Yinz teams may have got farther than ours, and been better than ours this season, but your still going to end up the same place as we are, just a little later, that's all....

Don't see any of your teams winning it all, and that's what it's all about. 2nd place is first loser, all or nothing, that's how this end of the state rolls!!

You either get a parade down Broad Street, or snowballs, no in between.

If I had to bet, I would bet that you are 100% correct.
Well, the Bucs did get to play 1 more game than the Phils.

They are an unlikable bunch.I'm one of em and cant stand most.
Thanksgiving we are talking about "Home field advantage",two weeks later they are deriding Chip Kelly and second guessing the release of Jackson.

I wouldn't want to play or work here.

Eagles fans have been questioning the release of Jackson since it happened. They didn't just start in December.

I think they owed the fans a reasonable/logical explanation for releasing a guy who was their best receiver in 2013. They didn't replace him with another receiver of his caliber and got nothing for him.

The people who buy the tickets and watch at home deserved better.

Jacksons release was simple.....Kelly didn't like him. Plus there was No TEAM in Jackson.
In a way I see some of that same trait in McCoy.

You're probably right about Kelly not liking him. However, I didn't think a HC was there to like/dislike the players. ( Kelly is not there to make friends) They are nothing more than parts of a machine. If those parts are working, don't mess with them. If not, don't replace with other parts that don't work as well.

Maybe there was no TEAM in Jackson but he was their best receiver and best deep threat. The Eagles had nobody to stretch the opposing defenses this year. Maybe, with Jackson, they win another game or two. In the end, that's all the fans care about. Wins and losses.

My old memory might be misleading me but wasn't Jackson already whining about redoing his contract after 1 season into a very generous 5 year deal?
Not so sure it was a bad idea parting ways with Jackson, he already showed he was willing to sit it out till he got his way first go round, and on a team like the Eagles they didn't need another cancer in the locker room.
The thing about unloading Jackson that made no sense was taking a hit towards your cap and not getting a penny, even a water boy for him in return.
If Howie and Kelly keep bumping heads over who is in and who is out I don't see Kelly being here after the 2017......if they go 10-6 again next season and out of the play-offs he may not even be here that long.

Can't really say the loss of Jackson hurt this years team, the QB's could throw interceptions to anybody
They still had a winning record.
Besides the QB issues and early shuffle of the O line most of the Eagles troubles were the CB's and Safety position.

We will never know how things would be different with Jackson on the team this year. However, as bad as the RedSkins (am I allowed to say that?
) were, he had 56 receptions for 1169 yards and 6 TD's and averaged 20.9 yards per catch. He missed one game due to injury. Not bad for a pain in the butt.

Eagles had a winning record but they didn't make the playoffs. I'll bet most Eagles fans would want Jackson and his crybaby/sulking ways if it meant making the playoffs.

Howie seems to be Laurie's golden boy but if the Birds don't live up to expectations he might be looking for a job soon too. So far, Roseman has no accomplishments to put on his resume.

Jacksons name was heard very little during the time we were 9-3.
It's just the usual crap by eagles fans who jump off as soon as adversity strikes,then they call them selves knowledgeable.
Just the usual Monday Morning Quarterbacks+Ike Reese w/chip on his shoulder.
Nobody offered anything for Jackson,and the Redskins were the only one's who wanted him.Anybody consider that?
Could it be addition by subtraction?
He seems pretty happy losing and getting his numbers in Washington.

Any body with any sense would know that to come in here and take over this team you probably need 4 to 5 years to compete for a Super Bowl and even then it's a great task,that takes teamwork.

Not according to this fan base and press corp,its adversarial from the get go and they wonder why people very quickly stop taking them seriously.

I wouldn't talk to em either,and sure wouldn't want to work here.

How would you like to go to work each day and have a bunch of nitpickin 12 year olds who know nothing about what you do tellin you you need to justify every thing you do to them?


It may be that the type of teammates and culture Kelly bets his livelyhood on wont win a Superbowl,or they might,but I think you give it time to see.
His job,he doesn't owe me anything.

There's a rant from an Eagles fan about fellow eagles fans.

Could be worse I guess if lived in Philly area and my Daddy raised me to be a Cowboys fan and at 52 I still couldnt think for myself.
That would really suck.
All you Dallas fans need to stop blaming your parents,take responsibility for yourselves and move out of mommy's basement.

That depends on who you're talking and listening to. I heard it many times since his release and throughout the season. Just because you don't hear it on sports talk shows doesn't means the fans stopped talking about it. Millions of fans out there, ya know.

It's subtraction alright, first place to second place and out of the playoffs.

Teams deal with these crybabies all the time. How many teams in pro sports release their best position player and get nothing for them? How many do it without a similar replacement? The answer is, not many.

His job,he doesn't owe me anything.
I think the organization owes the fans an explanation when they release their best player and get nothing in return. Heck, the Seahawks got compensation for Percy Harvin.

I'm not sure what Dallas fans you're talking about.

Well we're about to see what kind of a great football mind Kelly is. He is now totally in-charge of Player Personnel, a power only maybe 2 other head coaches has.
JMO but I think both Howie and Chipper have a very narrow window to be playing deep into January or they will both be gone.

It seems circumstances have changed. Howie got what appears to be a demotion but Lurie's calling it a promotion. Chip got full control of player personnel. I'd call that a win for Kelly.

You're right about getting to and winning in the playoffs. They haven't won a post season game since 2008. They better produce positive results.

If not, the Secret Police will be escorting them from the building.

Hunting! Like a mad man. Freezers overflowing.

I had no issue with cutting that crybaby DJack. Not why they lost this year. Lost due to.......
-Losing starting QB
-Weak secondary
-SANCHEZ
-SANCHEZ (if u watched the dallas game you would understand, missed wide open receivers)


Dallas won because of an easier schedule. They didnt play GreenBay. Not much diff between CowGirls and Eagles. Both have holes.
I'm ok with this year. Overachieved last yr.

Flyers.MUST TANK THE SEASON......just like pitt did when they got that girly boy and the Russia Mongoloid.
CONNOR MCDAVID..............Please!


Phils.....Rebuilding. Any Pitt fan understands that. Geez, up until the last 2 yrs Pirates were a high school team. LOL

As a Pirate fan, I have no clue what rebuilding is/was. It never made sense to me. We went through 4 - 5 year "rebuilds". Still don't grasp that concept seeins how nothing changes after the 5 year plans. "Perpetual Rebuilding".... the Pirates way.

I'm not sure what Dallas fans you're talking about.
All the stuff on Djak is speculation,we cant prove a negative.I'm glad he's gone.
I like that the coach will make hard decisions that he believes in and not worry about the backbiters.

My beef is Eagles fans fickle nature,beat Dallas on thanksgiving and they talk about home field advantage thruout,lose some games and the coach is an imbecile.
Pretty childish,dont you think.

BTW,anybody paying attention to the games last year knows that team was lucky to go 10-6 in a horrible division and go to the playoffs.
I never saw a Philly team get so many breaks,calls,bounces,timely mistakes from other (bad) teams and stay healthy too.
As usual fans see the record and expect Superbowls,that/this team is not close to the top 4 it needs to beat.
Its a special thing to win the Super Bowl.
That takes time,maybe even a little patience both bad words to monday morning quarterbackin eagles fans such as yourself.

On Kelly,time will tell,either way.
I think he's still learnin on the job.
I would give it some time.

His team and players,coaches,and system showed up pretty good new years day.
