From being the #1 seed in the NFC?
Pila
It’s a long season and no-one is immune to injury. But if things we're to stay as they are, I think Seattle is a worthy contender.

Their offensive line is hot garbage. If that’s our biggest threat, I’ll take it.

I still think the Falcons are the biggest concern, but that loss today was awful and Julio doesn’t seem right.

Julio is injured. You're right, they have plenty of time to turn it around.

We have a long way to go.

Atl, Car, Was and Sea are obstacles. Don't sleep on Ari with the pickup of AP.

There is a ton of football to be played.

Only injuries at this point. We just need to keep at it.

Don't forget, "themselves." If they fail to prepare, fail to promote a team-first spirit, fail to leave it all out there every week, they will weaken themselves.

At the beginning of the year did the Raiders' fans think anyone could stop them from being a playoff team? Today OAK lost to the Chargers--in Oakland with Carr at QB! Now they are 2-4 a year after going 12-4 and looking like a young up-and-coming powerhouse.

If you'd asked me last week, I would have said the Rams were my biggest concern. After AZ picked up AP and the news came out that David Johnson may be back before December, that offense could be a bigger problem come playoffs. Seattle has the defense, obviously.

Not the Redskirts.

LA Rams and Dullass are the biggest road blocks in the conference.

Or the Niners or the Broncos.

The 'girls, the Rams, the injuries already suffered and those that have not yet occurred seem to be the dwindling candidates for the answer to my original question.

Are you enjoying any of this? Joe! This is magic, no matter how it ends up. Enjoy it!

Saints, Rams, Vikings, Seahawks, Cowboys and Falcons are all capable of doing damage which is why we need to keep out in front and get the #1 seed.

Foolish youngsters don't know how to appreciate how rare and wonderful something like this is, guess it just takes more years of experience for those of us oldsters to get how good we actually are.

They just dismantled one of the top defenses in the league without their all pro LT and their starting TE. When Ajayi gets more comfortable with the offense and Ertz is back healthy, they can do damage to anyone. Add Darby to a surprisingly productive secondary and they'll be harder to score on. This team is amazing right now.

Seattle can barely beat the skins... I don't see them as any better then the panthers, and we know how that ended.

Another week and another observation regarding potential spoilers. Dallas, New Orleans and the Rams are the top 3 teams that can get in the Eagles way.

Not the 'girls - at least not this time. Maybe next time they'll be in a position to play spoiler.

The Rams are still a threat - of those that remain on our schedule, that is.

The Saints and Vikings are only a game behind in the race, so . . . it's still too early to tell. But I like our chances to be #1 seed in the NFC.

From a fan going back to 1969 , I totally agree . ac6.gif
