Why do we just accept as truth that the Eagles will be able to pass at will ?

Mcnabb can pass in the pocket better than Vick. True. But he's not exactly Joe Montana here. Nabb has his share of bad passes. He never completed over 59% of his passes until he got TO. As far as talent surrounding the QB's in the passing game. It's not like Mcnabb has that much more talent than Atlanta. (unless TO pulls a Kurt Gibson) Westbrook is the only real threat, and Atlanta has Crumpler.


Everyone just seems to be content with the fact that the Eagles will have thier way passing. The Falcons still have a pass rush , and they have stopped alot higher powered passing offense than the Eagles as recently as last game.


Also, it's going to be windy tomorrow. Which is going to make a mess of accuracy. When has Vick ever depended on Accuracy? He just hurls it 70 MPH. Mcnabb is going to be effected more by this than Vick is.


The Eagles may have an edge in the passing game. But the Edge is not that much bigger. Not big enough for anyone to say they will come out and dominate with it.

Thats Just My Opinion, and I'm usually Right ^_^

Also anyone that says Kearse will stop Vick Dead in his tracks from Running. Kerney and Smith can very well do the same to Mcnabb.

Thats why I think the team with the better Rushing attack is going to come out on Top. Atlanta is #1, and #8 against it.

Some would call Atlanta winning an upset. I almost expect it....

Its all good to me if my teasers of the Falcons +13 and the Steelers +10 can cover!

Man.... what a beautiful day this would be if our Texans were playing.

Regardless of what any of you think, Im believe the Falcons will come out on top and Philly will be sent home for their fourth straight NFC Championship loss. Last week Philly's offense had a lot of breaks, and that was against one of the worst D's in the league.

Falcons on top baby. :coolb: :banana:

Could they not have found someone better than that poor little kid to sing the National Anthem? He tore that up.

Vick still cannot pass well when forced to. Falcons bailed out with the hand to the facemask. Crumpler just lost the last three years of his life on that last brutal hit. Nice pass by Vick btw.


Crumplers weight was his own worst enemy that time.

And Dawkins just shot back up to the best Safety in the league again. Crumpler is a 260 pounder.

The Refs are going to cheat for Vick and the Falcons any way they can. They will call the most horrendous penalties just to keep giving Atlanta chances to score. Way to go Taglibue :loser

OH RIGHT, did you see the no call on the Greg Lewis PUSH OFF that led to a TD>

the refs suck on both sides of the ball

that wasnt a pushoff and the roughing the passer penalty was tacky, but you have to call it whether he meant to do it or not.

i think the refs are doing an adequate job.

This game didn't surprise me...it's pretty much an accepted fact that if Vick is forced to play QB he can't get it done. However I don't think the Eagles D can stop a more well rounded offense like the Patriots/Steelers, whoever they end up playing.

I agree, whether it's Pittsburgh or New England i dont think Philly can win. Neither of their offenses revolve around one player (Vick).

I think that about does it for Vick. He just is not a QB. He is a hybrid qb/rb. I am so happy he left college early so he wouldn't be a Texan.

McNabb is a good QB. He is elusive. He forces the ball less now and runs when he has to. Not to mention the guy can throw a fairly accurate deep ball. The McNabb/Brady matchup should make for a good SB.

As I said three years ago, if Vick did not become a pocket passer, then he will become as effective as Randall Cunningham. Brilliant at moments but heartbreaking just as much.

to me it seemed more a function of Atlanta's zone blocking scheme (same as Texans use) breaking down & shows just how it can affect the QB even one as elusive as Vick. just like the Texans if they continue to use this system the first thing they should address is upgrading the offensive line. :twocents:
