    SUPER BOWL LIV: 49ers vs. Chiefs

    Andy wasn't out on the field in the games. Maybe Our QB could/should have stayed sober during those critical games don't you think ? We might have had a better chance of winning those times. Andy gave us some really good seasons while here. I was rooting for him and will always root for Andy's teams (except) when they play against the Eagles.

    Anyone watching the Pro Bowl?

    I watched most of it, but when Counsins threw his 2nd INT I knew the NFC had no chance of winning that game. I think the last time the NFC won it was when Nick was named MVP of that game in the 2013/14 season.

    SUPER BOWL LIV: 49ers vs. Chiefs

    I don't recall Andy being the QB or any other player during those games.

    SUPER BOWL LIV: 49ers vs. Chiefs

    I'm not so sure that the Niners QB will be able to go toe to toe with Mahomes in a shootout. But than again, no one thought Foles could go toe to toe with Brady either. I just hope that Andy's Chiefs comes out on top.

    This is Andy Reid's Year

    I don't get the anger toward Andy either.To me that's kinda unfair. He did the best he could with what they GAVE him to work with. It's not like he didn't want more talented receviers. But what was he going to do ...hold a gun on Banner to ensure he got the players he probably told them he would like to have. As pointed out, he was/is a players coach, and so had no other option but to claim he was fine with what he had. He sure wasn't going to publicly say they sucked even if he secretly believed that they did. That was not Any's way. And it is also why his players play hard for him. And love the guy.

    This is Andy Reid's Year

    Why? I hope he does win ! I think he has learned from passed mistakes. Example... running the ball more consistently and situationally. Getting more talented players and just over all experience in his play calling.

    AFC Wildcard: Titans @ Patriots.

    As far as back as I can remember it has been one conference on Saturday the other on Sunday for the wild card round. Don't remember if they do it for the divisional rounds too. With so many teams making the playoffs when they added the wildcard round, there wasn't enough air time ( TV) for all the games to be played on one day.

    Dallas Cowboys 2020

    Isn't Garrett related to Jones in some way? I thought I read at one time that he was his son in law. If that is true than that could be why he has always been reluctant to replace him.

    The Evil Empire ending?

    Yep, and in spite of that being fact , they still feel the need to cheat...why? (once again they are caught taping another team ) to have an advantage. There's simply no reason for it.

    The Hypocrisy of Kaepernick in 4 Stories

    I think Nick can attest to that after last weeks display. Though T. Smith (sitting out the year) and the departure of Ramsey has had it's impact on that side of the ball. As for Keap, I really never paid a whole lot of attention to him after he left the NFL.His decision as I remember it.

    Nick Foles Gets Life

    I get that, but you still have to try to run the ball. Even if you don't think you'll be very effective at times.

    Nick Foles Gets Life

    Didn't go very well, since they lost. But am begining to understand why the Vikes let Flip go after one season. He had Nick throwing for nearly 50 times...(33 of47). That team is no better than the St Lewis Rams team he ended up on. This time he'll at least end up with a nice chunk of change for his misery. A fact that the fans are bemoaning ( given his early injury and the loss last week). I had to laugh at his pc of yesterday, when he told the media "you all can freak out, I'm not going to freak out. And telling them that everyone wants the end result before you get there. But it doesn't work that way!"

    THAT WAS UNBELIEVABLE! STILL NOT SURE HOW HE GOT THAT OFF WHILE BEING CRUSHED!

    Week 10: Chargers @ Raiders

    Good, maybe Foles can torch them with 7 TD's again. 😂

    Nick back at practice today.

    Next week will be week 11. They are on their bye this week...week 10. I think there were a few reasons to their returning to Nick. One is they still have 3 division games to play. Both with winning records. Colts twice and Titans again. Minshew for as well as he has played, has not beaten a team with a winning record. Secondly, Minshew has been listed on their injury report the last two weeks. First with a groin issue. Then this passed week with a shoulder problem of his throwing arm. If this kid is being groomed to be their future, they don't want to chance damaging him physically in a season that may already be lost post season wise. Then they may also feel that Nick gives them the best chance to make the post season. Given his record with the Eagles at this time of the year. But to compare this Jags team to those Eagles team is ridiculous! There really isn't any comparisons.Jags don't even come close! Their defense has been up and down...and the Ramsey situation didn't help their chance of being consistent either. He simply quit on the team. Forcing their hand into giving him what he wanted and that was... out of Jacksonville! They've had no TE to rely on to help over the middle of the field. Where most of the damage against them has been done. O'Shanassey and Bream have landed on IR. Leaving only Koyac a second year player, and Oliver a rookie. Who came off of IR 2 wks ago himself. Nick has his work cut out for him for sure. And I'm not so sure he will be able to get them where they hoped he would when they signed him, with what they have surrounding him. This one guy posted he believes Nick's HUGE ego,( laughed hysterically over that ) contrary to what his outward manner implies, has lusted ( his word not mine) to get back out there. And that eventually it will be his undoing. The lack of a quality supporting cast might well be his undoing, but it surely won't be because of a huge ego!

    Baker Mayfield storms away from media

    You've got a point!

    Nick back at practice today.

    It's not exactly the "hot" hand...luke warm would be more accurate. But that seems to be the concensus among the Jag fans too. I guess they have been doing pretty good at the gates too since Minshew has taken over. So that could be another consideration I guess.

    Nick back at practice today.

    He upped his turn over ratio in today's game according to the game coverage. He threw two costly INT's in the 4th quarter today .Also had another fumble that he lost. He leads the league in fumbles according to what I've read. But who knows how the Jags think. They are on their bye this next week. They still have the Colts twice. Raiders, Titans again, Chargers and after that, I'm not sure. Today's loss put them back under 500. So the question is, do they want to continue to see if this kid can be their future? Or do they go with the more experienced player in Foles. In hopes they can salvage their season. Their top site writer Oesher, doesn't think paying Foles the money they are, wouldn't be out of line with what most teams are paying QB's who are their starter, if they continued with Minshew. The fans are certainly crazy about the kid. But then compared to what they have been use to, it wouldn't take much to impress.

    Baker Mayfield storms away from media

    No doubt ! Hopefully he can mature and become a professional in all phases of the game.They haven't exactly hit on talent and character at the same time, when it comes to their QB selections. Drafted or F/A pick ups.

    Baker Mayfield storms away from media

    I don't disagree with any of those points. He is going to have to develop a thicker and tougher hide if he expects to last long at the NFL level. He would never survive the vultures of the Philly media if he is that easily provoked to become combative over a simple question.No matter how ridiculous it may have been.

    Week 9: 49ers @ Cardinals (Halloween)

    I agree. I wasn't trying to be sarcastic ..just pointing out what he once was percieved to being when he entered the league.

    Week 9: 49ers @ Cardinals (Halloween)

    He was a pretty good DB his first couple of seasons. That's when many fans wished the Eagles had drafted him.
