    Rolling R-word's (Trademark Pending) updates..

    I think the Dolphins are more upset followed closely by the Browns.
  3. I agree that if building a team around an "elite" RB is your goal, you will probably never see a superbowl and that it is easier if you do it with an "elite" QB, but you can have the most elite QB in the world and if the team around him sucks, that team will remain at the bottom or mediocre at best. It's the team as a whole that needs to gel and exceed their typical performance that wins SB's.
  4. You guys are really all saying the same thing. You need elite play at some of your most important positions on offense QB, RB, WR and possibly TE, but the better the team plays in the other positions like the line, kicking game and special teams, the more likely you are to win the SB. Just like on defense, you need elite play in the DL and safety positions, but can get far with LB's and CB's that are also playing at a high level. The term "elite" player gets tossed around a lot, but if you get consistent elite play out of above average players and consistent great play out of average players (realizing that average in the NFL is generally your elite or above average players in college), you have the super bowl winning formula. Just my opinion.

    Why do people consider Terrell Owens so "talented?"

    Dude had great hands, size and speed. Could run routes and was very dependable as a receiver. Like DeathbyEagle above says, Hall of Fame.

    Browns sign Hunt

    Howie really needs to work some magic this off season. The backs we had for the Super Bowl year were a constant threat that really helped the overall offense.

    Was Super Bowl LIII Fixed?

    It may not have been "fixed" but the refs again made some head scratching calls that always seemed to help the Patriots keep a drive alive. How much fun would pro football be to watch and play if backyard rules were followed instead of all of these judgement call penalties. Refs always made bad calls, but is it me or does it just seem like there are more now and that these calls are having a direct impact on the outcome of games? Some teams can fight through these bad calls and still win, but why should they have to????

    Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs Patriots.

    Snoorda, you now have to let us know how you became such an Eagles fan. It is a good thing to have other favorite teams when your #1 team is no longer in the playoffs or not playing well. I always liked the Chargers, Seahawks and Falcons (mostly because we wore their jerseys in High School)... and anyone playing against Dallas is automatically my favorite for that game.

    Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs Patriots.

    This was another great suggestion. Wonder how many Eagles fans did this to watch a more exciting Super Bowl... especially since we know who won 🙂

    Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs Patriots.

    Thanks VABeach. I know it was on Tuesday night and planned on using the DVR, but was teaching a basement fires class that night and ran out without recording. Good suggestion.

    Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs Patriots.

    I tried to find SB 52 on demand through Comcast and they kept bringing up SB 53. Wanted to watch a good Superbowl. Way to go Comcast. 😞

    Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs Patriots.

    You forgot most boring 🙂
  13. You actually have to play in the game to be credited as winning the game. You still get a ring by being on the team, but Wentz certainly contributed to getting the team there. The injury was certainly sad for him, but the way he was playing in 18, he could have done as well as Nick. Goff if he had won would be considered the first of the two to win a SB.... but he lost so it's still up for grabs Carson.

    Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs Patriots.

    I'd rather watch Fast Times at Ridgemont High (which was on at the same time as the SB) than endure 1 second of Maroon 5. Suckey half time show for a suckey game. I should change that to be moron 5... sorry.

    Awful lot of penalties called to help the Patriots... that I saw anyway between naps. BORING

    Should the NFL go to a draft lottery?

    I'd like to see it as just a max of 63 or rounded up to 65. Keep the current cap but lower the vet and rookie minimums. The main reason for this is that they could do more substitutions that would actually increase the safety for the players and it's pretty obvious that I think they are paid too much and that is not just for football. Keeping the salary cap as is would make it a more competitive sport in general because teams would base higher salaries on performance and incentives.

    Should the NFL go to a draft lottery?

    No. The one thing they should do though is to increase active roster size by at least 10.

    Eagles fans in Dallas?

    My brother in law lived in Dallas for a number of years and always went to the Eagles/Dallas games wearing his Eagles colors.

    Are you rooting for Andy Reid now?

    Gotta give Andy credit for knowing and signing talented football players. As long as the Patriots lose, I don't care who wins. The Eagles aren't playing.
  20. Really disappointed that there were NO ADJUSTMENTS made at halftime. Pederson has to accept the responsibility for that.

    Where does Nick Foles wind up next season?

    It really just comes down to what Nick and his family want. He could restructure his contract to stay with the Eagles which he would need to do since I don't see them spending $20 million next year on a back-up. He could go after the money and play for a team that doesn't use him as well as the Eagles have. He could say that he wants to stay and help the Eagles get some first round picks (I've seen projections that he could be worth 2 first round picks). We know the Eagles like having him where he is because of his success. This was clear in them getting him his $1 million incentive bonus this year, but I think Nick has all the power here to decide what he wants, especially if he can get us to another Super Bowl and possibly win it. His value increases with every win.
  22. Gotta love old reliable Sanchez. Makes some good throws, can't get points on the board. Hasn't changed much his entire career.
  23. They need to give Dallas a nice spanking next week to bring them back to reality. Don't give any big runs to Elliott and put pressure on Dax is the winning formula for defense. For offense, play like they have been recently and hit the WR's in the slot. Tate and Ertz (and hopefully Goedert) should have a big game on offense as long as the keep Dallas' defense honest with some nice chunks running the ball.
  24. The O line and D line have a good game. Eagles win.

    Anyone else get sad watching the Saints,Chiefs, Rams

    I am kind of sad. It is certainly not enjoyable watching the games this year like last. I was at the Chicago game and you knew 5 minutes in that the Eagles were by far, a better team and destined to go into the playoffs. Plays were executed on offense. The defense had a nose for the ball and were disruptive. Most of those players are back. Yes, some hurting, but c'mon guys... let's see some fire and desire to win.
