Who is the most dangerous NFC team heading into the playoffs?

Jumping to conclusions

It's far too early to accurately asses the quality of play and the quality of teams in the NFL this season. Defensive struggles may not appeal to everyone, but it remains a formula for success.

Overrated is an understatement

The perennially overrated Cowboys will miss the playoffs as the perfect dream season scenario unfolds for the Redskins.

By Dr. Mark Adickes | September 15, 2010; 11:59 PM ET | Comments (2)

Popular for a reason

As a successful franchise, the Cowboys deserve praise, no matter how many times "Cowboy haters" say differently, but that success can come back to bite them.

By Chris Richardson | September 14, 2010; 04:27 PM ET | Comments (3)

No matter their record, Cowboys remain relevant

The Dallas Cowboys may be down at the moment, but their trophy case proves they are far from the most overrated team in NFL history.

Love 'em or hate 'em, it's all about Big D

Whether you love them or hate them, everyone has something to say about the Dallas Cowboys, giving them nationally televised games and making their players household names no matter how well the team plays from year to year.

Worldwide brand

Despite underachievement on the field in recent years, the Dallas Cowboys have mastered the art of promoting their product off it and remain at the forefront of the national consciousness.

Perception and expectations

When performance doesn't meet perception, fans and the media are responsible for teams like the Dallas Cowboys becoming overrated.

By Anthony Stalter | September 14, 2010; 09:21 AM ET | Comments (0)

NFC East is anyone's ballgame

Too much money spent on receivers at the expense of a serviceable offensive line is just one of the many problems facing the Dallas Cowboys which opens up the division for the Redskins, Giants and Eagles.

By Doug Farrar | September 14, 2010; 02:45 AM ET | Comments (0)

Romo is Cowboys' achilles heel

As long as Tony Romo is at the helm for the Dallas Cowboys, "America's Team" will continue to fail to live up to lofty preseason expectations.

Hail Leon Lett

The comedy of errors the Cowboys committed in their season-opening loss to the Redskins should have Wade Phillips readying his resume once again.

Still No. 1

One week into the season, the landscape of the NFC East may have changed, but the Dallas Cowboys still belong atop the heap...for now at least.

Giants' defense the key

A defensive makeover will propel the 2007 Super Bowl champion New York Giants back into the postseason, where they have a great shot to make another deep run.

Super Meadowlands

New York is the perfect site to host the Super Bowl and the biggest week-long party in all of American professional sports.

By Edward Valentine | May 25, 2010; 12:01 AM ET | Comments (3)

Not your average Super Bowl

Playing a Super Bowl in New York could change the style of play on the field, but it won't make the dream of hosting the NFL's biggest game any closer to reality for the rest of the league's cold-weather teams.

By Brandon Benson | May 25, 2010; 12:01 AM ET | Comments (3)

Embrace the elements

Every city, regardless of climate, should have the opportunity to host the Super Bowl and experience the pinnacle of the NFL experience.

By Anthony Stalter | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

Always warm on the couch

Cold weather Super Bowls would enhance the experience of the vast majority of NFL fans -- those who watch the game from the climate-controlled comforts of their own homes.

By Michael Kun | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

Follow the money

The promise of a Super Bowl helps convince local municipalities to open up their wallets to help pay for new stadiums, regardless of climate.

By Jason Brewer | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

A flip of the coin

If the NFL begins to play Super Bowl games at outdoor stadiums in cold-weather climates, it will lead to the thought that championship games can be played anywhere and forever alter the league's grandest spectacle.

By Dave Goldberg | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

Costs of the cold

Nostalgia aside, while playing multiple Super Bowls in cold weather cities would provide a boost to local economies, it would also test the financial abilities of those markets to host such a massive event.

By Josh Kirkendall | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

Piling on layers

While hosting Super Bowls in cold climates may weed out some of the corporate presence at the NFL championship game and allow more average fans to attend, the product on the field could cost the league casual fans who prefer high-scoring affairs to defensive struggles.

By Adam Tracey | May 25, 2010; 12:00 AM ET | Comments (0)

Don't Expect It Beyond New York

If New Meadowlands Stadium hosts a Super Bowl, it will be a reward for the New York Giants and Jets spending so much money on a new stadium, but that won't necessarily lead to more cold weather championship games.

