It's too soon to say. That doesn't stop sports handicappers from projecting how the NFL 2010 season will end. Football tout Vernon Croy is the latest to offer something, in this case his final standings of the NFC East:
- Dallas Cowboys -- 10-6
- Philadelphia Eagles -- 10-6
- New York Giants -- 8-8
- Washington Redskins -- 6-10
I never heard of Croy. Even if he's the smartest man in football, isn't it too soon to say?
The Cowboys had the best finish in 2009. The Redskins made the best moves of the offseason. But that's just on paper. Football isn't played on paper. It's played on television.
Can we, like, see a preseason game before we project how the regular season will play out?
I like a lot of the moves of Dannyhan's first season. Oh yes, boys and girls, the Danny is still in the background. But Washington hasn't paid stupid money to another over-hyped star from somebody else's team who will save the season. They have brought in a lot of older players who might be role contributors, or who might be another bust.
For my part, I'm going on the assumption that the moves thus far brought the Redskins back to level ground; meaning the Skins have a shot at 8-8. It's not like we're saying Super Bowl for sure. Nor are we saying that they sure won't be there either.
We just want to see these guys on this roster run plays from this playbook in a game before drawing any conclusions. Until then, we don't know jack.
