Which NFC east has the BEST offensive unit as a whole?
Im going to go with the Giants, then the Redskins in 2nd place. The skins have the best oline, but I think their WR set is a bit exaggerrated. Lloyd isn't that great at all, and Randle El is a glorified slot receiver. Al Saunders is vastly overrated (I have yet to see a coordinator run or catch a ball), I don't see how he is going to vastly improve a unit that was already pretty good.
I have concerns with Brunell's durability. And quite frankly, the skins first unit offense hasn't looked good at all in preseason. I think they have the best young RB of this group in Portis, but for this year alone I think Portis and Barber are equivalents. 2 years from now its Portis easy, but this year, its a tie or Barber gets the edge. Moss is a stud, but again, I have concerns about their qb. The oline is easily the best, followed by Philly's.
I expect Eli Manning to prove all the haters wrong and make the leap this year, Shockey is the best TE in the division imo, followed by Witten, Burress is solid, im not as high on him as others but he's still good. Toomer is a great possession receiver and Carter/Moss will stretch the defense. Ultimately its a tie talent wise, with the Giants getting an edge because I take Eli any day over Brunell. Even if Eli doesn't improve, the Eli of now is still better than the Brunell of now. But I highly doubt you won't see an improvement from Eli. He has a lot of haters, and I can't wait until he proves all of them wrong. Ive never seen a young qb get so much hate in my life.

That's because he's a *****. I don't like players demanding who can and cannot draft them, and I will never like Eli because of that. It's not like people just decided to dislike Eli, he brought it on himself.
As for his abilities as a player, he had a decent season last year. I think the people that hate on him go overboard but I think the people that defend him go way overboard too. At this point in his career his little better than mediocre and untill he makes that next step it's too presumptuous to assume that he will.
Brunell is old, and he has injury issues and was non-existent sometimes. Lloyd and Randle El are both a bit overrated.
Bledsoe is older, but this mostly falls on the O-line and injury prone RBs.
I think the Eagles should get more credit. They have enough WRs to be efficent, and McNabb and the O-line is excellent. I guess the RB and Wr position pull them down in most peoples eyes.
Giants have Eli, a developing QB, Tiki who is a solid Runner who can do it anywhere, and now a deep threat at WR in Moss, great tall guy in Burress, and just solid player in Toomer. I think the O-line isn't great, but it is underrated some.
At this point in his career his [sic] little better than mediocre and untill he makes that next step it's too presumptuous to assume that he will.
Manning lead his team to an 11-5 record and a division title, in one of the toughest division in football, in his first full year of starting. He had 3,762 passing yards, 24 TDs, and 17 INTs.
I'd say that he's more than just a "little better than mediocre."
And broke most Giant records for a qb in just his first year starting. If thats a little better than mediocre, whats mediocre?
I understand he gets alot of hate for what he did on draft day, and rightfully so, but like I said previously, if you hate Eli Manning, you have to hate John Elway as well. And most people who hate Eli, don't hate Elway which makes them hypocritical. I know bearsfan hates Elway as well, so he's not a hypocrite, but alot of people are.
