The Perfect Day: NFC East Struggles, While Cowboys Relax

Hey guys, just some quick hits I wanted to deliver to you after a seemingly perfect bye week. The Cowboys obviously didn’t get to play this week to improve there chances of making the post season, but the NFC East did a good job helping them anyway. We’ll look at each team and give a real quick synopsis of what happened.

New York Giants- The Giants had the terrible task of trying to tame the New Orleans Saints at the Superdome. Here is the deal, the Giants haven’t played any talented teams yet, except for the maybe the Cowboys who they needed many mistakes and a late field goal to save them from defeat. Obviously they lost today, 48-27. Thanks in large part to the dominating Drew Brees who went 23-30 for 369 yards and 4 touchdowns. It was more the story of the Giants Defense that didn’t even show up. Bree’s saw minimal pressure and the secondary was awful. The Giants fall to 5-1 on the season with Arizona and Philadelphia up next.

Philadelphia Eagles- The Eagles are truly the shocker here, losing to the lowly Oakland Raiders. The Eagles defense didn’t even show up, so as they are soul searching, I’ll talk about the poor performance from the Eagles who couldn’t get anything together. I bet fans come up begging for the benching of McNabb and for him to be replaced by Kolb or Vick. Even though that benching would do nothing, Eagles fans don’t see it that way. They fall to 3-2 and have to face 3 straight NFC East games with Washington, New York, and Dallas on deck.

Washington Redskins- The Redskins accomplished what the Cowboys couldn’t last week, and that was being defeated by Kansas City. It was an ugly game, and that’s to be expected by the Skins these days. Things look to get worse for them, Campbell got benched and Jim Zorn is probably on his way out. Stay tuned. They are 2-4 and have Philadelphia and a Bye coming up.

All-in-all it was a good day for the Cowboys who got to relax this Sunday. Lets just hope that their preparations are good enough to defeat Atlanta coming up on Sunday, and send the Cowboys into good position in the NFC East. That’s all for tonight guys, hope you enjoyed your football.
