1. Philadelphia Eagles - After a 10-6 campaign in 2010, and a Wild Card round loss to the eventual Super Bowl champion Packers, the Eagles were the big winners of the offseason. The acquisitions of Nnamdi Asomugha, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Jason Babin, Ronnie Brown, and more dubbed this team the "Dream Team". I am not completely buying the Eagles as a dream team, but I do think they will be very good this year. This team will only go as far as Michael Vick can take them, and I think that can be pretty far, but not to the Super Bowl.
Final Record and Prediction: 11-5; loss in Divisional round
2. Dallas Cowboys - The Cowboys went an extremely disappointing 6-10 last year, but were 5-3 once Jason Garratt took over, even without Tony Romo. Romo will be back healthy this season, and I expect huge things from him. In my mind, he is extremely underrated, and I think he has the capability to be an elite quarterback in this league. Dallas has quite a few weapons on the offense side of the ball to help out Romo in up and coming receiver Dez Bryant, receiver Miles Austin, running back Felix Jones, and tight end Jason Witten. The defense should improve with new defensive coordinator Rob Ryan. They should make the playoffs as a Wild Card.
Final Record and Prediction: 10-6, loss in Divisional round
3. New York Giants - The Giants may be third in the NFC East this season, but this team could also make some noise. Despite going 10-6 last season, the Giants missed the postseason. Eli was a lot better than his stats showed last season, as many of those 25 interceptions were not his fault in the least bit. I expect a pretty big year out of him. In Mario Manningham, Hakeem Nicks, and Ahmad Bradshaw, the Giants have quite a few weapons to center their offense around. The defense is still pretty good too, with or without Osi.
Final Record and Prediction: 10-6, loss in Wild Card round
4. Washington Redskins - The Redskins are in for a rough season. This team is a mess. Rex Grossman, yes Rex Grossman could be this team's starting quarterback. If not him, well there's the John Beck. Not much too look forward to in D.C. this season.
Final Record and Prediction: 3-13, miss playoffs
