The Bye Week break is behind us now.
I don't expect a miracle comeback by Mike Patterson or Jason Peters. I don't know how the heck Terrell Suggs pulled off a 6-month rehab from Achilles tendon reconstruction surgery...but I don't think anything like that is going to happen here.
The Eagles are 3-3...with more questions than answers.
This is gut-check time for the fans as much as the players and coaches. How many of us already have experienced friends or family members jumping off the bandwagon?
My most recent memory of a winning Eagles team whose season started out like this was the 2008 edition. We even had a quarterback controversy that year, too... But somehow, despite the naysayers, and rallying from a 5-6-1 record, the Birds pulled it together with a late run. They came within an inch of representing the NFC in the Super Bowl.
That's the kind of spirit I'm looking for right now at the 3-3 mark...
Look, if you break it down logistically, the Eagles must appraise their remaining schedule and set a goal of 7-3 the rest of the way. That would be the season in a nutshell. Going 5-0 against their own divisional opponents the rest of the way would probably seal the deal to make the playoffs as well--- but that is asking a lot.
As I write this, the Giants have beaten the Redskins with a late drive, and Dallas has outlasted Carolina. So none of our divisional rivals are going to roll over and play dead. This thing is going down to the wire.
But as we come back to practice and film study, and the coaching staff tries to tweak some kind of winning advantage into the sessions and meetings, it still boils down to this: finding a way to win 7 out of the next 10 games... just "find a way", even if it's not predicated on the stats or the matchups.
Here's the remainder of the 2012 schedule... Can you find 7 wins in this lineup?
- Week 13
- Week 16
Brizer.... Talking with my Buddy Dasher who owns the bottle shop.... He concurs... NZ have the market on Sav Blancs.... But a mid-priced company called Taylors from South Australia isn't to bad...WA around Margret River have some good ones too..(personally I think that is one of the coolest places on Earth) Otherwise stick to NZ...
and get stuffed
I'm gonna take a break too. Red wine sounds good, I have some 2007 shiraz in me pantry, think I'll celebrate the SF Giants huge win with some. CHEERS!
Man... I am going to the bottleshop for some Wine... something red... its cold and windy.... be back in 12 mins and 34 sec... (AVG round trip walking)
Boner, I watched the movie you said was hilarious with Adam Sandler "That's My Boy", OMG! It was a total train wreck. like 2 funny scenes the whole film. I blame you!
Mr Beanskiddley))) My nephewr grew some pubes finally... and he was so proud that he proudly told us about them. So... we waited until he fell asleep... and we snucked in... and pulled his drawers down.. and shipped those couple of hairs off with some scissors.
He cried for days.I think it damaged him for life. I mean... if he cant trust his family... then who can he trust?
IT WAS HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111!!!
I'mma mail you some mushrooms... but they are gonna be sleeping mushrooms instead... and when you fall fast asleep... I'mma snucked in and shear your beard off with some sheep shears.
I cant wait for this to take place.
@Jerky JB....and I mean this quite sincerely worried....
Thats possibly the fucking WEIRDEST shit you ever posted....
you drunk texaco bastard... At least you didn't Punch him in the arse and stuff a condom full of shampoo in his crack...
LIKE MY MATE IN BRISBANE DID to his little Bro on his birthday!!
I asked his Bro... he went RED and started punching the Bro again saying
'YOU Fucker!!!!! you said you weren't telling anybody else!!!!!'
A buddy of mine got me into BF3 (PC)when it came out... So I built a Kick ass gaming PC... BUT... I need a new motherboard..
Honestly been worrying too much about partying and Women.. Its been good to chill out and stay out of trouble...
I might grab a new motherboard on the way home.. But I will only be able to use it 1 week out of 4...
@Jerky fair enuff
@Beandip It all looks pretty spendy just to game online. Besides, I don't really have the time to game that much for it to pay off, seeing as how I own a shitload of online games for the PS3 that work perfectly fine. If I was loaded with $$$ I wouldn't think twice about it, but, I'm not. :(
@Jerky That guy is great... just shows you what you can get for your cash... Even his Cheapest PC's will Run BF3 well on low detail = great competitive speed..
@Beandip Will look through it
@Jerky Start here... The shit plugs together pretty easy
@Beandip The Spanish pop band? Not really.
@Jerky you any good with mecano?
@Beandip Yeah, give me the info. The PC I have now is way too slow for gaming.
@Jerky nah... Honestly... I should Teach you how to build a PC that you could use Online for it... It is 10 times better
@Beandip You should invest in BF3 for the PS3. it's a lot of fun online with buddies.
@Jerky Yep.... Never played it Online before either... Online gaming is heaps better with a kick ass PC
@Beandip So Madden is basically the only game you own for the PS3?
@Jerky Welp, its gonna blow for 3 days...
@Beandip in 4 days we'll be playing a fair game then. I tried to time the kickoff meter and I knew right there and then it wasn't gonna work out. Your easy ass TD drive was a clear sign of that.
@Jerky Pffftttt..... Fuckin kids
@Beandip Damn kids, tell em to do their effin homework or something productive!
@Beandip These tears are real! WAAAAAAAH!!
@Jerky Actually I just figured it Out... All the school kids just got out half an hour ago... = Internet gridlock\
Only playing eagle vs eagle... No advantages = No Jerky tears
@Beandip The Teans 3-4 was kinda gay too, I'm used to the 4-3. I should practice with a 3-4 though more often.
@Beandip Let the "knots" calm down a bit and I will. Its no fun to play someone with 56k...
@Beandip dial up?
@Beandip Odd bunch.
Its up to him... I got my own demons.. One thing tho... We got this Pact... If either of us have a Massive stroke and get all fucked up... the other one has got to jam a chocolate bar the stroke victims mouth and smother him with a pillow...
Thats us Evans Head Fisherman for you!! @Jerky
@Beandip Acoholism is no joke dude. My sister had a helluva time with it, finally off the booze and her life is a million times better off for it. Good thing she had a support system, not a lot of people do. So if you help him, then you're a good friend.
@Jerky whine....wheen...ween.....wine....fuck off professor
