The New York Giants started the season 0-6, and they're still in the race. Such is life in the NFC East, one of the league's most historic divisions -- and perhaps its weakest. The Philadelphia Eagles won in Green Bay on Sunday, moving them to 5-5 and into a tie with the Dallas Cowboys (who were hammered by the New Orleans Saints on Sunday evening). The Giants, meanwhile, are two games back and tied with the Washington Redskins. Which team takes the title?

Are RG III, Washington finished?

A year ago, the Washington Redskins started 3-6 and coach Mike Shanahan effectively wrote off the season. Then his team went 7-0 and made the playoffs. Thursday night, Robert Griffin III & Co. fell to 3-6 with a loss to the lowly Minnesota Vikings. Can the feat be repeated in D.C.? Or is this group done?

The Marlins were the worst team in the National League last year, a 62-100 disaster that was last in most major offensive categories. Lone bright spot Giancarlo Stanton even had a bit of a down year, hitting only .249 with an .845 OPS and 62 RBIs. What's worse, he actually led the Marlins in all of those categories. Marlins general manager Dan Jennings said the team is planning to rebuild around Stanton, but is it time for them to try to accelrate that rebuilding by shipping him for prospects?


Keeping Stanton?

Stanton is one of the most dangerous hitters in the game when healthy -- he led the league in slugging percentage in 2012 with a .608 mark and made the NL All-Star team.

SportsNation

Marlins GM Dan Jennings said that Giancarlo Stanton is not available for a trade. What should the Marlins do with Stanton?

Brandon Meriweather apologizes

According to NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, Brandon Meriweather is sorry for the comments he made earlier this week directed at the league's rules and Bears WR Brandon Marshall. Meriweather, who was suspended one game for helmet-to-helmet hits against the Bears, said Monday that the NFL rule changes are going to force him to hit players in the knees. Meriweather also took aim at Marshall, after the Bears receiver criticized Meriweather's playing style. Does SN think Meriweather needed to apologize?

  • "I guess I just got to take people's knees out...I would hate to end a guy's career over a rule, but I guess it's better other people than me getting suspended for longer...You can't hit them high anymore." What do you think of Meriweather's statement?
