  • NFC Worst?

    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.
    I believe!:ram:

    And lets look at how many time NFC West teams have been to the SB. Rams 3 times, Niners 5 times, Cardinals 1 time, Seattle 1 time. That is 10 trips to the Superbowl. So out of 44 Superbowls played the NFC West has represented the NFC nearly 25% of the time.

      Tuned into ESPN a bit today, they seem to have been bashing the west in light of the Niners/Cards game. Kornheiser (I believe) said a team should not get into the playoffs with an 8-8 record. Personally, I can not stand Kornheiser. While the teams may not be great in the nfc west, I still think each and every division deserves to have their leader in the playoffs.

        Yeah, accidentally had it on PTI today, immediately turned it when they started talking about the NFC West. Nothing worse than a Cub fan and a senile old mad. (one of my good friends is a Cubs fan, just don't like hearing them talk about sports is all )

          Well I still remember a time when the Rams were 11 and 5, with a better record than ALL the division winners in the AFC, and couldn't even get into the play offs as a wildcard... But you wont hear those same so called experts reminisce about that, will you?

            If Kornheiser knew anything about the NFL he would still be on the Monday Night Team.

              NFC West No Longer Worst Division!
              by AvengerRam_old
              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!

              The NFC West
              by evil disco man
              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!

              Are the Rams really the best team in the NFC West?

              THE WATERCOOLER: Are the Rams really the best team in the NFC West?

              JIM THOMAS:

              Not ready to say that. For starters, the Rams are going to have to start picking up a win or two on the road. And after so many losses from 2007 through 2009, I simply have to see more. OK, the Rams have won two in a row. But so did Jim Haslett in October of 2008. But there's no doubt this looks like a different Rams team than we've seen in recent years and the NFC West certainly looks like it's there for the taking.

              BRYAN BURWELL:

              The season is only four games old, so it's dangerous to make any lasting judgments on who is the best for the long term. But as we stand right now, the ***** are in turmoil, Arizona has no QB, the Seahawks offensive line is a mess and their pass defense is weak. So that leaves us with the Rams, whose defense keeps teams out of the end zone. They have a young QB who is wise beyond his experience, and suddenly they are tied for first in a division that might only take seven victories to win. So as we speak at this moment -- and it could surely change just as quickly -- yes, the Rams are the best team in the division.

              JEFF GORDON:

              They could become the division's best if they manage to get healthier. The Rams impressed everybody by winning back-to-back with so many players either sidelined or playing hurt. If this team can get Jackson up to full speed, regain its depth at tight end, safety and defensive tackle and build some momentum, a breakthrough is possible. As Sam Bradford matures and builds chemistry with his receivers, the passing game will become more dangerous -- assuming that the line holds up. The defense looks legit, despite all the casualties.

              BILL COATS:

              Right now, they probably are. The ***** were the division favorites, but they can't win a game. The Cardinals are in disarray, and the Seahawks are aging and just aren't very talented. There's no question that over the last two weeks, the Rams have played the best football in the division.

              BERNIE MIKLASZ:

              On one level it's ludicrous, beause we're talking about a franchise that just went through a stinking mess of a stretch, losing 44 of 50 games coming into the 2010 season. The losing has been chronic and extreme. The Rams haven't been able to win at home. They've gotten dominated -- bullied -- by NFC West rivals. And even after winning two in a row at home for the first time since 2006, and even after putting the hammer on Seattle, the Rams have much to prove. Can they win on the road? That's another big hurdle to overcome. And they'll get their chance to prove it soon; starting with a patch of schedule that begins Nov. 14, the Rams will play four of five on the road. But that's just one side. The other side is this: this division is really bad. The Rams could...

              Good bye NFC South. The Cardinals have eliminated both of the teams from the NFC South!!!!
