Nice list. At which point does Darnold take the starting job over?

Just some relevant history for the NFC East...

2011: 1st place- NYG, last place- WAS

2012: 1st place- WAS, last place- PHL

2013: 1st place- PHL, last place- WAS

2014: 1st place- DAL, last place- WAS

2015: 1st place- WAS, last place- DAL

2016: 1st place- DAL, last place- PHL

2017: 1st place- PHL, last place- NYG

Jumping from last to first place in one year is commonplace. It is an extremely volatile division.

This.  Eagles aren't as far out ahead vs the rest of the division as their fans seem to think they are.

Jumping from last to first place in one year is commonplace. It is an extremely volatile division. 

Context matters though....look at the years:

2012 - RG3 comes in for WAS and has that great year.

2013 - RG3 regresses...and Chip Kelly brings in the ORE O.   Nick Foles looks amazing.

2014 - Chip Kelly's system gets exposed.

2015 - Kirk Cousins takes over in WAS.  

2016 - Dak Prescott & Zeke Elliott take over in DAL.

2017 - Carson Wentz emerges as an elite QB.

I'd agree the gap in the NFC East isn't as wide as in other divisions - but in every year but 2014, it's pretty much the arrival of a new QB as the alpha dog (or in 2013's case, the emergence of the novel Chip Kelly O).   It's one of the reasons why the franchise QB is seen as the way to go (it's no longer that simple, but this run highlights why getting the franchise QB level play from a rookie contract player pays off so well).

Given we have the same QB in NYG, albeit with OL help and Barkley as a big upgrade (and OBJ's return) - if we look at the reasons for why these changes happen, it's usually a major emergence at QB talent.    Given how complete PHI's team is, while I think NYG is headed on the right path, don't really see worst-to-first this year.   Frankly, the entire NFC East had a strong offseason.

I fully expect the Giants to be the Eagles toughest divisional opponent this season and wouldn't be surprised to see them both in the playoffs.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Maybe Miami or whoever's QB gets hurt or something.

The Giants could be the 2nd best in the division, but no one in the nfc east is touching the Eagles this year. I expect their offense to be figured out a bit with a full year of solid tape and a target on their backs, but their depth and coaching is too good.
