalry. It's an upstart team created to replace the departed Baltimore Colts (The Indianapolis Colts). Let Baltimore have their rivalry with the Colts. That's how it should be. The BIG rivalries should stay together. Cleveland-Pittburgh, Pittsburgh-Cinci, Cleveland-Cinci. Baltimore-Indianapolis

    Since you state that Seattle didn't have much of a rivalry in the AFC West how about Baltimore in the AFC North? Since 1996. That isn't tradition. That is something new.

    How about the Jets-Colts - since Namath beat them

    And you assertion that it puts "butts" in the seats in the AFC North is ludicrous. The Browns have never had a problem losing fans. The Browns annually sell out their stadium.

    BTW, the fool that posted that:

    Denver has Back To Back Super Bowls and the Packers don't - well he is sadly mistaken.

    The Packers won the first TWO Super Bowls. I would say that winning The AFL-NFL Championship Game (SBI) and Super Bowl II are back to back...
    Ya but that was pretty fun though,

    I still like the idea that i posted before though

    I see Broncomania - so a Bronco fan.

    Yet you have a Packer helmet and it says ... GO PACKERS.

    Those are mixed signals....

    Disagree with your AFC North.

    Colts and Ravens should be in the same division.

    Move them to East (Reuniting Colts with old division rival Jets) and moving the Bills to the AFC North.
    that would be a dream right there

    started a topic Divisions in NFL

    Divisions in NFL

    I don´t get why the divisions are what they are in the NFL

    AFC
    East

    Bills
    Patriots
    Dolphins
    Jets

    West
    Broncos
    Chargers
    Chiefs
    Raiders

    South
    Jaguars
    Colts
    Titans
    Texans

    North
    Ravens
    Bengals
    Browns
    Steelers


    NFC
    East
    Cowboys
    Giants
    Eagles
    Redskins

    West
    Rams
    Cardinals
    49ers
    seahawks

    South
    Falcons
    Saints
    Buccaneers
    Panthers

    North
    Bears
    Lions
    Packers
    Vikings


    A look at the US map shows:
    AFC East: all teams accept Dolphins are in the northeast, so My idea would be to change it to
    Bills
    Patriots
    Ravens
    Jets

    AFC West: it accually works kind of good, all teans are in the western parts of US
    Broncos
    Chargers
    Chiefs
    Raiders

    AFC South: Well... there are lots of teams in AFC that are south of indianapolis, but Miami is far south of them so they move here
    Jaguars
    Dolphins
    Titans
    Texans

    AFC North: Well... Afc North could work as it is, but since i moved Ravens to East, I´ll have to move Colts to North
    Colts
    Bengals
    Browns
    Steelers

    NFC East: Dallas isn´t exatly eastcoast of the US, So they´ll have to move away from the east
    Panthers
    Giants
    Eagles
    Redskins

    NFC West: We will stick with the NFC west even though we could move both the vikings and the cowboys here
    Rams
    Cardinals
    49ers
    seahawks

    NFC South: Dallas is quite south, and are in the NFC, so I´ll put them here
    Falcons
    Saints
    Buccaneers
    Cowboys

    NFC North: I accually like the NFC north, real close between the teams
    Bears
    Lions
    Packers
    Vikings
Working...
