I'll go a step further too. As much parity as there is the NHL, that which is in the NFL is even more abundant. Teams struggling to make the playoffs in the NFL don't suprise me at all when they come close to going on deep post season runs. The league is more balanced as a whole in the NFL.
I think the parity is due to the nature of the game and the fact that players can step in and make an impact so much faster (rookies and 2nd year players) and not so much the CBA.
