The Cowboys come into the 2010 season as the clear favorite out of the NFC East.  They were the team that took the risk and drafted WR stud Dez Bryant, and will place him into an already powerful offense.  The defense should continue to shut down the run, and keep quarterbacks off balance with Demarcus Ware leading the defensive attack.  Opposing defenses will have trouble to stop the run as Barber, Jones and Choice will all split the carries and stay fresh as they all do their part to tire out the defense.  Romo should put up similar numbers as last year (4483 yards 26TDs and 9INTs) with a strong receiving core in Austin, Witten, Bryant and Williams.

New York Giants

Key Acquisitions: Antrel Rolle, Jason Pierre Paul, Keith Bullock, Deon Grant

Key Losses: Antonio Pierce, Fred Robbins, Kevin Dockery, Jeff Feagles

After a 5-0 start last season, the New York Giants finished the year 8-8.  For the most part the offense did their part but a weak defensive secondary really hurt the team.  This offseason they went out and signed safety Antrel Rolle who should pair up nicely with Kenny Phillips if he can return from injury, not to mention shut down corner Corey Webster.  Veteran Keith Bullock should help solidify the LB position and be a leader in the clubhouse.  On the offensive side, Eli Manning should continue to improve, as he tries to built on his chemistry with his young promising WR core in Steve Smith, Mario Manningham and Hakeem Nicks.  If the Giants can get their run game going with Jacobs and Bradshaw, the Giants should be a Wild Card contender this season.

Philadelphia Eagles

Key Acquisitions: Ernie Sims, Darryl Tapp, Mike Bell, JJ Arrington

Key Losses: Donovan McNabb, Brian Westbrook, Sheldon Brown, Shawn Andrews, Will Witherspoon

It's going to be a new Eagles team in 2010, as there will be no Donovan McNabb or Brian Westbrook leading the offense.  Kevin Kolb looked like an up and coming QB in his two starts last season, and looked very comfortable throwing to speedy wide out Desean Jackson and will also look to get Jeremey Maclin involved in the pass game.  He has plenty of options to help him get comfortable with a big target in Brent Celek, and also has a young running back in LeSean McCoy to help lead the way.  The Eagles always have a tough gritty defense and although they have lost some key pieces over the year, still look for them to rattle some offensives during the year.

Washington Redskins

Key Acquisitions: Donovan McNabb, Larry Johnson, Willie Parker, Trent Williams, Jammal Brown, Artis Hicks, Phillip Buchanon, Adam Carriker, Vonnie Holliday, Joey Galloway, Maake Kemoeatu

Key Losses: Jason Campbell, Chris Samuels, Randy Thomas, Antwaan Randle El, Cornelius Griffin, Rock Cartwright

Just like the Eagles, the Redskins will look very different this season.  The Redskins made a lot of moves to improve their roster and try to compete in a tough NFC East.  Donovan McNabb will take over for Jason Campbell, and Larry Johnson and Willie Parker will compete with Clinton Portis for carries.  They went out and got a lot of veteran players, but I don't think they got anybody who will really be a difference maker to get them out of the basement in the East.  Their roster looks good on paper, but unfortunately they play 6 of their games against 3 better football teams.
