Foles has a damn good group of WRs, a three deep TE corps, and one of the best group of RBs in the league. He's got some pieces to work with.

If the D steps it up and gets back to playing like the were before the west coast trip, this is still a very solid football team. If Nicky can find his 2013 groove just a little bit, there's no telling what they can do.

Ride it as long as possible. Fuck it, we're here anyway.

The Vagiants ran the ball ... three TE's ... OJ Anderson ... played field position (they had a better defense).

For me, the issue here is Gomer ... FF ran Hunt 25 times yesterday and righted the ship ... Gomer needs to pick a back (Ajaii) and feed the motherfucker.

It's a different game now and the Eagles don't have a Vagiant or Bronco or Raven SB defense, so three yards and a cloud of dust ain't happening ... but I do think he needs to be more committed and patient with the run game than he generally is.

And, although I kind of get it, I don't like the run game by committee ... a feature back gets going by having the ball.

..besides what has been stated....while not mobile he has a very good touch to the long ball. Given some time long ball PA to the WRs could become more prominent.

The left side of that fucking line really needs to get their shit together.

You look at film and you have to see that's where you attack that team.

However, it ain't over! As you say, the rest of the team just needs to get it done. we shall see
Hell, imagine my frustration as I was eight months old when Concrete Charlie and Co. brought home the bacon...alive but certainly not old enough to remember anything about it. That being said, at only three years old you sure as hell don't remember anything about it as well.

The Hostetler/Giants analogy made me feel better. That's the blueprint anyway. Nick plays well, defense plays really well and ride Ajayi. It's not impossible that they could win the NFC with that formula and some luck.

agreed. if they draw the vikings at home, i think they could win that matchup. but yeah, they'd need some luck.

dream scenario is that foles becomes the third former-jeff fisher QB to crush it in 2017. seems strangely possible.
