Planning For Next Year

Forget that the 19-14 win was over a 2-9 team, the Eagles needed a victory desperately. It wasn't pretty, but very little has been during this disappointing Eagles season. Soon after the win, with the Giants, Cowboys and Redskins having lost, there were a few misguided souls in the press box claiming that the Eagles are alive in the playoff race.
Three words: Forget about it!
There will be no playoff run, but the Eagles can still finish the down season on an up note. Especially with so many young players who are now contributing.
Add rookies Todd Herremans and Ryan Moats to that list of new contributors. Herremans played in his first regular season NFL game at left tackle and performed well. And Moats, who was activated for only the third time this season, earned his first carries of the season. He gained 24 yards on six carries and forced and recovered a fumble of a kickoff.
The offensive line now has three players - Herremans, Jamaal Jackson and Adrien Clarke, who have a total of five NFL starts.
The Eagles will be the last ones to admit that the final five games are for preparing for next year. Until they are mathematically eliminated, they should feel like they can contend.
Still, the foundation is being set for young players to make big contributions these final five games. And when coach Andy Reid and his staff evaluate players for next year, they will have a much better handle on things.
Of course, they would rather have looked toward next year at a more opportune time - next year. Still, this gives the Eagles one leg up on the future, even though they would much rather be playing for the present.

Get used to it Eagle's fans. Your years of being on top are OVER. And without a superbowl i might add. Way to go Andy! LOL. Oh my god what a joke this city is. LOL. For all of you Eagle's fans ready to jump off a bridge there is a team about an hour away that is primed for another run at a championship....another one i might add....we already have two...start rooting for the Giants...then maybe you'll see what it feels like to be a winner.

to anonymous: don't think the giants are talented enough to make that run. the EAGLES! can squeeze in the P.O.'s with a W over the seahawks & a L between Dal or NYg. the EAGLES will get in! you're probably a Jets fan turned nyg fan and never knew how it feels to be a winner! so stop talking junk and watch the games on your black & white tv, scrub!

Although it will be interesting to see what the younger players can do and what they will be able to contribute, the reality is that the Eagles are looking at some down years in their immediate future. If you take a look at all the holes the Eagles will be left with next year, there is not enough young talent and draft picks availble in 2006 to fill all the voids. They are looking at an aging offensive and defensive line, the replacement of a T.O. type of receiver, replacing Jevon Kearse, filling the needs at linebackers, and adding depth at the receiver and backfield positions. What will make it more difficult for Philadelphia is that the remaining teams in their division are all on there way up will Philly is falling. The draw to bring in free agents has lost it's zeal with the reputation the Eagles mangement has on handling their player personnel and the fact that the Linc is no longer a "new" venue. The fact that the Eqagles remain well under the salary cap even today tells me that there in the business right now of profit taking will the marketability of this team was up, and that I would not expect to see them invest much in the near term. What makes it difficult is that Philly is so hungry for a championship team that Jeffrey Lurie doesn't have to put a "superbowl team" on the field, just one that will resemble a winning team. The seats will still sell out at the Linc and he can still turn a profit, and when there's nothing to be made, he will sell the team and move on. It just seems to me that I am reliving the Leonard Tose years all over again and Andy Reid is the new version of Dick Vermeil. It seems history does have a way of repeating itself.

Hey Blaze, i've been a Gint's fan my whole life. I live and work in Manhattan so relax. I have felt what its like to be a winner twice in my life, in '86 and '90 when my team won the Superbowl. How many times has your team won the bowl? LOL. Yeah that's what i thought. Like i said your going nowhere fast dude. If you think your going to make the playoffs your freakin crazy. The eagles are a joke of a franchise. I would compare them with the Cardinals, Seahawks, and all those other pathetic teams that never won a Superbowl. I mean there are expansion teams that have only been around for 10 years that have done more than the Eagles. The Eagles run is DONE, and without a ring i might add. LOL. OMG how pathetic. LOL. The best years of the franchises history and they still couldnt win a ring. Wow thats sad. By the way Blaze, did you happen to see the game a couple weeks ago? The Eagles suck pal...the Giants destroyed them. But keep your head up Blaze, the bird's are coming off a big win against GB...they're 2-9 aren't they? LOL. One word for Eagles fans out there..PATHETIC!!

