Stat #1 - You will stink in the opener.

That's it. What are you people thinking here? Texans beat the Eagles? R U nuts! We are about to reclaim the ranking of the most dominant team in the NFC. I'm afraid for every team in the NFL. Last season really left a bad taste in our mouths. The Steelers will be the first to feel the wrath tonight.

Watch and be afraid. Be very afraid.

Now we can chat normally.:rolleyes:

Lets all be honest here....

Yes, we are good at home openers. Yes the Eagles blowed last year. Yes the Eagles D is healthy. Yes we have a new scheme that could cause some breakdowns. But the game is at home and there is going to be alot of emotion going into the game. Im giving us a 50% chance of winning.

I would also like to comment that the Eagles wide recievers are currently crap. If they want to use their redic amount of passing against Dunta...game over son.

Finally, the NFC East is gross. They dont stand a chance unless....
1) Clinton Portis never returns...even though they picked up Duckett
2) TO destroys the cowboys
3) Eli Manning dies

1 and 3 are unlikely....

The Redskins are hyped up every year and look at what they do... nothing. They always get star players and it ends up being a mess.

As far as the Cowboys go, I cannot see them making playoffs this year. Everyone is chattering about them because of Owens. Yes, he is a HUGE playmaker but he will cause problems.

The Giants are looking like our biggest competition but you never know how a team will do. Injuries and other things play into a team's season so let's not hype them up yet until we are at least a few games into the season.

Our WRs are crap? We never had playmaking WRs, with the exception on Ownes for one year and this is 2006 (lol), but we still domintated the NFC this decade. Reggie Brown was an outstanding rookie last year and made a big impact. DO YOU KNOW WHO IS QB WAS? MIKE MCMAHON. We all know how awful a QB he was. Now imagine what it will be like with McNabb throwing him the ball. Pinkston is not that great but he can spread the field and you rarely see him drop a ball. Gaffney finally has a QB who will have time to actually throw the ball. Baskett will be a playmaker for this team. We have a lot of young guys with huge question marks over their heads but I think, by the end of the year, those marks will disappear and postive marks will be there instead.

2 is currently happening, thank heavens. Didnt take long for the trash to be seen as trash.

3. Eli stinks. He is nowhere near as talented as his brother. The only thing they have in common is that they choke in important games.


The Eagles will most likely finish second in the division. Washington will finish last. I can almost guarantee that.

Redskins will finish last. They get big playmakers every year in the offseason and end up doing nothing. I predict the same will happen again this year.

Westbrook is out tonight but he will be fine for Week 1. Westy already knows the plays and we know what he can do. No need to play him tonight.

I know all about the depth of my team. I eat, drink, sleep Eagles football. It's the PRESEASON. LOL! Every year they put guys out on injury to rest their hamstrings and whatever else that might need a little rest. Why put these guys out there to get stress it out even more. PRESEASON. Remember that.

What the heck are you talking about? LMAO!

Gaffney is already on the depth chart and working his way back. He had a great game last week. He had trouble learning the new offense and he is now doing fine. The law? He had a unregistered gun in PA and it was registered in Texas. He just moved there for pete's sake. LMAO! I would not call that trouble in any shape or form.

After looking at the most of input from the Eaglet fans in the last two days I am not surprised that 21 hours have passed and not one Eaglet can muster a response to some simple reasons why they will not win in our first home game during the Kubiak era.

I respect Eagles fans and at the same time never look them in the eye on Sundays unless I am armed with Tastycakes, Yoo-hoos and a hooded sweatshirt. But as scary, confident, educated and blindly loyal they are towards their brethern do not fear the eaglets.

I expect our game to be a close one, but one we will win. For two reasons, the team quit due to their attitude towards one another and have no depth and they got drilled by the zone blocking scheme last year against the Falcons and the Broncos.

Well, this is a good sign. Fans from other teams are actually coming here and at least making the attempt (cough, cough) to talk smack.

About half-way thru the season last year, they all showed up with jacks to try to keep our chins up, until they got the red-ass and accused us of throwing games just so we could draft . . .

Oh, wait a minute, we didn't . . .

