Well its tied for the worst but it cant hold the title by itself. At an overall record of 12-20 they have the exact same record as the AFC East which includes the defending chapmpion Patriots. I understand that the Pats most likely could beat any team in our division, however it I just dont understand why our division can take so much heat, and they get completley left out. Besides its not our fault we have a 1-7 team..... :razz:

I also noticed that...and hope that by the end of the season that our division is better...with the Vikings winning it, of course! And yeah, it's not our fault that we have the Packers...but I am loving it just the same!!!

They don't want to mention it because the Patriots are the Super Bowl champs but that is all the more reason to hold them to a higher mention then the NFC North they are supposed to be this grat team with a system that can make up for any injury well they can't let's hear about that fact some more.

well hopefully the rest of the division could stay weak, we just need to figure out our teams problems.

I understand we must figure out our own problems, i just thought it was an interesting statistic and that some might be interested

I think that the vikings have a great chance of winning the division and that Brad may turn things around. If you look at what the bears, lions, and packers are doing, anything is possible. We need a huge spark and beating the giants would be just that!!!

If we win this week I can gaurentee we win the division.. The Giants are a huge test for Brad and the rest of the team.. I think we can actually do it as long as we don't let the last few meetings affect us

Don't care about the other 3 teams in our division, just the one from Minnesota.

Unfair to rate at this point. Sure both divisions have their injuries and probs at quarterback. In my opinion, NFC North has more talent and losing more with it, mainly the Lions, and Vikings. But one thing is for sure, neither is impressing me at this point.

brad does really well against the giants. i hope that continues plus some. and i hope our D can cause some very timely turnovers and get get good field position. we will win with defense this week. our D got to bring their A+ game to give brad the opertunity to get some TD's.

great post, I've been complaining about this to my friends for weeks. How can they rip our division apart when the AFC east is just as bad if not worse.

They also have played the toughest schedule.

Parity!!!!!!! It was a good run, but sooner or later guys get complacent, injuries mount and some talent is lost along with leadership.

Last year, they had a lot of change, they could have more changes this year in Patville.

There are a few weak divisions in football. The NFC North and West are both pretty week and the AFC East and South is not that solid. I think all of these are fairly similar except the top end of the AFCs are the Pats and Colts and the top end of the NFCs are the Bears and Seahawks. Clearly the Bears are the worst of those four, but the bottom ends are all sorry ... the Jets and Dolphins, the Lions and Packers, the Cardinals and 49ers and the Titans and Texans. I mean I think that the Lions and Packers is better than the NFC West bottom and the AFC South bottom.

New England is in first place in the east, and they're at 4-4. The North isn't as bad as everyone said it was.

The NFC North isn't as good as we would like it to be either.

The NFC North was trompled buy the Bengals and Steelers in the AFC North.

As far as the Bengals, they are borderline. They have won games and for that I give them credit, but they remind me of the opportunistic team we had a few years back. We stopped getting turnovers about week 9 or 10 and we found out we were not all that. The plus turnover margin really helps their offense play with a lead and be confident.

Plus the bears still have to face the panthers, bucs, steelers, hopefully the pack will sweep them and get back to that tradition unlike last year when they split with them and then of course our VIKES
