They were but as others have said, we were playing a terrible team. Sure, it's a good thing but remember that Detroit game last year? Yeah.

Personally, I was more excited about Joe Flacco starting in Baltimore, not looking terrible and getting a win. He's a former Blue Hen (like me), you don't see many of those in the NFL and when you do they never stick around. I'm not saying he'll be the next Rich Gannon but he might not end up in the AFL.

Sources: Brady done with severe knee injury
By Michael Silver, Yahoo! Sports
12 minutes ago

Buzz Up PrintMore From Michael Silver'New' Eli enough for Giants Sep 5, 2008 Taylor still on the mind of Redskins Sep 4, 2008
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is expected to miss the rest of the 2008 season with what two sources described as a severe injury to his left knee, suffered in the first quarter of the Pats’ 17-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs at Gillette Stadium Sunday.

While New England coach Bill Belichick said in his postgame press conference that he had no update on the status of Brady’s injury, a source close to the quarterback indicated it involved serious damage to the knee. That could ******* a torn anterior cruciate ligament and perhaps other ligament and cartilage damage.

“It’s bad,” a team source said. “We’re going to have to play without him.”

Brady was hurt as he stepped up in the pocket to make a throw to wideout Randy Moss. Chiefs safety Bernard Pollard, who was on the ground, lunged forward and struck Brady’s leg, which buckled as he released the ball.

Brady was helped off the field and was later led down a staircase by team officials, presumably to undergo tests.

Fourth-year quarterback Matt Cassel, who had thrown just 39 passes in his career before Sunday, replaced Brady and completed 13 of 18 passes for 152 yards and a touchdown. Cassel, who backed up Carson Palmer and Matt Leinart at USC, hasn’t been a starting quarterback since high school. He won a competition with Matt Gutierrez during the preseason to retain the job as Brady’s primary backup.

Who could forget those hideous powder blue and yellow uniforms from the Detroit game. I realize that the Eagles blew away a poor Rams team, but at the same time, they shut down the two bright spots on that offense. Steven Jackson had a rather pedestrian day... and Asante Samuel and Sheldon Brown were strong in coverage on Torry Holt.

That's a good warm up for Terrell Owens and Marion Barber next week... though Dallas clearly has a better offensive line than St. Louis.

Well clearly neither the Cowboys or Eagles faced a real test in their games today. Next weeks game should be good and cowboys have the advantage of it being at home. The teams match up really well and they are most likely the two best teams in the NFC. The Eagles are going to pressure Romo and cause him to make some mistakes, and the Cowboys are going to pressure McNabb and cause some bad throws.

They're going to have to pressure McNabb to have a chance at a win. I thought for sure the Browns/Cowboys game was going to be an air attack with two poor secondaries on the field, but the Browns just couldn't get it going.

We were a good team last year, lost some games last year on some very bad plays, like the muffed punt in game 1. We weren't far from having a vastly different record than 8-8.

McNabb is healthy and finally looks good. LJ Smith is healthy and finally looks good. Westbrook is one of the top players in the NFL and I think he's going to make a run for MVP this season. DeSean Jackson looks like an absolute steal in the draft. I'd like to see what he can do against a better defense so the Dallas game will be a nice test for him. DeSean Jackson and Quintin Demps are two rookies that instantly make our return game great. Our return game has always been a huge weakness in our team for quite a few seasons now, but it's suddenly become a big strength of ours.

I feel that ever since the first Championship game loss to the Rams in 01 the defense has been on a slow steady decline. It's pretty much rebuilt now and with the exception of Dawkins, it's young. Our defense has the chance to be great this season and I feel it will definitely be the strength of our team and cause us to be a very difficult team to beat. Our dline, although small, is very fast and can get penetration. Our linebackers are big and fast. For once our linebackers aren't a weakness on our defense. They aren't known on the national level because they all are very young, but they've shown they can play. And of course we have what can be the best secondary in the league.

I look around the NFC and the Eagles and Cowboys are just on another level than the rest of the teams in the NFC. It's going to come down to those two.

Um, no.

