NFL Preview: NFC East

by on June 30, 2008 updated June 30, 2008

 Dallas Cowboys – The Cowboys are returning a strong team that went 13-3. key additions are running back Felix Jones and free agent Pacman Jones if he plays. If not for an upset by the Giants on their home turf this is the best team in the NFC last year.

New York Giants – Eli Manning has answered his critics. Avoiding the post Super Bowl plunge and replacing Straham are their biggest challenges. Still, nobody is counting on a replay of last year and that figures in the Giants favor.

Philadelphia Eagles – McNabb, McNabb, McNabb. When the Eagles get this guy more than one quality receiver they’ll get dividends. Should McNabb struggle expect Kolb to play quickly. Trash talk between the defense and offense could also derail an Eagles playoff run. It’s up to Reid to make this team jell.

Washington Redskins -  Dan snyder kept his wallet under wraps this year. 10 draft picks means the Redskins plan on building a team the old fashioned way this time. With a new head coach in Jim Zorn the Redskins are the Wild Card in the NFC East but playing in the toughest division in the NFC makes them long shots.
