  1. Well, unless this team finds an identity and builds around that, all of these hires just feels like we are grasping at straws. None of it feels like a calculated attempt to approach next season with a game plan that will help our young players succeed. But of course you all have been saying that. The only comfort I can offer is that, and I cannot explain why, whenever our up and coming season looks bleak, we always come out strong and go far. Keep em crossed for 8 months folks.
  2. Playoffs

    Dollars to donuts NE loses next week and the winner of the NFCCG gets their 1st ring.
  3. Playoffs

    It does irk me some that many of our FA loses go onto championship games or SB winners: D. Ware B. Church J. Ratliff M. Bennet Just to name a few.
  4. Not for long. I posted a thread months ago about JJ being the common denominator when it comes to why we are a medicore team. Anyone care to dispute that now? I will say this, in spits of losing Elliott, T.,Smith, Lee and a host of other players for some time this year, we did come just 1 game shy of the playoffs. We weren't playing competitive ball at the end of the season, so,we scared nobody. But we can't be that terrible of we finished 9 and 7. I just don't think we have the mental make up or leadership to,compete at,the next level.
  5. Well, try to look at the bright side. Only two years ago the Iggles had: No QB, no picks, no coach, all their star players cut, no GM, they fired Roseman, and looked to be decades away from recovering. Today, they are hosting the NFC, championship game...with their back up QB. Life is full of surprises.
  6. Congrats on your win. Good luck next week.
  7. A shot a redemtion? He couldn't get a ring playing, perhaps coaching? I don't know. I just hear him on TV and think, what a waste of knowledge. He spent all that time sacrificing his body and never got his ring. Earn it through coaching.
  8. After all the money he has earned with this organization, I don't think money is an issue

    That's awesome. My girlfriend and I lost our beagle of 13 years last October 2016. 2 months later we rescued another beagle from Penny Angels Beagle Rescue. She was 1 1/2 years old. Crazy as all he!! but we love her. The point is, rescue is a great way to go. There are so many dogs and cats out there that need a home. Kuddos to you and good luck with the dog!

    Question, if he DOES decide he wants to come back the NFL, can anyone sign him or do we still own his rights? And if so, can we use them for trade value?

    A friend of mine had one when I was young. Big dog, leaves a big mess. But lovable and even tempered.
  12. One name that has surprised me as NOT being mentioned as of yet, Tony Romo. Now hear me out. I know he is in the booth now and quickly rising as one of the best analysts. But do you hear how he dissects plays before they even happen? He is right nearly all the time! His knowledge of the current NFL offenses and defenses and how to exploit them is astounding. I know its not going to happen, and we just hired K. Moore as the QB coach. But I think that would have been a PERFECT place for Romo to start IF he wanted to get into coaching. Maybe its just because I am a teacher, but his vast knowledge of NFL playbooks could be better used to educate up and coming players rather than commentate on them. AND, if his relationship with JJ and the franchise is as strong as it is advertised, I believe this would make a great addition.

    Interesting read, although I already knew this living in Philly all my life. But nice to know I'm not the only one that sees it.
