NFC East Predictions

DeMarcus Ware

Predictions

1. Dallas Cowboys

Absolutely loaded from top to bottom. Haven’t proven they can win in the playoffs, but there’s too much talent here to pick against.

2. Philadelphia Eagles

Steady and solid:as long as everyone stays healthy.

3. New York Giants

No disrespect to the defending World Champions – seriously. But it’s an awful lot to expect them to maintain their impeccable playoff form.

4. Washington Redskins

The best mediocre team in football. Jim Zorn’s arrival will present a mild transition period.

Best Offseason Move

Jerry Jones giving contract extensions to Marion Barber, Terrell Owens, Terence Newman and Flozell Adams. (During the season last year, Tony Romo and Jay Ratliff were also extended.)

Worst Offseason Move

The Giants not hanging on to Kawika Mitchell.

Biggest Question

Can the Cowboys channel their astounding talent down the stretch?

    First I was outraged that you picked the Giants #3 in both pass and run coverage, but then I realized you’re playing right into our hands. Go ahead and shortchange us now, because that’s all the motivation Giants need to kick butt!

    There is no way the REDSKINS are going to finish at the bottom of the division. The NFC EAST is a conference where people beat each other up and play close games. The Redskins have a good running game and a great field goal kicker. They will control the clock and rely on their defense to keep the game close. The secondary will miss SEAN TAYLOR but improve as the season goes on. Look for them to go 9-7 and finish 2nd or 3rd in the division.
