  • Eli Manning, NY Giants clearly cream of NFC East crop

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...-nfc-east-crop

    Excerpt: "According to preseason conventional wisdom, the NFC East was going to be the best and most competitive division in the NFL in 2012. Through three weeks, three teams are in a logjam at the top at 2-1, and the 1-2 Washington Redskins are a play or two away from having the same record. To the naked eye, it would seem like the division is living up to the hype.

    Get real.

    If you watch the games and take an educated look into the crystal ball, it is very easy to see what is happening in the NFC East.

    The New York Giants are winning the division, and will be its only representative in the playoffs. This isn't an overreaction or hyperbole. Actually, it's exactly what I predicted in the preseason. I'm now more convinced than ever that I was right.
    We haven't even reached October, and I'm already channeling my inner Dennis Green and crowning the Giants." Read more...

                If we take it one game at a time, build on our new found running game, who's to say we can't make another incredible run??

                      "The run defense has been spotty, at best"? What games are he watching?

                        Do yo think that's true of the Panthers' game?

                          Yes. Given the short week, I think the G-Men did an exceptional job shutting down Cam Newton and his zone read option. Yes, there were a couple long runs of 10 - 20 yards (and just 2, if I remember correctly), but that was it, with hardly any other run of more than 4 - 5 yards...and numerous runs stuffed in the backfield. Let's not forget the Panthers had gained 220+ rushing yards the previous week against New Orleans, and last year ranked 2nd in the NFL (behind only Denver) in rushing offense.

                            I tend to think we build on our successes. The Eagles' game will be a great test

                              1) Do you trust Romo in the 4th quarter of a huge game the same way you trust Eli?

                              2) Do you trust Vick not to turn over the ball or to make it through a whole season?

                              3) Do you think a rookie QB on a team with a crippled defensive line can win the division?

                              If you answered "no" to all of the above, then you pretty much agree with the article. I think it was pretty spot on.
                              I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)
