The Eagles "nasty" schedule so far through week 7 consists of teams with a combined record of 19-20 (below .500). Not a very nasty schedule if you ask me. Not to mention they were lucky to win both the SD and KC games.


What teams are better in the NFC in your opinion?


Tampa Bay, Atlanta, Seattle, Dallas, and Carolina are all better than the Eagles, IMO. If Brunell and Santana Moss keep up what they're doing, I'd also say the Redskins are better as well.

Those of you that keep calling the Chargers my team. They are not my team. The only reason I was in this PBC is that the Bucs were on bye.

But then you list Tampa as a better team, they have litterally played no one! The FIVE teams they have played have a combined 13 wins!

and tampa is going to have a total unproven at the helm.

Yeah, but I never said the Bucs have had a nasty schedule. Our schedule has been a piece of cake and is about to get real hard, but I still think the Bucs are one of the top teams in the NFC right now. They have the #1 defense and the #5 rushing attack, they will control the clock well this year if they can avoid the costly mistakes they were making last year.

Funny how the eagles can win the tough games while playing poorly, and these other teams don't seem to do that. (In the NFC)

Let's not forget that washington beat up on the niners AND gave up 17 pts, something the eagles didn't.


Do you remember that Carolina team that beat the Eagles in the NFC championship? This years team is much like that team again.

you are mr. circular logic.

you reason for the eagles NOT being good is their schedule, but you don't hold the bucs to that same criteria?

the eagles have beaten better teams than most of these other claimaints to the best in the nfc.

Its really irrelevant anyway, as the eagles can prove it on the field.

its easy to have the number one defense when you play cake teams and control the clock btw.

Yea, I remember that team. Couple of points, that team beat an absoloutely decimated eagles team with bad line depth (injruy), no westrbook, no carlos emmons. The healthy version of that eagles team beat the panthers that year.

And while this year's team maybe like that team, their record certainly doesn't -- and that is assuming that this year's eagles team is constructed similarly to the 2003 eagles team -- which it isn't. They have added owens, trotter and kearse (among others) since that time.

not a valid argument in the least.

And for that logic to work, the Eagles team would have to be very similar as well. Let's review:

McNabb = McNabb (I'll give you QB is very similar)
TO > Thrash
Lewis > Pinkston
Westbrook > Staley
LJ Smith > Chad Lewis

On defense:

Kearse > Kalu
Trotter > Wayne
Sheppard > Vincent
Sheldon Brown > Taylor

Basically, the Eagles are more talented in every facet of the game than they were in the 2003 NFC Championship. So, your logic fails to account for or even consider that incredibly relevant evidence.
