The NFC South is overrated tripe. Don't mistake one of the most competitive divisions in football with one of the best divisions in football, there's a distinguishable difference.
What is your rationale for saying that? What other NFC division comes close? Last time I checked, since the realignment, the NFC South has had all four teams make the NFCCG. In fact, every NFCCG since '02 has had an NFC South team in the game. The only NFC Super Bowl win this decade was from the NFC South.
i'm amazed that people think the afc north is that good. did the bengals really improve that much in the offseason? did pittsburgh? i don't think you could've made the argument they were the best division last year and i don't think you'll be able to make it after this season.
The AFC north doesn't have a top team in the AFC but it is one of the more competitive division because teams like the Steelers, Ravens, and Bengals all have tons of talent and the ability to win the division. Even the Browns look to be better this year and if that happens there realling isn't going to be a bottom feeder of this division
The West is good but you have Oakland which should be bad again under a rookie QB and KC which should be worse than last year aswell. Both Denver and SD should get better with their QBs getting more experience and Denver has added some talent aswell.
The East has a ton of question marks with the rebuilding Bills and the chaos in Miami. Jets look better but still now great.
South has the Colts which are always great with Peyton. The Jaguars have some major issues at QB and other places that they need to shore up. The Titans took some losses in FA again and didn't really add much. Young should be better this year though and he got them alot of wins. The Texans are still gonna have problems with the line so Schaub won't be any better than Carr.
There is no really dominant divison. The west has two teams that can compete for HFA but the North has 4 teams all capable of putting together a great season and winning the division. That why I think they are the 'best division'.
Each and every team in the NFC south is horribly flawed because the deficiencies and inconsistencies they have extend to leadership on the teams, which is why they won't do anything in the playoffs barring the NFC continuing as poor as it has been in recent years - thereby why the Falcons, Panthers, and Saints reached the NFCCG and then promptly bounced like the frauds they were. In the Panthers and Bucs case, they also have subpar coaching that only hurts them further (hence why the hire of Petrino and the assistants he's brought in will help the Falcons get back on top of the division within two years, I think).
The NFC East has undergone growing pains, but in terms of quality of play, I'd gladly take them hand over foot over the NFC South in 2007. They have stronger offenses and stronger defenses imo. The Giants are the 4th best team in the East with horrible coaching, but they are still leagues ahead of the Bucs who are the 4th best team in the South with horrible coaching.