Hey Iggle idiot, Eli has had a better year this year than Donovan. Pretty sad considering its his first full year. Fact of the matter McNabbs rating his first year was like 60, Eli's is over 80. Have you even watched McNabb choke every time he gets into a pressure situation at the end of a half or a game? I mean he throws up in the Superbowl? Who does that? Eli has more fourth quarter comebacks and pressure plays in 1 year that McNabbs had his whole career. The EAGLES ARE DONE pal....FINISHED. They aren't even average. They're a POOR team. Have fun replacing all those aging stars that can't cut it anymore (Kearse, Dawkins, Tre Thomas, etc)..Good luck. I know Eagles fans are passionate but be realistic. Know something about the game. Your 0-4 in the division...i mean thats pathetic. We beat the crap out of you and so did everyone else. Im sure your from Philly so you dont see it but the rest of the country thinks Philly is a joke....ask around. Your a small market with moron fans. Your not even in the same class as a team like the Giants. Have a nice season! LOL. The draft is only a few months away. LOL

So like i said, relax. As far as football is concerned, are you really talking smack. I mean really. There is absolutely nothing in the history of your organization to brag about. Nothing. Wow you played in two superbowls, lost them both i might add. I mean that is so pathetic. And you cant even brag about your teams performance this year because they SUCK. Not even .500. I mean they are terrible. Nice move picking up Owens. How'd that work out for you? LOL. Oh yeah and Kearse was a great signing too. How many sacks does he have? LOL. Omg what a joke. Hey pal why dont you start rooting for one of the other teams in your city that hasnt done anything for the last 25 years. LOL. PATHETIC. Philly and Cleveland are the two worst sports cities in the country. At least they have LeBron. LOL

you really are clueless,, and if your bragging about working on wall street eeewwwww!!!! mom should be proud she raised a vein person. Bragging about your job is about as childish as it comes,, i'm an account Executive and i'm comfortable,, i find no reason to brag,, now!
last time i checked the eagles were valued at 800 million dollars not bad for a "small market" team as you call them,and still growing, the giants and there 2 Superbowl Tiltles are valued at 650 million as of the sporting news 2004-05,,, eat thoes Numbers Mr Wall street :) I have no interestin arguing with you,, Good luck to the G-men,, There's a lot of talent on that team,, hey i hope they could represent the NFC east in the superbowl again and hopefully with a win.
it's sad what's goiong on in philly and until they are completly out of the playoffs then i must continue to have hope that they keep winning and with some help make it there,, i know they will not win the superbowl this year,, i'm not a moron,, i'll take a playoff apperance,,
Good Luck,,,

All you Giant fans talk about those copper rings they've obtained in the 20th century, well boys this is the 21st century! You can't get Phil, he's too old, you can't get LT, he's in recovery and Bill is trying to relive those Giant days in Dallas. I'm here to tell you Giant fans, the EAGLES got a little side tracked with T.O. and Giant fans are loving it.
The Birds own the smurfs and you guys are hoping that Philly looses another one against the blues!
So stop dwelling in the past and look to the future, if there's any future left for you......Bums. Further, go get an x-soccer player to kick a field goal for you guys. With a kicker like that, the smurfs will loose a lot of clutch games......scrubs! Wake up, don't rely on Eli to get you to the big one! Because, Freddy he's not ready! Remember, one good hit on that knee and that's the Blues. Ha,ha ha!

McNabb sucks. I dont know why all you Eagles fan's dont see it. he average at best. he was good when he could run but now he cant. his arm is AVERAGE. He's very inaccurate, and needs great wide recievers to make him look good. He wont win a superbowl in his career, thats for sure. And by the way for the guy who said he wants to see Eli win a game that matters, didnt you see him a couple weeks ago? Maybe you werent watching but he beat the crap out of your team. get used to it he's going to be doing it for the next 10 years.

