  • The NFC West

    People have been calling the NFC West the weakest division in the NFL for years now. They can say what they want, but the fact is that the West has represented the NFC in 4 of the last 10 Super Bowls, more than any other division.

    I don't know about you guys, but I enjoy rooting for other West teams in the playoffs to represent us well. If we can't beat 'em out during the season, I'd rather see them take it all the way than any other team. The only exception for me was rooting for the Steelers vs. Seahawks, only because I personally can't stand Hasselbeck, but I was pulling for them throughout the playoffs up to that point.

    If you find it difficult rooting for our West rivals in the playoffs, remember that one benefit of other West teams making it far in the playoffs (or esp. into the SB) is that their roster and coaching staff is usually raided by other teams afterward, boding well for the Rams in following seasons.

    Go NFC West!

    Interesting stat. I wish that someone would point this out to the pre-game talking trolls and the morons on Sportscenter. The only exception for me in our division would be never pulling for the $%#$%.

      Atlanta was in the West in 1998 when they went to the SB.

        I don't root for them honestly. Although, I'm rooting for the Cards seeming I live in Arizona, I do NOT root for the other teams during the regular season.

        I really hope this division gets stronger. Next year might be it. I don't see the Rams being as poor, the Seahawks coming back healthy and the Cards playing off of this year's success.

          NFC Worst?
          by TekeRam
          Just once, I'd like to pop into the TV when the talking heads start talking about the NFC "Worst" and kindly remind them that over the past 11 seasons, the current teams in the NFC West have gone to the Super Bowl four times, more than any other division in the NFL save the AFC East, who coincidentally only has four participants because of the Patriots' four trips. The NFC West has had 3 different participants, tied with the NFC South.

          If you really want to throw worsts into it, why not go after the AFC West, who hasn't sent a rep to the big game since the 2002 season.

          Welcome to the new and vastly improved NFC West.

          I know only 4 weeks have been played, but i don't think many people believed this division would be the leading the NFL in a few key areas.

          That is the current record for our division, and it is the best winning percentage(.6875) of any division in the NFL. No matter who wins between Chicago and Dallas tonight, we still have the best winning %.

          That is the current home record for the NFC West. Talk about home field advantage. The closest any other divisions come is the NFC North(7-2) and the AFC North(5-2) respectfully.

          The current amount of interceptions the Rams have, which leads the league. Just felt like throwing that in here.

          The current total of Points allowed by the NFC West and lowest for any division. The next closest is the NFC North with 317(Bears yet to play week 4)

          I know there are many other statistics and that statistics are not always the end all in proving how good or bad a team/player is. But it is apparent that in this now "pass happy" league, that defense can still be the dominant force and that home field advantage can be more of an advantage then many think. That has surely been proven thus far in the season by our NFC West.

          GO RAMS!!!!!!!

          , Something to snicker about....Cards, Frisco....and the SEA Buzzards all lost. Sorry just had to laugh at the pathetic showing the the NFC-West. Thank the Almighty the Rams had the dayoff--otherwise it could have been a rout of the conference.

          How about this...

          NFC West: 10-12
          AFC West: 9-14

          Head-to-head: 4-4

          We're not in the worst division any more!
