NFC East: Offseason Mid Term Report Cards
Hello sports fans,
My name is John Matheos. I've been apart of this great bleach community for the past few months. I've been monitoring the NFC East's acquisitions throughout the offseason. In the following slides, I have placed report cards with a brief explanation to why they received that specific grade. Enjoy!
(D-) Philadelphia Eagles
With so many players being dealt and released, it gives me no choice but to grade my favorite team with a D-.
Philadelphia made parts with Brian Westbrook and Donovan McNabb. By losing these two phenomenal players, the Eagles go from a B+ to a disappointing D-. Regardless of their new player signings, McNabb and Westbrook will be missed throughout the years to come.
(C+) Dallas Cowboys
With not much brewing in the office in Dallas, it gives me great sadness to give them a satisfactory midterm.
Don't get me wrong, Dallas is a powerful team, with extensive firing power coming from all cylinders. I just think they have a lot of in house signings to take care of before they can receive a better grade.
(B) New York Giants
Believe me when I tell you this: it truly hurts to give the Giants a passing grade. But with all the movement in the secondary, and newly appointed Mr. Rolle taking part in that secondary, it gives me pleasure to award the Giants with a superb upgrade from last year. I expect the Giants to be a big contender next year.
(A+) Washington Redskins
Being an Eagle fan for 21 years, it gives me great pleasure to say that the Washington Redskins are the grand winners of this offseason.
It doesn't matter what they would of gave up in draft picks, getting McNabb was like receiving gold. McNabb was a legend in Philly and will do the same in Washington under the new head coach Mike Shanahan. The Redskins will be back in the playoffs next year with Donovan leading the way. Good job piggies.
