I'll list a few teams and if you guys would just respond Contender/Pretender...
Minnesota - 3-1 (beat SF, Jac, Det)
Arizona - 4-0 (beat Sea, Mia, Phi, NE)
New YorkJ - 2-2 (beat Buffalo, Mia)
Buffalo - 2-2 (beat Cle, KC)
Green Bay - 2-2 (beat NO, Chi)
Detroit - 1-3 (Are they finished already?)
Cincinnati - 3-1 (beat Cle, Jac, Was)
Washington - 2-2 (beat TB, NO)
Pretender - Minnesota, Arizona, NYJ, Buffalo, Detroit, Cincy, Washington
Contender - GB
Not buying any of those teams, while I believe that GB is still a top 2 team in the NFC and burdened with a horse**** record. They're 3-1 in my eyes.
The only debate I even had was Cincy, but I still regard them as a last wildcard team at best, and I have my doubts even there.
