Some NFL observers might say the entire NFC is composed of a bunch of second-tier teams when compared to the AFC's sweeter 16. But then again, the New York Giants did win the Super Bowl -- and earned plenty of respect as a worthy elite team.

Really, New York's victory in Super Bowl 42 reinforces the fact that the NFC has become anyone's conference. It's a message that had been established the previous six postseasons, when Chicago, Seattle, Philadelphia, Carolina, Tampa Bay and St. Louis each took turns representing the conference in the Super Bowl. And as we've learned with Chicago, Philadelphia, Carolina, Tampa Bay and St. Louis, winning the NFC championship one year doesn't mean you'll make the playoffs the next year.

So this conference is all about turnover, with the potential for quick team turnarounds from worst to first, and vice versa. A little wise spending in the offseason, followed by plenty of wise drafting, can pay off big in the upcoming regular season. Fall behind the personnel curve, though, and a team risks falling out of contention quickly. Full Story – Sporting News
