Pssh. There is no media agenda. They loved 12 more than Griffin before the season started. Trust me, any other fan of a team other than the Colts/Redskins know how much these guys were talked about ad nauseum. Griffin deserved the award. I think they all have pretty good futures.

Please. Even ESPN talked about how Luck was flying under the radar for being the first pick.

If he hadn't gotten injured against the Seahawks who knows how far that offense would have taken them. Griffin won the NFC East as a rookie...It's not hard to imagine that he's going to make some Super Bowls.

The NFC east was sort of a joke this season in case u missed it

If by under the radar you mean,  " Well, enough talk about him. Now for the second pick, who isn't the next Elway, but he's pretty darn good too! The Redskins will be making the right decision!"  Pfft.

Yeah, and that's Griffin's fault. He beat the Super Bowl defending champions whether you want to downplay it or not, outplayed Eli, Romo. The South was a bit of a joke this year too, as well as last year, if you really want to go there.

Never said it was his fault...nor did I say the afc south was good....so I'm not sure what your point is

Were they lying? I think it's far too early to determine if 12 is as good as Elway. Far too early. But a Texans fan being here has absolutely no bearing on this conversation, so before you pull the next "backed-into-corner-and-I-have-no-argument" cliche, I'll say it first...troll. :thmup: haha

It was a simple point...the NFC east was not that good this year. Not sure why u got your panties in a wad over a simple observation

It seems your panties are the ones in a wad. The South was, again, not very good this year, and even the point of one poster recently comes to mind:  " Luck could have won the division this year."  Griffin got it done, and he's faulted for it and all of a sudden it's a weak division. How many people predicted the Redskins would win the East here...besides me, and the Redskins fans of course.

Weren't the Cowboys, Giants & Redskins all in a possible playoff contention till the last wk-17 game of the season?

Yea..that's right. I remember...

 

The winner of the Redskins/Cowboys wins division

and the Giants had to beat eagles (did)

and needed the Bears & Vikings to lose to get wildcard.

 

I wouldn't call 3 playoff caliber teams a "bad & weak division" of the NFC East.

 

If it wasn't for that terrible Redskins secondary in the first Giants game where Cruz catches a ball behind the secondary with a 1:30 left, RG3 brings the Redsins to a comeback win over the Giants and the Redskins sweep the NFC East of 6-0.

 

Now that's impressive.

The afc was poor, but that has nothing to do with my point. Your appeared to make a correlation between griffin winning a down nfc east as a rookie and going to the SB......and I disagreed....nothing more nothing less

Being in playoff contention doesn't make you a good team. I think if u ask most people three teams in the division underachieved....then again Dallas always does

He had a lead against an NFC West team/Super Bowl contender in the postseason...but yes, we will just have to agree to disagree.

The fan of the texans on a crazy board who has the biggest man crush on rg3 I've seen. Must be a younger thing obsessed with all this flash and crap. Cause in no way did rg3 ever impress me during the season. Oh look he scrambled around and ran on a defense. Slowest qb's in the nfl can do that, it's because they're converting the te's and Wr's! Luckily he is faster so he can get a few more yards along with those injuries. But hey, he has a great personality.

Yes they were all in contention to make the playoffs with 9-7 and 8-8 records. Impressive.

I thought griffin was impressive and really have no problem with him winning ROY. I just think it's clear the media loves the kid...at times for littlel reason

Ha. We all know about your black QB conspiracy theory. Man crush? It's called not being blinded by homerism.

Not really. There's nothing impressive about 8-8 or 9-7 regardless of conference.

If it's for playoff contention, then yeah, it is. Records don't tell the whole story sometimes when it comes to talent. Eli and Romo, two media darlings, didn't go anywhere and had all of their weapons healthy. No philosophical changes on defense either. At least 9-7 is actually a winning record though.

No it's not. It's the sign of a weak division when a division winner can win with a 9-7 or 8-8 record. Talent ≠ a good team. If it did then Dallas would have won the last 5 Super Bowls.

Dallas is not that talented. They have talented but not that good to expect that many SBs lol. Manning made the most of his talent last year and did not this year. Nor did the Eagles. Griffin did. Still doesn't mean it's a weak division, as evidenced by the last game of the season, the East is still a very competitive division.

Yep the last game of the season where Dallas couldn't muster up 2 Tds vs one of the worst defenses in the league and RG3 couldn't throw for 100 yards is a great example at what a powerhouse division the East is. The east is easily the most overrated division in the league.

