The NBA is making some changes to their rules, and we are seeing some big name players change teams! Do any of these moves mean that a team will be able to challenge the Golden State Warriors?

We briefly discuss the Major League Baseball playoffs, and what we might expect in the upcoming postseason series.

We are beginning to see some college football teams separate themselves from the pack. We take a look at a few teams that have been even better than expected so far.

Daly Dose #146 The NFL overreactions

This week on the Dose we are gauging the overreactions from Week 1 of the NFL season! Are the New England Patriots in trouble? Are the Kansas City Chiefs a true contender?

The 2017 Daly Dose NFL Preview: The NFC East

NFC East

The NFC East has a rich history of teams that have won titles. The Dallas Cowboys have won five titles. The New York Giants have won four. The Washington Redskins have won three Super Bowls. The Philadelphia Eagles are also in the NFC East.

NFC-East

1. Dallas Cowboys

Predicted finish: 10-6

After multiple seasons of mediocrity, the Cowboys broke through with a 13-3 record, behind their rookie backfield tandem of QB Dak Prescott, and RB Ezekiel Elliott. The schedule is going to be significantly tougher in 2017, and the Cowboys lost some people on both sides of the ball, but they should still be in the thick of the division race.  Can Prescott avoid a sophomore slump? Can the defense prove that last season wasn’t a fluke? Can Elliott avoid getting arrested? Stay tuned!

2. New York Giants

Predicted finish: 9-7

The Giants are in desperation mode, trying to win one more title with quarterback Eli Manning. They have signed WR Brandon Marshall to pair with Odell Beckham Jr. Tight end Evan Engram was drafted out of Ole Miss with their top draft pick. The defense should remain a top-10 unit behind a nasty defensive line. Unfortunately the offensive line remains a weakness, and Eli Manning seems to be suffering from mid-life color blindness.

3. Philadelphia Eagles

Predicted finish: 8-8

The Eagles are doing some very good things, as they are doing their best to surround their young quarterback Carson Wentz with some help. They signed WRs Alshon Jeffrey, and Torrey Smith, and looked to get tougher on defense. They probably can’t contend for a playoff spot, but they are getting better, and at least they didn’t screw things up. And for the Eagles, that’s pretty darn good.

4. Washington Redskins

Predicted finish: 7-9

Washington seems to have taken the title of most dysfunctional NFL franchise, as they fired their general manager abruptly, and failed to get QB Kirk Cousins signed to a long-term deal. They did sign WR Terrell Pryor away from the Browns, and upon witnessing how this team operates, he stated that he felt like he was right back in Cleveland.
