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.

No way. The Giants are a fraud. I still think Manning sucks even if he had a few good games. The best bet to beat the Patriots was the Colts, and they sucked it up last weekend. I suppose GB has a chance.

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

Sorry you feel that way. It is what it is.

I think GB has as much chance of beating NE as NY does, which is to say, about 5%.

If NY doesn't get consistent pressure in Favre's face (like the first time they played when he completed something like 18 passes in a row), it will quite likely be a slaughter. If NY does get consistent pressure in Favre's face, then it's a toss-up.

It's hard to take a whole lot from when they played in week two though. GB has a much better running game now, and NY has a much better pass rush now.

The Chargers kept it close and played their hearts out, but just too many injuries to contend with.

My feelings are mixed towards the Patriots going undefeated, I can't stand Bellichick or the cheating scandal; and they are the current fair weather fan team, which I also hate.

But it would be good for the players to be able to add being undefeated onto all of their other achievements over the last several years. Bellichick may be a cheating, score running up asshat, but it still comes down to the players on the field. I'd also like for Junior Seau to finally get his ring. (I've liked the Chargers since being stationed out there in the early 90's, hard to believe Junior is still playing!!)

Giants win again.

This team is hot. It'll be hard to hold the Patriots under 21 in the Superbowl, but hey, you never know. Plaxico Burress played the best game I've ever seen him play. If he plays like that, and the Giants defense (particularly the line) plays well again and pressures Brady, they actually might have a shot. I was actually with them when they played in Week 17.

That being said, it'll be on a grander stage and at a neutral site, so my money still goes to New England...

Who knows at this point. I still think the Giants and Manning are total frauds. GB played a crappy game and the Giants still barely won. In fact, Farve lost it for them with that pick.

I guess I have to root for New England even though I hate Bellicheat and company. I really want to see Eli sacked back to stone age while Tom Coughlin's head literally explodes on the sidelines.

The bookies would agree. However, both teams are quite capable of playing in lousy and nice conditions. The Giants benefit from being in the NFC East, so their defense has to be first-rate, but, of course, they play the Patriots. The Giants came close in the final game of the regular season, and I honestly think this the best team the NFC could have put up against the Pats.

It actually makes me happy that GB lost. You need a great pass-rush to beat NE, which GB does not have.

Eagles sign league's top corner....Asante Samuel.

http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5g...fHzIgD8V4GHRG0

Now, you're probably expecting me to do a victory dance. Not so. I think he'll make a great addition. But they were really fine at corner, so unless they are going to can Lito Shepard, I don't know as it's a move I understand. Of course, they might move Sheldon Brown to to Safety...he played that position in college.

Right...well next step: Kick returner. After that, Defensive End. Last piece will be a little wideout help.

building up for NOW and for the future...If Lito or Sheldon or Asante get hurt, you got no weakness in the secondary.

Interesting. Like you said, it's not like they needed the help at corner, unless there is some injury concern we don't know about.

Personally, I'd put WR help first, then DE then a returner.

I disagree. Reggie Brown and Curtis can easily get the job done, especially of LJ Smith is healthy. Couple then with Westbrook and a healthy McNabb, and they'll be quite strong.

A WR would be nice, but unless it's a marquee player or someone that can really stretch, I don't see the point. What they MUST have is a kick returner. They would have won probably two more games if they had that (at least the GB game). They also need to take care of the DE position. WR is a priority, but the last one IMO.

They are all important positions that need filling. Curtis and Brown are adequate starters, but what I meant was a marquee WR who can scare a defense and draw the double team, things nobody presently on the Eagles can do. Teams played us with 7 in the box almost the whole year, no respect at all for the WR. (which makes Westy's year look even better!) Look at the difference in McNabb's numbers when T.O. was playing well, and before and since.

L.J. is a question mark coming off of injury, but I think Celek has potential at the TE spot just in case.

A DE to bookend with Cole would be good of course.

But of course, if any of us really knew what we were talking about, we'd be getting that cushy front office salary!

The Eagles have filled that DE spot, with Chris Clemons. I haven't seen him play myself, but from articles I've read he has a good upside, as long as he can avoid the injury bug he's been having trouble with.

Is this really the most current EAGLES thread?

