    I hope Stefanski, a Philadelphia area native (his father Ed was the general manager for both the 76ers and Nets), does well, but for most of the last 20 years the Browns job has been the worst head coaching job in the NFL.

    I remember Ed Stefanski playing guard for Penn in the seventies. 


  2. Schottenheimer, Gibbs 2.0, and Shanahan were all experienced "good" hires who never really panned out for the Redskins, and I'm not even sure that Rivera is as good as those guys. This doesn't worry me in the least. They might sneak in an occasional 9-7 or 10-6 season if he's there for awhile, but I don't expect them to be any kind of long term contenders.

    No, I've never really liked anything else on my burgers other than maybe lettuce.

    I actually really liked the food. At Fort Hood, the mess halls were double sided. One side for 'fast food' the other for 'hot food', like roast beef or turkey or whatever. So we'd always start off with the fast food, then walk around the building and get takeout of whatever was on that side.

    Thanksgiving 1989 was awesome.

    Meal 1, I was picked (along with two soldiers from every company in the brigade) to have Thanksgiving 'dinner' with the brigade commander at 1100. Once that meal was done, I walked around to the other side and got (Meal 2) takeout to eat while watching football.

    At 1500, they had another serving. I went again and ate more at the mess hall (Meal 3). Then, walked around to get Meal 4. Then at 1800, they opened again, and I got Meals 5 and 6.

    I didn't eat 100% of that when I got it, but my mini-fridge was stocked with turkey for a couple of days! lol

    And that was the day the Eagles blew out the Cowboys too!!!

    Good points. And now we only play them every 4 years (plus a SOS game every now and then) so when they have been good and beat us (2004 Steelers were probably the best team in the league that year, ended both the Patriots and Eagles undefeated season in back to back weeks) they don’t face us often enough to close the gap

    There are no SOS games with the other conference.


  5. It wouldn't surprise me (I haven't done the math/just guessing) if the highly implausible scenario for the Eagles to get the sixth seed is for them to win the three "easy" games and tie against Dallas, with Dallas also winning out. At 8-7-1, Dallas would win the division on the tiebreak. And the Vikings and Rams and Bears completely collapse and only get to 8 wins each.

    Can we even mathematically still get a Wild Card?

    No. What I meant regarding the Rams was that I'd like the Rams to still have legitimate hopes themselves when they play Dallas next week. If the Rams lose tomorrow, they'll probably be pretty much out of it going into their game with the Cowboys.


  7. So I'm thinking that if the Cowboys lose, the Eagles can no longer win a "tiebreak" with them...because they only way that could happen would be if the Eagles lose a game in their division.

    But basically everything would be the same as before (if Dallas loses tonight), just that the Eagles by winning out would win the division outright rather than by a tiebreak (if Dallas wins their other games.) But it would also put in play the option that if Dallas loses to the Rams next week, the Eagles could then afford to lose one of the three games against the Giants/Redskins, as long as they win the other two and also beat the Cowboys.

    Go Bears.
