Lets Stop Hating the Cowboys, Redskins, and Giants

C’mon guys. Every week during the NFL season (and even the offseason), we spend a good chunk of our time hating on the ‘Boys, the ‘Skins, and the G-Men. When these teams are in the playoffs, you would rather see ANY other team in the league beat them, as long as these guys don’t make it to the next round! But for a little while, the lovely people at Fansided are going to take time to put down our hateful words and work together. Crazy talk, right? I know you’re asking “what’s the the heck is he talking about?” (with a few astericks and other symbols in there).

Here’s the game plan folks: Each team’s fan site in Fansided’s NFL Blog Network will be working with the other teams in their respective NFL division. I’ll be working with the guys at The Landry Hat, GMEN HQ, and Riggo ‘s Rag to compile what we believe is the best starting roster made up of the combination of all 4 NFC East teams. An NFC-East All-Star Team.

But we’re going to need your help! We’re not always going to be able to put our team colors away to decide who should start on our All-Star team. So when we lock horns and can’t decide, we put it to vote! I’ll link you to a poll on Riggo’s Rag where you can vote for the position we can’t decide. The guy with the most votes will become the starter.

When doing this, we ask you to keep the best interests of the All-Star team in mind. Why you ask? Because like I said earlier, every division in the Fansided Network will be doing the same thing. Once all the All-Star teams are created, we will all compete head to head until only one Division is left standing. This division will earn the title of being Best in the NFL.

We all know the NFC East is the tighest, most highly competitive division in football. Now we just need to make the rest of the world know this.

Stay tuned for more updates, and please tweet me @InsidetheIggles or leave a comment to this post to let me know some Eagle names you think are sure things on the NFC East All-Star team.

    Eagles deserving to be all-division:

    Desean Jackson
    Leonard Weaver
    Brent Celek
    Jason Peters
    Trent Cole
    Jamaal Jackson (?)
    Stewart Bradley (?)

    ? = maybe not eligible due to injury

    I also think the argument could be made that Avant is the best possession receiver in the division.

    Real solid list Eric. Would you keep Ratliff at DT if we decided to use a 3-4? No Haynesworth even if you try to ignore the diva-ness? Who would be your 2 DT’s if we run a 4-3?

    I just noticed there is no reply and no edit/delete options.

    I imagine I would. This is complete conjecture, but I would think it’s easier for a good NT to move to a 4-3 DT than it is for a 4-3 DT to move to a NT.

    Honestly, Haynesworth is great, but it wasn’t too far-fetched to believe he would dip down when getting a big contract. You can’t dispute his talents. I guess for a theoretical team you should include him, but this team is based on actual performance in the NFC East. And he’ll just never be that guy with his big contract.
