THIS IS A FANS OPINION: Sizing up the WR's in the NFC EAST JerseyJoe : 1:49 pm With the shift to a passing league more and more each year the WR position has become more important than ever before. With that said one of the biggest X-factors across the NFC will be just that : the WR. What makes it doubly interesting is the bevy of very young and/or unproven WRs throughout the division. All teams have a legit #1 except perhaps the Skins (as Moss looks a step slower and winding down) but the big key I think in this era is how many teams have guys who are potential studs at #2 or #3 spots. Philly: DeSean though young has already proven to be a stud and perhaps the best game breaking WR in the division. Now do the Eagles have another potential stud in Maclin? If so that tandem will be quite lethal and perhaps give the Iggles best passing attack in the division especially if Kolb is truly a good NFL QB (which unfortunately I think he will be). Dallas: Miles Austin emerged just in time as T.O. looked to be past his prime and shipped out. Don't know if Roy will ever play up to his immense potential so the big X Factor here IMO is Dez Bryant. Does he stud right away giving the ******** two studs at WR this year? Wash: Moss is a steady vet at this point who can get you an occasional big play but probably nothing more. Do their bevy of youngsters have a shot of becoming legit stud NFL recievers. I dont think so. I think they have the weakest WR corp out of all of us but perhaps Shanny with a legit NFL QB in McNabb can make them play better collectively and at least be adequate. Giants: We were dealt a moderate blow with the loss of Hixon. He was a guy who though not a constant big play guy, was a guy that other teams had to respect for his speed. However if Manningham makes the leap from inconsistent to more refined , we'll have perhaps stud WR in the fold. Manningham may have the best raw talent of all our guys but he seems a little slow to grasp our complex O. Further The route running needs work and the concentration lapses leading to quite a few drops. But if he puts it together this year he could be a great complement to Nicks and Smith and legit deep threat. Nicks . Yes it's still early but he has flashed plenty. I think this guy has Boldin like potential and we are going to see it THIS year. With Smith already proving he is a legit #1 (though not necessarily a deep threat game breaker type) We already have a pretty good passing game. If Manningham steps up, we could have the most dynamic attack in the division.
