    Tonight offers a really big test for the Eagles with the veteran Kansas City defense. So far we've witnessed a Super Bowl Madden game offense with a top five draft pick defense in 2014. It makes the games thrilling and stomach wrenching to watch for Eagles fan but should provide great television for other NFL fans around the country.

    Ibelieve the Eagles will score over 30 points but can they hold Kansas City to 29 or less?

    Venue: Lincoln Financial Park. Home of the Midnight green.

    Extra drama

    A. The return of 14 years coach Andy Reid.
    B. My favorite player Donovan McNabb retires an Eagle as their greatest quarterback ever.

    I think the overwhelming majority of fans will cheer for both men who seemed to be tied at the hip for most of Reid's and all of McNabbs
    Tenures as Eagles.

    Prediction:

    Philadelphia Eagles 31

    Kansas City Chiefs 28

    Confidence level... 5 of 10. I fear a loss will hurt the franchise more than a win will help them. There is never a must win for a 1-1 team against a non conference opponent but 2-1 sure sounds a lot different than 1-2.

    FLY EAGLES FLY...ON THE ROAD TO VICTORY...
    E. A. G. L. E. S. EAGLES!!!!!!

    These guys suck.

    Thee, your estimate of 4-5 games looks high.

    Defense generally played better. Offense pathetic. Special teams even worse

    Well at least Reid finally won in Philly.

    Well...the positive is that Philly plays in the same division as NYG and the Redskins.
    The bad news is that they face The Broncos in Denver. Bring the O2 tanks...........

    Well...Eagles face the Giants next Sunday.
    Giants are 0-4 for the season so far.
    They've scored 61 points while surrendering 146.
    They appear to suck at this point.
    Their point differential is Jags bad....:cold:

    Can Philly beat these guys. :confused:

    You gave the Eagles more credit than they deserve. Earlier you asked why I didn't pick other teams. The Lions caused me to lose my love for football. I finally, After years of considering it, I switched to the Eagles. Why them?

    Well, hated some teams and didn like others. Some I liked. The dolphins,Chargers, Cardinals, Eagles, 49ers, and Seahawks. I considered these because I also liked their uniforms for the most part. I wanted a team that at least had hope for a future but wasn't already good.

    Discarded The Chargers. Didn't like the. Uniforms.
    49ers out. Only two wins the previous seasons.
    Dolphins, nah. Couldn't tell you why.
    Seahawks, too many fans in Idaho. Wanted to put a burr in their sides.


    Loved the Cardinals uniform. Made sense. Loved Warner at QB. Like the Eagles uniform and admired Mcnabb. Would have picked the Cards but Warner was retiring.kept vacillating between Eagles and Cardinals. My best friends liked the Cowboyd whom I despised. The rCowboys hate the Eagles. The rest is history. They booted Mcnabb before the next season.

    Your frying pan theory is correct. Truth be told I'm sorry I ever left the Lions as much as I love the Eagles. But I always still rooted for the Lions even more thaI had at the endI won't go back. I'm sticking with them. It will turn around. Sooner rather than later. I've already had so much fun with them.
    That last loss was disgusting. Humiliating to watch. They should play circus music To the team when they watch the film.


    Do I still love the Eagles? Yes absolutely.
    Will I switch teams once more? Nope. Not a chance.
    Do I feel SORTA dumb for switching to the Eagles.. Yeah
    .


    Do I feel TOTALLY dumb for switching to the Eagles? Yep.

    I'm not certain, but I believe Vick said his hammy was still a problem because he didn't want to cause controversy. Because when Foles sucked it seemed like it got better really quick. I have a lot of respect for Vick if that's what the veteran did.

    My last post here had to do with the Eagles playing the Giants.
    Well...here we go again. One would assume that the Eagles got this one
    against the lifeless Giants. Problem is... the Eagles are struggling at the
    QB position right now and Vick is still probably hurtin.

    The Giants are sadly still well in it with their single victory last week. Again, the Eagles DO have the Giants number the last few years. Then again the last Philadelphia win at home was the 4th game of the season...LAST season!!!...then again it was against the Giants... Then again that was over a year ago.

    Eagles 17-Giants 16. I'm going to run over to the SURVIVOR game and change my pick immediately.
