NFC East Teams Rosters vs the Skins

Dust has settled mostly with the rosters and now gives us a chance to take a look around at our immediate competition and how do we stack up.

If I had to rank our roster within our division I’d say it’s 3 out of 4 teams because Giants are in a clear rebuild as they have removed a lot of the talent on the team.

I actually think from a talent position, Eagles and Cowboys are close and within the NFC only the Saints, Vikings, Bears, Rams are in their class. My personal feeling is Rams are a little overrated and Vikings are underrated.

The Skins have an outstanding mix of young and vet talent BUT at skill positions we are largely unproven or too volatile due to health. We must have a lot “come together” in order to compete within the division ie staying healthy and young guys need to emerge from “potential” to consistent contributors.

Dline, Corner, And RB...this is where we hold our ground with talent. Landon Collins and Trent Williams are outstanding players

Eagles: Oline, QB, TE, WR. Fletcher Cox and Jenkins are outstanding on a solid defense

Cowboys: Oline, LB, RB, WR. Byron Jones and D Lawrence are outstanding individual talents.

Giants: Saquon Barkley...biggest offense weapon in our division.

Everyone deals with injury but it’s really impeded our squad the couple years...I’m hoping for health. I think the Eagles defense could be much better if their Secondary also remains healthy they got crushed with injuries last year. Too me, the thing holding the cowboys back is the coaching. Dak played well the second half, but he needs to put it together for an entire year for them to be successful.

Re: NFC East Teams Rosters vs the Skins

Pretty much nailed it. I like keeping the discussion here to the level of talent, rather than taking it to the injury risks, because while those risks are completely real it gets exhausting talking about them.

Our roster in the trenches stacks up well throughout the NFL, we just happen to share a division with the Cowboys and Eagles who are probably 1-2 in the entire league for offensive line.

But you said it, pass catchers for us are light years behind the others. Jeffrey, Jackson, Agholor, Ertz, and Goedert. I mean god damn. Then the Cowboys have Cooper and bunch of jags, but when you have Zeke running behind that line and Cooper drawing attention, a bunch of jags are enough.

I keep saying it - WR position will be the reason we're either stuck at 7-9 or we break through to a playoff berth. We have some potential in spots. There's reason to be excited about McLaurin and Sims in particular. But until they prove it you have to slot our roster below the Eagles and Cowboys.

Re: NFC East Teams Rosters vs the Skins

We have a lot of "potential" at WR and TE but its whether guys match that potential AND stay healthy. I think we'll see some guys like Quinn move up to be very good but we have let a lot of WR talent walk out the door with 1000 yd players like Crowley, Jackson and Garcon all go and we're still playing guys like Doctson...

I think the big issue with the 'skins is the QB position. As far as Haskins goes, he either starts right away, starts after 5 games or so, or waits out the season and probably gets a new coach and offense next year. If Haskins starts right away, then you will see some occasional great plays mixed with rookie buffoonery. If he waits to start until the fifth game it is because we probably LOST most of the first games and the story of the rookie QB moves on as stated before. If he sits for the whole season, then we are putting it all on Case Keenum, who has not demonstrated an ability to win on any other team.

The Eagles are the team to beat. I personally think the Cowboys are overrated and we are better than the Giants because of our defense and DL.

I think Cam Sims starts at WR opposite P Rich.
