The Eagles are stone cold locks to win the NFC again, right?

Such a clown website. Always has been.
Who cares what website posted it unless you think they made a fake video. That doesn’t make any sense

What about the Lions!

I know it's not real, but it is only half a joke this time!
I believe I have a post on here somewhere in which I said with the Lions schedule and a slight stumble by the Eagles, that is a very real possibility. That loss to the Ravens was a tough one but I think the Lions could legit win 13 games. The Eagles do have a very tough schedule coming in the second half so we will see what happens. I'm kinda rooting for your boys Mebert. It's been a long time coming for you guys to be this optimistic.

Rare air for this guy. Say what you want about him but make sure you call him a winner.

pep squad with selective football views works best on team boards, but that kinda stumps the agenda in play here.

I will note this, back when football players were just that. Guys got off the field if hurt., injured different story. I've never seen so many injured guys flop around on the field only to return in one or two plays. Maybe these guys just wanted some national attention.

Jerry is great at making money for himself and for the NFL. Winning rings, without Jimmy, well not so much.
Pretty much every owner can say this

Eagles would still be the last team I'd want to see in the playoffs.

The outcome could've been different if the Eagles went up 14-0 in the first and forced the 9ers offense to play catch-up more.

But it's obvious the Eagles have massive issues with the back end of their defense that's only manageable because of how dominant their defensive line is.

There were plays to be made in the back end and they didn’t make them. Seeing that way too much these days.

Well yeah the Eagles and Niners are clearly the best teams in the NFC and if they meet again, and likely in Philly, Eagles can win even though they got beat today

Only one real strong test for each team left...next week Eagles at Cowboys, and the Niners vs Ravens in a few weeks. Of course anything can happen in games you're 'supposed to' win but the Eagles schedule after next week gets nice and soft.

Welp, for the first time this year my OP looks
  • Eagles 7-1 in 1 score games
  • 1 score wins vs NE (2-10) and twice vs Washington (4-8)
  • Loss to the 4-8 Jets
  • Any given Sunday always applies in NFL
  • Eagles defense #23 yards/#24 scoring - teams are moving the ball and scoring points
  • Eagles offense #9 yards/#4 scoring
Due to any given Sunday hard to state any team is "Stone cold lock" to get to Super Bowl.... but if want to consider "lock" should be dominant on one side of the ball and probably top ten on the other side.

These teams looked more like "locks" in past 25 years to get to Super Bowl...
  • 2007 Pats (#1 offense / #4 defense) - avg 8 more points a game than #2 offense
  • 2001 Rams (#1 offense / #7 defense) - avg almost 6 more points a game than #2 offense
Both got to the Super Bowl (and lost).

Eagles may be favored to get to Super Bowl in NFC if they retain home field. But, I think if you can stop the run vs Eagles they are beatable... and the 49ers are one of the top run defenses.

As of now Eagles are still favorites. They will need to lose two games if Dallas wins out to not win the NFCE.

Even if they lose this weekend, the Eagles are in solid shape to win the division. If both teams have the same record, the Dallas loss to NFC Arizona would mean the Eagles have the tie breaker because of conference record. However, I don’t see the Niners losing again this season. They’re the favorite for the bye and number 1 seed.

Thanks for repeating what I just said.
