NFC EAST: WHY THEY WILL, AND WHY THEY WON'T (http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/giants/post/_/id/14932/nfc-east-why-they-will-why-they-wont)

Excerpt: "SportsCenter has been running prime-time specials previewing the 2012 season for
each NFL division. Tonight at 7 pm on ESPN, they will do their one-hour show on
the NFC East. To help you gear up, we take a look at each of the four teams and
the reasons why you should like their chances to finish on top... and why you
shouldn't.

<a href="http://espn.go.com/nfl/team/_/name/nyg/new-york-giants" target="_new">New
York Giants</a>

Why they'll win the East: Quarterback <a href="http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/5526/eli-manning" target="_new">Eli
Manning</a> has established himself as one of the best in the league, and the
most clutch. Armed with two great wide receivers in <a href="http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/12586/hakeem-nicks" target="_new">Hakeem
Nicks</a> and Victor Cruz (http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/_/id/13553/victor-cruz), Manning makes the Giants a threat to win any game
that's close in the fourth quarter. They have a dominant pass rush that makes
life miserable for opposing quarterbacks, even the very best ones. It's a
passing league, and the Giants pass the ball and disrupt the opponent's passing
game as well as anyone.

Why they won't: The Giants'
up-and-down 2011 regular season had a lot to do with inconsistency on the
offensive line and an inability to control the game with the run. Neither the
line nor the run game appears to have been improved over last year, and that
could lead to inconsistency again, in spite of the outstanding talent they have
at other key positions. Also, it's not their turn. This division has had three
different winners over the last three years, and no one has repeated as NFC East
champ since the Eagles won the division four years in a row from 2001-04. Every
team in the division has improved, so the task of repeating is not an easy one." Read more...

I agree with liking the article, but if this was "beautifully written" then we are setting the bar much too low.
