The folks at FoxSports.com ranked the top 32 NFL organizations based on the following criteria: owner, front office, head coach, coaching staff, quarterback, offense, defense, intangibles. Each franchise received a score on a 1-10 scale. Regarding "intangibles," the folks at Foxsports.com said they included things such as fan support, stadium and public relations. Here's how the NFC East teams ranked:

3. Philadelphia Eagles -- Schein said he put the Eagles ahead of the Giants because of their coaching staff. 

4. New York Giants -- Apparently the new stadium helped in the "intangibles" category. 

12. Dallas Cowboys -- Jerry Jones received a 9.5 on a 10-point scale as an owner, but a 2.5 as general manager. The coaching staff received a 7, but head coach Wade Phillips received a 5. 

24. Washington Redskins (ouch!) -- Here's what Adam Schein said about the Skins: "I like Jim Zorn's staff with Greg Blache and Joe Bugel. It's Jim Zorn himself that made the ranking plummet. And Dan Snyder. And Vinny Cerato. Even a strong defensive grade couldn't save Washington."
