Monday Night Football

Anyone watch the game last night? What a wild ride the Eagles have had
this year, especially the past two weeks. They come out early in the
season, looking stronger than they have for years and winning games
everyone thinks they should lose. Then they get trampled by the Colts,
of all teams.

They come out the next week, McNabb breaks his ankle on the third play
of the game, but plays well into the fourth quarter, completing 80% of
his passes and has the best game of his career. All on a broken ankle.

Then they come out the next week, led by a second string QB who hasn’t
really proved himself in 6 years, completes 50% of his passes, and has a
50% win rate. But he comes out and plays like a true veteran, looking
like he’s been a top QB for years. But late in the game, he goes down
hard and gets injured.

I gotta say that when he was laying there twitching on the field, it
looked as if his career would be over. As well as the Eagles’ season.
Then they put in their third string QB, whose experience is limited to a
half-quarter of regular season play in the NFL. And HE comes out and
helps put 10 points on the board, passes 100%, and looks like an
experienced QB while doing it.

I don’t know what to expect for next week. I think Detmer could help us
against the Rams, but I doubt he’ll be back (they’ll know more later
today). I don’t think the Eagles have a chance in hell next week if
Freely is in, but I think he could get us a few more wins this season if
we have to rely on him (the schedule is pretty easy after St. Louis).

if Warner is throwing i wouldnt worry,he’s got the jinx on him.

Re: Monday Night Football

The 49ers were so lackluster last night they probably would have lost to
the Bengals. Not to take away from Koy Detmer (ouch on the elbow!) and
the Eagles, but what the hell happened, I don’t know. Mariucci is so
conservative and boring as a coach, now they come out half asleep
instead of with adrenaline rushing.

I can no longer discuss football without bouts of sponaneous cussing. I
blame the fucking Lions for this.

Re: Monday Night Football

I think the Lions are underrated this season… although, if I were a
Detroit fan, I would be PISSED! I mean, get rid of that coach! WHO THE
HELL doesn’t take the ball in sudden death overtime when you win the
coin toss? He didn’t because of the WIND???!! What the hell is that?

Re: Monday Night Football

Philly has a great system in place that doesn’t lean on one player in order
to get a W in the win column. They have a good solid offense and one hell
of a defense. Especially the safeties and corners.

I am looking forward to a Raiders Vs Philly rematch in the Superbowl :slight_smile:

My son and I will be at Oakland for this week’s MNF (nose bleed section)
against the Jets. I think it will be a great game.

Re: Monday Night Football

Good to see you’re still around JD! :slight_smile:

I agree, the Eagles have a great team, and it was quite apparent these
past 10 days that they don’t rely on one single player. I just worry
about a rookie QB with no NFL experience. I worry about the mistakes,
more than lack of performance. He’s got a lot of potential, but he
doesn’t know the offense as well as Detmer did.

Re: Monday Night Football

As amazing as McNabb is (and talk about die-hard), the Eagles are still
very capable so long as they have Duce Staley - that guy is even better
than I thought.

But as you saw against SanFran, even when they don’t rely on him, they
can still be a great team.

Re: Monday Night Football

But they did rely on him (as they should). He didn’t have big numbers,
but he had a lot of important 6 - 8 yard runs to setup the pass.

They did a wonderful job! You’ve got to admit that both offenses
performed poorly, though. But it probably wouldn’t have been a win if
Philly’s defense wasn’t so tough.

AJ “touchy” Feely did a pretty good job too. Not his fault that the
receivers were dropping passes left and right. :wink:

-Mike K.

how about Kurt Warner?aha ha ha ha ha,i wonder if he will be on the podium thanking GOD after this season?

Re: Monday Night Football

No kidding… and by beating the Rams they did the 49ers a favor (so
they can go on to lose in the first round of the playoffs).

The last few years, the SuperBowl winner had the best defense, and if
the Eagles can get McNabb back in time for the playoffs, they’re
definitely my pick.

The past three superbowls have been won by backup QBs. Could it be a
third stringer this year? :wink:

-Mike K.

Re: Monday Night Football

No, not a chance. However, the Eagles COULD get it done with Detmer,
another backup.

Oh, I believe that it’s a possibility. Feely is a smart player, and a
good player. But he’s inexperienced. His sacks this past week showed
that. Those were the type of sacks that could have been avoided
(regardless of the protection he got).

Detmer, on the other hand, I believe could certainly get the team to the
superbowl, and even win it. We haven’t seen much of him these past 6
years, but the only guy that knows the offense better than him is the
offensive coordinator. And what he showed us last week is that he is a
championship player.
