The AFC East is Soft.

September 16, 2009



Sorry for the slow day folks. Can’t count on Gally and Gimp for anything but make the sex offender list and drinking toilet wine. As always, I take over the internet from 4PM on and normally scream at something until I’m blue in the balls face. Today, I was at work and this 100 year old man who is still doing manual labor would not stop ranting about how the Jets have a shot against the Patriots (early line: Pats -5.5). He said he was a Steelers fan after I questioned his mentality. So I guess it was unbiased. Whatever.

He then went on to say the most absurd thing I think anyone has ever said in the entire history of football. /hyperbole. He said: “The Jets are in the toughest division in football, I’ll tell ya!”

After hearing that, my bowels just gave like I was a Crohn’s patient. The Jets, Bills and Dolphins are not in a hard division when the Patriots win almost every single year that their quarterback isn’t spending 1/2 his time on his back and the other time making Gisele spend 1/2 her time on her back. It’s not a “tough division” per se when one team dominates it. That’s like saying the Yankees and Red Sox had a “rivalry” before 2004.

It’s not even that the Jets are in a hard division. It’s that the Patriots are in an EASY division. Those other 3 teams annually hoover up and down the field while nobodies like Kevin Faulk and Troy Brown become household names. If you had to pick the toughest division in football it is BY FAR the AFC South. Jacksonville, Indy and Tennessee are all legit contenders. Tennessee almost had a shot at being undefeated last year while Jacksonville has been a great franchise since it’s beginning and now Houston is on the rise. That is leaps and bounds better than the AFC East. And I’m a Giants fan. I should be slurping the NFC East right now. They potentially have 3 playoff teams every year and rightfully so with the money they spend. I would throw both of those conferences above the AFC East. I would even put the AFC North and NFC North and South above the AFC East.

Having one good team doesn’t make you a difficult division. That’s why the AFC North is better. They have Pittsburgh AND Baltimore who are usually at the top of the list while the Bengals are always bad. Even the Browns had their dynasty even though that is technically the Ravens now.

The NFC North and South send a different team to the playoffs each year. Green Bay and Chicago are usually contenders and the Vikings hang around the middle. Detroit stops them from being a powerhouse. The NFC South has sent 3 of its 4 teams to the Super Bowl in the last 10 years while the 4th made it to the NFC Championship 2 short years ago.

So with all that being said… Fuck You, old guy. The Jets are in a bad division with 1 team to worry about and really just 3 high profile players. After Tom Brady, Randy Moss and Terrell Owens what other guys even scream All Star?

Oh yeah, and if Mike Greenberg compares the 2009 Jets defense to the 85 Bears one more time, I’m going to drunk drive through a schoolyard.

    I one small point I’d like to contest. The Vikings don’t hang around until the middle. They hang out until the playoffs, and blow their load all over the Metrodome’s astroturf, and cry in the bathroom until next season. Then they hope we forget what a letdown it was last time, and hire Uncle Rico only to blow their load right in our face.

    Peace out, Childress. (Am I bitter? Yessum.)

    Yeah the Vikings either got to get off the pot or shit. They’re right on the brink of “Super Bowl team”. I think they are like 1 WR away. And they could pull a Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Baltimore Ravens type superbowl team.

        You shut your face. I can’t wait ’til the ‘Canes don’t make it to a bowl game this year.

          It’s not a matter of if they make it, but who they lose to.

            You’re forgetting the ever popular mid season collapse.
