Default "Texan fan checking" ---Eagles response

Hey guys,

So I went ahead and ventured into the enemy territory, to give a little hello to the Eagles and see what they thought about the first game. Pretty bleak, let me tell you.

While everyone on their agrees the Texans could be the real deal in a year or two, most are completeley writing us off as the moment. Lines like,

"Put it this way, if we lose to the Texans week 1 we are basically done. It wont happen."

But don't let that classless fan fool you, they actually some very insightful fans who remember how good Houston is on opening day, and how poorly Phillly traditionally plays on opening day. And remember, we were 2-14 last year giving up 68 sacks. They have every reason to be confident.

The biggest "gamebreaker" they claim is their "massive" DL versus our newly formulated OL. I agree this could potentially be a problem.

Heres the link if you're curious: http://boards.philadelphiaeagles.com...owtopic=370435

I don't mind the Eagles. Mostly because I hate the cowboys, but who is asking?

here is the thing.. and this is a fairly "simple" viewpoint..

but anyway. The Eagles have a great Dline for getting pressure on the QB, but I dont think they will be able to handle our running game. And if they cant handle our running game, they are gonna have to quit going for the sack, and start going for the run stuff. And if they do that, we are gonna chew em up on offense (imo).

Last year against Denver, Philly lost 49 to 21. Mike Anderson rushed for 126 yards and Tatum Bell rushed for 107.

McNabb got 283 yards and 3 TDs in that game.. but thier defense could not contain that running attack. Incidentally..plummer got 4 passing TDs.


On Defense, I dont see the Philly offense as a huge threat. They lack weapons on offense. Im not saying that we will own thier offense... just that I dont see them coming out and running up the score on us.

Philly sucks, they were crap last year. I like Bunkly there DT a great prospect, and I think Trotter ( SFA GRADUATE Hooks H.S. here in Texas) is a class act and probably one of my all time favorite NFL linebackers, a true Texas spirit and good hearted guy. The truth is, every team on our sched. has a W marked down for when they play the Texans game. When we open up that fresh can of GK-WhoopA## on Philly week one, every one around the NFL will be saying "WTF"!!! Dang, nothing like hearing some lame duck Philly Fan to get the blood flowing.

You don't want to get into it with Eagle fan. I used to live up there and they never think they are going to lose in week one, especially against a perceived weaker team. They will never give you an unbiased thought on the game. However, if they lose to the Texans like mentioned above they will be slitting their wrists and thinking they're going 0-16. Those fans are actually a bit humorous because there is never any in between with them, either the Eagles totally svck or they are Super Bowl bound. They are currently in their Super Bowl bound mode.

Personally I don't think they are going to be that good this season. They may beat the Texans (though I wouldn't be shocked at an upset due to overconfidence), however I think they will finish dead last in the NFC East. All 3 of the other teams look better right now.

BTW, treat yourself to listening to 610 WIP (Philly's Sports Station) the week leading up to the game. Listen how all the fans will be looking past the Texans and thinking this is a give me game, then if the Texans win, listen the Monday after the game. They will be calling for everyone to be fired and benched, quite entertaining. You can listen to that station and others like Houston 610 which I can listen to here in Austin on www.radiomat.com

Yes, at least we're more realistic about our chances. I think that Kubs will make the proper adjustments during the game regarding their DT vs our OT. Let just make sure we are able to run and pass. I prefer the balanced game. Our WR/TE should do better. I'm sure that Lewis and Moulds want to do better this next game.

Maybe Mario will get some sacks too!

The only thing that bothers me about that particular game is our ability to pick up the blitzes if there D-line is as good as they are claiming.

NO, when we get past Philly, they'll still write the Texans off.... The Philly Slow start........ the lucky Texans...... Philly looking past the game blah, blah, blah.

When we whup up on the Colts.......they'll say it's going to take some time adjust to the loss of a player like the Edge....... Dungy's son is still on their mind, Peyton/Tony control issues.....

Then when we rip the skins a new one. They are going to say "WTF"

Yeah, they are unique. Eagles fan and Raiders fan are the only NFL fans who can somehow throw a bottle through a radio and hit people with it.

Amazing trick, if you ask me.

Here's another one that they pull: They mail an ice pick to a fellow fan in another NFL city, and the fellow fan goes and stabs it into your tire if your car has an opposing NFL team bumper sticker on it.

And my favorite: Decapitation of small mammals, sending you the head with a note stuffed in its mouth, telling you that "You're going to get the $#@%! kicked out of you on Sunday!"

Great tip on radiomat. I'll use that page. Another free and easy way to listen to 610 and other stations nationwide is to use Yahoo! Widgets. I have a 610 Widget on my desktop and just doubleclick it to start the stream anytime. There are hundreds of widgets for stuff like that at http://widgets.yahoo.com and I've never had a problem with any of them.

Anyway, I second the comments on Philly fans. I respect them, in general, more than Cowboy fans because they know their football, but they're more likely to burn down their city than Cowboy fans. (Mainly because Cowboy fans don't like to get dirty...the required spongebath afterward disrupts their pedicure schedule.) And of course it's hard to talk smack to Team Chunky, considering they've been a lot better than Houston over the Texans' short existence.

I'm reminded, though, of how I reacted to a seriously annoying Chargers fan who came into this Bull Pen and talked smack to us about the "Bolts," which at the time had been written off as the worst team in football. I ridiculed the guy. They promptly rolled into Reliant Stadium and right over the Texans, and their franchise's rebirth began at that moment. And that Charger fan didn't shut up for weeks...he finally became the only person I've ever put on my ignore list here.

So to Eagle fan, I'd say be careful about writing off those lowly cellar-dwelling teams from the previous season. Dolphins fans learned that lesson from this team. Cowboys fans learned that lesson from this team. I do hope that school's back in session on opening night!

EDIT: lol@Jabar reference, texflex. "Jabbie's got a gun" will never be a hit song in Texas.
