Some NFC East stuff:

96:

I still think the Dallas Cowboys could have done better than Wade Phillips as their new head coach. That said, Phillips will do what Bill Parcells couldn't do with the Cowboys' 3-4 alignment: tweak it enough so Dallas finishes higher than 13th in total defense.

75:

If one NFC team is going to shock the world, it's going to be … the New York Giants. Workable schedule. Desperate team. Quarterback with something to prove. Better-than-you-think replacements for Tiki Barber (remember what Tiki says in those Caddy ads about opportunity?). Understanding, patient fan base. It all adds up to a possible mini-miracle.

85:

NFC East finish: (1) Philly, (2) Dallas, (3) Washington, (4) Giants.

25:

The most underrated player in the league will be Eagles RB Brian Westbrook.

9:

Philly's no-name WRs Kevin Curtis and Reggie Brown will surprise you with their production.

A couple more.

94:

If Donovan McNabb's surgically repaired right knee holds up, the Philadelphia Eagles will be the last remaining undefeated team.

93:

And then they'll get beat Nov. 25 at New England. You'll hear the 1972 Miami Dolphins popping champagne corks

57:

You will do very well in your fantasy league if you stole one of these three players in the later rounds: Chargers WR Vincent Jackson, Patriots WR Wes Welker, or Redskins QB Jason Campbell.

52:

The NFC wild-card teams will be the Panthers and Cowboys.

45:

The Bears will beat the Cowboys, and the Panthers will beat the Seahawks in the NFC wild-card games.

Anyone else see a slight contradiction? Little lack of confidence there.

"The most underrated player in the league will be Eagles RB Brian Westbrook"

This statement is trash. Westbrook isnt underrated, because everyone cant stop talking about him. If anything he is overrated as a runningback when it comes to running the ball

Sure, he's overrated because he averaged over 5 yards a carry last year.

That's what happens when you run a huge number of draw and tosses. They don't pound him inside because he can't handle it. Why do you think Kenny Watson and Ladell Betts had high YPC averages under Spurrier, even with a horrid blocking scheme? Lot's of 3rd and long draw plays.

You're kidding right. Remember, the Eagles are a pass-first team; they don't run the ball on third and long. He's had plenty of runs up the middle for big gains and most of his runs last year were off right tackle. I'm guessing you've not seen a lot of Eagles games outside of when they play the Skins.

Hope this guy is right. I got two of these three in the late rounds.

Uh, a RB on a pass-first team SHOULD be averaging more than a RB on a team that runs the ball more, as teams that play pass-first teams focus on stopping the pass first.
