In case you missed it, Adam Schein of FoxSports.com recently ranked all 32 organizations in the league based on "owner, front office, head coach, coaching staff, quarterback and intangibles -- a combo of fan support, facilities, stadium and PR." You'll be pleased to know that the NFC East had a strong showing in Schein's rankings, which are highly subjective:
10. New York Giants
It's pretty remarkable how the hiring of Mike Shanahan and Bruce Allen has completely changed the perception of the Redskins from a national perspective. Here's what Schein said about his Skins ranking:
Surprised? Actually, I am, too. But then again, Washington replaced the running jokes of Jim Zorn, Vinny Cerrato, a bingo caller and Jason Campbell with Mike Shanahan, Bruce Allen, Kyle Shanahan and Donovan McNabb. And you have to credit Dan Snyder (yes, I just wrote that) for locking himself in the closet and letting Shanahan and Allen run the show. This past offseason proved Snyder is over his spendthrift ways.
So do you think these rankings are fair? Both the Cowboys and Giants have built billion dollar stadiums in tough economic climates. I could see them being ranked a little higher than ninth and 10th. And with the way the Eagles crashed and burned at the end of the season (and the McNabb trade), do we truly believe they're the sixth best organization in the league right now?
