    I actually expect Cowboys to have a rebound year and win division with Eagles close 2nd

    I picked the Eagles, but it's worth noting this division rotates winners like no other.

    I actually expect the Skins to finish dead last this year honestly with downgrade at QB and generally a very meh to underwhelming roster

    The Eagles look like the easy choice here on paper. The Giants and Cowboys could surprise if things go right but I really don't trust Eli or Dak's supporting cast and defense.

    Some would tell you the QB situation was an upgrade

    RB is up and coming, lot of hype on Guice

    Eagles easily, but not as easily as last season. They brought pretty much everyone of importance back and should be even better if Wentz can rebound from his ACL tear.

    I don't think anyone else in the division has the pieces to overcome their schedules (Dallas in particular has a pretty rough slate getting the NFC South, AFC South and a Lions team that will likely be a pain in the butt)

    The Giants are a question mark and the Redskins roster is laughable. Alex Smith on a roster with no running game and nothing at WR. Jordan Reed might ball out for like 2 weeks before he gets the first of his annual 29 concussions.

    I'm liking the look of my Skins this year. A lot of talent throughout the team it's just a matter of staying healthy at this point. Also the stabilizing veteran presence of Smith at QB seems to be doing wonders already in camp. Got high hopes for the season.

    I think the Redskins make the surprise leap this year. Smith protecting the ball will help keep the D off the field. The D is also greatly improved. They also finally have a solid running back hopefully.

    Building through the lines too. Oline and Dline could be pretty solid.

    I'd agree. I think they could just as easily finish last in the division if key parts are injured. If history shows anything it is that this team is often hurt and hurt bad. Hopefully a healthy year is upon us.

    Went with the Eagles but this division is often a toss up with a somewhat surprise winner

    That is not correct

    Bears won NFC North in both 2005 (11-5) and 2006 (13-3)
    Vikes won NFC North in 2008 (10-6) and 2009 (12-4)
    Packers won NFC North in 2011 (15-1) , 2012 (11-5) , 2013 (8-7-1) and 2014 (12-4)

    43, An hour earlier, u were posting your optimism about the 2018 Redskins.. Guess u gotta hedge your expectations.
    My opinion, Washington has a mediocre coach, terrible ownership and front office, & they now have a QB on his back nine. Teams that are plagued with injuries often have poor conditioning, etc. I think at one point Gruden had hired his nephew as a weight trainer (?)
    The whole franchise is a comical & tragic amateur-hour. I remember & miss Redskin' glory days.. (Hail)

    The heart says anything is possible and the playoffs could happen with a healthy roster. The team is solid throughout and they show glimpses of being great but are often hurt and inconsistent. The brain says the team will be similar to prior years and be mediocre. The reality is it could go either way. I'm optimistic but have moments of doubt as most Skins fans do!

    Hard to say tbh.
    Me being a Giants fan, I’m curious to what they have in store this season.

    The Giants are garbage and have the worst offensive coordinator in the league....he won't use the players that he has properly. Shula runs the most predictable offense in the league.

    Cowboys fan saying Eagles. I can't pick my team until I see how the WR thing plays out. I really like the rest of the roster though. I expect the OL to rebound back to top 2 or 3 again with Connor Williams stepping in at LG. Defense seems pretty solid.

    Eagles just have that monster DL I don't see it regressing so they should stoll be good

    The biggest question facing the Cowboys over this season is figuring out what to do with Dak Prescott. The Cowboys are going to face a decision this coming off-season. Do they give him a big money extension, or do they decide they need to find another QB?

    Here's a great read on the decision and what we know about who Dak is right now:

    Is there an NFL player with more at stake in 2018 than Dak...

    I think that the Eagles unfortunately win the East again, marking the first time that the NFC East champion has repeated since the 2001-2004 Eagles. It's always tough to predict this division, but the Eagles seem to be set up for a run of long-term success with Wentz at quarterback. I think that the Cowboys finish second, and Washington/Giants will be fighting for 3rd place.
