New York Giants:  Will They Claim the NFC East in 2010?

Well, after a horrible end to their 2009 campaign, the Giants have been portrayed as the underdogs in the East.

Bot, in the words of Lee Corso, not so fast!  

In fact, the Giants will finish in the top half of the division, and could possibly squeeze out a division title.

Let's look at what has shaken up the East this off-season.

Quarterback Goes Potomac:   Donovan McNabb left the city of brotherly love for our nation's capital.

Redskins Get a New Coach:  Mike Shanahan, former Denver Broncos coach, takes over in DC.

Philly Tries Out New Quarterback:   With the big name gone, it looks like Kevin Kolb will get the nod.

Giants Hire New Coordinator: Hoping to avoid another midseason debacle, Tom Coughlin brings in former staffer Perry Fewell from the Buffalo Bills.  

Cowboys Still Have Their Core:  Roy Williams, Tony Romo, Jason Witten and Marion Barber are all ready to rumble in Dallas.  

Taking all of these things into consideration, I see the Redskins finishing last and the Eagles in third.

The McNabb switcharoo has given Philadelphia an identity crisis, and I don't see Shanahan doing much because it's his first year with the Skins.

This leaves New York and Dallas to battle it out for first.  I see Dallas winning the division by one or two games, but the Giants still taking it down to the wire.  

But, if you remember the 2007 playoffs, the Giants beat the NFC East champion Cowboys, en route to a Super Bowl victory.