Hold up, how many divison games did you win last year? I believe the record was somewhere in the region of 0-6, much like us..yay! Before you go saying 6-0, look at what has acctually happened to your team! The front office has slowly robbed your team of so much talent whenever a player asks for more money. This isn't the same Eagles team of 03 and 04, and sure as hell aint the same team from 05/ By the way, i think a lot of players were sympathetic to the TO situation...looks like you might be batteling more then the Texans on Sunday if you dont get your stuff together.

After looking at your first 6 games I think you need to be more realistic and look at 2-4 and maybe 3-3. You will definitely start out 0-2. Last year was a fluke for us with an under par coaching staff.Theres a new sheriff in town and his name is Kubiak, that in itself will mean a better team.As far as your final order in the standings I see it more like

Hold up, how many divison games did you win last year? I believe the record was somewhere in the region of 0-6, much like us..yay! Before you go saying 6-0, look at what has acctually happened to your team! The front office has slowly robbed your team of so much talent whenever a player asks for more money. This isn't the same Eagles team of 03 and 04, and sure as hell aint the same team from 05/ By the way, i think a lot of players were sympathetic to the TO situation...looks like you might be batteling more then the Texans on Sunday if you dont get your stuff together.


First off, I am not saying or never said that we will be 6-0 in the division. Most of those teams I listed are not even in the NFC East. LMAO! Those are the first 6 teams we play this year.

Second, last year's fiasco was because of injuries. Too many probowler out, McNabb injured all year, and we had more than a dozen good players on the IR for most of the year. Last year was last year. Has no effect on this year but the addition of better Depth.

Last, this team is together and even the coaching staffs is saying that they never seen a team working so hard together as this team. There is no hard feelings or any internal problems going on this year. None. So keep trying to fish that one out of a dried out lake.... nothing there.

And may I just add...how many 1000 yard rushers have you had the last few years? 1000/16=62.5... that means that your leading rusher has averaged fewer then 60 yards a game rushing! I dont think that qualifies Westbrook as a dual threat...he is a receiver that lines up in the backfield!


Do not need 1000 yard rushers. We spread the ball around a lot. There are not me me me in this team.

That is the same rhetoric I have heard from every camp that has been shown on NFL Network. What are they suppose to say. I don't know about this team they suck?

Last year against the Broncos with the system we now run ... the Eagles were beat 49-21 and gave up 255 yds rushing for an average of 7.1 yds a carry . For a new car who was the OC for Denver ?

I have been looking for a response to this for a day Earl. Just so they can see the stats and a reminder that they faced the Falcons and Broncos early in the season.

Did we have the players we have now on that team last year? The answer is no. Kearse had no help at all and now he does... HOWARD. This is the reason we have an offseason... to make traded and pickups to improve the team. We also have a big guy like Bunkley, Trent Cole (which is amazing), and other guys to fill that void. Hell, they held LaMont Jordan and the Raiders to -3 years. That dash is a negative. lol I think this Defense will be a Top 5 defense. Thanks for playing and good luck to your Texans this year. I hope they have a great year and only lose to the Eagles.

They did okay. First two possesions for us were scores. For them...first possession they had to punt. Second was a FG. 3rd was a fumble. 4th was punt. We only held them to 54 yards rushing the 1st half though. Held Lewis to 27 yards (3.0 avg). 9 attepts for 27 yards.

Philly's RB Mahe averaged 7.0 yards a carry but only carried the ball twice. Westy did not play.

yeah i remember good ole san diego in 2004. people thought they would be lucky to win 4 games that yr, especially since their #1 starting reciever was kevin dyson. well little did they know about the good complementary recievers like eric parker, reche caldwell, and the stud antonio gates. of course they still had ladanian. while on paper, the eagles dont have the best recievers, all it takes are some good route runners. if u have guys that run good routes, it wont matter what their name is because good routes = open looks. that will make any reciever look good...and donovan is the QB that can find anyone. he's proven that even b4 he had TO. im not taking the eagles for granted. we all took the chargers for granted b4 week 1 of 2004, and they embarrased us in our crib. im going to remain optimistic that we can win, but i wont trash talk and guarantee anything.

