Re: [NFL] Week 17 Games Discussion

Don't worry. From the Redskins to Philly, the NFC East sucks ass. A once dominating Division of the NFC and of the NFL can barely have any teams with a winning season. If playoffs were based solely on records, they (Washington) would be tied with 4 other shitty teams for the #9 spot.

The Redskins suck.
The Cowboys suck.
The Giants don't know they suck but they do. (How do you screw up the end of the season so bad?)
Philly has always sucked and they know it.

When did the NFC East steal your toys?

You're not going to find too many people agreeing that the Redskins suck by the way. And the Giants won the Super Bowl last year so there's that.

At least they had teams with winning records. The NFC West set the suck record a little while ago, which may be a little hard to eclipse.

I remember when a team played any NFC East team, it was expected that they (the opposing team) were going to lose. Nowadays, lol.

Go Cowboys. (Jerry should fire Romo and sell the team.)

Outside the NFC, the NFC East is 8-8 against AFC teams.
Outside the NFC East but within the NFC, the NFC East record is 11-13

So, playing teams outside the NFC East, the NFC East teams record is 19-21.

I don't want to take the effort to check out other divisions, but feel free to see what division did best when playing teams outside their division.

Redskins are in the playoffs, and send Dallas home. This is pretty sweet.

By the way, Alfred Morris is pretty good.

Yeah.
Alfred Morris... who?
Alfred Morris 335 rushes for 1600+ yards in his rookie season.
Oh, that Alfred Morris. He's pretty good.

I disagree with the Redskins and Giants sucking, but I agree about the other two. Mostly because I don't like them at all.

I disagree with your disagreement but still agree with your agreement.




I even predicted their failure back in Sept.

I'll admit, it took me a few seconds to parse that post.

The Giants had a tough schedule and lost 2 of their last 3 games to division-winning teams. I'm not sure why they played like shit (the secondary was always bad, but still) and got blown out both times, but I can understand the losses.
Earlier, the Redskins beat them by 1 point, the Steelers by 4, and Cinci by a bunch (another play-off team).
The Giants also beat up on the 49'ers, Packers, and Saints, so they don't suck.

But screw it, they won it all last season and that's good enough for me. They don't suck. Next season we'll be back.

The 'Skins are in the play-offs and that for me says they don't suck.
Romo's been choking at the end of the year for a while now. It's expected. They suck.
Eagles just suck.

That's my NFC East breakdown.

At least you had a shot at making the playoffs going into the last week of the season.

This is only the 2nd time since 1991 that the Stillers had no hope going into the last week.

It was a strange feeling, watching the game knowing absolutely for sure that it was indeed their final game of the year, no matter what happened. I was half-hoping for a loss just to get a slightly better draft pick.

Teams that run off a string of seven consecutive victories to end a season don't suck.

Here are some teams that suck: Kansas City, Cleveland. Philly. Buffalo, St. Louis, and Detroit. Indicators of their suckage are poor W-L records and an inabilityto string any series of victories together.
Teams that do string victories together and that every other team is scared to death to play are not in that same category of suckage.
Two such teams play each other Sunday-- Washington and Seattle. The rest of the NFC playoff teams are no doubt veryhappy to know only one of them will advance.

The Rams went from 2-14 last season to 7-8-1 this season, including wins over both the 49ers and Seahawks. They aren't 'there' yet, but don't include them with the 'going nowhere' teams.
