  1. I find it interesting that Brian Dawkins and John Lynch are both nominated to this point and that they played in the exact same number of games in their careers. Off the field, I'd say both Brian Dawkins and John Lynch were, and remain, proven men of high character and terrific leaders. They are equals on that ground. On the field, Brian Dawkins outperformed John Lynch in every meaningful career defensive category. Here's a quick glance at their career totals according to Pro Football Reference...(and how I compare them.) TCKL ASSIST INT FF FR TD SACKS YEARS GAMES DAWKINS 895 236 37 36 19 3 26 16 224 Av./GAME 3.99 1.05 0.16 0.16 0.08 0.01 0.10 N/A N/A DAWKINS Advantage Per GAME 0.71 *** 0.04 0.09 0.04 +3 0.06 1 0 LYNCH 736 318 26 16 9 0 13 15 224 Av./GAME 3.28 1.42 0.12 0.07 0.04 0 0.05 N/A N/A LYNCH Advantage Per GAME *** 0.37 *** **** **** **** **** **** 0 Dawk% better 21.6% --------- 42.3% 125% 111% +3 100% 7% 0 Lynch% better --------- 34.7% -------- -------- --------- -------- -------- -------- 0 Why did Lynch have more assists? Here's why. He had significantly less solo tackles. BTW - He also had less overall tackles involved in. Total TCKL + ASSIST % SOLO %ASSIST Dawkins 1131 79% 21% Lynch 1054 70% 30% - The % better simply means the other guy has to increase his total career production by that % to equal the man with the advantage. (e.g. Lynch's total FF + another 125% of that total = Dawkins' total.) From a productivity standpoint, there is NO reasonable way to justify Lynch getting in ahead of Dawkins. None. I wouldn't argue against them going in together, but DAWKINS goes first. They better put him in this time, or they should be utterly ashamed of themselves...especially if Lynch gets in.
  2. Wentz > Dak

    I think this debate is over. They'll both have their good and bad games, but Wentz is the better QB.
  3. Winning that game was beautiful even if it wasn't wire-to-wire dominance. It gives the Eagles a strangle hold on the division and keeps them on track for the top seed. Chicago is next. Gotta go 1-0 this week. Stay the course.
  4. Cowgirls Got Smoked!

    This just isn't their year. I expect that Sunday night will seal their fate for 2017.
  5. Ben McAdoo On Hot-Seat - 2 Players Squeal

    I don't follow the Giants close enough to get a sense of what's wrong up there beyond the obvious. It seems like either the GM screwed up and brought in dead weight or the HC is losing his team, or maybe some combination of the two. If I had to guess, I'd say a big part of it is McAdoo is having some problems establishing his leadership of the team. They have to figure it out for themselves though in the off season. As an Eagles' fan, their misfortune contributes to the Eagles' good fortune, and I'm all for that.
  6. Nfc vs AFC competition potential

    The next 4 weeks, with this Sunday being week 1, will set the table. Some of those teams are playing each other in there. For example: Week 11 - While the Eagles are defeating the Cowboys on Sunday night, folks will be talking about who won the Rams v. Vikings game earlier that day, and predicting the outcome of the Seahawks v. Falcons on MNF. Week 12 - While the Eagles are defeating the Bears, folks will be predicting the outcome of the Saints v. Rams game at 4 PM. Week 13 - The Eagles are at the Seahawks. The Vikings are at the Falcons, the Panthers are at the Saints, Week 14 - The Eagles are at the Rams. Oh, BTW, the Saints are at the Falcons, and the Vikings are at the Panthers. We'll know a lot more about how things are shaping up after this stretch. For now, there's only one thing to consider: Dallas is next up. Stay the course. Go 1-0 this week.
  7. Is the Cowboys defense good?

    If he's making all the right calls and setting the alignments, it makes sense, especially if the back up doesn't do those things well. Out of position too often and not properly reacting to the offense pre-snap is a bad place to be in as a defense.
  8. Cowgirls Got Smoked!

    Sack Prescott is just not ready to carry his team without a running game. To keep the pressure off of him, the Cowboys will have to try to establish the run early against the Eagles. I expect that to look a lot like this until it's finally abandoned: After that, the defense should fire up the pressure cooker.
  9. Cowgirls Got Smoked!

    I am sure Sir Doug , Sir Jim, and Sir Dave will give them a personal tour. Dilly! Dilly!
  10. Dallas is next. Stay the course.
  11. Cowgirls Got Smoked!

    Dilly Dilly !
  12. Cowgirls Got Smoked!

    Sack Prescott was in trouble all game. Won't be any different next week.
  13. Is the Cowboys defense good?

    I agree with you. My point was that mathematically it isn't over yet for the division, but we're approaching that threshold soon. If you're the Cowboys, this Atlanta game is huge as is the next one against the Eagles. Win those 2 games and you're still realistically in the hunt. Lose them and they'll need the Eagles to lose a lot while they win out. Not likely at that point.
  14. Is the Cowboys defense good?

    Not necessarily true. Eagles fans can be objective in their analysis at times. Here's an unbiased and objective take on the Cowboys season as it stands now. If the Falcons win this week, the Cowboys MUST split with the Eagles or they can't win the division.
  15. Shango and The Dallas Cowboys Show

    If the Falcons beat the Cowboys, they must split with the Eagles or their hopes of winning the division are done for the year. That's where they're at. Go Falcons!!
