London Fletcher had a very entertaining teleconference with Eagles reporters today, and he was very honest about his assessment of the NFC East.
"The great thing about this year is that the NFC East is so terrible." said Fletcher. "You look at it and we're in Week (11), and our leader is 5-5. So even at 3-6, we're conceivably still in this thing."
"Every team has been so bad, nobody's really been able to separate themselves, so that's good for us. That's good for everybody (in the division)."
Fletcher was asked to rank the NFC East in order, from best to worst. Here's what he said:
- Eagles: "The Eagles are playing really good football right now. They're probably the top team in our division right now."
- Giants: "The Giants have won 3 in a row."
- Cowboys: "The Cowboys really struggled the other night against the Saints."
- Redskins: "Based on who's hot right now, you'd probably have to go Eagles, Giants, Cowboys, and then us, if I had to rank them."
As fans, we're always suckers for power rankings. It's interesting to get them from the perspective of someone actually in the race.