Bubble's already burst

The playoff picture appears to be pretty well set, but I'm wrong more often than I'm right. So, look for change.

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

By Shawn Zobel | November 23, 2009; 05:17 PM ET | Comments (0)

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.

By Dan Levy | November 23, 2009; 02:59 PM ET | Comments (0)

Eastern parity, western futility

The NFC East, but looking broader, this division isn't so much bad as it is very evenly matched.

By Rob Rang | November 23, 2009; 12:55 PM ET | Comments (2)

Eastern let down

Unrealistic expectations have doomed one of the best divisions in the NFL to disappointment, almost regardless of the outcome of the season.

By Sean McCann | November 23, 2009; 12:34 PM ET | Comments (0)

NFC West worse

The worst division in football this year is the same one it's been for several years. The NFC West.

By Jason Brewer | November 23, 2009; 11:55 AM ET | Comments (1)

Are you kidding?

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

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.

By Dave Goldberg | November 23, 2009; 06:40 AM ET | Comments (1)

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.

By Edward Valentine | November 23, 2009; 06:27 AM ET | Comments (1)

Cowboys fans suck

My hatred of the Cowboys is less about the team and more about having to deal with the obnoxious fan base.

Great QBs, not a rivalry

After Brady and Manning decline and then retire this so-called rivalry will fade and fizzle.

Don't count on Cards

The only team currently leading their division played in last season's Super Bowl and, coincidentally, is the only team that won't play for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

By Jamie De Giorgio | November 4, 2009; 03:14 PM ET | Comments (0)

No one safe but Saints, Colts, Vikes

The two divisional leaders I have the least faith in at this point are in the West -- NFC West's Arizona and AFC West's Denver.

The reason for the wide disparity in winning teams and losing ones comes down to one thing: quarterback play.

Nearly half a century of NFL achievement may all fall by the wayside if players get locked out after the 2010 season.

Prettier Than Losing

Take the "it's degrading to women" and "it's inappropriate for children" arguments and shove it.

By Sarah Schorno | September 3, 2009; 12:30 PM ET | Comments (14)

Addressing the Problem, Not the Solution

Assuming that Roger Goodell's increased discipline changes the way players act is like saying that the rooster crowing changes the way the sun comes up.

By Doug Farrar | August 21, 2009; 01:15 PM ET | Comments (0)

Hammer Time!

With off field drama and unpredictable legal consequences forcing Goodell's hand, he's playing his cards right.

Not Strict Enough

Until a standard list of punishments for crimes exists, players won't see the policy as a detriment.

Eli So Not Worth It

The Giants would have renewed his contract in the spring if not now, they could have saved themselves a few dollars by waiting.

By Sarah Schorno | August 6, 2009; 05:31 PM ET | Comments (1)

Giants Could Have Done Worse

The Giants have decided that, in these uncertain times, Eli is their top-half guy. They could do worse.

By Sean McCann | August 6, 2009; 03:32 PM ET | Comments (0)

Giants Had to Overpay

There's no way, under any circumstance, by any stretch of the imagination that Eli should be the highest paid player in the NFL, the highest paid at his position, or even the highest paid at his own family reunion.

By Anthony Stalter | August 6, 2009; 01:58 PM ET | Comments (17)

Well Deserved Pay Raise

Eli Manning is as valuable to the Giants organization as his brother is to the Colts. He deserves every bit of the $35M guaranteed money the Giants will pay him.

By Roman Oben | August 6, 2009; 11:26 AM ET | Comments (3)

Capping Eli's Mega Deal

It's definitely a lucrative deal, but it may not necessarily be the market setting contract that it's being made out to be.

Eli: Between Average and Elite

Is he worth more than Tom Brady or his own brother? Absolutely not, but that isn't the realistic question. Eli Manning simply got what the market will bear.

Worth Super Money

Eli is a great quarterback who has proven he is capable of performing in the clutch on the biggest stage.

Eli's Giant Pay Day

Eli is the right quarterback for the New York Giants for the next seven years. That makes me happy, regardless of his paycheck.

Eli Over Burdened

If he remains on the precipice of greatness, where he currently resides, all he'll be is yet another big ticket item that didn't nearly deliver up to what was expected of him.

His Age May Cost Him More Than His Stupidity
