    I sure hope you’re right! But that defense has to step up, particularly some push from the D line. The O line is another big question mark. Those have to be solid and we need key players at shallow positions to stay healthy this year. Injuries happen but also end a season …..

    It’s hard to say. The NFC East is a tough division. In fact, it has produced more Super Bowl champions than any other division.

    I think the Giants will be hard to beat. They’re confident after having overcome all odds to win last year. It’s hard enough to win one Super Bowl. It’s even harder to repeat. Let’s see, Packers, Steelers, 49ers, Cowboys, Patriots. Those are the only teams I can think of that have won back-to-back. I don’t know if the Giants will join that illustrious list, but I do believe they will be in the hunt.

    The Eagles will be a threat, but I don’t see them winning the division.

    The Redskins will be improved, but I don’t see a rookie quarterback making much noise.

    The Cowboys simply have to stop fading in the fourth quarter and failing in December to have any chance of making the playoffs. It’s sad but true. I’ve always said that you don’t start winning until you get tired of losing. Maybe this team is at that point. We shall see.

    The road to the Super Bowl begins with winning the division. Win and you’re in. Otherwise, you have to depend on what other teams do to determine your fate. And you can’t depend on other teams.

    It’s going to be an interesting season.

      I see the Eagles winning the division if Vick doesn’t cough the ball up like he did last year. The Giants will be a little better on defense if only because of their confidence and that’s not good. Eli is the question mark for me. Does he play the way he has throughout most of his career or the way he did down the stretch last year? Can’t count on the Redskins beating them twice again this year!

      My question mark is while we improved some on defense is it enough to close the gap with the Eagles & Giants. O-4 last year and we need at least 3-4 division wins to make the playoffs. Tall task with a revamped O line and a D line with no changes?

      Miami won back to back in 72 & 73 — Denver won back to back in 97 & 98

    Teddy Bruschi you are once again off your rocker. I expect to see your name in a concussion law suit in the near future.

    If we use spygate we are a sure thing for the playoffs but we aint going out like that ya feel me.

  5. It makes no sense what he said. If our team had improved dramatically on defense, and we were a play or two to make the playoffs last year….what is this idiot talking about?!!

    A lot of folks are over lơoking ONE very important change on our team…our middle linebackers!!! That was the Achilles heel for us last year believe it or not. We CAN NOT get off the field because we are repeatedly being burned on 2nd and 3rd down with James and Brooking on the field. Now, things are going to change because of the speed we have in our linebackers. Opposing offensive coordinators are no longer game planning around our weakness like last year. Yes, yes, i know our secondary was the worst but our linebacking corp in the middle was one of the main culprit that we stank it up last year.

    We are play off bound this year if i am a betting man.

      Jonathan, excellent pick up on the middle linebackers in Bradie and Brooking last year. Lost in the shuffle there was the fact that in the beginning of the season the D actually was decent. The down hill path hit when Lee busted his hand and we saw more of both Bradie & Brooking out there. Lee was so effective getting some props as D player of the week, type of thing. But Bradie & Keith were easy pickings in the passing game and having been a step slower they couldn’t close on running plays. So many weaknesses played into hurting us constantly in down and distance. A real inability to get off the field. I’m hoping for Carter to get the nod along side of Lee. Faster, more athletic and younger. Connor might be alright, but I want more upside and I’m in favor of getting this young man the experience. We don’t do that and we’ll be facing another player who doesn’t develop.

    • Glenn says:

      Sadly, that D line doesn’t appear to be any better and it was dreadful last year. Your point brings out the reality that all 3 levels on the defense had sub par performances. We’ve improved the corners, but safety is virtually unchanged. We’ll have two new ILB’ers (including #3 rotating) but the D line is unchanged other than a rookie here or there. Playoffs, hopeful, but I need to see the 2 lines and how they perform.
