Was just listening to Mike Adams on 'EEI and he claimed the line for this game is opening at 23 points.

Yep. Can you imagine what the line for the Jets and Miami games will be if this keeps up?

In an attempt to bring some Philly flavor to this week's thread here's Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan hoping the Iggles can at least put up a decent fight Sunday. He also posted another column regarding McNabb's performance against the Dolphins.

Then there's the Philly Sportsline website for the latest updates on McNabb's status for Sunday.

the one thing the eagles will do on sunday is blitz like crazy. their defense is still effective, even if they did bench jerome kearse for non-production last week. the biggest asset the eagles have is defensive coordinator jimmy johnson, who can be very unpredictable.

i still say the only way to beat the patriots is to put people in brady's face on every down, or at least present the appearance of blitzing and then backing off. he'll still burn you. and he's got the receivers who can beat the blitz, make a catch and turn a short completion into a 40-yard gain. but this is the only chance the eagles have to be competitive.

Craig - November 20, 2007 03:45 PM (GMT)
The Eagles can blitz for the first 15 defensive plays.

And then they'll be down 28-0.

which is what happened to buffalo and a few other teams already.

i think the iggles are still sore over the super bowl and will turn this into a physical melee with penalty flags flying and bodies falling. do anything they can to throw the patriots off their game.

He combined two athletes from two different sports. Give the guy a break, he's only allowed to use the computer 30 minutes per day from the old folks' home.

Jerome Kersey had a pretty sweet flat top fade.

Maybe you could print a retraction/correction on page 16 of this thread.

I LOVED Jerome Kersey. Big fan of that team (circa 1992).

he missed 2 free throws that wouldve sealed the game when Larry scrored 49 and hit that off balance 3 at the buzzer

this is a good day for jerome kersey. it's always nice to be remembered. B)

Disputed off balance three.

That game was one of my favorites. Mel, who hit the buzzer beater to send it into the second ot?

What I am about to write is going to sound totally insane but I've talked to a few people in the business about this and the consensus is both spreads will be between 40 and 42 points.

I think by kickoff the Jets spread could be 50.

Yes, I'm serious.

Wouldn't have it any other way, babe.

Almost forgot till I read Reiss' notes this morning that the Pats can clinch the AFC East Sunday night, November 25...totally surreal.

In fact all they need is a Buffalo loss to Jacksonville and they will have clinched the division before taking the field Sunday night.

Jill D - November 23, 2007 06:31 PM (GMT)
From Shalise, on today's practice:

There is perfect attendance on the field, meaning defensive lineman Jarvis Green returned after missing the last two days with an ankle injury. It is the first time since Oct. 4 that all of the players on the 53-man roster were present at practice.

That's very good news, especially on Green.

Eugene Wilson's torn Fallopian tube is healed?

Amazingly, this is the Patriots' official injury report:

Probable
QB Tom Brady (right shoulder)

That's it. When was the last time that happened?

Donovan McNabb is listed as Doubtful.

Jill D - November 24, 2007 06:16 PM (GMT)
McNabb is definitely out for Sunday.

was listening to Philly sports talk today. seems they've pretty much conceded the game and are more interested in who to blame for the season. Is it an over the hill quarterback or a coach who can't keep his own sons out of trouble. Professional sports are brutal if you're not currently successful.

Jill D - November 25, 2007 09:24 PM (GMT)
Congratulations to the AFC East champion New England Patriots. May this be the first of many hat-and-tshirt games between now and February. :D

Jill D - November 26, 2007 01:29 AM (GMT)
Well that's certainly a good way to start the game!

troy - November 26, 2007 01:29 AM (GMT)
One strange side effect of the Patriots' dominance this year is that it's seemed like every game has been a home game. I mean, I know they were at Buffalo and Indy etc., but I looked at the field just now and thought home again?

troy - November 26, 2007 02:21 AM (GMT)
Hey look, it's little Stevie Gostkowski!

Gummy - November 26, 2007 02:22 AM (GMT)
Let's hope the defense wakes up at some point. Two 75+ yard drives allowed is borderline unacceptable. And add in a 69 yard drive and we can eliminate the borderline qualifier there.

Brutal defensive first half. Embarrassing.

troy - November 26, 2007 02:33 AM (GMT)
Great play by Stallworth to save this drive.

troy - November 26, 2007 02:45 AM (GMT)
Can we get Jason Priestly in here to sing "Girl You're Wicked Awesome" to Tommy?

Gummy - November 26, 2007 03:21 AM (GMT)
Maybe Philly's just extra fired up for tonight's game, but I have a hard time believing that if they played this well every week they'd only be 5-5.

troy - November 26, 2007 04:10 AM (GMT)
Welker.
