One contrarian view about all the Eagles players that are out. These younger players are less likely to take plays off because they know they are putting film out there not just for Philly coaches, but other teams as well. Their talent ceiling may not be the same as the starters, but their motivation and energy may well be higher than Philly players that are guaranteed starters.

McLaurin could possibly miss the game, but Gibson is playing.

Really interested to see if Cox and Barnett plays for the Eagles.

Those guys are real difference makers, especially Cox.

Great point. The WFT must play as if they are underdog in this game, regardless of which team and players they will play against.

For the first time in forever, I'm confident in the team RR on down approaching this game with the right mindset/attitude.

Idk about the game plans, O and D, or how much the QB situation will limit the team but I'm not worried about the mentality!

Smith's starting so I'm more confident right now, but it would be better if McLaurin was confirmed too.

Ugh. I can see their defense wanting to step up their play for him tomorrow night. I think he is very respected by players.

Re: Let's try this "Win and in" again. Eagles Pregame 2.0

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Washington is planning to start Alex Smith (questionable, calf) for Week 17 against the Eagles.


Smith came out of the practice week "feeling fine" and is on track to return for Sunday night's win-and-in game. There was never much doubt over his status. Smith's supporting cast is the larger concern with Antonio Gibson (toe) and Terry McLaurin (ankle) both questionable.

Nah...most of their good players aren’t playing and some will see it as he’s quitting on them.

Re: Let's try this "Win and in" again. Eagles Pregame 2.0

I have a weird feeling that we are going to shit stomp the Eagles. I have been afraid to say it for fear of jinxing the team, but there’s something about the way they’ve been coming together that, even with the recent losses, tells me that they know this is a chance to make a statement that they’re back and that the character of these players and their coaches tells me that they will not falter in the face of that opportunity. I’d settle for a win even by a point, but I am hoping for a real thrashing. Lourie is meeting with Pederson Tuesday, and let’s give them something to make that a difficult conversation.
