CHFF: NFC reigns supreme

Cold Hard Football Facts believes the NFC is now clearly superior to the AFC:

In the AFC, every team has some pretty obvious flaws. The Patriots can’t play defense. The Steelers have a hurt quarterback. The Ravens have a pedestrian offense. The Texans are down to “Some Dude” at quarterback. The AFC West winner? Let’s not even go there. The No. 6 seed? Whoever it is, they’re going to be a pretty average bunch. 

I’ll counter with my arguments against every team except the Packers.  The 49ers are playing great defense but cannot generate enough points to keep up with teams like New England or Green Bay.  The Saints look good with recent play showing their veteran chops, but this same team lost to the Rams.  They’re on par with New England in some ways too–defensively they’re better than the Patriots but certainly not as good defensively as the Pack or even Atlanta.  Speaking of the Dirty Birds, their inconsistency is maddening.  They remind me of Baltimore in many ways.  

We could keep dissecting the argument but the two conferences appear to be closer to parity from my seat.

About Todd Smith

Todd Smith is a part-time sportswriter who spends too much time arguing on Twitter. What he really loves is eating poorly and watching football. He got his first Colts t-shirt in 1984 shortly after the Mayflower trucks arrived and has never given up on his hometown team. He also still holds to the belief that Kordell Stewart stepped out of the end zone and thus cheated the Colts.
