Owens out 7-8 weeks, will go into surgery on Wed

I don't have all the details, but a really bad ligiment tear and a fracture on the fibula about 10 cm long. Best case scenario is he is back for the SuperBowl, but they are saying he would be able to ride the bike in 3 weeks and run in 7 weeks.

7 weeks from yesterday is Superbowl Sunday.

Don't have any links, just watching the press conference now...

No tights for Andy Reid I guess

It kind of sucks though because we need Philly to win next week don't we?

Yes we do. They are playing in St. Louis. I think they can still beat the Rams even w/out Owens but it will be a lot tougher. Maybe they will consider it a "statement game' - to show they can win w/out Owens.

St. Louis plays the Jets in the final game the Rams could lose that one easily too. Of course, the Jets will probably already have their seeding set (1st WC) and may just phone it in.

The Rams still starting Chandler?

This is good news for the Eagles not making the SB!

I would never applaud the injury of an athlete but I must add that Karma is a sharp boomerang Mr. Owens. Word out of Philly is one of despair. The receiving core looks like a whose-who of human crap. Stinkston and Freddie Mitchell barely suffice as CFL'ers. Maybe they can pick-up Andre Rison off the waiver-wire.

Did you say the Eagles are going to loose T.O for most of the playoffs? Cry me a river!It's about time they got hit by the injury bug. We've been snake bitten all year.
I still think they will beat the Rams.

Well they've had their injuries too, but T.O. has carried that team on his shoulders. Now it falls back onto McNabb who has proven for the last 3 years that he can't do it. Pinkston is now their #1 WR. Who is in charge of personell decisions over there that the best they can do at #2 is Todd Pinkston!

What this does though is let teams in the playoffs with good defenses (Atlanta, maybe Carolina, maybe Washington, etc) change the gameplan to stop Westbrook and McNabb from running. They can now stuff 8 in the box and let CBs play man coverage on the outside because the WRs wont be a threat. Now you can spy McNabb with a LB and keep him from running for 1st downs. Now you can blitz, and he fumbles the ball alot when hit from the blindside the way he holds it.

The chances of them making the playoffs aren't impossible, and the NFC is still weak enough where they are a top team. But they wont be able to go downfield and they are very one dimensional now and very beatable.

Roy WIlliams its literally breaking bones the in 2 of the last 5 games

The first and grotesque on Musa Smith on nearly the same type of tackle

Now TO..couldnt happen to a bigger piece of shat

Now, when Philly fans starts talking shat even though they havent and wont win a SB remember...theyre not the Eagles...theyre the Eisenhowers

because it was the 2nd to last month of the Dwight Eisenhower administration when they won their last title

How many here can even say they were even alive then?...I cant

They'll still get to the SB, but definately lose it. Who else in the NFC is a threat to the Eagles when playing at the Linc?

Who ever thought Vick and the Falcons would beat Favre and the Packers at Lambeau in the playoffs a couple years ago?

Maybe Vick can pull off another playoff upset against the Eagles. I hope so, but I agree the Eagles are still the favorite to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl, even without TO. The rest of the NFC is just so weak this year, I don't think it matters if they have TO or not.
