It sucks, man.  I've always been a Steelers fan, but I like the Eagles, too (mainly because they're my son's favorite team).  Without McNabb, though, it's hard to stay excited about them.  Penn State had a so-so year as well, so all-round disappointing football year for PA.


Steelers have all that bad Karma to overcome...

Many chuckles here for anything that goes wrong in philadelphia.  As a fan of the Dallas Cowboys, I love to see eagles fans suffer.  Oh the JOY when they lost the Super Bowl (get used to it, eagles fans...Cowboys fans have lost innumerable Super Bowls and NFC Championship Games).

...they have a courtroom and a jail right in their stadium.  Speaks realms about the eagles and philly.

The Eagles won't have to worry about losing either of these this year...they might have to avoid losing OUT the entire string this year if the customary Eagle's post McNabb injury malaise takes hold... :D

Bad Karma for what? Have Seattle fans still not yet gotten over getting beat last year in the Super Bowl by the better team?

Impressive, to say the least.  Good luck with it.  Keep the seller off of ebay and this site if you can, and you'll get a reasonable deal, I'm sure.

Thanks,

Enjoyed another incredible Tony Romo QB performance on Turkey Day....5 TDs, something even Staubach never did.  Ok, I'm officially on the bandwagon now, forget all earlier posts showing any doubts...this kid is the real deal.  I can see the Boys riding Romo into the playoffs like a certain Pats team did years ago with former unknown Tom Brady....I'm officially pumped about their chances this year!

Al,

Looks like the Uk team's off to a very shaky start in the cricket.

Yeah, you can put me down as a Cowboys fan now.  Romo is the real deal, no doubt about it.

They do look pretty damn good.  I still can't stand T.O. though.  Was it three or four dropped passes including that drop in the end zone where he got the wind knocked out of him?  Terry Glenn would have made that catch.  He is a big, overrated, pussy.  And another thing...I hope to God that the Cowboys don't get to the playoffs only to play a close game where it all comes down to Vanderjagt kicking a field goal for them to win.  He almost shanked another one yesterday!  That guy has some serious issues he needs to get worked out before the end of the season.

Vandershank kicks like a junkie just coming off the sauce...it's like he's sweaty, shaky and nervous, then he kicks everything wide right.   I have to think if he keeps this act up a few more weeks, monster contract or not, Bill and Jerry are going to cut the guy and get someone else to kick FGs.

Word just in that the Cowboys cut Vandersuck today and signed one of the Grammatica brothers...no more having to sit on pins and needles to see if Vandy misses a chip shot or not.  With the Giants losing in that amazing comeback game by Vince Young Sunday, the table is set for a great Cowboys/Giants matchup this weekend.  If the Cowboys win this the division will be all but sewn up.  Amazing after how they started out this year!
    BTW, anyone else suffer through that Steelers debacle yesterday?  I think my head is still ringing from the hits Big Ben took. I can't ever remember a Superbowl team falling this quickly or completely the next season.

What are you trying to rub it in? :oops:   Seriously though we sucked yesterday, period. The sad part of it all is though, that really should have only been our 3rd loss this season instead of our 7th.  Turnovers have   ruined the season for us. We lead the league in total turnovers and are last in the league in giveaway/takeaway ratio.  Far to careless with the ball this season and it has really cost us. I don't blame all the interceptions on Ben either as they all have not neccessarily his fault.  A lot of them have been, but quite a few are a result of having a couple of gutless recievers who are afraid to take a hit.  Just look at last week wjere 2 of his three interceptions were the result of recivers being afraid to take hits and instead of catching the ball, tipping it up in the air for anyone around to have a shot at it.  Its kind of shame that we have probably the toughest receiver in the game today in Hines Ward and perhaps 2 of the biggest pussies in the game today in Cedrick Wilson and Nate Wasshington.  I also don't think we helped our cause much this past draft picking up Santonio Holmes.  He may end up being a decent reciever in the NFL someday, but I do not believe he will be anywhere near the game breaker that trading up in the first round should have necessitated.
