By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

So, let’s take a second to think about this here. There was no preseason. 3 of the 4 teams in the NFC East have new head coaches. There have to be some growing pains, right?  Let’s look back on the week that was!

NFC East power rankings

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

You know me, I like to do power rankings.  I feel like they’re totally useless, and are essentially a hyped-up version of “Who’s Hot and Who’s Not” when the more established columnists/sites do them.

I, on the other hand, like to have fun with them when I do them and bring in some interesting/different reasons for why I rank the teams the way I do.  But you know me, and I enjoy doing things for fun.  So, as we kick off Week 1 in the NFL, here’s how I have the NFC East looking.

NFC East 2020 Preview

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

We’re only days away from the start of a new season, and it’s time to check out the NFC East.  This go ’round, I went ahead and asked some fans how they are feeling. I like to do that every now and then. It allows me to interact with old and new friends, plus get a different perspective on the teams.

I checked in with some great people to give me their thoughts on how their team will do this season. I asked how they feel the season will go, predict the team’s record, and then someone who they feel will stand out this season.

An eventful offseason in Washington

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

Look, it’s been a long quarantine for everyone.  I mean, I haven’t gotten my hair done since January.  Yes…January.  It’s not pretty y’all.

But it’s been even longer for the new Washington Football Team.

Let’s start with the much-needed name change. If there is one thing in life we all know well, it’s that money talks. After years of back and forth about the name of the team, Fed Ex put Dan Snyder’s team on notice, and good for them. Change your name or lose our money. The name was offensive, and regardless of how you feel, the name was a slur. It needed to change.

What does 2020 have in store for the NFC East

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

The 2020 schedule was released last night, and right on time.

In the midst of all that’s going on in the world, it at least gives us some semblance of normalcy.  Even if we’re still unsure what the NFL will look like come fall.

But let’s look at what 2020 could mean for the teams in the NFC East.  Aside from teams in their division, the NFC East will face the AFC North and the NFC West.

So, some pretty tough competition in and out of their division.

Coaching Carousel 2020

NFC West / AFC West

By Dayna O’Gorman //@DaynaOG

As we head into January 2020, teams that didn’t make the playoffs need to look inward to see what went wrong. Every season there are changes that have to be made, changes that probably should be made then aren’t, and changes that feel like they change a franchise. Often those changes start with the head coaches.

Being a head coach in the NFL is a very hard job. Something only a large handful has been able to execute well. Teams are constantly on the lookout for “the guy”. The one that will be there for years, bringing success to the franchise. This year, we have 4 teams, possibly 5, that are once again on the hunt for a new head coach. Let’s take a look at who they may hiring.

By Sonja Greenfield // @Mom23RN

While most of us were either sleeping off our hangovers or just coming in from celebrating our rocking New Year’s Eve, Washington was making things official with their new head coach Ron Rivera. The hiring comes after former head coach, Jay Gruden was fired after an 0-5 start to the season and was replaced temporarily by Bill Callahan.

Change is coming to the NFC East

Well, the season came to an end for 3 of the 4 teams in the NFC East on Sunday.

And with the end came a firestorm of change in the division.  Well, sort of.

There’s been a lot of build-up, but we’re still waiting.

The NFC East playoff picture

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

The NFC East. The only division in the NFL that a team has neither clinched a playoff spot or a division title.

At the beginning of the season, when Dallas was on a hot streak, one would have thought that they would easily run away with the division. But a 3 game losing streak sort of set their hopes and dreams of playoff contention back a bit.

And let’s not forget the Eagles, who at the beginning of the season were sort of lackluster and have fans questioning if they should have let quarterback Nick Foles go. They have now rattled off 3 wins in a row, to still keep them in the running for the division title.

The NFC East Walter Payton Man of The Year nominees.

By Sonja Greenfield //@Mom23RN

It’s that time of year again. The time where the NFL starts to dole out their awards and hashtag campaigns kick into high gear. The Pro Bowl rosters have been announced, so the #ProBowlVote is done. But now the hashtag that will fill up your timeline until the day before the Super Bowl will be #WPMOY.

The Walter Payton Man of the Year. This is probably one of my favorite awards in all of sports. I don’t think there’s another major sport that has an award like this. (Please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong). It’s nice to recognize the players that are working hard in their various communities. It’s right up there with My Cause, My Cleats.
