It can be a long empty time between the draft and the start of the season. This week alone I’ve seen more New York Giants > Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles to win the Super Bowl and Washington Redskins not to suck comments to last me a lifetime. In fact, it was this tweet from a Giants friend of mine that led to this weeks article.
If we pooled all the NFC East offensive players together, who would make the cut in your ultimate team?
Note: I’ve not included this years draftees as we’ve yet to see them in action in the NFL.
Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys
The decision at quarterback is solely between the Cowboys and Giants. Sam Bradford has only managed to play 60% of potential games in his career, and his influence on the Eagles remains to be seen. As for the Redskins and Robert Griffin III, he entered the league in the shadow of Andrew Luck and is at the back of the queue when it comes to signal callers in the NFC East.

When it comes to Tony Romo vs Eli Manning you’re usually met with the “how many rings has Romo won?” remark. Well how many rings has Dan Marino got compared to Joe Flacco? Which one of them is the better quarterback!?
Over the last five years Romo has consistently thrown more touchdowns, fewer interceptions with a better completion percentage and quarterback rating than Eli Manning. Compare their performances last season, there’s no reason why anyone would take Eli ahead of Tony.
DeMarco Murray, Philadelphia Eagles
With LeSean McCoy now plying his trade in Buffallo with the Bills there’s really only one leader for the running back spot here. Rashad Jennings is something of a journeyman, never really putting up big numbers. Alfred Morris is a solid productive back for the Redskins, but ahead of last seasons lead rusher? Despite the change of jersey, there’s only one winner here and that’s DeMarco Murray.
