Re: NFL Playoffs

Anyone else happy that it was Alshon's horsefeathers up that ended the Eagles season? Not so much Alshon, just glad the Eagles are done, they needed smoke and mirrors to make the playoffs, somehow managed to beat the Bears, a team that was clearly better than the Eagles, on the road. If they manage...

Re: NFL Playoffs

What goes around comes around, heart breaking fashion way to lose Eagles. I've the feeling Philadelphia caught lightning in a bottle with Foles as a result, some team is going to give him an outrageous sum of money. Only to be gravely disappointed.

Re: Politics & Current Events

Is it not too far fetched to think that should Trump get the wall funding, he's found a way to funnel some of the money into his holdings?

Absolutely not. Definitely not, although conceding defeat when they are ahead is very much a typical Democratic response. And there is no way the Republicans wouldn't twist logic to still influence idiots. "See! A Latino snatched a purse in San Antonio. If the Dems cared about border security ...

Re: Politics & Current Events

Trump says he’s cutting off FEMA money for California forest fires, presumably because our governor criticized him last night. Of course, in typical Trump fashion, he initially spelled it “Forrest” because he doesn’t know how to spell and likes to capitalize words randomly. Must be an example of ba...

Re: Round 1: Eagles at Bears Sunday 3:40 on NBC

Never mind what happened happened Sunday, they can't bring Parkey back. It's not like he was great all year or even good and they don't want to make him a scapegoat, he was pretty consistently bad when it mattered most. As for Sunday, the defense shouldn't let the game come down to a field goal but...

Re: Round 1: Eagles at Bears Sunday 3:40 on NBC

Bears have these fart-knockers next year at Philadelphia, just like 1985-86 with the Niners, they're going to Philadelphia and kick the Eagles' asses. Parkey for fun,will hit a upright or two, won't matter as the Bears win by double digits.

It's bad enough the Bears lost but, what's more annoying is listening to another round of Eagles gypsy magic [expletive]. Believe the Saints are going to be a resounding end to that nonsense.

Re: Chicago Bears offseason

We may see the D take a slight step back next season, some roster attrition may occur and other factors, etc. however, I strongly believe it'll be more than compensated by the O. The O is going to take a big step forward, Mitch is going to bust out, perhaps, not at the level of Mahomes, but, he'll b...

Re: Round 1: Eagles at Bears Sunday 3:40 on NBC

Wished they were down by 4 instead of having to count on their unreliable kicker, the throw away on 3rd down to stop the clock, Miller was open. I'd say there was excellent chance they score a TD on the last drive, you got to think the Eagles felt pretty good about taking their chances with Parkey.

Re: Round 1: Eagles at Bears Sunday 3:40 on NBC

If you don’t want your kicker iced, you can always snap it before the defense expects you to You could, but I'm guessing timing is pretty important on field goals. Trying to dupe the defense by snapping early seems like a good way to decrease your chances of making the field goal. With someone as t...

I understand most of the criticisms being shared here. The play calling in the first half. The defense not shutting down Philly on that last drive. Mitch being Mitch (average QB, which I always expected but still...). I just can't shake Parkey. He did that to us all year and I wanted to give him cr...

Foles is the reigning Superbowl MVP in his prime. Two can play this dumbass game. He’s a nothing QB doing the bare minimum to win. His team caught his floaters enough to beat the bears because the bears qb did nothing all game. "QB has to play good to win" - Mitch outplayed Foles "We...

Re: Round 1: Eagles at Bears Sunday 3:40 on NBC

I wouldn’t say the offense did everything it should have. It basically didn’t move the ball until the 4th quarter - and Mitch was definitely up and down and made some great down field passes late. If he was on target early, they have the game in hand without resorting to a kick late. It is what it ...

The offense didn't have huge plays? The offense had to move the ball and score. They did not. Special teams was fine, sans Parkey. Defense was fine. Offense was not here.

That’s your takeaway from the game?? No, my takeaway is parkey is a cartoon character. But we’ll also spend 10 years Flaccoing our way through the Trubisky years. Hey, Flacco won a super bowl. I’ll take it. Mitch was pretty good today, wouldn't blame him, besides Parkey, if someone must be blamed. ...

Re: Round 1: Eagles at Bears Sunday 3:40 on NBC

Not too disappointed, yes, almost every pro-kicker would have made the FG but, was not expecting this season. They've got a good chance to dominate the North again, Mitch is going to improve, the arrow is certainly up.
