    I can't believe they are on the radio ragging BP "for a win"!!! They are moaning and complaining because we didn't open up the offense earlier. It's all about execution people. The same thing could have happened earlier if the team would have executed.

    They also are ragging him for his demeanor in the post game interview. Again, unbelievable. We just won the biggest game of the year so far and all they can do is complain about a post game??!!! :shootme: I'm sure .... I am positive that BP has an "interview face". There is a method to his madness. The same reason he is playing the young guys no matter what .... the same reason he keeps calling running plays when it wasn't working, the same reason he runs plays for guys who hasn't been in the game the entire day ... etc, etc. He runs the practices, the game planning meetings, the motivation of players, the game days. We don't know jack!!! It's his world and we're just in for the ride. I love it when a plan comes together

    Some people would just rather have the Gaileys(sp) and Switzers of the NFL here. Parcells knows what hes doing, hes proven himself more than once. What do the fans do for a living?

    I love Parcells, but he gets way more credit in the league than his 57% winning percentage deserves.

    Well, I know we as fans think we could coach any team LOL but it does make sense. I mean, why open up the offense so much for a great defense like Philly, but NOT the inferior defenses?

    I think one of Parcells's biggest weakness is he reacts too much to previous problems. His running backs, corners and receivers were hardest hit with injuries last year so which positions does he give the best depth? You guessed it. Meanwhile, new positions such as the linebackers give us the biggest worries this year, but Parcells skipped on veterans such as Peter Boulware or Jamie Sharper.

    I think the same thing applies with this. He thought he could open up the offense last year and sling it like crazy but he was burnt bad with that philosophy. He decided to play it close to the vest this year, was probably too conservative, and faced with a 2-2 record in which some of those losses were due to his conservative playcalling, he had to do something different.

    I think Sean Payton should be given great credit, he called a great game, he was one step ahead of them all game, and that Bledsoe---he was the greatest free agent aquisition since Deion, Jerry stand up and take some credit, you may have struck out on several occasions but baby you hit a hr on him....

    You say that like the 57% winning isnt good but he took over 4 teams that all sucked and built them up. Of course the winning % isnt going to be high because he had to go through the growing pains on 4 DIFFERENT teams! and build them up to playoff teams!

    I said several weeks ago that DB was going to be our biggest off-season transaction. He's certainly making that true. The QB touches the ball on at least half of all plays so its important to have a guy there that can do it.
    BP called a conservative game when we had QC back there because we knew he couldn't throw it or make good reads. He then trusted VT too much and it cost us. Seems like he's been a little reluctant to trust DB but its blatantly obvious that this guy can play QB at a high level still.

    BP is doing what Nick Saban told the press a couple weeks ago. When he calls the opposing coach and tells him what they are gonna do, the next call he'll make is to the media.

    Mickey and the rest of the guys should get a clue. He is on the Ticket talking about Bill said he is not gonna allow the opposing offense to dictate what his defense does. He put in the nickel against the 3 wides right off the bat. He never did that before. Oh, golly gee, I wish he would have told us this before the game and then we would have known (sarcasm).

    If BP is doing the opposite of what he tells us, it doen't take a brain surgeon to figure out why. He doesn't want anyone to know!!! I am so sick of hearing people say BP is inconsistent, contradictary, conservative, con man and all the other crap.

    You can make some of the people happy some of the time, but you can never make all of the people happy all of the time.

    Some are just wired to be negative and can not even sit back and enjoy a game where we completely won all three phases of a game vs a team that has killed us of late and has been the best in the NFC East the last many years.

    Some people really should drink some metamucil or go out on a date with Prince Valium. :D

    part of the reason for that low % is cause he gets hired to turn teams around, meaning he inherits awful teams, has a losing record for 2 years, a winning record 2 years after that, and then leaves when all the good players and peices are in place.

    I think BP sees a game like yesterday, where we are clearly not as good top to bottom as the opponent, and it makes sense to open things up...take some chances and let it fly. But when he plays a team that he thinks we match up well with or are even supposed to beat, then he goes conservative to avoid "losing" the game, thereby keeping our opponent in it till the bitter end.

    It will be interesting to see if the offense continues to play wide open, or if when we play inferior teams again if he'll pull in the reins....I hope not.

    I like the way you stated your opinion wayne. I can tell you are rational and open minded. Why can't the majority be more like you :D ? I like the way you can voice a different take without absolutely ruling out any other possibilities. Good read :)

    Hey SB I bet you had a good time watching that game huh? It was a beauty, what was your favorite part? Mine was seeing Ellis and the D-line converge on McNabb play after play.

    It's all about execution baby!!! I was so nervouse about that game yesterday, I couldn't eat after church services. I nervously did house work and even washed my car. I love to eat so this was a new venture for me. I only have 2 more fears: Patrick Crayton is too loosey goosey with the ball. BP needs to handle this. And Tyson Thompson needs to hold on to the ball. BP is already addressing this, I believe. Giving the ball back to the rookie also says "you're going to hold on to the ball or else".

    Yep hopefully leaning on the young guys now pays off even bigger dividends towards the end of the season.

    People complaining about Parcells after the win reminds me of the quote Calvin Hill had about Cowboys fans. If they score 14 points in a quarter, they complain that you didn't score 21 points. If you score 21 points in a quarter, they complain about not scoring 28 points. If you score 28 points in a quarter, they complain that you didn't do it on their side of the field.

    Anyway, I really haven't had too much of a problem with Payton's playcalling except for when they got into the red zone. Up until the Eagles game, he would get ultra conservative and predictable in the red zone and I felt that some points were squandered. Yesterday, he seemed much more aggressive.

    Here's another thing. We may just be a pretty good running team and that's it. Thus, in order to run effectively, we may just have to throw first to eventually set up the run.

    That's what we did against Philly.

    Rich.....
