Do Eagles fans cheer, or would they cheer, if DeSean Jackson was carted off on a stretcher much like Michael Irvin was?

That is where the media spin comes in. I was there for the Michael Irving deal. It wasn't as bad as the media made it out to be. We all did the respectful clapping and hoping that he was OK thing. They just didn't cover that part. They only covered our excited response over the fact that one of their key players wasn't going to be playing the rest of the game.

 

As far as your other examples. They all happen around the different leagues and we just get a focus because of our rep. Maybe not the puking, but we don't beat the sh*t out of people and send them to the hospital like in some recent baseball games that didn't even involve a phila team. Didn't someone recently die at a SF baseball game due to a beating?

 

Ever since we threw snowballs at Santa, we've had a name for ourselves, but honestly, we are no worse than some other cities. In some cases we are even more tame. Just louder and more obnoxious maybe tounge2.gif

Fair enough. Like I said, it's likely that it's simply a few bad apples spoiling the bunch.

 

The Eagles look good on paper this season. I'm still not completely sold on the quarterback position, though. Michael Vick had a very good season last year. However, in his several game absence Kevin Kolb tore it up. If that happens again this season, I don't think Vince Young can do what Kolb did or what Vick can do. But, other than that their front office has made some good moves, like bringing in Ronnie Brown. And the rest of the NFC East has gotten weaker. The Giants and Cowboys had to cut many players to get under the cap and the Redskins, well, they're the Redskins. tounge.gif

 

It's shaping up to be an interesting year in the NFL, no doubt. All I know is, the Miami Dolphins, the team I support, won't be going anywhere especially with the Patriots and the Jets at the top of the AFC East.

You guys bad mouth Vince Young like he doesn't win or anything, jeez. Off the field issues are one thing, not getting along with your head coach is another, but having a winning record and a decent one is nothing to bad mouth. Tavaris Jackson did nothing with the Vikings, besides handing it to the best running back in the NFL.

 

Is anyone gonna make a fantasy football league this year? I haven't played in years and looking to return.

Yup, the arguement that will win every time. Talk sh*t about his problems, his head, or his sh*tty release, but he wins football games something Tavaris Jackson and other good quarterbacks can't figure out how to. So keep playing that Young haters card, it is ok, but the guy does win games and you cannot deny that. I'm not a fan of the guy, but don't sit there and blast the guy for winning, and winning while having bad friction with a head coach who didn't want him.

 

Saying Jackson is "probably" better than Vince Young is retarded, but we will see. I like Carroll as a coach, but picking up Sidney Rice with no solid QB just wasn't smart in my eyes, not unless they are throwing the season for a QB like someone said, Andrew Luck or Landry Jones.

Yes, Vince Young isn't a bad game manager. However, I want to counter the argument of his record, which is 30-17, withthe fact that Kerry Collins brought that team to a 13-3 record. Collins' stats that year weren't stellar by any means, much like Vince Young, but he managed the game well and didn't have to have great stats, just like Vince Young. That team as a whole was better than its quarterback. If Collins can bring that team to 13-3, it's no surprise VY does well there. You can, however, raise the argument that Young won more games than Collins did in 2009 and 2010. I don't know, I'm just playing devil's advocate here. tounge.gif

 

I do, however, think that neither Young or Tavaris Jackson are right for Seattle. I think Young will struggle in the starting role on a team that doesn't have such weapons as Chris Johnson. Young could become a decent quarterback with the right coaches and players. I think Philadelphia is the right place for him because he has good coaches, receivers, not Chris Johnson, but OK running backs and he's not in the starting role. There is no pressure on VY.

I haven't seen Rocky around much these days, so it may need to be started by someone else. I can't be responsible, but I sure hope someone starts it up, because the GTAF league was my only fantasy league.

 

1st pre-season game is this thursday. Man o man, I love football season.

We normally use yahoo right?

 

I'll gladly set one up if someone helps me decide the settings. I'm in the window to set it up, do you guys just want a standard head to head league. The default settings?

 

These are the standard head to head settings: http://football.fantasysports.yahoo.com/f1...tings?type=head

 

I have only played twice with a friend so I don't know too much, I just wanna get the ball rolling. I'll probably suck though.

I think I am going to go ask Narcis to make a sig to highlight the league, just so that we can get more people.

