Game of the Week: Philly at Atlanta
I believe we may be looking at a possible preview of the NFC championship game once again. Despite how much I hate the guy I think the X-Factor here is...TO. Yes, Terrell Owens as much as It pains me to say it. With TO's renewed love for Mcnabb, expect TO to be the difference in this game with 10 catches for 150 yards and 2 TD's. Philly goes on the road, contains Vick and wins 24 to 14.

Ive got westbrook, crumpler and the Phily's D in my fantasy team so...
2 TD's each, the eagles win it 17-14.

I don't know who will win this game but Sage, I'd be shocked to see 44 points dropped in this one. These are two very good defensive teams in the season opener.
As for it being an NFC championship preview... I don't buy that either. Mainly, that is the prevailing thought due to the fact that these were the two teams last year and no one else seems ready/able to step up from the NFC... oh yeah... except THE PANTHERS baby! Plus, someone unexpected always comes along and plays disrupter in the playoffs. Remember, I believe last season was the first season Vick stayed healthy all year. Can he do it again?
Anyway, this is going to be a fun game to watch, that much seems certain!

Carolina is about the only other team with a chance in that conference considering how bad it is. Philly vs Atlanta or Philly vs Carolina, take your pick.Originally Posted by shootmeagain

How can you say it's a bad conference when the season is just starting? Who knows, maybe the NFC will be dominant this year? And Carolina is currently losing to NO....

Sage your hatred for philly is almost impressive. Which almost makes me sorry to have to tell you we are going to big dance and were banging the prom queen this year.Originally Posted by sage

I stand corrected, Carolina looked bad and NO really didn't play all that great either. Both teams seemed ready to give that game away. Someone is going to have to step up in that weak ass conference and I think that someone will be Philly once again.

Yeah, I was disappointed in the Carolina game... not only the loss, but the way they played.
Still, I think the NFC will have some surprises. What about Tampa? Going into the dome in Minn and whipping the Vikings. Carnell 'Cadillac' Williams, 148 yds, TD.. not bad for an NFL debut.
09-12-2005, 10:47 AM
Minnesota isn't that good IMO and Carnell Williams had one carry for 71 yards and the rest of his 26 carries went for a total of 77 yards giving him an average of almost 3 yards a carry. Nothing too impressive. We will see though.Originally Posted by shootmeagain

Hell yeah, with the Niners beating the Cowboys in OT, earning themselves a trip to Super Bowl 40 in Detroit against the defending champs where by a stroke of luck, Alex Smith (Rattay was hurt earlier in the season) throws for 350 yards and 4 TD's with a blowout win, 34 to 14, becoming the first rookie MVP ever.Originally Posted by BLANE

Either way, I think it's risky. I'll look over the props and see if there's anything that looks tasty to me...

if you touched her before the drugs you're a sick ****
anyway bro, the niners will win the "bottom of the worst conferecnce in the league" title
honestly, they are the worst team in the NFL, maybe if favre got injured they'll have some competition now that walker is gone.
09-12-2005, 06:37 PM
What about the Browns? They suck worse IMO. Obviously they're not the worst team in the NFL considering they beat an offensive juggernaut like the Rams. We will see though.Originally Posted by judge-mental

Ok... you Philly boys persuaded me. I took Philly with the adjusted line, giving 7.5 pts.
(Did I say that?)

That's called McNabb's an idiot and I'm going to be a little poorer tomorrow.
I forgot... hit McNabb a couple of times and he folds up like a schoolgirl.
09-12-2005, 11:42 PM
Eagles look like ****. They're lucky Vick is QB. If they had a real QB out there the deficit would be much greater. It's looking good for the Niners IW. Maybe they can take some of that momentum into next weeks game against the Eagles. That or the Eagles can take out some frustration and blast em.
09-12-2005, 11:57 PM
Yup, one thing you can count on is the 49ers bringing heat on the QB, BTW I'm surprised the Falcons are winning 14-10, Westbrook just dropped a key pass that would have put them inside the 5.Originally Posted by natedogg
Also, WTF was Trotter thinking, his loss is huge ? That's when keeping it real goes wrong for you. I wonder what TO will say about it "I'm not the one getting ejected. I'm not the one who couldn't stop their rushing offense. Trotter clearly cost us the game because he's our run stopper, **** you pay me"

I think McNabb had an out of body experience tonight. Definately didn't play like we all know he can. Go Niners!
09-13-2005, 12:32 AM
I know, you'll say he doesn't... tell me he got to the Superbowl, etc. but, bottom-line, HIT HIM... and if he doesn't bail physically (2003 NFC Championship) then he bails mentally (like tonight) --
Nice passes McNabb... if your boys can catch with their kneecaps.
And what's with some of the other guys? Was Kearse even playing?

Damm McNabb didn't have any passing touch and he missed Westbrook on a seam route down the middle of the field in the last drive, didn't even throw his way. I expected much more. I was hoping they'd win and kind of overlook the 49ers this week.
