  1. I can admit that singing the national anthem is political in the sense that patriotism describes an emotional and duty filled attachment a government. But that's not necessarily a bad thing. And in the same breath, protest-- can, at times-- be a form of patriotism: Demanding that one's nation does better.
  2. He had his success when the read option was all the rage. And the defenses caught up with it.
  3. Love Celek. And he's not the first player to be in this position. Perhaps Celek took it in hopes the Eagles could become something special.
  4. Locking this post. NOT looking for debate.
  5. It's old news now. The Eagles didn't open up the dialogue, but Jenkins made an effort with the Philly police some months ago: Thanks, Pargo. At the others, no intention of opening up a debate.
  6. Miami's defense is coming on strong. I'll grant you the TD pass, but it won't be enough.
  7. Classy speech. And many of you showed too much respect. You're damaging the stereotypes regarding Eagle fans.
  8. Oh, okay. My bad. What was I thinking?
  9. Not sure it's either/or. And I'm not suggesting that the FO take a side. Just that they open a dialogue. That said, the emotion in this thread already is probably a good part of the reason it couldn't be considered.
  10. Dave, I don't want this post to get embroiled into another debate over the protests during the National Anthem. Instead, I'm wondering if the Front Office would be open to using its platform to facilitate a healthy conversation between Philadelphia's police force and with those concerned about police brutality in the Philly area. This fan would respect a move by the org.
  11. Let's see if he's man enough to be embarrassed by the trade and man up before we declare victory. Titans wouldn't have let this talent walk without good reason unless Chip was their coach.
  12. Turner made some noise, but let's not forget the other big bodies who made noise in the preseason but couldn't make the leap. Ironically, I can see the face of one of them but can't recall his name. LOL.
  13. I get it. It just doesn't square with the narrative or Lurie decorating the walls of the Nova Care center with pictures of civil rights leaders and humanitarians to remind all that character matters.
  14. I found that paragraph I wanted. Still not in love with it. Time will tell, I guess.
  15. I don't have all the facts and I'm not pretending to be in full moral outrage. I don't like what they are disclosing. Some help understanding the FO's thought process would go a long way.
