I've never seen a football hit both the upright, and the crossbar, on the same play. Sorry Bears fans. Congrats Stymie.

If Foles takes the Birds into New Orleans and beats them then he's getting another contract.

But youre also assuming that Foles would want to either back up Wentz or have to compete for the starting job, despite winning two SB. No way he wants to do that.

Yes, it seems you're answering your own question as to what that would mean then, aren't you?

No way they cut a guy three seasons after they traded up for him. I wish they would because then Wentz can come to the big city and do his than with OBJ and Barkley

Nah they would trade Wentz to get something for him. Its not that I want that to happen but this Foles run is certainly at least forcing the conversation. Dude takes us to another Super Bowl under these circumstances then things could get very uncomfortable lol.

I looked it up and Philly has an option on him for 2019 but it's for $20 million. Unlikely they'll give him that much unless they plan to make him the starter. Foles can buy out the option for $2 million and walk away if he wants.

Anyone thinking the Colts could sneak into the SB this year? Or, if the Chargers pull an upset in New England, maybe they slip in. KC just doesn't insitll confidence, going 3-3 in their last six.

A lot of people think the Saints are clear favorites to get to the big game. I'm not so sure. Their defense still doesn't blow me away. The Rams gave them a run for their money earlier this year in the dome. And the Eagles remind me of the Giants a few years ago, just get to the playoffs and go on a run.

I'm picking the Chargers for the upset. Brady has been reduced to short/check down passes.
New Orleans should handle Philly pretty easily, but Foles could add some late game drama.
KC's defense sucks. Indy wins in a shootout.
The Rams were kind of MEH in their last 4 games but Dallas just isn't on the same level.

On paper pretty much every team in the playoffs last year was predicted to "handle Philly pretty easily". People just don't want to learn their lesson...lol.

Our defense is solid after we got a few back from injuries like jernigan and Maddox has come into his own and the other d-backs have stepped up to the challenge. Our offense with Foles and now Sproles being back to full form is a different entity than when we faced NO last time. Brees will be tough for sure but sometimes that extended off time can hurt more than it helps when you come up against a hot team in the playoffs.

-9 point spread is an insult as far as I'm concerned and don't think the underdog theme that wrapped up the Eagles last year isn't back in full effect. Eagles win 31-27 and meet the Cowgirls in the NFC championship game. Then we take it out against either Big Red Andy Reid in the Bowl or Frank Reich our former coach from last year with the Colts. Bank it!

The NFL is legally non profit, but in reality is a for profit entertainment organization, as are the networks that air the games. A group of players praying together after a game, while touching to some, is not likely to be engaging to most.

I don't think they should air it on TV...and trust me...the pray to jeebus stuff isn't really of interest to me per se at all because I'm not religious...I think they could highlight it on thier social media at a minimum though after a year or two where most of the Trumpers feigned outrage over what scumbags football players are for kneeling during the anthem. Its a message of comradery and that they are actually concerned with things that they view are bigger than the game. I won't lose sleep over it I just thought the outrage over the antem protests were some of the most Trumped up(pun intended) fake outrage nonsense that we've seen in a while and I think alot of the players get a bad rap from the ignorant and ill-informed.


As an aside the NFL gave up their Non-profit status in 2015:

See you next year Indy. You salvaged a winning season after starting 1-5. Andrew Luck can still play. The franchise has a pulse again.