Alex Gibbs was in the Denver system...he went too Atlanta and turned Warrick Dunn into a Pro-Bowler and Atlanta into the top rushing team in the league (somewhat skewed because of Vick, I know). What you come to learn after watching the development of teams under certain coaches is that it is the system that enables players to succeed. Basically, these people (Shanahhan, Kubiak, Gibbs) know what makes a succesfull running game. Oh, and he Kubes coached two games already, we're 2-0.

I'm not big Texans supporter, but it seems like the Eagles aren't much better than the Texans. The Eagles have lost their best receiver, their top RB now has two bad wheels, and their QB is coming off a season-ending injury. The defense isn't all that great either. You can say the Texans stink, have an inexperienced, green coaching staff that doesn't know which end is up and won't win more than five games. But in the same breath, if you are a realist, you must admit that the Eagles aren't in much better shape except they have a much, much better coach. The Eagles are coming off a year where they finished in the cellar of their division. I don't see anything to be afraid of.

Traditionally the eagles value speed over brute size. Zone blocking is about as brutal as it gets and lbs. make a big difference. Pretty much they are overpowered.

Gaffney has good hands is truly meant to be a #3 slot receiver. He doesn't have the separation/speed to play on every down though.

The Eagles are my second favorite team. I give them about a 60% chance of winning the opener. I'm still not convinced they are back to 2004 (and before) form yet. I am hopeful.

In the NFC East, I think the Skins fall (their QB situation is a joke. Did you see their offense in those two playoff games?), the Giants will float around .500, and it will be a two-team race between Dallas and Philly.

Parcells has a history of making it work with problem children (LT, Terry Glenn, and Meshawn) as long as they perform on the field. Bledsoe looked good last year until Flo Adams (LT) went down. I think the defense they have put together will be great.

The Eagles front four on defense along with their secondary are great. My issues with the team are LB and WR. I hope Buckhalter stays healthy. Him and Westbrook make a good 1-2 punch. I also think McNabb will bounce back with no T.O. disrupting everything. 10-6 seems par for the course.

I agree with everything except for the bold. Parcells overlooked LT as well as the media until the sunset of LT's career. Glenn and Keyshawn were not as big as problems as they were out to be, but given the hype machine that follows Parcells he can spin anything he wants.

Parcells is the most most overhyped coach in the last 30 years in my opinion. The genius is in NE and LT retired long ago.

08-26-2006, 10:24 AM
If anyone is trying to build a case against the Eagles using the "zone blocking" argument, you need to include their two games against the Redskins last year in the scope of the argument. The Skins incorporated many aspects of the stretch and backside cut and go into their offensive system last year and Portis thrived in it - although in their game at home against the Eagles in November, the Skins could do nothing on the ground.

The Eagles have a little different look on their front seven this year. Darren Howard is a hand full, Bunkley and Patterson are very promising young players.

The Eagles are going to be a very tough opponent and they are going to bring the house against our OL and QB until we can prove we can protect. Zone blocking doesn't mean diddly squat when you're trying to account for blitzing linebackers. If the Texans can run the ball effectively, that will take the pressure off Carr and keep the pressure in check to a degree. That's a big if and one of the keys to the game.

The game is winnable for the Texans but just because we installed our version of the Denver offense doesn't mean the result will be the same, especially in the first week against a tough opponent. Kubiak will have his guys ready to play. So will Smith. I'm concerned about our secondary and the Carr panic meter. We can't afford to get behind by 10 or more early.

In the Atlanta-Phi game last year, it looks like it was Atlanta's defense (or Philly's inept and mistake prone offense - take your pick) that had as much or more to do with the Falcons winning that game versus their "zone blocking scheme." What exactly did Atlanta's offense do in that game after the first quarter that was so impressive? I see six punts and two lost fumbles in their last eight drives.

Kaiser Toro
08-26-2006, 11:09 AM
40 rushes at 5.0 yds per clip (29 att for the RB's, 132 yds) against 23 passing attempts for the Falcons spells taking time off the clock to have a rested defense and put pressure on the pass happy Eagles. It also must be noted that Trotter was kicked out the of the game.

The Falcons controlled the time of possession in each quarter. Not exciting for many, but effective use of a scheme that has worked against the Eagles D.

Sure, "controlling clock" is the obvious hindsight argument here, albeit a weak one.

