Five Players to Watch in The NFC East '07 (This Isn't a J. Campbell Thread)

Since training camp is approaching, I guess it's actually time to start discussing football again. Here are five players in the NFC East that don't have "star" status, but I think could play a big role on impacting there respective teams.


Dallas Cowboys: Bobby Carpenter. Carpenter is a second year player from Ohio State where he was an outstanding linebacker. He saw limited playing time with the Cowboys, mostly on teams, until very late in the season. My bet is this kid is either going to crack the lineup or get significant playing time this year. Wade Phillips could reap Bill Parcell's rewards if Carpenter lives up to potential.

Washington Redskins: Rocky McIntosh. Yes, I'm on the bandwagon, but I got on in '06, and mini camp reports only confirm my bandwagoness. McIntosh like Carpener was relegated mostly to teams last year, and played sparingly, but many around the Beltway and Warpath.net feel this kid could help the defense return to form. Gregg Williams would just love to foam at that mouth over someone other than Sean Taylor; Let's hope it's Rocky!

Philadelphis Eagles: Takeo Spikes. Philly is Spike's third stop in his NFL career, and he's now two years removed from that nasty achilles injury he suffered in '05. After years of playing for mediocre teams, Spikes is ready to make a run for a championship. If he can stay healthy, Spikes could prove to be a nice addition to Philly's already solid lineup. His firey and intense style of play is a good compliment to that of Brian Dawkins. First T.O. now T.K.O! What is it with Philly and guys with flashy names?

New York Giants: No one player really stood out to me on this team. For that reason, I'll highlight a couple of key losses. Tiki Barber's retirement and Jim Finn's season ending injury leaves the Giants with some question marks at the running back position; Particularly depth. While Brandon Jacobs is an upcoming RB in the NFL, he has big, very big, shoes to fill. This could be Tom Coughlin's toughest year yet as the head man in New York.

*Washington Redskins:* Since I had to choose five players from four NFC East teams, let's add one more Redskin. Derrick Frost. This guy really started to grow on me as the season progressed. In fact, I think he grew on himself as well! His confidence from last season should spill over into '07. Frost could be a good compliment to a Redskins defense that will surely be playing with a chip on its shoulder this year.

Frost's best game was in the Week 15 game against the New Orleans Saints. He had five punts for a 47.8-yard average, including a long of 54, and three kicks inside the Saints' 20. Let's hope we can see more consistancy from Mr. Frost in 2007.

Wow, your 4,000th post was actually relevant. Impressive! Nice post.

I'll add Brandon Lloyd to the Redskins list

Yeah, I thought something other than Bush or Iran was more important.

Re: Five Players to Watch in The NFC East '07

Yea, nice post.

I'm throwing two more SKIN'S in there. Carlos Rogers, we have good depth at corner this year which is great and hopefully SS will be healthy. We need Carlos to step up to the plate!

And of course ALL eyes will be on the BIG man in the pocket!

Re: Five Players to Watch in The NFC East '07

I agree with all those, but I kind of wanted to highlight a few other names.

Re: Five Players to Watch in The NFC East '07

Yes, good post. However, my players to watch in the NFC East are Tony Romo, Jason Campbell, Donovan McNabb, and Eli Manning. How those QBs go is how those teams will go in my opinion.

Perhaps the only proven QB out of them all is McNabb, but he will have to prove he can rebound from injuries and stay healthy. Eli has been inconsistent, but has shown flashes. Romo is overrated in my opinion, but maybe he'll be good enough to not lose games for them. Of course my money is on Jason Campbell. I predict he will struggle a bit early, but he will turn out to be the better of the four by seasons end.

Highlight names on other teams you mean? How about Hank Baskett with the Eagles? With Donte gone, now is his time to step up

How many more years does Carlos Rogers have to be here before people stop puting a d in his surname?

I think this is the year Eli might actually play the position of QB well. Unfortunately for him he's probably working with less this year, and Tom Coughlin isn't exactly a genius when it comes to imagination.

Re: Five Players to Watch in The NFC East '07

Hand down its JC. Its the most important job and its his first year as a starter. We could be watching the future of our team or we could just find out he not our future and have to start all over again for a QB. I don't think that will happen but it could and would set us back more than any other position on the field.

Wade Phillips could reap Bill Parcell's rewards if Carpenter lives up to potential.

I would love to see it happen because I was verry high on him but he wont crack the startign line up he'll be a speciall situation player from all the reports in camp he's behind the line up of James and Ayondele even in some cases Burnnett he's back to MLB instead of OLB.

Player to watch for me is rookie A.Spencer all reports come that he's a Beast he allready has taken comand of the OLB spot he will help D.Ware put terror on other offenses he already had a similar play like Ware's last year on the run interception of vick if you haven't seen it go watch it it's just AMAZING.

Another player it's Spears I think with the adition of Phillips defense Spears will finally turn corners and be like a L.Castillo to this defense.

Washington Redskins: Rocky McIntosh. Yes, I'm on the bandwagon, but I got on in '06, and mini camp reports only confirm my bandwagoness. McIntosh like Carpener was relegated mostly to teams last year, and played sparingly, but many around the Beltway and Warpath.net feel this kid could help the defense return to form. Gregg Williams would just love to foam at that mouth over someone other than Sean Taylor; Let's hope it's Rocky!

I would go for the obvious choice rader Landry I really wanted this guy he doesn't seem to have a flaw he will solidify your defense and help put more presure on QB's by giving your line more time, he will make this defense unpredictable and will help taylor do what he does best. McIntosh I don't like I didn't like it last year to many injuries has lost explosivness.

Philadelphis Eagles: Takeo Spikes. Philly is Spike's third stop in his NFL career, and he's now two years removed from that nasty achilles injury he suffered in '05. After years of playing for mediocre teams, Spikes is ready to make a run for a championship. If he can stay healthy, Spikes could prove to be a nice addition to Philly's already solid lineup. His firey and intense style of play is a good compliment to that of Brian Dawkins. First T.O. now T.K.O! What is it with Philly and guys with flashy names?

I have to agree Spikes is the guy to see you can add Curtis to the mix but I believe it's a downgrade from Stallworth.

New York Giants: No one player really stood out to me on this team. For that reason, I'll highlight a couple of key losses. Tiki Barber's retirement and Jim Finn's season ending injury leaves the Giants with some question marks at the running back position; Particularly depth. While Brandon Jacobs is an upcoming RB in the NFL, he has big, very big, shoes to fill. This could be Tom Coughlin's toughest year yet as the head man in New York.

Also the big story here is like without tiki can eli make it we all know he wont but if I have to chose a player is Mathias Kiwanuka he's moving to LB he will see a lot more time he has the speed I think he'll be making a lot of plays.

D'BOYZ...what's the word on Carpenter coming out of Big D. Does it look like he's going to start or no?

I wholeheartedly agree with you here. I was just trying to make a case for the non-JCs and non-Romos of the East.

But yeah, our season hinges on JC bigtime.

Re: Five Players to Watch in The NFC East '07

the wrod is he wont start he just be a situational player nickel, 4-3 and stuff but the current starters are Spencer,Ayondele,James and Ware that's why for me the gusy to watch is spencer.

Right now Dallas has an exces of talent in the LB front with guys like Burnnet,Carpenter and Ellis as backups guys tha tcould be starters in any other team

I really like Carpenter. I think if he was there at the time, the Skins would have taken him.
