Yeah, I've gotta disagree that the entire NFC East will go 7-9 and the Skins will win the division. I don't believe the Skins will be worse than .500, I feel the same about the Eagles. We'll have to see, but something tells me that someone's gonna be have at least 9 wins.

he really thinks that everyone in the NFCE is going to be 7-9, and yet 3 of the teams from the AFCN will have more than 10 wins? That sounds like a joke to me.

Yeah, that's stupid. The Giants will NOT win that many games. The Eagles could be 7-9 if McNabb goes down AGAIN. We will win more than 7 we're not decimated by injuries like last year. That's pretty accurate for Dallas though.

The AFC North predictions won't happen. Didn't he realize they all play each other twice?

Did he throw darts to make these predictions?

Everyone in the NFC East at 7-9?? That's a very odd prediction to make.

We have had years where the NFC East has been very close...but not this year, unless the Giants surprise us.

After seeing ESPN's cognescenti giving them a pre-season power ranking of 28(with all-time Redskin hater Pasquerelli being part of the crew making the rankings, of course) and Street and Smith's predicting them to finish in last, I'm just happy to see someone predicting a first place finish, even if it is at 7-9.

I can't believe I missed this thread before starting my own. F... 724Skinsfan!

The win/loss numbers are silly, of course, but I do like the way he is demonstrating that the NFC East is still one of the toughest top to bottom divisions in the NFL.

That has got to be the dumbest thing that I have ever read. All four teams 7-9. And the Giants will not win 7 games. This guy was drunk when he made this.

Why is everyone predicting the Giants to be so terrible this year? I understand that they didn't finish strong last year, but I feel as if everyone is counting them out prematurely. I would have to agree that the entire division is wide open. Every team has potential to be dominant. I would count out Dallas due to a coaching change before I count out NY. I am not about to bet against Dallas right now though.

Welcome. This is what good grammar looks like, people.

The reason why I do not think that the Giants will do well this year is because I don't believe that Eli has what it takes to put the team on his back. With the lose of Tiki in the backfield that makes Brandon Jacobs the starting RB. I do not know right now, but I don't think that Jacobs is as good as Tiki. This year Eli will have to be the man on the offensive side of the ball, and I am not sold on that he can do that just yet...

7-9 for all is such a wierd prediction. I could understand a couple at 8-8 and a couple at 7-9 or something, but all under .500, that would make history. It won't happen.
It is good to see that others don't see our division as that tough. I do think we can beat everyone in our division this year. The eagles are worse, the giants are worse, and the cowboys are worse...the skins got better though...so this could easily mean we will win the division.

I agree that the Tiki was a great loss, but as long as the RB tandem can make up for most of that lost production, I believe that Eli will be fine. I also realize that their Defense isn't bad either. I am actually curious to see what "What's his name?" looks like at LB.
