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.
Whatever floats your boat. Do you think Patriot fans have a weekly negative post? Maybe this year they start.

Skins fans, I include my self, need to realize this is not the 2000-2010 Skins anymore. There is a quality staff (not just BA/MS, but across the board) and they are developing dynamic young talent. Negative nancy's will be lacking in material this year.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

After decrying Negative Nancy's, I will throw this out there. Expect fumbles this year. That was Griffin's biggest flaw, even if they usually bounced our way. Defenses will see that on tape, and attack him more now. Also, the handoff between him and the backs other than Morris, I remember Morris talking about how Griffin holds it so long, and early last preseason, there were quite a few fumbled exchanges.

I think it will take a couple games for those type issues to be resolved.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

Didn't we have enough negativity when the team actually sucked?

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!"
Loved that part too.

"Also, owning DeSean Jackson is like volunteering to have your nipples removed."





Damn, those comments were AMAZING. This is exactly why I don't go into Philly any more. I took my son to a Monster Jam show at the Linc a few years ago and the Eagles fans were being belligerent to anyone with another team's gear on...at a family-oriented monster truck show with little kids everywhere. They're just trash.

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.
You've thought about it too much.

Zorn actually had NFL experience as a very good starting QB and as a coordinator.

Kelly's coming in blind and arrogant. In fact, I only think he came to the NFL because he was afraid of NCAA violations. He's not ready and his offense is not going to work in the NFL.

Besides, the Giants will just slow him down by faking injuries.

Re: Skins vs Eagles week 1

What does it matter if Redskins fans are overconfident? How is that a good point? If we lose, I really doubt Shanahan is going to come out and say "Well, the fans were way overconfident. That really hurt us"

Quote:
Williams was covering Cooper in a non-contact drill. The two got hold of each other and began scuffling. It was impossible to hear what they were saying, if anything, over the loud music coach Chip Kelly favors during practice.

Chip Kelly exudes professionalism.

Quote:
Williams has a history of losing his temper on the field. He was sidelined during a joint practice with the New England Patriots after getting into a facemask-grabbing situation after a play. Williams was fined a couple of times last year, while he was with the Baltimore Ravens. He and DeSean Jackson were each fined $10,000 for tussling in a September game, and Williams was fined $15,750 for a late hit in a game against Denver. Williams avoided punishment for shoving an official during the Super Bowl.
Sounds like Riley Cooper wasn't actually the problem here.

Going to be fun to watch the Eagles melt down all year.

MD, it's obvious that Chip is having them play Emo music to simulate the depression that Eagles players and fans will be facing.
