Who is the Best Team in the NFC?

Ron GloverSenior Analyst INovember 8, 2006

IconIt looks like the invincibility tag has been removed from the Chicago Bears. After being beat soundly by the Miami Dolphins, the Bears seem to have slipped back to the pack in the NFC despite a 7-1 record. There is a logjam of teams sitting at 4-4 or 5-3 with the ability to give the Bears a run for supremacy in the NFC.


One team in particular is the Philadelphia Eagles who are 4-4 and could easily be at least 6-1 but that's another story. This is a team with enough firepower to compete with anyone. Therein lies the problem the Eagles score to quickly leaving the defense on the field for extended drives making them vulnerable late in games. Three of their four defeats have come on the final play.

I see the Birds as a team that can give Chicago all it needs in a playoff setting in Philly or Chi-Town, where Donovan McNabb, a Chicago native has never lost.
