Rodgers is a beast and Wentz hasn't even gotten to his level yet and he hasn't won in 7 seasons now.
The eagles would be a stone cold lock to go to the super bowl if Wentz were the QB right now. Sorry bud.

Eagles played their worst game of the season in Seattle and still were 1 shitty forward lateral out of that game.

There is no way you can convince me this team wasnt going to win a Super Bowl if Wentz didnt blow out his knee.

That's the shame of this season. There is no dominant team. With Wentz, we could beat anyone.

Did you watch the game? Anyone who would rather watch some meaningless, third rate college basketball team over the Eagles needs to shut his yap. Now go home and get your fucking shinebox. Fraud.

Not to mention that, despite his difficulties, he made a throw to Agholor that might be the best fucking play I've seen all season.

On the run, getting hit and falling near the sideline, he throws a 50 yard dime.

If they do win the super bowl there will be more threads talking about what went wrong in the game than those celebrating. Foles was ok but if we had had Wentz we would have scored 50.

No there won't ... that's fucking silly.

And has nothing to do with sneering at the nitwit notion that the team isn't severely diminished by the loss of a guy who plays the most important position on offense and is in the conversation for best player in the league this year.

By the way ... the fact that they are severely diminished by lack of Wentz does not mean those who view this with the impact it deserves are not rooting for Foles and hoping he gets his groove.

I keep looking at it as 12 good quarters - that's all we need. Not sure it's entirely do-able, but if we've ever needed to see this team stitch 'em together, it's now.

I will say, if there's one thing we, as Eagles fans, deserve, it's knowing that it wouldn't be fucking easy.

He looks great considering I saw him lose both legs during a covert mission to Iraq on Days of Our Lives.

The negativity is what is silly. Does any of this whining do anything to get Wentz back? Nope, so enjoy the ride that we donít get to go on all that often lately. Two home games from the super bowl against good but not great teams.

The only whining here is you making petulant complaints about people expressing logical and realistic concerns regarding Wentzlessness.

And again ... expressing those concerns will not make that person root any less for the team to overcome the loss of that player or enjoy it any less, if it happens.

If fact, we might enjoy it more because we'll be so fucking pleasantly surprised.

GREAT DEFENSE, GOOD SPECIAL TEAMS AND A GOOD RUNNING GAME, WITH AVERAGE PASSING YARDS MIXED IN, AND POSITIVE ON THE TURNOVER RATIO WILL GET IT DONE FOR THREE MORE GAMES. ABSOLUTELY DOABLE.

Foles needs to run for 3 first downs. If he does, we win. Sport Metrics.

The entire thing is a defense mechanism against being let down, I get it. I just think it has gone overboard. People are doing this because they think it will hurt less when they lose because they are on record saying the worst case will happen. I just think adjust your expectations to the reality and enjoy he fact they are still just two home games away from the Super Bowl.

Default No it isn't

It's a long-standing and deep-seated problem I've always had with my mother.

She was an overbearing tyrant who always made me eat lima beans ... calling me names when I tried to sneak them to the dog ... and giving me an inferiority complex.

I can't take it ... I FUCKING CAN'T TAKE IT!!!
