ok, so he's gonna pick the eagles based on his "ewing theory" and because "invincible" and "always sunny in philadelphia" are good shows and ryan howard's having an mvp season.

yea... that makes sense.
that's not what he was basing it off! he said they have an easy schedule and they are healed, they have good offensive and defensive lines

you really missed his point there, i'll even give you the actual quote from him starting here:

"everyone [has been] acting like they were a 6-10 team last season, when the reality was this: Their defense was decimated by injuries; they lost McNabb in Week 7 and Westbrook in Week 8; and the T.O soap opera and residual bitterness from the Pats' Super Bowl destroyed what was left of their season. Well, who has an easier schedule -- @Hou, NYG, @SF, GB, DAL, @NO -- over the first six weeks? With the exception of Dallas and Chicago, who has a better defense in the NFC? Why is everyone so willing to count out a team with a quality coach that's loaded on the offensive/defensive lines? Couldn't they do a reasonable impression of the 2005 Bears, only with a much better QB? I love the Eagles this season. More on this later."

He gave the other reasons as extra. This was his real write-up.

yes his fault that he was sacked by somebody who went completely unblocked...then he fixes his horrid first half (3-11) with a strong second half and should have had 3 TD passes if graham didn't drop the TD in the endzone. and he led the pats to a comeback win...again.

Now if the offense can figure out how to score a touchdown, they just might do halfway decent.

Too bad they still won, eh?

Thoughts after opening Sunday...


The Panthers really suck without Steve Smith.

I'll hold off judgement on the Eagles for a while longer. It was the Texans, after all.

A couple more games like that and Jake Plummer will be benched.

Drew Bledsoe is still Drew Bledsoe.

The farm down in Mississippi is looking like the better place for Brett Favre.

Amazing how good the Ravens can be with an offense.


I love the NFL.

Man if I was a Packers fan I wouldn't be too happy with Favre. He strung the Packers along all year and forced them to try to win now when rebuilding was desperately needed. Goes out and throws 15/29 for 170 yards and 2 picks in a shutout while their QB of the future sits on the bench.

I love the Packers....I love Favre...but I wish he would've let it go. Last season was bad enough

I hate losing to the Bears

the colts are the best regular season football team in the NFL, and have been for some time now (post season, on the other hand)... as opposed to the houston texans and detroit lions...


yea... i'll still be taking the giants in the next two games.

The offensive interference on Carter looked like a call that should have been made in last year's Superbowl.

that call was god awful, and the giants certainly would have been in much better shape if the call wasn't made, but the refs didn't make the ensuing interception that eli threw.

they played well enough to win, had a few penalties that were their own fault, a few ones that were very suspect, and three dropped interceptions, two of which could have gone for touchdowns if they were brought in.

the good thing is a lot of their mistakes are correctable mistakes... the bad thing is that, although eli played very well at times, he was at times still inaccurate... which remains the biggest problem the giants face.
