Who will win first, Cowboys or Eagles ?

Cowboys should start 0-7.
Eagles look a little better, but not much.

    Talk about the worm turns.

    As a Rams fan I lamented them taking Goff over Wentz for 4 years.

    Today, Goff looked better than Wentz.

    Doesn't bother me a bit. However,.......in fact......most of the problems so far this season for those two teams have been inflicted on them by the most underrated quarterback in the NFL. Wake up fans. Everybody hates Los Angeles and California. That clouds their reasoning ability. Watch Goff roll.

    The Eagles will be lucky to win three games this year. They’ve got nothing going for them.

    The days of the “same old (losing) Eagles” have returned.

    I agree Bill. In the game today they looked hapless. The only high point for them was the result of the worst play in Cooper Kupp's entire career. Other than that they were pathetic. And as for Wentz.....stop it already! He was HORRIBLE! O.K.,....I'm guilty! I don't like the Eagles.......Because....I attend a LOT of NFL football games.....and the Eagle fans, at home AND away games, are the most obnoxious, insulting, rude, crowd I have ever encountered. How do I really feel about the Eagles..............?

    I might start analyzing the high draft picks coming out in April because the Eagles may very well have one. :|

    Yea, but give us credit where credit is due...we can throw a D size battery with considerable accuracy and hit an opposing player on the helmet at 50 yards, or further if it's with the wind.

    Hammer, during those 4 years as a Rams fan did you lament that Goff, in his first year as a starter, led what was probably the worst team in the NFL in 2016 to a division title in 2017? Did you lament that in 2018 he was the youngest quarterback in the history of the NFL to appear in the Super Bowl? Did you see the head to head matchup between Goff and Mahone? Did you notice who won that game? Wentz??....give me a break. Today was his big chance to show the world that he was #1 in that draft, not #2 behind Goff. And he knew it. And he choked. I wish him the best.

    You're arguing with the wrong guy.

    I'm a die hard Rams fan since Roman Gabriel took over as QB in '63.

    Wentz can run. Goff can't run.

    The few games I've see of Wentz he completes many passes with the ball in the air for 40+ yards. Goff doesn't complete that many 40+ even with great receivers.. That is the true test of a QB, being able to go deep.

    I want Goff to be Brady. He isn't. And only today he looked better than Wentz. Like I said I only watch a handful of Wentz' games. The announcers today, who I assume have seen more of Wentz than me, repeatedly said Wentz was having an off day.

    Wentz hasn't been the same since he was injured a few years ago. He just hasn't been the same. It has to be because of that statue of Nick Foles and Doug Pederson. I know that's really what's behind all of Wentz's struggles. It's that damn statue. He probably hasn't gotten over that whole Nick Foles Super Bowl thing, and seeing that statue every time you go to work probably doesn't help. Either that, or the Eagles just suck.

  • stevekstevek Posts: 24,208 ✭✭✭✭✭

    The bad thought has been creeping into my mind lately that it's possible Wentz may not be a unanimous first ballot hall of famer one day. 🤔

    Might want to add Vikings to the list now that Cowboys have won.

    Anthony Barr out for season, plus injuries to a couple of starting cornerbacks.

    Minnesota will have 3-4 regulars from last years squad starting this week.

    Offensive line is still a mess.

    After week 3, there's just 1 win total for the both of them combined, and one tie. Spectacular start for the NFC East.

  • BillJonesBillJones Posts: 29,087 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Will the NGC be the first division to send a sub .500 team to the playoffs? Could be. I can’t see any of these teams, except the Cowboys, winning most of their games this year.

    It looks like the record for the worst division in the history of the NFL, set just last year by the NFC East, will stand for only one year. The 2020 NFC East is on track to establish a standard of putridity that may stand for all time. Their current record of 1-8-1 against real football teams (i.e., the rest of the NFL) is mind-boggling, unless you've seen them play, or try to play, football in which case the only question is how even one real team managed to lose to them.

    AFAIK, it's happened twice before. Seattle and Carolina each did it within about the last decade .

  • GoldenageGoldenage Posts: 147 ✭✭✭

    I watched the entire Eagles-Bengals game just to see how Joe Burrow is doing. The Eagles were brutal during regulation, but then went beyond brutal in OT. It was really bad. And I’m not saying that to poke fun. It was just really disorganized football. They looked like the 3rd string in their first preseason game.

  • stevekstevek Posts: 24,208 ✭✭✭✭✭

    I just read where the NFL officially renamed the division the NFC Least.

    If the Eagles win tonight, they would vault into 1st place in the NFC Least.

    If the NFC East didn’t play each other twice 6-10 might win the division.

    I think your post made the difference.

    Imagine - getting your first win in week 4, and vaulting to the top of this miserable division!

  • dallasactuarydallasactuary Posts: 2,895 ✭✭✭✭

    UPDATE: the NFC East is now 2-13-1 against real football teams. I don't care how old you are, or how long you live going forward - you have never witnessed, and will never again witness, a division as putrid as this. CK pretty much ended my interest in the NFL, but the NFC East is making me pay attention again. I was born too late to watch the 1962 Mets, but no way am I going to miss an entire division of teams who can only dream about being as good as the Amazins.

    It's a "compound fracture" from what I've read.

    I'm not sure at all how well that type of injury permanently heals. Probably from a normal civilian standpoint it's not that big a deal for normal use of a leg. But how it heals as far as professional football use is another question.

    I would guess when he comes back, the Cowboy's trainers will tape the living chit out of it before each game. However how that affects his mobility to be able to run, and be effective as a quarterback such as planting his feet, etc, is indeed another question.

    I wonder which pain is greater for him right now? The ankle or not taking that 100 million bucks?

    I've read where this division may turn out to be the worst of all time in the NFL.

    Just another Philly record i would prefer not to be associated with. :'(

    I hate to break it to you, but the Eagles are already associated with that record. The worst division record the NFC East is chasing this year was set by the NFC East last year. I know there are fans of most if not all of the teams in that division here on the boards, and I fear that is blinding some of you to just how truly horrible each and every team in this division really is.

    Philly gets healthy and Wentz balls out. They finish with a winning record and a home playoff game. Anything can happen.
