Well, I am alive and well. As many of you know, I was a true believer when Foles played for Chimp Kelly. Foles is no Carson Wentz because Wentz has that weight that gets him out of tackles (See Big Ben even though he isn't Big Ben). Eagles will have to run more and tediously march down the field. The defense has to step up big time! There is no way this team wins a Superbowl unless the defense steps up. With that being said, the Eagles should win out, win all the playoff games at home, and then win their 1st Superbowl in my lifetime!! Go Birds!!!

My son told me there was a long line of people at the Walt Whitman bridge waiting their turn to jump.

Apparently, the odds makers agree that "Foles is no Carson Wentz". Before the Wentz injury, sports books in Las Vegas had the Eagles at 4-to-1 to win the Super Bowl. Only the Patriots (2-to-1) and Steelers (7-to-2) had shorter odds. Now the Eagles are at 10-1.

Mixed feelings on Giants-Eagles. On the one hand, I really don't want the Giants to win another game this year so they can secure at least the #2 draft pick. On the other hand ..... GO BIG BLUE. I hate the Eagles and I've love to play spoiler.

It's a dilemma.

I had no idea Carson Wentz played defense. He must have, because what else other than his loss explain the Giants scoring 3 touchdowns with over 13 minutes left in the half.

The Eagles defense has been playing like shit lately. As I posted earlier in the week, the defense is going to be the group that must step up. Foles is solid shouldn't really lose games. The Eagles have a ton of weapons so pick your poison. Currently the Eagles are up 31-23. Looks like the defense decided to show up this half

And just as I post that the Eagles give up another big play. This is an all or nothing defense.

Giants manage to hold on and nail down that loss, but that was a little nerve wracking for a while. It also does not bode well for the Eagles in the post season. If the Giants can put up 29 points against your D, what is a team with a legitimate offense going to do to you?

I actually consider this a win-win. The Giants lost and preserved their #2 draft spot, but they helped expose some issues with the Eagles that better teams should be able to exploit and take them out of the post season easy. Schadenfreude rocks.

Sadly, your post is accurate.
