    Division-by-division All-Pro teams

    http://davedameshek.nfl.com/2013/07/03/division-by-division-all-pro-teams/

    [IMG]

    NFC EAST
    Coach: Tom Coughlin

    OFFENSE
    Quarterback:
    Robert Griffin III
    Running back: “Shady” McCoy
    Wide receivers: Dez Bryant, Hakeem Nicks, Victor Cruz
    Tight end: Jason Witten
    Offensive tackles: Jason Peters, Trent Williams
    Guards: Evan Mathis, Todd Herremans
    Center: Phil Costa
    DEFENSE (4-3)
    Defensive ends:
    DeMarcus Ware, Jason Pierre-Paul
    Defensive tackles: Jay Ratliff, Fletcher Cox
    Outside linebackers: Ryan Kerrigan, Anthony Spencer
    Inside linebacker: Sean Lee
    Cornerback: Brandon Carr, Morris Claiborne
    Safeties: Antrel Rolle, Kenny Phillips

    Number of players by team …
    Cowboys: 9
    Eagles: 5
    Giants: 5
    Redskins: 3

    Analysis: A fascinating cupboard of offensive talent, yes … but the worst secondary of the eight divisions is the team’s undoing.

    =================================================


    I certainly don't agree with all those picks but I like the idea we have the most players not that it means a great deal at this point in time. I guess no one told him Spencer was a DE. Costa is a surprise but I won't be flabbergasted to see Fred start at a G position although I wouldn't make any wagers on that.

    I can't believe I'm going to say this but, how can anyone not put Eli Manning at QB for the division, at least based on history? Don't get me wrong, it's not that I think he's the best QB in the division at all, but come on!

    I'd too consider him better then Romo right now. He had a down year last season but because he seems more clutch then Romo and he won two SB he must be picked first.

    RGIII had a great start in this league but to put him first is way overrated imo. Let him have 2 or 3 more of those years and there is a point for him being no 1 in the division.

    Overall i'd say:

    1. Manning
    2. Romo
    3. RGIII
    4. Philly QB (whoever will start for them this season)

    Yeeahh... the center and safety situation in the NFL East must be pretty ghastly if those guys are on the All Pro list.

    Also, why is Spencer an OLB and Ware's a DE?

    Spencer at OLB and Ware at DE doesn't jive. Can't mix and match.

    Correct, Spencer wouldn't be very good as an OLB in the 4-3 (which is what he's got listed). It would make more sense to put Carter in that spot, but he does have a pretty small sample size at this point.

    How is Costa considered the best C in the division?

    I don't see RG3 for the same reasons I don't think Carter would be picked. Sample size. I'm not a fan of rookie year super-hype. Sadly, it's looks like RG3 will turn out to be very good, but at this point, the hype far outweighs the production.

    Will Montgomery should be at C. Alfred Morris at RB. Remove Ryan Kerrigan. Did Jay Ratliff even play last year?

    I like most of it but RG3? Costa? Ratliff? Really? RG3 is a product of media hype and was at-best an average QB in a system that held his hand along the way. Costa... finished ONE game - one - last season. Rat looked decent last year when he was healthy but he isn't even the best DT on his own team; Jason Hatcher is. Period. Give me Romo or Eli at QB, Hatch at the DT spot and Kelce at C.

    He Must!

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than speak out and remove all doubt.

    Personally, I take Romo over both Eli and RGIII. In RGIII's case, though, it's only because of the injury. Hard to take a guy coming off a major leg injury and heading into just his second season to-boot.

    The best center in the NFC East is NOT Costa. Costa will be lucky to start at guard this year. Put a little more effort into it than that... how can the Cowboys have 9 of the all star players and go 8-8 3 years in a row?? Anthony Spencer is not an OLB and would struggle IMO at 4-3 OLB.

    Yeah... pretty silly with Spencer at 4-3 OLB. Although I wouldn't mind putting Carter at that OLB spot already.

    Also, Amukamura>Claiborne. And Antrel Rolle isn't all that great of a safety.

    Looking at the all pro selections, it's no wonder this division is always a close one. Really heavy in talent, but the entire division has holes in the same position. Weak OL, Weak secondaries

    I'd take Morris Claiborne, though I do think it's very close when Prince is healthy, but you definitely gotta go with the healthier guy (so far). In his first season, Morris has played 15 games, while on the other hand Prince has only played 20 games in his 2 seasons.