Just something with an American football in the background and it say's "GTAF Fantasy Football"

 

This picture is the scheme that yahoo uses for it and you can use this as a template, so you have an idea of what to use. Yahoo Fantasy Football

Well this isn't the same league as previous years since the other guy isn't here. We are in no way linked to the other one.

 

Some one will have to remember.

 

also I have a bad feeling that I will probably end up drafting like all Texans. Just because I don't know crap about anybody else. confused.gif

 

P.S. JJ Watt, our first round pick, is apparently mauling the offensive line up during running plays. Man I hope he plays well!

 

Man DOOM!, that first music link to Ivy-League Zombies, that is a good song.

what the f*ck... I demand they open their pocket books cause obviously they have a secret compartment filled with lots and lots of money....

 

f*cking christ. Eagles are becoming the Yankee's (or Jets) of football. As long as Andy Reed doesnt become as annoying as Rex i suppose i wont have too many issues...

 

 

oh and i signed up for the Fantasy league. My team name is the Spokane Shock biggrin.gif

How the hell do they have that much money? It's like they don't care.

 

also, I love the pic in the article, Glover Quin...haha!

 

Speaking of Glover he is going to be our starting safety, along side Danieal Manning. It's amazing how one offseason can completely change your secondary. Johnathon Joseph and Jason Allen look to be our starting CB's. Brandon Harris our 2nd 2nd round pick is looking real good apparently, he seems to know his stuff, if just a bit undersized.

 

Things are looking up, especially with an actual defensive coordinator rather than trash that has never been a coordinator before.

 

I noticed someone joined Tubbs, I am watching the league like a hawk. We are at an even number right now, so if anybody joins we need them in two's.

I'm ******* livid at Jerry Reese right now. You mean to tell me he couldn't re-work other contracts to keep some of these guys? In the NFL, $2mil is chump change. Eli has to be pissed. Loses his most reliable option in Steve Smith to a hated division rival.

 

This will be the third straight year NY misses the playoffs.

Steve Smith is one, or the most underrated WR in the NFL. Eagles, had a lot of money, but so did a few other teams, other teams chose to go for the 're-signing' method rather than taking a dip in FA. For some reason, for just this year, the cap room went up or something or teams got extra money, not for sure what happened.

 

This is the first time I have ever been all giddy about pre-season games. Gonna watch my Cowboys play the Broncos rather than the national televised Seahawks vs Chargers.

Am I the only one who really enjoys pre-season? I haven't missed a 1st and 3rd pre-season game in [probably] my whole life. Eagles and Ravens tonight cool.gif

 

The Steve Smith pick up came out of nowhere and was a bit odd. It's not like we are soft in the receiver squad, and I read that he might not be able to play until mid season due to his foot surgery. In any event, I think he will look pretty good in green.

 

All of those years of saving money and proper cap management seem to be paying off this year for us Eagles fans.

Don't give up hope yet. We've still got Manningham, Nicks, Hixon, Calhoun, etc. and it looks like Osi will stay for at least one more season. And I hope Beckum can step up as a TE.

Domenik Hixon cannot be trusted. He can't stay healthy. He had the concussion, a torn ACL and now he's just returning to practice from a knee sprain? Even when Hixon is healthy the only thing he does well is return kicks and punts. He's got the height but he's got no hands. Steve Smith was the most reliable receiver. If you needed a first down on third and long, he was your man. This will hurt more than some Giants fans like to think it will. As if Eli Manning didn't have it tough enough last season, this year Hakeem Nicks will draw more coverage without Smith.

 

The Giants and the Cowboys have been cutting important players from their rosters to get under the cap and the Eagles are benefiting the most. Because while Dallas and New York do that, Philadelphia is adding everybody. It's nice when you see a division rival get worse, but it's even nicer when you see their team get worse and your team get better at the same time. I really don't see another team winning the NFC East. But, that's why they play the games.

But those cats aren't money like Steve Smith is on third down, man. They don't run precise routes like Smith, either. If I was Eli, I'd walk in to Reese's office and tell, "WTF is going on? You let my security blanket get away, to the friggin' EAGLES of all teams!"

 

Mike Francesca nailed it - the Giants have major egg on their face. If they were serious about re-signing Smith, why fool around and let him field offers from other teams? Get it done!

 

...and don't even get me started on the TE position.
