I think the NFC East is once again the toughest division in the NFL (going off by memory of the other divisions.) I see three of the four teams making the playoffs, with the Redskins just missing out. I expect RG3 to have a great ROY worthy year and making some noise with Washington.

Wouldn't be shocked, and hoping for the Cowboys's to have yet another failure of a season that looked somewhat promising led by one of the more overrated players in the NFL.

It's always tough to do well after a Superbowl win, so that's why I pick Eagles to win the division, Cowboys 2nd getting a WC, Giants, then Redskins. All teams should get at least 5 wins.

I think NFC East (Giants, Cowboys, Eagles) is the second toughest division after NFC North (Packers, Lions, Bears). I think two teams from each of those divisions make the playoffs. The Eagles are the most talented team, so I'll pick them to have the better regular season despite the Giants being the champions and Cowboys being my hometown team.

it's funny cause romo is actually one of the most underrated players in football (at least in terms of fan perception).

this is always a weird division. three of the teams are basically capable of winning the super bowl or falling apart and missing the playoffs any given year.

Can't tell if serious.

If you are do go on and explain how those contending Bears missed the playoffs altogether two of those three years.

Edit - Post for K4l not above.

And at above, yeah I think it depends on who you ask (if he's overrated or not.) Think most would agree that their team is overrated though.

I meant past two years in 2010 they won the NFC North and lost by 7 to Packers in the Conference Championship a game where Cutler got injured, in 2011 they were 7-3 until Cutler got injured and went 1-5 they probably get the wildcard if Cutler stays healthy.

I say Eagles. There's always an adjustment period for free agents, and Vick's poor health didn't help last year either. But I could see them finishing 8-8 too because of great years from the Giants and Cowboys.

Regarding the Bears, they have been far better recently than the Cowboys.

That's my thought on it as well. And Nnamdi just didn't all a sudden suck. New system. Eagles pass rush is going to be nasty. It was already good but adding some of that youth.


Giants will be right there though.


I've never given a thought to the Cowboys as title contenders like the media and their fans wanted to make you believe now or last few yrs. Playoffs are possibility of course.

Eagles.

The thing that I like is how many players were pissed that the Giants won the Super Bowl. The Jets losing that game to the Giants was so critical.

Also about the Bears, I'm worried about their offensive line but they're good. I'm a big Jay Cutler fan (obviously bigger than many posters here). If they can stay healthy they're real contenders in the NFC.

I'll take philly here. I think Meco's addition will be huge for their run defense.

Giants will have a let-down year. Vick will get hurt. The Redskins have very little talent.

It's the Cowboys year

The Eagles win the division if Andy Reid doesn't try to make Vick or whoever is at QB throw 50 times a game/get destroyed. He has a good back in McCoy, and shouldn't be afraid to use him. I agree with the other guys who said that Ryans is a huge addition to the defense and the Nnamdi shouldn't be that bad again this year.

The Giants will play their dangerous game of coasting through a regular season. Reuben Randle has the talent to step in right away for the departed Manningham. I think they'll be a fringe WC team. They were a fringe team last year too and look how they did. Eli seems to respond when everybody thinks he'll flop.

Not too sure about Dallas. Hype machine aside, they did make some nice additions to their secondary this offseason. They could make a surprise run at a WC spot. Another fringe team.

Washington will finish last, but should show promise for the future. They'll compete, but there just isn't enough on the roster right now for them to win the division.

Eagles/Giants/Cowboys/Redskins
1st-3rd could realistically be in any order.

Everybody's underrating the Giants. Just be careful, you may be surprised. This team figured it out late last season, but once they did they knew they can beat anybody. They'll be strong this year.
