" State of the Division: The NFC East Heading Into Week Five "
Well, what a difference two weeks makes. The Giants are now playing the worst football in the division -- hands down -- after the performances of the Redskins, Cowboys and Eagles this week. Dallas and Philly won convincingly, while Washington pulled off a comeback against the best defensive unit in the league. The G-Men have now gotten absoultely pasted in three straight games, and the only thing holding the season together is a miraculous 4th quarter against Philadelphia (although they inched realistically close to an even more miraculous 4th quarter against Seattle.)

What can I say? Everything is going to depend on how New York comes out against Washington. The Giants need to go no huddle, put something on the board during their first possession, and then put Washington three and out.. it would really do wonders in the morale department. If we end up getting into and losing a grudge match against the 'Skins, I'm not sure this team is going to the playoffs. I know it's pretty early to start talking that way, and I know my temperment was a lot more upbeat as few as two weeks ago, but a lot his changed.. 1-3 and a divisonal loss would be a major obstacle to overcome. I know the G-Men are past that rough Indy-@Philly-@Seattle stretch, but it really doesn't get much easier, and it's going to be that way for the entire season.

Something's gotta give, and by the time New York kicks off against Washington next Sunday, Tom Coughlin and company will have had two weeks to figure out what that is.

You know I'm an Eagles fan and I loved what I saw last night from McNabb(although not the rest of the offense)... That said, the most impressive NFC East win this past week was the Skins. Their offense has been pretty anemic so far and they put on quite a performance against one of the best defenses in the business.

The Dallas and Philly wins were dominant, but the Cowboys beat maybe the worst team in football and the Eagles beat a team that's only a little better.

i agree with you.. the fact that the skins put up more than a thirty spot against jacksonville is pretty insane, and that's going to make it even more important for the giants to come out swinging next sunday.
