How about mentioning that the NFC is primarily made up of teams that were in the NFL at the time of the NFL-AFL merger? Al 20:55, 5 August

The Seahawks were part of the AFC for the first 25 or so years of their existance - someone should verify and change the incorrect info.--CastAStone|(talk) 19:29, 15 February 2006 (UTC)


What my intitial plan would be[edit]

  • Most of the early plans (by my judgement) are flawed. Here's my spin on an original plan for the NFC:

My Plan:

    • Eastern - New York Giants, Washington, Philadelphia, Atlanta.
    • Central - Chicago, Green Bay, Detroit, New Orleans, Minnesota.
    • Western - San Francisco, Los Angeles Rams, Dallas, St. Louis Cardinals.

What do you think? WizardDuck 20:02, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

  • Also, if this division alignment was here today, Seattle would be in the Western Division, Carolina would be in the Eastern Division, and Tampa Bay would be in the Central Division (the Bucs in Central makes no sense to me geographically, however). WizardDuck 20:47, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Teams[edit]

Almost no one cares about the old 'possible' divisions. What are the current alignments? That's what we need to know. Damn it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 99.55.140.174 (talk) 15:43, 24 May 2009 (UTC)


[edit]

I'm putting the new logo in - blogs are not always considered reliable sources, but this blog is run by Paul Lukas, who writes about sports design for ESPN.com. Per the guidelines:

Self-published material may, in some circumstances, be acceptable when produced by an established expert on the topic of the article whose work in the relevant field has previously been published by reliable third-party publications.

Lukas and ESPN meet the criteria, so his own posts on the blog (and his own posts alone) may be considered a reliable source. SixFourThree (talk) 18:42, 2 March 2010 (UTC)SixFourThree

If this news is true, then the NFL will release the news in due time, and ESPN et al will cover it. Wait until then. Even so the new logos probaly have an in-effect date, so changing hte maon logo is premature. They are certainly not in effect now. - BilCat (talk) 18:46, 2 March 2010 (UTC)


it would have been nice to kept the old 3 star logo on the page for historical information. Smith03 (talk) 17:47, 13 March 2010 (UTC)

5 plans for 1970[edit]

It would be nice if we could work this back in again:

There were five alignment plans for the NFC. The plan that was selected was picked out of a glass bowl. Plan 3 was selected:

  • Plan 1
    • Eastern - New York Giants, Washington, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Minnesota
    • Central - Chicago, Green Bay, Detroit, New Orleans
    • Western - San Francisco, Los Angeles Rams, Dallas, St. Louis Cardinals
  • Plan 2
    • Eastern - New York Giants, Washington, Philadelphia, Minnesota
    • Central - Dallas, St. Louis Cardinals, New Orleans , Atlanta
    • Western - San Francisco, Los Angeles Rams, Chicago, Green Bay, Detroit
  • Plan 3
    • Eastern - Dallas, New York Giants, Philadelphia, St. Louis Cardinals, Washington
    • Central - Chicago, Detroit, Green Bay, Minnesota
    • Western - Atlanta, Los Angeles Rams, New Orleans, San Francisco
  • Plan 4
    • Eastern - New York Giants, Washington, Philadelphia, St. Louis Cardinals, Minnesota
    • Central - Chicago, Green Bay, Detroit , Atlanta
    • Western - San Francisco, Los Angeles Rams, Dallas, New Orleans
  • Plan 5
    • Eastern - New York Giants, Washington, Philadelphia, Detroit, Minnesota
    • Central - Chicago, Green Bay, Dallas, St. Louis Cardinals
    • Western - San Francisco, Los Angeles Rams, Atlanta, New Orleans

I concur, especially if this is not listed in another article. Itf it is listed in another article, then it should be linked here somewhere. - BilCat (talk) 22:26, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

NFC titles are NOT NFL titles[edit]

NFC titles have been earned since 1970 only, and are not Super Bowl titles. Dallas has 8 NFC championships, and 5 Super Bowl titles. Green Bay has only 3 NFC titles (1996, 1997, and 2010 seasons). Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 22:26, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

Super Bowl Titles - Incorrect totals[edit]

"Since 1970, NFC teams have won 25 out of 45 Super Bowls.[3]" Not sure what the exact numbers are, but since only one Super Bowl is played per year there haven't been 45 Super Bowls since 1970. This 'fact' needs to be corrected. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.44.119.47 (talk) 06:09, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
