True, this is the year to emerge from the NFC. In order to win the SB you have to get there. It is easier to get there in the NFC this year.
a pittsburg fan-friend of mine brought up a good point... The Eagles who are supposed to be the NFC's elite had trouble against a half-decent baltimore and just fell apart when they played the AFC's now elite Pittsburg. This leads me to think, the NFC is lousy compaired to the teams in the AFC.
Here are the elite? in the NFC:
That is it! none of these teams are impressive, including (sorry to say, the vikes) compaired to AFC's elite which extends much farther and wider:
7. and even the Jets and Bengals
The NFC just cannot compete right now...this is why Vegas already is giving any AFC team in the super bowl the odds. Every one of the NFC elite has a sub-par defense. If only the Vikes get there defense on track, they would be a powerhouse in the NFC. the eagles have no excuse to not make it to the superbowl and the vikes have no excuse to not make it to the play-offs this year... hell, we should be able to get in with 9-7 as long as we beat Green Bay over x-mas.... LET'S MAKE A RUN! GO VIKES!
