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.

Big games, Bright Lights: NFC West Week 1 Preview

NFC West/AFC West

By Dayna O’Gorman // @DaynaOG

I’ve written before how the NFC West is considered one of, if not the most competitive divisions in football. The first week of the 2020 season should highlight why so many see it that way.

A divisional matchup, a game against an NFC favorite, and a mentor/mentee coaching battle, early games, late games, primetime games…Week 1 has a lot going on for all four teams. And in this division, one that could be decided by a very small margin, every game counts. Let’s take a look around Week 1 in the NFC West.

NFC East 2020 Preview

Sonja Greenfield, Senior NFL Reporter NFC North, NFC East

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.

ProFootball Hall of Fame Class of 2020: Jimmy Johnson

Lisa Johnson
AFC South AFC East Reporter

By Lisa Johnson // @LJ1303

What more could one write that hasn’t already been written about Coach Jimmy Johnson?

Besides building arguably one of the greatest football teams in the history of the NFL, with the players like Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman and all-time NFL rushing leader Emmitt Smith, Coach Johnson led the Cowboys to two Super Bowls, winning back to back titles in 1992-1993.

Those that have known Coach Johnson personally will tell you straight away, that everything Jimmy Johnson does, he does 110%. Failure isn’t an option for this coach. This goes as far back as Johnson’s playing days at the University of Arkansas where he won a National Championship with the team in 1964.

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

Dayna O’Gorman
Senior NFL Reporter
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.

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.
