In fact, most of the better teams are in the NFC now.
If we're talking strictly AFC v. NFC I'd say that was true of 07' and now of 08'. While the AFC seems to have 2-5 power house teams at the top (your typical San Diego / Indianapolis / New England / Pittsburgh etc.) the bottom tier of the AFC has shown just how uncompetitive it is.
Meanwhile, most of the NFC has been competitive for the last 2 years or so, even the guys on the bottom.
