Let's try this "Win and in" again. Eagles Pregame 2.0
 
Washington comes in with the #4 Ranked Defense in the league.

#30th ranked Offense

Philly comes in with both the 22nd ranked offense and 22nd ranked defense.

Week 1 seems like years ago, Haskins was the starter and our defense wrecked the Eagles OL and then starter Carson Wentz.

Now we are in another win and in scenario, this time led by either Alex Smith or Taylor Heineke on SNF of all slots.

I think Hurts will make some plays with his legs and the Eagles will not lay down but I feel the defense will create a couple TO's and that will be the difference.

WFT wins the division in Primetime and hosts the Tampa Bay Bucs on Wildcard weekend.

WASHINGTON FT - 24
EAGLES - 20

With nothing to play for it's hard to imagine the Eagles putting up a serious fight for 60 minutes.

WFT 23

Usually in week 17 that is the case but I can never say that against us lol.

Another stat

Skins have scored 315 Points this season and allowed 315. That is nuts

Philly has scored just 320 points and allowed 398

I disagree with the nothing to play comment.

Players are professional and would love nothing more than knocking out a rival out of the playoffs. The question is, what is their state of mind after being eliminated last week.

Generally speaking a team that has been eliminated just isn't going to put up the same fight vs a team playing for something. It's just human nature.

Will they play hard? Sure, most likely they will. Can they win? Of course. That said I like our chances just a little bit better considering they are out of the race.

Us verse QBs that can really use their legs = nightmares for me.

They need to play very disciplined on defense. No more 40 yard runs.

Feels so much like week 17 2016. Giants already clinched their spot in playoffs with nothing to play for. We win, were in. We played like shit right from the get go.

slow start + lucky bounce or 2 eagles way = panthers game all over again

This offense cant be relied on to come back from a double digit deficit. Not sure it is fair to ask the D to throw another 2nd half shut out.

Eagles are favored to win -1.5 line

Re: Let's try this "Win and in" again. Eagles Pregame 2.0
 
Alot of it will come down to how we start. IF (I know it's a huge IF) we get out to a 10 point lead and the defense can start pounding I think the Eagles players will just be ready to leave the field. BUT if(small if) we let them start out with a lead and give them a reason to play then we could be watching Dallas/NYG the following week.

Call me crazy, but I think the team gets rejuvenated behind either AS or The Beer Man, and we get our very first score on an opening drive and never look back.

I see the line as us favored by 1.5. I mean we don't know who our qb will be so I wouldn't be surprised to see the Eagles favored.

Re: Let's try this "Win and in" again. Eagles Pregame 2.0
 
I can't make a prediction not knowing who will be at QB. One thing we can probably count on is the defense will give the team a chance. If Alex plays and he's 100%, it should be a W. If Heinicke starts, I don't know what to expect. I've only seen him for 9 minutes against a middle of the pack prevent defense. Hopefully he doesn't turn the ball over, and they are able to get a running game going.

I want to see someone else returning punts too. The S Sims Jr experiment has to be over, right? Let Danny Johnson give it a go.

I do not expect the Eagles to pack it in, to begin with, at halftime, or at all...

If Heinicke is named the starter, I'm definitely rolling with Heinekens and Philly Cheesesteaks on Sunday night.

Hard to tell if we're gonna get the mediocre "can this game be over already so we can start the offseason" Eagles or if we're gonna get the "let's knock these fuckers out of the playoffs" Eagles.

Either way I'm expecting a good fight. If we prepare like they aren't a threat we will lose.

Re: Let's try this "Win and in" again. Eagles Pregame 2.0
 
Not to look ahead, but I'm looking ahead...

If the WFT can beat the Eagles, they'll likely get the Bucs for a round 1 matchup.

They could get the Rams, if the Rams beat the Cardinals [B][U]AND [/U][/B]the Falcons beat the Bucs.

Honestly, I'd rather face the Rams in round 1.

We are depending on a 37 year old with one leg that doesn't throw the ball past 5 yards to help win the division. I think Hurts will make some plays cause we have struggled w/ mobile QB's. It's gonna be close.

No surprise. Nobody wants their opponent / division rival celebrating and putting on hats & t-shirts on their turf. If they win, it will be earned.

Chase Young is EXACTLY the kind of leader the WFT has needed. That he speaks highly of the QB from my alma mater is great, but that he talks him up on the sidelines, during the game, and people are listening, speaks volumes.

If Haskins had 1/4 of the leadership ability of Young, he would not be looking for a job today.

We opened as 1.5 road underdogs. We’re a better team, but Kyler Lamar and Russ all slaughtered us. We’re facing a very mobile QB here in Hurts, we’re going to need our offense to show up.

Russ wasn't as bad but I agree the offense will have to show up. We need to score 24 to win this one

Let’s face it,Smith is a game manager,always has been,dink and dunk city. He will end up starting and he won’t be 100 percent and Rivera will most likely stick with him even if he’s playing like shit.
Philly has new qb with nothing to lose,there’s no way they are going to pack their bags.
Then there’s Dallas, Who have been playing balls out since we beat them.Yes for the first time in years we were able to beat them twice in a season,but they will end up being the winner of division,They will beat the Giants and we will lose,it’s preordained there’s no stopping it.Dallas has always had our number,we’ve gotten lucky a few seasons but for the most part Dallas owns us.

This game is all about this team's heart. Rivera knows that, and I think thats why Haskins was gone basically as soon as the doors opened Monday morning. And I think Young, AS, the beer man, and Moses lead this team to the promised land of NFC East div champs.
Dallas don't got no heart.
Pederson said he's back next year so his players ain't playin to save their coach.
Rivera battled cancer
AS clawed by hook and crook back to playing condition,
And the beer man, well he does what he does and Chase Young likes that
That reminds me how much better does I like him from Chase Young sound then You Like That from the qb who shall not be named?

Seriously, this team has all the intangibles on their side. If Philly wants to win they gonna need to put 30 on in the first quarter cause once the clock strikes 2:00 in the second quarter its on, and not just on it's junior rodeo on.
