The NFC East - A ranked hierarchy

On any given Sunday any team can win but this is how we prefer things to be.
  1. The Giants must always win. I am afflicted with the power/curse of when I watch them the loose, so I don't, until it becomes clear that a particularly dismal season will render better draft options. But in theory and in practice the Giants must always win.
  2. Though loathed and detested, the Eagles are expected to vanquish the Cowboys and Washington at every meeting and occasion, unless that win would eliminate the Giants from a playoff slot. Because the Giants must always win...
  3. I live in metro D.C. so my contempt both for the name, and the team itself is silently borne and endured. It delights the black corners of my heart when they loose, but I can enthusiastically support them when they play the Cowboys. Unless, that win would eliminate the Giants from a playoff slot. Because the Giants must always win...
  4. The Cowboys must always, always, always to infinity loose because ugh, smug.ALWAYS
  5. As far as the rest of the NFC is concerned, I'm pretty agnostic to the Western division and indifferent to the Southern teams (Falcons, Panthers, Saints, and Buccaneers- plot elements of a future Pirates of the Caribbean sequel).
  6. NFC NORTH: Lions, Bears, Packers, Vikings
    My husband is from Minnesota so there is a loyalty to them. The children who love their mother will always root for the Giants when they play one another. When the Vikings don't progress (which is often) we can root for Green Bay because they party hard in Wisconsin and there will be cheese, unless that win would eliminate the Giants from a playoff slot. Because the Giants must always win...
