    How come Brady's receivers never drop passes

    Same can't be said for Tommy boy though...
  2. I grew up and worked in Wilmington so I say this with all the love possible for Delaware: do not stay there. Also, the worst parts of Wilmington are every bit as bad as the worst of Philadelphia.
  3. Depending on the time of year you're coming there are a fair number of cool beer gardens in the city. Even in the winter there's a big one on the waterfront near old City. Also a good launching spot for a quick cab/Uber to northern liberties and fishtown (wouldn't stay in those spots but they have a ton to do for the 20-30 crowd). Walkable to the Italian market and all the touristy stuff. Based on what you're saying that's where I'd recommend. The neighborhoods just south of old City would probably be your best bet for a house rental. I'm around Christian street and it's about a 15 minute (very safe) walk to old City and 15 minute walk to the Broad street line of you're looking for a scale. Super walkable city. Good luck.
  4. Center City probably not, but you don't think you could get a 3 bedroom Airbnb with a pullout couch in an adjacent place like Headhouse, Queens Village, Hawthorne, Graduate hospital?
  5. Eh you can probably Airbnb a townhome easy enough in a nice neighborhood. And as long as you're South of Vine and East of the Schuylkill there's not a lot of trouble you can get into unless you really make sure bad choices.
  6. Lol this is so ignorant. I've lived here for 12 years. The vast majority of the city is perfectly safe.
  7. I wouldn't stay by the stadiums. It's not that they're unsafe there's just not a lot to do around there. As long as you can get to the Broad street train line you can get to the stadium easily and cheap. I'd recommend Old City, Rittenhouse or Passyunk Square. Old City is where the liberty Bell/independence hall are. Good restaurants and access to the waterfront. Touristy and busy though. Queens Village and Headhouse square are options if you want to be near there but want a more mellow/cheaper option. Rittenhouse is a really nice neighborhood with a great park, stores, restaurants and access to the Schuylkill and art museum area. Expensive and busy though. Passyunk is a more up and coming area. Hipster foodie vibe while still maintaining an authentic South Philly feel. Closest to the stadium but not what I'd call walkable (I have but still). A bit isolated though so if you want to explore the rest of the city it may not be the most central spot.
  8. Enjoy it man. Place should be electric today

    Lets all laugh at the Giants

    That's what I thought. Giants drafted well, gotta give it to em. Next up is fixing that defense.

    Lets all laugh at the Giants

    I've heard a couple beat writers say the Eagles "stuck it to the Giants" by letting the the Ravens go up and get Jackson ahead of them. Was there even any indication that the Giants even had interest in Jackson? Seems just like someone trying to make a story.

    Eh I don't see you guys being that high again for awhile even if Eli declines. That offense is going to win games regardless unless Hernandez and Solder are mega-busts.

    Lets all laugh at the Giants

    Giants offense is going to be very formidable. I don't have a ton of faith in Manning going forward but they got a very good OT and drafted a potential long-term starter at OG. Their RB, WR, and TE situation is as good as anyone's in the league. Even a mediocre QB could clean up with that kind of talent. The concern is on the defensive side of the ball IMO. They need to turn that around otherwise they're going to spend the twilight years of Eli's career mired in mediocrity.

    Rams gonna be tough...

    It's hard to compare directly given 3-4 vs 4-3 but here's my best shot. Safety: Eagles (close), CB: Rams (by a lot) ILB: Eagles, EDGE: Eagles (by a lot) Interior DL: Rams, OL: Eagles (close), RB: Rams, WR: Tie? (Hard to tell with Cooks and Wallace in the fold), TE: Eagles (by a lot), QB: Eagles Don't get me wrong they should be very very good but if we're playing the "on paper" off season game it's not like they've clearly separated themselves from us. It'll come down to player development and coaching and while I have a lot of respect for McVay and Phillips, they have a tough task ahead of them integrating so many new guys on both sides of the ball.

    Kirk Cousins is the next Brees

    I heard someone on the one of the XM radio stations mention this and it made a lot of sense to me: Cousins' raises their floor quite a bit but doesn't by himself raise the ceiling of the Vikings. Keenum played every bit as well as Cousins last year. Now obviously the big difference is that Cousins has consistently played at that level his whole career, but regardless will Cousins outperform 2017 Keenum, who wasn't enough himself to get them over the hump? Maybe, but I'm not totally convinced. Cook and some of the other additions they may make on the other hand, that might make the difference.