I cant wait for Monday to watch the Eagles get killed again. LOL. What a joke that team is. hey Eagles fans out there.....hows that $12m under the cap doing? Nice job managing the cap. Wasted money is more like it. Way to go Joe B. The Eagles run their franchise too much like a business and as long as they do they aren't going to win any superbowls. Not to mention no one is going to want to play for them. Good luck in this years draft boys, its the next thing you have to look forward to. LOL. Oh how sad :(
LOL. E-A-G-L-E-S OMG how pathetic. Hey mikelos, aren't you the same guy who said about 10 posts ago that the Giants were very talented? And you hope they win and represent the NFC East in the Superbowl? Now your rooting for the Cowboys? How could any genuine Eagles fan EVER root for either the Giants or the Eagles? I would rather the Eagles team plane crashed and burned before i rooted for them in the Superbowl. I was at the embarrassment of a game against Carolina in the NFC champs and loved every minute of it. You probably saw me on TV, i was the only guy laughing as i was walking out of the stadium. I mean three consecutive losses in the NFC game, now that is the definition of pathetic. This team has no clue how to win a championship. Its leader throws up during the Superbowl.....are you kidding me? You have to admit that is freakin funny. How can you say McNabb is a good QB when he has choked so many times (int's and the end of games, fake spikes and throws over the middle that let the clock run out). he cant perform under extreme pressure. Face it.

anonymous, you work on wall st? you're on the this website a lot. how do you get anything done? and, to use bad words, you're a real king solomon for a head case. i'm not here to insult you, it's that you don't respect a team that has come a long way from being at the bottom of the nfc to the top and earned their right to get some respect. think about this, if the eagles would have drafted that weed head ricky williams instead of donny mac, where would the eagles be? right there with the lowly texans. the eagles org. are better than they ever was in times past. so give them some credit where credit is due. you understand credit? don't you wall st? sure you do. the eagles are still the best in the nfc.

I would rather a team From the Nfc east represent the SB then any other Division,,,cowboys, Giants, redskins.. does not matter it has nothing to do with how much i hate the giants,, true they have talent,, but not enough,, you act like there on there way to the super bowl,,, you know they are not! so stop acting like a baby! the eagles are the class of the nfc,, they don't spend money because they don't need to! they resign there players to long term deals and that keeps there cap low,,, why spend millions on a free agt when the player you have is just as good?!? and when the time comes they will spend money,, hence TO,, sure whish that went better,,, but the Guy is a pice of crap!,, you were not at the champion ship game against carolina,, your too much of a chicken shit to show up in Philly in anything other then a eagles jersey.Boy if you work on wall street i'll be sure to keep my money under the bed from now on!
come tuesday Philly 6-6
giants 7-5 and dropping..
and no.. Mcnabb was not throwing up,, anybody who was there could tell you that,, plus did you see any high lights of him doing that?,,,your too ignorant,,so put on you tighty eli whites,, and get ready for yet another heart breaker,, cause your kicker sucks..
hey,,, i'll be looking for your excuse monday after they lose,,ok?
Philly will be back next year,,stronger then ever,, because there QB will be healthy and they have some money for what ever they need,, how are the giants doiong in the cap,, i really don't know,, so good luck sunday,, i'll lookk for your comments monday..

What are you guys smoking? That giants guy is a loser! But the eagles are terrible this yr and for tha blame the management! They should have traded TO early in the season or just shut up and paid him. They are too CHEAP!
As far as Mcnabb is concerned, he is average QB with good running skills!. Accuracy is not his forte. The reason they went to the playoffs between 2001-2003 was because NFC east stunk and the rest of NFC. They got lucky! Andy Reid is no genius and Mcnabb is not Aikman. He had his best yr with TO and with TO gone, and rising Giants( Manning!) He is starting to look his brother, that should spell DOOM for iggles!It may be long 5-10 yrs before the eagles win in the playoffs. Andy Reid and Mcnabb may no longer be Eagles!

Read Rich Hofman's column today.He was pretty much right on.The Midgets and the Cowboys are much better than last year,but they still borderline suck.