Wow, what a fun game to watch. But I need some considered opinion here. What are our chances against Dallas on Monday. I'm not sure how much weight to give a dominating performance against St. Louis--They looked just terrible.

Anyway, I work with a big D fan, and I don't want to talk too much sh!t if were gonna get creamed.
Well, actually, I can't help it with a Dallas fan. I will talk either way. But I'd like to know your opinion of their relative strengths...

The Eagles looked sharp, but that was only the Rams. Monday night will be the real test. That new kid Jackson looks like the real deal at WR, reminds me of the 'Smurfs' guys on the Joe Gibs Redskins teams. Might be a little too small to be out there ever play though.

They certainly did look great. Yes, it was the Rams, but they still had to execute. And, it's not like last year where they looked bad in prior games, then slammed a team later. BTW, I was at the game (at 7 am!).

Dallas is only "the real test" in the sense that we see how they look. It's only week 2. If they pull off a win or a even a narrow loss, a lot of people are going to put them "back on the map" in the NFC. I can't say I'll be surprised if they win. I've felt the team has been really underrated coming into the season...which is sort of the opposite of what has happened in the past two or three years. That said, Dallas is very good (as much as I hate them with the burning passion of 1,000 suns). So...who knows. I just know I'll be at Winner's Circle in Exton for all you can eat wings and crab legs. That's right...bitches.

What negatives? They got a pro bowl QB for chump change and does 7.5 yards per carry.

Sure, some PETA folks are pissed but he was getting back in the game anyway and given that kind of versitle player the Eagles are going to be really interesting.

Yeah, I can't believe the picked him up. But then again, this is the same team whose fans threw snowballs at Santa Clause, so maybe it's a perfect fit.

As far as his contributions to the team, I think he's a heck of an athlete and as such I think he will definitely help the team. And as a NYGiant fan, I have to admit his addition to the team worries me...

There has been a LOT of negative attention, not just from PETA. Many fans are refusing to support the team as a result. It won't hurt their bottom line, but it's happening. The Philly sports media is going through convulsions on talk shows with fans. We had the NAACP and black clergy on the street before Thursday's game supporting him. We had other protests against him.

We have an established quaterback and a backup who the Eagles describe as a "franchise" player. We have a solid third string QB as well.

For all the controversy, we get a guy who hasn't played in two years and who will basically be a trick player.

Don't get me wrong, there are a lot of advantages. He looked good the other day and I'm not in the "super pissed off" club.

Well I'm cautiously optimistic for the upcoming Eagles season. The offense should be strong but there are some big question marks on defense. Still don't understand the point of the whole Vick thing, the Eagles don't have a history of being a gimmick team under Reid...

Well, I honestly have no clue about this year. 2 months ago I would have told you I thought they had their strongest team since 2003. But then Bradley went down...the Andrews thing kept going, etc. My biggest concerns are:

1) Offensive line. We need Big John Runyan back, and we need him back badly. Peters should improve, but has not been impressive. I'm one game away from completely writing off Winston Justice. Shawn Andrews is becoming an unmitigated joke. The Eagles need to cut him if he doesn't get his shit together. Who knows about his brother.

2) Linebacker: Bradley is a big loss on a unit that I never considered among the Eagle's best anyway.

3) Safety: Demps decided to tank it, thereby giving Harris a chance. Who knows. Obviously Dawkins is gone. We still don't know how much that will affect them.

4) McNabb: I want him to do well, but I thought he looked terrible nearly all pre-season.

There have been a lot of great additions, like Maclin at WR, Weaver at FB, McCoy at RB. We also have Jackson, who could end of being a beast of a WR. In fact, the receivers are the best they've been since I've been a fan.

At this point I don't know if Vick is a positive. I do predict that we'll have a QB controversy within about 5 weeks. The fans were already calling for Vick in the pre-season. Wait until McNabb plays like he did in Baltimore last year. There will be riots.

Anyway, I hate to be negative, but I just have no idea what to expect from this team. We'll see tomorrow. If they suck, I'll still have 90 wings and a 30 pack of Miller Lite, not to mention a few nice cigars.

A 3-1 wing/beer ratio is somewhat suboptimal. I'd get 120 wings.
