How did the Giants/Redskins leap frog us?



Everytime I read ESPN it's either the Redskins and the Cowboys are consisdered to be the best teams in the NFC East or the Cowboys and the Giants. OK, I get that the Cowboys are the reigning champs, they have a solid team, and deservedly should get that honor.

 

Now... a 4-12 team with more holes than swiss cheese gets a QB who's over the hill and they're all the sudden a contender? Really?


Now the Giants are good on offense, even though they have some questions on their O-line.. But what exactly have they done to leap frog the birds? This is a 30th ranked defense who's done nothing but acquire Antrell Rolle and all the sudden they are the major threat? How? I'm not saying they won't be but for the one of the leagues worst defenses (and thats with playing the top 5 worst teams) they certainly don't strike a whole lot of fear into me.


Yes, we lost Sheldon Brown, and we did get rid of McNabb (which could be a blessing or not), but other than that we added Ernie Simms and Daryl Tapp. Two young guys entering the prime of their career. Not to mention our younger guys on offense are getting closer to their primes (DeSean is in the 3rd season aka the breakout year).

The Skins besides getting McNabb are changing from a 4-3 to a 3-4 and very might be trading away the best DT in the league.

 

Sorry I don't understand any of the love that the Giants and Skins are getting
