NFC East is a joke

Recommended Posts

Cowboys under 500 lead division

Redskins 3-9 could still make playoffs 

 

Do you realize how insane that is?

Lol it's hilarious. And I'll bet an 8-8 team from the NFC east will host a 13-3 WILD card team :woah:

The fact that the NFL realigned at one time and the Cowboys stayed in the NFC east is also hilarious.  They should be in the NFC South playing the Saints twice a year .

Remember the 2008 8-8 Chargers beating the 12-4 Colts at home?

 

Remember, the 7-9 Seahawks with Lynch beating the 2010 Saints in the wild card game at home?

 

I do think there should be a rule for .500 and sub .500 division leaders. If you are not at least 9-7 while winning the division, there should be re-seeding.

Not as hilarious as the Colts being in the AFC south. 

It should have been Miami that moved to the AFC south.

Really? 80% of Indiana residents originated in KY, TN and AL.

Indiana was part of the union and contributed to the war effort in preventing the south from succeeding

That is true but huge waves of southern people have relocated to Indiana after the war, especially after the 2nd world war. 

Jobs were the #1 reason. 

I for one moved to Indiana to find work from TN after Vietnam.

I’m from Mississippi but I don’t think of the Midwest when I think of Yankees. I thinks it’s funny you said succeeded when you meant seceded. Kinda changes the meaning. Haha

I would do away with divisions. I have said this for probably 10 years now. I would just take the 6 best teams from each conference and keep the same playoff seeding's we have now. I said that after the Chargers got HFA over us in 2008 being 8-8 and we were 12-4.

So off the geography and back to football at years end I wonder what the W-L columns will look like for this division. Don't forget two hall of fame coaches were a part of the Cowboys once.

As an owner of a team I wouldn't even hang Division Championship banners. I think making the AFC Championship Game is 100 times better than winning your division. That is why I had no problem hanging a 2014 banner for AFC Finalist runner-up. I can't believe people had a problem with that lmao . I guess to some winning the division and then getting beat in the Wildcard Round or Divisional Round is better than making the AFC Title Game. I would rather make the Final 4 by a mile.

So?    It happens every so often.   Most years the NFC East is one of the top divisions.   The NFL is really, really hard.    A bad year every once in a while isn’t a big deal.   
 

Most people haven’t been very complimentary over the AFC South or the AFC East over the years.    Life goes on...

Win your division and you host a playoff game.  I have no issue with it.

Doesn't the NBA seed by record and not division/wild card? I think in 2012, the Celtics, who won their division, were a lower seeded team against Atlanta, who had a better record but didn't win their division.

Yes but the division winner however is guaranteed a playoff spot, I think.

    • Not sure what you have seen during college or post college to determine that one Qb is a game manager and another other is not.  The physicality prism?     All the Qb can do is to see where to throw the ball, then throw it there accurately. The WRs have to go unscripted too, and find an open spot, or a spot that he can be lead to.      After 5 seconds from the snap of the ball, whether the Qb makes that decision and throws the ball from the pocket or by running to the right hash mark doesn't matter, other than being on the right hash mark provides half as many opportunities to see where to throw the ball and throw it there accurately.   If unscripted means that my $125 mil Qb is carrying the team by making 25 yard scrambles for TDs, and is treated as a runner, I don't want that.  Its pretty to watch and nice to have, but its not really what the Qb position is about, IMO.
    • I believe Reich has shown that he adjusts his offense to his QBs style, Therefore it's most important to get the best QB we can draft, instead of getting the best fit for a certain system   To me Fromm is like Gordon who has a lot to prove (if not more because he had a way more talented team). I keep hearing how smart he is but, Fitzpatrick is one of the smartest QBs to play the game and I wouldn't want him on our team, If we drafted him though I wouldn't trade back into the 1st for him because that would mean at least 3-4 QBs were taken and we could get him with one of our second rnd picks.          
    • The scrambling ability is not why I don’t want Fromm. I want a guy that can put a team on his shoulders when things aren’t going right.  A game manager is not going to give us a team that can compete with Mahomes the next decade. The ability to make plays unscripted though is something that is important in the NFL today with players getting faster. Having a QB that can go off script when a play breaks down is huge.
    • Jones is who I want...even if it's a franchise and trade.   As for DEs...I would look at Clowney. Would step right in and replace Sheard.
    • I think most want a QB who doesn't have to carry the team just to be competitive.    Reich had both the scrambler, Wentz, and the statue, Foles, and won with both.  Don't get fooled into adopting the scrambling trendiness as being something essential.   Its merely about how long a QB holds the ball to allow something to develop.  Some leave the pocket. Others stay there until the last second.  Running to one side of the field normally cuts your vision of the field in half, limiting the options.  We have the pocket to give any QB time to stand there and extend the play.  Most teams don't.   I'm intrigued by Eason.  I like his height.  Its tough to substitute that.  Obviously Herbert too.
