NFL Breaking Bad: Is NFC East Race Peyton’s Place?

Changing of the guard.
I got this!
I got this!

WASHINGTON, DC –  It’s that time of year again! A time for giving. Giving another team the NFC East Crown. To borrow a quote from Walter White, perhaps one of the owners in this division will proclaim:

I made a mistake. It’s my own fault. I had it coming. It’s all my fault. I’m sorry.”

Jerry Jones or Chip Kelly (he owns the Eagles, right?) just might be thinking those sentiments, but we will never hear them.

One game separates first place from the cellar with four games to go and the prognosticators are running rampant. If you want some great entertainment, tune in to a Philadelphia Sports radio station. An emotional roller coaster takes off each Monday. They hate Chip Kelly! Or do they?  Those Chuck Bednarik  jersey-wearing, scrapple-eating bozo’s literally shed tears when their Iggles drop a game. Pathetic losers!

Jerry’s Kids are creating a false sense of optimism for a faction of Cowboys fans, who actually believe that the Stars will align with Pluto, while Dallas sneaks up on their rivals.” Certainly an idiom for idiots! With Matt Cassell breaking a “without Romo” losing culturethe Cowboys head to Green Bay to saddle up against “Fat” Mike McCarthy’s Packers. Not an impossible task… if the Cowboys can avoid turnovers and unleash the “‘Kracken” on Aaron Rodgers. With the Jets, Bills and Redskins following, Dallas will be lucky if they win two more games.

Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins are currently enjoying the perch atop the division thanks to a Big Blue three game skid. Eli continues to create untimely opportunities……For the opposing defenses, shutting down Cousins is the key to victory.

Last but not least, the New York Giants of New Jersey,  were given the opportunity to run away with the East. Problem is that they do not have a running game. Leaving all the marbles with  Eli Manning is like leaving a pyromaniac alone with lighter fluid and matches!   The lead was charred over the last three weeks. The smoldering mess remaining is waiting for one of these teams to clean it up. Wait and watch…..

Changing of the guard.
Changing of the guard.

A word about the ” other Manning:”

Peyton Manning’s future may very well be selling pizza, as opposed to lining up under center for the Denver Broncos. Brock Osweiler – at three wins and zero loses in relief – cannot be ignored. With free agency looming, the horses must strike now and the backup is getting the job done. Not the way he wanted to go out, but that’s the reality of football. It’s win now or your job will be Not For Long!

Chime in with your predictions and come back for more tomorrow.
