Ask any coach which division their more afraid of. The answer is obvious- NFC North.

Minnesota= Their win last week was a fluke. They managed 6 yards of toal offense in the first half and got half of their passing yards on their last drive. Also, their defense is in shambles and have horrible coaching.

Green BAy= Another horrible team. I wouldnt be afraid of them at all. They have no offensive line, an unproven running back who wasnt on a team when the season started, and a defense that is just flat ut bad.

Detroit- I wouldnt be afraid of this team. They are an overall decent team with middle of the pack offenses and defenses and solid coaching. If they just play ta their talent level, this team could be scary. But Harrington doesnt fit this coaching system and their offense has been underacheiving.

Chicago- the nly team id be somewhat afraid of. Their d is tremendous so the job is on the offense to produce. However, it has not happened and it doesnt look like the offense will bust out.

Now AFC East

Patriots- very afraid of this team. They have a top 3 qb in brady,a solid running game and an underacheiving d which could be great if they all come together. Their coaching is fabulous, and the testament to this is the hype around their game with the colts.

Bills- another solid team. They are great against the pass and finally showed something on offense last week. They have great wrs and rb's it is just on qb to preform.

Jets- they are bad due to injury. However, they almost beat the chargers and already beat tampa. They still have Vilma, Abraham , and Law on d and if heaslthya re a top 5 team.

dolphins- At ome this team is solid and not an easy matchup. Saban is a good coach and they got a running game with talented wide recievers but hteir qb sucks. Im not afraid of this team.

Those are what most coaches would say about matchups with these teams.

Another factor is injuries. Looka t hte major injuries an dull c why when everyone is healthy nfc north is mich worse.

Patriots- Teddy Bruschi, ROdney Harrison, Corey Dillon ( missing some more defensive players)
Jets- CHad Pennigton, Kevin Mawae, Wayne Chrebet
Bills- Takeo Spikes
Dolphins- williams missed time

Bears- grossman, jones
Lions- Garcia, Roy Williams, Carlos rogers
Green Bay- Ahman Green, Najeh Davenport, Javon Walker
Minnesota- Daunte CUlpepper, Nate Burleson


Which side looks much better to u

The winner is then decided by popular vote by the people of Uruguay so it will be impartial.


C'mon now. You can't be serious.

We all know the people of Uruguay love Brett Favre. And that's just not fair.


The people of Uruguay are way too upset right now after my Aussies beat them out for a place in next year's soccer World Cup. Any vote they cast right now would by unfairly affected by suicidal tendencies.

BTW - it is too difficult to compare shades of cr@p. Both divisions are terrible for different reasons, but terrible all the same.

Spot on. Some of the arguments put forth in this thread make some people out to be a, "giant" homer.

You're right. The NFC North is crap. The AFC East is crap.

Everything else is just homer cheering, kind of like my post earlier in this thread. ;-D