Unknown since they are all very young. Gaither is the most known of the group because he is entering his 3rd year. He played well as a rookie on the weak-side. Switched over to middle for last season and played well there, and now he's back on the weak side where he was making more plays. Bradley is in his 2nd year, a the 2nd of our two 2nd round draft picks we had when we picked Kolb. He didn't get to play until when TKO went out for the year at the end of last season. He looked really good in the limited time of only 2 games last season. Even though it was only the Rams, they still have a great RB that can run the ball, and Bradley looked great in shutting Jackson down. He lead the team with 9 tackles, 8 of them solo. On the outside is a 3rd round draft pick from the same year Gaither was picked in GoCong. He was a DE in college who is now our strongside linebacker. He spent his rookie season on IR, so last year was his first year of playing experience in the NFL in his new position. He's a fast guy who showed potential on blitzs last year, he should be more solid for us this year.

You seem to imply that the reason they are unknown is because they are bad, which is far from the truth.

Before the season I had us starting 1-2, losing to both Cowboys and Steelers since we usually start slow and hit our stride towards the end of the season. But now I think we have a good shot at splitting the next two games and going 2-1.

Banana03 for the most part has been accurate throughout this whole thread, but I don't see them going to the Super Bowl this year. I also want to see DeSean go up against some better corners.

Despite what Governor Rendell, Eagles fans and this city's sports writers try to feed me, I'm still not sold on this team being one of the best in the conference, let alone the division. This win against the Rams was the equivelant of their 56-21 blowout win last year against the Lions. Ya remember how they followed that one up? They lost to the Giants the next week, putting up only three points with McNabb getting sacked about a dozen times. I still believe, at best, this team finishes 9-7 and sneeks into the playoffs...and if I were a betting man, I'd bet money that Donovan doesn't last the year.

10-6 for the Bears? A bit much there, though I will say their D looked to be "back to form" Sunday night. Until Aaron Rodgers proves otherwise, I still think the Pack wins that division, while the Vikes and Bears could each go 8-8 or 9-7.

Blanton was scary tonight, but at least the bats are alive again.

He's basically pitching like Myers did before he went to Lehigh, no control and when he does throw one down the middle, it's bound to get crushed. If the Phils were to make the playoffs again this year, he'd be cut from the postseason roster just like Manuel did with Eaton last year.

Yeah, sucks for the NFL that every west coast team outside of San Diego sucks. This game last year was the Cardinals @ 49ers, but at least that one came down to the wire, from what I recall. The Broncos could surprise this year, Cutler could have a breakout year; having finally figured out what was ailing him last year (diabetes) could pay huge dividends for him.

As for those Bills, hopefully those games in Toronto aren't meant as a trial-run for a potential move to Toronto or Los Angeles...ya know the NFL is still "itchin' at the bit" to get a team back in LA.

http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/09/09/more-details-on-young-situation/

Terry McCormick of the Nashville City Paper has additional details regarding last night’s strange events involving Titans quarterback Vince Young.

Per McCormick, “[f]riends and associates” of Young called coach Jeff Fisher regarding Young’s emotional state, and Fisher called police at 7:00 p.m. local time.

He was located four hours later and met with Fisher at the team’s headquarters. Per WKRN-TV, police were present for the meeting as well.

“Given the totality of the circumstances, a bulletin was issued to all on-duty officers to be on the lookout for Young’s vehicle,” Metro police spokesman Don Aaron said. “Police negotiators were also placed on stand-by not knowing what his emotional status was.”

Aaron also acknowledged that “Young had been emotionally [sic] all day when he abruptly left his Williamson County home without his cellphone and sped away.”

We’re still confused as to why police negotiators would have been notified based merely on the fact that Young was missing, and this fact lends credence to rumors that some sort of incident occurred, possibly at the team’s facility.

Yeah, that whole situation's really starting to get bizarre. Supposedly Young had to be basically forced back out onto the field in the Jags game after he had thrown an INT, and that was before the injury occurred.

Our defense has the chance to be great this season and I feel it will definitely be the strength of our team and cause us to be a very difficult team to beat. Our dline, although small, is very fast and can get penetration. Our linebackers are big and fast. For once our linebackers aren't a weakness on our defense. They aren't known on the national level because they all are very young, but they've shown they can play. And of course we have what can be the best secondary in the league.
Awesome job.

Still think the Eagles and Cowboys are the best two teams in the NFL. Our teams only going to get better when we eventually get our two starting receivers back to go along with DeSean. Also if DeSean Jackson keeps playing the way he's playing, opposing defenses are going to start to have to account for him, and that's only going to free up Westbrook.

That week 17 game is going to determine who wins the NFC East, and probably also the number 1 seed. I've got tickets to that game, should be great.

Trent Edwards seems much more confident this year. At least based upon highlights, it seems as if everything is starting to come together for them.