Backed into a corner? Lol, far from it youngster. "They" have been talking about changing the way the qb position is played for a long long time. Back when you was still running around in your diapers. It's a shame this day and age is to be cool its about wearing pants sagging whether that be skinny jeans or baggy and listening to C"rap" music. I don't want the nfl turning into a joke the NBA is.

Who would you exactly qualify as a "competitve division"? Certainly none of the ones in the AFC. NFC West has two bottom feeders, as does the NFC South, the North weren't impressive this year either. At least the teams in the East kept it competitive till the last game of the season.

A bunch of overrated teams vs a bunch of overrated teams, of course it's going to be competitive and entertaining to watch them struggle.

 

The AFC North is the best division in the AFC. They could send 3 teams to the playoffs on any given year.

 

The NFC North is easily the best division in the league. The Colts went 3-1 against them.

And your prejudice shines through again...wth are you talking about, I ask again? Look at the QB for the 49ers...it's been changing, whether you like it or not. I don't know who "they" are, but you seem to be paranoid about something. The NFL is nothing like the NBA, and rap and baggy pants aren't related to running QBs at all. What are you getting at here?

Oh, you mean the division with the self-imploding Bears, the resurgent Vikings (carried by a single player, Adrian Peterson) and the Packers with their suspect defense? And I don't even want to mention the Lions...that's three bad teams, or, if we're going by this year alone, three bad teams this year, with the Vikings barely managing to squeak into the postseason, where they were shown to be the true team that they are. The AFC North is good, but again, going by this year...Steelers were not impressive. The Bengals played well but went down easily, again, against a good team in the PS. The Ravens are good but they did not play well for a stretch of time in the season. And the Browns...

Ok so what you're saying is that a Division with teams that went 10-6, 9-7, 8-8, and 4-12 is better than a division that went 11-5, 10-6, 10-6, and 4-12 and had 2 playoff teams. I see where you are coming from now.

AFC NFC...we all know how that goes. I would be slobbering at the mouth facing teams like the Browns, Chiefs, Chargers if I was an NFL player...we all learned that playing great against sub-par opposition won't help you much in the playoffs when the Broncos played the Ravens.

Still don't see what sagging pants and rap have to do with Griffin's flash. The Manning brothers have flash. Arian Foster has flash. Nothing wrong with it.

Again, picking at my statehood isn't helping your pitiful argument in any way. There's plenty of substance down here, brochacho. My posts are much more credible than yours too, it seems.

Well that "hard-hitting" competition sure didn't help the Redskins in the playoffs either so what's your point? Yeah he won a weak division congrats to him on somehow overcoming the adversity of beating the 8-8 giants and 4-12 Eagles. How did he do it?

By nearly sweeping the division if not for one botched defensive play. Wow, do you feel good degrading other QBs achievements in order to make you feel better about your own? Give credit where credit is due. Unbelievable.

    • Trade a known unknown for a 5th. CB would have to.   Can't believe it would be offered, now.
    • The 10 day isolation is based on incubation periods, timeframes of serious/visible symptoms appearing and ability of the test to catch it at certain times. Not on availability of vaccine or whether the virus is 0.5% deadly or 0.6%. If a player is not vaccinated, it doesn't matter whether the others are. He still carries a much larger chance to get infected and spread it around... in the ~10 days it takes to confirm he has caught it(or not) after exposure. This is especially true for the new variants that might be more contagious. Even if they have no symptoms they can still transfer it to both unvaccinated teammates and a fair bit less likely(but still possible) to vaccinated teammates. That's what the isolation is for. To prevent further spread.   No. It's them being a threat to spread a deadly virus around...  Because the relevant conditions are not that different. The biggest difference this year compared to last year is the availability of a highly effective, safe vaccines. Part of the players just don't want to take it. Which is... fair enough. They can refuse to take it. At the same time the league has the right to implement rules to attempt to reduce the spread among its employees. BTW The rules about safety and the precautions taken are almost identical to last year's ( the isolation, the daily tests, the masks, distancing, etc. (except for forfeiting games and paychecks now)) when everybody was in that group of unvaccinated players.  There is no new burden on unvaccinated players(besides potentially losing paychecks if they don't play due to catching the virus). If anything the NFL has relaxed its rules for majority of its players(the vaccinated ones). IMO this is the right way to look at it. It's a bonus and relief to vaccinated players rather than punishment to the not vaccinated players. You cannot expect the league to just lift its hands and not implement any safety measures when significant part of its players don't want to do the bare minimum to reduce the risks for teammates and employees.
    • Would trade Mack for a 5th without hesitation.  RBs coming off an Achilles don’t have the best track record.  
    • But what trade value would Wilkins have if any?
