Over/Under For 2010: 10
Nothing will come easy in the division, and on top of that they travel to Houston, Minnesota, Green Bay, and Indianapolis. But hey, they get to play host to New Orleans. I don’t see where the 11 wins are going to come from.

Over/Under For 2010: 8.5
The Eagles have plenty of depth on defense and an offense that shouldn’t see much of a drop off from previous years, even after parting ways with their veteran leaders. DeSean Jackson, LeSean McCoy, and ReJeremy Maclin will all need to perform at a consistent level to ease the transition for Kevin Kolb.

-Albert Haynesworth has his flaws, but apparently he can screw all night.
Over/Under For 2010: 7.5
Dear God, just give me a winning season. I can’t take losing to these aforementioned assholes for another year. Oh, and I’m sorry about publishing a post on Rosh Hashanah. Just for that I’m going to eat extra apples and honey.
