No one said anyone in the NFC East has started 0-2. They're discussing the importance of a game at the start of a season as opposed to the end of the season. They all weigh the same, especially with as short of a season the NFL has. That's why teams that start of slow have that much less of a chance of making it. 0-2 was my example as only something like 12% of teams that start that way have made the postseason.
