I think that is way to conservative an estimate for the NFC East teams.

We are all playing the NFC West and the AFC North this season. Those are not 2 divisions that you can label as "power houses" like the NFC East. The BEST record from 2007 from those 2 divisions is 10-6, and 5 of those 8 teams finished the regular season at .500 or worse. Only 2 of those teams made the post season, because they won thier respective divisions.

Now if the NFC East were playing the AFC South this season I would agree with you.

But other than the disparity between road vs home games and placement of team bye weeks, this is really a cake schedule for the NFC East. Once again our main opposition will come from within our own division.

I can see your point about the performance of those divisions last year, but I don't see this year playing out like last year for either those divisions or our own. I like history too, like the time the Rams went from worst to first and won a Super Bowl ('99). Point being, last year's results are often times only that, last year's results. Plus, those divisions have some stout defenses, and playing defense gives you a chance. I think Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Arizona and Baltimore each have a good shot at beating Dallas. the 49ers are a long shot, but I like Mike Nolan, love Patrick Willis, and think Frank Gore and Mike Martz will get the offense to the middle of the pack. I don't see any team in our division downing that sixpack.

I was conservative, but I went through each team's schedule and that's what I saw. I tried to not be a homer, to objectively look at the schedule. I really undersold the Skins, but that is because I don't think we did a good enough job at filling the holes we had last year.

I think the Cowboys won't win as many games as last year, simply because they won 13 games last year and still didn't win in the playoffs. This year I think they take a little off the throttle in the regular season in an effort to win a playoff game. There's a lot of pressure on the folks in Dallas, is Wade the kind of coach to handle that?

ESPN - Camp Confidential: Giants trying to avoid Super Bowl hangover - NFL

After I read this article I must admit I felt like I'd overlooked the giants. It makes their secondary sound better w/Kenny Phillips. Still, they might be better on paper than I thought, but I see a tough year for them.

Re: Post your NFC East predictions here!

Giants 11-5 (Have something to prove but will fizzle in the playoffs)
Cowboys 9-7 (Romo has just a few bad games and TO jumps ship)
Skins 8-8 (I agree with Memphisskin we need another year to fill in the gaps)
Eagles 6-10 (They missed their chance, they wont have another until they stop investing in Mcnabb)

Re: Post your NFC East predictions here!

I really believe that any team in this divison could end up on top. but here's how i see it.

Cowboys 11-5
Redskins 10-6
Giants 9-7
Eagles anywhere from 9-7 to 7-9

Gotta love the NFC east being the best divison in football again.

This isn't going to happen(except for the Redskins hopefully) but it would be nice to see it happen, wouldn't it?
This is my real prediction:

Cowboys:13-3[Get on a roll, but stumble the last few games, one and done in playoffs-thanks to Romo ]
Redskins:12-4[Start off slow but we pick up speed as the season ends]
Giants:9-7 to 6-10[Lost key leaders in Strahan and Shockey, Stumble through season]
Eagles:6-10 or worse[Once again McNabb gets hurt(and adding insult to injury ) only to have Westbrook follow and the team crumbles]

Seriously? I respect your opinion, but I think you're WAY off here. He played in an offense last year that was constantly battling itself (Gibbs and Saunders). Let's at least give Campbell a chance to prove himself in an offense that IMO is better suited his talent.

Re: Post your NFC East predictions here!

hmmm from what i seen tonight, Campbell continues to take to long to wind open on his throws, and continues telegraphing some of his throws, our offense will sputter. this season rides on Campbell. Some im not even going to try and predict the NFC east standings untill the end of preason