Once that Falcon butthole speared McNabb and Trot got tossed,our season was over,we just didn't know it.The rest cascaded from there.
Just not our year,guys.
But someone in that front office
better wake up and smell the burning toast:Philly is a big time city that deserves big time players.Period.Enough of this "culling jewels from a dungheap" crap.We have enough of them.
Get a proven,name brand beast linebacker-if one exists-a Roy WilliamsWR,a Larry Johnson-type back,a Tamba Hali DE and /or a stud DT.Maybe a beatdown safety.Ambitious Wish List.
But that IS the matrix.WE already built that matrix but someone in our front office saw fit to get full of themselves and ignore
obvious needs.
Plug in the missing pieces of the matrix and let's get going next year.

well maybe they could trade J kearse,, the man has been a bust,,, what has he done for Philly??? Nothing! he had one good game against the Migets in the first half,, then as usual dissapeard when they needed to put pressure on manning,,, and he did nothing against the cowboys,, the eagles had that game,, when you can't pressure your done. Mc Nabb is only good when he runs!!!! period! that opens lanes, keeps linebacker at bay,, opens things up in the passing lanes,, what i don't understand is,, when he got hurt against the Falcons,, why did they let him play all thoes games hurt??? why put the organization in that kind of mess if your not healthy,, all the woulda coulda shoulda's go no place,i still believe if mcmahon settles down he's better then mcnabb,, the mans a little nervous, he had a great game against the giants in the second half,, he needs to relax,, and if he does they will make the playoffs,,,

But when you are feeling bad, think of all the money your mgmt saved this year and how well it improved their profit margin. LOL. I really feel sorry for you guys, i do. Im really surprised Eagles fans dont rip their mgmt more. The Phils seem to get killed and rightfully so, but the bird's mgmt was really poor this year. If you look at the eagles roster their offensive and defensive lines were so thin, even going into the year. It doesnt make sense when your supposed to be competing for a championship. But anyway, good luck tonight against the hawk's. It would actually help my Gint's if you win.

well you keep saying they suck,, well they don't even though they did not win the big one,, to win the nfc east 5 years in a row,, and make it to the championship game 4 years in a row,, does not equal a bad team,,, the giants have sucked for the past 5 years,, not just last year with injurys,,, i know they were better then there record,, that's what injurys do,,, do to a salery cap,, it's very hard to have starter depth on a team

Just when we thought there would actually be a week without one piece of news on the Terrell Owens front ... we get sucked right back in.

fOX Sports reported Sunday that the Eagles this week sent T.O. a letter informing him that they are exercising their option to have him return the $1.725 million of signing bonus money that he defaulted by his suspension.

Usually, when a team files to get their money back the union files a grievance on behalf of the player to fight the motion. It is unclear at this point if the union would take this approach but it is common practice. However, Owens' contract clearly states that if he is suspended for "more than one game" for conduct detrimental to the team, the Eagles have the right to get that portion

Hey look, I am a lifetime Eagles fan(35+ years). I grew up there. This is the reason most of us love one team over another. That said, a Giants Fan, or anyother team fan who comes to an Eagles blog to mud toss is imature and the True Eagles fans should just ignor him. The more we respond to him the more he posts. I suggest we simply pretend his posts do not exist and he will go away.

Now on to the real topic. I hate T.O. But, I knew I was going to hate him when we bought him. So, we knew what he was and what we were getting. His reputation certainly preceeded him. T.O. is argualbe the best reciever in the NFL. Mcnab is really only average, becuase without good receivers, a QB is only as good as they guys who he throws to. Teamed up with T.O. Mcnab he could be the Best in the NFL.

The T.O. cut was an emotional decison. Our Coaching staff got caught up in the emotional and ego issues and lost sight of the Prize.

Benching and then releasing T.O. will most certainly go down in NFL history as the biggest Team Managment decisoin mistake ever.

I also think that McNabs injury (You know the one he said he could play throught until TO was cut) is another sign to me that Mcnab does not react well to pressure. He knew without T.O he would have to step up his game and the lions share of the spotlight would be on him. He steped down instead of up and covered his ass.

