The New York Giants play in what is perhaps the flashiest division in the NFL. There are offensive superstars all over the NFC East. The Giants will certainly have their work cut out fore them. The Giants have two meetings against Tony Romo and his favorite receiver, Dez Bryant. The Giants have to slow down Desean Jackson twice per season when they do battle with the Washington Redskins. The Giants also have to slow down DeMarco Murray who stayed in the division moving to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The NFC East is never boring. This is especially true with all the headlines that Eagles’ coach Chip Kelly has made this offseason. The Eagles have been on a roller coaster of an offseason. Kelly has not been afraid to ruffle feathers as he has dealt star players elsewhere. LeSean McCoy even accused Kelly of being racist (which was a ridiculous and spiteful claim) as he was traded to the Buffalo Bills. With all the Eagles headlines, combined with the Cowboys nabbing of La’el Collins after the draft and Jason Pierre-Paul’s firework mishap, it’s hard to find a more interesting division.
The first thing we need for this theoretical All NFC East team is a head coach. There is no doubt in my mind that Tom Coughlin should receive this honor. If you took the two Super Bowl rings off of Coughlin’s resume, it would still look more impressive than Kelly’s, Jason Garrett’s or Jay Gruden’s resume. Coughlin is the most accomplished coach of the NFC East and you know exactly what to expect from him. Now that the All NFC East team has a coach, let’s get a quarterback.
