I consider the teams that consistently compete in the playoffs the better teams. The teams that have won a Super Bowl and have / had, or continue to compete in the playoffs are elite. What I mean by that is a team could have been consistently competing in the playoffs before their Super Bowl win and I would consider them elite. I don't have to wait to see if Bal continues to compete in the playoffs to call them elite, since they have already competed the previous 4 years. They had been in at least the divisional round the previous 4 years and made 2 AFCC games. That combined with their Super Bowl win makes them elite.I don't like to use the word elite unless the team has won a Super Bowl, but I would consider Atl one of the better teams in the NFC.
The Giants are the only exception to my rule. Winning 2 Super Bowls in 5 seasons makes them elite.
Flacco didn't deserve the MVP and even if he did it doesn't make him elite.
Well to you the Jets were elite along with 3-4 other teams. How does one rank elite teams in the same year anyway? Elite should be elite.you understand that more than 1 team can be elite, right?

You said the same thing for Eli Manning both times. Why not hire you on the award committee b/c they clearly have no clue what they're doing with their current staff.Flacco didn't deserve the MVP and even if he did it doesn't make him elite.
