Will the Eagles game now be easier since the team looks like its packing it in
I know there is no such thing as a game being easy when you watch the Jets play but I think the Eagles game just got a bit easier now. Those guys look like their checking out and I don't blame them. The only guys will be gunning are guys trying to earn a roster spot for next season and guys who are trying to get a bonus. Their O line is depleted, secondary is a mess, receivers are toast .... If we don't beat ourselves and just stop their running game I think we'll be fine. Unless we have a stinker against the Skins or Chiefs .... the Giants game might be doe or die for us. One week at a time but I think our schedule just got slightly easier. If we can't take advantage of this schedule at the end of the season then we don't deserve to get a playoff spot ... even if its by default.
their injuries might also be a factor. aso went down last night and i don't think they mentioned the issue but he was holding his head. it might not make sense for vick to even play if they are looking to keep him healthy for next year. jackson might be a healthy scratch by that time the way things are going but i think i might rather want him on the field the way he is playing right now.
they can't stop the run and that's not gonna change before the Jets game.
The jets have utterly failed at taking advantage of teams weaknesses this year for the most part. The teams that can't stop the run we don;t put up huge runnung numbers against, teams that can't stop the pass ie the pats we can't throw against.
Eagles r going to give the Jets fits. Vick will be playing for his job. Reid will be coaching for his job. McCoy can get to the edge as well as any RB in the league. That stretch play scares me. All this plus the game is in Philly.
If the Jets can jump on them early (which they never do) then I think Philly has a lot of quit in them. But like I said Vick will be playing hard and e can beat u by himself.
Plus every team gets up for the Jets. I wouldn't be surprised if the Eagles are brought together by facing the Jets. Jets will get there best shot.
The game I am most worried about is the Giant game. You know the Giants are going to go all out and give a huge effort.
