NFC East All-Division Team: Week 4

By Dan Graziano

Time once again for the weekly rollout of the running All-NFC East team. If you're new 'round these parts, we've been doing this every week -- picking the All-Division team in the NFC East based on cumulative performance to date. There's been some confusion about the criteria, so I'm here to reiterate that the voting for this team is NOT based solely on this week's performance but on how the players have played to this point in the season relative to others at their positions. So if your guy had a monster Week 3 and he's not on the list, you might want to check and see if his Weeks 1 and 2 were good enough to justify ranking him over whoever beat him out.

That bit of housekeeping out of the way, I present this week's version of the NFC East All-Divison Team. As always, I'll have some explanations and commentary at the bottom of the post.
