Non-divisional NFL records

After three games we have our first look at the records of each division OUTSIDE of their respective divisions.

NFC EAST 8-0
NFC NORTH 2-6
NFC SOUTH 5-3
NFC WEST 2-4

AFC EAST 4-2
AFC NORTH 1-4
AFC SOUTH 2-3
AFC WEST 2-4

Now, it is only 3 weeks into the season. Too early to be making broad sweeping conclusions about ANYTHING. But the early returns are in and we can see some trends- the NFC EAST is clearly for real. No rush to judgement. We all want to condemn certain divisions as kaput, but the data right now is still too small. To have an outlier like 8-0 is significant for the NFC East though. We knew that with McNabb healthy at the end of last season and that team finishing at the bottom at 8-8, that that meant trouble top to bottom. Even the Redskins are playing a little better than a new head coach would normally imply. This is all good for the Giants. You want a strong division. Let three of the four teams make it to the playoffs. That would be the third consecutive year that that has happened from the NFC East. A good thing. No sleepwalking for the Giants through the division.

Just saw on ESPN that Buress was suspended for 2 games for "insubordination." I missed the exact details, but I'm sure I'll find out soon.

Here's the link to the espn.com story. It seems he basically flaked out on Monday. Can't wait to see where this leads.

OK, it's 2 weeks not two games, so the Giants will not have Plex for the bye week (who's going to pick up the slack there?) and the Seahawks game.

This will give us a chance to evaluate our 3rd round WR draft pick.

hi guys, just broke for lunch. thanks James for breaking the story to the blog, appreciated.

Start Hixon and Toomer, and keep Smith in the slot. I confuse Hixon and Burress now anyway, they are both strong physical receivers. Hixon has worked hard and has improved his game dramatically- he deserves it. Remember, Manning also worked with this guy extensively in training camp. As for Mario, He's still behind Moss so I doubt we will see a lot of him yet.

And by the by, in the "What the hell took so long" department, Matt Millen got fired. I geuss Lions ownership finally got ahold of the blackmail photos in Millen's safety deposit box. 31-84? Rich Kotite laughs at that record.
