I agree. HFA is irrelevant if we lose the first playoff game...

This is true, but is it because Wentz isn't there or have they just gotten too full of themselves. We all know 11 magic has pulled them out several times, but the rest of the team had been playing better. Loss of Wentz is obviously a drop off, but there seems to be a need for a lot of soul searching and this is where Pederson has to step up too.

After the Giants' game I thought the Eagles offense could at least be competitive but now, who knows.

The Eagles D let them down against the Giants but against the Raiders, made far more big plays than they gave up.

I don't know what this team is.

Foles missed Ertz in the End zone. At times there seemed to be a disconnect with a receiver. I suppose we can hope that they'll improve somewhat with reps. Will it be enough to win even one playoff game?

Sometimes strange matchups make a significant difference. For example, in one of the games in which the Eagles needed rookie CB R. Douglas, they were playing against a team with big, but slow WRs. That was a great matchup for Douglas and the Eagles were fine. If he had to cover a fast WR, the results might have been different.

The Eagles fans get a home playoff game. That's a lot more than most of us expected coming into the season. I bet the D keeps them in that game somewhat like they did against the Raiders.

Too funny......it was a clunker for the offense. It was a tough night for any offense. Cold, windy, your running back puts it on the turf.
It was always going to be a tough game in those conditions. They will get Wiz back, they will be fine.

The inportant thing was the defense finally did well.

Winning the ugly games is an important ability, too.