I'm so torn for week 3. I have Roethlisberger, Hines Ward, and the Steelers D in my fantasy football league... and yet I want the Eagles to win. My other option is to start Matt Schaub, Benard Berrian, and pick up whichever scrub defense is left. Damn you football gods!

I completely agree. I kept checking ESPN.com and profootballtalk to see updates. When they changed it from "leg" to "ankle" it made it seem less serious.

It was tough to see on TV. On one of his incomplete passes in the early 4th quarter it looked like DeSean was running deep at least 3 or 4 steps ahead of the defender on the replay.

Seriously, WTF? It boggled my mind that Pittsburgh stuck with the passing game, especially considering Ben's shoulder, throughout the game rather than goin' with their bread 'n butter of just runnin' the ball down Philly's throat. Pitt's coaching staff surely knew that after watching his D get embarrassed against Dallas six days ago, Jim Johnson was gonna go full throttle with blitzes. But yet they let 'em beat the crap outta Ben anyway.

As for Westbrook, if it doesn't turn out to be season-ending, I think this injury will keep him out 6-8 weeks, and it'll be one of those things where even when he is cleared to play, he still won't be 100%. If the offense shows it can manage without him next Sunday night in Chicago, then I guess I'll take a sip of the Kool-Aid and say that this team will at least make the playoffs (keep in mind, Eagle fans, both the Giants and Cowboys are 3-0).

It's not one game the Eagles defense played great, it was two games. One early season game against a division rival on the road on Monday Night in by far the best division in the league doesn't define this defense. The Eagles defense will not let up 40+ points again this season, and I'll be shocked if they let up 30+ points at any point in this season. They are too talented, too well coached, and far too fast to let that happen. I'm glad the Dallas game happened, it's only going to make our defense better.

The Steelers played like shit? Way to completely avoid giving credit to the Eagles defense as to why the Steelers played like shit. Completely dominant defensive performance by this defense against a top AFC team. And they did so after a short week having played half way across the country on Monday Night.

Also, the Eagles in three weeks have faced Stephen Jackson, Marion Barber, and & Willie Parker and yet they have what is the top ranked run defense in the league.

Yea... yea... Eagles lost... Redskins beat the Cowboys... somehow the Chiefs won... but this is such a shame. I heard about the incident when it happened, but I didn't think it was serious because there weren't a lot of facts about it:

http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/news?slug=ap-jaguars-collier&prov=ap&type=lgns

Doctors: Shot Jacksonville lineman is paralyzed

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP)—Jacksonville Jaguars offensive tackle Richard Collier, shot while sitting in a car outside an apartment complex earlier this month, is paralyzed below the waist and his left leg was amputated, his doctor said Monday.

Collier was on a ventilator for about three weeks and has no memory of the shooting, said Dr. Andy Kerwin, a surgeon for the University of Florida at Shands Jacksonville hospital.

“His overall condition has improved greatly,” Kerwin said. “We expect him to be discharged soon.”

Kerwin said Collier suffered 14 bullet wounds to the back, left groin, left legs and right buttock. In addition, a bullet severed his spinal cord, causing the paralysis. The amputation was the result of damage to his left leg and groin, where blood clots formed. Five bullets alone were removed from his urinary bladder and the 26-year-old player also had bouts of pneumonia, infections and renal failure.

Still, his condition has been upgraded to good from critical.

Collier will undergo physical therapy to learn how to move from his bed to a wheelchair. He will never walk again, the doctor said.

Collier’s agent Jeff Jankovich said the player’s family wanted to make sure Collier understood what had happened to him before releasing details to the public. He said they even kept the Jaguars in the dark.

“He has extreme grief for a lifetime of dreams he won’t be able to fulfill,” the agent said.

Jankovich refused to say specifically when Collier would be released, citing security concerns.

Collier and former teammate Kenneth Pettway were waiting for two women outside an apartment complex early Sept. 2 when a gunman fired into the vehicle, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. Pettway was not injured.

The motive behind the attack on Collier is unknown, but investigators said earlier he appeared to be targeted. Police have made no arrests in the shooting.

Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio and several players attended the news conference.

“It’s a tragedy this young man was caught up in this violence,” Del Rio said. “It’s a great tragedy for a young man who had such a promising future.”

Offensive tackle Tony Pashos said the attack on Collier has been difficult for his teammates. “I think about him a lot,” he said.

Collier was in his third year with the NFL after graduating from Valdosta State.

