The Case Against The NFC East NFC East football fans recently enjoyed the best division in the sport, with the New York Giants winning multiple Super Bowls, Philadelphia Eagles competing for championships yearly, and the Dallas Cowboys having their moments as well. But recent seasons have seen those positives disappear, with nothing but doubt surrounding those clubs. For the New York Giants, poor coaching and execution have been the issues, with the team losing both of their first two games despite leading both by double digits in the fourth quarter. For reference, they are the only team in the history of the league to manage to lose their first two games in such a fashion. Philadelphia, meanwhile, has seen head coach Chip Kelly come in, try to change the entire roster of quality players, swapping in players of lesser quality to fit his specific strategy, only for the players he brought in to perform poorly, losing each of their first two games. Kelly now needs to hope things turn around, or the blame will be squarely on his shoulders. In Dallas, things aren’t horrible yet, as the team has two wins and no losses. But injuries to quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant will be an issue as both are out for long periods of time. Also worth mentioning here is the fourth team in the division, the Washington Redskins, who are easily the most dysfunctional franchise in all of professional sports, which fits the motif of this division to the letter.
