    Hey Dallas

    true, but the rest of the league, hell, the rest of the division, seems to be moving faster than we are.

    Hey Dallas

    I agree. A lot of people are talking like the Eagles were built to be a dynasty. We were built to win won Super Bowl, which we did last year, and got really lucky this year. I hate to say it but I see the Eagles going the way of the 2008 Philles. Might be competitive for a couple of years after that but within 3 seasons we'll be back to the drawing board.

    I'm rooting for New England. I don't think the Chiefs make it to the dance, and if they do, I can't see them beating the Saints or Rams.

    JD Gibbs, son of Joe Gibbs passes away.

    wow, what horrible news. Prayers and condolences to the family.
  6. agreed. Unlike most people, I'm not a Patriots hater. I've rooted for them in just about every Super Bowl they've played. Obviously the 2 times i did not root for them they were playing us, and I rooted for the Chicago Bears in Super Bowl XX.

    Your team can't win Super Bowl LIII ...

    My philosophy is pretty simple: I root for the Eagles or the AFC in a Super Bowl. There have only been three times when I rooted for an NFC team Not named the Eagles in the Super Bowl: Super Bowl XVIII: I rooted for the Washington Redskins because I hated the Raiders for beating the Eagles in SB XV Super Bowl XX: I rooted for the Chicago Bears because they were just so much fun to watch. Who didn't love William "the Fridge" Perry? Super Bowl XLVIII: I rooted for the Seattle Seahawks because I live in the Bay Area and I hate the 49ers more than I hate the Cowboys. I did NOT root for the Seahawks to win XLIX

    Hey Dallas

    after reading that entire thread, it appears we're much harder on Cowboys fans than they are on us. Sure, some of them hate us, but it seems we hate them more than they hate us.

    so in other words.... just like Philly?

    AFC Wildcard: LA Chargers @ Baltimore.

    football HAS to be fixed. What coach would have his players sliding to kill plays instead of continuing to run time off the clock? The Chargers did it three times in the last 4 minutes.

    AFC Wildcard: LA Chargers @ Baltimore.

    that was definitely a touchdown. Game is getting interesting. For some reason I'm finding myself rooting for the Chargers, which is weird because I don't mind the Ravens.

    Baltimore wins this one

    NFC Wildcard: Seattle @ Dallas.

    In my heart I want the Eagles vs Chiefs, but in my head it's going to be Saints vs Patriots. I'm just saying if someone could knock off all the teams remaining, I think it would be the Cowboys. If it came down to the Rams against the Saints I think it could go either way.

    NFC Wildcard: Seattle @ Dallas.

    Dallas seems like the type of team that's only going to score enough to win. they seemed as though they would have been just as content winning when the score was 10-6 as they did at 24-22. Every time Seattle scored, Dallas came back to maintain the lead. Seems they played us like that too. They don't mop the floor with anyone but they're good enough to if they wanted to.

    2019 why don't we get games in 4k?

    I have no idea what you guys are talking about but I'm always willing to boost my post count, especially when I somehow lost 15K posts during the "upgrade" from the previous board.
