Ah, here we are; the dream team!
All jokes aside, the Philadelphia Eagles will be a better football team in 2012.
LeSean McCoy is a top five running back in the NFL and now that DeSean Jackson has his new deal, I think he's going to show up for the birds this season.
Perhaps the biggest offseason move for Philadelphia came when they acquired Pro Bowl linebacker DeMeco Ryans from the Houston Texans.
The Eagles haven't seen an elite middle linebacker since Jeremiah Trotter, and they now have that to anchor a defense that also includes free-agent signee O.J. Atogwe.
As far as the matchup, the Giants and Eagles split the series last season, with the Giants losing a game in which Vince Young filled in for the injured Michael Vick.
New York is 1-3 against Philadelphia the past two seasons, but they have shown the ability to reach Vick, collecting eight sacks of the elusive QB in three games during the past two seasons.
I think the Eagles present the toughest matchup for the Giants because of their high-powered offense (when it's on). If Vick can elude the Giants' defensive line and hit Jackson, Maclin and Celek, the Eagles can have great success against New York this season.
But I'd much rather have the Giants' defensive line against Vick and the Eagles' O-line.
