    That was real harsh IMO. Who ever REALLY lives up to the hype? They set you up for failure. If you lose they kill you. If you win, you're the next football god and one the best players in history. They take it to far on both sides.

    I agree and why I said it was harsh.

    On the other hand, Brady has won 3 SuperBowls and still has no hype to live up to. lol.

  3. Didn't you know Brady is the new Montana? Brady is damn good but in the first half yesterday he looked average at best. I even cringed when Collinsworth said the Eagles were dominating the Patriots the first 2 quarters and putting a good ol' whoopin on them. I said "thats it, he just cursed us". I think Dillon was the major factor. When you can run the ball effectively and eat up the clock, it opens up everything.

  4. philly will definitely be back next year. Not only is the core of the team signed (except J.Trot and mayberry) but they still have some cap room (i never understood how they pull that off year after year) so they'll only get better next year. Lewis is gonna be the reciever they hoped Pinkston and Mitchell would be when they drafted them and i think with him, T.O, Buckhalter and Westbrook (if they can both stay healthy for once) and LJ smith they will put up a ton of points next year and they will handle the big game pressure better than this year. It just sucked that Andy Reid took the Herm Edwards/Marty Schottenhiemer Clock Management Course before the game.

  5. LOL...yeah I bet he is getting butchered up there now.

  6. I think Tom Brady is overrated, he hasn't done anything super impressive, just placed the ball in spots that his receivers either get to or it gets dropped. Only thing impressive he does is not throw interceptions. I give all the hype he receives to his o-line and rest of the offense/defense. The next montana my ass.

    Oh man I've heard it all now. Ask anyone who knows anything about football and they'll tell you Brady is one of the best QB's in the NFL. It was and is apparent that he's much more poised and much cooler under pressure than Mcnabb is. Brady does not make mistakes. Not overrated to say the least. There is way more hype surrounding Mcnabb than there is Brady. And BTW Bohica you proved my point with your comments above. Wow. And I don't know about you all, but am I the only one that noticed that the Pats had two rookies and one 2nd year guy in the secondary (after Eugene Wilson left the game)? They still did a damn good job regardless. They also exposed the Eagles for what they really are and that's a one sided offense. Props to the D.

  8. Dude... I think BOHICA was being fatuitous

  9. Give philly credit they pushed New England pretty hard.I do not think Mcnabb is overated he is a terrific quarterback, but I do agree the lack of a running game gave New England a big advantage containing him with different blitz packages.

    Exactly. All these people want to say "Mcnabb is overrated" when it comes down to New Englad had a very good running game and Philly did not. If you have to throw the ball 51 times, you're going to get picked against a top defense. But I guess you have to be flawless and win 3 Superbowls for you to NOT be overrated.

    Some of these comments are flat out comical.

    Ask Brady to throw it 51 times without a running game and he will get picked quite a few times. He had one fumble, one he chucked up in the air because he had a hand im his face that easily could have been intercepted (2 eagles standing aorund the ball) and one right through Sheldon Browns hands. So he was far from flawless.

    New England played a great game. I just wonder if some of these people actually watched the game or just listened to the sports writers rendition of it.

    I guess you are. Good teams have depth. Sheldon Brown and Lito Sheppard (both in their first FULL season) were unknowns last year but they are pro-bowlers now. On teams like these, second string could be starters for other teams.


    One sided offense? I tihnk everyone on this earth knew that so no, they weren't exposed. If you actually knew anything about the Eagles they count screen and short dump off's as running plays. THey don't try to run the ball 25 times a game.

    Even though tehy lost, I have a good feeling. They are getting everyone back, have their core signed for a long time and the coaching staff is going nowhere. Barring injuries, they should be back!
    LOL I had my McNabb jersey on which unfortunately got beer and chili all over it haha. I feel the same about next year though. We have some money to spend and were a young team so as long as we stay healthy we got a good shot at being in Detroit. We need a running game though, lets sign barry sanders. LOL

  14. Brady did have a game with no running game and he had to throw it all game long...34-20 loss to Pittsburgh. Brady 25/43 271 2tds 2 INTs (numbers look a little like McNabbs don't they). Anybody can have a bad game when the D shuts down the run and they know you have to throw.

