  1. pre season is different than regular season, sure their is still chance for injury but most espablished players play very little in pre seaon, most the guys making plays in the pre season arent on a roster come game day. id rather see less games with higher quality football, stretch it out to 18 games and towards the end players would be playing on one leg, which makes for tired sloppy football. i dont see the value in an 18 game season except more generated revenue for the NFL and its owners. if the nfl were serious about player safety like they profess to be they would eliminate more pre season games and either keep the 16 game schedule go back to 14 but going to 18 doesnt protect players health or make for a better product on the field.
  2. people tend to forget that that team was also decimated by injuries, kelly inherited a pretty talented roster once the injured guys came back,
  3. i think they should go back to 14 games, 16 is too many, by the end of the year teams are fielding half a team because half are on IR if they do go 18 they need to expand rosters and active game day rosters to make up for the increase in player injury.
  4. Dak has played well and his team has a superior record than the other guys you mentioned. Who cares about the pro bowl anyway, its a beauty pageant. Wait until the All pro teams come out, those matter. i doubt Dak makes all pro but who knows he has played pretty well this year. No eagles will be All pro this year.
  5. Yup boldin is tough, not very fast but fly trap hands and super physical in and out of his routes.
  6. To this Point Dak has been a good game manager, he hasnt turned the ball over, he has shown some poise running the offense, but he still hasnt thrown a td and has one totall TD a rushing one. I like Dak and he's been impressive but i think Wentz showed in his first game that he can make some special throws. Having said that i hope Wentz has a better career because if Dak is having the better career than it probably means dallas is winning more than the eagles.
  7. liked both those guys, im sure both will find jobs somewhere.
  8. yeah i'll go with Gronk and whoever, it could be bill belicheat and Gronk and it would still be better just because, Gronk.
  9. Maybe he's hanging out with Shawn Andrews, or smokin blunts with Run Ricky Run

    The original blog was cool , lots of well informed posters discussing eagles stuff, but after a while it just became an inclusive ole boys club full of circle jerkers.

    im all for the blog until it turns into just another elitist whats up forum.

     

    You make a very reasonable point.  I'm hopeful that this reset causes your wish to come true.

  11. Bite your tongue, 80's music was the greatest Era of music ever!!!
  12. i dont think its all as cut and dry as strength of schedule. the league has alot of parity, it not like back in the 80's and 90's when a team could look at schedule and mark off guaranteed wins, not much separate playoff teams from non playoff teams anymore. Having said that Foles had a magnificent year, he only threw 2 ints and had a record breaking qb rating, thats not all strength of schedule, sure some can be attributed to supporting cast but how many guys succeed without having a good supporting cast,cant fault foles for doing what he did with what he had, its not like he had pretty good season he had a record breaking season, alot of it had to do with kellys system and defenses being lost and alot of it was right place right time, give credit where credit is due. Having said that foles is like a one hit wonder 80's big hair band,(take your pick) just because they never had another big hit doesnt make that one big hit less awesome.
  13. I agree with everything you said except that no one hates foles, there are plenty of Foles haters on this board, in fact i think its more a love hate relationship, its the haters that wont shut up about him. im aware of all the circumstances of Foles record breaking season, seeing as im an eagles fan and watched it all unfold, sometimes guys get in the perfect situation and take advantage of it, Foles did that for one season and it was alot of fun, he nor the eagles or chip could sustain that which leads us to now an im ok with that.
  14. that would in turn conclude that foles is was better than vick. I dont know why people cant just give foles credit for one really good season, ,even if everything lined up for him that year those same things were in place for vick and he didnt take advantage of them foles did, sure it was a fairy tale season for foles and the eagles and foles may never even come close to ever replicating those numbers but atleast give the dude credit for that one good season. Bobby Hoying really sucked but for a couple game stretch in his first few starts he was a total stud, other than that he sucked, Foles was that for a whole season, the rest of the time he sucked, why is that so hard to grasp for people. Good luck to foles not sure why people would have any hate towards him, he was a good teammate on and off the field worked hard and had one memorable season full of alot of fun, good luck to him.
  15. Icould easily see foles making a team as a back up and hanging around the league for ten years, if what he did with chip his first year is so easy then why didnt vick do it? Foles is no world beater but who knows guys like rich gannon chris chandler brad johnson jake delhomme were career backups who found lightning in a bottle later in their careers , so not ruling out foles all together.
