Giants and Eagles fans, enjoy: the Dallas Cowboys are coming apart at the seams.

That’s according to NFL Network’s Jane Slater.

“Cowboys players initially bought into keeping things internal. Now as they sit 2-4 the discontent is leaking out. On the coaching staff ‘totally unprepared. They don’t teach. They don’t have any sense of adjusting on the fly.’ Another ‘they just aren’t good at their jobs.’”

The NFC East Is Officially a Master Class in Football Ineptitude - The Ringer

The NFC East is not just terrible, it is also hard to watch. The division that sits at 5-18-1 after six weeks has a point differential of negative-184. Both Washington and Dallas have had to switch quarterbacks, while Jones is creeping toward the “bust” label in New York, and injuries and incompetence have made the Eagles virtually unwatchable. There’s little hope things get much better—but one of these teams will be in the postseason come January.

The NFC East’s ineptitude wouldn’t even be worth this angry blog, but NFL broadcasters won’t let us simply ignore this division. The Eagles and Giants play on Thursday night next week. And in Week 8, the Cowboys and Eagles will face off on Sunday night before the Buccaneers play the Giants on Monday night. NFL fans will be stuck with this filth all season long:

In terms of wins, the NFC East is barely keeping pace with the Bears, who have already benched one quarterback and might already be considering benching another. Fire this division into the sun.
