As far as I'm concerned there's still no excuse to not get the #1 seed. As I've stated before, I still think we can beat anyone, I just don't want to play the Pats in the Super Bowl.

Listening to the radio today, Glen Macnow was saying that Brady doesn't look like himself and said he had heard a rumor that he had injured his Achilles.

At this point I think it is so unlikely that the Eagles will get to the SB that I would not care which AFC team would beat the crap out of them in that game.

Teams can be quite fragile. You change a few parts not expecting much of a difference but they really under-perform. Did the fans of the Cowboys and Raiders expect what they've seen after their teams amassed 12+ Ws last year?

This Eagles team has been surprisingly resilient to its many losses--Sproles, Peters, Hicks, even A. Barbre at L OG in the offseason. L OG has been dicey at times this year. The special teams may be showing some signs of missing its captain.

Maybe one of the guys holding the thing together was Wentz. Will they loose some of the chemistry as well as the talent, the high success rate on 3rd down and in the Red Zone?

I'm assuming they are now only like a solid Wild Card contending team, on the level of Carolina. Of course they'll likely have the advantage of the #1 seed, but even with that, I think they'll need to have things go right to win their first playoff game.

I do, even with Foles.
Hell, if Eli can do it, so can Foles.

This is not blind faith in Foles, it's focused hate on the most fraudulent team of the NFL.
The Cheatriots have to end somehow.

Personally I think the team to beat is the Jags. I think they'll take care of either NE or Pit. They just seem to be getting more formidable with every passing week.

I hate them too. I hope someone else ends them and we play the Steelers or Jags. Either would be tough, but I just can't bear the thought of the Pats pulling out another one over us.

Then again if our secondary plays the way it did yesterday, we won't get past the first game against the Saints or Falcons.

I've been calling an Eagles-Jags SB for a few weeks now. wink.gif

It would be uncomfortable if that were to happen and the Eagles were to lose in the SB...again. I live in Jacksonville. wink.gif

Uncomfortable for who? All the Eagles fans who you live near? Or the Gators fans who don't know what you're talking about? wink.gif

LOL! Uncomfortable because the Jags' fans are about as fair weather as they come. I'll have to listen to them drone on about the Jags....
