...all of a sudden, I now understand why reading comprehension scores are so bad across the board for the state of Texas.
... all of sudden I know why you make excuses.
All right, let's try going over this one more time, very slowly.
I never said the NFC North was weak, and that I'm 100% confident on. I never compared the NFC North to the NFC East. I brought up two independent examples of division winners who did well against their division and did not play as well outside of their division, demonstrating that, no, division winners do not perform worse against their division than they do outside of it. I never once said the two divisions were equivalent, or that they were weak divisions, or that any team outside of the Giants and Dolphins were bad teams
I picked the Bears and Cowboys because they were easy examples, but I can point to others as well. My own Patriots went 5-1 in their division and 6-4 outside of it. The Rams went 6-0 in their division and 6-4 outside of it. None of this says anything about them as a team, or either the Cowboys or Bears. It merely shows that teams do not perform better against their division than teams outside of it.
Once again: I have never said anything negative about the NFC East, North, or any other division, or about any team besides saying the Giants and Dolphins are awful teams. If you somehow think after reading this that I'm still insulting the Cowboys or the NFC East, please find your local English teacher and ask for a refund.
