Vegas has us as 3 pt favorites. Are the Eagles that bad?

20 posts in this topic

Yes I know the Eagles are in a mess right now. But they have more talent, a better HC, one more win than us AND are playing at home but they are 3 pt underdogs in our MNF match up?

Yes. One of the few teams worse than us. They don't find ways to lose like we do. They just lose.

Yes they are.

I'm still not penciling in a 'W' here though. We're pretty bad too.

good lord, this the first time we are favorites this year?

Realistically, I think the Eagles and the Chiefs should give us a 4-12 ending record.

With Vick most likely out, yes we should be favorites to win.

They are really bad, one of the few teams with a worse offensive line than us. Our D-line has been showing up (except for the 4th quarter), so that is a huge advantage for us. Vick has already been declared out, McCoy might be also. Not to mention that their defense since Bowles has taken over for Castillo has given up a passer rating of 120 or greater in each of their 4 games.

That said, it would surprise no one if we found a way to fug this up

If we can't beat a team with Nick Foles as the QB, and LeSean McCoy out, there is absolutely no future for the team as presently constituted.

I'll ask again what I asked elsewhere.

Has everyone forgotten our history against backups?

Not under John Fox. But for all of his faults, Rivera is 2-0 against backup QBs. (Josh Johnson and TJ Yates)

    • With rivera thinking defense would win mentality..they thought Cam would be enough him and Smitty and double trouble...didn't work that way..this is a passing league and you have to adjust..front 7 is nice but if the team is getting ball out quick it negates it.Our offense in the SB was slow and line not good on the right side..After loosing Smity we had no true threat...Benjamin is good but is slow. Ginn and Brown weak and small..they are no smity ..If Steve were here we would have had a 2015 SB. Imagine Smitty in Browns place during SB...the organization took a turn for worst on offense should have gotten a  replacement benji was not it or was not enough.
    • So you answer a question with a question? Have no opinion?  Scared to guess?
    • correct. herbert spencer's concept (falsely attributed to darwin) was used heavily throughout the late 19th century to add a scientific justification for things like child labor and opposing evils such as regulations. some people were meant to be poor! it is a sure sign someone has no empathy and shouldn't be a viable voice in putting together a society that works for everyone because it is inherently anti-social.
