Cowboys and Chargers In The Super Bowl?

The Cowboys...really? The Sporting News has come out with their 2008 Season Predictions and according to Clifton Brown it will be the Cowboys versus the Chargers in Super Bowl XLIII.

The article has the Eagles again missing the playoffs with a 7-9 record. The blurb on the Eagles is:

Playing in a tough division hurts them. Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook could still use more help on offense. Asante Samuel gives them a nice cover guy, but too bad he doesn't play offense.

Though I agree that more help is needed on offense, I can't see how the Eagles don't win at least the 10 games below. A top ten offense from 2007 is returning all but one starter and the defense has made significant upgrades during the off-season to vault them into the upper echelon of defensive units.
Wins: Rams, Bears, Redskins (once), 49ers, Falcons, Giants (once), Bengals, Ravens, Cardinals, Cowboys (once)
Again who really knows wins and losses at this point. It is all a guess. At least a 4-12 record, like that of the Redskins, wasn't predicted.

The problem is: if McNabb or Westbrooke get hurt or don't play to their optimum, there goes the offense and there goes the 10 or more wins. The Eagles don't have a lot to fall back on offense wise.
