In response to Thesemenarecowards' comment:
I really don't see the parrity others do, especially in the AFC. At least not in regards to there being a lot of teams who could actualy contend.
KC, JAX, CLE, OAK, MIA, BUFF, TEN, INDY..... That is 8 teams, half the conference, who I'd bet no one thinks has a prayer of winning a play-off game. And of those teams, really only a couple, INDY, maybe MIA, Maybe TEN, has much reason for optimism right now.
That doesn't include, NYJ, Cinci, SD, who might sneak into a wild card but no one thinks would actually make any noise in the post-season. So really, there are 5/16 teams in the discussion.
I just don't see parrity in having a massive pack of mediocre at best teams, and a few teams who are clear cut above that pack.
The NFC is a different story.
That's an excellent point as far as who is there at the end. But as far as "any given Sunday" goes during the regular season, Parrity is here.
Last year the NY Giants were one game from having a 500 Season yet unfortunately for us they won the SB.
