So the Panthers were the 3rd best team in the league this year

And it looks like the top 4 teams in the league all played in the NFC.

 

A defense just as strong or stronger than the other two. A quarterback a bit better than the other two. Improve the offense in the offseason and the Panthers should start off the 2014 polls in about 3rd place.

Several starters on defense are currently free agents. Need to get those guys back and then some.

Not sure what logic makes them the 3rd best team in the league.

 

This completely throws out matchups. Also not sure what puts us ahead of the Cardinals using your logic. Cardinals beat the Panthers, Seahawks and Colts (three  of the top up and up teams if you will).

 

Being 3rd best in the league doesn't mean much if it means being 3rd best in your conference anyway. Though it's not bad as being third best in the league and third best in your division.

Not one person outside of Arizona thinks the Cardinals were better than the Panthers this year.

 

1. Seattle

2. San Francisco

3. Carolina

4. New Orleans

5. ...Denver? Maybe?

Cards should be ahead of New Orleans. Defense > Offense, didn't you just watch the Super Bowl?

One bad game by one team does not define the AFC. You are presenting this as though it's the Western Conference in the NBA after Jordan retired.

 

The Ravens won the Super Bowl last year. The Colts improved a lot. The Patriots would never lose like that in a SB.

 

The NFC has won 4 of the last 5 super bowls, but the Giants missed the playoffs this year, Packers barely were in, Saints missed it two years ago.

 

The league isn't as simple as you're making it. Would be nice if it were. Also the Seahawks became the best after three or so years. The 49ers the same. So next year a team in the AFC or NFC could come out of nowhere ( like the rams in the late 90s).

 

And as I said before, even if we're second best in the NFC, it doesn't count for much. The Broncos got to go to the big dance while we didn't even get a playoff win.

 

IF it makes you feel good go ahead and give them the bronze medal before free agency or the draft.

It's just obvious that whoever came out of the NFC was probably going to win the Superbowl.  But honestly, Seattle is a very good team and they were definitely the best team in the NFL.  They beat all the contenders.

Obvious to you. 49ers and Panthers are not Seattle. Their Qbs aren't as good nor are their defenses.
