2010 NFL Division Preview: NFC East

Yesterday I put up a post by Michael Wright that gave 15 thoughts he had about his New York Football Giants for this upcoming season. I hinted that my NFC East preview would be written in the near future so here it is. This is the third installment of my eight-part preview of the 2010 NFL season, breaking it down division by division. In each of these posts I will preview each team in the division and then at the end I will predict who will win the division and how the other three teams will end up behind them.

NFC South

NFC West

In the NFC East we have had a lot of drama this offseason. A face-of-the-franchise quarterback being traded to another team within the division. Big name veteran free agency signings. A team trying to bounce back from a disappointing 2009 season. A team trying to build on their first playoff win since 1996. We had a big name quarterback get bloodied in the preseason opener. There was a prima donna receiver refusing to carry pads. You get the idea. Let’s jump in.

Teams: Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins Continue reading

Colts Wish List

With the NFL Draft being just a few days away I thought it was time to put up my annual wish list for the Colts. There are a lot of different ways that the Colts could choose to go with this year’s draft so instead of simply putting down my wish list, I’m going to list who I will be happy with (realistically) at each pick and who I’ve heard we could be picked that would make me upset. We have eight picks this year (31, 63, 94, 129, 162, 238, 240, and 246 overall) and I think our biggest needs are o-line, d-line, outside linebacker, corner and safety. That’s not to say that we will necessarily draft somebody for each of those positions, Bill Polian and Co. usually throw in a surprise or two and usually draft with a “best player available” mentality. Either way, let’s get down to it: Continue reading

New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts

This is the ninth installment of my 11-part series, previewing each and every NFL playoff game this year. To read any of the other eight click on the appropriate link below:

Jets at Chargers

Cowboys at Vikings

Ravens at Colts

Cardinals at Saints

Packers at Cardinals

Ravens at patriots

Eagles at Cowboys

Jets at Bengals

The Jets need to play their absolute best football to win this game. Unfortunately for the Colts, that’s exactly what the Jets have been doing lately and on top of that the Jets seem to have luck on their side as well. For the Colts this will be a very similar game to last week, with one difference. The Ravens had a defense that excelled at stopping the run, and the Jets are a team that excels at stopping the pass but both are great overall defenses. The Jets and Ravens are essentially the exact same team offensively. Run first, pass minimally, young quarterback, one successful young running back and an effective veteran running back as well as a good full back. So if the Colts defense can have a similar performance to the one they put on last week the Jets will have a tough time scoring, therefore a tough time winning. Continue reading

Trade Rumors

Blockbusting trade rumors.

Rumors are going around on the internet that is a possible three way trade between the Denver Broncos, Arizona Cardinals, and Kansas City Chiefs. Continue reading

Where Might I Find Michael Vick in 2009?

Last year around this time I wrote a post (I’m actually just one week short of it being the exact same date) breaking down each team’s quarterback situation. You can check that out here. This post is going to be similar except it will be to specifically address whether or not each team has a need for Michael Vick and if they do, how much of a need it is. Some teams may need him simply because they need a quarterback, while others might be looking to use him in the Wildcat formation. Just today on ESPN.com’s NFL rumors section they said that the Redskins may be interested in Vick. I’d be interested as to what our commenter, Michael, who is a Redskins fan, thinks about this.

Brett Gardner: Now An Ass

Who is Brett Gardner? It doesn’t matter. All you need to know right now is that the picture below is of him (ok, no it’s not, but I sure wish it was) and that he’s my least favorite baseball player in the world. We’ll get to that later though.

In case you aren’t a frequent reader of WaB, the title of this post is a play on Bryan’s most recent post. Unlike that post however, the title of this one is a little deceiving. This is actually Part 3 in my “Weller’s becoming a baseball fan” series. The first one being about how I picked my team, and the second being about my first fantasy baseball draft. This one is about my Orioles laying the smack down on the Yankees in their first game of the season,  and what I learned from watching the game. I’ll start by explaining the title. Continue reading

Top Remaining NFL Free Agents

I’ve been meaning to do this for a few days now, but here it is. I’ve put together a list of the top free agents still available in the NFL. I’m only listing players that are unrestricted free agents, or players that were released. So this list does not include restricted free agents, or free agents that have been franchised. I’m putting up what team they were with in 2008 as well as what type of free agent they are.  I’m also listing them with how old they will be by September 1, 2009 so that we get an idea for how old they will be this season. It’s interesting to take note that of the 21 players I have listed, only three of them are under 30.  I’m listing them in a general order from best to worst, not based on how well they’ve done in the past but what kind of production I think a team would be able to get out of them this year. Here it is: Continue reading
