I thought the division last year sucked. My God, it's even more pitiful this year. I'd be shocked if the Cowboys & Giants combined for 10 wins this year. The 2 of them played the "anything you can do, I can do worse" game.

But the Skins were the NFC east team that scored the least number of pts (6) in week 1. The Cowboys scored 17 pts and the Giants scored 14 pts. I find that shocking since the skins supposedly have RG3 and Desean Jackson. So it's look like the teams are ranked this way headed into week 2

Eagles
Cowboys
Giants
skins


BTW: I think the eagles and cowboys will flip flop between 1 and 2 all season

How well has Jones done since Jimmy Johnson left? Saying he is better than Millen isn't saying much. Millen didn't have the talent Jones has had, although he was to blame for that to a certain degree.

I agree! I didnt watch much of the Giants/Lions game(I just know about Eli's INTs and Cruz being non existent since he's in one of my FF leagues) but I did catch the Redskins game and they looked awful. I know Dallas looked terrible but I think theyll bounce back. The defense shows a tiny glimmer of hope compared to last yr & I am confident the offense will come through next wk vs Tennessee. It just amazes me how Dallas refuses to run the ball in critical moments.

Especially on 2nd goal on the 2nd line.

I was so annoyed with Romo on that play

Well he did win a championship without Jimmy but that of course was Jimmy's players. But Millen. Look up his track record. He makes Jerry look like he knows what he's doing. He destroyed the Lions. Jones from a constant point since 1997 has been the worse GM tho. The worst part about this is that he knows he isn't getting the job done. Once Romo runs out of time which could be after the 2015 season from an understanding and breakdown of the cap, it will be interesting to see how a 74 year old GM will approach this. Will he have the patience to build a team by himself.

So far the bEast has unfortunately lived up to the expectations of being awful again. If the Eagles don't win this division I wouldn't be shocked if the division leader has less than 8 wins.

cowboys-0-2
skins-0-2

So you think that the Redskins could very well lose to Jacksonville.

Yes the jags were able to score 17 pts on the road last Sunday d while the skins with rg3 and DeSean could not score a touchdown. So I believe the jags can pull it off but this week but I'm hoping rg3 can bounce back.
