    Don't forget the ol' forfeit......if we wave the white flag, they win as well. Of course, that never happens, but it is a legitimate option.

    I do wonder this.....especially for a prime time game......what would happen if a team just walked off the field after the anthem and left the stadium due to a protest of the league? For instance, when the NFL made that bogus fine of the Cowboys and Redskins....what if one of the two just up and walked out on the game following that decision? I am sure the Giants get a slap on the wrist, Steelers too......but the Skins and us would have had the hammer brought down on us with the fury of a thousand Greek gods.

    That's how the eagles have been winning vs good teams for the past 3 years. They no longer have Vick,.DeSean Jackson, Shady Mccoy so how the hell would their offense score 30 or more pts? Even GB couldn't do it and they were on their home field

    Yeah, I agree completely with the OP, though I prefer the "turnovers" thing to "defensive TDs" for #2.

    I have to allow that the regression to the mean... in this case, defined as the likelihood that Dak has a bad day in comparison to all of his days so far... is going to happen at some point.

    This is not a team that scares you, but it is still a good team. A good, capable team. We will have to win this game. I don't think they hand it to us. And to win this game, we're going to have to habitually score TDs, not FGs, imo.

    These NFC East games always have some non offense scoring involved. Good points...

    Which is why I said the only way the eagles win is from special teams pts and defensive touchdowns. Their offense is not good enough to score 27 or more pts

    They already shown they can stay focused. and this is where Jason is very good at. Keeping the team on an even keel.
    It's a home game, and I think Dak will keep his same poise. Wentz may come out a bit over hyped / nervous, and this is where our D needs to jump all over him quickly to keep him that way.

    I can understand that, because when ever we lose to the Eagles, the first game, all we here is how the Eagles will go to the SB...until we play them the 2nd game.

    I still think them scoring more points than us will be the most likely reason we'd lose.

    Good perspective on this game, they are an opportunistic team, with fast atheletes, control that and they a very beatable, they're talent is not at the level of this team. FACT.

    Team hasn't done well with cheese in the past. Hopefully, we are young enough and hungry enough now.

    Hopefully the NY loss still stings. We are a different team than the one that played in September, I can't wait to play the Giants again.

    If we stubbornly run into a 8 or 9 man box.

    If we give Wince as much time as we did Rodgers.

    1. Carson
    2. Wentz

    I think he Randy Mosses us. Just goes off everytime we play him.

    So the guy averaging 220 yards passing per game is now going to throw 50 yard bombs to himself?

    Any TD scored by Philthy is offensive. In fact, the whole organization is offensive.

    Darren Sproles is another way, they have to keep track of him in the passing game.
