That's what you call your basic NFC these days, having watched the none-too-Super Saints die of thirst in the desert, the Cowboys pratfall their way to another dreary loss in The Big Tax Burden (aka, that monument to obscene self-indulgence, Cowboys Stadium), and the Packers and Vikings lose again.
Good lord. Is there anyone in the NFC who's actually good?
I guess Atlanta qualifies, sort of, and Bears' fans will say their 4-1 start qualifies them, until they wake up and realize that as 4-1's go, theirs is as flimsy as balsa wood and as counterfeit as a Confederate fiver. Elsewhere, there's the Battle of the Mediocre in the East, where three teams are 3-2 and the Cowboys are 1-3; there's the pathetic West, where Arizona leads Larry, Curly and Moe with a 3-2 record; and there's the yawn-inducing South, where even Tampa Bay has a leg up on Drew Brees and Co. these days.
The positive spin is that the NFC is just really, really competitive. The realistic take, however, is that it's to the NFL what Applebee's is to fine cuisine.
Not very good, in other words.
