Reggie Bush and Drew Brees have been playing on another level.

The rest of the Saints, have not.

Brian Moorman has as many touchdowns as Carson Palmer three weeks into the season.

Ryan Denney has more touchdowns than Chad Ocho Cinco, Braylon Edwards, Andre Johnson and Wes Welker combined. Combined.

After Archuletta, you could put me out there and I could be solid, haha. i completely understand your point of view now :D.

He has his drops...but he gets wiiiiiiide open deep. I don't think he is going to be everything a beastly guy like him should be, but he will turn out to be a 70 catch 900 yard guy.

He torched the lions D deep a few times this week, but him and JT didnt connect....1 underthrown ball and 1 drop. It will click sooner rather then later.

There ya go. If he had any time to get open downfield and a non-******** QB, he'd be killing it downfield. However, his OL and QB suck. It's not hard to hit the guy when he's five yards away.

Kyle Williams was a decent-solid starter for his first two years in the league, was rewarded with a contract extension this offseason, and now he just looks superb out there. It may not be McCargo, but we found a damn good DT in that draft.

Even with an awful record last season, the Ravens haven't allowed a 100 yard rusher in 21 straight games and counting. Absolutely amazing. Don't expect Mendenhall to do it either.

The Eagles have faced three Pro Bowl RBs this year. Steven Jackson, Marion Barber, and Willie Parker. The best ypc average any of these three has gotten is 3.5

Translation: Any attempt at running the ball against the Eagles will be swiftly destroyed by the beast known as Brodrick Bunkley.

Translation: Any attempt at running the ball against the Eagles will be swiftly destroyed by the beast known as Brodrick Bunkley.
Our D is stifling when it comes to the run, for the most part. And though Bunk does get a lot of credit, our LBs and the rest of our D-line should get some credit for it. Q has been helping out a lot as well, he's had at least 6 plays I can think of where he came screaming in from one side of the shot to make a great tackle before the runner could turn the corner. I can't wait until Abiamiri is back and healthy, he is great at the POA, and should improve our run defense even more.

Yeah, but Bunkley pretty much single-handedly ruins any chance at running up the middle. He's been phenomenal. He's never going to get amazing godly stats, but as someone who watched the '06 Michigan defense, I know a thing or two about great DT play that goes unrewarded in the stats department.

Exactly, I agree with all of that. I have been trying to get a lot of Eagles fans to understand this. Bunk will never be a sacks or stats kind of guy. He may never have a season where he gets over 6 sacks, and that is fine, because what he does is help the rest fo the defense. It sounds dumb, but a certain percentage of our front 7 stats should be attributed to him, as he has given the rest of them many more opportunities. There are a lot of Eagles fan who call him a bust because they are upset he doesn't get sacks, but that isn't what we are asking him to do, and I have been saying that since we drafted him.
