In their Super Bowl championship season, the Giants only went 3-3 in the NFC East, with a loss to the Eagles and two losses to last-place Washington.

That might not make running back Ahmad Bradshaw an expert, but he was asked for his opinions about the other teams in the division.

His observations on the Eagles were astute in their obviousness: “I think it might be a little bit of their defense,” he said. “I guess they were trying to come together with a lot of different people. Their offense is a great offense. You can't say too much about that. But I think it's their defense that really didn't come together.”

On the Redskins: “They have a great team. They beat us twice. I think they have a quarterback situation that hurt them a little bit. Their defnse is pretty stout with [London] Fletcher in the middle. He keeps them going.”

And then for the Cowboys, Bradshaw took his shot when asked whether Dallas could win a Super Bowl with quarterback Tony Romo:

"You know what, man, I don't see it happening," he said. "I don't think they believe it, and they're America's team.

"It all comes in together. If the fans don't believe it, the team doesn't. They're kinda doubtful with Romo."

The Eagles, by the way, were 5-1 in the division and 3-7 against the rest of their schedule.

Lynn to Raiders

Former Eagles secondary coach Johnnie Lynn will be hired as an assistant coach with the Oakland Raiders, according to Fox Sports.

Lynn spent this past season with the Eagles and then was fired. He was with San Francisco for the previous five seasons as defensive backs coach.
