I feel bad for the guys who got hurt or beat up in the Seattle loss. Most guys on the Eagles were hustling their guts out... The national media's treatment of the Eagles player personnel as non-hustling prima donna's or divas is inaccurate. That stereotype only applies to a very few disgruntled personalities on the team.
I feel bad about the season. To be 4-8 is turrible. For any team.
I feel like a guy who just woke up from a coma and finds out his wife is dating Chaz Bono. This is a weird season, as Brizer alluded to in one of his solo's here the past day.
There goes Marshawn again! I thought you had him!
One perspective on the loss to Seattle at their place after a 3,000 mile joyride is the Seahawks are a pretty tough team for anyone to beat at home. As I recall, the Seahawks beat a Ravens team there this year that is 8-3 now...
So with all that in mind, I'm not going to panic or overreact about the Eagles losing to a "bad team"--- especially since we are discovering the very things about ourselves that make us a "bad team"...
You can sense that even the Eagles organization knows they have now got to find a new direction for 2012. That will involve a lot of little adjustments and a few very big ones... Stay tuned.
Right now, I choose to chillax on the worrying...and focus on the excitement and challenge coming up for Eagles fans as we play out the current season and move toward the 2012 Draft.
I also need to thank guys like Colt Anderson and Nnamdi Asomugha for playing their butts off Thursday night. And I need to study Seattle's offensive game plan for back-to-the-future reference.
Seattle (5-7) prevailed the old-fashioned way with its defense and a dominant ground game Thursday night that allowed quarterback Tarvaris Jackson to turn the clock back 40 years or so. In a pass-first league that has three quarterbacks on pace to break Dan Marino's single-season passing record, Jackson attempted just 16 throws. But he completed 13 of them for 190 yards, a touchdown and a passer rating of 137.0.
Adding injury to insult, the Eagles lost special teams ace Colt Anderson for the season to a torn left anterior cruciate ligament and cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha indefinitely to a concussion and stinger. Both players were out of the game by the time the Seahawks' Steven Haushka kicked a 49-yard field goal to take a 17-7 lead into the locker room at halftime.
I doubt Nnamdi will be playing in the Eagles' next game, despite what amounts to a mini-bye-week. Andy Reid did say Friday that he expects quarterback Michael Vick, who missed his third straight game Thursday, to start the Eagles' next game on Dec. 11 at Miami.
Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (hamstring), offensive lineman King Dunlap (concussion) and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (ankle) are "making improvement" with their respective injuries, Reid said.
Meanwhile Reid is also blasting the NFL Network for their candid camera shots of an apparently pouting or sulking DeSean Jackson on the sideline during Thursday's telecast. The media is having fun with that part of it, for sure, and tying it all in with Peanut's controversial "no pay, no play" alleged conspiracy.
Just another emotional angle on a very grey week in a very weird season for Eagles fans...
Naw... but seriously... I'm shocked you people don't know The Honey Badger. Down here in the Souf... it's a phenomenon!
I saw Peg Bundy on The Soup this week. She wasn't looking so good to me. At one time... she was really, realy, really hot tho.
Ha... that rich white girl gets to go to a private school whilst poor Anton has to go to community college... their future sealed by a Dr. Pepper promotion...
Just restarted EEB. for all you Ipad/Iphone and Android users need to get the app dat is being advertised its "YardBarker" so you can take DMac everywhere you go.
so I'm liking Decastro, Manti Te'o, maybe one of the QBs or Dre Kirkpatrick... sumptn like that for now...
I think barkley is very close to nfl. Ready. I also think that rg3 is as well. I'm not a huge fan of the athlete/qb but being 36 that's all I've known as an eagles fan. Griffen seems like 1 he can make the throws he needs to make in the nfl and more importantely he seems like he can make the reads.
Yeah da Hokes seem to be just dat! @TheGreatJB99
like the skunk ape?
Sorry sum of us don't spend all day on da internets and stuff and stuff and stuff... @TheGreatJB99
Dat would be Russel Wilson me thinks.... @l30p1221n1
@l30p1221n1 good ? Another good question is. What rich white girl and who the f is Anton ?
I luv dat show Boner! I can't believe you was sour on it! @tboned208
@l30p1221n1 Honey Badger all the way!
I no longer want to draft him... had visions of Crabtree... I says we wait til the 3rd or 4th round and take Brian Quick for our WR... I'm firm on that one now...
@Demappulls! its doogie! How I met your mother. Funny as hell.
@TheGreatJB99 it was watchable. But can't hold a candle to the original
Boner warched it da udder night said it was turrible!
@Spiffo Yeah, but even better than that. You wouldn't think that proof of a new animal in the US could be outdone... but it has!
@Demappulls! Says the guy with 7,400+ points!
I see Spiffer is jumpin in on the hater-aide bowl!!! @TheGreatJB99
