We sure could run with Saints, Chiefs, Rams, etc... in terms of studs at all positions and scoring. Our D just has to b good, not great.

yes, yes, the cap the cap the money - blah blah... let Howie figure that out. Would those two like uniting across the state with a SB aspirational team? Just sayin...


Eight teams have a chance to win the Super Bowl. The Eagles are one of them. Why are you fantasizing over next season's starting offense? Let's live in the moment here.

And no, the Eagles will not be adding Brown and Bell in the offseason.

Objectively, Merrill hasn’t been good for at least a year. The SB last year was not good.
On a scale of 1 to Chris Brown, how pissed is he?

Foles to the Steelers for Bell and Brown. Make it so.

Merril sucks. He hasn't been good in 10 years. maybe longer. I'm not gonna belabor the point though.

I like Merrill but I thought his call on the 4th down go ahead TD to Tate was lame.

Truth. The past two seasons have had so many legendary moments and the corresponding calls are just awful.

The Tate touchdown, he was too busy yelling "complete! it's complete!!" to realize it was a TD. smh.

true story: when i saw/heard merrill's call on facebook sunday, my first thought was "man, i wish ricky ricardo did eagles games. I'd love to hear him call that". I had no clue he did them until his call went viral.

Kevin Harlan's call of the Philly Special was by far the best from the Super Bowl.

He's one of the best

One of my favorites from that run was Buck's call on the Jeffery bomb against the Vikings. Sometimes less is more.

You crucify Merrill and Lee Corso all the time. Brantt hates non stick figure women on TV, you hate old people.


I disagree with this. I actually hate stick figure women. Fadool is an issue for me because she doesn't even try to look decent (probably due to being married to a producer and having massive job security) and they kept her over more deserving people like Marshall Harris.

It wound up being a beating but at no point in the Vikings game did I feel anything other than completely certain we were going to win that game. Even after the Vikings walked right down the field on the opening possession.
I had a meeting at the Pentagon with lots of generals. They were like from a movie. Better looking than Tom Cruise & stronger.

I felt the same way. Which is interesting in that the Vikings had the ball in the red zone down 14-7 with three minutes till halftime. Then the second half was surreal; I can't ever remember a team of mine coasting to a such a massive win.

Put it in the wrong thread but I think the issue with Merrill is and has been for a few years now that he doesn't see that well anymore, hence the issue with the numbers, figuring out what's going on in the Philly Special, etc.
