haha, thanks man...nice to be aboard!
Oh okay...so it was your "humor"...I am beginning to catch on.
This is like saying the Eagles would be in worse shape by losing Donovan McNabb than we would be by losing Quincy Carter. And people have the audacity to slam the Cowboys for passing on Stephen Jackson.
Just thought I'd check in to let you know that both p-cowboyslover, and b-dog, are both a couple of clowns when it comes to talking about Eagle-related topics -- real jokesters!
I can't wait until regular season starts!
I think your opinion is well established at this point. No where did I attribute Prisco's opinion to you.
Simply put, there are a number of writers who expected Buckhalter to factor prominently in the Eagles offense. The departure of Staley surely would have increased his touches over last year.
If Levens is such a more effective back, why were the Eagles carrying CB on their roster? Why not just cut him and sign Levens?
Levens is 34 and on the downside of his career. There's considerable doubt as to whether he has anything left. Why do you think he's still available at this late date?
BTW, Levens stats from last year: 68 rushes for 197 yards (2.9 average). Who was the more effective back last year?
We'll see what Levens has soon enough. I'm quite sure it's less than CB.
McNabb was still holding on to the ball in the NFCCG. Anyway, I thought you claimed that he routinely threw the ball away to avoid sacks, leading to a lower completion percentage. Are you saying his thumb was to weak to throw the ball away?
Your story doesn't add up, and it conflicts with your earlier statements, as usual.
That's a pretty shallow reason to respond to any post Mr Credible. Let's Just wait and see what Levens brings to the Eagle grid iron; Buck is out just like Quincy. You'd better hope George stays healthy and stop worrying about our team.
Rav Dubey or not Dubey,
When Eagles-UK said ..."Alot of teams have the same situation however and Reid is a pass first coach. My point is, say a team like the skins would be in worse shape if they lost portis than we would be if we lost westbrook" ...he was actually saying that some team focus more on their running game than their passing game (such is the case with the R'Skins); hence, Buckhalters loss to the Eagles does not have the same impact as because the Eagles focus is both ground, and air attack; coupled with the fact that we don't rely on the "single" rb as heavily as let's say the C'boys (if I may Improvise).
Eagles-UK, Ouy Mate
I lived in Thetfort (Suffolk County), and in Ipswhich (Norfolk), total of 7 years. The Shepperds pie was delicious! We'll have a Ginnis when we win the NFC Championship (one step at a time).
OK, I'll buy that. But when you lose players that are superstars (and hence command the cap spaces thereof) it transends their position if you know what I mean.
hey armageddon....that's a funny picture considering emmitt ran for more yards against the iggles than any other team!!!!!
jealous to the end, in philly......
Not on that day Mr. laughologist!
Care to tell me how many starts EG has missed in his entire career?
A reality is that Injuries don't care if you're a starter, How many times you missed starting during a regular season, what Team you play for, or what's your name ...! Every team and every player in the NFL can fall subject to injuries.
Let me clear One thing up for you right now ...by NO MEANS am I implying that I wish injury upon George, or anyone on your team, or any team in the NFL! If I had it my way, I'd eliminate injuries from the game
Good luck with George -- I was merely defending my position, not wishing ill will upon George. Sorry for the confusion.
Strange that this infantile thread has moved on to talk about Eddie George. It is quite possible that he's the third best back on the Dallas roster right now. It certainly isn't a wild statement to say he's not as good as Jones.
If George gets hurt, I might actually be excited that it means Jones will get more touches. It is nice to have the old guy as depth, however. And I imagine he has a lot more gas in his tank than Dorsey Levens.
We're going to listen to you because you have certainly schooled us Eagle Fans. I hate it when that happens. Yeah, you sure know your football dude.
Perspective #1: Yes, lkelly, you sure cleared that up for us -- we're pissed now!
Perspective #2: We're F'd! If George gets hurt, here comes Jones, and like you said, you're imagining that George has more gas in his tank than Levens.
That's why you guys are so talented ... yoose; you're good you!
Perspective #3: We agree, it's certainly not a "wild" statement to say that George is not as good as Jones. You sure have football saavy!
