Eagles Road To NFC East Division Title In Jeapordy

Is it possible the Eagles’ road to the NFC East Division Title in jeopardy? It’s old news that Philadelphia Eagles former wide receiver DeSean Jackson is now with the Washington Redskins. It’s also old news that the Redskins are now a big threat to the NFC East. Prior to Jackson’s move to Washington the Eagles still looked like the team to beat in the NFC East. There really was very little question of that fact. However, with Jackson’s move to Washington brings a new concern.

Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin, III, RG3 had a rough outing last season. It was so dismal his coach benched him. Toward the end of the season RG3 began looking like more like a diva than a quarterback in a sophomore slump. His decisions were bad and ill-timed. To me, he even looked a bit like a coach killer. Will a dynamic pro-bowl wide receiver make a difference?

On paper they look lethal. In real life? Hard to say. Both Jackson and RG3 are divas and love the spotlight? Is there enough of the spotlight to go around? I think there will be trouble in paradise. With Jackson’s locker room troubles he could pose more of a problem than a solution for the Redskins’ troubles.

Tell us what you think?

Here is today’s poll question. 

Are the Redskins a serious threat with Jackson in their lineup?

    They talk about the offence of Washington but no one has yet talk about there sad defence I mean RG3 showed so Lil and to honest isn’t as good as they all see him. I look at him as a one year wonder.

    RG3, much like Vick, is at his best when he breaks the game plan, and just puts it all on his shoulders. His legs wouldn’t let him do that last year, but as he creeps closer to 100% health he will return to form. But also like Vick, that gamebreaker instinct that leads to so many spectacular plays, also leads to time on the trainers table. It will be interesting, no doubt. 9 wins could take the division if we all just beat up on each other all year.
