NFC East: Do Eagles still have enough?

by Cris Carter

July 31, 2003

Predicted order of finish:

1. Philadelphia

2. New York

3. Washington

4. Dallas

Listen to Cris Carter's full NFC East preview

I don't see any change in the order of finish from last season for the NFC East, but that doesn't mean the teams haven't made changes. Every team has gotten better except Philadelphia, but the Eagles might still be good enough to win the division.

The Eagles aren't getting any younger. Has their window of opportunity closed? They've been in the hunt for the NFC title a lot recently, but the loss of Hugh Douglas and some other players could be costly.

But Philadelphia still has Donovan McNabb, and I think that he can carry the Eagles back to the top of the NFC East.

The Giants are much improved. With Jeremy Shockey, Amani Toomer, and a healthy Ike Hilliard, the Giants have a great core of pass-catchers for Kerry Collins. New York has a chance to win the division and certainly could contend for a wild-card berth again.

Now this is a Steve Spurrier team -- with lots of speed and athleticism. Adding Trung Canidate and a premier receiver, Laveranues Coles, can only make Patrick Ramsey better. Spurrier is a brilliant offensive mind; now he has some potentially brilliant weapons.

Dallas is in for a long season -- at least in this division. Bill Parcells is about a .500 coach when he doesn't have Bill Belichick running his teams' defenses, but offense will be the problem with this team.

The Cowboys still have quarterback questions. They have receivers who haven't stayed healthy. And Emmitt Smith is not only the league's all-time leading rusher, but he was the Cowboys' one constant through some turbulent seasons.

I still get a chuckle out of watching the replays of the games the 'unbeatable' 15-1 Vikes lost in 1998 and then 41-0 in 2000 in the NFC title games.

Carter and Moss loved to run their mouthes but in the end they didn't get to a Super Bowl together and now the team is rebuilding from the bottom up.

Go ahead, Cris, tell us all about what it takes to win it all in the NFL :)

And please don't rehash thoughts that the 8 year old living next door has already had in regards to the upcoming season :D
