Realigning the NFL

Does the NFL need realignment? Nope, it is pretty awesome the way it is. But let's say they did. How would you do it. There has been some talk on this site and others about possible ideas for how to realign and I finally decided to give it a try myself and see what I could come up with.

My thinking was go all local as much as possible. This would create incredible hatred between locals that would fuel lots of great rivalries. Plus, the greedy owners would be saving on travel playing so many games close to home. Full disclosure, I was motivated to fix an idea presented on this site.

When I finished it was no surprise that one division is already perfect!

I'm posting to get some feedback. Be brutal or kind... I could care less, but have an opinion.

Also what would be your favorite new rivalries?
