  1. I wasn't terribly impressed after the 1st half by GB. The Eagles defense was horrible, couldn't stop them on third down. GB defense is good, but the Eagles ran the ball only 13 times with a RB, and Vick didn't look anywhere near 100% running. GB still couldn't run the clock out in the 4th and had a good shot at giving that one away.
  2. Sorry if that was confusing, mvick. I was being facetious. And that wasnt an excuse. We got our a$$es beat.
  3. For years I watched receivers cross the Falcons secondary unimpeded. Other teams had hitters- Lott, Tatum, Dawkins- the entire Eagles secondary for a couple years. They LIT UP receivers. We finally get a guy who makes one hit... and they change the rules. Very suspicious. Might as well rebuild Atlanta-Fulton county.
  4. The game and players have changed in all aspects from when I started watching, over 30 years ago. The players are bigger, faster, stronger and train all year, the schemes are more complicated, and yeah the players are stars and celebrities. The equipment is different- protects the hitter more than ever- do you think guys in leather helmets lead with their heads? They have to do something or these guys are going to continue to be brain damaged or worse. I dont want to watch guys get carted off the field every week.
  5. All I got to say is Childress better pick him up at the airport, or he's gonna be pissed.
  6. Congratulations to the Aints - they will always be that to me! Their fans will be total a-holes from now on, but what ya gonna do? Things change quickly in the NFL, free agency, draft, injuries. They'll be tough, but they're not invincible, we played them pretty good twice this year. The D is still our biggest concern. So begins the worst part of the year...
  7. Watching the Browns v. Ravens last night, the Browns reminded me of the Falcons of old. Stupid plays, stupid coaching, ineptness all around. Made me so appreciate the current team.
  8. The answer is the Commerce Clause. Good luck!
  9. I am a lawyer, and you law students are causing me distress reminding me about law school. PI and WC. If you have a question about how to avoid getting taxed on money you have raised through an existing business entity, without setting up a proper non-profit, not sure i can help, but I'll try.
  10. That Favre guy is pretty good. We should've kept him.
  11. I love how opposing teams come with the same line every week - our team played terrible, that's why Falcons won or almost won. Uh, maybe the Falcons have something to do with your team playing horrible. Loved seeing Brees getting jacked a couple times and a strip with a minute left. Love the fight in this team. We are missing a few pieces but may still make the playoffs this year.
  12. Dude mocked the Dirty Bird. Erase his name from the SB roster. FU, Brooking.
  13. Yep. I was always a Brooking fan, at GT and Atl. But today, I was so pissed, my team wasnt knocking his azz into next week. His back slapping **** pissed me off, when he was nowhere near the play. Have some class man.
  14. Post award for most incongruous use of caps. I mean, caps ARE supposed TO draw attention to something important, right? Besides THAT, his points are valid-assume you can shut down THE run, done. Cover Roddy. NO problem. Cover Gonzo. Easy. Cover everybody else. Done. He IS right, might as well not show up ON sunday.
  15. My only interest in Vick now is vague curiousity to see how he comes back from such a layoff. But, I'm glad he went to the eagles, and hope he does well enough to screw up their chemisty. TheTalon RE: ETN Game thread Reply 8/28/2009 12:09 AM So McNabb was not happy with the QB shuffle that he lobbied for in the first place? This makes a lot of sense. wes48 RE: ETN Game thread Reply 8/28/2009 3:54 AM That implies that McNabb really was on board with this in the first place. I've never been certain his supposed invlovement wasn't some kind of PR job. I mean, why would he want Vick on the
  16. sometimes I regret coming on this board. FROm Peter King: Detroit Lions Stats of the Week In Detroit, 53 percent of the people who really count did not go 0-16. As of Friday morning, 42 of the 81 players in Lions' training camp were new to the team in 2009. Eleven of the 19 coaches were not with the team in 2008. So 53 of the 100 players and coaches just give you a blank stare when you say, "Does this team have a hangover from going 0-16?'' Because they weren't around for it. ******* Lions record in their last five preseason games: 5-0. Lions record in their last 17 regular-season games: 0-1
  17. STFU, its preseason, and the NFL. Any given Sunday.
  18. they dont seem too happy about it. http://www.700level.com/fansview/nosebleeds/13042/1.aspx
  19. tampa reloading- haha, yeah reloading new HC, coordinators an qb's , good luck with that- I hope you guys trade up for Stafford, he's no Matt Ryan. On the plus side, Tenn will have a good signing class, see ya Monte!
  20. is Grady playing this week? mmmm fresh biscuits!
  21. Just so you know, there are some knowledgeable iggles fans on this board: 700 level they are not afraid of some friendly banter either. looks like they want Reid fired! The Eagles, at 3-3, are remarkably right back in the NFC race. On paper yes... Possible yes.... Gonna happen.... NO.
