Reason for optimism, Keith's got some

Keep hearing about how the Eagles are the highest scoring team in the NFL the last 8 games of the season. So you know that is when I like to go see who exactly the played. Let Keith tell you.

They played the 22nd, 25th, 30, 31, and 32nd ranked defenses in 5 of those 8. Yes, that's right they played the three worse defenses in the league. They also played the 18th and 16th. So 7 of their 8 games were against the bottom half of defenses. Who were these teams?

Redskins, Raiders, Packers (no AR),Bears, Vikings, Cowladies, Detroit (in a blizzard), and the Cards, their most impressive win all season.

Conversely we played 4 games against the top 3 of the top 5 defenses (would be top 4, but we are ranked 4th)

Panties twice, seahawks, and 49ers.

We also played the 15th ranked Rams D too.


Ya know we really played some god damn good defenses this year. 6 games against 6 of the top 10 teams, and we played the 11th and 15th defenses too. Oh and the Patriots had a lot better D when we played them

If it doesn't matter who wins or loses, then why do they keep score?

Yes... factoring in the wind chill, it's supposed to be near what alcohol freezes, -40F... actually close enough, -20F was reported. That's colder than a Witch's Nipple!

Finally, a tiny amount of help from other teams. OK, with those temps -- I wouldn't want to be the 49ers. Actaully, I wouldn't want to be GB either. Damn.

Trenches game.

Must control the line of scrimmage.

Unity now means wins down the road.

I have seen the saints play at the Link before - we won - tough crowd - but I am hopeful that we do well early - their notorious fans will turn on them fast!
