Allthough I am not a blogger for the Eagles, being a huge Eagles fan I felt the need to put something out there about the embarassment of yesterday. I am a huge fan of the Eagles even though I live in Chicago. My fanhood probably began around the time McNabb was drafted as has increased dramatically ever since. I could only see bits and pieces of yesterdays game, but from what I saw painted a gruesome picture. Ronnie Brown trying to get fancy shows the image of a team with the mindset that they can turn stops into anything they want due to talent. Newsflash, there are 31 other teams that are pretty damn talented, and two-thirds of them dont have the pressure or target on their backs that the Eagles have. This team needs to go back to the fundamentals this week such as tackling. The tackling the past 2 weeks has been a dissapointment to say the least. Defenders colliding, safeties and corners looking afraid to hit a guy. Makes me miss Weapon X and even Quentin Mikell or Sheldon Brown. We need to stop going for big hits and big plays on D and just wrap the guy up and make stops, the rest will happen on its own. Offense has some issues but Im sure they can sort those out. Enough with the Philly Fails for now.
Onto what is my third favorite NFL team after the Eagles and Bears, the Lions. I knew, as did a lot of people that this was bound to happen. For years they were bad and gained good picks and talent. Now with extremely talented and emotional players such as Suh and Megatron, the Lions are poised to make a run for the NFC North title. I dont know if they can hang with the Packers for all 17 weeks, but they will make the playoffs baring some monumental collapse or injury. With that I am going to put outmy early playoff picks just for fun. As an NBA blogger I dont really feel like talking about the lockout right now so I figured I would put these out there. Starting with the AFC first East–Patriots North–Ravens South–Texans West–Chargers WC–Bills WC–Titans
Now NFC East–Giants North–Packers South–Saints West–49ers WC–Eagles WC–Lions
Im hoping for 50% of this to be correct cuz its just for fun so we’ll see what happens!!
