    Over rated Head Coaches ?

    Honestly, the crazy thing about Doug isn't so much that he won a SB, it's the way he won it. It's hard to describe, but there's people that feel like they're satisfied and complete when they win one by the way they win them, and then there's people who do so in such odd ways it seems like they're not done if things go correctly. Doug not only won one, but he did so by rejecting many things that make the fundamentals of this game. He threw conservatism to the wind and called plays the same way you see a cornered animal fight for life. Some of the stuff he called when dueling head to head against the greatest coach and QB of all time with our defense playing arguably their worst game of the year for 55 minutes was honestly a spectacle to see. It absolutely blows my mind that people are more about McVay than Pederson. Both have reached the Super Bowl, and have shown their hands in the most defining moments of their coaching careers. McVay called that Super Bowl like he was scared from the first time his offense stepped on the field. Pederson called that Super Bowl like the only fear he had, was the fear of going home a loser. That's probably the biggest difference, outside of, you know, Jared Goff.
  2. The guard was literally smiling. I'd love for Zeke to get suspended, but I doubt it.

    Seahawks and Wilson agree to mega contract

    LOL I meant if I were like a GM. I just think that's so far beyond the scope that it's just insane. I can't even imagine building a team there. Good luck winning anything Seahawks is basically my sentiment for this deal.

    I'm not interested in paying a QB over 30 million dollars per year. Sorry. Not interested at all.

    Rams chances of contending in 2019

    Um, it just depends. Yeah reading defenses in the NFL is different than in college, but like everything else, some accel at it and some do not. The truth is, Goff was considered raw in literally every sense of the word after college particularly after playing in a very non pro style system, having a very mediocre team, but checking all the boxes for an NFL QB to be developed. Honestly I think Carson Wentz was the better prospect and it wasn't even close. As for Watson and Mayfield....I think somewhat yes, somewhat no. Mayfield is still learning, Watson is too. But more mobile QBs have a bit more to rely upon as they learn. Goff...not so much.

    Kaepernick and Reid settle collusion case with NFL

    Everybody who says this has their entire argument go flying out the window when they realize Blake Bortles and Andy Dalton were starting QBs in the NFL this year. I'm not even a Kaepernick fan, but I think he's so much better than Blake Bortles that it's pretty much robbery. He's also had significantly more success than Sam Bradford. In terms of results and pedigree he was definitely better than several of the lower end QBs. Just some of those people at the head of those teams didn't want to deal with it. And I'm not saying I think that's particularly right, or particularly wrong, but frankly I think it was highly overblown. Half the NFL kneeled at some point. Who cares?

    Welp, we whiffed that one. We're going to regret it.

    Sean McVay: I got out-coached

    I thought the same about us for a while. But you know, it's easier to keep up hope as a fan. I like the Chargers but I don't follow them.

    I'm so sad Phillip Rivers and the Chargers couldn't get it done. That's just awful.

    Sean McVay: I got out-coached

    Man, and Tom Brady has 6 rings now. I don't even get how his 7th can be prevented unless the Eagles get there again.

    Lawsuits field from Rams-Saints game seeding do-over

    Um. Context matters. Maybe you weren't aware, but if not for a very certain person sparking the Eagles to play out of their minds, the Eagles were basically dead in the water after that. It was like a 9/10 chance for elimination. That's why I mentioned that. I never said we wouldn't be mad about it. Any fanbase would. I said I think the reason we don't feel bad for it happening to another team is because that kind of crap happened to us too, and because the Saints players were complete dopes about it. For example before the season they talked about how they would have just completely destroyed the Eagles if they played us last year, when Nick Foles established the greatest passer rating in playoff history. Then, due to beating the Eagles with half the team from last year on injured reserve (I'm not even trying to make excuses, or exaggerating), they decided to talk all that crap, and then lost on a karma call in the following game. So much of a karma call one of the Rams players literally made it a point to shove it in their face. So long story short, no, we don't feel bad for them. But hell yes we'd be mad, I'm not denying that. If say another team that was more humble that we liked more had it happen to them...Browns, Chargers, Colts, you get the idea. We'd probably sympathize more.

    Lawsuits field from Rams-Saints game seeding do-over

    I think we see it that way because the same crap except worse happened to us, just at a different time. See: The Eagles-Cowboys game two. Besides, Saints players were talking all that good sh--, make sure you blow a team out if you don't want the refs to affect the outcome.
  15. Another year, another fanbase that shows their true colors. Feel like Eagles Saints is going to become a fairly bitter rivalry soon, if Drew Brees doesn't retire.
