I got the power: NFC East power rankings

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Like I said last week, I’ve never really been a huge fan of power rankings.  They’re meaningless, to be honest.  It’s essentially who’s hot and who’s not.

But when I do them, I love to have fun with it, and not take them too seriously.  For the most part.  I think a mixup of funny and serious is good.

Without further ado, I present the NFC East Power Rankings going into week 2.

Grading the NFC East, Week 1

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Week 1 is in the books!  And that means school is back in session… which makes this post pretty much a gimme! The NFC East teams all faced each other opening week, so that makes it easy to grade.  Oh, and I grade on a curve in case you’re wondering.  Curves saved my grades a few times, so I’m returning the favor.

It was an eventful offseason for all teams in the division. Signings, hold outs, quarterback controversies, and more. But finally getting to play always makes it that much better.

Philadelphia Eagles:  I’ll give them an A-.  After a very, very slow start and the defense looking not great, the Eagles came alive. Quarterback Carson Wentz went on to have a day, along with returning wide receiver DeSean Jackson, and WR Alshon Jeffrey. The Eagles came back from being down 17-0 to get the win. I guess the best way to put it is that sometimes you just need to get back into the flow of regular season games.

Zeke Elliott to sit out entire 2019 season?

Kate Arhar
Senior Sports Editor

By Kate Arhar // @ClvlndK8 

ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported this morning that Dalla Cowboy running back Ezekiel Elliott will sit out the entire 2019 season if he doesn’t get a contract extension.

While we knew he was “vacationing” in Mexico and not attending training camp, I don’t think anyone believed that he wouldn’t eventually get himself to Dallas.

But he reportedly told Cowboys owner Jerry Jones back in January that he wouldn’t play a single game without an extension and regardless of how many fines the team/league heap upon him, it sounds like he was serious.

Which I find to be shameful behavior!

Checking in on the Dallas Cowboys

Dayna O’Gorman
Senior NFL Reporter

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

Its not something we are used to. Traditionally using the word quiet and Jerry Jones in the same thought isn’t something you do. However, from the outside looking in, this off-season seems to have been somewhat quiet for the Dallas Cowboys. I decided to check in with David Howman, writer for bloggingtheboys.com, to see what was going on in Jerry’s world.

Talking about the off-season, David agreed that, from the outside, it may look like there hasn’t been much going on in Dallas. However, they have been busy.

“It was a very productive offseason for the Cowboys but not in the way most expect. They have a new offensive coordinator in Kellen Moore who should be upping the creativity and they added some low risk, high reward free agents while focusing on giving their own star players contract extensions.”

Checking in on the NFC East quarterbacks

Sonja Greenfield Senior NFL Reporter

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Last week I looked at the quarterbacks of the NFC North to preview what their 2019 season may look like. Apparently, you guys liked it, so I’m going to keep that train moving.  This week I’m going to take a look at the quarterbacks of the NFC East.

Overall, it’s been a pretty quiet offseason for the NFC East. Outside of the Giants and the Eagles making some blockbuster moves, it’s been pretty calm in terms of free agency.

This week I ask, what will 2019 look like for the NFC East Quarterbacks? And it’s a dubious situation, to say the least, unlike the NFC North, where barring injury, the quarterbacks are pretty solid.  Here in the NFC East, it’s not quite the same.

Romo as OC in Dallas could help Prescott

Wanda Wiedman,
NFL Reporter

By Wanda Wiedman // @WandaW63

The Dallas Cowboys made it to the Divisional Round only to see their season end against the Los Angeles Rams, finishing with a 10-6 record and champions of the NFC East.

Despite the demands of some fans and media analysts that believe it is time for head coach Jason Garrett to go (including myself), there is someone who could take the offensive play calling to a whole different level. That someone is former Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo.

Romo was ousted out of his job as signal caller in Dallas after an injury in preseason paved the way for then rookie, Dak Prescott to earn the coveted job. After a spectacular rookie season in 2016 and a 13-3 record, Romo knew his time in Dallas was over. He was even seen on the sideline of the final game saying, “Wow, it is his time.”

Dallas Cowboys: 5 Quick Questions

Lisa
Official Reporter Miami Dolphins

By Lisa Johnson // @LJ1303 

The Dallas Cowboys used to be “America’s Team.” With great names like Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin and Emmitt Smith in the not-so-distant past, and disappointing seasons from the likes of Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, the pressure is definitely on for Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott to lead the team back to glory.

I took some time to talk about the upcoming Cowboys season with Michelle Jinks // @TheSportsJinks who is a huge Cowboys fan and, well, She Knows Routes!

Packers Head To Jerry’s World

By Sueli Loiola // @Su_firstavenger

On the last Thursday Night Football Game in September, we saw a dominant game by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and all the crew.

Rodgers has said that he’s very proud of the team during an interview and he should be.   The offensive production has increased which means that Rodgers is accurate and his receivers are  confident on the field.   In other words, the offense is ready, willing and able to make it happen.  Of course Rodgers and company work very hard on during the off and regular season, week in and week out. Since they work so hard, they’re a well oiled machine.  It’s hard to fail when you are a well oiled machine.
