EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ – This is a feeling of melancholy for me, the realization that 2012 is about to end and that a season with so many high hopes hits the finish line with no rewards. No playoffs. No butterflies in the stomach. Just over ...

What want wrong with this team confusion on the D side of the football and to many turnovers on the O side of the ball something that has plagued this team for 2seasons now

>>dave: fans are looking forward to a house-cleaning and upgrades in coaching and those tasked with drafting/scouting and personnel decisions. the game with Gmen isn't even a footnote. the presser on Monday will tell how serious the Eagles owner is about improving this team. Last season, he had the chance to improve on 2012---he WHIFFED BIG TIME. Jeff Lurie needs to step up.

BG93...#41... impressive!

It's truly been a "disconnect" year...

I feel for Dave... you can tell he's hurting a little...or a lot...

Good writing...hard to sugar-coat a 4-11 season...Dave doesn't.

But I am on record for the first time ever: I wish for a (dignified) Eagles loss. All my chips are in on the 2013 NFL Draft. There, I said it... and I'm not sorry.

Well now that we learned that the Snyder way of doing things doesn't work(buying a team) hoepfully we will go back to what does.... Building through the draft with couple of key free agents/trades if need be

Also Thanks TJ.....I would like to thank this impressive rookie season of posting to the great vetern leadership on this site(guys like 3D,Woody,TJ,Brizer(when he wasn't banned) etc. lol :)

STAR LOTULELEI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! bring some size to this DL help against the run and free up Cox to be able to move around the DL doesn't have to play just DT..... Also will help the LBs out with the OL not getting downfield and blocking them

Could you image are DL RE(Cole),DT(Star),DT(Jenkins),LE(Cox) to help against the run.... then on 3rd and longs etc. have Cole,Cox,Jenkins,Graham to get after the QB.....

Good article Dave, We've been right here with you suffering through this agonizing season, I can't wait to here your opinions when we clean house because You can't really write an article calling out the coaches when your working for the organization that employs them.

I have no idea what season Dave has been watching. This season feels like the never ending nightmare! How can you say this season "flew by"? I've been ready for it to be over for about 2 months now. Tomorrow is a day of joy, not sorrow. The misery ends tomorrow, and hopefully we can get a competent coaching staff and better players and rebound in 2013. Thank God its over!

One of the great things about Jason Avant is that he is not an ignorant **** receiver...He sees the play developing or not, then breaks off his route if necessary to come up with a possesion reception. My only beef with Avant is his occasional hands of stone....Okay, I'm done.

Oh dear...an innocent "typo"--- I meant "slot" receiver...

Free Brizer!

IM glad some of u FIND THIS f'ing FUNNY?? THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRAFTING 3rd AND 8th IS HUGE!!! The #3 PICK is worth 2200 pts and after that it drops at 4 its 1800pts and drops 100pts each pick after till #9 wich is 1350 pts then it drops by 50 till 18 then it drops by 25 pts each pick and so on ... according to the PRO FOOTBALL TALK DRAFT TRADE CHART! SO WHO EVER IS STUPID ENOUGH TO WANT US TO WIN ESPECIALLY WHEN JOECKEL THE GREAT OT FROM TEXAS a&m will be gone by the 3rd the latest!!! After him TEO will be the 4th pick WHO WITH HIM AND DEMECO AND KENDRYKS EVEN BALDI SAID IT WE WOULD HAVE AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER LBs THAN SAN ****!

Dave thanks for your optimism!

I agree with you the season went by fast. I was always hoping that we would turn the season around.

I hope we end on a positive note with a Win against the Giants.

I got it right with my prediction when we played Washington.

This time I predict that we squeak by and beat the Giants and that the Eagles deliver a solid team effort from the D-Fence, O-line, Special Teams and the QB.

Go Eagles Go!!

Cant wait till Reid gets fired. I wish him the best, but its time to move on. I want a defensive minded football coach. Andy forgot that his defenses in the early 2000s were getting him to the championship games. The last several seasons he has ripped apart the Eagles defensive and they now are one of the worst defenses in the league.
