    Dallas should move to NFC South and Panthers should go to NFC East.

    NFC east is too crowded of strong teams where almost every year you get 3 strong teams in the division and only 2 (sometimes 1) gets to go through to the playoffs....They kill each other and hurt their own chances by playing each others twice a year

    Even geographically it makes sense....

    I'm not going to look it up but I think Jerry has done interviews saying he really enjoys the rivalries the Cowboys have in the division & he would not ever support a move.

    first off, the rivalries.

    Second, in the NFC East vs. NFC South games,

    Dallas went 2-2 (wins vs. Carolina, vs. Tampa, losses vs. New Orleans, vs. Atlanta)

    Washington went 2-2 (wins vs. Tampa, New Orleans, losses vs. Atlanta, Carolina)

    New York went 3-1 (loss vs. Atlanta)

    Philly went 1-3 (win vs. Tampa).

    So I'm not really sure that the NFC East is better than the NFC South. It's probably just that we're all equally mediocre that it comes down to the last week.

    Wouldn't that be more of the same? You'd have Dallas, Atlanta, Tampa Bay and New Orleans. The only valid reason would be geographic locations.

    Just like they should move Baltimore to the AFC East, Indianapolis to the AFC North, and Miami to the AFC South based on geography...

    why not just rename the divisions and keep the long time rivalries that brings NFL and the fans so much joy. :bang2:

    and if those strong teams as you suggest didn't get to the playoffs, are they really strong then?

    This is exactly it. When the NFL did the realignment they considered it a priority to keep the important rivalries intact. It's also why the AFC West doesn't make a lot of sense, because of those old rivalries.

    Just move the franchise to California. Trash the holy dome that is Jerry's lair, and build a stadium right in between LA and SF. JUST as many Cowboy fans as niner and raider fans, and the Cali boy fans will show what real home field fandom is all about. Best part Jerry sells team, and no mo JJ, aaaaaaaaaaannnndd I wouldn't have to fly to Texas to go watch my boys. Selfish suggestion, I know, whatever. :D :cool:

    NFCE didn't deserve anyone in the playoffs this year. Hardly considered loaded with strong teams

    It would seem like Dallas on average travels more on the road in divisional road games than any team in the league. That'd be my only argument for realignment.

    Got to love these young noobs. They know nothing of the strength of the NFC East and what the current division lineup means to the NFL in terms of ratings and money.

    To say the NFCE this year wasn't top dollar strong is one thing. But to discredit the Skins by saying no team from the division deserved a playoff berth is just homerism talking. So the NFCE is only strong when the Giants, Eagles or Cowboys win the division? LoL

    I hate the Skins but they do deserve to be in the playoffs, they won 7 in a row to get in, if that is not deserving then I don't know what is.

    when they had the last big realignment this came up. We were stupid to stay in the East. We could've easily gotten into a division with St Louis, Arizona, and either San Fran or New Orleans. Now, a division like that looks like it would be fairly tough but year in and year out there would've been a lot of years it wouldn't take much to win it. Just think about San Fran all through the 80s and 90s. They played in the worst division in the NFL for two decades and although they had good teams, they were that much harder to beat with homefield advantage EVERY year in the playoffs because they beat the Rams 12x per year. Meanwhile, even in the early 90s we were beating the previous SB winners...NYG and Wash then an always tough Philthy team just to make the playoffs. Meanwhile, San Fran was thumping away on the listless Rams...again.

    Why wouldn't you wanna be in the east?

    Bunch of softies this team has for fans.

    Maybe they should mandate everyone sits in the men's room at Cowboy stadium too.
