  1. The Eagles and the Vikings this week is a statement game. I would throw about (10) to (15) 50+ yard bombs in the first half to spread out those Vikings CBs, and then some read option passes to Sanders in space. In 2017, we didn't have Jackson. Sunday will require Carson to throw with high accuracy while the Vikings corners still have their backs turned on the WOs. Get the ball out quick to the WO run route patterns to allow the WOs to get at least (10) yards after the catch. This is the next level NFL QB. Sanders maybe a much better slot RB in space then north to south this game. Howard like Blount from 2017 would need to have the break away runs out of the backfield. The pass rush needs to continue from last week, and Cousins never does well with the blind side blitz. I would do some (7) man blitzes at times to collapse the Vikings Oline. The new CBs just have to again tackle this game and dive for every loose ball. Special teams for once needs to force some turnovers. Eagles will win this game 35-20.

    Main Issues

    Need to practice and focus on the running game, secondary, and pass rush from the DEs. In my opinion, the RB game is just not there at all. Loads of practice is needed on RB formations and just execution. The RBs need to gain that vision and be able to run down hill with the Oline. Fumbles are usually caused because the RB is not breaking the tackles. The NFL DE forces the RB to break tackles vs college. The secondary can't tackle except for a few. The secondary needs to practice tackling methods as their number one priority prior to every game. Right now Grade D+ on all three of the above categories.
  3. Now, yes, we are in a brand new phase of being philadelphia sports fans in general. In my opinion, the Eagles were the ground base of Philadelphia Sports, etc. The pressure is off for future seasons, even if we go back to the SB, we have the 2018 SB under our belts which erases the downs (of course not the ups) all those seasons dating back to 1960. In short, we can really enjoy the game now instead of putting pressure on our selves for never winning a SB. The Team, Eagles Management, Eagles Media, and the Fans are now a part of the SB winners in the NFL and are part of that history, with this SB game having really the some of the best playing highlights in Eagles Team and NFL history. So we have now completed the task.

    Lets stay with the Green uniforms. I am going to wear my Green/Grey Striped Eagles jersey, which I had since 1978 (MLB, Bergy - 66). I have never worm this jersey since that 1980 SB game, and it never changed states. I have been wearing this shirt since mid-season of this year for the first time since 1980 time frame in the same state. From what I saw this year in this team, they reminded me of the 1980 team, and also the 2004 team. A team that really plays like a team on offense, defense, and special teams, + the next (slight) level above the 1980 team. So the Eagles green (not the black) is part of the driving spirit of Philadelphia/Suburbs underpinning this team.

    Can beat the Falcons

    Formula: 1) Sack the QB 6 to 7 times; and 2) 200 yards rushing will lay the ground work to beat the Falcons. After that its' about those 11 hour practices for 2 weeks prior to the game to develop fox hole team determination to win the game. Also, it's good to be the underdog, because it can promote a let down from the other team. But the QB position is still a big key. If the QB shows up and can have 95 point passer rating, then the Eagles win by 10 to 14 points; and the team can build for the next game. The QB needs to perform passing accuracy drills every day and night, until he can lead the WR in spots on the field with the precise button hook. The precise button hook; and over the head drop ball by the QB will finally determine if the Eagles win this Saturday. The QB needs to have the touch to get the ball out quick and have the ball lead the WR, and not the other way around. Great QBs are not built on over powering arm strength, but overcoming the tunnel vision with confidence and concentration of reading the defense and getting the ball out to the WR while the DBs still have their backs turned in coverage.
