Foles made some great plays, sure, but I saw more creativity within a single Eagles drive than I've seen out of our offense all god damned season.

    Dak isn't perfect but I damn sure wouldn't pass any sort of final judgment on him until I saw him play under a different, more competent staff.
    Yeah, that offensive game plan, those plays, were something to behold. You don't have to do it that way of course - you can ground meat and eat clock and limit possessions with a running game, but to go into a Super Bowl with Ajayi and Blount and Clement vs. Foles and the underachieving Eagles WRs and opt for the passing game AND make it work?

    Impressive.

    It's been about 10 hours now and I have to say... I don't care for this world.

    Question: What did everyone think of the Eli/ODB commercial?

    Like I said, I can dream.

    It isn’t as though who any of us roots for really makes a difference anyways.

    I think he cares. Just not enough to say, go out and drive a brink's truck full of money to Howie Roseman's door, or some other proven personnel guy.

    Though I guess I shouldn't imply it's about money, cause it's not.

    To rephrase..... just not enough that he is willing to let anyone else get credit for building a winner.

    I think we tried to get Foles and he turned us down for KC.

    I agree.

    I hate that my son is going to grow up not able to say "The Eagles have never won anything."

    Thank god I don't live near Philly anymore.

    Does anyone really think stubborn uncreative Garrett would revamp his offense? Hell no.

    We’d be mocking Foles like we did Weeden, Cassell, Moore and everyone else.
    I think there's probably a middle ground to this discussion.

    This just empowers the fans to act even more boorish now.

    The Ticket has been running a clip recently where Jerry was telling the media that we had no interest in Foles. They were ridiculing ole Jerr, as they should.
