Here's what's being said today about the four teams that hail from the NFL's most popular division:

Dallas Cowboys

From Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas: Jerry Jones admits that Jason Garrett is still learning. Can Garrett still become Jerry's Tom Landry? And if so, how quickly can he do it? Warning: window talk.

Four teams have now made offers to the Cowboys for the productive and affordable Mike Jenkins, according to Len Pasquarelli of The Sports Exchange, but Dallas still won't budge.

Bo Martin of The Landry Hat provides analysis and matchups to watch for the entire 2012 Cowboys schedule.

New York Giants

Martellus Bennett wants the world to know he's not fat. Not anymore, anyway, because he's been "beasting out all summer." Can the former Cowboy replace Jake Ballard? Giants fans could be pleasantly surprised.

As much as it was nice to have Osi Umenyiora back Monday, it had to frustrate the Giants to see left tackle Will Beatty back on the sideline with a back issue.

Philadelphia Eagles

Marcus Hayes of the Philadelphia Daily News is surprised their isn't more anxiety regarding the loss of left tackle Jason Peters, noting that Peters was the best player on the team in 2011. So should Philly temper expectations in 2012? 

Sheil Kapadia points out how often the Eagles let Peters take on defenders solo, noting that things could be much different with Demetress Bell manning the left side in 2012.

Washington Redskins

Rich Tandler of CSN Washington wonders if the 'Skins should consider trading for controversial cornerback Aqib Talib, who played for new Redskins defensive backs coach Raheem Morris in Tampa.

Mike Jones of the Washington Post takes a look at the Redskins' rather deep defensive line rotation.'s Daniel Jeremiah looks at why the Redskins could have a quick turnaround in 2012.
