    When the 4th place team in the NFC West would crush them 9 out of 10.

    4 team divisions is too small.

    The odds are too high that all 4 teams can suck and we are witnessing that now

    Can't we wait until -- oh, I don't know, maybe SIX OR SEVEN games into the season --
    before we start making silly assumptions?

    This is why Monday NFL articles are referred to as "overreactions."

    I got no dog in this fight, but the NFC East always seems like the worst NFC division, just from my recollection. They rarely have a team that wins 12/13 games.

    No. 8: NFC East

    Overall Record: 24-40
    Winning Percentage: .375
    Out-of-Conference Record: 5-11
    Average SOS: .477
    Overall Division Strength (WP x SOS): .178

    https://www.insidehook.com/article/s...ns-2019-season

    It's not really an overreaction when it's carrying over from last year, is it? The NFC East was clearly the worst division in the NFL last year.

    negative 49 point differential 2 weeks into the season is something special.

    What a cool idea you got .
    He let’s not bet on the games till after the games are over instead of making silly predictions with our money half the time .

    This is a sports betting forum .

    Sports betting is about speculation and making predictions.

    If that sort of thing is not your thing go find a history forum or something like that .

    I will go ahead and not wait till week 7 to start this thread .


    Name one team in the NFC West that if they played in the NFC least would not be at least -150 to win the Least .

    For many years the NFC East was the beast
    Two if not three very good/great teams in 80s and 90s
    Comes and goes

    If you're looking for Super Bowl futility, it's the NFC North where only the Packers have (twice) won a SB in past 30 years

    All fine and dandy. But does nothing in terms of forming an argument for or against the current NFC East.

    I mean the NFC East isn't good because a mediocre 9-7 Giants team that likely never makes the playoffs in another division gets hot in the playoffs and wins the super bowl. That's the point... they never make the playoffs at all if they were in a better division. Or face a harder road in the playoffs and then don't make it as far.

    I think both those teams would win the NFC Least .

    I mean the Rams are already 2-0 against the supposed 2 best teams in the NFC Least .

    And Arizona?

    They already 1-0 against the least and beat the NFC champs already

    Dallas or Philly will be like 8-8 and win the division. Not incredibly uncommon for a .500 type team to finish 8-8 or 9-7 and win a bad division. Everyone remembers Seattle being 7-9 that one year and hosting the Saints in the 1st round. And actually winning. I think a few years ago Carolina won their division going 7-9 as well.

    I'm in agreement the seeding needs to change though. An 8-8 team should not get HFA over an 11-5 Wildcard team just because they won their crappy division.