I am sad to say the Eagles dismantled a potential Superbowl team quite effectively from the inside out.

Forget T.O., this season was more about McNabb being "afraid" to have surgery before the bye week (hello, Donovan, what the F do you think the bye week is for, it's for healing INJURIES!). They could have gone 2-2 with Detmer or McMahon, and been at the same place they were three weeks ago, but with McNabb coming back while they were still in it. now look how could a team allow there QB to play hurt,, him playing hurt is the equalvlant of Mcmhaon or detmer playing,,, what a chicken shit!!! they really have to look at what's there and determine if some players have what it takes to do what right for the team,. again this has nothing to do wo TO it's mcnabb over and over again,, first all the INT's at the wrong times in big games,, now being afraid to have surgery c'mon,, what's going on here,,, TO is the lucky one,, he will be picked up and bring a team a ring,, w/o TO mcnabb does not have that 31td's and 9 int's last year,, it's more like 20-20. all eagle fans should be Furious at mcnabb and his bad decisions,, this was not supposed to happen,,, TO had a great year a Deserved a contract admendment,, but no!!! and while i'm at it,,, Please take the play caling away from Reid... the man is cluless.. i could go on,, i believe i made my point...Go colts

What will be especially satisfying is next season, when the Eagles are HEALTHY and without a CANCER in the locker room.

The Giants may very well win the NFC East. But if anyone thinks they are a strong team, well...you're in for a bumpy ride. The Eagles suck this season. It's true. But try losing all those linemen, your star QB, the best WR in football (at least on the field), an all-pro corner, and now potentially, your top RB - one who is identified by national tv personalities and football experts as one of the most complete weapons in the game...

The Eagles run is not over anonymous Giants Fan. And if you think it is...well then enjpoy this year, 'cause you will be very sad next season.

Its always NEXT year for Eagles fans. I've been hearing that for the last 2 decades. Next year. Next year. Next year. Listen, the eagles are so far from a good team its ridiculous. They are old, they have no depth at either o-line or d-line, no pass rush, no wide receivers, bad olb's, and no run game. Thats a lot to fix in one year. its going to take awhile for them to be competitive again. Just losing TO is huge bc McNabb needs a great receiver to make him look good, and they will never find another receiver as good as TO. So get used to what your seeing bc next year wont be much different. LOL LOL

Man LOL...I really wish I knew you. Cause I'd make a fortune off of you betting on the giants chances for the Supe this season, and their chances next season vs. the Birds.

LOL!!!

For someone who works on Wall Street, you sure have a lot of time to spend on an EAGLES blog!!!

LOL!!!

How's that basement life in Bayonne? Tell your Mom I say hi.

It’s like a root canal,,, ok.

Your living with pain for months now and you finally go to the dentist and endure one more painful day,,,

And then bang it’s all over,,, the nerve is dead and your feeling better,,, but noooo!!! I have to take a fork and screw with the filling to make sure there’s nothing in there,, what the hell are they thinking,, he’s gone,, he earned his money,,,,,,, kind of,,, leave it alone… how does 1.75 million help your organization,,,, what will that make him file bankruptcy or something?,,, it’s such a small amount for the NFL and teams it makes no sense to do,, it’s like jumping out of your Mercedes for a 20$ bill on the road,,, you obviously don’t need it!!!! Just for spite?… doesn’t the fact that you kicked him off the team mean anything,,, is that not good enough,, after all he gave your overrated QB some wonderful #’s last year,,, right?

31-td’s 9int’s even Manning could not do that in terms of TD’s to Int’s ratio



such a soap opera

and yes! this Eagles fan is Pissed off at this organization,,, they are destroying everthing they worked so har to correct over the past ownership years,,, new stadium great mgmt,, wonderful salery cap situation, and what has to be the worst thing they could have done was not nip the TO situation in traning camp!,, i'm afraid the affects of this will last longer then we want. as for the draft the eagles should pressure McNabb and draft a QB,, they will be in great position to get a good pick at one,,, see mcnabb has knowbody to make him try harder,, chunkie soup is not working,,, having detmer and mcmahon is no threat,, i don't believe mcnabb is a good Defensive reader,, he a decent at best QB,, he would do better with a dynamic running game,, which they don't have. i worrie about this team,, and the direction they are going in.. i believe this is it for a long time,,, i don't want the hightlight of the season for the future to be 1 win against the Boys and the giants,, like the past years when we had nothing else to root for,,,this sucks,, and it will be a long time before it changes. oh and Anonymous Giant fan,,
your sister was wonderful last night,,

