Predictions For Week 1?


Recommended Posts

Getting ahead of myself and not sure if it's been posted, but do you guys think we win or lose this game? And why?

a friend of mine showed me an article from an sb nation site for eagles fans, similar to our falcoholic. And it discussed why the eagles will begin their season 7-0.

the writer seemed pretty knowledgable of us, but gave the eagles defense a bit too much credit IMO. Their D wasn't necessarily lights out, we'll be at home, and Matt have carried us with far less talent than what was brought in this off-season.

either way, I think it will be a good game, but we take the opportunity to put the rest of the league on notice. We get the W 27-24.

Way way way too early.

But given that it's way way way too early....I think it's a tough game. The Eagles rush the passer well and will possibly run the ball well. They invested some $$ to fortify their secondary as well.

Then again.......Sam Bradford on the road.

IDK....seems like a 50/50 at this point. Maybe even a 40/60.

This is one of those games that you really just shouldn't bet on. Brand new head coach but with the better quarterback vs established head coach with bad quarterback. My guess is Eagles will be like 4.5 point favorites. I could see it going either way. One thing is for sure, our home opener with Dan Quinn will be roaring

The age of bad mike smith calls is hopefully over.

31-21

Shanny stays on the gas when we are ahead and Quinn's defense surprises early but Bradford catches fire toward the end of the game. Our middle of the pack defense does well most home games and Matts new fire makes him unstoppable at home like he used to be. I'm mostly worried about special teams of the Eagles.

Chip kelly has pulled so many WTF moves this offseason... I honestly can say I have no idea what their team will look like. I'm not expecting good things but if everything he's done somehow pulls together they could be a very good team. QB will be a problem for sure though.

So no clue. Eagles are a huge question mark, and will be until a number of games into the season most likely.

New scheme's on offense and defense. I don't see us stopping the Eagles from scoring. We will more then likely have to depend on offense to win this game and I don't trust the OLine to hold up long enough for Matt to scan the field.

You don't see us stopping Sam Bradford from scoring? Man you really don't think this season will go well...

The Eagles are a team that has undergone some major roster changes, much like we have. I don't see the Bradford-led Eagles coming to Atlanta and beating Quinn in his first game as Falcon HC. The game may start out tight, but at some point, our offense will start to gain some traction and begin scoring points. We'll have the lead and our revamped defense will protect it. Falcons win 27-20.

I can understand your apprehension with the new players, coaches and scheme but you really think that the Eagles will score on every possession? Edited by FentayeJones
