    On the Fox halftime report they said they where going to discuss the NFC East, but my station went to the fricking local news.

    Can anyone give a recap of what Jimmy and Howie said?

    I could care less what Terry said.

    That's funny because Jimmy picked the Eagles (I think) not sure what Howie said, but TERYY PICKED DALLAS TO WIN THE EAST.:)

    The Eagles are flying (no pun intended) under the radar. They have the best QB, OL, and DL in the division and also have an excellent secondary. They have the weakest LB's, WR's, and RB's, so they will be hit and miss, but anyone who sleeps on them is being stupid.

    I agree and I expect Jim Johnson to get more out of his defense than he did last season. I know most of the focus was on McNabb and TO but I think the biggest problem Philly had was on the defensive side of the ball and I don't expect that to be the case this season.

    I would not call him the best but given the fact he was producing when he had no great WR I would consider him one of the better QB's in the league. He has thrown 134 TD to only 66 ints and has ran for 21 TD's. If there is one knock on him he has fallen apart in NFC championship games in the past but he has also lead his team to NFC Championship games.

    Worst head coach
    Secondary is NOT excellent (rather mediocre)
    QB.. not really an advantage (can't play a tough game)
    OL/DL is questionable

    but whatever.

    Obviously I love it when Dallas reigns supreme.

    But I also love it when we're simply playing great football and that is what I think may happen across the entire NFC East.

    I would much rather win a hard-fought game against quality competition than beat the pants off a weak football team.

    If we do our part in becoming a high quality team this year then I think its gonna be fun no matter how it turns out.

    There was nothing better than beating the Eagles (a high quality team) in their house, for the first time under Jimmy. It was 1991, K-Mart's punt return (with Holt's crushing block) was the clincher! Even though we ultimately got wiped out in Detroit in the playoffs, it was clear we'd arrived as a force to be reckoned with. Man that was fun!

    They have the best defensive ends without a doubt, but the team is very concerned about its DTs.

    I'm sorry, but anyone who thinks McNabb isn't the best all around QB in the East is missing something

    They are toying with a 4 end set for specific situations....That is very scary.

    I want to argue that...but I can't. Man I hate that guy. Any time I see him in an interview he has such an entitled attitude, it really bothers me.

    i think it's more of philly's offensive line being productive rather than mcnabb being one of the best QB's in the league, give mcnabb dallas' offensive line late last season and see how he fares..mcnabb's accuracy has always been questioned, especially when his OL doesn't hold up as well

    Couldnt agree more. And if you look at them closely they have the easiest first month of any of the teams.

    They get houston, tenn. and green bay 3 of the first 4 weeks. They get the second week giants game but it is at philly which will be rocking.

    I think Philly is going to start 4-0 and then give us the toughest game of the season in philly october 8th. If they win they will be 5-0 with 2 divisional wins.

    If they get to 5-0 their confidence will be through the roof.

    I think the thing holding them back possibly is the lousy linebackers they have. IF their DT's struggle again, those linebackers are in big trouble. Trotter is a monster against the run but if you get him in space with the tight ends in this division he is in trouble.

    I can see philly winning 9+ games for sure and maybe as many as 11.
