    Might as well get the trash talking going now on the toughest division in Rookie Symposium, make a stand for your division or put it out there for another division you feel is going to be the hardest division to play.

    Never hurts to get some friendly rivalries going already.

    Feel free to make a choice, one for the AFC, one for the NFC and do a little talking with it. However, remember it is all in good fun just to get some good rivalries going off the bat and for some fun.

    State your reasons for selecting them and let's get some good banter going to start with.

    For the AFC I am going to be biased for once, and select my own division the AFC North or the "Black and Blue Division"

    You have the Pittsburgh Steelers, who are a smash you in the mouth team, however the defense is getting older and have a new offensive line and new coach but Big Ben is still under center, and with Todd Haley under center expect the Steelers to still be a productive offense, and their defense tho getting older is still led by the "Tazmanian Devil" Troy Polamalu and still boosts one of the best LB core in Farrior and if healthy Harrison.

    Cincinnatti caught everyone by surprise last year and created the scene with AJ Green and Andy Dalton, with the big addition of "The Law Firm" Benjarvis Green-Ellis who never fumbles, and boosts a great LB core themselves with Rivers and Maualuga to anchor their defense and a hard hitting Taylor Mays back there. It should learn from last year and continue to get better this year.

    Cleveland is a young team building around stud RB Trent Richardson and either will boast Brandon Weeden or Colt McCoy under center. Richardson will have Alex Mack and Joe Thomas to run behind and a decent receiving core of Greg Little, Mohammed Massaquoi and speedster and return specialist Joshua Cribbs. Cleveland defense has Joe Haden and a lot of unknown on the defense but the young guys should put a big effort in week in and week out.

    Baltimore Ravens, Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Haloti Ngata. Need you really say more about the defense? Putting arguably the best LB core with Lewis, Sergio Kindle, Terrell Suggs if he is able to play, Courtney Upshaw. Thompson the rookie S is supposed to hit like a tank to go right with that hard nosed defense and as long as 52 is running things out there win or lose that defense is going to punish people. Ray Rice will run hard behind a tough offensive line and pound the rock and the big play ability of Torrey Smith should be there also.

    Anyone facing the AFC North is gonna have to take a beating win or lose and could expect to see some injuries from any game with them due to the physical nature of this division.

    NFC East is the toughest in the NFC because of the QB play.

    You have electrifying in Michael Vick and Robert Griffin III, you get steady play year in and year out with Tony Romo and Eli Manning. Questions remain about Romo and Vick staying healthy but all 4 teams have solid defenses and each had their big additions of the offseason. NFC East against the AFC North this year should be some of the best inter-conference games of the year.

    My two choices: AFC North, NFC East

    NFC East
    -2 Super Bowl Wins in 5 years (Both Times beating the AFC east)
    -2 NFC Conference Championship in 5 years (Tied with AFC East)
    -4 Wildcard spots in 5 years
    -Fletcher (WASH) 166 tackles league leader 2012
    -3 Top 5 Sack's: Babin (18), Ware (19.5) , JPP (16.5)
    -1 Top 5 Passing Yards: Eli Manning
    -1 Top 5 Rushing Yards: McCoy
    -1 Top 5 Receiving Yards: Cruz


    The only other Division that would get my vote would be the AFC North: 10-6 record against the NFC West (lame), and 1 Super Bowl Appearance (GB: 31 Pitt: 25). AFC North is also the only AFC Division that a person could argue 3 of the 4 teams are talented/could make the playoffs. The NFC has: East, North and South, each of which are three deep in terms teams capable of making the playoffs (which would suggest that the NFC is the better conference...it is and that's another debate...Last Five SB NFC 4 (y) AFC 1 :doodie: )

    Notice too that the first three teams to go were NFC East team and the NFC East was completely booked by pick 13. The only other division to be completely booked...The AFC east which was full @ pick 21. So it appears that the people have spoken already :)

    Correction sir it is not the AFC East that is full, it is the AFC North The "Black and Blue Division"

    For all that "talent" in the NFC East, how many teams went to the playoffs last year from them? How did they rank defensively? Yeah.............let's keep over hyping the NFC East and the crap fest that it is. Eli I will give credit he earned his SB in the real NFL, but news flash. This ain't the NFL, here in the RS he is going to have to earn every inch and the much over hyped NFC East is gonna have to earn their way to being the best of the best in terms of divisions and offensive/defensive rankings.

    Talent on paper hasn't amounted to much in the NFC East and the best thing they can do with their paper talent is whip the :doodie: with it. (y)

    "THIS PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO YOU BY THE AFC, HOME TO REAL FOOTBALL, TRADITIONAL FOOTBALL, WHERE MEN HANDLE THERE ISSUES ON THE FIELD, NOT THROUGH A TALKING MATCH THROUGH THEIR OWNERS/GM'S. HOME TO THE BLING DYNASTY IN THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS AND TOM BRADY. THE BLACK AND BLUE DIVISION OF SOME OF THE HARDEST HITTING DEFENSES IN THE NFL." :D

    The NFC East has 12 Super Bowl wins. The next closest division is the AFC North with 7... 6 of which came from a single team (Pittsburgh). All of the NFC East teams also rank within the top 15 of the world's most valuable sports franchises (2. Dallas 4. Washington 9. New York 14. Philadelphia). There really is no competition.

    We will just have to see how things pan out here in RS if they wind up being as good as not. Washington will be a tough team to beat, good solid defense, young up and coming offense. Philly has a high powered offense and a good solid defense. New York is New York, your good one minute, bad the next. Dallas, is Dallas, good on paper but since Troy Aikman has left they have one playoff win, they have one of the best defensive coordinators in football, now its just a question of whether or not they can get it done and actually get there.

    It's gonna be a good year for football and yeah I will always be the straw that stirs the drink around here just to keep things fun and lively around here. Don't take offense to what I say, just trying to keep things interesting (y)
