NFC East.... yeah it's that thread


Recommended Posts

Is this the worst division of all time?

The only other times an NFL team made the playoffs with a losing record were

2010 NFC West (Seahawks at 7-9)
2014 NFC South (Panthers at 7-8-1)

This division is currently 2-15-1 (.139) excluding division games. The two wins are Eagles against San Francisco (who was pretty injured) and a historic collapse by the pitiful Falcons who are known for giving up historic comebacks.

Either the Eagles or Football Team take the division at this point. I picked The Football Team to win the division and the Eagles to get a wildcard before the season started. Not exactly going so well in the wildcard department... although still possible.

I still think the Football Team win the division. Either 8-8 or 9-7. I'll say 9-7.

Football Team Predictions:

vs Dallas - W

vs New York - W

at Detroit - W

vs Cincinnati - W

at Dallas - W (very possible L)

at Pittsburgh - L

at San Francisco - L

vs Seahawks - W (upset!!)

vs Carolina - W (Rivera revenge game)

at Philadelphia - W

9-7. Possibly 8-8. NFC East Division Winner. Alex Smith will be the starter at some point.

Laugh now, that's fine, let's see what happens. I also picked The Football Team to win the division before the season started and also got massive criticism as well.

Rivera about to go on a run like he has done many times.

Just remember this about the teams and go a bit easy on the coaches and GMs. Philly and Dallas were likely 9-10 win teams before the seasons started.

Their O-lines and other players have been put in a chipper shredder.

Andy Reid went 4-12 and got fired when that happened to him in 2012.

I just heard SVP say 2020 NFCE has 2nd worst record for a division through week 6 since the merger... Didn't say who the worst division was. Would be interested to know who that division was so we could compare their record outside of the division w/ '20 NFCE's 2-15-1.

Looks like 1984. Through 6 weeks:

Pittsburgh (3-3)

Cincinnati (1-5)

Cleveland (1-5)

Houston (0-6)


5-19 overall. 2-16 outside the division. The Eagles managing to salvage that hard-fought tie against the Bengals is what’s keeping our division from historical ignominy through 6 weeks. 

The 1984 AFC Central went 1-3 in Week 7 (the Steelers beat eventual SB champ San Francisco), so the 2020 NFC East will be safe for at least another week.

This is a famous game in NFL history.

The 49ers went 15-1 and 3-0 and just missed 19-0 in part because they stopped Pittsburgh on 4th down with a pass breakup in the end zone and the ref called a very iffy PI on it.

The Steelers won by 3.

FYI - They cover it in the Americas Game: 1984 49ers video