  15. Truly some boneheaded throws.. and some MC Nabbulous ones as well.
    How does a man throw a bullet between two defenders with the rush coming, off his back foot, then lob a duck down to the goal line?

    They're rookies for christ sakes. Anyways, whatever. And you wonder why Mcnabb has a high completion percentage. Most of his passes are high percentage throws (ie dump offs and screens). C'mon now. Westbrook is a very good player. He caught a lot of passes from Mcnabb that were way off the mark. He's really good in the open field too. Without him, Mcnabb could have easily passed for under 300 yards. In fact, most of Mcnabb's throws were off. His recievers made some really good catches in that game. Bailed his ass out several times. Oh and runs and screens are totally different. I don't know how you can say they count them as runs.

    I'll give Mcnabb that. That was an awesome throw between two defenders.

  18. IMO Philly had a golden chance to go ahead of New England by a solid margin early in the game but they just didn't have the killer instict that they needed to win. I was shocked that TO played as good as he did, he earned a lot of haters' respect back.

    And JMO, McNabb is an elite QB, many teams would kill to have him and QB's are not solely responsible for the team's success. I'll take only take Manning and Brady over him but that's it. Reminds of how some people doubted Steve Young (some wanted him out LOL) because the 49ers lost back to back NFC title games to the Cowboys but it wasn't his fault the defense let the team down. I know it's not the exact same scenario with McNabb but have faith in him and keep him healthy

    I loved Steve Young. Biggest heart of any quarterback I've ever seen play. Now a Hall of Famer. Well deserving of the honor. Marino was a lock. No surprise there. And I'm done argueing about this season. Time to look forward to next season. Oh and if you're into betting Iron Warrior, the 49ers are at a 250 to 1 longshot to win the Super Bowl next year. You want in on this action?

  20. I wouldn`t take anyone ahead of 5.. Except maybe Culpepper with the right coaching.. or the next Superstar QB.. Leftwich

    Brady may throw the best deep ball in the league and he obviously is very well schooled but do you think he wins
    with James Thrash and Todd Pinkston as his receivers?

    Peyton set the world on fire, but he has too, he has no defense and every game must be a shootout... To me he lacks that mean streak and hard ass attitude.. 5 may have looked terrible at times but under constant pressure he stood in and threw for 350 + 3TD`s.. not to mention he played a game with a broken ankle and 2 quarters against Carolina last year with seperated rib cartilage...

    no way I'm okay, I'll be happy if they can lock up Julian Peterson and have a good draft for the moment

    Key word "good draft"...make that "great draft"...

    Do you even watch the Eagles? I would assume not since you are over there on the west coast. High percentage throws? You obviously have not watched them this year. Now you are just pulling **** out of your ass.

    You make more excuses on how not to give credit to Mcnabb. Oh now its Westbrooks skills that got him over that 300 yards mark. Did you see how many passing yards Tom Brady got off screens last night? I'm starting to believe you didn't even watch the game.

    Obvisouly runs and screens are different and of course you don't know how I can say that because you DON'T FOLLOW THE EAGLES! ANDY REID COUNTS THEM AS RUNS! LOOK IT UP!

    For love of God stop talking out your piehole and worry about your team. Vegas odds has them I tihnk 263:1 to win it all. Stop hating on everyone else because your teams is the worst in the league.

  24. You win, I lose. The Eagles are god, the Niners suck. Mcnabb is overrated, blah blah blah. I hate the Eagles for a good reason. The truth is my wife's ex is an Eagles fan and this SOB had the nerve to call her to get back together with her when I was overseas. Anyways, he's diehard and I wish he would die hard. I hate everything about him, including the Eagles.

    I'll stop talking **** now. I tend to argue with people just to get a rise out of them. Looks like I succeeded. Truce?

  25. A rise? More like laughing at your nonsense and just showing you that you don't have a clue what you are talking about.

    It seems you hate a lot of people. Maybe you should take care of that before making an ass of yourself towards others. Don't go through life being a mosquito.

    You want to be an instigator? Do it somewhere else. I don't have time for the teenage bull****.
