      I don't know if I would go that far but if they had a QB I could see playoffs, their D, running game and SP teams are all playing great.

        Dont question Morton, he knows the future. So we can book either the ravens steelers or chargers in the super bowl. Again, isnt it great when people post predictions as fact?

          Have you seen him play? Eli's been quite beastly and if it weren't for 4 passes that bounced off of his receiver's hands he'd be doing absolutely superbly.

            Yes I have. And I'm sure Eli is the only QB who has had interceptions that weren't his fault.

            He's the same guy he's always been. He's not amazing (or not "chuckin' it really well" as the OP said. He's just Eli.

              What stands out is how flawed all of these teams really are. Especially in the NFC East and AFC South. I think in the AFC it will come down to if New York can sustain its level of play (Mark Sanchez I'm looking at you!) and which of Pittsburgh and Baltimore survives. The NFC is even more wide open: you have to like New York and Atlanta right now.

                Good one! Nobody bandwagons the Raiders!

                Just look at this INSANE post game celebration at the coliseum after the first Oakland victory against S.D. in seven years!

                  This has been the Parity league for years now.

                  The surprising season was last year when there was no parity...

                    That's what happens when the top teams stay healthy.

                        Yardage seems to be easier to come by through the air this year... However that may be because the running game is a shell of its former self and teams are just airing it out.

                          Teams are playing more aggressively. It might not be something that is easy to see in the stats per se, but you can see it with almost every game.

                          Even defensive battles these days have their fair share of offensive fireworks. That Steelers v Ravens game was the perfect example - big plays on offense and defense.

                          It isn't just week to week consistency that is breaking down in the NFL, it's play to play consistency as well. A defense will force 2 sacks in a row and then give up a 30 yard pass seemingly much more regularly now. As stated, the league is starting to play more aggressively, bit by bit. Coaches* are straying from conservative approaches in an attempt to control a game and are instead starting to focus entirely on how they can stike next, and games regularly end up becomming a battle of who can strike first and last.

                            The NFL now comes in graph form to highlight the parity of 2010.

                            Read it clockwise. Atlanta beat Tampa 27-21, Tampa beat Cleveland 17-14 and so on until the Steelers complete the full circle with their 15-9 win over the Falcons from Week 1.

                              I wonder how many times this has happened? Amazed it only took until Week 11 as well.

                                **** parity. It's bad for the NFL because now I feel like any given moment the game can swing for no ******* reason on a stupid play or series of plays.

                                I was watching a team dominate for 3 quarters and all of the sudden can't do anything right. They lose or almost lose every time.

                                Very very few scores end up lopsided. You can almost presume they will come back at the end now.