He was the third NFL player shot in the past 18 months. Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor was fatally shot during what police said was a botched burglary attempt at his Miami-area home in November. Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was killed when his rented limousine was sprayed with bullets minutes after leaving a New Year’s party at a club in 2007.

If I remember correctly, Westbrook sparked them out of that funk against the Giants. Sadly, right now his ribs may not allow for that.

As much as I want to believe in the Eagles this year, something just isn't clicking. It was just on offense, but then the D let Clinton Portis run all over them. Bottom line is that the D needs to start forcing turnovers and McNabb needs to move the ball down the field better... well, Andy Reid actually needs to call a better game. They were so efficient on the first drive and then they just couldn't move the ball.

Also, take David Akers out into the pasture and shoot him. I've always been a big fan, but he's been the second least accurate kicker over the last three years.

They were so efficient on the first drive and then they just couldn't move the ball.

Also, take David Akers out into the pasture and shoot him. I've always been a big fan, but he's been the second least accurate kicker over the last three years.

Where the hell is Banana for some good Eagles vibes?? I need a pick-me-up! :(

Besides the Washington game the defense was producing turnovers just fine. It goes back to what Sheldon Brown said last year. They can get more turnovers but that means nothing if the offense does nothing with it. Our redzone offense was pathetic last year and they really did nothing at all to fix that this season. They were banking on a healthy LJ Smith being able to magically fix the redzone offense. They also went out and got Booker and unsurprisingly it seems like he will amount to nothing during his time here.

And Andy Reid is a huge problem, his play calling has been terrible, something that has been consistent throughout his career. I've always given him the benefit of the doubt due to what he was able to do with this team in the earlier half of this decade, as well as the surprising run we made in 06. It's still very early in the season and the 3 games we've lost have all been close where we had chances to win but just couldn't do it. If the NFC East wasn't as good as it is and the schedules for all the NFC East teams as easy as they are, I would have more hope for a turnaround, but with the latest Westbrook injury it seems unlikely.

Also with Akers, he just has not been the same kicker since they got rid of Koy. He was a great kicker with him, they got rid of him and he went to shit. They signed him for the playoffs and he instantly got good again, then once koy was gone again he went back to being a very inconsistent kicker.

They are such a frustrating team to be a fan of, because you know they are capable of doing better then they are. We've had a chance to win every game we've lost in the 4th quarter this year but haven't been able to do so due to poor coaching, mental mistakes, and what appears to just be an overall lack of energy on both sides of the ball.

Hopefully they will be able to escape from San Francisco with a win and come out of the bye week after that a focused team. The season isn't over yet but they need to get their shit together and put together a decent sized winning streak.

Our defense has the chance to be great this season and I feel it will definitely be the strength of our team and cause us to be a very difficult team to beat. Our dline, although small, is very fast and can get penetration. Our linebackers are big and fast. For once our linebackers aren't a weakness on our defense. They aren't known on the national level because they all are very young, but they've shown they can play. And of course we have what can be the best secondary in the league.

Come on Eagles fans, after 10 years of watching Andy Reid and Donovan McNabb at the helm, you ought to know what you're gonna get with this team by now! Seriously, after all the years of comin' up short with this current regime, what seems clear to me is that Reid and McNabb are just not clutch performers. They've always had a tendency of lookin' great in the games they are expected to win (Rams, Lions, etc.), and even in big games against top competition they can look great in the first half, but in the second half and especially late in the 4th quarter trailing, Donovan cannot make the plays to win the game and Reid can't call 'em.

I must say, watchin' how the Eagles have lost in the past two games has had me laughing my ass off, mainly because the Phillies are doin' so well and I couldn't care less about the Eagles right now. It's much easier to listen to Andy explain how it's his fault and he's got to have a better game plan and Donovan complain about how he thinks this team is so much better than their record when I've still got a baseball team to cheer for.

Blaming Reid and McNabb on everything is a cheap argument. We've lost some close games to some really good teams and it just doesn't come down to that. Neither are perfect but the bottom line is we have just made mistakes (whether it be poor clock management, our defense giving up a long play, making David Akers attempt a really long field goal instead of punting and backing the other team up, etc.) and with the NFC East being so good, and those other teams playing so well, the mistakes have really cost us. You can't put our wins and losses squarely on the shoulders of two guys. That's just ridiculous. It's a team that is failing. Those two can't work miracles.

