>ITT: name a more embarrassing division in the NFL
pro tip: you can't
Historically, the NFC East is the strongest division in the NFL. But the unrelenting and abject failure of the Cowboys for the past 25 years has cast the entire division as a shit hole. Dallas was so successful for so long that the other teams in the division had to work full time just to finish second. During the Cowboys dominant years, the second, or even third place team in the division, would have won most every other division in the NFL. Now, the entire division is a dumpster fire with all the teams able to compete for the division title with fucking terrible teams. Terrible ownership is rampant in the NFC East and less than stellar coaching has plagued the entire division for years. Without a dominant Dallas, the entire division went to hell because they could.
The Giants were able to grab a couple of SB's as the under dog but they haven't been dominant in a very long time. The Redskins haven't been for relevant even longer than the Cowboys and the Eagles have never really been relevant.
History may say the NFC East is a power division. But that isn't the current reality. And it hasn't been for a very long time.
AFC east (BARELY)
This is for the collective performance of the teams over the last few years. Remember when everyone praised the AFC north last year because they all had good records when in reality it was because they played the worst 2 divisions in the NFL. This year is the opposite and they played the best 2 divisions in football and it made them look worse. Next year the AFC north will be above average again because they have pretty easy interdivision games
We had two teams go to the playoffs both with double digit records. All while having the toughest schedules in the league.
Hell give they both had QB injuries as well stopping them from adding a couple more W's.
I'd say we looked pretty damn good.
The Steelers and Bengals both played pretty well to their potential in the reg season, but the two villages of Cleveland and Baltimore dragged the division down this year, in the same way that the Bills, Dolphins, and Jets drag down the AFC east. Also comparing to last year when the AFC north had both of the wild card spots and even the fucking Browns went 7-9, this year was worse.
I see the tables have turned
I like the rivalry and hate going on with the Stoolers and Bungles, but the NFL are killing it wit that ref ball
shit is becoming PG-13 now.
Ravens will be back 2-3 years
Browns will continue to be the Browns for decades to come
>Division that had 3 TEAMS in the playoff last year.
When the pats, hawks and the colts are handed free playoff shots every year.
Fuck out of here
How pathetic does Philly feel knowing they share a division with such storied franchises while never having won one themselves?
Bengals and Steelers did good this season, the hell are you talking about. You can't really blame the Ravens after losing to injury their starting QB, SS, OLB (and leader), RB, WR and their first round pick, not to mention the OL were constantly injured.
The NFL should put a mercy rule into effect regarding Super Bowls.
If a franchise goes 30 years without an Owl, it gets liquidated or sent to Canada.
Seriously, name a single team that hasn't won in the last 30 years that deserves to exist.
Hey, Browns fan here. I enjoy watch niggers nig-out on TV.
And Joe Thomas is a pretty cool guy.
