The Athletic had an article where two writers from each of the four NFC East cities made their picks for 1st and 2nd team all-NFC East teams. They chose to have three WR, including a slot WR, and nickel D with a nickel CB and only two LB since that is the most common alignment.
They gave 2pts for 1st team and 1 PT for second and mentioned honorable mentions with no points where available (if all of the votes were made for only two players at a position, there would be no honorable mentions)
Us and DAL combined for a total of 46 points of the available 66, leaving only 20 for NYG and WAS.
We totaled 25 points to DAL 21 points, but they had 9 1st teasers to our 8. ST was not included.
Position by position, us vs. DAL:
Position.PHI, DAL QB - Wentz 1st, Prescott 2nd RB - none, Elliott 1st WR - Jefferey 1st, Jackson 2nd, Cooper 1st Slot - Agholar 1st, none TE - Ertz 1st, none LT - none, Smith 1st LG - Seamalu 2nd, none C - Kelce 1st, Frederick 2nd RG - Brooks 2nd, Martin 1st RT - Johnson 1st, none
DE - Graham 2nd, Lawrence 1st DT - Cox 1st, Jackson 2nd, none LB - Bradham 2nd, Smith 1st, Vanderesch 1st S - Jenkins 1st, McLeod 2nd, none CB - Darby 2nd, B. Jones 1st Nick CB - Maddox 2nd, A. Brown 1st
Us 8 1st, 9 2nds DAL 9 1st, 3 2nd
Honorable Mentions (DAL 6, PHI 1)
DE Barnett LB Lee CB Awuzie S Woods WR Gallup Slot WR Cobb RT L. Collins
Close in talent between these two teams. It won't be easy! Dougie P gives us an edge over Clappy.
I can't really argue with any of that. It's essentially a two-team division.
NY and Wash both have new highly drafted QBs, but Jones will likely get stuck behind Eli, and Haskins just discovered the fun of playing without an offensive line. What little I saw of Jones looked impressive. It's harder to evaluate what I saw of Haskins since he really wasn't getting much time before having to run or chuck it.
I will add one thing. Garrett is obviously coaching for his job this year so it will be interesting to see if that gets him to be a little less conservative.
