post #201 of 287
OK, so I know I shouldn't be happy right now, with a miserable season guaranteed.

But I am stoked!

Eagles beat the Cowboys in Dallas.
The Packers won, so big D is in the hot seat for home field advantage...
And there were three interceptions on balls thrown to TO.
YES!
It is a good day!

Yes it was. Not sure it matters for the Eagles, but beating Dallas is always fun. How about Westbrook at the end? Talk about NOT showboating?!?! I couldn't believe he did that. It's got to be the smartest and most selfless play in the NFL this season, bar none.

Nice play by Westbrook. Ugly win, but still a win. Nice point by the announcers during the game that the Eagle's starting WR would be #3 or #4 on many other teams' rosters. Of course, we're paying them #1 money, go figure!

But most Eagles fans say it's all McNabb's fault!
(not that he's a perfect QB, but he's still better than 80% of the QBs in the leauge)

Quote:
The worst was at the end of the game. Westbrook was literally held down and prevented from getting to the line for the next play. This was a clear violation that happened right in front of the official.

They tried that with McNabb too, when he made the sneak by the goal line IMHO, but let him up just before it was long enough to be clearly a penalty.

I still won my playoff game (now I'm in the championship!), even with Westbrook stopping at the 1. My opponent was starting Tony Romo. Apparently Tony spent too much of the week staring at Jessica Simpson's weird face and fake tits.

Sure, I'd bang her too, but not if I was QB of the Dallas Cowboys. Romo needs to be smarter than to date a needy, attention starved, not even close to being as hot as she's made out to be, celebrity dumbo.

I don't understand what anyone sees in her. No talent. Slightly above average looks (be honest). No personality.

She seems to be what we'd call in the Navy a 'Duty Slut' (or a 'Duty Whore' if they charge money!), the type of girl that ends up in a different barracks room every weekend, only she works the high dollar crowd.

Obviously looks are in the eye of the beholder, and she's certainly not ugly.
In my personal opinion, she fails for the following reasons:
(and I just did a Google image search to refresh my memory)

1) If it wasn't for the fake breasts, she'd have almost no curves. Rib and hip bones just don't turn me on.



2) Almost has a 'butterface'.
3) It's been a long while since I've dated, but I like my women to be able to hold up their end of a conversation. Not directly applicable to looks perhaps, but a strong factor for me.

Despite the allegations (not entirely unfounded, unfortunately) of Navy women being 'ship shaped', I've met just as high a percentage of beautiful women in the military as civilian women.

Wow, what to say. As much as I dislike the Patriots for being the current 'fair weather fan' team and Bellichick, I have to tip my hat to the players and coaches. They had some close games this year but found a way to win. Some good luck also, and few key injuries of course.

Now the question is, will they choke in the playoffs? Unlikely, but other than Indianapolis, I don't see anyone that can beat them, at least on paper, unless they beat themselves.

I think Indy, Jacksonville, and Dallas would all have a shot at beating them. I would certainly favor the Patriots in all of those games though.

Dallas has been looking like shit lately. Indy has a shot, and I think GB might if they play their best after making it to the SB.

The question for the Eagles now is how far away are they? I can't decide. My instinct is that we keep McNabb and get him some help. The first priority though should be special teams. They need a serious punt returner who can perhaps double as a defensive player. After that they need a cornerback, defensive end and safety. Then there is the question of offensive positions. I'm inclined to think Celek is OK at TE (more than OK) and that LJ Smith can go bye-bye. The biggest need for them after that is a marquee wide receiver. Other than that the issues are still coaching ones (poor play calling, etc).

The total other direction would be to trade McNabb now when his value is still high (Chicago, Atlanta and Miami would probably kill for him). If you don't, you take a risk if he gets hurt next year. Kolb is a risk though, and I still think given the choice McNabb gives you a better chance next year than does Kolb.

I say, keep McNabb and try to get some help. Spend some money on the short term. We got to make hay while Westbrook is unstoppable--running backs decline quickly in this league.

I agree, go for a #1 WR, a DE and maybe a Safety to work on taking Dawkin's place. (he ain't getting any younger) Then make another shot next season, we were only a couple scores away from 11-5 or even 12-4 after all.

There are a lot of people on AI who own estates in dreamland.

On topic: Skins sneak into the playoffs, thanks in part to the Eagles. The NFC East is so jerrymandered. . . it's fucking ridiculous. I look at the waste of resources that are the NFC West and South and think that their playoff berths deserve to be doled-out to more deserving teams from divisions that cater to real markets.

Well, whatever. Not saying she's great, but better than slightly above average.

As for the NFC West, yeah...agreed. The Eagles beat the Redskins and Dallas, though they split each series. They also came damn close to beating the Patriots. They are certainly a better team than either the Redskins or Tampa, and in my opinion the Giants. The real fuck over would have been if Minnesota made it and the Eagles didn't, as they beat them convincingly if not overwhelmingly.

Watching the Cowboys lose is almost as good as a Niners win.

Agreed. I think the Giants are going to get their asses handed to them next week though, as will the Chargers. Looks like it's going to be Brett "Country Bumpkin" Farve vs. Tom "Faggoty Hat" Brady. I may have to go out and buy a cheese hat.

I still can't believe the Chargers bear the Colts. The Colts played like shit in that game.

Well, as a GB fan, I'm obviously quite excited.

I really can't see NY coming to GB and getting a win.

Then again, I thought Dallas would win easily yesterday, so shows what I know.

It's really hard to beat a team three times in a season.

Plus, never count out the Giants' D-line. The singlehandidly won that game in the second half.

I realize he wears gay hats. Doesn't seem to hurt 'em in the dating department.

"Faggoty" was pretty freaking ugly of SDW, however. And I hated Tom Brady in college too.

A lot of black folks call each other niggers. A lot of gay folks call each other fags. Really, it's time to get past the idea that one's choice of words is such a terrible thing. If he had said "Romo wears fruity hats," the meaning would not have been the same.

Back on topic, I think the Giants can win. They have a good pass defense. In fact, I think they are the only team in the league that would have a chance of beating the Patriots. I'm hoping for them to get past Green Bay just because I think they'll stand a better chance in the Superbowl. I would love to see the NFL's cleverly engineered ratings machine get beat.

Not totally.

They have a good pass rush.

Their secondary, on the other hand, is pretty suspect. The rookie Ross has really progressed nicely during the year, and madison is smart enough to know how hide some of his physical shortcoming associated with aging.

Ross is hurt though (hopefully he can play), GB has a decent pass-blocking line, and Favre gets rid of the ball extremely quickly. While GB doesn't have an Owens, its overall receiving corps is better than Dallas.

If RW McQuarters is forced to start, the giants are severely boned.

We'll certainly see, although a good pass rush is certainly a good thing to have against teams that pass a lot, like the Patriots and Packers. Regardless of who wins the NFC final, it will be a tough Superbowl, but I still maintain that the Giants have a better chance than the Packers of beating the Patriots, albeit a small chance to begin with.