Of course I wanted to see 'em score touchdowns on the last drives of the past two weeks, but as I expected, they found a way to screw things up as we've all witnessed so many times now.

While I'll admit that maybe screw-ups in past years can be blamed on the team as a whole, I really feel that Reid and McNabb are responsible for the losses so far this year. Whether it's a fumbled hand-off in the Dallas game, or poor play-calling in the last minutes of the Bears and Redskins games, those two bare the brunt of the responsibility for those failures.

Ya gotta be delusional right now to believe that this team is a playoff team, nevermind a Super Bowl caliber team. Before Sunday's game, we knew the Giants and Cowboys were better than us, and apparently now, so are the Redskins. Sorry guys, last time I checked four teams from one division cannot all make the playoffs.

I was referring to you how you said you could careless about the Eagles now that they have a losing record and instead now care about the Phillies more because they are in the Playoffs. Fairweather talk right there.

It'll certainly be an uphill climb for the Eagles to make the Playoffs with the hole they have dug themselves in this early in the season. But it's not like they have been getting blown out in the games they lost.

Against Dallas they lost by 4 points, and should have won that game.
Against the Bears they lost by 4 points, and should have won that game.
Against Washington they blew a 14 point lead and ended up losing by 6 points. I don't think they should have won though since the Redskins just flatout played better than them for the majority of the game.

If they escape San Fran with a win without Westbrook they will head into their bye 3-3. Arguably they will thus be done the toughest part of their schedule. If they can get their shit together during the bye week and get Westbrook, Curtis, and Abiamiri they will still have a shot. Championships and Playoff teams aren't determined in September. Again the odds are against them, but it's absolutely foolish to throw in the towel.

I'd be more interested in the Phillies even if the Eagles happened to be 5-0 at this point. It's frustrating to me that a lot of people in this town would still rather bide their time by making excuses for a team that might not even make the playoffs in the Eagles, rather than being thrilled about and supporting a team that's in the playoffs right now and kickin' ass thus far in the Phillies.

I know, I know, this is a "football town" and all, but we're talking about the early part of an Eagles regular season vs. Phillies playoff baseball. I'd rather get behind the team that's been bustin' their asses for over 6 months now and has the opportunity to do somethin' special than the team that's only 6 weeks into it's season and already making excuses for their underachieving play.

I hate to say it, but at this point, I'm agreeing with Chuck=Zero with the Phillies vs. Eagles discussion. I could careless about the Sixers and they've been the only team that has won in my lifetime... and I was like two years old when that happened. I'll never stop bleeding midnight green... don't let this seem like I'm "fairweathered", but right now, I'm more focused on the Phillies heading into the NLCS. I want to see the Phillies or Eagles win it all in my lifetime. I, like a lot of other people, had expectations that the Eagles would at least be the second strongest team in the NFC East... hell Dr. Z had them in the Super Bowl and each week that seems less and less likely

Pale Blue, you're also right. It's a team failing on multiple levels. I was a bit hasty in blaming Akers leg or Andy Reid's play calling. In the past, there always have been reasonable excuses to the failure... or at least something that I as a fan could accept... justified or not. This year has been almost as difficult to watch as the 2005 season after T.O. was jettisoned and McNabb went down. What's the answer to fixing the team after this year? What is left to improve? This team, minus lacking a true #1 receiver, should be solid at every position. Don't get wrong, I have't thrown in the towel, but I don't see any indication of this slide stopping. So they're probably going to bully San Francisco, Atlanta, Seattle, Cincinnati, and Cleveland the way they did with St. Louis. That's not enough to be the best in the NFL. That makes them barely above adequate.

Eagles look great. Not a weakness on the team. Plus there have been two awful calls against them. A PI no call on DeSean Jackson near the endzone and a phantom PI call on Mikell.

Our defense looks sick.

The Eagles might win 8 games? Let's just throw out the fact that they won 8 games last year and are a far improved team this year.

We were a good team last year, lost some games last year on some very bad plays, like the muffed punt in game 1. We weren't far from having a vastly different record than 8-8.

McNabb is healthy and finally looks good. LJ Smith is healthy and finally looks good. Westbrook is one of the top players in the NFL and I think he's going to make a run for MVP this season. DeSean Jackson looks like an absolute steal in the draft. I'd like to see what he can do against a better defense so the Dallas game will be a nice test for him. DeSean Jackson and Quintin Demps are two rookies that instantly make our return game great. Our return game has always been a huge weakness in our team for quite a few seasons now, but it's suddenly become a big strength of ours.

