    Can't wait to see how my Eagles fuck this comeback up.

    No-one is above the law.

    I do not regret the chance that I jinxed this.

    The NFC south is full of bums too tho.

    Eagles beat the Giants with their practice squad. I'm ok with it.

    Yea...I won't argue the Saints are clearly miles above anything in the NFC East, but the rest of the South is pretty much on par with the East.

    Fun fact (from ESPN), the Eagles were 1 receiver injury, last night, from Josh McCown having to go in as WR. They're still bad, but man the injuries. Wentz hasn't been his best this season, but I'm not sure what the hell he's supposed to do with that.

    I guess it's that time for some Patriots drama. Hopefully it is resolved quickly.

    A couple weeks ago there was a stat that Desean Jackson had 17% of all yards gained by Eagles receivers for the season despite only playing in one full game.

    Injuries are big part of it, but it's also the coaching. The Eagles offense hasn't been the same since Frank Reich left. I'd keep Doug and Duce Staley and fire everyone else. Duce is one of the best running back coaches I've seen in a while.

    Looks like the Patriots are admitting to the fact that the film crew "inappropriately filmed the Bengals sideline."

    Their new line is: "We have nothing to do with them! It's just an independent contractor hired to make BTS videos for the website!"

    So then, what's the motivation for a doc crew to spend the entire first quarter, 8 minutes of play footage, filming the Bengals sideline, focusing on the coaches?

    100% agree. Wentz's mechanics and progressions have gone to complete shit since Reich and DeFillipo left. And I love Doug's aggression, but he needs a guy like Reich to support it.

    Carson Walch, Press Taylor and Mike Groh (who got fired by his own dad...) are complete shit. That's what happens when you promote internally without putting any effort into retooling your coaching staff. Peterson did an amazing job with his original staff, but put seemingly no effort into the current iteration (Duce aside--who still isn't ready to be an OC, but is doing a great job--I hope they don't take the easy way out here).

    Terrible game for 3/4 quarters.

    Okay game for 2/4 quarters.

    Yes that math adds up to exactly what you'd think.

    Eagles need better receivers for sure.

    Had AJ Green actually been on the market I'd have loved to see what Wentz and Green could have done together.

    Well shit, no chance in this going away quickly. The last thing I read was that they were filming scouts.

    I actually think Groh was a decent position coach. We saw some progress from players like Agholor during the 2017 run in large part because of his ability to develop talent. I was listening to WIP after the Seahawks game and heard that Groh was taking on more the WR coaching workload due to the regression at that position. I think it's safe to say Walch is out when the season is over. Hopefully Groh is either demoted (ideal) or fired as well.

    This was part of a year long running documentary series, produced by the media arm of the Patriots that has nothing to do with the football side.

    On top of that the main film crew for that media arm was in Foxborough filming for the game against the Chiefs, stuff that had nothing to do with the documentary series, so in order to film for the documentary in Cincy, they hired a crew to do it.

    That crew, unlike the main Patriots crew, wasn't aware of the guidelines about filming the field and the sidelines. They were just doing a story on this Scout for the Documentary series and filmed what they felt was interesting.


    This is not some great conspiracy that everyone is yet again trying to blame the Patriots for. And you guys wonder why we Patriots fans get so exasperated when people try to start drama about the Patriots. It's cause it always ends up like this: A sensational story that is in actual fact a whole load of hot air.

    We've been burnt by this stuff before and it would be nice if, for once, people looked at the actual facts before going "Hur dur SPYGATE CHEATING DEFLATED BALLS" and tried to levy ridiculous penalties on the team.

    The Patriots reputation is well earned and they don't deserve the benefit of the doubt.

    It may be true or may not be true, but apparantly "its for a documentary" was a part of the excuses planned last time Spygate happened.

    However, NFL seems to want to give the Pats the benefit of the doubt this time.

    lol I love both these...

    Well whatever happens they're still going to make the playoffs and then we'll see if the decline is real. It's not like they haven't been bounced early in the past 10 years at all /s/ (go back to the beginning of this decade), but the analysts need to make their talking points.
