Is the NFC North that bad?

Postby dream_017 » Thu Nov 17, 2005 10:28 am

Let's compare the total records NFC North vs AFC East:
NFC North: 16-20
AFC East: 14-22

All of the AFC East teams have been outscored by their opponents, while 2 of the 4 NFC North teams have actually outscored their opponents.

I am not saying that the NFC North is a great division or anything but are they as bad as everyone is making them out. Comparing them to the NL West in baseball and such.



Your thoughts....

The NFC North is bad.

Let's look at the top teams in each division:

Chicago's victories: Detroit (4-5), Minnesota (4-5), Baltimore (2-7), Detroit (4-5), New Orleans (2-7), and San Francisco (2-7). They also lost to 3-6 Cleveland.

New England's defeats: Carolina (7-2), San Diego (5-4), Denver (7-2), Indy (9-0).

Games against 6-3 teams or better:
Chicago: 1
New England: 5

I'm comparing two teams in a two team comparison.

I said I was comparing the top two teams in the division. Understand now? It's not rocket science.

Wouldn't it be cool if Samkon Gado runs like heck for the rest of the season and Green Bay ends up winning the division at 9-7? Could happen...

No, but this thread was no doubt an NFC North/AFC East comparison, not a Patriots/Bears comparison and you're putting forth the argument that AFC East > NFC North simply because of the division leaders. That'd be like me saying that the Big XII > Big 10 because Texas > Penn St.

All of the AFC East teams have been outscored by their opponents, while 2 of the 4 NFC North teams have actually outscored their opponents.


One of those teams that outscored their opponents is the 2-7 Packers who beat the Aints 52-3 and have lost every other game before ATL. The other is Chicag, and no one is doubting they have a great D, they just don't have any O.

I agree though, that the Bills/Phins/Jets are in the same league as the Vikes/Lions/Packers. Both divisions are bad. Any team in the NFC E or AFC W is just as good or better than Chicago and NE.

What about the NFC West - wouldnt they qualify to be in the NFC North/AFC East range - or does the presence of SEA raise the division?
