  1. There's little doubt in my mind that the Eagles have much better coaching. Not a bit better, much better. And in the NFL, good coaches can get more from their players than a bad coach can get out of better players. It's all about putting players in the best position to succeed. If a player is weak in certain situations, either don't put him in that situation or get a different player in there. Do not, ever, get stubborn and insist on forcing your system on players who can't perform in that system. This is where I give the Eagles the edge. 6 points? No, I would actually take Detroit with the points. But I look for the Eagles to win a close game. Better coaching, better special teams and much better time management.
  2. The Chargers covered something like 7 of 8 last road games and had/have a great record against Detroit. It's odd to see a road team favored but it was the Lions. The Chargers have won 13 of their last 16 games, including six of their last seven against the NFC. Los Angeles has been spectacular on the road as of late, covering in seven of its last eight away games. The Chargers have won seven of their last eight contests against the Detroit Lions. Detroit has covered in just two of its last six games against the AFC. https://www.google.com/amp/s/sportsbookwire.usatoday.com/2019/09/15/los-angeles-chargers-at-detroit-lions-odds-picks-and-best-bets/amp/
  3. Wow. Just wow. I don't think I've seen this many injuries on one team this early in the season. Maybe we should be favored?
  4. Detroit was favored at home by 2 1/2 points over San Diego. Philly, even with their injury report, will be favored, at home, over Detroit. At least, the Las Vegas line.
  5. If both teams were healthy, I would give the nod to Philly, at home. With the Eagles injuries, the Lions have a much better chance to steal a road win. Philly has a quick turnaround since they play Green Bay the Thursday after the Lions game. I'm somewhat optimistic, I wouldn't be surprised with a win or loss.
  6. I guess the NFL will be making more rules to protect these big name players. We wouldn't want jersey sales to suffer. Is Charlie Batch filling in for Ben? 😀
  7. These teams are kicking the feces out of each other.
  8. That Jim Schwartz looks like a pretty smart coach. Why don't we ever get someone good like that? 😣
  9. It's pretty hard to win on the road in the NFL. I hope they do but they will be underdogs.
  10. If Philly has a big division game the week after us, they may overlook us. Or if they have some key injuries. But I would think they still have enough talent to win at home. I sure would love a win though.
  11. Well, something has/had to be done. The players have been getting faster and bigger and the field is still the same size. Concussion concerns should be a reason for rule changes, you're messing with freakin' brain damage.
  12. Call it more consistent though. A roughing the passer penalty can change the outcome of a game. Sometimes it's called, justifiably, other times, not so much. That's why I say it's going to be another reviewable play. We can't have the officials deciding a game on an objectionable penalty.
  13. I agree. The NFL is afraid of all the lawsuits. Put a dress on the QB. At least, that's what they used to say. : )
  14. #25 for Denver screwed up. He should never have touched that receiver when he went down.
  15. They called one just as bad earlier. It won't be long before every play is reviewable.
