Other then Seattle, I think all of the AFC teams including Jacksonville are better then the NFC teams. Man the NFC is weak by comparison this year.
 
Must be lots of Steelers fan voting.Even though they're probably playing their best football of the year right now, their chances aren't even close to that good.

Yeah, I know! Three 11-5 division champs, an 11-5 wild card, and a 10-6 wild card. Not to mention a team that could have finished 10-6 (Dallas) had they not mailed it in after getting eliminated. Man, is the NFC horrible!Must be the quality of competition in the AFC! I mean, the Patriots get Buffalo and the Jets twice. That's four hard-fought victories right there. And Jacksonville played those rough n tough Houston Texans twice and the feisty Tennessee Titans twice. They also got a matchup vs. San Francisco at home and managed a hard-fought 10-9 victory against that dynasty!

And it's a good thing the poor NFC teams didn't play the AFC teams that much. Imagine if those pathetic Giants played that Denver offense. Oh wait, you mean they did already?

Ah, the ignorance would be bliss if it wasn't so f'n infuriating! :wall: :thumbdown:

Denver was 3-1 vs. the NFC East, with the only loss being a one-point squeaker to the Giants. I will take a 3-1 record and a one-point road loss against the best division in the NFC any day of the week. I do think the NFC isn't as inept as it was last year, but you cannot seriously be suggesting that the NFC is as good as the AFC.

It's not going to be the cakewalk everybody thinks it will be either. Seattle, Chicago, or Carolina will be tough to beat. Hell, even Jesus' favorite team, the Patriots, have struggled in the last two Super Bowls against their inferior NFC counterparts.

Who said it is going to be a cakewalk? One team blowing out another does not equate to their conference being vastly superior. Look at it this way..compare the seeds in each conference. If they played on a neutral field, who would win?

1 seeds: Indy vs. Seattle - Colts win.

2 seeds: Denver vs. Chicago - Broncos win.

3 seeds: Cincinnati vs. TB - Right now, I would say TB wins.

4 seeds: NE vs. NY Giants - NE wins.

5 seeds: Jax vs. Carolina - Carolina wins.

6 seeds: Pitt vs. Was - Steelers win.

That is 4-2 in favor of the AFC. Factor in that the best non-playoff teams are in the AFC (KC, Miami and SD) and the AFC clearly appears to be the better conference.

Feel free to disagree. :)

I wouldn't be so sure about that Indy pick. They have as much to prove because of their shortcomings as the Seahawks do. Indy won't get past the Patriots if Cincy wins so I fail to see how the Colts are a sure thing against Seattle who at least gave the Pats a battle in Foxborough last season.

And the irony in that is that Jacksonville tore Seattle a new ####### in Week 1.... Seattle is so overrated it makes me sick. They are deadlocked even with all the other wildcard-calibur teams that are a year early for the playoffs. There are only a few good teams in the NFL this year, but somebody has to win.

With the exception of the Panthers and maybe the Redskins, any of the NFC representatives will lose by at least 2 scores.

Next year that balance of power will begin to shift back to the NFC, because the Bucs, Bears, Giants and Redskins are all pretty much 2nd year teams on 3 year rebuilding plans.

What does last year have to do with it? The Seahawks lost three times to the 9-9 Rams last year, so I am not sure you want to be bringing up what Seattle did last year. Besides, Indy is a lot more proven and battle-tested than Seattle is. The Colts have at least won three playoff games the last two postseasons. The last time Seattle won a playoff game, I think Lincoln was president. :P

I agree that Seattle is overrated, but having home field combined with the NFC not really have any complete team will likely result in them making the Super Bowl. Still, they had a pretty easy schedule and got beat by some of the good teams they faced. Jacksonville and Washington both beat them and the Giants outplayed them and only lost because of their idiot kicker. It won't surprise me if Seattle makes the Super Bowl, but it also won't surprise me if they lose their first game.

You must not have seen that game. That loss was due to total exhaustion in sweltering heat. The Hawks layed down by the end of the first half because they weren't in stride to handle that yet. Played again now the Hawks walk all over them. As far as deadlocked with wild card teams, you're obviously way off again. This trailed Indy barely all year, an 11 game win streak, and the only losses are road games vs 2 other playoff teams. They beat quality and crappy teams and racked up the most potent offense. And the Defense jumped from near bottom to near top, leads the league in sacks. Plus we get 5 starters back, including our best WR who we worked with all year. Walter Jones ring a bell?

I know it's fashionable to dis on the Seahawks but at least make a plausible argument. And as for the future, with nearly all the main cogs in this record setting offense signed for multiple years and a D that's mostly under 4 years experience with a good look at a stifling future D.

That AFC sure is scary. I'm more worried about getting past the Bears than losing to any of the AFC teams later on...

 
Just like this years fantasy draft... NYG still WAY underrated. How teams can say they shutout a playoff team during the regular season? Strahan and Osi will be a force to be reckoned with.10+ Win teams sorted by SOS

The problem is Philly is not there this year and have been replaced with Seattle as the only team with a slight chance to beat whoever comes out of the AFC this year. Don't get your panties in a bunch. The Giants are a good team but they are still one year away from being considered as good as the playoff teams out of the AFC this year.

Other then Seattle and leaving out Jacksonville because they are borderline you can't possibly think that any of the teams from the NFC would be favoured if they were to meet any of the AFC teams in week one in the playoffs, therefore the AFC is so much stronger this year it is not even funny :

NFC:

Washington Redskins

New York Giants

Chicago Bears

Carolina Panthers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

AFC:

Pittsburgh Steelers

Indianapolis Colts

New England Patriots

Denver Broncos

Cincinnati Bengals
