Are you kidding?


I have to admit, when I was first asked whether the NFC East is now the worst division in football, I thought it was a typo.

Am I missing something? The NFC East has the second best combined division record, only to the AFC South. They also have three of the best six teams in the NFC.

The question seemed even more perplexing since the NFL has had a clear-cut, by far the worst division in the NFC West. The NFC West is coming off a 2008 campaign, where their division winner went 9-7. In fact, the winner of the NFC West hasn't won more than 10 games since 2005. This year, 7-9 would probably do the job to win that division.

To bury this argument, the NFC West has been outscored by their opponents by a jarring 143 points!

The NFC East (one of the strongest divisions in the entire league) has no business being in this discussion.