how bad would that be!!! a huge upset for the giants to go to philly and blow it!!!! wow... hey philly has nothing to lose now,,, throw the play book out and go after manning and shockey,, hurt some people,, play spoiler,, you know put a bounty on the kicker hahahah oh,,, lol. maybe we could throw som batteries and stuff like that,, i will watch this game not in hopes of a win,,, actualy i would prefer they lose out,, i will watch and hope a key player get hurt,, ad see where your team ends up.. go after manning knees,, rip shockeys head off,, stuff like that,, oh yeah!!!! i will watch with joy in hopes of injurys,,, nothing to lose except your position in the draft....
one question! does it bother you that they give the ball to that big guy,, what ever his name is on goal line situations,,, what a slap in the face to Tikki!! the man works is ass off to get there and they gi it to that big goof ball,, that's shit,, they did that in detroit with barry sanders...
just wondering

Actually it does bother me a little bit. Tiki is having a really great year. I dont really get it, especially giving it to him two or three times in a row. They need to use him as a decoy sometimes too. Line him and Tiki up together and run a toss or spread out the field. Its too predictable the way they ALWAYS give it to him. I would also like to see him run it more throughout the game though. I know he ran over a lot of people in preseason and practice. I think he's going to be pretty good.

Next year? The pain to come yet this year will make next year look like a party. Prediction of a 5-11 year at best is well deserved by the gold standard. Hopefully, AR can manage a couple more game or season ending injuries so he can find a couple of more unemployed Mormons as standins in the NFL. Call Chickie & Pete's for employment references.

when they played the cowboys last week they gave it to that big guy,, what ever his name is and i said,,, your telling me tikki could not run it in from there? after the replay the hole was big enough for tikki,, it's a shame he deservs thoes TD's,, i'm sure there is bonus money that will not get reached if thay keep giving it to the other guy,, maybe that's why they are doing that?,,
oh well Go April draft,,, Brady Quinn is on my dream list,, maybe he could challange Mcnabb

Well boys its going to be along day for all of you on Sunday. I know the feeling. I felt it last year when the Giants had half of their d on the IR. Some years just seem to go awful. Especially when your losing. The divisions going to be a lot tougher for anyone to win over the next few years. I love the direction the Giants are going in....they are very young. I think if they get a couple of free agents or draft picks on d they're going to be awfully tough. Ok well good luck on Sunday.

i don't think it will be that long,, i smell an upset,, mabey by 3 ppoints,, it will be better then monday's performance,,, they will show up,, it will be a close one,, i think or believe they will throw every thing at manning at this point,, he has struggled as of late so my guess there will be many blitzes... go draft!

 
At 3:30 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Dude did you see the game three days ago? The Eagles are so pathetic. You think they're going to win? You must be joking. They wont score an offensive touchdown, i promise you that much. The Eagles defense will be on the field the whole game and that will catch up to them in the second half. i predict 23-6 Giants. How can the Eagles possibly score? No RB, no WR, no QB.....bad comination. You better hope they have three touchdowns between the d and the special teams. Thats what its going to take. Give up, its over.

well they did pretty good at Giants stadium with nothing,, i'll go with home field and knowing that they played the worst game in the past 6 years hanging over there head,, if anything maybe just maybe the D will step up,,, honestly it's a reach,, but c'mon,, gotta go with my Homies!!!
Go draft!!!

