Wait, why Jim Carrey? Read away...
Welcome to the dark days of football, at least in the NFC East.
Six teams still have organized team activities remaining, but none reside in this division, and thus the real offseason is underway. But that just means it's time to make wild, baseless, compelling predictions, which is always fun.

Calvin Watkins has five things to be happy about and five things to worry about. The concerns: Mike Jenkins, Anthony Spencer, the safeties, the No. 3 wide receiver spot and the interior line. I'll let you click away for the good stuff, but I do agree that all five of those items are worrisome.
With the final three years of Tony Romo's contract voidable, the 32-year-old could become a free agent next summer. Todd Archer makes the case for why the 'Boys should extend his contract now. Lots of fans will disagree, but this should absolutely be a priority for the front office.

Jen Polashock of Giants 101 writes that Jerry Reese continues to face unjust criticism, something that might never change.
Greg Bedard of the Boston Globe points out that DeSean Jackon's contract extension couldn't have anything to do with Joe Banner, whom he argues "never would have done that deal." I agree that it was a lot of money, and Jackson's off-field forays concern me a little, but this team needs him. A lot.
Sports Illustrated's Don Banks thinks that this could indeed be a dream season for the so-called "dream team." Banks cites several reasons, but the biggest could be the peaceful locker room. That's another reason why the Jackson deal was good.