I feel that ever since the first Championship game loss to the Rams in 01 the defense has been on a slow steady decline. It's pretty much rebuilt now and with the exception of Dawkins, it's young. Our defense has the chance to be great this season and I feel it will definitely be the strength of our team and cause us to be a very difficult team to beat. Our dline, although small, is very fast and can get penetration. Our linebackers are big and fast. For once our linebackers aren't a weakness on our defense. They aren't known on the national level because they all are very young, but they've shown they can play. And of course we have what can be the best secondary in the league.

I look around the NFC and the Eagles and Cowboys are just on another level than the rest of the teams in the NFC. It's going to come down to those two.

Are you kidding me? The media over the past few weeks has started to look at the Eagles has contenders. I'm sure week 1 didn't hurt that.

I think you're just sour because you know that the Giants are finishing no better than 3rd this year in the NFC East.

Do you realize that the Giants are going to miss the playoffs? Yes or no?

Still think the Eagles and Cowboys are the best two teams in the NFL. Our teams only going to get better when we eventually get our two starting receivers back to go along with DeSean. Also if DeSean Jackson keeps playing the way he's playing, opposing defenses are going to start to have to account for him, and that's only going to free up Westbrook.

That week 17 game is going to determine who wins the NFC East, and probably also the number 1 seed. I've got tickets to that game, should be great.

Besides the Washington game the defense was producing turnovers just fine. It goes back to what Sheldon Brown said last year. They can get more turnovers but that means nothing if the offense does nothing with it. Our redzone offense was pathetic last year and they really did nothing at all to fix that this season. They were banking on a healthy LJ Smith being able to magically fix the redzone offense. They also went out and got Booker and unsurprisingly it seems like he will amount to nothing during his time here.

And Andy Reid is a huge problem, his play calling has been terrible, something that has been consistent throughout his career. I've always given him the benefit of the doubt due to what he was able to do with this team in the earlier half of this decade, as well as the surprising run we made in 06. It's still very early in the season and the 3 games we've lost have all been close where we had chances to win but just couldn't do it. If the NFC East wasn't as good as it is and the schedules for all the NFC East teams as easy as they are, I would have more hope for a turnaround, but with the latest Westbrook injury it seems unlikely.

Also with Akers, he just has not been the same kicker since they got rid of Koy. He was a great kicker with him, they got rid of him and he went to shit. They signed him for the playoffs and he instantly got good again, then once koy was gone again he went back to being a very inconsistent kicker.

They are such a frustrating team to be a fan of, because you know they are capable of doing better then they are. We've had a chance to win every game we've lost in the 4th quarter this year but haven't been able to do so due to poor coaching, mental mistakes, and what appears to just be an overall lack of energy on both sides of the ball.

Hopefully they will be able to escape from San Francisco with a win and come out of the bye week after that a focused team. The season isn't over yet but they need to get their shit together and put together a decent sized winning streak.

how the hell does he not know there are ties in the NFL? Hasn't he ever looked at team standings or anything?

Way to scrape out a tie against the Bungles boys :banging:

It was beyond embarrassing. I am sort of thankful I did not see most of it. Not even letting the offensive coordinator call plays instead of Reid helped and McNabb just looked awful. It's going to be a long, cold winter.

Really hope Andy has the balls to start Kolb vs the Cardinals. I'm going to be at the game so I hope I get to see Kolb's first start. There's no logical reason start McNabb. The change has been made, it's time to let Kolb get real playing experience, and maybe by the seasons end we will have a good idea of what exactly we've got with him.

I got a little scared when the Bucs staked the Lions to a 17 point lead. It didn't help that there was an obnoxious Lions fan at my watering hole making an ass of himself... though it did make it sweet when the tide was turned

CLEARLY.

I would say if they finish at .500 it will be a miracle but they can't even do that because they TIED with the fucking Bengals.

Eagles have no power running game to speak of and a hit-or-miss defense. They're doomed.

Man I keep seeing ads for the Bucs and Panthers on MNF and can't fucking wait. It's been too long since I've tailgated... woot woot.

NFC South, that'll be one boring matchup.

Can't wait for the Eagles-Giants game Sunday. The snow will give the Giants the advantage, but I'm holding out hope for an Eagles win.

Yeah watching a couple of 9-3 teams battling it out is going to be much more boring than watching the Eagles get stomped by the Giants. Fuck you pal.
