    The Eagles team we faced is considerably better than what *** is running out there

    They would be stupid to risk smith

    it sounds like to me that this smith injury is going to linger

    me thinks it’s going to be the kid who replaced Haskins as the starter

    Haskins is not playing another game for ***. Stormed out and ignored his required press availability... he literally said this week he needed to be more accountable. He's either inactive or just a straight up cut. No one is going to give up anything for him

    no team wants to end the season with a loss.

    If Alex Smith plays, the WFT will win. Otherwise, it's anyone's guess who wins that game.

    Depends if Fletcher Cox is playing.
    They were a completely different team once he went out today with injury.

    This...............Cox is the key to Philly's defense, without him they cant generate any pass rush up the middle and their secondary sucks too bad to cover if the QB has time.

    If Cox doesn't play I am not very optimistic about Philly winning, especially if Alex Smith is back.

    We are currently picking 11 right now so even if both us and Washington win next week we should not drop more than 2-3 spots.

    So worst case scenario is we win our last 4 games but lose division due to tiebreak to Washington and pick around 15.

    IMO next weeks game hinges on Alex Smith playing or not. I don’t think philly wins if he plays.
    If Haskins plays, philly should win, he’s terrible. Haskins did get benched so interesting to see who will start if Smith can’t go. I’d expect Smith to play if remotely possible as this is a playoff game for them.

    Our best hope is that Alex Smith won't be ready to go but either Hurts or Wentz will be determined to give it their all for the sake of the starting job next year/contract.

    This is the most likely scenario.

    I think J. Garrett has some surprises up his sleeve for the game next week.....it's his "revenge" game, and I'm sure he would love to play "spoiler" to his former team. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. :p

    Coaches and players don't think like fans.

    I think that the game between Philly and the Washington Football team depends on 2 things.

    1, Can Alex Smith start,

    2. Can Alex Smith be recovered from his injury enough to be effective and productive to have a good game or at least manage the game enough against Philly's defense to win.

    I don't know if the Eagles players and coaching staff on in good enough position to lose the game on purpose. Especially if the front office of Philly were in favor of keeping Wentz and getting rid of some Eagles players and coaches just to give Wentz another chance with different players and coaches next season.

    They are calling for Pedersons head on a platter. He needs this dub heading into the offseason

    Some probably do. Some probably don’t.
