Join me in raising awareness of childhood cancer by using the hashtag #TD4Tara
Playing with a purpose, I like it. It be nice if all the vets on this team did the same.

I recall Robert saying that after his first TD he will celebrate dance like the young make a wish kid did earlier at OTA's.

Speaking of celebration, is Alfred's now considered illegal?

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!"
The Emails from Philly fans had me dying of laughter.

Celebrations are ok as long as it doesn't taunt another player. Alf's HR swing is just fine.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

The thing which keeps bothering me going into this game is that a lot of Skins fans (including myself) are overly confident. Some people are predicting an onslaught of points.

Another thing that worries me about the Eagles is McCoy, Vick and DeSean Jackson. Those guys, we rarely play all 3 of them at once, because one of those guys is usually hurt. Well we get all 3 of them healthy at once. These 3 are very explosive. A rookie safety and injury riddled strong safety doesn't help stop those 3 players.

A lot of people have mentioned, and I'd have to agree, that McCoy in the zone read/stretch zone is going to be scary and tough to stop. He's already shifty and elusive as hell in a normal offense. I just have visions of McCoy in the open field and Rambo and him are 1 on 1 and McCoy just jukes the hell out of Rambo for a long TD run.

Vick has said that he feels like Chip Kelly has made him a better QB again by putting him in the pass happy offense. We shall see if he's playing like the Vick of old (2010, 2004) or the Vick of the past few years. Lets not forget, he can still run, and we don't fair well against Vick as a starter, history has shown.

Another side of this game to think about is the star player, RG3. He hasn't played in a game in 8 months. He hasn't taken a hit or sack in 8 months. He's going to be rusty to start off the game. His teammates haven't been catching passes with him under center 11 on 11, up until this past week when he was cleared to practice. Its going to be a matter of when will the rust come off? The first snap? The first series? first quarter? first game? I remember Tom Brady a few years ago coming off a torn ACL and he was clearly freaked out and not himself going against the Bills (ironically they were featuring their new up tempo offense as well).

The other thing we need to think about is the Zorn effect.
You're confused, by 'Zorn Effect', what I'm saying is the effect of having a new head coach with an unknown system. We think we know what Kelly is going to run in the NFL, but we still have no clue what he's going to call on certain downs. Just like Zorn other teams didn't know Zorn had the guts to call a draw on 4th and 2 from the 48. They didn't know Zorn would call trick plays on special teams. But like all new head coaches, they are figured out by about the midway point of the season when all teams have enough tape to figure out new coaches plays and tendencies. They problem is the we don't play our first game against Philly after week 8, we play them week 1. That is eerily concerning.

Whats to say the eagles don't start hot, RG3 is slightly rusty 2 series in and we start panicking early on forcing plays or stupid fumbles or penalties then the whole game we're playing catch up to a potentially explosive offense, while Phillys crap defense can play a bend but don't break approach with a 14-0 lead..

(I'm just saying this to play the cautious side of things. I still think we win big)

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Plus, what if Shanny pulls the ol' switchero and starts Rex instead. I have my reserves about this game. If Kirk wasn't hurt weeks ago, I would actually give him the start.
What got me down from off that ledge my friend is the team looked good in preseason, run game will be there, as will a healthy Davis and garçon. We can't even think of polumbus but I trust we can stick Paulsen next to him. Lastly, our defense can make it happen.

You probably didn't read my Entire post.

Just making sure I keep the site balanced with optimism and pessimism.

I gotta keep being a negative nancy, it worked for us last year when I was posting my pessimism/realistic comments during our 7 game winning streak. I'm gonna continue to do it this year. A weekly negative nancy post.

All good points. I expect Philly to score points and move the ball on us. I just expect us to score more. But this will be a close game. Count on it. But of course I hope I'm wrong.

In the past you actively rooted for the Redskins to lose. That goes well beyond "negative nancy." That's Cowboys fan territory.