 
At 5:28 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

LOL. Thats asking a lot pal. They need 2 better OLB's, a better backup QB, a bigger RB, a bigger CB, a really good DE, and what else? Are there any positions left? Listen when your looking for all that stuff your in deep trouble. The truth is the eagles are in for a long ride to get that team back to playoff level. the injuries killed them this year for sure but they havent drafted for crap and lost a lot of players over the past three years. They are aging very fast (Dawkins, Kearse, etc.) and aren't nearly as effective as they used to be. I appreciate your optimism but be realistic. How many players do you expect them to get this offseason? They'll be lucky to get a legitimate receiver let alone another DE or LB. They learned their lesson paying high prices for other teams dog meat (Owens and Kearse) and aren't going to go after any high priced FA's. I think the eagles have drafted terribly over the past few years. I mean all those draft picks who have they got? They have a lot of young inexperienced players with much work ahead. Matt McCoy? Seriously. Has he even been on the field this year? LOL. The eagles could have done really well with all those draft picks they had this past year. They could have traded and got one or two legitimate young stars but opted to stay and got relatively nothing. I dont think AR knows anything about drafting. Tell me one player they drafted that is decent after ? left town.(I cant remember his name but he was the personnel guy with the birds and was really well percieved around the league). Sorry fans, buckle up its going to be a bumpy ride.

 
At 7:59 AM, Anonymous mikelos said...

it's already a bumpy ride,
i dont think it will be that hard to fix this,, like i said,, another pass rusher,, which there will be plenty, in the draft and FA, a bigger back,, WB is the main guy,, finding a big back is not that hard, even if you convert someone to play that position,, there db's are small but most of them were in the probwl last year, injurys will heal, and a wide out there are a few that will be FA's this year god knows Philly has enough money,, so it's a one year bump,, that's all just like the Pat's, it will be fixed and they will be back,, i'm not sure if you know this but there o line although young,, will be the biggest in the Nfl next year,, they showed some signs of overwelming people at the line,,, i garuntee you moats will rush for 90+ yards sunday, if i'm wrong i will go back on this blog and say the midgets are great,, ok? they might not win,, but they will run the football and they will do it well,, you should not be to cocky about this game,, the G-men need to win this,, and we all know what happens when the G-men need to win a game,,, so how bout you wait til it's over before you start celebrating,, remember 1 injury is all it takes,,,,just 1 and your team if pretty much finished for the year,,i forgot,, who your back up QB is? or how much depth you have on a suspect O lline that gave up 5 sacks to the depleted eagles D, dude that team is a few pices short,,, nothing FA can't fix, not sure of there cap room.. but if they manage well i'm sure they will do fine,
Go Draft,,, oh yeah,,, Go giants,, i want Philly to lose out,,, there is a stud DE in college i believe at Penn st Tamba Hali he is a monster rusher,, should be around at 9 or so,,, that's finr with me,,
or Mathias Kiwanuka at BC,, another who will be around in the top 15. no worries

What about DT? LB? You have nothing at DT and LB. No punter, no kick returner, and your WR corp is awful. You need alot to compete again next season. Its not looking good for you. Not to mention the eagles draft like crap. As far as the Giants line is concerned they have two really good tackles and three good guards that will all be back next year so im not really sure what you mean there. And as far as saying the Giants struggle in games they need to win, did you watch the game last week? That was a must win and they won. So again, dream on if you think the Beagles can win. NO CHANCE!

 
At 1:39 PM, Anonymous mikelos said...

alright,, so tell me if your o line is so good why did they give up 5 sacks to what you call a bad D,, mike patterson will be an excellent DT Trent cole,, who sacked your QB 3 times is also a rookie who will soon explode next year,, he's too fast for that not so good line,, soon enough J Kearse will stop being doubled teamed like he is eveyweek,, he's not what i thought they were getting but that mainley due to a double team,, reggie brown will be a fine receiver, Todd Pinkston will be back to strech the d,,, J Trotter is the best,, and D JOnes is a joke,, of course he's a former giant,, they will fix that, they could with there cap situaton, and a good position in the draft fix all that ales them this off season,, the D needs very little help,, you don't know anything about the eagles, so stop acting as if you know what they need,, the cancer is gone,, the overrated Qb will be back,, WB will be back, there O line is huge, and getting better,, no worries,, i would like an upset although i would prefer a loss,, for draft reasons,, so Good luck giants fan,, sure hope for your sake knowbody gets hurt,, sadly they need to win this game,, oohh could you imagen Eli breaking an ankle... oh man what a mess that would be,, and he's not even that good,, hey maybe they could use Tikki to throw the ball,, hell thy sit him down in Goal line situations,,, better hope they escape healthy,, nothing worse the getting hurt against a team that is out of it!

