Kurt Warner calls the NFC West “pretty hard to watch’

Kurt Warner gets paid to watch the NFC West, but he feels the same way that many fans out there do.  The level of play is sometimes difficult to stomach.

“Oh, man, there’s some ugly football in the NFC West, that’s first and foremost,” Warner told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.   “I know we’ve been bad for a while, but at least there always were a couple teams that were pretty competitive. Right now its pretty hard to watch, most of the teams have been pretty uncompetitive when it comes to playing against good teams in the league. ”

Warner says the Rams have been as “competitive as anybody.”  That’s borne out in this chart by ESPN’s Mike Sando, which points out the Rams are actually 4-4 outside of the division.  St. Louis needs to take advantage of their three division games left, starting in Arizona this week.

“It’s almost like somebody’s going to win this thing by default more than earning it and going and taking it,” Warner said.

At this point, just getting to 8-8 would be “earning it.”  The Rams can take a big step in that direction this week by winning their second straight road game.

  1. It’s been that way for 5 years Kurt.

    Why do you think the Cards won the NFC Worst to start with?

    Since it’s the holiday season I’ll be nice and not tell him what else is hard to watch and it’s certainly not his dancing. Never seen it.

  2. The 49ers have been playing most teams close (except the Bucs and Chiefs). They played solid and competitive games against the Falcons, Eagles, and Saints to name a few.

  3. I looked at the schedule and did a little calculating…it is possible (and since I now see it can happen, I am now rooting for it) that the NFC West could end in a 4-way tie at 6-10.

    Seeing if this can happen is now the only reason I have to watch any of the NFC West games, except for when the 49ers come to town this week. Go Pack!

  4. just think what the bucs record would be if they were playing say the afc south? where teams up and down can score points?

  5. We all know that wins are wins and losses are losses, but while the 49ers are 4-7, they easily could be 7-4 right now. They had the lead late against the Falcons and Saints but couldn’t hold on and they just fell a bit short in their comeback bid against the Eagles. Sadly they will get spanked by the Packers and Chargers, but have a chance at running the table against the Rams, Cards and Seahawks in the Division. So yeah, a 7-9 team could win the NFC West, but that’s life.

    But unfortunately for 9er fans. The lost of Gore is huge. And there is no way they will sweep their division.

  7. And as we saw, Westbrook was a more than adequate replacement, at least against the level of competition they were facing. A good D? Maybe not. Either way, one and done…
