Prediction Time

New, comments

I've waited until nearly the last moment and the time has finally arrived for me to put it on the line and get my predictions on the record. So here they are, your final 07/08 NFC East standings

Philadelphia Eagles 11-5 - This is a playoff team right now and has to be the odds on favorite to win the division. However, if they can prove themselves on defense specifically against the run they could win a whole lot more.

Washington Redskins 9-7 - A surprise here I'm sure... but I think the Skins are going to be the surprise team this year. I think they have the best defense in the division and when you combine that with a solid running game and a young QB that has some weapons with another year under his belt they could be very dangerous.

Dallas Cowboys 7-9 - I don't get all the Dallas hype going into this season. They are the most beat up team in the division as the season starts. Their offensive line is still suspect, and their defense which was the worst in football over the last 5 games of last year is still riddled with questions. Their best player in an already suspect secondary, Terence Newman, has an injury that will likely affect him all season and there are questions at linebacker with rookies and inexperienced guys filling key roles. Terry Glenn could possibly be out for the season and with TO turning 34 this season you have to wonder what kind of weapons they'll have when it comes to crunch time.

New York Giants 6-10 - This is the start of the rebuilding of the New York Giants. They still have major questions in the secondary, questions in the linebacking corps, and questions on the interior of the defensive line. On offense, their line appears to be worse than last year, they lost their best player in Tiki Barber, and Eli Manning has yet to take the step forward the Giants have been hoping for. This will be lost year for the Giants, but if it ends with them getting Bill Cowher as their new coach it will have been worth it.

So there you go. I'm sure all Dallas and Giants fans will be outraged and swear I have no idea what I'm talking about and I'm just biased. Let's hope time doesn't prove them right!
