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

And consider that we now have a backup we at least have some faith in. I'd say with Smith, McLaurin and Gibson all back we have a damn good chance. With Heinicke having to go in we at least have someone that looks like he's accurate, knows the system, can manage the game and above all its motivated; everything DH appeared not to be.

I think we could take this 24-14. Hurts hasn't faced our D yet...

slow start + lucky bounce or 2 eagles way = panthers game all over again

This offense cant be relied on to come back from a double digit deficit. Not sure it is fair to ask the D to throw another 2nd half shut out.

Eagles are favored to win -1.5 line
Actually the line has swung from Philly being favored by 1 to WFT being favored by 1.5, so that means heavy bettor action on WFT

Man, the Rams might just get bounced from the playoffs this week if they don't handle their business. Chicago would have to beat Green Bay, which isn't likely, but a few weeks ago I would not have thought they would be in this position - needing help to get in.

Give Alex a half commmittment only. Of course he's such a great team player he would pull himself if he was ineffective first anyways. Its entirely possible both play. Frankly, that scenario, plus a win is best case because then Heinecke gets more game experience. I do not agree to olay a guy off the street over the only qb in memory with a consistent winning record. Smith makes everyone around him play their best, regardless of his shortcomings. My greatest fear is not effectiveness as he self manages. It is him actually getting permanently disabled. If he cant sprint, he should not go in under any circumstances

Jim Schwartz is declaring the game a no hat game - ie, donít let your opponent don a division winner hat in your house. Fuck that guy - Iíve always hated that rat faced bastard. I hope we crush his D and then someone strolls over and plants a hat on his head.

If Alex plays and is healthy, and McLaurin is back, Iím very optimistic. If either of those doesnít pan out, Iím decidedly less so.

I may start a thread called, The Kids Are Alright. In mulling over our roster and focusing just on the two youngest classes, we have a lot of cause for optimism no matter what happens Sunday. Young, Sweat, Curl, Gibson, McLaurin, Holcomb - we have a lot of really young guys playing well. I read an article this am which Iíll try to post that makes a pretty compelling case for Curl being in the mix for DROY.

More than any time I can recall in recent memory, I really do feel like we are headed the right way.

On to Philly.

I think at this point Alex will err on the side of caution and not play if he doesn't feel he can protect himself. If he's not 100% or very close to it he won't be out there.

Keep Hurts in the pocket. Heís barely completing 50% of his passes. He does damage on the run.

Yep - I think if you shut down M Sanders, contain Hurts, and don't turn the ball over, it's a wrap.

Philly will show up; they hate us as much as we hate them. What tips this in our favor is RR getting rid of Haskins. This energizes the whole team and especially makes our offense better in ways that are both predictable and inexplicable.

Game is somewhat close into the second half, then we blow it open on a defensive TD to win going away, 31-19.

That didnít work well against Carolina and Philly had like 6 receivers that can play (TEís included) defense needs to play with reckless abandon from the beginning.

Exactly, the d-line will need to keep contain and stay in their lanes, and then get their hands up to bat down balls when he throws.

You are absolutely right, and if Smith can go, I'd start him. But, I'd have an awfully short leash if he is not mobile enough to make plays during the game. Certainly not wait until he 9:00 mark of the 4th quarter.

They had FOUR turnovers against Carolina. That was the difference. Philly has more weapons, but the same strategy applies.
