You previously stated the AFC South is the best division in the NFL i strongly believe the NFC East is the best division in the NFL for the past couple years the NFC has had at least two teams in the playoffs, (division leader and wildcard) and this year it had THREE teams in the playoff and one make the Super Bowl.

The NFC East is the Best Division in the NFL

In the National Football League the NFC East Division has demonstrated over the last forty-two years that it is the best and toughest division in Pro Football.

The Dallas Cowboys have won 5 Super Bowls and the New York Giants and Washington Redskins have each won 3 Super bowls, for a total of 11 Super Bowl Victories out of 42 played. That translates into a 26% victory percentage for the NFC East.

Yes, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the San Francisco 49er's have each won 5 Super Bowls. However the other teams in those divisions have done "zip".

The most Super Bowl Victories in order are Pittsburgh 5, Dallas 5, San Francisco 5, New York Giants 3, New England 3, Washington Redskins 3, Green Bay 3, Raiders 3, Denver 2, Colts 2, Dolphins 2 and the Jets, Chiefs, Bears, Rams, Ravens and Bucccaneers ONE each.

The net result is the NFC East is the Toughest in Pro Football!

sorry about not debating the first round i was actually at a debate tournament.

what every one has to see is that this year and for the next couple years the afc south is the best division.

top to bottom they are the best division in the nfl no matter whether the giants won it or not

How can you possibly prove that...just saying it isnt enough...use facts...This year the NFC East had 3...THREEEEEEEEEE...teams in the playoffs...the Giants beat the formally undefeated Patriots...the Giants come from the NFC East...The Colts lost to the chargers who loist to the Pats and the Jags lost to the Pats who lost to the Giants...

THREE REASONS THE NFC EAST IS THE BEST

-- The Cowboys are "America's Team." QB Tony Romo is "America's
Heartthrob" -- just ask Carrie Underwood, personal fave Sofia Bush and
Jessica Simpson. And WR Terrell Owens is "America's Distraction."

-- The Giants play on the greatest stage in the world. The New York/
New Jersey metropolitan area gives the NFC East a leg up even when the
Giants stink. Which they don't, they beat thye Pats...which, the Jags, Colts, Titans, or Texans couldn't...(plus they have a Manning who won a Super Bowl virtually less than half the time it took Peyton

-- The streaking Redskins won their last four games. Think it's a coincidence that they made the playoffs by beating the Cowboys Sunday by 21 points? That's 21, as in the jersey number of late FS Sean Taylor, shot to death last month. Top that for karma.

--The Eagles went to the NFC Championship 4 years in a row and the Super Bowl once...
Nuff said the NFC East is the Best Division in the NFL past and present

weather or not they are americas team is not what we are debating we are debating weather they are a good team

New Jersey metropolitan area gives the NFC East a leg up even when the
Giants stink. Which they don't, they beat the Pats...which, the Jags, Colts, Titans, or Texans couldn't...(plus they have a Manning who won a Super Bowl virtually less than half the time it took Peyton

Jets play on the greatest stage in the world but it doesn't make them the best team.
the giants had a run i will give you that but what you have to see is that they aren't consistent worth two cence. Tom Couflin and his Giants will run hot and cold streaks for ever especially with such an emotional quarterback in Eli Manning.

The streaking Redskins won their last four games. Think it's a coincidence that they made the playoffs by beating the Cowboys Sunday by 21 points? That's 21, as in the jersey number of late FS Sean Taylor, shot to death last month. Top that for karma.

Cowboys weren't playing because they didn't need to i do think it was a coincidence that they beat them by 21 points because there are plenty of dead cowboys football players but they didn't apparently have the karma to beat the redskins

you never even debated the whole afc south side of the debate.

Colts only lost to two teams with their starters. They were missing their top wideout for almost all of the season and still got to the second round of the playoffs. patriots could have easily lost to the jags if they didn't have randy moss. you look at this team and they are consistent and are able to get their every time under the leadership of the great tony dungee.

Jags have the best one two backs in football. Maurice drew jones and fred taylor are so much better than julius jones and marion barber. they are prepared for january with such a good run game and run d. you cant judge the whole team by one game. i mean honestly the lions won six but that doesn't mean that they are better than all those teams.

titans in a year that the madden curse came back still put up a fight. Their star quarterback didn't play great so what happened? Their defense stepped up. You look at them and they are a team that you don't want to play. You see that Vince Young came make things happen and they have a bright future in head of them.

Texans had their top and only really good wide out missing for most of the year. they had a new quarterback in the system and he stepped up almost immediately. they went 8-8 with all this happening.

when you look at this you have to look at who is going to be the best in the next couple years. you cant weigh this all on one game because there is no way tyree makes that same catch twice. he didn't even make an argument of why these teams are good exempt that they play in big cities, have karma on their side, and that they used to be good.

Nuff said the AFC South is the best division in football.
