GB pushed us down and walked all over us today. We had no answer for anything they gave to us today.

On the bright side there are only 38 days until Christmas.

If you don't pressure the top QBs, you will lose.

It was the Giants game in reverse. And just like the Giants game meant nothing, this game means nothing.

The Eagles aren't anything special when facing playoff quality teams but they are virtually unbeatable by bad and mediocre teams, and that counts for a lot. From the Raiders game last year the Eagles are 2-4 against playoff-caliber teams but are 12-1 against the others. This means that the Eagles are all but guaranteed to finish 11-5 at worst.

The only problem with this logic is we have to get past one of those elite teams if we want to get to the Super Bowl.

More like 2 or 3 of them.

Let's not kid ourselves. We know this current makeup is not a superbowl team. This opinion isn't based on yesterday's performance. Our RB has looked bad. Our QBs have been less than stellar and our defense has holes, particularly in the secondary. As is, this team is built to win 10+ games and to (provably) win a playoff game.

Anybody looking for a super bowl contending team better take a long nap until next season.

We can beat anyone at home and will struggle against good teams on the road. We have a chance, but it's small.
