THESE are special series articles which focus on the long range aspects of the upcoming season. 

The NFC East:

Offers a PRE-DRAFT prediction of who has the best chance of winning the division in the upcoming season. While many season predictors wait until after the Draft to make their picks, this series recognizes that rookies are x-factors and so focuses on veteran contributors. (Correct predictions in 2017 and 2019. Incorrect prediction in 2018.)

THE 12:

Instead of suggesting that we sign every high-priced Free Agent, or make a mega-trade or two, this series focuses on which 12 internal things the team can do, to ensure that we win the division. Some are re-signings. Some are coaching suggestions. Some are player position shifts…It’s a little of everything.
