With my fearless prognostications for the AFC already documented it was time to turn my attention to the NFC.I decided to start will all the teams so near and dear to our hearts; the NFC East.
Speaking of hearts that is what I used last year to make my picks. After booking a room in Miami for the Super Bowl only to have to cancel it after yet another brutal loss in the playoffs, I decided to use my head this year instead.
The Eagles certainly have the talent to make a deep run next year but a lot of things will have to fall in place quickly in order for that to happen. Anytime a team switches quarterbacks there are bound to be some growing pains involved, especially when he is replacing your starter for the past 10 years. Defensively, another year under Sean McDermott should do wonders, but unless a few guys in the defensive secondary step up big that area is shaping up as a huge liability for the team.
All in all Andy Reid will have this team ready come September and they will still win their fair share of games. It is the month of January that am worried about as it could very well be another one and done for the Birds.
Anyway for what it is worth here are links to a preview of each team in the NFC East for the upcoming 2010 NFL season as posted on SportsBook Lists
