Because that's exactly what I meant.  The Eagles are an extremely soft 3-1 team.  They are barely, if really any better than the Giants at this point.  They just won a few close games.  I don't think they are close to a championship at all.  They are just blowing their draft position. 

Their only loss is to the only team left that is undefeated.

Ask that Chargers D how soft the Eagles are after Blount ran most of them over.

If they get healthy, they are very dangerous.

They have a pair of good WRs, a stud TE, a solid group of backs, a mixed bag O-line that can dominate at times.

They are really good up front on D and they are missing a ton of players in the backfield.

This team could go 12-4 in an NFC where players like Cook and Jones are getting hurt left and right.

3-1 with 7 home games left... you focus on your butter soft Giants if you want soft.

Top 5 in rushing offense and top 5 in rushing offense sounds soft to you?

The Raiders and Eagles both played on the road vs. DC. Would you describe one of those teams as soft?

It looks like Dallas will be the only NFCE team with a W this week.

That didn't quite work out...Rams are no joke this season. Redskins still yet to play but may be Eagles only East team with a win.

Switzer still ruined that game. I knew the Rams wouldn't be an easy game, but up 17-6....Dallas gets the ball back. Offense is rolling, probably go up 24-6 at half. Instead it ends up being 24-13.

Bad 2nd half adjustments.

You guys won't win a SB with Garrett.  He's terrible.

Switzer is one of the most overrated players I have ever seen land in Dallas. I remember when he was drafted he came in to be the return guy and they drafted him in the 4th round. On a team where you could literally sign a guy off the street to be a return specialist, they wasted a draft pick on him. Now I am not saying that he is going to suck, but as well as the Cowboys draft, they were look at the "$" when they drafted him. Switzer should have fair caught that ball, rookie mistake.

"Dak is awful...AWFUL"

"Dak to Dez is killing this franchise"

That is Sunday-Monday Blues. The fact is that Dak isn't awful and he isn't a joke. They just lost, happens to every team in the NFL. He was never going to have the same season as he did last year.

My girlfriend is a cowboys fan, so I have to watch what I say about certain players. Insults towards Tony Romo are off limits lol!

I think you need to do an intervention for your girlfriend. Time to bring in family and friends.  "Look, you have a problem...you like the Cowboys.  We can help you overcome this.  The first step is admitting you need help."

Not possible. She is from Texas and has been following them since she moved there in 1992 when she was 4. She loves the Cowboys, TCU, the Rangers, the Mavs, the Stars. She gets VERY depressed when the Cowboys lose.

So, I would imagine a day like today is probably pretty awkward when the Eagles win and the Cowboys lose.  :roll:

What can I say...Dallas just isn't very good in any area, and right now that includes running the ball and protecting the QB.

Dak is getting killed right now, and it's hilarious...or sad, however you ant to look at it. He single handily won them the Arizona game, and even yesterday, made a few plays all by himself that got them going. Leads them to 30 points, none on a short field (as in the defense did not cause a turnover)...defense allows the Rams to score on what...like 8 straight possesions....and it's Dak's fault? ok

I did not love the checkdown on 4th and ten, but everyone else was blanketed and he was about to get sacked.

I'll put it this way. Though he has been far from perfect, if the rest of the team played to his level, they'd be 3-1 easily.

My only hope is that it's early in the season, the OL gells a bit and getting Sean Lee and David Irving back helps at least a little.

otherwise...this is a 7-8 win team

Because of terrible ownership.

It has to be embarrassing to see a defender of the visiting team gesturing for the crowd to make some noise to disrupt the offense...and they do :lol:

OMG beyond embarrassing. Looking at that crowd and hearing all the Eagles chants, you'd think it was a home game. Shame on that Chargers owner.
