I don't see the Eagles defense as particularly better than any of the starting defenses in preseason, and putting Griffin, Morris and Garcon on the field together is going to be to much for the Eagles. If anything, I worry we get a big lead early, and then let off the gas, and the Eagles make a comeback.
I agree about the offense,my main concern is I dont think the defense was tested by those teams

It sucks waiting to be one of the last games on week one. Sigh.

Yup. That's why I dislike our being on MNF. It's bad any time but especially the first week.

Well every team has part of that offense in their playbook. They just don't run it all the time.

I think as far as Kelly is concerned, right now he has a QB that turns the ball over too much and can't stay healthy. I think some weeks it will work and others where they won't get first downs and throw their defense back on the field. This type of offense isn't anything the NFL hasn't seen...Buffalo and the Benglas ran it back in the 80's early 90's. Those offenses just didn't have all the misdirection and window dressing.

The defense practices daily against one of the best offenses in the league.

How much more testing do they need?

Since the bye week last year, and through the pre-season, the defense really stepped up. My biggest concern is Fletcher getting hurt, because he truly commands the defense on the field, and Merriweather going against the Eagles because the number of snaps they will take will be hard on his recovery. Otherwise, every level of the defense is capable of stopping the threat that the Eagles can bring. Of course they will get a couple big scrambles, and runs by McCoy, and even probably a long one to Jackson, but a consistent offense that matches our points, I don't see it.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Once the first football is kicked off on Thursday I'll be entering a Twilight Zone of NFL lunacy. Nothing else matters.

I think it may be worse for me given that when I first got interested in football I was limited to a tiny column of coverage in a British newspaper every week. Never thought I'd live here or go to an actual game. I am a monster.

Monday night I'll be dedicating my game to 8 year old Tara Sankner battling inoperable astrocytoma. For each touchdown I score I'll be donating $2,500 to her family to help cover the costs of treatment and growing medical bills.

That's awesome. C'mon, Eagles, you know what your job here is!

Ignorance is pretty much what I expect from an Iggles fan. Makes you wonder if he even watched any games last year. I mean...we DID win the NFC East last year. Kelly hasn't even won a game in the NFL.

Good catch 53. That Filthy fan completely forgot about last year. I hope he enjoys watching us play on Super Bowl Sunday.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

This pretty much says it all: Why Your Team Sucks 2013: Philadelphia Eagles

This made me laugh out loud: "Kelly is bringing the Blur Offense with him, and I imagine he'll be in for a rude awakening when he realizes that his offense is terrible and he won't have three straight FCS opponents to help his players warm up for the season. It's gonna be a real treat to watch the Eagles go three-and-out in 20 seconds, give up a 12-minute touchdown drive, and then go three and out in 20 seconds AGAIN. They're poised to lose the Time of Possession battle by a ratio of 1:5. I'm sure fans in Philly will be patient and reserved and give Kelly all the time he needs to work out the bugs in his FIRE HIM FIRE HIM NOW KILLLLL HIM!"
