Which NFC East Quarterback Has The Most to Prove in 2012?


It is the off-season and time to start looking towards the start of the NFL season in just a mere 72 days.  Looking over the NFC East starting to stock up and once again become a major threat to the rest of the NFL, it leaves the question out there, which NFC East quarterback has the most to prove in this upcoming season.

Eli Manning, coming off of a Super Bowl year would be the front runner to have the most to prove.  A lot of experts and fans have said the Giants got lucky last year and got hot at the right time.  Most of the times, that’s what it takes to make these runs, getting hot at the right time and getting the team to gel.  With the Giants losing Manningham and that one-two punch with Brandon Jacobs going to the 49ers I think Manning is pretty safe from the proving he is a good quarterback with this upcoming season because he did win the Super Bowl last season.

Robert Griffin III is just coming to the Redskins as a rookie and more than likely the starter.  He does have some big shoes to follow with all the Redskins gave up to draft him.  He also is coming into a season a year after Cam Newton put up really big numbers and a few big wins for the Carolina Panthers and if he wants to be compared to the likes of Cam Newton then he is going to have to step up big behind a still not fixedWashingtonoffensive line.  But RGIII will get a little slack because of the questionable play calling of Kyle Shannahan and being a rookie.

Michael Vick signed a big 100 million dollar contract and we have yet to see him make it through an entire season without being hurt.  Vick has however, lead the Eagles the playoffs twice he seems to have a lot to prove not only Eagle fans but to their management that he can win and take them to the promise land.

Tony Romo is the Dallas Cowboys quarterback.  Of course he always has something to prove.  For someone who was undrafted and carry the stats he has would be a boon to any other organization but it is simply not enough being a Dallas Cowboys quarterback.  Dallas counts their quarterbacks as elite if they have rings.  So until Tony Romo gets a ring, he will always be the NFC East quarterback who needs to prove himself the most no matter what season we are going into but Michael Vick comes a very close second.
