NFC Beast Rules
The NFC East obviously this season has shown its supremacy over the league. Hopefully our skins can prevail and be crowned division champs in the hardest division in football.

[quote=DirtyLandry;479952]The 2009 NFC east could be the best division in football history thus far.[/quote]Perhaps by 2009, the East will be so strong that the NFL will let our last place team in as a 3rd wild card and have the NFC West champion just stay home ;-)

Kidding aside, I would take the top 4 team in the NFC East in our last Super Bowl year (1991) as the greatest division ever:

Washington 14-2
Dallas 11-5
Philly 10-6 (Randall Cunningham missed the entire season)
NY Giants 8-8

That's pretty stout.

Re: NFC Beast Rules
It's getting to be like the good old days when the NFC EAST was without a doubt the best and most physical division in football. Hail To The Redskins! I hope we kick those brokeback mountain, cowtippin, loudmouth, self-promoting jerks a**'es so bad it will leave no doubt, that no matter what their record is, when they play the Skins, it will be the toughest, most physical games of their season.

Re: NFC Beast Rules
[quote=DirtyLandry;480030]Good point, but we dominated the division that year. I think that the east is so good now that were just gonna beat each other up.[/quote]I disagree about the domination aspect, it was the fierce competition within the division that really battle tested us for the playoffs that year. Our two losses in '91 were in the division: we lost at RFK against Dallas after starting the season 11-0, and at Philly in a meaningless last game of the regular season since we had already wrapped up home field for the playoffs. I attended the Giants game in NY, and we overcame a 13-0 halftime deficit to win 17-13. The first Dallas game was a hard fought win (33-31), with Lohmiller hitting 4 FGs over 45 yards, two of which were 52 and 53 yards.

I do believe that whoever wins the East this year will also be battle tested, and most probably will win the Super Bowl.

Re: NFC Beast Rules
The NFC East is undefeated so far through Week 3. The only teams they've lost to are in its own division.

If we can keep that up for a few more weeks that will be impressive.

Re: NFC Beast Rules
The division is so strong that everyone could have a winning record....the sad thing is, one has to be left out.....and I hate to say it, but I think it will be the Redskins, going 9-7. Best case scenario I see the Skins going 10-6 and 11-5 is what it might take to make the playoffs.....

In regards to the 1991 NFC East standings, we do have to give a shout out to the Phoenix "Arizona" Cardinals, who limped to a woeful 4-12 finish (the Skins' beat them 34-0 and 20-14 that year)

Re: NFC Beast Rules
I clicked that link and see a pic showing McNabb, Romo, and Eli. Everyone just seems to the skins have no chance in this division. God I hope we beat Dallas.
