Yes, the Giants and Eagles are two very elite teams in the NFL. Then get ready for a four-team race. We know the Giants amazing defence with Osi coming back, and the Eagles amazing offence. And lets not forget two amazing QB's.
We all know that this team is great, but they keep on blowing it (it's like the Mets). Last year at the start of the season all of the NFL writers picked them to win the Super Bowl even former Giant Michael Strahan picked them to win the Super Bowl, but they did not even make the playoffs.
So what went wrong? I think it was the chemistry. I know I am not a Cowboys fan, but from the outside it looked like there were three teams in there: TO, Tony Romo, and the Cowboys. There is no way you are going to win when not all the guys are on the same page.
That is one thing will really kill a team, when they don't play as one (yes, I know it sounds cheese but I really think it is true).
I think that letting go of TO will help them; he was controlling Tony Romo. Tony Romo needs to be thew team leader if the Cowboys want to go far. And I think that now that TO is gone, Romo will be the leader.
The Redskins were in it until the last few weeks, going 1-4 in there last five really did not help them. But they did finish .500.
And in the draft this year at pick 13 they picked DE Brian Orakpo from Texas. I think he will really help them out.
I do not think the Redskins are better then the Cowboys, I do think they will finish last in the division. Maybe even under .500. But I do think that they are a hard team to beat that will give lots of teams a very hard time.
So Giants and Eagles fans, you are not alone. Respect the other teams in the NFC East. I know that it is hard to do that after the Cowboys fell on their face last year even thou the rest of the NFL thought that they were number 1. But this year they will be good, and the Redskins are not far behind.
It will be a great season in the NFC East, cant wait!