Thats pathetic that your teams role this season is nothing more than a spoiler. What a JOKE from a team that was supposed to be far and away the team to beat in the conference. Nice game last week too. Way to show up. Listen think what you want but the Eagles have no shot if they plan to play the WR's they have now next year. Neither Brown nor Lewis are legitimate 1's or anything close to that. And you talk like the eagles are going to run next year. Are you stupid? Have you watched the Eagles at all. They run like crap. Look at their stats. They cant run to save their life. If you think thats going to change next year your crazy. Reid doesnt run and thats that. Im not saying the Eagles are going to be this completely pathetic again next year, but please tell me how many teams go from missing the playoffs, losing their best offensive weapon, to winning the Super bowl? It doesnt happen. Comparing the Eagles situation to the Pat's is like comparing apples to oranges. Yes the Pat's have struggled more this year due to injuries and free agency, but they are in first place and are going to the playoffs. The Eagles are in LAST place and are going home for the holidays. So smarten up birdie boy, the Eagles are TOAST. Go root for injuries, thats all you have left to do. Hope you have fun watching other teams in the playoffs. Get used to it bc your not going anywhere next year either.

hey they are done,, i admit that,, injurys man,,, injurys! what else do ihave to look forward to. look at all the injurys, and i'm not calling the eagles the pat's it's simmilar when the pats won the Sb and then got injurys the following year, went like 7-9 all because of injurys they will get a WR via FA, that's probably there best bet, as for running the ball,,, they can,, just choose not to! because with TO there was no need to they were built to pass, and they did a good job hell they swept the NFC east last year right? so when they choose to they could, and i doun't understan why you don't understand injurys,, you should the giants had there share,, look at shockey he was hurt and that killed them last year,, 7 STARTERS ARE GONE FOR THE YEAR!!! 7! name me one team in the NFL that could handle 7 starters gone, 5 to injury, one was placed on ir before the season started do to a gunshot to the gut 1 was kicked off the team,, hell the best WR in the game,,now the best WR/RB in football in WB McNabb and his not so running self anymore,, that really hurt the team when he decided to stop doing what made him such a powerful threat! even Stinkston,, although not very tough, he was one of the fastest in the NFL,, he really streached the field/. so look at all the injurys they had,, they will be right back in it next year,, the NFC is still not that good,, some good D in the NFC no real powerful offences to match the colts in the SB,,
so say what you want,, who the hell are we to say who is good and who is goiung to win it all, and yes,, when your team is 5-7 on there way to 5-8 you play the role of spoiler,, remeber Herman EDwards speech!!! " YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME"
good luck G-man,, i'm done with this site,, maybe we run into each other at Giants stadium next year,, you shouldn't be too hard to find your the one locked in the port a john!!! hahahah or sorry LOL,,LOL,,LOL,, no really good luck,, i would like to see the NFC represent in the SB,,, oh and please will Coughlin please give it to Tikki on the goal line,, Jacobson does not deserve his TD's,, the man should earn them,, i like Tikki,, He's without a doubt the best pure running back in the Nfl right now,,,
take care man...

Manning is coming off his worst performance, with completions on 12 of 31 passes for 152 yards and two interceptions. And for the first time all season, he did not throw a touchdown pass.

Six of Manning's 12 interceptions have come either in the end zone or inside the opponents' 10-yard line
The Giants have entered the red zone a league-high 48 times this season. They have come away with 24 TDs and 15 FGs. They also have surrendered the ball more than any other team inside the 20. They have 6 turnovers (4 INTs and 2 lost fumbles
New York is 2-3 on the road in 2005, while Philadelphia is 4-2 at Lincoln Financial Field.
