After a nice start to the season (which opened with a victory over Dallas) the Washington Redskins are probably out of contention in the NFC East. Still, their future is bright with a two-time Super Bowl winning coach, Mike Shanahan, at the helm.
The Eagles and Giants, are not only the class of the 2010 NFC East, they seem to be poised for long runs of excellence.
After this season, the Eagles will still have have two very young, very good receivers, a fantastic young running back, and possibly Michael Vick.
The Giants are enjoying their own youth movement as well. Eli Manning is just 29, and with Hakeem Nicks, Steve Smith and Mario Manningham, the Giants passing game should be potent for years.
The Cowboys are by no means old at the skill position: Miles Austin is only 26, Roy Williams, 28, and they added Dez Bryant in the 2010 draft.
But they really don't have an advantage over the Giants and Eagles when it comes to youth and speed at the skill position. That's a tough fact to swallow for Jerry Jones.
