I agree with the whole parity concept. Good for the game. But you lost me here. I don't want to make this into yet another, "How good is Eli? Where does he rank?" thread, but "chuckin' it really well" is a wee bit much.
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.

Is Shaun Hill a top 10 QB? Definitely not. Is he a top 20 one? Almost certainly.
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.
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.
