Sean Payton is coaching the Pats tonight, I had no idea. Trick plays, crappy defense and weak special teams.

Doesn't matter.

 

Patriots will blow right down the field and get that TD back.


They also can get another before the half ends and then one to start the second half.

 

Patriots will still win this without breaking a sweat.

Eagles continue to leave points up on the board.

 

This will all come back to haunt them at the end of the game.

I predicted the eagles would be up 14-3 at halftime.. before completely melting down.. looking good

 

This isn't the Falcons. Eagles know how to use the run and the clock.

 

But this isn't a huge lead either.

Yeah, Eagles are continuing to not play defense I say. Guess their luck is running out.

 

This one's over.

 

The TD is imminent.

ill do a double back flip and shotgun 6 beers in a row if the eagles win this game

I don't think it's happening the Eagles defense is not playing very well right now you put Tom Brady in the second half against this defense will put 30 points up in 1/2

All defenses in todays NFL are overrated.

 

But I still think the 40 year old is due for some bumps in this game, maybe.......

Eagles defense is going to really have to pick it up if they're going to get their hands on Brady.

Blackhawks fan here

 

I love hockey playoffs but don't get into it as much in the regular season. I love sudden death OT in hockey, nothing like it.

    • Nah, the medical evaluations at the combine are very comprehensive and shared to/by all 32 teams.  No 'leaking' necessary. All teams will know everything. Every single player, all of them, are evaluated.   Here's relative snippets about medicals at the combine from an article about 6 years ago. Warning: even snipped, this is lengthy.   ****************************************************************   "We break down the medical evaluation into two distinct segments: internal medical examinations and orthopedic examinations," Dr. Matava explained.   "During the internal medical exam, players are evaluated by team internists for cardiovascular, kidney, liver and pulmonary health. Part of this examination includes a battery of tests—such as blood work, EKGs and, for certain players, stress tests for their heart—in order to determine if there are any internal issues that might affect the player's ability to participate in the NFL."   "If a player has a history of problems, such as (high blood pressure), sickle cell anemia, diabetes or asthma, those conditions will be noted," Matava continued. "We also make note of their current condition and any treatments they are receiving. Then, we make recommendations to the team regarding that player's ability to play at the NFL level with these medical issues." Every internist receives the opportunity to see every player, but at least one internist evaluates every prospect.   "If a player is healthy, the evaluating internist will compile a general health report which is shared with the other teams. Once the medical evaluations are complete, each player is given an internal medicine grade that can be somewhat unique for each team. This grade then gets factored into their overall medical grade. This is given to the team's general manager and head coach to be used when they make draft decisions."   "The orthopedic evaluations are performed in a similar fashion (as the internal medicine exams)," Matava noted. "There are six exam rooms, and each exam room has six teams represented within it. Players will go to each room and will undergo an orthopedic history and exam, have his X-rays and other imaging studies reviewed and have their information presented to the other doctors in the room."   Additionally, linemen receive an X-ray of their lumbar spine—the only mandatory X-ray—to make sure they do not have a vertebral stress fracture.   "Each team compiles an orthopedist grade based on the players' history of injuries, previous surgeries, current physical examination and current X-ray(s) and MRI(s)," Matava clarified. "Some players will have a very healthy orthopedic grade, but their internal medicine grade might be low because of a medical condition. However, it is more common that a player's internal medicine grade is very high, but they've had significant orthopedic problems that affect their overall medical grade."   "All the X-rays and test results are shared with all of the medical teams, and NFLPS members will occasionally communicate other findings," Matava explained. "However, each team has their own grading scale for players, and each medical team shares their grades with their general managers and coaches."   "I'm biased, but I think the medical side is the most important aspect of the combine because teams can't get this kind of information about a player at any other time in the pre-draft process," Matava offered.   "A team can always ask a guy to do extra bench presses, run the 40-yard dash or have more interviews with coaches, but you are never going to get all of these medical specialists in one room together with this type of comprehensive medical assessment again."
    • Yeah, I’m buying into the Clowney and Harris signings too.  They make a lot of sense to me.  And while I’m warming to Love, I just can’t get to him being worth that #13 pick.  We’d be passing on a huge star to draft Love IMO - Kinlaw, Ruggs, Wirfs, Lamb, Becton.  That’s really good talent we’d have to pass on....
    • A pity for Watson; for the Colts sake, BOB in HOU forever....!
    • Quite interesting. Also of note:   Zac Taylor has small hands himself, and has even coached other small handed QBs including Jared Goff.    Very few QBs with hands at 9 have apparently been super successful, but the NFL is about breaking the norm.
