    [News] Jim Schwartz Prepares For Potent Chiefs

    those rankings are a joke, this week the Texans dropped 12 spots, and some other team jumped up 10... they are going to take a while to settle in, and team records will ultimately determine the order... right now it is one persons biased opinion after one game, and obviously keeping in mind last year. they should do a consensus of many analysts and post all of em , and an average... still probably won't be 100% accurate, but should be closer than the joke they post.

    [News] Jim Schwartz Prepares For Potent Chiefs

    I actually think the Eagles match up well against the Chiefs. Don't get me wrong, it will be tough, Andy and company had 3 extra days to rest and prepare, but I think the D line is going to make Smith uncomfortable, much like Cousins, and offensively I think the Eagles have some good match ups with Berry out. I do think it will be a chess match with Doug and Andy. I think certain backs need more carries to get in the flow of the game, and so sometimes RB by committee isn't the best choice, especially if you are going to be pass heavy. Some of the early runs also seemed telegraphed to me. Hope Dougie P cleans up some of that, but his play calling was generally better than last year(so far)
  3. KC has an outstanding O line, and this is the match up the Eagles can STILL win, the D line is going to be ready to bring it. The question to me is will the pressure be enough that the CBs can keep everything in front of them? Would love to see some of the rookies pick it up a notch(Barnett, and Douglas especially) I think the Eagles have a good chance at beating Reid and company, but it will need to be done in the trenches. On the offensive side, I think the WRs will be able to stretch the field enough to keep KC from loading the box, and I think Wentz is getting better at picking up blitzes and getting rid of the ball.. should be a good game. I don't like: 1) the Chiefs had 3 extra days to prepare, and rest. 2)2nd road game in a row 3)no Sturgis, or Darby 4)Alex Smith is still looking over his shoulder, and wants to keep his job, so has the proverbial fire lit under his @$$ I do Like: 1) Nelson Agholar not just catching, but scoring 2) The intense D line of the Eagles. 3)Wentz seems so much more at ease in this offense. 4) Dougie P is calling better plays(didn't blow it being too aggressive) GO EAGLES!!
  4. Huge Win, Congrats Eagles!!! , Long way to go , but what a great start. Now Dougie P has to face his mentor, and they got 3 extra days of rest... tougher challenge, but I think they just might be up to it :-) FLY EAGLES FLY!
  5. A win Week 1 in Washington would be a huge victory.. division rival , on the road, and first game.. I think it could really set the tone for the season, so I am hoping they pull off the W.

    [News] Season Preview: Dallas Cowboys

    this game is over 2 months away.
  7. I suppose it was what a NFL analyst predicted, but yeah 32 candidates as far as i am concerned. I also wish they would stop with the previews... they are on the cowboys, and that is week 10 . As a fan, I would rather wait and have some relevant news, then these fluff stories about predictions, or previews of games 2 months in advance.

    [News] Season Preview: Denver Broncos

    I am kind of annoyed they keep posting these when we haven't gotten to game 1. So much changes in the course of a season, by the time they play Denver, Brock could be playing... I am also not going back and finding each review... Please just only go a week or maybe 2 in advance. Thanks.
  9. I think this kid is perfect for Philly, a great person with the potential to be an outstanding QB. GO EAGLES!!!
  10. My Mock was pretty close about 5 off(10 players effected) Surprised to see Gibson, instead of Treggs, the rest weren't much of a surprise though, maybe Gordon not making it.
  11. he will be fine, but I still hope he isn't needed.
  12. foles will be ok, and hopefully they wont need him.
  13. I do think pual turner can find a team, he catches everything thrown at him.. good kid, I hope he has some success, just not against the eagles :-)
  14. thought Cherry might make it..

    [News] One Notable Preseason Takeaway

    coming out of the preseason with all your starters healthy is a WIN, getting good tape on all your players so you can get your best 53 is a WIN, who cares about the score? seem like they are 2-0 in the preseason atm :-) but when regular season starts, they are 0-0, and have a battle in DC. I guess it could be a bit early to call it a MUST WIN game, but I think it would set the tempo , and of course give a jump on the division. I think Doug will save something special for Andy and company week 2, and I do feel they need to win at LEAST one of the first 2 games to really have a shot at the division, etc. 9 days and we start to see what kind of team the Eagles really have. I think it will be a good one, GO EAGLES!!
