NFC Hierarchy/Obituary: Week 0
In case you're unfamiliar with my pre-Philly.com travels, I do a “Hierarchy/Obituary” post every week during the season, in which I kill off teams that I think have reached the point where they have almost no chance to make the playoffs. I then write their obituary and never speak of them in the Hierarchy again… well, except in the Redskins’ case last year, when I killed them off at 3-6, and then they rattled off 7 straight wins and won the division. I also rank the teams in terms of the hierarchy of the NFC, from least threatening to the king. The AFC gets completely ignored, because I’m not going to pretend that I know the AFC teams anywhere close to the level that I know the NFC teams.
