NFC East futility

Is the NFC East now the worst division in football?

Still competetitive

There's no doubt in my mind that the AFC West, AFC East, and NFC West are all worse than the NFC East

Worst? Hardly

While the teams haven't been playing well as of late, the numbers clearly indicate the NFC East is one of the best.

Not even close

My first reaction when this question was posed to me was "Are you kidding?'' It's also my second, third and fourth reaction.

Middling, not worst

The NFC East has hardly been the beast prognosticators thought it might be. But, no way is it the worst division in football.

Nearly the worst

The NFC East is so bad that if we had a competition for the worst division in football it would come in second.
