I'm not either of those. Maybe I just was psychologically damaged growing up watching the Eagles from the late 60's to the late 70s when they did not even have one winning season.

I did not get to watch the first half. A dear friend was diagnosed with brain cancer and had to address some of her personal matters.

Nick and the O did more than their part. The STs did more than their part. What's up with the D? I wonder if both Cox and Jernigan are nicked up.

Joe, if you're a professional pundit or a paid commentator, I get it. Otherwise, why not enjoy what they're doing? You didn't expect them to accomplish what they have, but I bet it's been fun watching it. I just don't understand why you keep saying they can't or they won't. Have some faith, man.

This team is more than 53 players, and if you don't see that and appreciate what a team like that can be capable of then you're missing a lot of the fun. There's more talented teams and there's healthier teams but I can't think of many teams that have bonded the way these guys have. I laughed and scoffed at Lurie's "emotional intelligence" thing, but I've come to think that maybe he found the right catalyst (Wentz/Pederson) to make that like a magic wand.

Sorry to hear about your friend.

The major problem was scheme. Just like last time, NYG used quick passes, slants etc and then did a stop and go for big burns. DBs tackled poorly. We didn't utilize any mush rush or drop DL into coverage to mess them up. We had a whole game of film to prepare for it and we didn't.

STs played great. Foles had an excellent game. Calm, in control, and really let his WRs go get the ball.

Win next week and we got home field throughout.

Clean up the D and we have a shot.
