    Interesting, Joe Buck was just calling the World Series game last night, and tonight he's in Philly calling the Eagles game.

    Just turned the game on. Decided to choose game over debate.

    I can't believe Wentz just threw that pick in the endzone. After that long drive, he made a bonehead decision like that. There were 3 defenders on 1 receiver and he chooses to throw it there. Unbelievable.

    Do you think there is any possibility he was actually trying to just throw it away but messed up? I'm trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, because that was awful.

    I hope that was what he was thinking, because if it wasn't, then the Eagles are in trouble. Luckily, the Giants offense can't do squat, so he might get off the hook for it.😂😂

    My goodness, the Giants offense is just awful. They just coughed it up and gave Philly great field position with 58 seconds before halftime.

    Man, that is sad. The Eagles just missed a 29 yard field goal before the half. This is a sad display for both teams.

    In my opinion, Aikman has really started to sound angry or belligerent or something. Not sure how to explain it.

    Aikman had a pretty bad week because of some comments about jet flyovers that he and Joe Buck made last Sunday. Aikman actually took to Twitter to defend himself about the comments, so he might be a little upset about that, but something is definitely up with him.

    I might not finish watching the whole game, but I'm glad I just got to see Daniel Jones tackle himself.

  • stevekstevek Posts: 24,208 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Didn't watch the game because I watched the debate.

    Nice to see the Eagles pulled out the game with a win.

    It wasn't much, but I'll take it.

    From the comments, i'm almost glad i didn't watch it. LOL

    I ended up getting in a lot of the debate after all. I was waiting for a phone call to have to leave and pick up my son from work, so I knew I was going to miss some of either one. I chose the game, figuring I'd enjoy the live action while I could and watch the debate after. The game wasn't the best :* so I ended up seeing some of the debate live anyhow.

    When you know your team can win the division with a 4-12 record....

  • BLUEJAYWAYBLUEJAYWAY Posts: 5,164 ✭✭✭✭✭

    6-10 should win the Division.

    I can even see a 6-10 tie. Which makes these division games so meaningful.

    Edit to add: it's very possible. Tie breaker is first head to head and second division record. It's gonna be fun.....

    Did anyone else here this in a Fox game promo for the Phil/Giants game? The promo said "Can the Giants build on their momentum?" What from their one win?

    I find all these negative comments about the NFC East quite distasteful.

    Keep it up, and I will be forced to remove you from my holiday card mailing list...seriously.

    I'll tell you what, the Dallas organization is like a dysfunctional family reality TV show right now. Mike McCarthy calls out his players for not sticking up for Andy Dalton.

    The Cowboys were seen calling for dinner reservations after the 1st quarter. There wasn’t a Cowboys player that even played hard. Missed tackle, lazy routes. Zero blocking. It was one of the worse performances I’ve ever seen a football team do. It’s one thing to not have talent. Cincinnati doesn’t have 1/4 of the talent Dallas has but they’ve played every game to the whistle. Dallas quit. Dallas quit on the season 1/2 game out of the division lead. Pathetic

    Here’s a picture to explain why the Giants stink:

    In ten years, two lineman with your first pick is the answer to why the team has gotten worse every year since their last SuperBowl win. Additionally, most of these players are no longer on the team.

    In a good organization with a quality GM, your first round picks need to be ten year players. While most will laugh, Eli Manning should still be the QB (Ben and Rivers are both still playing) and every first pick back to Evan Engram should have been an offensive or defensive lineman. Perhaps the Giants would still be struggling (Eli haters insert guaranteed here) BUT you’d be a lot closer to contention and have a much better line even with a draft pick whiff or two sprinkled in (Flowers, for sure, and now maybe Andrew Thomas). Instead we took skill position players whom we cannot protect in Barkley (hit repeatedly in the backfield for 2 seasons, injured) or Jones (a matter of time before first concussion/injury and they’ve decided to run him MORE often as a result of poor line play.

    And I like Daniel Jones and Saquan Barkley - really - but it’s a case of the cart before the horse. I look back at David Carr and more recently Andrew Luck: you can have all the talent in the world but it does you no good on the sideline in street clothes and crutches and eventually the NFL will beat the talent right out of you.

    I don’t follow the Cowboys, Redskins or Eagles the way I have in years where the Giants are good (it’s been a while 😉) but I know that based on time and free agency the decline of the Division is somewhat attributable to the erosion of what were once mighty offensive lines. When you pay QBs and WRs and RBs top dollar in a salary cap league, you’re team is going to be in trouble. All the more reason why you have to build the rest of the team up first and try to win with the QB on a rookie deal before he gets paid and ruins the franchises chances going forward.

    One of Tom Brady’s greatest ‘skills’ was not his arm, his ability to read a defense or his clutchness (which were all great, too) but his willingness to take less money for most of his career. Even just a 20% salary reduction for a QB can net you 2-3 star players in free agency or keep more of your drafted talent.

    Just to further that last point?

    Tom Brady

    Peyton Manning

    These were the two best QBs in the league. One maxed out money the other took less and maxed out winning. Do the math and you’ll see that the difference in salaries nets you a lot of money AND other positions do not command top dollar making every dollar saved on QB even more valuable since their purchase power increases significantly when spent on other positions.

    NFC East is the best division in football. Look how competitive they are! Just a 1 game and a 1/2 separates top from bottom. Your Super Bowl champion will come out of this division. Carson Wentz MVP.
    I hear an alarm. Ring ring ring. Oh darn, I must’ve dozed off and was dreaming. Or was it a nightmare called the NFC East.
