Donovan Mcnabb is a top five QB whether anyone wants to admit it or not. He has one of the best win percentages among active QBs and hes been to five Pro Bowls in his 10 seasons. Three of his 10 seasons he has suffered season ending injuries.
Eli manning has been a pretty successful quarterback the least few years. However, last season, after losing Plaxico Burress, Manning really struggled and looked like he didn't know what he was doing.
Better QB? Mcnabb: Eagles
Leonard Weaver. The Eagles picked up Weaver in free agency. He is a very good runner and blocker, and he can catch out of the backfield as well.
Weaver was a Pro Bowl alternate last season, when he played for the Seahhawks. Seattle and Philly run the same type of offense so Weaver should pick up where he left off with no problems.
Madison Hedgecock is strictly a blocking fullback. He has only three rushing attempts and 31 receptions in 5 years with the giants. He is a good lead blocker but is nothing to worry about for opposing defenses.
Better fullback? Weaver: Eagles
Brian westbrook has been a top 3 running back up until last year. In 2008 Westbrook battled knee, ankle, and rib injuies and still set a career high with 14 touchdowns. 2nd round pick Lesean Mccoy will back up Westbrook.
Brandon Jacobs is a very good powerback. He is hugh and still has good speed. He went over 1000 yards last year. Jacobs is a great back but he is basicly one dementional. Ahmad Bradshaw will backup jacobs.
Better Back? Westbrook/Mccoy-Eagles
The Eagles acquired Jason Peters in the offseason who is arguably the best left tackle in football. With one of the best O line coaches in the NFL, Juan Castillo, Peters can only get better.
David Diehl is a great left tackle. He has started every game for the Giants the last six years.
Better Left Tackle? Peters-Eagles
Todd Herremans is a very good young left guard. In 2008 Herremans had the best year of any eagles offensive lineman. Expect to see Todd in the Probowl soon
Rich Seubert is a good left guard playing in 74 regular season games but only starting 58 of them. He can also play center.
Better Left Guard? Herremans-Eagles
Jamal jackson has started 56 consecutive games at center. That is the 4th most by all active centers in the league. He has been voted as a probowl alternate and SI first team all pro.
Shaun O'Hara is a very good center. He made the pro bowl as a backup in 2009.
The two centers are evenly matched. Its hard to say who is better, But we will go ahead and give the giants one since the Eagles have dominated so far.
Better Center? O'Hara-Giants
The Eagles Acquired Stacy Andrews through free agency in the offseason. Stacy played in Cincinatti last year where he started 15 games at right tackle. He is Huge. Now he moves to RG.
Chris Snee was on of the best right guards in the NFL in 2009. He was selected to his first pro bowl.
Better Right Guard? Snee-Giants
Shawn Andrews is big, very powerfull, and has some of the best technique in the NFL. He has been to two probowls playing at right guard, but now he moves out to play tackle where he played in college. Shawn is a great run blocker and is more than athletic enough to play in space.
Kareem Kckenzie has started 109 career games at tackle. McKenzie has blocked for 4 NFL running backs who rushed for more than 1,000 yards in a season – Curtis Martin with the Jets and Tiki Barber, Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward with the Giants.
Better Right Tackle? Shawn Andrews-Eagles
Brent Celek is a very good young player with great work ethic. Celek in his 2nd season took over as the stater late in the year in 2008. He led the Eagles in recieving in the post season with 19 receptions and 3 TDs. Since the offseason began hes packed on 15 pounds of extra muscle, and worked very hard to improve his blocking.
Kevin Boss is almost the exact same player as Celek. He is a very good recieving threat and has show consistent improvement in his blocking. Since Jeremy Shockey got traded Boss has been one of Eli's favorite targets.
The edge goes to the Eagles here because they also have Cornelius Ingram, who can creat matchup nightmares for any defense.
Better Tight End? Celek/Ingram-Eagles
Desean Jackson is a very explosive reciever and looks to be developing into a great number 2 reciever. Jackson is clearly better than the Giants Steve Smith.
Kevin Curtis is blazing fast has great hands and runs good routes. Domenik Hixon posted good numbers last year with almost 600 yards but Curtis is the better reciever.
Jason Avant is one of the best third down recievers in the NFL. Last season he had 15 catches on third down and 13 of them went for firsts. His former Michigan teammate Mario Manningham hasnt really done much since being drafted. Avant is by far the better of the two.
Jeremy Maclin and Hakeem Nicks both havent proved anything in the NFL yet. All we know is Maclin was rated as the number two reciever in the class of 2009 and Nicks was the number five.
Ramses Barden will be a great red zone target for Eli. Hank Baskett is an inch shoter than Barden, but ,as a state champion high jumper, he can jump much higher. Baskett is also slightly faster. For now i would have to go with Baskett.
Better Recievers? Clearly Eagles
So on offense the Eagles won 12-2