Just a guess but I would think the odds are fairly well stacked against any team to come out with a win if they don't score any points on their final eight drives of any given game.

Dunn had three nice runs of 10 or more, but some of their rushing yards came from Vick and probably had little to do with "zone blocking." The Eagles D also had to contend with the Vick run threat which is a slightly different game plan than the Carr run threat.

Looking ahead, if the Texans don't score on their final eight drives or in the final three quarters against the Eagles on opening weekend, I'm fairly confident they won't win the game.

Some of those rushing yards came from Vick and probably had little to do with "zone blocking."

Looking ahead, if the Texans don't score on their final eight drives against the Eagles on opening weekend, I'm fairly confident they won't win the game.

I agree controlling the clock is a hyped residual benefit of a running game. That logic definitely passes muster in our travels throughout NFL history. Moreover, hindsight is what coaches base their startegy off of for the future. I have to agree with you once again that watching tape and looking at stats are awful predictors for trends to help us with the future.

I am fairly confident that if we are up 14-0 in the first quarter and we control the time of possession in each quarter we will win the game as the Falcons did. I know it is crazy and defies logic, but I am ignorant and a homer and that is how I base my opinions.

When were we up 14-0 in the first quarter of a game in the Capers era and stuck to a running game?

It also must be noted that Trotter was kicked out the of the game.

Their coach was smart for setting that up. Trotter was wrongfully thrown out of that game and the Falcons gave eachother high fives for doing their jobs. Smart.

The Eagles have a little different look on their front seven this year. Darren Howard is a hand full, Bunkley and Patterson are very promising young players.

The Eagles are going to be a very tough opponent and they are going to bring the house against our OL and QB until we can prove we can protect. Zone blocking doesn't mean diddly squat when you're trying to account for blitzing linebackers.
You can change that blitz at will mind set with halfback screens I seen it work pretty well last night when the Steelers did it. I'm not saying it will be a cake walk but it can be done. Coach Kubes will see them blitzing like crazy and make the adjustments that is the diffrence between this years team and the team from last year good coaching.

In reality, the Eagles did not have to blitz that much which is odd because this is preseason and there were a lot of young guys in there. That could be a good sign also.

Lets face it that what the Eagles do when healthy and come the reagular season it will pin your ears back and go and thats when we will see how our coach's react. I think they will do well calling the adjustments. It will be a good game to work off win or lose but like I said I see us pulling a shocker and winning a close one.

There's many ways to beat the blitz. Knowing how it's drawn up is one thing. Doing it is another. Until we do it consistently and effectively, expect to see frequent jailbreaks. And I'm not talking about Punk Man Jones.

It's only preseason but the Eagles' first team has not allowed a touchdown yet.

I think if we win it will be on a key turnover and a well timed blitz beating deep ball by david carr

If you are correct, that type of result in the Kubiak era's first game would kickstart our fortunes and a playoff run would be well within our reach. I love the smell of confidence on a Monday morning.

Give 'em a break, they won the NFL championship 46 years ago.

The Eagles are tied with the Vikings for the third most futile NFL franchise (in terms of league championship) behind the Cardinals and Lions.

seriously on this thread.

NFC East should be pretty tough division ,but with parity in the NFL, most divisions are pretty tough(maybe except NFC West)

I really think we can pull off an upset(if it really is called an upset). 1) What scouting report does the Eagles have on us? Denver's would be close, but I expect Kubiak to put his spin on it and change stuff.
2)I honestly believe eventhough we won 2 games last season, we were more talented than what our record showed. Just scheme/coaching/confidence was shot in 2005.

Game should be good,Eagles were banged up last season and I expect them to rebound, but not sure if they are playoff bound due to the NFC East is tough.

One of my best friends are from Philly and I am always making fun of him.

1) Texans and Eagles are tied in the amount of Superbowl rings.

2) Dallas has 5, Redskins have 2, Giants have 2, Eagles have.........oh yea....0.
There is one positive thing I can say about the Eagles. They are not the Cowboys.

I remember that game. Moon could have broken the record but they sat him in the 4th. The anouncers thought he should have been kept in to break it. After all it is an old record.

Norm died many years ago. Chuck is still alive and was at camp this year.
