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

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)

I think we loose this game.

Philly Defense is going to come up big for them. Our offense isn't going to find the rhythm to move the chain. Desean and Maclin will have big games

The iggles are worse than "that bad"

That said. We are capable of making the tuesday headlines in Philly read "not dead yet" or "fighting for Andy?" We are pretty good at making average to pathetic teams look pretty good.
