Top Three QBs in the NFC East
September 6, 2012 by SBR Forum • Print Story •
The NFC East should again be one of the more competitive divisions in football, if not the most competitive. A big reason why is because of the strong quarterback play.
The top dog in the division has to be Eli Manning right now, considering he led the New York Giants to another Super Bowl victory last season. He may not be the single most talented quarterback of the four teams, but he's been the most successful. That's got to count for something.
Next up on the list would be Tony Romo and Michael Vick.
Romo gets a lot of flak for the Dallas Cowboys' recent failures, but a lot of the criticism has been unwarranted. He may not be a top-five quarterback, but Romo is certainly no slouch and is coming off a great year alongside Dez Bryant, Miles Austin, and Jason Witten.
As for Vick, it's all about staying healthy. This is a highly dangerous quarterback who can kill you with both his arm and his legs. Those injury worries are nothing to sneeze at though. Vick's already hurt himself during the preseason and you have to think it's only a matter of time before something more serious comes along.
Now that Robert Griffin III is starting for the Washington Redskins, the quarterback crop in the NFC East is really strong. Griffin III was drafted as the second quarterback in the draft and has looked good in limited preseason action.
The Redskins are going to be an intriguing team to watch, and you may want to hold off on taking them as one of your NFL picks, at least until we see what Griffin III is able to do in the nation's capital first.
As you can see, there's very strong quarterback play in this division.
