HUH?-lol WTF is he talking about? He states because of Farve, Aaron Rodgers, and Jay Cutler?

So what team would be the Lions? The Redskins? And the Giants would be the Packers? The cowboys would be the Bears and the Eagles the Vikings?

He is saying the NFC North could have three teams that are powers in the NFL. The Vikings have had alot of hype and have a good team, the Bears have a quality QB with some players and the Packers have a top 5 QB with one of the best WR corps in the NFL. All three could win 9+ games this year.

But there was never a team in the NFC East as bad as the Lions. And the Packers and Vikings are not on the same level as the Eagles/Giants/Cowboys

Last year no but this isn't last year. Rodgers is Better than Romo, Eli or McNabb. The Vikings defense is improved and it should help them. Why are the Cowboys so high and mighty, whens the last time they won a playoff game? You seem to be stuck in the mid set that the NFC East is the pinnacle and everyone else is playing catch up. Well guess what the NFC north has caught up.

Stats don't lie

Rodgers 63.6 completion % 4038 yards 28 TD's 13 int's 93.8 QB rating

McNabb 60.4 Completion % 3916 yards 23 TD's 11 Int's 86.4 QB rating


So Rodgers threw for more yards, completed a higher percentage of passes more touchdown passes and a higher QB rating. Sounds like the better QB to me.

Mcnabb was in the NFC Championship and Rodgers was in his living room

Oh I see, so Mcnabb played defense for the Eagles? Oh wait no he didn't. You see you can still be a good QB on a bad team. THe reason the Packers STUNK last year was we had no defense nothing to do with Rodgers. Something some one who watched him last year could tell you.

Did you ever hear the statement-"The best defense is a good offense?"

When the Eagles was crap in 2000, it was Mcnabb who put the team on his back and carried them to the playoffs because he had to make up for the weak defense.

I prefer "Defense wins Championships". Did the Ravens have a great QB when they won the Super Bowl? Not really. I would also say the reason for the Steelers success isn't Ben R, not going to try and spell his last name, but their all pro defense.
