When the division was created after the AFL-NFL Merger in 1970, the division also included the St. Louis Cardinals. Despite relocating to Arizona in 1988, the Cardinals continued to belong to the NFC East until the 2002 re-alignment when they were put into the NFC West. Although the St. Louis Rams are geographically farther east than Dallas, the Cowboys remained in the NFC East and the Rams stayed in the NFC West due to long-standing rivalries: The Cowboys with the three other teams in the East, and the Rams with the San Francisco 49ers in the West. The AFL-NFL Merger of 1970 involved the merger of the two major professional American football leagues in the United States during the time: the National Football League (NFL) and the American Football League (AFL). ...

NFC East Is Back at the Top (984 words)
"The NFC East was always the premier division in the NFL, and the division winner always bred the best team in the playoffs, the most battle-tested," Houston General Manager Charley Casserly, who began his career with the Redskins in the 1970s, said earlier this season.
The Redskins won four NFC East titles in the 1980s, the Giants won the division three times between 1986 and 1990 and Dallas began dominating with five straight division titles and six out of seven from 1992 to '98.
Philadelphia has been the best NFC East team of the current decade, winning four straight championships since 2001 and advancing to the Super Bowl after the 2004 season, when the rest of the division essentially skidded in the wrong direction -- the three other teams each finished 6-10.
Early Look At The NFC East • Brian DeLucia's Blog - FOX Sports Blogs (2873 words)
Injuries ruined the NFC East last year, Philly losing McNabb, Washington losing Portis, Springs, Marcus Washington and a host of others off a defense that was ranked in the top 5 the 3 previous years.
TBIAH, the NFC east had the most wins in the NFC last year and at the end of this year we'll see which divison has the most wins.
The worst team in the NFC east will be better then any other last place team in any other division, or sometimes better then 3rd place teams.
