But this is NOT a Superbowl contender this year. As anyone that says we are, even before this game, is full of shit.

But Bradford is still healthy X! He's going pass us all the way to a Super Bowl 5 yards at a time

This is all about the O Line. This not like last year where guys were out and you had good reason to hope for better things upon their return. I've not heard that anyone has been injured or nicked up. I assume they don't yet have optimal communication but that can't be most of the problem, can it? Could this really be the offense we will see this year?

If the O Line does not improve, he will have to steal Andy Reed's playbook.

How will they be able to use their up tempo offense if they can't move the ball. The D can't be successful when time of possession is 40 min to 20.

The team's strongest position, ILB, is now one of the weakest. The Hicks draft pick now looks great. He had 7 tackles and the big sack. He looks like a player--unlike M Smith who was inactive today but will likely be active next week. I don't really fault Hicks for the 30 yard pass against him. What other defense expects a LB to cover a pass catching RB specialist 30 yrds downfield? Kendricks is probably one of the few LBs in the league with the speed to do that but was fortunate to defend that play.

I suppose their plan was to take away Witten. However, B Maxwell looks like he is going to have a long year. I wonder how much of it is his fault and how much of it is the scheme that predictably leaves him on an island. His angle on the lateTD pass was horrible. I imagine he was gassed but that was still ugly.

Bradford makes me nervous. The look on his face was not that of a fighter. He might still be fine when he gets a decent O Line but can you imagine T Brady with that personality?

Wow, what is with all of the dropped passes? Then they get unlucky that they have tipped balls intercepted on catchable passes in successive weeks. Could it be that Bradford is more amped up in the game than at practice and so is throwing balls harder than receivers are expecting. The poor pass protection might also have something to do with that.

On a positive note, you gotta love the fight in D Murray. He was the best player on the Eagles O. I'd love to see the yards-before-contact on his runs today. It might be in the minus yards!

The goal line stands by the D were impressive even against a neutered Cowboy's offense.

It was nice to see J Huff do some positive things as a receiver. After last year he still makes me nervous.

It was encouraging to see Parkey make one look easy.

They don't currently look like an 8 win team. If you can't beat the decimated Cowboys in your own building when you have a huge advantage in penalty yards, who are you going to beat?

Of course the season isn't over.

We have fourteen games left, and on yesterday's evidence that is fourteen more losses. I think it's time to start watching college ball and work out who our next head coach will take #1 overall to be our new QB.

Yeah, and I'm certainly off of my 12 win prediction after that disaster. I bet Bradford is wishing he had signed that extension.

And after yesterday's non-performance we're all glad that he didn't.
