  • Let me get this straight, after our win and Dallas's loss this past week we are basically in the driver's seat for the NFCE Title due to the fact that we beat Dallas already once correct? If you had told me that the day after we lost to Tennessee and Dallas beat Indy I would have said you were crazy. 8)

    • Absolutely incorrect. The Eagles and Giants are both a game back of Dallas in the NFC East. However, both teams have 3-1 records in divisional play. If the Falcons beat Dallas and the Eagles beat NY, the Eagles will be in first and will have the tiebreaker over both teams going into Week 16, which will be @ Dallas. The division is not locked up, but Dallas can clinch the title by winning out. A lot will be determined this weekend.

      • Predictions for the game at all? I see a low-ish scoring game in the 24 point range for the winner. I think with Strahan out, the Eagles can do a little more. I think the team can score, but they need to get the D off the field early and take a lead. This will be a hard fought game. I expect Reid to outcoach Coughlin, and I don't foresee the team collapsing in the 4th quarter again. Jacobs and Barber will run over us a lot, but I think the secondary is better equipped to help.

        Prediction: Eagles 23, Giants 17 in a nailbiter. Homer call, and I won't bet it. I just like the way our guys are playing.

        • I love our momentum going into this game, and despite their win against Carolina last week, you gotta like the way the Giants have been playing lately if you're an Eagle fan. I still think the game is going to be extremely close.

          Obviously, I love what I see out of Garcia. He's not putting up spectacular numbers and making huge plays like McNabb does, but he's not turning the ball over. That's all I can really ask for out of my backup quarterback. He's done a fantastic job to this point, but I'm not going to be overly optimistic. However, I do like his chances against the Giants.

          For whoever asked about rooting against the Eagles since our chances aren't good..Never in a million years. Do we have a chance against teams like SD, Baltimore, Indy or New England? Not a chance in hell...But the benefit of being in the NFC is that we don't have to face a team like that until the Superbowl. And if we were to make it there, I would hope that a veteran QB surrounded with great weapons combinded with a solid defense would be enough to push us through. Of course with a little bit of heart and luck on the side.

          There's no pressure, that's the thing. We're just enjoying the ride right now and seeing how far we can make it. We're not going to be expected to win much, so it's not like we can say we'd be disappointed if we didn't do such and such. Just gotta sit back and hope for the best.


          The linebacker situation..Gotta love Gaither. Of course he could just be playing off of a high right now, but I'll take it. I don't think McCoy will even factor much into the competition next year, but instead serve as a reserve/special teams player.

          On the other side, Dhani Jones should be gone next year. He's underachived and we'd benefit greatly salary cap wise should we get rid of him. The main reason I'm so strongly against a first round LB for the Eagles this year is because Chris Gocong and Omar Gaither would be slated as the starters at outside linebacker, and you just don't add another rookie LB to that duo, especially in a defense that takes so long to learn. A solid free agent pickup to replace Dhani Jones would be ideal. Then, you play Gaither and Gocong on the other side.
          Nick Foles are you really my daddy??!..?

          • I still don't like Garcia. He's too small and has to run out of the pocket to have a quality long pass, well a consistant one. I like Feeley alot more and think he should be the starter. He also has done very well with us in the past.

            Stallworth still hasn't been re-signed and I'm not to high on him, he makes nice plays like last week and with D-Mac but I don't like his overall consistancy. He's only shown up for a small percent of the plays. Some games he disappreas, others he's the MVP. If we get a good chnace to draft a good WR, then Donte goodbye but if not he may be our only hope for a good WR next year (starting) If he gets consistant

              I was just saying if we win out then we win the division, we wouldn't need any outside help.

                Only problem I have is the injuries..I haven't seen him really screw up on the field to this point. He doesn't put up consistant numbers because he's not always targeted..

                  He's doing pretty well right now though, obviously he's not ideal, but he's just our backup. He's been playing better than expected lately, and if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If he's horrible against the Giants then sure pull him, but he deserves the Eagles fans support, during the Panthers game when the fans booed him after getting up after Jenkins landed on him was just classless and embarassing for the fans a whole.

                    .....No. He'll be signed long before the Eagles have a chance to draft a good WR, and then they'll be forced to.

                      We have a few needs, but WR is not one of them. Those games that he "disappeared" in were mainly because he was slow coming off his injuries. We have a lot of young and talented receivers and it would be a horrible decision to draft a top prospect WR in the first round because the pick could be much better spent on a safety or linebacker.

                      • That was one hell of a game. Dawkins is still a monster.

                        • I believe I said Philly would make the playoffs even with Garcia, things are looking good.

                          And you doubted me Dillen.

                            Now that we're in the playoff hunt, Dawkins has turned on the A game. I love Dawkins.

                              To be fair, no one could guess that Garcia would play this good.

                                I did, which is why I picked them to make the playoffs, even without McNabb, well ok not this good.
